Former Philadelphia Eagles CEO Joe Banner believes the Eagles will, and should be, "very interested" in the 33-year-old future Hall Of Fame quarterback this offseason if he becomes available.

"I’m a big fan of his, and I recognize he’s not playing well right now," Banner told The Philadelphia Inquirer via BleedingGreenNation.com. "I think, if he’s available, they’d be very interested and they should be. If they get him, assuming they can fix this line, I think they’d do very, very well with him. If that opportunity presents itself, I think they’d be aggressive and I think they should be doing that."

In early November, ESPN's Chris Mortensen said the Eagles are "at the top" of Howie Roseman's list.

And then two weeks later, Peter King listed Philadelphia among five possible landing spots for Wilson via a trade.

After two straight wins and dominant performances by Jalen Hurts and the Eagles, Philadelphia loss an ugly one to the Giants on Sunday, highlighted by three interceptions from Hurts, who has had an up and down season.

The Eagles are 5-7 and the second-year QB has completed 60.1-percent of his passes for 2,435 yards, 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions. On the ground, however, Hurts has been electric rushing for 695 yards and eight scores.
