The Jacksonville Jaguars traded cornerback Josiah Scott to the Philadelphia Eagles for cornerback Jameson Houston and a sixth-round draft pick in 2023. Scott, a fourth-round selection in 2020, became expendable after Jacksonville signed Shaquill Griffin in free agency and used a second-rounder on Tyson Campbell. Houston was considered a long shot to make the Eagles’ opening day roster and likely will be in the same spot in Jacksonville. 

Wednesday night the NFL released the schedule for the upcoming 2021 season, which will include 17 regular season games. The Eagles will begin their season on the road in Atlanta. 

The New Orleans Saints announced today their 2021 schedule by SeatGeek, for which the regular season kicks off on Sunday, Sept. 12, hosting the Green Bay Packers and features five prime-time games for the fifth time in franchise history.
