The Eagles traded the 15th overall, a fourth and sixth round pick to Seattle in exchange for the 12th overall. Talk from experts had the Eagles moving to seventh for a chance to get Cox, a defensive end from Mississipi State. Cheers went up from the crowd as the Eagles took Cox.

Philadelphia Eagles Get Peanuts In Return For Asante Samuel

Asante Samuel has been traded to the Atlanta Falcons for what has been described as an “undisclosed pick” in this year’s draft.  The consensus, though not official, is that it’s Atlanta’s sixth-rounder.

I do, and the two best words I can use to describe it without turning this into a profanity-laced tirade are angry and disgusted. That was the Eagles’ fourth loss in a span of five games to drop their record...
