Brodrick Bunkley Has Not Reported To Browns, Trade In Jeopardy?

Over the weekend, the Eagles announced that they traded DT Brodrick Bunkley to the Browns in exchange for a fifth round pick. The trade was filed with the league office Sunday and all seemed well. However, it is Monday now and Bunkley has yet to show up to the Browns.

Browns GM Tom Heckert is acting like it's an Eagles issue saying "You'll have to talk to Philadelphia about that one" and saying that the Browns never officially announced a move. As PFT pointed out, most all NFL trades are contingent on a player passing a physical. If the play never shows up to take the physical, obviously he can't pass it, so there could be a danger that the trade is invalidated. If that were to happen, you'd have to think that the Eagles would probably just cut him at that point. If they do, I wouldn't expect the Browns to be major bidders for his services...

This is somewhat similar to when Richard Seymour was dealt to the Raiders. He took several days before he decided to show up, but eventually did. We'll have to see what happens with Bunkley, but at this point it looks like the trade is on hold.
