Found April 14, 2012 on Eagles Addict:
Mary Kay Cabot, of the Plain Dealer in Cleveland, reported that the Philadelphia Eagles are one of four teams interested in trading up to the No. 4 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft. Not to discredit Cabot, who’s reputation is solid, but it seems awfully convenient that the report comes out of Cleveland.  The Browns, as you may know, are the holders of the No. 4 pick. Someone within the Browns’ organization could have leaked this information in an effort to drum up business for such a trade.  If the Browns want to move down, the best way to maximize value is to create the notion that there is a market for their pick. However, that’s neither here nor there.  The closer we get to the draft, the more the rumor mill will start to churn.  Sure, the Eagles could be interested, but at what price?  And for who would they be willing to move up that far? There are only three players I could imagine the Eagles would move up into the top five for: QB Ryan Tannehill, OT Matt Kilil and CB Morris...

Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid Tells Vince Young, “It’s Not You, It’s Me” and VY Totally Buys It

This probably wound up being an interception. Photo via SB Nation. Vince Young will not return to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012. This reality is a surprise to no one, and it makes me happy to no end. Young is on the job market, and he spoke with Houston radio station KILT about why things didn’t work with the Eagles and his search for a new team, among other topics. Philadelphia’s...

Eagles going after Ryan Tannehill?

With the rumor floating around that the Philadelphia Eagles are looking to trade up and acquire the fourth overall pick from the Cleveland Browns, it only makes sense that they would be targeting Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill. If the Eagles want to move on from Michael Vick after the 2012 season, they can do so, since they gave themselves a way out of his deal after the...

Eagles 2012 Draft Prospect: Florida Running Back Chris Rainey

The Eagles have tried to use Chad Hall as a hybrid type of player in their offense. University of Florida running back Chris Rainey projects to have the same type of role in the NFL and the Eagles seem to think he could be an option for them, bringing Rainey in for a private workout. At 5-8 and 180 pounds, Rainey is by no means a big guy. Chad Hall actually has seven pounds on...

Philadelphia Eagles 2012 Draft: Pot Smoking Baby Daddy Visiting Eagles Monday

Troubled 2012 NFL draft prospect CB Janoris Jenkins is scheduled to meet with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, according to Ralph Vacchiano or the New York Daily News. Photo: articles.orlandosentinel.com Based on just his skill level, most draft scouts have Jenkins rated as a first-round caliber cornerback in this year’s draft.  However, it’s his off-the-field issues that...

Report: “Little Chance” Eagles Will Trade Up to #4 in the Draft

Speculation about the intentions of the Philadelphia Eagles in this year’s draft have been running amok for months. And the team knows just how to keep us all guessing. Meeting with Robert Griffin III at the NFL Combine. Hosting a number of quarterbacks for pre-draft visits. And per a report on Saturday, making an inquiry with the Cleveland Browns about trading up to the number...

Report: Eagles will likely draft a quarterback early

According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, the Philadelphia Eagles will likely draft a quarterback early in this year’s draft.  If they can’t get Ryan Tannehill they might go after either Brandon Weeden or Kirk Cousins in the second round. This is clearly a sign the Eagles aren’t confident in Michael Vick’s durability and let’s face it, he’s going to be 32...

The Philadelphia Eagles’ Course Correction May Yield Huge Results

Last year was supposed to be the year for the Philadelphia Eagles. You had to feel good about it. After watching other teams scoop free agents and add big name talent for years, the Eagles organization stepped out of character and went on a spending free, seemingly gobbling up every big name available. Then something went horribly awry. A team that was already facing a lookout shortened...

5 Late Round Draft Prospects That Would Look Great on the Philadelphia Eagles

Patrick McDermott/Getty Images The Philadelphia Eagles are in a different position than they have ever really been in under Andy Reid.  The team is coming off a failure of a season, but interestingly they don’t exactly have many needs to fill and possess a wealth of talent. Even more interesting, that talent is spread around on both sides of the ball. The Eagles have a good offensive...

Andy Reid Tells Vince Young He’s “Too Good” to Return to Philly

Vince Young was most known last season for his “Dream Team” comments and for looking incredibly lost in the Eagles West Coast Offense. A report from Bleeding Green Nation says that Vince Young recently asked Andy Reid about returning to the Eagles in 2012 and the answer may surprise you… “One of the biggest things [...]

Eagles 2012 Draft Prospect: Nebraska Linebacker Lavonte David

The Eagles made a huge upgrade to the middle linebacker position when they traded for DeMeco Ryans. However, they can still use some help on the outside and will more than likely look to the draft to do so. A solid option to do this would be Nebraska linebacker Lavonte David. At 6-1 and 233 pounds, one of the biggest knocks against David is his size. However, based on looking...

Eagles reportedly interested in trading up to No. 4

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles and St. Louis Rams are interested in trading up for the 4th pick in the draft. Could the Eagles target Tannehill? It’s fairly safe to assume that the Rams would be targeting Justin Blackmon, but the Eagles interest is not as clear. Blackmon would certainly add another dimension to their offense...

NFL Draft Rumor: Cold water for Eagles trade with Browns

We all know that the air is filled with lies this time of year as teams posture and pose to try and create scenarios for draft day. If a Philly report is true, the thoughts of trading the Browns fourth pick to the Eagles is just another in a long line of misinformed nuggets. Citing a high-level Eagles source, CSN Philly’s Reuben Frank reports that the report of Philly’s interest...

The Qadry Ismail factor in pre-Draft team visits...and Eagles say goodbye to Trevor Laws...

Listening to my buddy and former NFL star wide receiver Qadry ("The Missile") Ismail last night on WBAL-AM radio, and he was talking about his experience as a pre-draftee prospect coming out of Syracuse back in 1993... This story is also pertinent because Qadry hails from the same hometown as our esteemed GK Emeritus Brizer... (i.e., Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania)...Qadry...
