Reggie Bush to Miami?

Posted: July 28th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 26 Comments »

Jay Glazer reported on Twitter that Miami and Saints worked out a trade.  Now Bush has to agree to new deal with Miami to push the deal through.  Bush was reported to be an Eagles target.  Miami needs a playmaker.  They weren’t able to work anything out with Ahmad Bradshaw or Deangelo Williams so in turn made the deal for Bush.

    Although I would have loved to see Reggie Bush in Eagles green I can understand not paying a backup RB so much money.

    However the Eagles better get going today. It’s nice to see all the UDFA and Rookie signings, but most of the best veteran Free Agents are dropping like flies.

    All I want is DRC, Babin and Tulloch!

    Haynesworth traded to NE for 2013 5th. Getting rid of the Eagles rumors that I never really bought anyway.

    Why in the world would he shift to another 3-4 team????? I really had my hopes up on him!

    He was traded so it isn’t like he hand-picked the Pats. That being said, I would think they spoke to Fat Al or his agent first though.

    Bummed that we miss out on Albert, but he would’ve been a luxury anyway.

    Does NE have to pay him all that money now? To be a role player?

    “I think there are going to be a lot of opportunities in front of us, players looking for short-term deals who want to win a championship,” Roseman told Silver. “Any good player that we think can help our team, we’re going to take a hard look at.”

    Howie was either dead wrong or was looking fwd to going FA dumpster diving once ppl got cut.

    Offer a 4th to the Patriots to flip him to us.

    I know that this is probably not going to happen, but …

    Wouldn’t it be great if the Pats flipped Haynesworth to the Eagles for a higher pick? Belichek and Reid like to trade with each other and Belichek seems like enough of an asshole to screw over Shanahan. I think Shanahan’s head would explode!

    @mcud, you beat me.

    The Redskins would file some complaint with the league. No idea what that would do though. Remember when the Packers sent Favre to the Jets? There were stipulations in the trade that he couldn’t be traded to the Vikings.

    just got Babin. 5 yrs(?). no numbers yet

  12. 12 Iowa Eagle said at 9:20 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    Tommy, what do you think of the Babin deal being 5 years?!?

  13. 13 Tommy Lawlor said at 9:22 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    If within rules, I’m all for trading a pick for Big Al. I’d love that move.

    Stoked to get Babin signed. LDE is set.

    I’m gonna write up a post on stuff and will discuss LB. I’m confused.

  14. 14 Matt said at 9:33 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    Philly says 30M over 5 years, but only 7 M guaranteed… No way we keep him until 36, seems like a good signing for the money

  15. 15 Matt said at 9:39 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    Tommy, I was thinking about pulling a switcheroo with NE and I dont see it. While both teams would love that kind of deal and we have a creative trade history, I dont see them risking their reputati0n as a trade partner for a fourth round pick or whatever it turns out to be..

  16. 16 Eric said at 9:56 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    They need insurance for Graham. He probably can’t do anything this year and Parker will probably be cut soon anyway.

  17. 17 Eaglepride101 said at 10:11 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    To be honest if it’s 5-6 mill guaranteed over 5 years this is a great deal. I mean JP is getting 3.5 mill THIS YEAR alone! With everyone overpaying for FAs so far, we got a steal and a great deal.

  18. 18 CVD said at 10:17 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    I was thinking what u guys are but would the pats really risk looking like a bad trade partner? Now if AL starts complaining about playing in a 34 again and is a problem, then I could see it happening. Or he is such a problem that they cut him.

    I would love to have AL on this team.

    I confess to being a bit disappointed that Haynesworth went to NE. Though, I did think it was a long shot to get him in Philly. However, I believe that there is a good opportunity for one of our DT’s to emerge under Washburn. We have Bunk and Pat, Dixon and Laws plus Teo and maybe Albiamiri. That is a lot of talent and one or two of those guys might just be really good in the new system.

    Some questions?

    My football knowledge is pretty much centered on the Eagles so I’m wondering what is going on in Dallas and NY. It seems like both teams are rebuilding their offensive lines with free agents. Do they have the cap room to do this without compromising their teams longer term? This seems especially true of NY since they flamed out with a big defensive spend a couple of years ago. Does all this free agent spending give the Eagles some long term advantage that isn’t offset by the Eagles bad results in first round picks on defense?

  20. 20 Iowa Eagle said at 10:26 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    Anyone else find it a coincidence that Trent Cole’s deal was $28 over 5 years with $12 guaranteed, and Babin’s is being reported almost the exact same… Pretty sure the FO didn’t want to make any waves.

  21. 21 CVD said at 10:33 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    teo is a dend. but i agree. we have some talent at DT. it would have been nice but i still like our dline now that wash is in charge

  22. 22 CVD said at 10:37 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    the eagles first round D picks were pretty decent. the only bad one was macdougal. bunk and patt were never going be sexy because their job wasnt to get sacks. i think they did pretty good at run stuffing and taking up lineman.

  23. 23 Arby said at 10:39 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    Happy to get Babin – wonder if his deal is Kardashianed too?

  24. 24 izzylangfan said at 10:52 AM on July 28th, 2011:


    I was under the impression that Teo was used mostly inside last year.

    I think Bunk and Patt turned out well but I was referring to bad luck with McDougal and Graham as well as #2 pick Albiamiri.

  25. 25 Tommy Lawlor said at 10:54 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    @ Arby…

    You just couldn’t resist could you? 🙂

    I’m in favor of all uses of the word “Kardashianed” becoming a regular term.

  26. 26 cvd said at 11:02 AM on July 28th, 2011:

    Yeah I think they did use teo mostly inside on 3rd downs. Honestly I really don’t remember seeing him except for like 2 games. But he should be in our Dend rotation this year

    Macdougal was horrible especially cuz I think we traded up for him. I really like BG but the injury sux. Abiamiri is just the most injury prone guy on the earth.

    It always seems like when you start a rookie all year, he gets a bad injury at some point.
