The Philadelphia Eagles acquired cornerback Kevin Thomas and a conditional seventh-round draft pick in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts that sent linebackers Moise Fokou and Greg Lloyd to the Colts.

Daily Haze: Five Post-Hype Players Worth Drafting This Year

No matter what I say or do, I won’t be able to convince owners who drafted Michael Vick last year that they should take him again this year. The damage has been done. It’s irreparable. Fantasy owners don’t forget, and they hold grudges. It’s part of our game. But for the other 11 owners in any given league, Vick and other post-hype players are ripe for the picking. The five...
