From Eagles 24/7 - I like this a lot!!

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

Safety Dashon Goldson could be available via trade, and Geoff Mosher thinks the Eagles should make a play.

Goldson, 30, might be on the downside of his two-time Pro Bowl career, but he’d be an immediate upgrade parked next to Malcolm Jenkins in the sport Allen occupied for the past two seasons.

The trade would benefit both clubs, giving the Eagles their most formidable safety tandem since Kelly became head coach and providing Tampa more cap cushion as Licht continues to remake the roster.

Goldson, who signed a six-year deal with the Bucs in 2013 to play for then-coach Greg Schiano, has just $4 million remaining in guaranteed money that Tampa Bay would absorb in a deal, but the Bucs would save more than $19 million over the next three seasons in cap space.

Goldson isn’t a perfect match for Smith’s Tampa 2 scheme, which usually employs safeties deep. His best days came in the 49ers’ man-press scheme, which is similar to the Eagles’ defense run by Billy Davis.

Can always use more help at safety

It would fill one of our holes, and a proven veteran for two or three years is probably a better use of a fourth round pick than drafting a player who is more likely to be a back up than a starter.

But it's the draft, and there's always the hope we could get a hidden gem who turns out to be a regular ProBowler with that pick.

I'm leaning towards a split draft philosophy. Keep the first three rounds for our own picks and use the later round picks to either trade for a proven veteran or to speculate on a small school prospect with a big upside.

Plus there's chatter that Maxwell may be on the Eagles list and the Eagles on his list if the money is right. Goldson and Maxwell would be a huge upgrade over what they had. The problem is the Eagles would have to disappoint Mikey Numbers by using up cap space. laugh.gif

That may provoke even more outrage than Kelly deciding to run the damned ball! biggrin.gif

What would this board look like if the Eagles spent all their cap money. I think the color scheme would have to be changed to red and pink with hearts all over it.
