The Saints acquired the No. 16 pick, No. 19 pick, and a sixth-rounder from the Eagles in exchange for the No. 18 pick, a third-round pick, a seventh-rounder, a 2023 first-round pick, and a 2024 second-round pick. This gives the Saints 3 picks in the top 50. 

On Tuesday's 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington breakdown the trade and tell you why each team decided to make the move.

Brady Quinn: "Maybe the Eagles are thinking, let's go ahead and plan more for the future, so we can have more sustained success, either building around Jalen Hurts, or having the draft capital in the future to trade up to replace him.
From a Philly standpoint, this roster is loaded to the point where Hurts has another opportunity to prove whether or not he's the guy but guess what; If he's not, Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, they are all sitting there waiting. And I guarantee you, I don't know which one it will be that will go in this order, but I guarantee you they're going to go one, two in next year's draft. I guarantee that."
