2015 Offseason Overview

Posted: March 10th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 2,148 Comments »

Happy Free Agency Day!!!

Be patient. Signings don’t officially start until 4pm. Give the Eagles til 430pm before you start complaining about the lack of activity.

Normally I put together a comprehensive offseason plan every year. I’ve been working on it for a couple of weeks, but kept hitting some odd stumbling blocks. The biggest is Marcus Mariota. A normal plan involved signing 1 or 2 key free agents, 2 or 3 mid-level guys and then focusing on the draft.

This year is different. If Chip Kelly really wants to move up for Mariota, the Eagles have to be aggressive in free agency. That could mean 5 or 6 signings. He can’t count on a draft pick until the 4th round. And those guys rarely step in and do much as rookies.

Then the Eagles traded LeSean McCoy. That wasn’t part of my plan and affected my thinking quite a bit. I was surprised at cutting Todd Herremans, Trent Cole and Cary Williams. I figured 2 of them would be back on reduced deals. So clearly I had no idea where Chip was headed.

Most people feel like Chip is thinking this way…load up the defense with talent, the offense can have some of its success due to the scheme. That is an over-simplification, but is probably somewhat right. Chip was willing to pay Frank Gore $5M a year. He was offering Jeremy Maclin just under $10M a year. You can’t say that he’s ignoring the offense. He just feels like that is the side of the ball where he can be more frugal because he can succeed with lesser talent. Anyone who watched the secondary for the last 2 years knows that group could not succeed with lesser talent.

First, let’s talk about the team right now. The Eagles went 10-6 each of the past 2 years. They have a talented roster and a pretty good mixture of youth and experience. Kelly is trying to do something very hard. He’s trying to make a good team great.

Can the Eagles go from a good team to a great team this offseason? Yes, but unfortunately that isn’t likely. It is more realistic to think of that as a 2-year process. And that would require that Chip Kelly and Ed Marynowitz make plenty of good moves and hit a couple of home runs.

Let’s look at the starting lineup as of right now.

QB Nick Foles
RB
WR
WR Jordan Matthews
WR Riley Cooper
TE Brent Celek / Zach Ertz
LT Jason Peters
LG Evan Mathis
C Jason Kelce
RG
RT Lane Johnson

OLB Brandon Graham
DE Fletcher Cox
NT Bennie Logan
DE Cedric Thornton
OLB Connor Barwin
ILB Mychal Kendricks
ILB Kiko Alonso
S
S Malcolm Jenkins
CB
CB Byron Maxwell

P Donnie Jones
K Cody Parkey
LS Jon Dorenbos

The Eagles thought they had RB solved with Frank Gore. That is now back to wide open, with Gore leaning toward going to the Colts. We’ll see how that plays out.

With Maclin headed to KC, there is a hole that must be filled. If the Eagles didn’t want to make a strong push for Mariota, they could focus on getting a WR early in the draft.

RG is a mystery spot. The Eagles have Allen Barbre, Matt Tobin and Andrew Gardner on the roster now. Barbre would be the most likely option at this point. Gardner and Tobin each made multiple starts at RG in 2014. They were adequate, but nothing more. Reportedly the Eagles made a run at Orlando Franklin, but he got big bucks from the Chargers. The Eagles could use a pick on a G and have him compete with the guys on the roster.

My guess is that the Eagles will land a good Safety in free agency. They did so last year with Jenkins. They made a strong run at Devin McCourty, but Emperor Belichick blackmailed him into staying in New England. The media calls it “re-signing” but we know what really happened.

More than a few people have asked about Nolan Carroll taking over at S. I don’t see that happening. I think he could make the move, but the goal is to get good Safety play. I don’t think Carroll would move there and thrive. I’d rather keep him as a backup CB and Dime LB.

The other starting corner spot will likely be another free agent signing. There have been rumors about Tramon Williams. The Eagles have Jaylen Watkins on the roster. They will almost certainly draft at least one CB. Those guys need time to develop. Signing a veteran buys the Eagles a year or two.

* * * * *

I do think Chip wants to make a run at Mariota so he needs to fill holes with FAs where possible. Who might be targeted in the next week?

RB

I’d love to see DeMarco Murray drop his price and come to Philly but that isn’t likely. I’ve been a fan of Justin Forsett’s since college (Cal), but Kelly might want a more physical runner. Several guys are coming off injury. Ryan Mathews is the most interesting. He has big time ability when he’s healthy. Stevan Ridley is coming off a torn ACL and has fumbling issues, but is very talented. Roy Helu is healthy, but isn’t a proven starter. He could be an interesting name. He is a good receiver and solid runner.

WR

Houston cut Andre Johnson and you can’t help but wonder if he’s a guy they might like on a short term deal. Johnson is a descending player to be sure, but still caught 85 passes last year. The most interesting young guy is Michael Crabtree. He is inconsistent, but part of that is on the erratic SF passing game. Crabtree could thrive in Kelly’s system. I would not break the bank for him. Also not sure if he’s Kelly’s kind of guy. Seems like a bit of a prima dona and isn’t a great blocker. I have no idea if the Eagles are the least bit interested in Percy Harvin. He’s certainly a great talent. One guy I like as a reclamation project is Hakeem Nicks. He’s got huge hands. Good RAC skills. Can be physical. Not sure why the drop-off in recent years.

Eagles could be patient and see if any other veterans are cut (Mike Wallace, Pierre Garcon). They could also try to trade for Vincent Jackson, who they looked into last October.

RG

There aren’t great options. Clint Boling of the Bengals is interesting. I was a huge fan of his coming out of Georgia. He isn’t the athlete that Kelly normally wants, but Boling looks better on tape than he does on paper. Does a solid job of blocking on the move when you watch him. Played mostly LG in Cincy. Played lots of RG in college. Also has LT and RT experience. Not worth throwing big money at, but worth talking to. Stefen Wisniewski has played mostly C in the NFL. I haven’t had a chance to study him yet. I don’t have a good feel for what’s going to happen at RG.

S

There are 2 key targets…Rahim Moore and Marcus Gilchrist. Moore is more of a centerfielder type. That’s what I think the Eagles need, but they prefer interchangeable Safeties. They like versatile guys. That would be Gilchrist. Put on the SF game and you see him deep a lot. Put in the DEN game and you see him in the slot a lot. There are other times when he plays in the box. Gilchrist isn’t a great player, but he fits what Bill Davis wants and could team well with Jenkins. Da’Norris Searcy is an interesting option as well. Ron Parker is a player being mentioned as a possible target. I have watched some tape of him, but he failed to stand out.

CB

Tramon Williams is the player who makes the most sense. He’s older, but that’s fine with the Eagles plan. They only need someone to start for a year or two. Davon House is a good young player. He’s got upside, but is also a risk since he doesn’t have a ton of starting experience. I cannot imagine the Eagles will try to bid for Darrelle Revis. He’s going to cost a ton. Mid-level guys like Alan Ball and Walter Thurmond III could be of interest.

* * * * *

My number one goal is getting a good Safety. My preference is Rahim Moore or Marcus Gilchrist.

I also want a veteran CB.

RG is a spot that can wait. The Eagles have bodies there. If the right guy is available at the right price, sign him. The only one who stands out to me is Boling.

There is no RB I covet. I love the thought of Murray, but only at the right price. I think his downhill, power style would be fun to watch in Chip’s offense.

WR is another spot where there is no clear-cut target. I do admit that it would be fun to see Andre Johnson playing for the Eagles.

As much as anything, I”m looking forward to seeing what Chip does. I haven’t had a great feel for his moves so far this offseason. He does things in his own way.

The key to the offseason is figuring out what to do at QB. Do we go for Mariota or build around Nick Foles? Is there someone else Chip secretly covets? I’ll cover QB in a separate post. For now, let’s focus on finding some good free agents.

    Why haven’t the Eagles signed anyone yet? Asleep at the wheel!

  2. 2 GEAGLE said at 3:53 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    considering we keep giving away talent, and havent been able to sign any,. would you be dying to come here?… surprised Maxwell isnt trying to back out of our contract…. before free agency NFL players probably viewed the eagles as a team that would try and get over the hump this year…. then you watch them jettison 9 players, get a #1 CB, and a backup ILB Jones, and traded for Kiko….. with uncertainty about chip wanting to go young at QB… teams prolly started off looking at us as contenders, and i doubt they have that same opinionm of us now

    Virgil Green, who some of you coveted, is re-signing with Denver.

    How far does Murray’s price have to fall? I would take him at 6.5/year

  6. 6 Greg Richards said at 3:22 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Think Cowboys would re-sign him at that price. I think he takes the money from Oakland, JAX, or TB. TB has been linked to him. If they signed him, I wonder if Doug Martin is attainable.

  7. 7 Anders said at 3:28 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I would love to pay him in the Jamaal Charles area, with some protection against him falling of the face of the earth

  8. 8 Ramiroquaaii said at 3:25 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Safety has to be the priority. Plenty of CB in FA and Draft

    Sign some S now, and draft CB and WR/RB early.
    Polk and Sproles can handle, althought i like to see Gore in green uniform. My favorite non-Eagle player.

    Trade-up for a top WR sounds good to me too, if we don’t sign anyone very good in FA.

  9. 9 Javi Echie said at 3:28 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    You’re suggesting these things without factoring the possible trade up for Mariota. Not saying it is or isn’t going to happen but if Chip is trying to fill all the major holes through FA then it makes it seem like we will try to make that trade. Which would render us with no picks to grab these players you are suggesting.

  10. 10 Ramiroquaaii said at 3:39 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Yeah, earlier, when tempering was able, I think he was going all-in for Mariota because plenty of cap space usually compensates lack of picks, but we have many holes.
    Those are very important now

  11. 11 Javi Echie said at 3:41 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I agree. I would love for him to stick with Foles and build up the roster but with such secrecy who the hell knows what Chip is thinking.

  12. 12 tomw said at 3:30 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Can you say Nate Allen?

  13. 13 Ramiroquaaii said at 3:40 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    It’s better start Nolan Carroll at CB than Allen at S.

  14. 14 holeplug said at 3:35 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    “Trade-up for a top WR sounds good to me too, if we don’t sign anyone very good in FA.”

    NOOOOO

  15. 15 Ramiroquaaii said at 3:41 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I prefer a guy like Crabtree, but we must not let Cooper be the WR1.

  16. 16 bdbd20 said at 3:28 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Nicks would be very interesting.

    I do wonder what AR would want for Knile Davis.

    Apparently the Pats are going to decline Brandon Browner’s option and the Pats are allowing him to guage other teams’ interest. Jeff McLane says he’s a “name to watch” for the Eagles. That’s vague whether he’s just speculating or has sourced info.

  32. 32 Capital#38LB said at 3:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Would love to see philly sign Moore out of Oakland. Kind of a sleeper who wouldnt cost too much. The same can be said about the Safety Moore from Denver. He’s only 25 and would be a great compliment to Jenkins. As for half-back, im not too sure. Cj Spiller would be nice, but hes gonna get paid a lot. Ryan Matthews would fit, but hes fragile. Murray for a decent price is ideal, but if hes going to take less money it will be with Dallas. Forsett is getting up their in age, and this year might just be a one year wonder. I feel like we have to at least fill a 1 guy at every hole if we are gonna sell this draft for mariota, which im fine with.

  33. 33 GEAGLE said at 3:45 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  34. 34 Capital#38LB said at 3:58 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    you are right. not sure which back slips to the 4th that kelly would like. the draft is extremely deep at rb though so im sure he’ll find someone. as of right now i trust polk as our goaline runner, sproles as the 3rd down back, and potential pick/sign to have a rb by committee.

  46. 46 GEAGLE said at 3:44 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Ryan Mathews is the softest RB in the NFL.. going into the chargers game chips first year, i said he was so soft that the would fumble…. guess what happened?

    If we wanted to trade for Marriotta, i thought we needed to make 5-6 signings….how many signings do we need make after like 3 extra unexpected cuts? i also not sure that we are done cutting people so there could be more.

    i love how in one breathe we can just casual fill whatever holes in the draft, but in the next breathe we are trading away everything for a Hawiian QB to come play in the NFC east…. are we going to have draft picks or not?
    ..
    we have a lot already invested in the OL, yet we felt the need to try and sign one of the two most expensive Guards in the market, we missed… yet we can be ok letting Tobin, Garner, and Barbre compete for the starting spot? then what the hell were we trying to spend 30mil on a guard for?

    If they dont end up with Rahim, or Gilchrist, i have no words to even describe what I would feel..

    Lets see, as of now we need to draft:
    1) starting caliber Guard
    2) WR
    3)CB
    4) OLB (we need a 4th, Braman doesnt count)
    5) might need a RB
    6) Might need a TE (lost Casey, prolly Celeks last year, we probably want to carry 4 TE’s anyway)
    7) might want to get an interior pass rusher this year, so he can be ready to replace Curry when we lose him after this year
    8) possibly a safety
    ,…
    how many draft picks are we trading away for another young QB, as if the one we have is done improving?

    Gilchrist, Rahim, Clint B, Forsett, maybe Cecil Short or Denarrious Moore,
    ..
    if we cant get one of those players just put an end to free agency. Rather fill the roster with undrafted young players then to just sign free agents just to sign them

    im surprised Maxwell isnt backing out of his deal with us considering what we lost and how little we added. fingers crossed he is already bering held prisoner at Novacare until he signs the damn contract

    RE: Foles or Mariota

    Interesting dilemma. If Chip moves on from Foles, what would the real reason be? I tried to think of some and here goes:

    – Chip thinks MM is a special player
    – Org is worried about Foles health (or lack thereof)
    – Thinks Foles 2014 was more indicative than 2013

    Another thing to think about is if Chip doesn’t get MM, does that mean Foles is constantly looking over his shoulder? Does he lose faith in the club or Chip?

    What happens if Chip goes after a completely different QB in the draft and jettisons Barkley?

    Lots of interesting story lines moving forward.

    This. 4-12 does not mean we were a stacked team before. Takes time to turn over a bad roster with only a few pieces.

    I liked the strides the D made over last year. I’d like to see that from Foles this year, but no one has any idea who our starting QB is going to be next year.

    Breer says we’re getting Rams’ 2nd round pick.

  200. 200 Anders said at 4:17 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    and now saying a swap of picks and conditional next year, so sounds like we are swapping 1st’s and pick next depending on Foles

    Alright… The basic agreement between the Rams and Eagles includes a swap of picks this year and a conditional going to Philly next next.

    I guess reporters are still nailing down details.

    Do we swap picks to move up?

  208. 208 Greg Richards said at 4:20 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    At one point, he said we get a 2nd. So maybe we give up a later round pick this year plus we get a conditional pick next year.

  209. 209 Patrick said at 4:21 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    If the conditional picks is supposed to be a 2nd rounder, I actually like the trade, assuming we dont fuck it up and actually get Marcus Mariota. Allows us to trade next years 2nd too, and still might end up with the Rams pick in that area.

  210. 210 anon said at 4:22 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Pretty great trade, Might just cost next year’s first and 2 seconds to get into striking distance

    sure…I have an arm too. And, just like Bradford I’ve never attempted an NFL pass of more than 20 yards

  214. 214 ACViking said at 4:19 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    In yesterday’s thread . . . I suggested the Eagles acquire Bradford for Foles, with a swap of 1sts.

    But I was kidding!

  215. 215 mtn_green said at 4:20 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Stop kidding. Chip is listening and following your advice.

  217. 217 xeynon said at 4:32 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    You must not have been an Eagles fan (or an NFL fan) very long.

    What Chip is doing merits plenty of skepticism. Teams don’t generally get better by stripping their roster of Pro Bowl players and replacing them with totally unknown quantities. Given historical draft and free agency outcomes it’s more likely that this turns into a total franchise-wrecking disaster and sets the team back years than that it produces a Super Bowl champion.

  218. 218 RobNE said at 4:34 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    thanks for the personal attack. I’m plenty a fan and not stupid either. I think most of his moves so far have made sense.

  220. 220 Alistair Middlemiss said at 4:19 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    At least Nick is going to a decent situation, the rams are a good team waiting to happen with some competent QB play – he can be it.

  221. 221 xeynon said at 4:22 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    If he turns into the quarterback he looked like in 2013, this will go down as a dark day in Eagles history.

  226. 226 Jernst said at 4:19 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Bradford makes $16mil this year and is the only QB in the NFL that can’t out throw Mark Sanchez. I guess Chip really hated seeing safeties play deep against the Eagles offense. With this group of WRs and Bradford playing QB we’ll essentially be running screens and dump offs with the occasional Chris Polk handoff on offense.

  227. 227 RobNE said at 4:20 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    who cares it’s MM throwing the ball for us.

    Foles can’t run nearly as fast as the 1-legged Bradford, apparently.

  253. 253 xeynon said at 4:24 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Not only must they get MM, he has to be a flat out stud. If he’s anything less than a franchise quarterback, this trade could be a disaster.

  254. 254 peteike said at 4:25 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    nah, if Foles is just average, they gambled on a franchise QB. Now they better get MM first

  255. 255 xeynon said at 4:26 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    That’s why I said “could” be a disaster. If Foles turns out to be a franchise QB and MM doesn’t, say hello to one of the worst trades in NFL history.

  261. 261 xeynon said at 4:27 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  275. 275 Greg Richards said at 4:27 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Not known. Schefter initially said pick and Foles for Bradford which is crazy. Albert Breer said Bradford and change for Foles. Next update was that pick was a 2nd. Then he said it involved a swap of picks(didn’t say what round) and Eagles getting a conditional-pick next year.

    Yes, B-I-G contract — which expires after 2015.

    Bradford, even with all his problems, is still better than Geno and Metz.

    Of course, he can’t stay healthy.

  321. 321 RobNE said at 4:35 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    if no dead money why did we take him. Rams could cut him and just trade for Foles.

  322. 322 b3nz0z said at 4:36 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    what if he’s worth a sixth to someone?

  323. 323 D3FB said at 4:36 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    We percieve him as asset either as backup with reworked $ or in a trade on.

  324. 324 RobNE said at 4:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I don’t care if we get their # 10 pick. But I don’t know and everyone just keeps posting what they think.

  325. 325 Jarock said at 4:39 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    True and we can afford him at the moment. If he could stay healthy, he’d be better than Sanchez.

  326. 326 RobNE said at 4:44 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    wait, no dead money but is there guaranteed money? cap v. cash?

  327. 327 D3FB said at 4:56 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I think salary guarantees if he makes opening day roster.

  328. 328 RobNE said at 4:57 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    there are conflicting posts above how we provided some benefit to the Rams for taking Bradford. I am very confused.

  329. 329 D3FB said at 5:14 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Unless there is some crazy condition in his contract (not totally out of the realm of possibilities he was last of the monster 1st overalls) we aren’t. Conflicting reports likely due to people not understanding how NFL cap works and repeating bad info.

    so you admit he got you two ten win seasons in a row. maybe he’s not an idiot?

  335. 335 BC1968 said at 4:36 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Never ever said he was an idiot, I’m just wondering what the hell is happening. I think it’s crazy, not saying he’s not going to end up looking like a genius here.

  336. 336 b3nz0z said at 4:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    i should have said crazy, not idiot. i’m with you in being like wtf, but i have to assume he isn’t doing all these things randomly. i mean the dude plans eveything

  337. 337 xeynon said at 4:39 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Maybe he’s a good coach and can win with someone else’s roster, but a crappy GM.

    Sorry, but the talent differential between Foles-McCoy-Maclin-Jackson and Mariota-Chris Polk-Riley Cooper-Jordan Matthews is enormous. He’s taken an offense that was loaded with Pro Bowl talent (albeit still unproven in Foles’ case) and decimated it. Unless he replaces it with better talent, it is completely legitimate to criticize what he’s doing.

  338. 338 b3nz0z said at 4:42 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    except that FA just started, and there’s a draft, and we had a lot of money tied up in that loaded offense. so it’s really not legit to assume we know where this is headed. you are criticizing something you’ve only seen a fraction of.

  339. 339 xeynon said at 4:47 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Granted. However, he appears to be taking enormous risks right now. What if another team decides it wants Mariota and offers a better package for him? Disaster. What happens if we get Mariota but he turns out to be just a nice college system QB who doesn’t have the ability to win at the NFL level? Disaster. What happens if the free agents he signs to replace the good players he dumped aren’t as good, or the draft picks he makes are busts? Disaster.

    Chip has done nothing – NOTHING – to give me faith in his abilities as a talent evaluator. This is a guy who wanted to draft Taylor frickin’ Hart in the 3rd round last year. I don’t see why he deserves the benefit of the doubt.

  340. 340 lewis don said at 4:33 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Apparently we get Bradford and 10th pick, along with a second round pick. As everyone has been saying, I am now officially thinking we are going after mariota.

    Re: Why did Kelly Acquire Bradford?

    Ray Diddy says Rams were going to release SB.

    But Kelly’s taken control of his contract.

    And, despite injuries, SB has some value.

    Yes, SB’s contract (in last year) is huge. But the kid remains highly talented.

    Better than Geno. Better than Metz

  350. 350 BC1968 said at 4:34 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Not sure if it was a positive they were going to release him, but Diddy said they were thinking about it. it’s a lot of money to unload, like the money they should unload to get rid of Riley IMO

  351. 351 xeynon said at 4:36 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    They had better be getting rid of him. Bradford has been in the NFL for four years and his career passer rating is lower than Foles’ was last season. He’s also injury prone. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to call him a bust at this point.

  352. 352 BC1968 said at 4:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    He’s the Jim McMahon of injuries

  353. 353 xeynon said at 4:33 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Remember when Chip said he wasn’t a system coach and adapted his scheme to the roster he had rather than the other way around?

    Yeah, he lied.

    It’s more likely that he’s the next June Jones than that he’s the next Belichick.

  357. 357 kevinlied said at 4:36 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    If you (universal, not you in particular) like Bradford better than Foles, it’s because you don’t think much of Foles. Not that it matters from an Eagles perspective. There is no way he’s the starting QB here next year. Makes no sense.

  358. 358 phillychuck said at 4:34 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  385. 385 Greg Richards said at 4:39 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Initially said pick going to Eagles was 2nd but then updated said trade involved swap of picks and a conditional 2016 pick. That 2016 pick could most likely be a 2nd or maybe a 2nd is involved in the swap of picks next year.

    Taking Bradford and more importantly his salary off of the Rams books when they were considering cutting him anyways, and would definitely cut him if they traded for Foles, is more us giving them something than them giving us something. Rams are thrilled to be able to move on from Bradford without the cap hit. We have the space to accomodate his $12mil hit (4mil will still be taken by Rams because it was from signing bonus). We now can either eat his $12mil cap hit or trade him to a team that might want him.

  443. 443 GermanEagle said at 4:42 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I honestly think the real reason why Chip got rid of Foles were his Uggs.

    Desean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Shady McCoy, now Nick Foles. That is a lot of talent to lose. Here’s to hoping it works out. I am not comfortable with having Sam Bradford on this team.

  450. 450 b3nz0z said at 4:43 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    he was complaining about you earlier

  451. 451 James said at 4:44 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Bradford cant possibly have value does he? That was the Rams offloading his salary. So it would seem that we would have to get their 10th pick

  452. 452 lewis don said at 4:45 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    You have to believe he does. From a PR perspective, bradfords reputation is bad, but you have to think coaches have a idea where he is injury wise and a different thought of his potential.

  453. 453 James said at 4:47 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    We get an injury prone, salary polluting QB and they get a young budding Qb who is cost controlled. I would have to think we get up to 10 otherwise I’ll just be sad

  454. 454 P_P_K said at 4:48 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Cause to be very, very sad.

  455. 455 lewis don said at 4:51 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    All signs are pointing to this being something further. I wouldn’t bet that we are expecting to put Sam on the field in any capacity.

  456. 456 Greg Richards said at 4:44 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Theoretically the Eagles could sign Bradford to an extension and give him a roster bonus instead of a signing bonus. Then they could trade him and eat the cap hit this year. Basically, you’re saying we’ll pay him the money and take the cap hit and as a result we want better return in a trade.

  457. 457 HawaiianEagle said at 4:45 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Hmmm…

  458. 458 Jarock said at 4:45 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Interesting speculation. Thanks again for all the updates.

  459. 459 Eric Carranza said at 4:46 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    They could also cut him with no cap casualty

  460. 460 Greg Richards said at 4:47 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Another team, yes. We’d basically be trading Bradford and cap space. NBA style trade.

  461. 461 GEAGLE said at 4:47 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    highly doubt that… he will be waived at some point I assume

  462. 462 cliff-U of ACL @ Oregon said at 4:51 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    guess seding Bradford is just an afterthought. STL is going with foles, so put him in the trade or cut him, 6 one way, half a dozen another to STL. maybe chip wanted Sam as a backup in case eags dont get MM in draft.

  463. 463 anon said at 4:53 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    he’s got to agree to the restructure

    Could be worse.

  467. 467 GEAGLE said at 4:46 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    No one will trade for Bradfords contract. get real. everyone knows we dont want him and they just have to wait and we will release him..

    this is a sam hinkie trade, dump Foles for picks… Bradford will be waived

  468. 468 RobNE said at 4:46 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    maybe the trade was already in place.

  469. 469 P_P_K said at 4:47 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    As long as we get MM or Hundley. Otherwise Sam and Sanchez compete for strating qb.

  470. 470 ACViking said at 5:06 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    This is what I don’t understand.

    Rams could have cut Bradford at 4:00.01 p.m., today, and immediately added $12M in cap space.

    Zero dead money.

    _____________

    Only reasons Eagles take Bradford?

    He’s insurance in case deals fall through?

    He’s Kelly’s guy for the future (despite 9.25″ hands)?

    Or he’s being flipped to someone with lots of cap room . . .

    Jets, Titans, Bucs all in Top 6.

    Or — since we’re dealing in the fantastic today — the Eagles (i) have a new 3-year contract ready to go in which Bradford’s cap number is cut in half, making him now a much more attractive asset, (ii) Bradford’s traded to the Bucs as part of deal for No. 1, and (iii) the Eagles happily eat $6 million in cap dollars to make this happen.

    Otherwise . . . again, why is Bradford here.

  472. 472 Insomniac said at 4:46 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  475. 475 Insomniac said at 4:52 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Because MM isn’t the end all or be all for this team. It might be for CHIP though.

  476. 476 P_P_K said at 4:54 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    This is a good point because a young qb without a supporting cast will have a hard time developing in the NFL.

  477. 477 Insomniac said at 4:59 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    We’re not done with FA yet so everything could change. We could get a premier WR or OL if we don’t get help from FA but this is Chip we’re talking about so who knows?

  478. 478 GEAGLE said at 4:54 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    awesome, dream come true… always wanted a Hawiian QB to help us win those NFC east snow bowls in December

  482. 482 xeynon said at 5:44 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    If they did this to trade up for Mariota, I think it’s a risky move. If they did it to trade up for Waynes or Dupree, and plan to draft Hundley in the second round, it’s a flat out awful move. Hundley is not that great a prospect.

  487. 487 Greg Richards said at 4:47 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    can someone explain how/if we helped the Rams by taking Bradford? did we save them cash and/or cap room?

  495. 495 Anders said at 4:49 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    They saves 12 mill in cap room and potentially get their QB.

  496. 496 RobNE said at 4:49 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    thanks I didn’t think NFL worked NBA style. Is that b/c his contract for 2015 is guaranteed?

  497. 497 Greg Richards said at 4:50 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    No, doing a trade versus a release doesn’t matter. The cap hit is the same unless the release is designated a post-June 1st cut. In that case, a chunk of the hit goes against the next year’s cap but you don’t get the actual cap savings until June 1st. If we were just interested in the picks, we wouldn’t have accepted Bradford in the trade. We either want him for ourselves or for a trade asset.

  498. 498 anon said at 4:52 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    so it doesn’t save STL money?

  499. 499 bill said at 4:55 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    That’s my understanding of the NFL CBA workings, but I’m no expert. I’m waiting to see one of them explain it.

  500. 500 KAJomo said at 4:57 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    It does save them money, but no kore than if they cut Sam outright. Chip too Bradford for a reason. Deal makes sense for Rams. Nobody knows what crazyness is oing on inChip’s mind

  501. 501 RobNE said at 4:54 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    so are you or Anders correct? or we just took him to kick the tires b/c Rams were cutting him.

  502. 502 cliff-U of ACL @ Oregon said at 4:58 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    GR is right

  503. 503 Jernst said at 4:56 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    saved them $12mil in cap space

  504. 504 Jernst said at 4:57 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Taking Bradford and more importantly his salary off of the Rams books when they were considering cutting him anyways, and would definitely cut him if they traded for Foles, is more us giving them something than them giving us something. Rams are thrilled to be able to move on from Bradford without the cap hit. We have the space to accomodate his $12mil hit (4mil will still be taken by Rams because it was from signing bonus). We now can either eat his $12mil cap hit or trade him to a team that might want him.

  505. 505 tomw said at 4:48 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    The Rams have become a much better team

  506. 506 James said at 4:49 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  507. 507 tomw said at 4:51 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I’m betting they are pretty happy.

  508. 508 peteike said at 4:58 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    mostly because the nightmare of Sam Bradford is finally over

  509. 509 tomw said at 4:59 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    And it frees up some money.

  510. 510 lewis don said at 4:55 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Sort of. They need to capitalize in the draft at the CB and receiver position right?

  511. 511 tomw said at 4:57 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    We’re all set at those two positions right?

  512. 512 lewis don said at 5:04 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Im confused, just to be clear, im not a rams fan.
    if you are referring to the eagles, I am not one to look at Riley cooper as a “sorry player” as most put it or to Jordan Matthews as average.
    I look at production and the eye test. People laughed when I said Jordan Matthews would get over 700 yards last year. (at least I think I said 700).
    I hitch hiked to Lincoln financial field to watch them practice last year from Maryland.
    To me, I like our wideouts. Do we sign a free agent? it would help. Do we draft someone? certainly.
    But Our priority, is QB and FS now. CB is right after, and OL and LB, then RB, and WR.
    We will address all of these positions. Some with stronger moves. I think the stronger moves goes to the higher priority.
    FS is the problem. I hear the draft is weak at Safety and the Free agent market is also weak. That’s our issue at the moment. Mccourty would have bought us time.
    I think we try to convert someone in the offseason. I really think the eagles want to interchange their corners. where they can all play multiple positions. I wont be surprised if jaylen gets some play at safety.
    That acrobatic interception he made tells me everything I need to know. he has potential. but of course, people don’t buy potential. they look at numbers. but what comes first? potential or numbers? you gotta see the potential first.

  527. 527 lewis don said at 4:54 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Many teams have given up “top players” this offseason. The thing I try to remember, is that I am not a coach or football expert. I watch tape and read, but the coaches and management know more than we do.
    It was apparent when Andy Reid lost his mind here. We will know when this thing is failing. Now is not the time.

    I said this yesterday but we shouldn’t absorb Bradford’s contract if the Rams did include him in a deal for Foles. Well shit that effectively cut our 30m cap space to like 14m but it’ll be a 3.5m dead money hit if we cut him.

  578. 578 anon said at 4:57 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    do we automatically eat that 14? of if we move SB or cut him do we get $$ back?

  579. 579 Jernst said at 5:07 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    its $12mil and if hes cut we eat it. If he’s traded the recieving team takes it on

  580. 580 Anders said at 4:58 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    We can cut Bradford for 0 cap dead money, Rams eats the 3.5

  581. 581 RobNE said at 5:00 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    what is “dead money” as opposed to counting against the cap?
    Couldn’t the Rams just cut him?

  582. 582 sonofdman said at 5:01 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Dead money counts against the cap even if he is cut (or traded).

  583. 583 cliff-U of ACL @ Oregon said at 5:03 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    yes, guess he’s just a throw in. stl didnt need him around with foles as obvious #1 now. maybe eags gave conseridations on the 2nd, to get rights to bradford. just in case it doesnt work with them drafting MM.

  584. 584 RobNE said at 5:04 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  607. 607 unhinged said at 5:09 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Bradford has been so feeble, it’s hard to see who would want him. Of course there is the possibility that Chip found the one person who likes Bradford, and that is why he made the deal.

  608. 608 peteike said at 5:09 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Great!
    Thx

  619. 619 KAJomo said at 5:04 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    The solve any confusion:

    When a team cuts a player any of their gaurenteed money (signing bonus) is prorated to the crrent cap year. Team typically only cut players when the current year base salary is greater than the prorated guarenteed money. This is why we wont cut Cooper right now.

    In the event of a trade all of this holds true. The team still is on the hook for the signing bonus money. However in the event of a trade the team recieving the player takes on all non-guarenteed money (base, roster bonus, work out bonus etc.). So a player like DeMeco can be cut with no penalty because the Texans paid all his signing bonus upon trading.

    So…we are taking on all of Bradford’s base salary. We can cut him or trade him at any time and it will cost us nothing. We in no way helped the Rams financially. They could hav cut Bradford and been in the exact same financial situation.

  635. 635 ACViking said at 5:14 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    History of draft trades since 1967:

    8 deals with a team moving from 9-13 to 1-3.

    Cost: ranges from, swap of 1sts, plus two firsts to just a 3rd.

    Typical cost: 2nd and 3rd, plus swap.

    VERY AFFORDABLE if you use 1 pick from 2016.

  636. 636 RobNE said at 5:15 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  637. 637 ACViking said at 5:19 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Has to be.

    If history teaches us anything, it’s that the move will cost a 2nd and Kendricks.

    Kelly holds onto to Bradford to try to move him at some point for a future pick.

  638. 638 RobNE said at 5:22 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    who knows now up top they are saying may not include # 10. How can that be?

    and please not Kendricks. Give the pick(s) instead.

  639. 639 unhinged said at 5:39 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Thanks for the history.

  640. 640 ChaosOnion said at 5:27 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Look up the Pro Football Reference draft pick trade value chart. It was devised by Jimmy Johnson to assign trade value to draft picks and has been adopted league wide. (I am sure there are tweaks here and there.)

    #10 = 1300 points
    #20 = 850 points

    2nd rounder is at least 270 points, at most ~500 points.

    Eagles net [720,950] points in trade value. That is a whole first round pick in value, #22-#27.

  641. 641 unhinged said at 5:38 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    So your point is that a trade up from 10 is a lot less costly, right? But I don’t see who our trading partner is. If it isn’t Tampa or Tennessee, can there be a safe trade up?

  642. 642 ChaosOnion said at 6:05 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    It could be moot at this point if the 1st rounders were not swapped, but if they were, TEN has been rumored as a partner. Also, NYJ were rumored to be more interested in Bradford than Foles.

  643. 643 Greg Richards said at 5:05 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  835. 835 Sean Stott said at 5:38 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    If that conditional 2016 pick is most likely a 1st, I’d take it.

    I would think it would have to be the Eagles would be taking a Net $11.5 cap hit (Bardford 13 – Foles 1.5) and a swap of 2nds with a conditional 2/3 next yr doesn’t get that done

  838. 838 scratcherk said at 5:31 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Just gotta wait. I’m trying not to freak out either. Taking on less talent, more injury and a HUGE contract while giving up a POTENTIAL franchise QB doesnt get you a return…? Kelly can’t be that stupid. I know there is the Shurmur connection, but geez

    Guy reporting on winners and losers so far says this:
    Winner: Sam Bradford:
    He’s going from Brian Schottenheimer to Chip Kelly. Bradford has a
    unique chance to salvage his career for an offense that can’t help but
    put up big numbers.

    Losers

    Mark Sanchez: Remember when he looked like a decent bet to start Week 1 for Philadelphia? That was a great day.

    Another loser:
    Marcus Mariota: Chip Kelly could still make a play for his former pupil, but it’s looking a lot less likely now. Landing in Philadelphia would have been the least bumpy transition to the NFL for Mariota.

  934. 934 deshawnbentley said at 5:46 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    1300 value of 10th overall

    850 value of 20th overall

    For a net value of +450 (in draft assets)

    450 is the same value as 45th overall in the draft

    So If the trade is in fact Bradford+Conditional 2016 1st? for Foles and a swap of 2nds, I think this adds up better in the Eagles favor than the originally reported swap.

    That would give the Eagles

    Pick 20 (850)

    Conditional 2016 1st: Many regard this the same as a 2nd since it is a future pick. Personally I think it holds more value than a typical 2nd round pick so let’s just say 500 points (Pick 40). A swap of 2nds would also add 100 points.

    So option A (Swap of 1sts) we’d have: 1300

    Option B (Conditional/swap 2nds): 1450

    If we dont get a Rams 1st in any way this trade was garbage

  935. 935 Greg Richards said at 5:47 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    What if that conditional pick is most likely a 1st in 2016?

  936. 936 GermanEagle said at 5:48 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I was thinking the same.

  937. 937 deshawnbentley said at 5:50 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Yeah, that’s what I interpreted it would be in this quick analysis.
    We’d trade the conditional pick, along with our first to Tennessee. (among other picks). I placed a 500 point value on the 2016 conditional 1st which would equate to pick 40 this year

    How can you not be excited about giving up picks to acquire a QB who’s in the last year of his rookie contract at $12m — who hasn’t thrown a pass since Week 7 of the 2013 season — and whom the HC thinks may not beat out Mark Sanchez?!?!?!

    . if the day chip was hired we were told he is going to blow up the offense, we will get rid of shady,Maclin, Desean, Foles it would have raised some eyebrows but atleast we would think we would be getting a bunch of valuable draft picks to help us rebuild…….

    Recap:

    Defense:
    lost: Cole, Cary,Bradley, Nate, Casey Mathews, Trent Cole

    Offense:

    I like how you don’t take draft picks (whatever they end up being) into account in the Foles/Bradford trade.

    It is almost as bad as that one time the Cowboys got noone back in a trade for Hershel Walker (well, except draft picks, but they don’t count).

    GR:

    That’s one operating premise.

    But how much, in draft picks, is a guy who’s started only 49 of 80 games — and none in 1.6 seasons — on a 1-year $12M contract worth in a trade?

    I’m all for packaging Bradford with a 2nd in 2016 and a 3rd in 2017 to Tampa Bay for a swap of 1sts.

    But I cannot believe Tampa’s that crazy. Or TN.

    Deal would still have to include a blue-chip Eagle player. And there’s only 3.

    Schefter said compensation picks will be based on Bradford’s playing time. Tgat doesnt sound like he gecomes trade bait. Please convince me I’m wrong

  1008. 1008 Nick C said at 6:04 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    could be playing time with another team as well…

  1009. 1009 sonofdman said at 6:04 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Sure it does. If another team views Bradford as a possible starter, trade them Bradford and the conditional picks along with our number one and some other picks to move up and get Mariota.

  1010. 1010 sonofdman said at 6:05 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I mixed that up a little bit, but the main point remains, Bradford could play for someone else.

  1011. 1011 Greg Richards said at 6:04 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Be funny if we say yeah we’ll give you this pick if Bradford starts this many games “for us” and then we trade him to another team.

  1012. 1012 ACViking said at 6:06 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    What does this mean, exactly?

    Does Kelly value Bradford — who’s started 49 out of 80 possible games — so much that he’s willing to send picks to the Rams?

    For a guy on a 1-year $12m deal?

    Need some help understanding this deal.

    Seriously . . . .

  1013. 1013 sonofdman said at 6:09 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    It could be that picks coming our way are conditional. For example, the Rams give us a lesser pick if Bradford plays a lot and give us a better pick if he is injured and does not play.

  1014. 1014 bwin29 said at 6:04 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Schefter just said on Sportscenter two seconds ago that the conditions on the pick have to do with Bradford’s playing time. Does that mean Eagles are planning on keeping Bradford??? Or are the Bucs/Titans interested in Bradford and they are dictating the terms of the conditional pick to the Eagles????

  1015. 1015 Greg Richards said at 6:06 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Like the Stevie Johnson/Bryce Brown trade.

  1016. 1016 iceberg584 said at 6:06 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Exactly.

  1017. 1017 bwin29 said at 6:06 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I understand that. The reason I am confused is because this would imply the Eagles are planning on keeping Bradford.

  1018. 1018 bwin29 said at 6:07 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Or do I have this mixed up?

  1019. 1019 kevinlied said at 6:18 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I’d presume the conditional pick would get better the less he played, because if he’s adding a lot of value less value would need to transfer in the form of the pick. Is that wrong?

  1020. 1020 GEAGLE said at 7:11 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Yes they are dead serious about keeping him. Why?? No clue

  1021. 1021 Dominik said at 6:06 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Yes. But the swap is still important. Because TB and TEN won’t want to slip that far, probably.

  1022. 1022 GEAGLE said at 7:10 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Yes. He is our qb. Time to accept it… Sorry

    I think, talent-wise, he’s very promising.

    But he’s missed nearly half the games he could have started over a 5-year period.

    His numbers are pedestrian.

    He takes sacks — like Foles did in 2013, when he was great.

    And he’s on a 1-year deal at $12 million.

    Again its running style. Chip wants to run a bunch of plays. That means no going backwards. Muray woud keep us “on schedule”. Also think losing maclin was not expected. Now we have more offensive holes than we thought we would. Murray is better than amy WR options

  1151. 1151 Greg Richards said at 6:31 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  1152. 1152 SteveH said at 6:33 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I don’t think Shady’s running style fit our blocking scheme. Seemed like Chip was pretty fed up at times at Shady seeking the big play. Honestly I thought Shady would be more impactful on screens for us but we hardly used those this past year (maybe because of OL continuity issues).

    I personally prefer a bruiser to a scatback for our attacking. A one cut and go guy with some power and some speed is perfect. Doesn’t need to be a burner, doesn’t have to be Jerome Bettis, just some of each. As long as he can catch screen passes his hands are good enough.

  1153. 1153 Insomniac said at 6:32 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Because Murray runs hard and goes north?? He’s really used though so I’m confused too,

  1154. 1154 ACViking said at 6:33 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Unless Demarco Murray has the kind of genes that Emmitt Smith had, his production will decline next year. Probably, quite a bit. Injury likely, too.

    But he’ll bounce back in 2016. Just nothing close to this season’s production.

    That’s what the history of RBs with 350+ carries in a season shows.

    What’s crazy about the Sam Bradford for Foles trade? It was basically dead
    twice over the last two weeks. Until right at the deadline.

    You’re correct there isn’t an actual deadline but it seems like the start of FA was an artificial self-imposed deadline.

  1184. 1184 sonofdman said at 6:34 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    What deadline?

  1185. 1185 James said at 6:35 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    deadline to legal tampering?

  1186. 1186 sonofdman said at 6:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Yeah, it is weird to keep referring to it as a deadline. It’s not like if the trade didn’t go through by 4:00 pm today they could no longer do it.

  1187. 1187 James said at 6:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    yea poor choice of the word deadline

  1188. 1188 sonofdman said at 6:40 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    He keeps on using that word. I do not think it means what he thinks it means.

  1201. 1201 Greg Richards said at 6:38 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Having a trade ready right at the beginning of FA indicates a ple-planned process, not winging it.

  1202. 1202 SteveH said at 6:39 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I meant FA as a whole, rather than this particular trade, which as someone else posted earlier (rappaport reporting) was dead in the water twice before getting resurrected. Did we resurrect the deal because things were not going our way so far?

  1203. 1203 RobNE said at 6:40 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Sounds like it’s injury protection. Need to find out how many games he’d have to miss to get pick back.

    Okay . . . so the Rams, per Ray Diddy, were going to release Bradford.

    Obviously not.

    Otherwise, why would Chip Kelly ship off Foles, a 4th, and next year’s 2nd.

    Clearly, Kelly knew more than Ray Diddy.

    Eagles are assuming Bradford’s contract as is. At least for now. Has 1yr left
    and made no approaches on a new contract as part of this trade

    I’d think if you want to keep him, you do an extension before making the trade.

    There was a report a while back that some of the teams at the top of the draft prefer Bradford over Winston/Mariota. Let’s hope that’s the case and Bradford is just a trade chip.

  1362. 1362 jpate said at 7:02 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  1372. 1372 Dominik said at 7:10 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Maybe (MAYBE, ALL HOPE WE HAVE) is that price is so absurd because we were in a bidding war. But we had Foles, who the Rams liked.

  1373. 1373 peteike said at 7:13 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    ok, so trying to wrap my head around this. Foles is wanted but were also taking on his contract for them (which I thought would net us more, also if they covet Foles that much). That in turn lets some other team get him from us with picks. I guess but seems like a reach, or hope like you said. Only way that kind of works if the Rams really still liked Bradford and were making it too expensive to get him. Would be a big circle j if it falls that way

    maybe Chip could just not get up to top 2. He had already moved on from Foles and the Rams was the best offer he could get. So he just took the best he could get. Like how could get nothing for Desean so just had to cut him. Rather than go another year with Foles only to lose him in free agency, trade him now.

    I really hope all we lose on this QB swap is the 4th/5th round pick swap and they got Bradford because TB/TEN like him more than Foles

  1414. 1414 ACViking said at 7:11 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Yes . . . if Bradford is valued as the equivalent of a 2nd Rd pick.

  1415. 1415 peteike said at 7:15 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    where is all this sudden value for Bradford though. Unless rams made it hard for them to deal him. Does the contract come into play maybe. We rework his deal prior to trade?

    I don’t know if Bradford has that value to TB and TN.

    Nightmare scenario:

    We tried to trade up with Tampa for a ton of picks and Tampa’s GM tells Chip that they will only make the trade if we can get Bradford and include him. Chip makes a terrible deal for Bradford, and then Tampa’s GM (while trying to hold in his laughter) says he changed his mind and doesn’t want Bradford any more.

You approach the turnstiles and know that when you get there, you have to give the man two dollars or he won’t let you inside. But when you get there, everything goes wrong.

    I cannot believe how utterly stupid this trade was.

    Everything positive went to Rams. They got a better QB. Way smaller cap hit. Better draft picks.

    WTF? This shit is seriously pissing me off. There’s no possible explanation for this. Bradford is a SCRUB, nobody wants him.

  1484. 1484 Niels said at 7:20 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Two options 1) Eagles went for Bradford as fallback option and got fleeced 2) This is part of bigger picture trade. Here is my concern with 2); so far birds have made deals that blew up before they got realized, suggesting a lack of deal-making savvy.

  1485. 1485 anon said at 7:22 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  1486. 1486 James said at 7:23 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Why would we even put in all the conditions for him starting? Clearly they like him.

  1487. 1487 Jernst said at 7:24 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    If the conditions say he has to start for the eagles or we get our pick back, and we trade him to someone else before the season he doesn’t start any games for us and we get the pick back next year…I dunno I’m grasping at straws here man

  1488. 1488 James said at 7:26 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    It would have to apply to the Eagles no? I thought once a trade happens you need to sign a new contract terms

  1489. 1489 Jernst said at 7:34 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    You don’t need to sign a new contract Bradford could play out his one year at 12mil for us. When you trade for the player you get his contract too. You can resign them and usually teams do, but you don’t have to.

    What I’m talking about, in my initial reply to you, is the trade conditions with the rams. It’s stated that we traded a conditional 2nd round pick next year. If Bradford starts more than 50% of the snaps we send a 2nd to the Rams next year. If less than 50% it becomes a 3rd. If he gets injured it becomes a 4th we send them. If he doesn’t start at all we send them nothing next year. (or something along those lines…I’m not sure what the exact deal was at this time…everything is a blur). So what I’m saying is if the wording of that condition is that, “if he doesn’t start a single game for the EAGLES…”, then it might support the notion that we plan on trading him. If we trade him, he never starts a game for the Eagles and we don’t owe the rams a pick next year at all. Just a thought…

    Theory: Eagles intentionally tanking season. Positioning themselves for QB in 2016 draft.

    If there’s any good news it’s that GEAGLE is guaranteeing that Sam’s going to be our QB. Since everyone knows his guarantees always work out, we should be happy with our QB next season.

    I still like chip. Foles is with fans that deserve him and I’m getting the defense I wanted. Really don’t care for MM anyway. Rather have a QBS with NO ACL then. Running QB lol.

    Chips still ok in my book but his fans are out of control, lol swear they sound like Cult members to me

  1555. 1555 James said at 7:33 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    In which the safeties we wanted after McCourty are still on the market. I don’t see a massive hole at CB. Carroll was a starter in MIA and I think can be a solid 2. OLB is solved. We are stacked at ILB with possibly the best ILB tandem in league if healthy. You have one hole and that’s at the safety position. Will get addressed seeing how hard they went at McCourty. I am very pleased with the defense, not so much offense.

  1561. 1561 botto said at 7:36 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  1562. 1562 Michael Winter Cho said at 7:40 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Is this a good chance to get this off my chest–the Rams have sucked for so long, had so many high draft picks, and got so many from the Redskins, even got a big name coach. It’s probably about time they start winning some games.

  1563. 1563 GEAGLE said at 7:42 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    They don’t suck. They are like a QB and WR away

  1564. 1564 GEAGLE said at 7:41 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Better then our trash who crapped on a quality developing QB for 3 years. Hope we trade Marcus smith too and watch him grow into a beast. Trashy fanbase needs to learn the hard way how to properly judge and support young talent. Kid lost 4 games and front running fools ripped him everytime.. I wanted him in buffalo or the jets, but I’m good with the Rams

  1565. 1565 botto said at 7:45 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    wait and see if they still like foles after a few losses. you never know, people always want immediate gratification

  1569. 1569 mksp said at 7:33 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    At a minimum, most of you guys are massively overrating Nick Foles.

    But instead of trying to come to terms with your own poor evaluation of him, you’re taking it out on Chip.

    Let the process play out.

  1570. 1570 Greg Richards said at 7:34 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Perhaps, but that doesn’t make trading for a QB that has played 7 games the past 2 seasons a good idea. I don’t know if I’d give up just a 2016 2nd for him. Only way this makes sense is if TB/TEN think much more highly of Bradford than I(or sane people) do.

  1571. 1571 myartz04 said at 7:34 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Foles has been referred to as a “franchise qb” on here several times. Since when?

  1572. 1572 GEAGLE said at 9:42 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Everytime I ever talked about him

  1573. 1573 James said at 7:34 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Nick Foles value is greater than Bradford’s like by a longshot and even Rams fans will tell you that.

  1574. 1574 ICDogg said at 7:34 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Foles had value. Bradford should have had value just to unload him. Instead the trade went the other way.

  1575. 1575 peteike said at 7:36 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    this

  1576. 1576 botto said at 7:35 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    true.
    chip is the coach that knows these guys for 2 years. if the coach wants a different qb why do the fans think he is wrong all the sudden?
    hey you can’t ever please everybody

  1577. 1577 ICDogg said at 7:36 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    If they would have traded Foles for a 2nd round pick – even a 3rd round pick – it would have been a better deal. This trade is bullshit.

  1578. 1578 Tumtum said at 7:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Nick Foles has value. Bradford has none. Quite literally no value. The Eagles traded Nick Foles and #20 to move up to #10.

    Forget about what you or I think about Foles. We both agree he has value. If you think Bradford has value you are cray

  1579. 1579 wee2424 said at 7:39 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    The Eagles did not swap picks. We are getting a 2nd rounder this year, and giving one next year. Plus like a 4th and 6th involved.

  1580. 1580 KAJomo said at 7:40 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    We are not getting a second this year.

  1581. 1581 wee2424 said at 7:50 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    According to Bleacher report we are. Checked again. Bleacher Report has corrected their error. Now this makes no sense to me.

    Nope

  1583. 1583 wee2424 said at 9:44 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  1584. 1584 cliff-U of ACL @ Oregon said at 7:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    funny thing is, if a month ago you proposed a trade, Foles for Rams 2nd and 5th, i’d of probably said, sure but hopefully little more. but tossing Bradford into mix just pisses me off.
    .
    hopefully Kelly has another trade. dont see many NBA 3way deals but lt’s hope

  1585. 1585 xeynon said at 7:42 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    You’re flat out wrong.

    I’m not saying Foles is going to be a franchise quarterback. He may or may not.

    But he is younger, cheaper, and has had a statistically better career than Sam Bradford, who in addition to being mediocre for five NFL seasons, is extremely injury prone. These are not opinions. They are facts.

    This is an awful, awful trade, in isolation or as part of a process. There is no excusing it.

  1586. 1586 jaws80 said at 7:34 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I just now want Chip to put me out of my misery and hold a press conference and say he is not going after Mariotta and he has loved Bradford from afar since he was in college. If he has any decency he will tell us there are no more moves if he loves Bradford.
    I just know myself, and i root for the Eagles, so come the first game of the season i will be all Bradforded up, be able to tell you his college stats, seen his highlights and convinced myself he is best for Chips’ syste…. oh, hell, i have no clue….

  1587. 1587 Ark87 said at 7:35 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    So as GM can Chip Kelly trade himself to the Rams? that’s the only way any of this makes sense.

  1588. 1588 meteorologist said at 7:36 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I honestly don’t understand why people are upset! Obviously the trade doesn’t make sense in isolation. Clearly more moves are coming. If Bradford is a piece to move up for Mariota doesn’t that make it better?

  1589. 1589 peteike said at 7:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    were all praying thats the case, its just kind of hard to believe thats possible value wise.

  1590. 1590 jpate said at 7:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  1591. 1591 Jernst said at 7:38 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  1592. 1592 Jarock said at 7:38 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Even if he is, we still got raped in this trade. Both QB’s in last year of deal. One is minimum wage the other is making tons. Both are injury prone but have shown promise. Which should be more valuable as a trade chip? Ask that in isolation of names and it’s obvious to everyone but Kelly.

  1593. 1593 meteorologist said at 7:44 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Read somewhere on twitter that teams in top 5 may prefer to take bradford and still have a pick in 1st round than pick a QB. I’m just sayin this isn’t over yet

  1598. 1598 anon said at 7:37 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    From the Rams website “If Bradford starts 8 games or more, Rams get Eagles 2016 2nd rounder. If
    he starts less, Philly gets Rams’ 4th round. If he gets re-injured,
    Eagles get Rams’ 3rd round pick. In other words, Rams are pretty much
    guaranteed to give up a 2016 NFL Draft pick.”

  1599. 1599 jpate said at 7:38 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    So now we are here hoping Sanchez wins the starting job to protect our 2nd round pick. Awesome

  1600. 1600 meteorologist said at 7:39 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    We gave up the 2nd rounder regardless

  1601. 1601 Greg Richards said at 7:42 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Despite being still in disbelief, I am trying to stay positive.
    So, basically, the Eagles have more than 6 weeks to continue working on another trade.
    Free Agency is not even 4 hours old. Lots of quality Free Agents left.
    Let’s go Eagles!

  1606. 1606 cliff-U of ACL @ Oregon said at 7:43 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Sam just ate about 2/5th of remaining cap.

  1607. 1607 GermanEagle said at 7:44 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    If he stays. Also the guaranteed money of his remaining contract stays with the Rams. So basically the Eagles ‘only’ have to eat his base salary. IF he stays…

  1608. 1608 Tumtum said at 7:47 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Sam Bradford has no value. Nay, he has negative value.

  1609. 1609 cliff-U of ACL @ Oregon said at 7:55 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    which is 13m. eags can get out from under it with no hit, but it’s on the books. heck, it might be 16m, i looked quickly and was annoyed.

  1610. 1610 Tumtum said at 7:46 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Oh thats right he has a stupid big contract. Makes it so much better.

  1611. 1611 Dominik said at 7:43 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Imagine you have Dave Spadaros job and have to talk up Bradford. It’s like selling the pope a double bed.

  1612. 1612 GermanEagle said at 7:45 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  1613. 1613 Dominik said at 7:47 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I’m telling this to myself since the news broke that WE are the ones who pay with extra draft picks. Nobody could believe this.

    The only approach is: this is too crazy. But oftentimes, that’s just denial.

  1614. 1614 Jarock said at 7:46 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I don’t envy him today. He’s not taken seriously already and if he even tries to say this is a good trade for the Eagles with a straight face, he’ll probably be assaulted in the parking long.

  1615. 1615 GEAGLE said at 7:44 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    LOL just get me my safety and I’m fine with all of this

  1618. 1618 Nick C said at 7:45 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Just don’t get this one… It didn’t put us closer to our “goal” of being in a higher position. In fact, we are in worse position without a second and nick foles. We also have a ridiculous contract on the books. I don’t care what the end goal is, there is no rational thinking on this move. Bradford would’ve been let go and had much cheaper in the next few days.

  1619. 1619 jaws80 said at 7:42 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Bradford’s jersey is in the hall of fame already for his 2010 season. Cant say that about Foles, oh wait.

    lot of good coaches, better resumes than kelly, stink as coach/gm.
    .
    honestly, if he flips bradford for another 3rd/4th, then he rec’d about the value i thought Foles had. i’d be happier with trade if bradford wasnt even invovled, man i cant stand him. just the threat of him being qb bothers me.

    It makes absolutely no sense. Bradford is crap.

    right?

  1628. 1628 botto said at 7:46 PM on March 10th, 2015:

  1629. 1629 Tumtum said at 7:49 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    He doesn’t want Sam Bradford. He had to take him to get that pick. IMO it is another HUGE steal by the Rams.

  1630. 1630 botto said at 7:50 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    what pick?

  1631. 1631 sonofdman said at 7:52 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    What pick? As is being reported, we got the Rams fifth round pick in exchange for our fourth round pick and we also give the Rams a second round pick next year. We did not get the Rams first round pick.

  1632. 1632 RC5000 said at 7:56 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    what are you talking about we didn’t get anything. we gave up a boatload for a broken qb

  1633. 1633 Tumtum said at 7:59 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Wait a fucking second. I thought I read we got the 10 and gave the 20. Did that not happen?

  1634. 1634 sonofdman said at 8:01 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    No. That was initially reported, but was wrong.

    We gave up Foles, 2015 4th and 2016 2nd.

    We got: Bradford, 2015 5th and possibly another 2016 draft pick depending on how much Bradford sucks or gets injured.

    That is why everyone is so unhappy.

  1635. 1635 Tumtum said at 8:10 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Yeah we didnt get the 10….oh my.

  1638. 1638 Ark87 said at 7:51 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    It won’t do that. If you want a simulation I’ll give it to you:

    2 Years ago the Eagles took a chance on a coach who could be special. Sam Bradford (hop in the way back machine, point out all the reasons he was #1 over Suh in the first place). I don’t totally get it, but I believe in Chip and I want Chip to have the guys he wants as that give him the best chance to be special.

    When chip gets fired next year we might get some real talk. But Tommy will keep an even keel through all of this.

    Tommy is going to need to give me a few more hours to cool off before I can stomach a silver-lining piece.

    Feels like the Foles/Bradford trade is part of a three-team swap. We just don’t know the third team yet.

  1645. 1645 Tumtum said at 7:48 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Thats what everyone is saying, but it certainly doesn’t feel that way to me. Unless the Eagles just got dooped, I don’t know of a world where Bradford has trade appeal.

  1646. 1646 HawaiianEagle said at 7:49 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    He does if someone else pays his salary and his future salary

  1647. 1647 Tumtum said at 7:50 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    That is my point. What team wants to pay to take that player with that salary? It makes no sense.

  1648. 1648 HawaiianEagle said at 7:51 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    That would be us. Then we trade.

  1649. 1649 jpate said at 7:53 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    That would actually be brilliant. Clear all the space to absorb bradford to get the deal through.

    Brilliant = genius = chip …?? We’ll see…

  1651. 1651 Tumtum said at 7:53 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Im not quite sure I understand. We pay the salary some how? Is that something that can even happen in the NFL?

  1652. 1652 meteorologist said at 7:52 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    We could pay some or all of Bradford’s salary. We have the cap space lol. Then we trade for Mariota

  1655. 1655 Greg Richards said at 7:49 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    If that’s the plan, you want that already lined up. I don’t give up Foles, a swap of picks this year, and a 2016 2nd for the hope that Tampa or Tennessee might like Bradford.

  1656. 1656 Nick C said at 7:56 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Completely agree. If there was a three team contingency, you do that at the time… Not hope and cross your fingers after getting ripped off. Sorry for jumping off the kelly train, but by itself this trade does not have any semblance of a rational thought.

  1657. 1657 Steve Smegal said at 7:49 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    It sounds like he’s just reaching for an explanation that makes any sense like the rest of us.

  1658. 1658 jaws80 said at 7:48 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    On the bright side, in 2010 if we were to choose between Bradford, Foles or a then highschool player in Hawaii as are starter in `2015, we would hands down have picked Bradfo… jesus, i am trying. i am trying

  1659. 1659 jpate said at 7:49 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I love kendricks but at this point I wouldn’t be upset if he was part of deal that got bradford out of here and MM here. Marriota is the only thing that can salvage this offseason.

  1660. 1660 kevinlied said at 7:51 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Help me out here. If a team in the top 6 wanted Bradford, why wouldn’t it have just acquired him from the Rams? This whole three-way scenario depends not only on some other dumbass wanting Bradford but on the Rams wanting Foles more than its top 6 pick. Is that feasible?

  1661. 1661 Dominik said at 7:54 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    As I see it (and while I’m not drunk, I’m as down as everybody) this is the only situation where the Eagles can come out of this as a winner. Rams liked Foles more than they liked, let’s say, the 10th vs the 2nd overall.

    Let’s not forget, maybe they want a WR or something with the 10th and didn’t want to give it up.

    This all while the Titans want Bradford and, let’s say, Kendricks.

    Not saying that’s the case. But that’s the only scenario where we’ll come out of this.

  1662. 1662 sonofdman said at 7:55 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Maybe a team would take Bradford (but not Foles) in addition to a crap-load of draft picks that we are offering to move up.

Tired of watching dumb fans not appreciate Foles and if I’m being honest, I would rather have Bradford over Marriota or Hundley as long as we can keep him healthy. So I’m not at all upset today, just laughing at all the people who wanna jump off the ledge that ripped me for being upset when I figured out what chip was doing 3 days ago. Funny how the same fools to run their mouth are losing their minds now. I swear my face hurts from smiling 😉

    This is the kind of multiyear building by a guy that decided mike Vick was a better choice that Foles.
    I’m actually looking forward to all this. It’s the road to the number one pick.

    passing yards (3,512). Under the tutelage of former Rams offensive
    coordinator and current Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur,
    Bradford led the Rams to a six-win improvement in his first season in
    the league and became just the fourth rookie quarterback in NFL history
    to take all of his team’s snaps over a 16-game season. During a

  1726. 1726 Greg Richards said at 8:10 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    I think his and Shurmur’s thoughts are that they got Foles to produce 27 TDs and 2 INTs ins 2013 and Bradford has a lot more natural talent than Foles. The problem is that while Foles has suffered some injuries in his career, they haven’t been near as serious as those of Bradford. Plus Foles is a lot less expensive.

    If you want to keep him instead of trade him, then yes, but you should have reached an extension deal before consummating the trade. Now his agent has leverage. I don’t think Chip understands basic negotiation strategy.

    That was the year a 7-9 Seahawks team won the division and the teams were god awful. That was his peak.. really… since then it aint like he elevated the team.
    Your coach just blew a lot of money. And picks. On a guy with a bad knee who never played more than average. And was a spread QB in college.
    It is kind of the mother of all gambles for a QB, if you like to look at it that way. Basically think it was another example of Chip not getting draft value for a player.

    You do have to understand. Before, we had the choice of a backup QB starting, Foles, or a real QB who’s bad starting, Sanchez. I am very much ready to roll the dice on Bradford staying healthy. Good QB play is important. Not some bullshit QB playing out a pretty boy role for all the anxious masculinity fans that wish they were in the game, and generally being an overall liability for the offense.

    he is chopped liver been out w/ injury. average numbers.

    another pretty low percentage passer. career 58.6%, 6.29 ypa. he’s barely average and struggles to stay healthy. nothing special.

    Explain the conditionals on starting then.

    Ahh Chip Kelly I see you just finished up your phone call with Sammy B-Rad and decided to rejoin us.

  1756. 1756 Tumtum said at 8:16 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    How is that possible. Sam Bradford has no value. No real GM would ever take on that player with that contract. I’m sorry, but until this master plan comes together I am 100% out on Chip the GM. To be honest it looks like this thing is being completely bumbled through. It looks like a smoking monkey on roller skates has made these moves.

    Except us *sigh*

  1758. 1758 Jeff said at 8:16 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    So, Tampa and Tenn both would prefer an experienced and talented QB over an unproven rookie, plus an additional starter (1st round pick)…. but one of them must have preferred Bradford over Foles… So Bradford to Tampa??

    So i am considering finding a flight to India and enrolling in a buddhist retreat somewhere for 2 months. Poor heart cannot take more of this.

    I just smoked a 50 of Moroccan hash since I found out about the trade lol

    This might be the worst trade in history

  1762. 1762 myartz04 said at 8:11 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Needs to play out before you can declare that.

  1763. 1763 Tumtum said at 8:12 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Nah… its the worst trade ever.

  1764. 1764 Flyineagle45 said at 8:14 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    If it was what it was originally reported swapping first i was cool with it but now it’s just asinine.

  1765. 1765 mksp said at 8:11 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Seriously, you guys are totally missing the point.

    Our starting QB next year will either be Sam Bradford, health pending, or Marcus Mariota.

    Both are better alternatives to another year of Nick Foles.

  1766. 1766 Tumtum said at 8:12 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    Wait. Are you joking?

  1767. 1767 Alistair Middlemiss said at 8:12 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    MM maybe – Bradford is not. He is bad, as in i have never seen him play a good game.

  1768. 1768 Alistair Middlemiss said at 8:13 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    In fact to take it a step further – Mark sanchez is a better QB than Bradford and has better upside.

  1769. 1769 shah8 said at 8:16 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    not true.

  1770. 1770 shah8 said at 8:17 PM on March 10th, 2015:

    As in Mark Sanchez is genuinely bad.
