Episode #227 crew: John Barchard, Brandon Lee Gowton, James Seltzer, Ben Natan, Jack Fritz

BLG made lots of Redskins fans mad yesterday

Why isn’t what’s going on in Washington a bigger story?

They reportedly made up some fake news about a three way trade.

Chris Cooley, who is employed by them and works for radio station owned by them airs out person things about the GM that works for them

Then they sent Scot McCloughan home and it looks like Bruce Allen is running the show now

And to avoid all of this they extend Jay Gruden and are probably going to give Kurt Coupons way too much money. God bless us, everyone.

So Day 1 of 2017 NFL free agency, the clock strikes 4:00 PM … what is the first move the Eagles make?

We say Kenny Britt is the first one off of the board for the Eagles

We can probably close the book on DeSean Jackson coming back to Philadelphia

Jeff McLane hinted that the Eagles might be in on Jarvis Landry.

Would you rather the Eagles pursue Brandin Cooks or Landry in a trade?

Have we gotten to the point with this Cooks rumor that we are trying to talk ourselves out of wanting the Eagles to trade for him?

John: "We overvalue draft picks so much ... I want the proven playmaker"

Eagles are also interested in hearing offers for Jordan Matthews. Would you trade him away for a third-round pick? Fourth?

We discuss Matthews' value moving forward. Although he might be benefit from not being the No. 1 WR, his numbers will go down.

Either way you feel about it, it’s safe to say Matthews probably won’t be re-signed next year.

John tells us to pay attention to this ESP tweet

We chat about the NFL Combine

Teez Tabor didn’t show up well, so how much does that matter?

We make the case for Adoree Jackson

But not for Marlon Humphrey

Make sure to tune in to the BGN FB Live show Thursday night at 6:00 PM ET as we go over the craziness of free agency.
