There is no evidence that Ramsey will fall off. Most people don't let people of his caliber go to other teams, so this is kind of a unique situation.
Teams get more desperate midseason, especially if they think a trade can push them into the playoffs. For all we know too, they could be really regretting not signing Gilmore.
This is obviously all hypothetical, but I think it could work.
Agreed with this, and your trade makes sense.
I'll also add two points:
1- If Goedert is only useful for his blocking, then he would be the easy TE to include in the deal. He only has major value to PHI if he is a receiving threat as well. I don't really see them trading Ertz, though, so including Goedert makes the most sense.
2- While elite CB do fade over time, we're talking years... they prove themselves on a rookie contract, get a big contract and are labeled as elite CBs, then they fade around when it is time for an extension. Ramsey, on the other hand, is 24 and was drafted in 2016 -- he's in his 3rd year, so we're talking about 5+ years down the road. No risk involved for PHI.
