Buddy of mine (Eagles fan) texted me saying Eagles are trading up with Phins.

Swap first's and acquire both of eagles 2nd's?

Looks like they are going after Fletcher Cox, getting cold feet Panthers will snatch him up.


Not sure maybe some Eagles "insiders" are throwing this out?

I live in South Jersey, I've heard the same rumor. Philly is looking to trade with the Dolphins. Cox and Gilmore are possibly Philly's targets!!!

I will do back flips down the street if this happens.

I personally think Tanny will be available at 15, and two extra 2nd's?

HELL YES PLEASE!

Makes no sense to get both seconds unless giving them a third plus

Interesting. Considering they supposedly screwed us on that supposed D Jax trade (never figured out how true that was), it will be interesting to see how business gets done between the two teams.

"Sorry Jeff, we kinda screwed you there. We'll overcompensate a bit today."

or

"We screwed you once, and we just diddit again!"

I've heard that the Cowgirls may want our pick so they can get Barron.

According to Armando, 3 teams have spoken to the Dolphins.

Good

I'll take a bidding war for our slot.

Swap first and two seconds. Take that!

If Philly is dumb enough to give up both seconds you take it. An offer like that doesn't come around that often. If that happened, I'd try and drop back a few more spots and grab another second then take Weeden with the first and still have 5 more picks before pick 74.

Oh to dream......

I suggested this weeks ago that big fat Andy Reid would pull off this trade for Dontari Poe, but only for 1 second round pick. #51.

Would depend on who's there when we pick if a bidding war ensues. Ideally if we were to get two teams wanting to trade up for the same player then we can pit them against each other and take the best offer.

Barron seems to be the target of at least 2 teams and Cox is coveted by Philly that I know of .. I've also heard NE and SD have looked into trading up for Barron ...

As bad as Jacksonville reportedly wants to get down, I can't imagine they'd pass up on 2 seconds, and they're even rumored to be taking Cox. Don't know why Philly'd be talking to us instead of them.

Wait, if we're trading with the Eagles I want more than both of their 2nd's. Those guys screwed us with A.J. Feeley and I'm still looking for payback.

I suggest both 2nds and a free kick to their GM's balls. Then we call it even.

If that is true, we should give the Panthers a call and see if they are willing to move up a spot. Don't know what they would be willing to offer us, but we would still be in good position to draft Kuechly, Barron, or Floyd.

it does seem as though Philly (for Cox) and the Cowboys (for Barron) are the likely trade partners.

Every expert/talking head/mock drafter has us taking Tanny at 8, yet 90% of them don't think he's worth a top ten pick. Again, I say we take our chances and trade down a few spots to were he should be selcted... 14-15 sounds right, and ironically those are Philly and Cowboys picks...

I doubt we get more then their 1st and 2nd pick though to move up, unless they throw in some sorta depth player or 7th rounder...

Everyone says the jags at #7 are the hot spot,but I believe our pick is the hottest. Can you imagine? Getting our biggest need in a pass rusher and picking up an extra 2nd and maybe something else? Schools out! Getting me a drink for sure soon as we trade down! May need 1 anyway if we pick coples at #8.lol

Even if we trade down to Philly and swap firsts, get the early second and third. Sounds good to me.

actually I still think 7 is the better spot. It all depends on what the Jags are asking for vs what we're asking for vs who's left on the board...

No idea honestly, hence why I was asking.

Like I said, Eagles fan buddy texted me this. Not sure if its some Eagles "insiders" that are tweeting this or whatever junk?

We have exactly one elite player on this team. Why trade down?

It is not like they have a strong history of cleaning up in the second round, either.

I can't see Philly giving up both 2nd rounders. According to the draft value chart, the 51st pick would be fair value.

#8 Pick = 1400

for

#15 Pick = 1050
#51 Pick = 390
-------
1440

If we were to trade with the Cowboys then it would have to be for their 2nd round pick #45.

#14 Pick = 1100
#45 Pick = 450
------
1550

They may even want a late round pick from us thrown in or a possible swap of selections but I guess it all comes down to who's there at #8 and how desperate these guys are to get their guy.

^ You have those flip flopped. Dallas has 14 and Philly has 15.

your friend probably meant we will give our 1 and 2 for their 1 and 2........

That trade would be awesome though.

Not sure I understand why we would do that. Our 1 and 2 is higher in both rounds, unless it's our 1 and 2 for their 1 and both 2's.

If Miami can trade down again w/ say Cincy and the phins end up w/ Fleener, Weeden, & Zeitler someone will have to call 911 for me
