John Murphy, of Yahoo! Sports, reports the Philadelphia Eagles are showing interest in possibly obtaining Buffalo Bills LB Takeo Spikes, according to a league source. Spikes would need to pass a physical and negotiate a new deal. The source believes the Bills could receive a mid-to-late round choice in the 2007 NFL Draft if both conditions are met. The Eagles would likely move Spikes to the outside if they acquire him. The team could also move him inside and make LB Jeremiah Trotter more of a two-down linebacker.
The Buffalo news reports that a trade could happen today or tomorrow.
Trade negotiations gained steam Friday and Saturday, and a deal might be consummated within the next day, a league source told The News.
ESPN is also reporting on TV that the Eagles have made the "best offer" to the Bills.
I'll be keeping an eye on this one. The Giants are supposed to also be in the mix, but it looks like Spikes is going to be somewhere new today or tomorrow.
Update [2007-3-26 11:46:15 by BleedGreen]: 610 WIP is reporting that Spikes will be in for a physical this afternoon or tomorrow. Barring a failed physical it looks like this is close to a done deal.
