Creative Trade between Miami and Philadelphia

Miami wants Mike Wallace out while Philadelphia wants DeSean Jackson out. Mike Wallace is a less productive player and is even more overpaid than DeSean Jackson. At first clance, Miami would have to send Philadelphia a mid round draft pick to make the deal work.

The creativity doesn't stop there: Philadelphia has a productive 4-3 DE in Brandon Graham that could help Miami. Miami has a stud in Dion Jordan that the Eagles would kill for. Dion Jordan is the "pass rusher" OLB and Kelly protege that could immediately impact the Eagles. At this point the trade becomes:

DeSean Jackson, Brandon Graham, and our 1st round pick FOR Mike Wallace and Dion Jordan.

There are some reasons this won't happen. For starters these block busters just don't occur in the NFL. The Eagles won't want to part with their 1st round pick and Miami will be unwilling to give up on their top 5 pick in the 2013 draft with anything but the Eagles 1st rounder. That is a GM admitting the team blew it twice, once with Mike Wallace and once with Dion Jordan; that doesn't happen. That said, Dion Jordan is coming off an injury and an unproductive 2013 season. Could this work with the Eagles 2014 & 2015 2nd round pick? Possibly.

Taking a step back the trade absolutely makes both teams better. Miami gets a first round pick, a better and cheaper WR, and a formidable DE. Philadelphia gets a slight downgrade at WR and Kelly's dream OLB who is on the cheap for years to come. The chances of this trade (or something similar) happening is about 1/800. Thoughts? Using the above as a rough outline, what do you think would have to happen to make the deal work?
