Eric Rowe trade conditions

Eagles NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles confirmed Wednesday that they traded Eric Rowe to the New England Patriots for a fourth-round pick in 2018 that can become a third-round pick based on playing time conditions. It was originally reported that Patriots guard Josh Kline was also part of the deal. He is not.

According to a source, the fourth-round pick will become a third-round pick if Rowe plays in at least 50 percent of the Patriots defensive snaps either in 2016 or 2017, which feels like an attainable figure.

Here are the Eagles' 2018 draft picks, updated after the Rowe trade:
