Waiting For Next Year:
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 in trading up to the fourth selection was “just another pre-draft rumor,” and there is “little chance” the Eagles would jump 11 spots in the draft’s first round.
Frank’s Eagles source did concede that Philadelphia and Cleveland have “spoken several times,” but that could have just as much to do with Browns G.M. Tom Heckert and Eagles coach Andy Reid’s longstanding relationship as it may with Philly’s intentions to make a costly draft-day maneuver.
But they did talk, right? So you’re saying there’s a chance??!?!?? As I said earlier in the day, I’m still enjoying this ride. Hope you are too.

LET'S MAKE A DEAL
The Browns have the No. 4 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft, but could they deal it? It looks like they have several suitors.
Hey! Come to our draft party!
We are getting closer and closer to the NFL draft and it is officially time to believe everything and nothing. The Browns will draft Ryan Tannehill. The Browns will draft Matt Kalil. The Browns will trade the pick to Miami or Philadelphia. The Browns have to draft an offensive player. Well, on second thought they could draft Morris Claiborne. The fact...
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.
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...
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.
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...
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...
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 [...]
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...
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...
If the Cleveland Browns want to go toe-to-toe with the upper-echelon teams and compete for postseason contention in the upcoming 2012 NFL season, then it’s probably a good thing the club has a chance to get its feet wet right out of the gate against four potential playoff teams in preseason action.

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...
