The Philadelphia Eagles bolstered its receiving core Tuesday. The Eagles acquired wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham from the Tennessee Titans for offensive lineman Dennis Kelly, the team announced. Green-Beckham put up solid numbers in his first season with the Titans, recording 32 receptions for 549 yards and four touchdowns. Tennessee was more concerned with his maturity and growth off the field than his play on the field and decided to flip him for some offensive line help.

Kelly has only started 15 games in his career — 10 of which coming in his 2012 rookie season. The Titans are going to need some extra depth in the offensive line department because of the running back core the Titans have in Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry now. Kelly probably won’t earn a Pro Bowl nomination any time soon, but it would be nice to have a backup in case one of the starters does go down. We’ll see if Green-Beckham will have a better time in Philadelphia than he had in Tennessee.
