Okay...I've never been the type to get excited over useless speculation. But every once in a while I step outside myself and engage in some "creative thought". Heres my latest brainstorm.
First, kudos to the Eagles for acquiring Peters. Landing a player like that with the 28th pick? Grand slam for the front office. Now for the fun part.
It looks like the Cardinals aren't giving ground in the contract tug-of-war with Anquan Boldin. The odds of a trade grow more each day. Now, it is doubtful the Eagles will ante a first and third for Boldin, and I'm not sure I would either. Thats a very valuable package of picks that would put only a second round pick between us and the fifth round. Now if the asking price comes down a bit to say just one first rounder, then I pull that trigger seeing that ours is the highest among the ravens (26th) and the Giants (29th). In that situation we'd have spent two first round picks and acquired two players in the top five at their positions. Thats awesome.
But lets come back to Earth and try to land Knowshon Moreno at 21. Either way, Philadelphia would be a very happy city come Saturday evening.
