One Man’s Trash

Posted: February 20th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 110 Comments »

The Lions cut LB Stephen Tulloch and S James Ihedigbo. The Rams cut DE Chris Long, MLB James Laurinaitis and TE Jared Cook.

Should the Eagles be interested in these guys?

Players get cut for different reasons. Some for age. Some for cost. Some due to injuries. Some due to poor fit after a scheme change. Some just can’t play anymore.

Just because a guy is cut doesn’t mean he’s no longer any good. Think about the Broncos. Peyton Manning was cut by the Colts. Evan Mathis was cut by the Eagles. DeMarcus Ware was cut by the Cowboys. They don’t win the Super Bowl without those 3 players.

At the same time, you have to be a careful shopper when dealing with veterans who are cut. The Colts signed Todd Herremans and Trent Cole after the Eagles cut them. Herremans didn’t even last the season in Indy. Age finally caught up with him. Cole proved to be somewhat productive, but wasn’t the defensive playmaker Indy hoped he might be.

Back to the original question…should the Eagles be interested in any of those guys? Yes and no.

Long hasn’t played well the past 2 years. He would be an excellent fit in Jim Schwartz’s scheme, but the Eagles already have 3 good DEs in Vinny Curry, Brandon Graham and Connor Barwin. I doubt Long would be interested in coming to Philly to be the #4 DE.

The Eagles already have a logjam with starting LBs. I expect them to cut DeMeco Ryans some time in the coming weeks and that will leave Jordan Hicks, Mychal Kendricks and Kiko Alonso as the starters. If Tulloch or Laurinaitis were willing to come here as backups, I’m sure the Eagles would have some interest. They don’t have great depth at LB right now. Tulloch would make the most sense. He played for Schwartz and is an older guy who might be willing to be a backup in the right situation. He also is versatile enough to play all 3 LB spots. I’m sure Laurinaitis will want to start for the next few years.

Ihedigbo could be a target. He’s 32 and coming off an inconsistent season, but the Eagles might need a starting SS type.

Cook is an athletic, pass-catching TE, but I don’t see the Eagles going after him. They already have Brent Celek and Zach Ertz in place. Trey Burton could get more of an expanded role in the new offense (no idea if he will). Adding Cook wouldn’t seem to make a lot of sense unless Doug Pederson wants to use TEs a lot more. That isn’t to say the team couldn’t add a fourth TE, but it seems like they would go more for someone who could block and play well on STs.

The Eagles can use help. No one disputes that. They need players who make sense and who make the team better. Change for the sake of change means nothing.

    Disrespect against the great almighty ever victorious Leader is not something that can be tolerated so the politburo needed to ‘remove’ him. Eagles 2015 was a 1 party 1 ruler state with no need for contrarian voices that disagree with the great 5 year plan.

  8. 8 BobSmith77 said at 12:15 AM on February 21st, 2016:

    I guess Tulloch because this team badly needs some veteran depth at LB, he was very durable last year, he could play multiple LB positions, and has some familiarity with the system Schwartz runs. I thought he supposedly lost a fair amount of speed though last year.

    Would he sign here as a backup on a lower base, incentive-laden deal and would the Eagles gamble that he would be a decent bet to regain some speed so he isn’t a complete liability in coverage? If not, you have to sub him out in nickel along with passing downs in the base 4-3.

  9. 9 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:22 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Unlikely that we can target him at the start of free agency… Think it will be more of one of those cases where If a week to ten days goes by and he still hasn’t found a situation that works for him, then we could try to approach him to join us in a role that doesn’t guarentee him a starting spot
    If we have to pay a veteran, he makes more sense to me than Mufasa, who can only play MIddle LB in a 4-3 at this stage of his career. Don’t see how Mufasa could play SAM or WIL if injuries occur.. So on that level he makes more sense than Mufasa..
    But I also don’t LOVE backüp LB’s that don’t contribute to our Special Teams.
    When looking at backüp LB, think it’s more important that they can play on 3rd down in subpackages, then a guy who can come Off the bench and play well on 1st and 2nd down in our base Defense.
    But under the right circumstances, Tulloch could make some sense for us

    I’d be surprised if Ryans is able to get a guaranteed deal coming out of FA. Just too many limitations at this point.

  11. 11 Donald Kalinowski said at 7:24 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    I was so mad when the Eagles chose not to sign him back in 2011. He signed a 1 year deal for $3 million. They decided to go with rookie 4th round pick, Casey Matthews, instead. What’s even worse is that they decided to give Steve Smith $3 million.

  12. 12 Howie Littlefinger said at 7:50 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    even worse as when they gave miles austin 2 mil guaranteed. MFer basically hit the lottery.

    bring back Trent Cole ASAP since we are going to 4-3 let him do what he still does best and he can play the run as well ass anybody

  15. 15 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:14 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Stick a fork in Trent….

    If the Eagles do add a DE, highly doubt it would be ANOTHER veteran. If we were to add a DE, it’s a position we would look to get younger at. Doesn’t make much sense to pay for 4 Veteran DE’s…
    And if we do add more DE’s, what happens to MS2? Im not even close to being ready to assume he is a bust. A BIG ISSUE with his slow transition to the pro game was that he lacked the Neccessary strength, but by his 3rd year in the Pro’s, I would think the strength problem has been solved.. can’t quit on this kid Til we at least see what he can do in his 3rd season under a new Coach who doesn’t hate him from day 1
    schwartz is going to play at least 4 DE’s in every game, so it’s not crazy to think we would carry a 5th DE, but I think it’s very unlikely that we would pay a veteran to be a 4th or 5th DE. Think it’s much more likely that we draft a DE at some point in this draft

  27. 27 Insomniac said at 7:15 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Jimmy is definitely one of the better Eagles writers out there. Some people want to say he’s being biased and a dick but you know what? A look at the bigger picture is definitely better than cherry picked rose tinted views.

  28. 28 ACViking said at 7:19 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    I —

    Totally agree on JK.

    And speaking of JK . . . he’s written a couple of articles on the analytics of Bradford’s performance — including his final 7-game run.

    JK’s a guy who’s been right more than wrong.

    He’s admitted — in the case of DJax being cut, at least — having contacts inside NovaCare steering him in the right direction.

    So I’m wondering if JK’s comments on Bradford reflect more than just his purely personal views?

    I mean, why on earth would JK be thinking about the percentage of Bradford’s passes that go less than 10 yards?

    He may have been. But the guy has a family. And that statistic is awfully obscure to be pulling at without a little help.

  29. 29 Insomniac said at 7:28 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Jimmy is definitely still a hack compared to Tommy but he knows his audience. People might not agree with him all the time but he usually provides a good argument for his opinions.

    We are supposedly going to run Pederson’s version of the WCO. That’s probably going to be a lot of dinking and dunking (which Bradford has done almost all of his career). However, I don’t think that’s Jimmy’s point. You need to make big plays happen if you want to win games if your defense is not historically great and Bradford has not been great at that.

  30. 30 ChoTime said at 7:59 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    It’s not that weird to be thinking about Bradford’s obsession with safe, easy throws. There is actually a stat called ALEX, Average Less than Expected (yards), which attempts to compare a QB’s length of target to the rest of the field. Unsurprisingly, Alex Smith, who the stat was named for, is always near the top (bottom, if you will) of the stat, but Bradford is right behind. If there were no Alex Smith, then the stat would have to be called SAM or something. (Short Average Measure)?

    I always enjoyed the wider look he took with his Blogging the Beast stuff.

  32. 32 ChoTime said at 7:55 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Thank God people are starting to come along about Jimmy. I swear it seemed as if people around here wanted him shot at times during the season. I just don’t get treating a decent writer like that.

  33. 33 Donald Kalinowski said at 8:44 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    I like Jimmy personally because I find his articles hilarious and I did kind of see his career grow.

    Back in those days it was refreshing to read an article that wasn’t “How do teammates respond to Donovan McNabb?: A 5 page article catering to the lowest denominator of the Philly sports fans that takes quotes of context along input from former disgruntled Eagles players- Trotter, Freddie, and T.O”

    That being said, I wish his articles would be more objective and a lot less like Walter Football.

  34. 34 A_T_G said at 8:46 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Honestly, after reading him for years, I was put off a little with the Jackson thing. I thought the mainstream thing went to his head and he was being a bit dickish. Looking back, I imagine he found his views questioned from exponentially more people than ever before and felt the need to defend them to everyone.

  35. 35 BobSmith77 said at 11:21 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    I never understood why Kempski got so much hate for the Jackson thing.

    Personally I think a bit of his coverage is kind of childish at times (not a big fan of the drawings) but he’s generally someone worth following.

    The Eagles have an ’embarrassment of riches’ when it comes to solid media coverage locally because they do have so many writers covering them.

  36. 36 ChoTime said at 9:01 AM on February 22nd, 2016:

    I have to be honest, I don’t read him regularly. Ever since he left Blogging the Beast. His articles are okay, sometimes funny, sometimes lame. I just don’t get what appears to be literally hate for the man.

  37. 37 Media Mike said at 8:43 AM on February 21st, 2016:

    So not needed. Let Bradford go out and see what his market value is and see if you can get him back here at a team friendly number / contract that allows you to draft a guy (Goff or Wentz only please) this year who can chill it out for 1.5 years and then take over for Bradford who we can cut going into 2018 season.

  38. 38 Gian GEAGLE said at 1:54 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Not neccessarily…Might not even come down to that. Technically you aren’t allowed to tamper, but the combine has basically become an open tampering window, where Agents and Playërs talk, and can get better ideas what to expect come March. it’s not a coincidence that we have seen the Eagles sigń players to extensions In the past during the window from when the combine ends to before the start of Free agency….. Many times, an Agent can get to the combine, find out how teams value his client and find out that what we were offering his client is up to par with what the rest of the league would offer him, in which case you can see an extension get done before the start of free agency, OR the combine can show a playërs agent that what the team has been offering to extend him, is significantly lower than what other teams are going to offer him in free agency, in which case, Sams agent would dig his heels in and hope the Eagles DONT tag SAM and allow him to reach the open market..
    by the End of the Combine. The Bradford camp should have an accurate idea of what Bradfords true value will be on the open market, and if they find out that Roseman is offering them a quality deal in comparison to what his agent hears from other teams, we could end up seeing an Extension worked out without needing to hit the open market to find out his true value

  41. 41 SteveH said at 11:04 AM on February 21st, 2016:

    I’m actually really surprised he was able to come back from that last Achilles injury and play even a little bit competently. I remember D3FB saying he looked done by the end the year, but just that he could be on the field and not be a huge liability was impressive.

  42. 42 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:04 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    A) I was shocked he was ready to play week 1
    B) I was even more shocked by how much pop he looked like he had left early this season..
    Then things got complicated, he got hurt, and when he came back from the injury, he did not look like the same guy who impressed early in the season. the second half of his season was pretty bad! There is no sugar coating that. The Question is why did he look so bad the second half of the year?
    Was it a case of him rushiñg back from his in season injury and trying to tôugh it out for us before he was really ready to come back from the Inury? Or has Fathet time really caught up to him?
    Kind of a weird situation.. He tore his Achilles the first time years ago when he was still in his prime, and he was a shell of himself for the Texans that first year back from his surgery, we traded for Him and he ends up being one of the few bright spots to our 2012 mess of a season, and Mufasa went on to give us a few years of quality service. So when he had his second Achilles surgery I was surprised to see him ready to play week one, and even more surprised about how much he looked to have left in the Tank, then he gets hurt, comes back, and hasn’t been close to the same player since.
    when our 3 starting LB’s all have durability concerns, your Backups have to be able to take over and play for half a season if need be. backüp ideally have some versatility, yet Meco could Never play SAM or WIL in a 4-3 at this stage of his career, and ideally backüp LB can play ST. Mufasa doesn’t give us any of that even tho he is making decent money. if Mufasa can no longer play, I don’t think we can afford to pay him to take up a roster spot as a quasi LB coach.. What I do Know is whatever we decide, we Need to Treat that man with the upmost respect! if it’s time to move on from Mufasa, we better have the decency to waive Him before the start of free agency and give him the best chance of finding another job. I don’t know what his contract situation is, but I wouldn’t want to see the Eagles save money by waiting TIL June to cut him (I don’t know if his contract status calls for it, im just speaking generally)..
    If Mufasa is no longer going to be an Eagle, THAT decision had better be made before March 1st, The Man deserves nothing less

  43. 43 ChoTime said at 8:00 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Projected 5th round pick and backup OG for the Eagles.

  56. 56 Gian GEAGLE said at 11:41 AM on February 21st, 2016:

    I was interested in Cook back in 2013, glad we dodged that bullet, his career never lived up to his potential and I just don’t see us paying him to be a #3/4 TE..
    I strongly believe Trey Burtons spot is safe. Pederson already mentioned that his versatility could allow us to not have to add a FB, and Burton is a pretty darn good ST player under coach Fipp.. I also WOULDNT be surprised to see Burton Foourish as an extra weapon in our passing game in Pedersons offense. Don’t think it’s realistic to expect Free agent additipns at TE..
    LB is interesting because it is a big need for us, and we don’t know how this new regime views Mufasa.. It would be great to be able to add an experienced veteran LB who Schwartzy knows well like Tulluch, but he might think he has some more Football left in him to accept what may turn out to be a backüp Role in philly… something else to keep in mind is that if there is an early run on QBs, sitting at #13, we may end up seeing a top LB talent fall to us because of Injuries. Not sure if Myles Jack would fall to #13, but if the Bears and Giants feel they have bigger needs than LB, Jaylon Smith could end up falling to #13, in whch case we would have to give some serious thought to not be short sited and snatch up what was supposed to be one of the top prospects in this entire class.. The problem is that his injury is no joke.. Tearing both your ACL and MCL ISNT something to take likely. There is a real possibility that he won’t be back to the his normal self until yeàr 2, which is similar to our situatuon with Kiko, Fingers crossed injuries HAVENT robbed them of their elite ability forever..
    fortunately, we have plenty of youth at LB, which affords us an option of looking to a veteran, or address it via the draft, where as some positions lack youth like RB, and if we wanted To add someone, we would have to do so in the draft (younger/cheaper).
    We Can’t give up on Kiko yet, there are just too many cases of guys who were a shell of themselves the first year back from Injury and then exploded back to their normal selves in yeàr 2… So I don’t think we can Target Tulloch out the gate in free agency. but if a week goes by in free agency, and he isn’t finding lucrative starting offers. Maybe then we can talk about joining us in what may turn out to be a back up role. I don’t see how we can offer him a starting Job and make him a early free agency priority, but if he is still available a week to ten days into Free Agency, then their might be an opportunity to add in him a role and on a contract that works for us..
    Of Course this is all a moot point If the Eagles ARENT ready to move on from Mufasa

  57. 57 Fufina said at 12:57 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    I have a feeling Mufasa stays… Doug seems to be focused on building a ‘family’ atmosphere and keeping key locker room guys like Peters/Celek.

    Considering we are not overly deep at LB, and while he is expensive as a backup at $3.5mil it is not a huge concern and the team may think his vet leadership, experience and ability to play the run makes him worth keeping around for the year.

  58. 58 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:34 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    I can buy that. Plausible for sure…
    But I would have some concerns:
    1) at this stage he can only play Middle LB in a 4-3
    2) Only a 2 down LB
    3) I dont LOVE back up LB that dont contribute on ST
    As a backup, his lack of versatility worries me. Let’s say KIKO cant play or gets hurt again, Meco would have to come in and start at Middle LB, and move Hicks over to SAM.. Id rather not screw around with Hicks develment so this isn’t Ideal for me..
    My Ideal situation, and it doesn’t have to be all built this offseason, is our 3 young starting LB’s, a backüp with Strong side and Middle LB versatility, and a backup Who is one of the new Hybrid Safety/Linebackers as a Subpackage weapon who can backüp Kemdricks at WIL
    We also have to consider that even tho we all love and respect Mufasa, and would like to build a family atmosphere, It will NEVER get any easier having to cut Mufasa, and he can’t play forever. having to cut that man will NEVER be easy, and it’s inevitable.. Is it better to just rip the band aid Off now, and make this difficult decision at this start of a new era. Or is it better to keep Mufasa, łet him help with the transition to this new regime and cut him next year? I don’t know what the answer to that is… Both are tough, shitty decisipns to have to make. I don’t envy Roseman and the coaches the day they have to tell Mufasa that we are movng on.
    I won’t be upset if they decide Mufasa is still worth what we are Playing him, but I also can’t help but feel that for what we are paying him to be backüp, we could probably pay for a veteran that has some versatility left and can come off the bench and backüp Kiko on the strong side, AND backüp Hicks in the middle, which Mufasa Clearly can’t provide at this stage in his career.
    I haven’t seen Tulloch play In a while, I have no clue what level he is still operating at, however, if he can be had for Similar pay as Mufasa, and has more left in the Tank, while also being able to replace Mufasas leadership, and help our young LB to transition to schwartz defense, It be hard to turn down a chance to upgrade a roster spot even if it’s a player we respect so much.. ESPECIALLY if it’s true that at this age, Tulloch can still play all 3 LB spot and also play on 3rd down, If THATS the case, and he is willing to be a key backüp for similar to what we are paying Mufasa, it be hard for me to argue against it..
    But I really have no idea what Tulloch is at this stage in his career so I was speaking generally. If we can get a backüp who provides much more than what we can get out of Mufasa for similar pay, hopefully Roseman makes the tôugh decision..

    I HATE that motto. “We have to keep him because we’re family and and, he’s a veteran and and he’s a leader and bs bs”. I remember everybody crying when Avant was let go. CK had his faults but he got rid of players regardless of sentimental value. 3.5 mil is huge for a back up. I get that one(maybe two) LB’s will get hurt but putting in someone outside of their prime and thinking “well at least we have a family mentality”. I’d rather see a rookie in there who has a future and can develop for a lot less money. Either way, the rookie or Mufasa will not be playing high level football…
    re celek/Peters — I don’t understand Celek to be honest. I’m hoping he’s signed because Pederson puts value on the running game with 2 TE sets? Please don’t let it be because of sentimental reasons. Peters – unfortunately you have to try and let play because there’s no value behind him.
    If the Pederson is going to keep people unproductive vets around for “family” values — we’re in for a long season…

    In news that will surprise absolutely no one, Joseph Randle got arrested again this morning.

  62. 62 Fufina said at 1:17 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Can’t be. Cowboys have a strong dressing room and special programs to deal with troubled players and can manage any of these guys, so this and drugs suspension must all be mistakes or errors in reporting.

    Dressing room? I like it.

  64. 64 Fufina said at 1:24 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Is a soccer phrase the English use as an alternative to locker room which i like ^^

  65. 65 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:09 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    It’s getting to a point where it’s no longer funny, and im starting to fear how this story will end. Randle has already basically reached “Titus Young Level”…. Someone needs to either get this kid some real help, or lock him up before he can hurt himself or someone else..
    not Sure who is the Bigger Moron, Chip for giving Murray the contract he did and refusing to even come close to playing to his strengths? Or the Cowboys for letting Murray leave and thinking they could replace him with whack job Randle?

  66. 66 Joe Minx said at 2:40 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Yeah, & what might be even scarier is he’s aware of what he’s doing & doesn’t even care.

    During his last arrest, Randle was shown on video saying “my career is over.”

  67. 67 Gian GEAGLE said at 3:05 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Not good… Someone get this kid some help

  68. 68 Fufina said at 3:20 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Generally if someone has not been able to stop at this point they will not be able to stop until they hit true rock bottom. Which will be either in prison or broke in the gutter… unfortunately NFL money means it could take a while for either things to happen.

  69. 69 Gian GEAGLE said at 3:25 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Scary, but true…
    You gotta have some serious problems to so badly blow the golden opportunity this kid was given on a platter. so many RB would have loved to play behind the OL that took Murray to the rushiñg title. Not many backüp RBs get gifted such a great opportunity, and he basically blew it from day one.. Even early there was never really a time where it looked like the decision to have him replace demarco wqs really going to work
    Hopefully His Rock Bottom won’t include hurting himself or anyone else

    Yeesh, tough crowd, I tweeted a joke about signing Matt Flynn earlier today and I lost twitter followers. I thought the sarcasm was obvious.

  71. 71 Bert's Bells said at 2:18 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Maybe it was Matt Flynn and you hurt his feelings.

  72. 72 SteveH said at 3:36 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Matt Flynn isn’t allowed to have feelings after making off with millions of Seattle’s dollars to warm the bench. Hell I’m twice the bench warmer he is and I’ve never gotten anywhere close to a contract like that.

  73. 73 Bert's Bells said at 4:22 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    With an attitude like that don’t count on Mrs. Flynn following you either.

  74. 74 Gian GEAGLE said at 1:46 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    We are close to getting answers to some of the big questions/debates we been having since the season ended. In the past, we have seen the Eagles get some contracts done the week after the combine..
    combine week will provide Bradfords agent a tampering window where his agent can really talk to teams and get a real idea of what the true market for his client will be, and if his agent finds that the numbers other teams are talking about when it comes to Sams value is in the ball park Of what Roseman is willing to pay for SAM, chances are we can get a deal done with SAM somewhere between when everyone comes back from the combine and March 1st.
    If The numbers other teams are throwing at Sams Agent are significantly higher than the numbers Roseman has been talking about, it will be unlikely that we see a Bradford extension done before the start of free agency. no matter what a team or playërs intentions are, if you allow one Of your playërs to reach the open market, odds of retaining him decrease significantly.
    Hopefully the numbers Roseman is offering Bradfords agent will be very close to what other potential suitors are telling Sams agent they would be willing to pffer SAM. unfortunately all it takes is one team to screw everything up and throw the numbers out of whack…
    I would feel so much better about the Eagles if we are able to get an Extension done with bradford and Nolan Carrol beffore March 1st. we put ourselves in position to go into free Agency Only needing to Target Starting Safety and Guard (Longterm or temporary stop gap) as our Main free agent Needs, although we may be able to fix our OL issues without even signing starting OL in free agency..
    SAM Bradford, Nolan Carrol and George Illoka…. Get Those 3 players under contract and we will have essentially taken care of all our immediate starting needs, and the next phase is to start building up the team depth with solid back ups, and some kids who will eventually grow into future starters,,, signing SAM, Nolan, Illoka allows us to go into the draft, not make mistakes reaching out of desperation, and instead affords us the ability to stick to BPA approach since there are only a position or two where we couldnt use immediate depth upgrades (TE, maybe RB, maybe DE)..

  75. 75 Media Mike said at 2:18 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Looking at free agents to come in here is really interesting. Some of these castoff type dudes are good, but do we see their positions as places we need starters?

  76. 76 Media Mike said at 2:20 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Kaufusi would be a nice fit for Schwartz. BIG dude with some decent explosion for his size. I’ve seen him come out of his stance at a good clip. Already has a decent set of rush moves as well.

  79. 79 Media Mike said at 6:52 AM on February 22nd, 2016:

    It is really enjoyable to find guys for Schwartz’s real D as opposed to Billy Davis’s nonsense 3-4.

  80. 80 Gian GEAGLE said at 10:02 AM on February 22nd, 2016:

    You mean chip Kellys 3-4

  81. 81 Gian GEAGLE said at 3:03 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    This scenario is Interesting and it could easily end up being our reality.
    If it plays out like that, you may have to consider the top talents with Injury and Charechter Red Flags like Jaylon Smith, Noah Spence..
    For me, I think its pretty clear that Jaylon is the best talent left, but 1st and foremost, We would have to let the Doctors make this decision. Jaylon Smith should be the first consideration, and it comes down to how the doctors view his injury. Not so much the recovery time, that’s too short sited to matter when talkng about a special talent like this. But it comes down to how strongly do the doctors feel like he will eventually come back from this and be the same player he was before the gruesome injury at the end of his season, and what kind of odds do they give him of not injuring it again in the future..
    If the Doctors ARENT comfortable enough to give us a full green light to draft him, the next name to investigate is Noah Spence who’s talent is certainly worth of the selection but comes with Giant Red Flags and it comes down to deciding If Spence is a kid like the Honey Badger who will grow up, mature and leave the red flags in his past? Or if a year from now we will be cursing Spence for being suspended the first 4 games of his second season?
    Obviously I have no idea how Doctors view Jaylens Injury, and I don’t know Spence from a can of paint… But from the outside looking in, I think gambling on Spence scares me a little too much, and id probably be more comfortable taking a chance on Jaylens injury. The kid may not be back to normal until yeàr two, but I have a hard time believing that in 2016 this injury will have completely ruined this kids career, so in this scenario, Id look to Jaylen if our doctors give us the green light, if Not, we set our sites on trading back, and tryng to find a QB needy team like the Texans who may want to leap from the Rams to draft Paxton or whoever they view as the 3rd best QB..
    I can’t really think of any names, I feel like we Just have to have at 13 in this SCENARIO… Id Love to be able to swap first rounders with the Texans, let them draft a QB, and compensate us by giving us a 4th round pick and giving us their 2nd round pick for our 3rd round pick, and with the Texans pick look at a CB like Apple(not sure if he would syill be available) to start grooming for life without Byron Maxwell when we can get out of that contract next year, or It would be GREAT if a Guard or Tackle worthy of the Texans pick is still available
    We could even look To a DT, but I think he needs to bring an Interior pass rush to pair with run stuffing Beau Allen, so he can’t be a run stuffing type like A’shawn Rob..
    Call me Crazy, but in This scenario, if we retained Bradford, signed a starting Safety in Free agency, get a 4th rounder from the Texans and turn one Of our 3rd rounders into the second round pick we don’t have, It Give some consideration to drafting Zeke Elliot at the Texans spot knowing that there will be some big changes to our RB group these next two years and we have a NEED to get younger at RB… But you can only consider this if you take care of your immediate starting needs in Free Agency (QB and Safety)

  82. 82 Media Mike said at 3:05 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Noah Spence is a drug addict, so I can’t take him in the first round.
    Jaylon Smith’s knee isn’t a 100% sure thing, so I can’t take him in the first either.

  83. 83 Gian GEAGLE said at 3:20 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    I don’t know enough to have an opinion on either, but Talent wise, those are really the Only names I see worth thinking about, before pulling the trigger on a trade back in this scenario.. fortunately, Their evaluation will be complete long before the draft, so a kid like Spence would probably already be taken off our draft board going into the draft, and depending on what doctors say the Eagles will most likely already decided where in the draft they would be comfortable drafting him…
    But just speaking of a pure talent stand point, I cant really think of another name that i would feel is worthy of taking at 13 and turning down a trade back opportunity. Kind of dissapointed In the talent that will be available in the 11-20 Range..
    What’s interesting is Chip Kelly has been someone who believes in taking fliers on playërs with Injuries and now he works for a GM that has always tried to draft Injured players hoping they would eventually pay off in a big way. A GM and a coach who both have dabbled in the pool of injured talent could be dangerous together.. But While they have similar views on injured players, they seem opposite in that Chip hasn’t had any patiemce for CHARECHTER concerns and knuckleheads, yet the Niners GM built a team that was probably towards the top of the league in terms of most playërs arrested.. How is this conflicting ideology between HC and GM going to work? What happens if Baalke decides to hand Chip a player like Noah Spence? Lol

  84. 84 Donald Kalinowski said at 8:23 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    I don’t see the Cowboys taking a QB, Romo is nearing his window and the Cowboys see themselves as a contender.

  85. 85 Media Mike said at 6:51 AM on February 22nd, 2016:

    I agree, but I think other teams could go QB and kneecap us on getting either Goff or Wentz. So I wanted to see explore options on trading down if all of the guys I like for 13 are gone.

  86. 86 James Adair said at 9:57 PM on February 22nd, 2016:

    I think you would have to take Treadwell at 13 in this scenario.

  87. 87 Gian GEAGLE said at 3:54 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Staring to think we don’t HAVE to look to free agency to fix our OL problems, and that it may be smarter to take advantage of as good of a safety group as we can expect to hit the open market, and splurge to solve our safety issue that has plagued us for way too long. We havea solid starting defense mostly in place, we have all kinds of depth needs we have to improve to get the defense where we need to be, but I hope we give some strong Consideration to put an end to the safety mess so that this will hopefully be the last damn offseason where we “NEED A SAFETY”.. Any idea how many friggin years in a row this time of year we have been talking about Safety as a major Need? It has turned into a groundhogs day situation.. Enough! In today’s NFL its become too important of a position to be weak at safety every damn year..
    new Regime, what is their Ideal Safety? A malcolm Jenkins clone! A Kid with Legit Safety Size, legit safety tackling, who can make his presence felt in the Box, but he can’t be a liability in Coverage, not in TODAYS NFL
    enter GEORGE ILLOKA. You can’t ask for a Nastier safety tandem the next few years under schwartz than an Illoka/Jenkins tandem.
    If you ARENT familiar with this kid, we are talking about a kid who doesn’t turn 26 until June, has plenty successful NFL Experience, at Safety he bring some serious Size at 6’4 225lbs, and if that’s not big enough for you he has a monster wingspan of 34.5inch arms, the longest for his position at the 2012 Combine.. Obviously a safety with his size can Lay some wood as an in the box safety, but what makea this kid really good is that he ISNT at all just a box safety, you can ask him to play Center field, and cover some man to man. As a senior he spent a game or two at Cornerback helping to fill in for injuries..
    For me, when we look at our needs and the list of other teams free agents this year, Illoka should be #1 on our list, filling an important need, and I trust the Eagles to find Guards in the draft, much more than I trust them to find a starting safety in the draft, and I have zero faith that they can draft a safety who can start day 1, ehich is absolutely neccessary when our options are Maragos, Couplin and Reynolds.
    While Guard is a need, Barbre/Gardner are much more capable guard options, where as we cant even dream of starting any of our current safeties for half a seson..
    If the Eagles can just retain Bradford,and sigń this young Stud Safety, I can trust the Eagles to take care of OL needs in the draft, and we will have filled our immediate starting needs, so we can go BPA in the draft and strt building up our roster depth where we could use additional Talent at just about every position besides TE and maybe RB
    My Ideal scenario is signing Bradford, Illoka and extending Nolan Carrol…. Obviously Id love top Guards like Osmele, Boone, Sweezy, Allen, but I think it’s wiser for us to take care of starting safety once and for all in free agency, and take care of OL in the draft… Im fine with Illoka as the only major signing from another team. Maybe we sigń an additional dirt cheap backüp types like Jason Phillips, Brian Braman, Maragos type signings. And build the rest thru the draft, unless we can afford SAM, Nolan, Illoka and a free agent Guard, but that’s probably a little too ambitious

  88. 88 Gian GEAGLE said at 4:30 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Pretty annoyed by reports that Skins are interested in signing Illoka, while the Giants are linked to Tashuan Gipson…. Quick reminder of why I hate free agency after daydreaming of an Illoka/Jenkins tandem.
    If Only devin McCourty was an Idiot, he would be an Eagle right now, next to jenkins and we wouldn’t be talking about needing safeties for the first time in I don’t even know how long any more. bastard was smart enough to shun Chips offer and take less money to stay with the Patriots,.. Had McCourty not turned us down, we would be sitting on a great safety Tandem right now, and we would have never been able to sign Demarco Murray… Just another reason to despise the Damn Patriots!

  89. 89 A_T_G said at 5:31 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    I asked Jimmy Kempski his thoughts on Thurmond when he had his live chat. His ideal was letting Thurmond walk and signing Illoka. He thinks he is going to be expensive though.

    On a side note, he doesn’t expect Thurmond to find the market Thurmond is hoping for.

  90. 90 Donald Kalinowski said at 8:22 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    I wish the Eagles had to cap space to sign one of the Rams’ 3 free agents from their secondary- Rodney McLeod, Janoris Jenkins, or Trumaine Johnson

  91. 91 Gian GEAGLE said at 9:04 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Thurmond is tricky.. Heck, Im not even sure what position he will sign on to play in his next contact. Teams could love him at Safety? Someone else could wamt him as an outside corner? While another suitor could love him as Nickel CB..
    This being his first season in like the last 4 years that he stayed healthy could also hurt his negotiating power.. I have a feeling he ends up with one of our Rivals

  92. 92 Insomniac said at 7:19 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Illoka might not get that big of a deal. I think he might get the short end of the stick like Alterraun Verner got a few years ago.

  93. 93 ACViking said at 7:22 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Alterraun Verner . . .

    A guy who was talked up on in 2014 when a FA.

    But too short to play for Kelly.

    Anyway, AV played in Schwartz’s system (under Chuck Cecil).

  94. 94 Insomniac said at 7:30 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Yup. It wasn’t very pretty here when people found out about his contract details too.

  95. 95 Gian GEAGLE said at 8:40 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    With Pacman, old man Reggie Nielson, and Illoka all free Agents, the Bengals have to be morons to łet him walk and re sigń one of the other DBs.
    Part of me can’t believe he will actually reach the open market. But if he does, he should be #1 on our list of other teams FA… Im hoping that a bunch of good safeties reach the open market so that all the teams arent fighting over one or two free agent safeties
    If the skins are Targeting ILLOKA, It probably means he won’t be cheap, but worth our investment

  96. 96 Anders said at 3:24 AM on February 22nd, 2016:

    A guy like Jeff Allen should be fairly cheap.

  97. 97 Media Mike said at 6:50 AM on February 22nd, 2016:

    Allen is a solid name.

  98. 98 Donald Kalinowski said at 8:11 PM on February 21st, 2016:

  101. 101 Gian GEAGLE said at 8:53 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    ONE MANS TRASH: If you want to look for a LB Schwartz is familiar with, you are Barking up the wrong tree. The LB to talk about is Nigel Bradham who reports suggest will be allowed to test the Open Market..
    Athletic LB who belongs in a 4-3. After a Monster 2014 season, you can add Nigel to the List of defendwrs who have been ruined by the Rex Ryan Coaching change.
    The kid had such a down year under Rex and hasn’t heard from the Bills about extending him to the point that he is talking about being perfectly fine with signing a “Prove it deal” if he can’t find the type of extension he is looking for. He claims it’s not I problem, “I have the athleticsm and Talent to prove it”… That’s what I like to hear from a young man who turns 27 in September
    His down year may provide a Young LB, that scwartzy Knows can play at a reasonable number coming off his down yeàr, which should be a better investment than the older tulloch. After how he struggled under Rex Ryan, bet he would jump at the chamce to play for Schwartzy

  102. 102 Fufina said at 9:36 PM on February 21st, 2016:

    Think we have enough ‘vets’ in our LB room already to not need to spend significantly in free agency at the position. Especially considering we could have a LB as BPA at 13, and can probably project to get a SAM in the late rounds i do not see us spending more cash on the position above the odd cheap special teams/career backup type.

  103. 103 TypicalDouche said at 6:28 AM on February 22nd, 2016:

    Only thing about Bradham is that he is a Mike and they would move Hicks to Will. I like Bradham but not at the expense of moving Hicks away from his deserved Mike position. If he’s willing to play SAM then I’m all about it which puts Kiko on the bench.

  104. 104 BreakinAnklez said at 11:50 AM on February 22nd, 2016:

    Bradham played WIL with Schwartz in Buffalo

    I find it odd that our D was so trash due to scheme (3-4) and coaching (Davis), but we’re really only talking about adding one starting player. Schwartz is really awesome, but I’m curious how the season will play out with Barwin/Curry, Cox, Logan, Graham, Kendricks (WIL), Hicks (MIKE), Kiko (SAM), Death Rowe, Maxwell, Jenkins, and new safety as our starters.

    I figure a safety signing is a must. But there should be enough guys there that we’ll be able to at least get a functional starter for one year.

    Drafting wise I figure we could literally use players at every spot on D. We’re not deep and there is a long list of dudes who are “starters” who are either not good, not proven, not durable, or not affordable.

    Eagles just added 4 years to the contract of Jenkins.
