The Eagles Should Look Into Byrd.

Posted September 05, 2013
With the Eagles having so many problems especially defensively at this time I think it's time for the Eagles to consider trying something they haven't done very often and that's to attempt to trade for another NFL player during the season. Certainly they shouldn't overpay to get him, but they certainly should make an inquiry about him. With that being the case what is overpaying for a safety who has had 18 interceptions, and 10 force fumbles in 4 seasons? In case you all didn't know in that same span the Eagles safeties Macho Harris, Sean Jones, Kurt Coleman, Nate Allen, and Quintin Mikell have only 16 interceptions and three forced fumbles. Considering most of us on this site wanted the Eagles to either draft a rookie safety with their second round pick or trade back into the first round to get one, then would trading away a second for a pro bowl safety in his prime really be that bad of an idea? Lets not forget some of the woeful draft choices the Eagles have mad in the past as well. In fact the poor drafts of the past are why the Eagles are where they are to begin with. If the Eagles really are acting like they are trying to win this year then they need to be doing everything possible to try and do so. I get Byrd is hurt right now, but when he's ready to play he would make this defense better. Roseman needs to at least make a phone call.
