Eagles Trade Brodrick Bunkley for the Second Time in Two Days

After picking up Cullen Jenkins last Saturday, the Eagles were left with an excess of defensive tackles, so the decision was made to ship the under-performing Broderick Bunkley to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a fifth round draft pick. However, it seems as though our former first-round pick had other plans.

Bunkley refused to report to the Browns' training camp, which meant that he couldn't pass the team physical, thus invalidating the deal. Left with not much else to do, the Eagles' front office decided to dump Bunkley to the Denver Broncos this afternoon for a conditional draft pick in 2013.

Bunkley's selfish stunt surely cost the Eagles' draft pick compensation to drop significantly, but at least the team was able to get a small return on their large investment and avoid cutting him. Good riddance.

In other roster move news, the Eagles released undrafted rookie wide receiver Keith Carlos this afternoon, dropping their receiver corps down to twelve players.
