Falcons acquire defensive lineman Kentavious Street in trade with Eagles

Flower Branch, Ga. — The Atlanta Falcons added to their defensive line with a Monday night trade.

The team announced that the Falcons have acquired defensive lineman Kentavious Streit and a 2025 seventh-round draft pick from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a 2024 sixth-round draft pick.

Streit joined the Eagles as a free agent this past season and started one game and appeared in a total of eight games with Philadelphia. He made four tackles.

Street is in his fifth season in the NFL. The San Francisco 49ers selected him in the fourth round in 2018 out of North Carolina State. Street was with the 49ers for three years, recording a forced fumble, three sacks and 42 tackles in 35 game appearances with four starts.

Then, in 2022, Streit signed with the New Orleans Saints, where he played in 17 games, racking up 3½ sacks and 29 tackles.

Street is 6-foot-2 and 287 pounds. He attended Coffee High School in Douglas, Georgia.

The Falcons trade comes shortly after the team announced defensive end Grady Jarrett’s season-ending injury. Jarrett tore his ACL last Sunday in the Falcons’ Week 8 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Falcons head coach Arthur Smith confirmed the severity of his injury on Monday afternoon.

The 2023 NFL trade deadline is Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.
