Hardly Knew “Di”
Birds Trade Newly Acquired DB To Titans
Less than 10 days after acquiring Ugo Amadi in a trade with Seattle, the Eagles have traded him away.
The team sent Amadi, a safety who played in Sunday’s preseason game against the Browns, to the Titans in exchange for a late-round pick swap in the 2024 draft.
The Eagles are acquiring a sixth-round pick for Amadi and a seventh-rounder, per NFL Network. Amadi was expected to compete to play safety and nickel corner for the Eagles when they acquired him Aug. 15.

It’s an odd move given both the short time and the position, as the Eagles supposedly traded for Amadi to add another body at their weakest position. His sudden departure suggests that Howie Roseman, the team’s executive vice president of football operations, has other plans to improve the team’s talent and depth at safety.
The Eagles have an open roster spot, although all NFL teams must cut their rosters to 53 by Aug. 30.
Amadi, who had played more than 55 percent of Seattle’s defensive snaps in each of the past two seasons, played 27 total snaps against the Browns on Sunday and six more on special teams.
