NFL Injury Report:
There has been speculation that the Philadelphia Eagles are attempting
to trade Jeremy Maclin, but Geoff Mosher of CSN Philly reports the team isn’t
actively shopping the wide receiver.
Despite the fact that Maclin is entering the final year of
his rookie contract, a team source told Mosher that the Eagles intend to hang
on to the fifth-year pro.
Philadelphia made Maclin a first-round pick in 2009, but he
still hasn’t surpassed the 1,000 yard mark in a single season. He’s also dealt
with injuries, as he’s only played in a full slate of 16 games once.
Still, Mosher notes that the only way the Eagles would trade
the wide receiver is if “another team made them an irresistible offer.”
Maclin’s name has been tied to the Indianapolis Colts ever
since owner Jim Isray indicated that he was nearing a deal for a wide receiver.
However, Mosher notes that there have been no indications that the Eagles and
Colts have discussed Maclin.

I wanted this piece to be a history of the best tradebacks in Eagles draft lore. Trading back is when you deal an earlier pick to another team for two or more of their later picks...or some other valuable consideration.

The NFL is hell-bent on passing a new rules proposal that would penalize a runner for lowering his head and leading with the helmet at the point of contact with a defender.
