Returns? Receiver? Mismatches? Interesting!

Looks like we gave up a fifth rounder for Sproles.

I'm not positive but I believe this is the fifth rounder we picked up for Sopoaga.

I gotta say I'm pretty happy with this deal.

Yeah, good deal for the birds. A fifth for Sproles is a bit of a steal IMO. He still has some tread on the tires for sure. Makes for a crowded backfield though. I think Polk showed enough that BB is expendable. Do you think the birds could get a 3rd or 4th for BB?

Our return game has sucked shit since Brian Mitchell was here, not to mention a solid backup for Shady. I like it.

A fifth for Sproles? I can only imagine this was discussed during talks about Jenkins because that is a steal. I'm always amazed that we're still finding ways to get more dangerous on offense. We really don't need to touch that area at all during the draft at this point.

Not a bad pickup for you guys. The Saints seem to be throwing out everything but the kitchen sink.

All they're dumping in exchange for an all-pro safety with questionable feet. I guess they think they'll be able to recoup talent in the draft.

Great pickup.

We just signed a guy who has been a pain in the ass to defenses and special teams his entire career.

He's thirty and should be able to give us a really good year or two.

Chip is like a kid with a shiny new toy on Christmas morning. There are more than e few def coordinators worrying out there now.

So we gave up a 5th round pick?

Would you trade Wolfe for Sproles? That' a no brainer!

And what if the Eagles end up adding De'Anthony Thomas in May?

No. Redundant.

We need defense!

Gotta disagree here, I don't think Sproles will last more than a year or two in Philly, gives Thomas a chance to learn from one of the best to play the game in a similar manner to himself. Plus he's a late round pick why not take a shot

Because BB and Polk are excellent backups already. I like the deal but we could leave the offense as is(maybe resign vick) and we have all the depth we need. Defense is absolute top priority, I personally want to see a new era in eagles defensive football that hasn't been seen since the JJ days... That would get me over the moon.
