NFL Trade Rumors:
Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly he’s been informed that the Philadelphia Eagles have no intention of using their franchise tag this offseason.
Mosher adds that CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is only player they would even consider.
Rodgers-Cromartie, 26, is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the next few weeks, but applying their franchise tag to him would run the Eagles $10.7 million next season.

The Philadelphia Eagles have the fourth overall pick in the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft. The teams with the best record get the top picks right? Yeah, lets just go with that.
