  1. Too bad the Bengals don't have a need for Andre Dillard or Jalen Reagor 😄 Bates will cost at least a 2nd round pick in a trade if not a 1st. I can't see the team doing a trade for a 1st but maybe for a 2nd?
  2. I get what you're saying but Clark actually played decently well for the Ravens. I don't think they would actually do Reagor for Clark straight up, but if they somehow offered this trade I'd take it. Dillard for Clark seems more realistic, although it may take a little bit more than Dillard to seal the deal.
  3. Dillard for Clark would be a solid move at this juncture if the Ravens are interested. Probably more valuable than the pick the Eagles would get straight up for Dillard, which is probably a Day 3 pick at this point.
  4. The Raiders and Commanders both have connections to Bradberry via their coaching staff (DC Patrick Graham of the Raiders and HC Ron Rivera of the Commanders) If familiarity with the scheme is important to Bradberry, the Eagles might be a tough sell to him. However they should still definitely make a push to sign him. With all the moves the team made in the offseason, he may see the Eagles as the best shot for him to play in the playoffs? There are still a few guys out there that can fill in the CB2 spot opposite Slay and still be upgrades over our unproven young guys, but Bradberry is probably the best of those options.
  5. Came across this in an article: "During last season Bradberry recorded four interceptions, defended 17 passes, and totaled 47 tackles. While still producing, he struggled in areas that he hadn’t in the past. He finished the season as the 58th ranked cornerback according to PFF. With the recent hiring of defensive coordinator Don Martindale, the New York Giants will be expected to transition to a heavy-man coverage defense. Bradberry struggled in man coverage last season but was still effective in zone. A team that has a preference towards zone would benefit from having Bradberry at one of their corner spots." Since we already run zone predominantly, Bradberry should still be effective here even if he doesn't revert back to his previous form in man coverage.
  6. https://www.nfl.com/news/cap-strapped-giants-expected-to-part-ways-with-james-bradberry-by-end-of-the-wee The Giants tried trading James Bradberry and $21.86 million cap hit before the draft, but were unable to find any trade partners to make a deal. So they are now forced to release him to get them under the cap. The Eagles still have a clear need at CB2, and while they are high on last year's 4th round pick Zech McPhearson and their collection of young prospects, it is a big gamble especially with the fact we are also likely thrusting Marcus Epps into a full time starting role this year alongside Anthony Harris. Bradberry is still only 28 and would make sense for Jonathan Gannon's defense, especially if the plan is to implement more man coverage, if given the proper personnel on the field to execute it. Avonte Maddox is solid where he is in the slot, and is otherwise below average as a CB2. Of course, Bradberry could look for opportunities elsewhere to potentially be another team's CB1, and perhaps other teams may have more cap space to spare, but the Eagles give him the option to stick it to his former team twice a year by staying in the division, without necessarily having to relocate.
  7. The Giants may have no choice but to release James Bradberry. He may potentially still be out of our price range after getting cut, but still worth looking into.
  8. It would appear that Clark becomes the odd man out after the team drafted Kyle Hamilton in the 1st and already signing Marcus Williams to a big deal in free agency. However, they could elect to keep him as their 3rd safety. The Ravens need a WR badly, but Jalen Reagor has virtually no trade value at this time so the Eagles essentially are stuck between dealing 2023 picks versus moving Andre Dillard. Interestingly Dillard was not moved this draft despite him rumored to be on the block, which leads me to believe his trade value is likely not as high the Eagles had hoped. I wonder if the Ravens consider a straight Dillard for Clark swap, or whether the Eagles would be okay with such a move? This wouldn't quite be the same as the Dennis Kelly/DGB trade from a while back, since both guys would project as starters for their new teams right away. I know the Ravens drafted Daniel Faalele in the 4th round and signed Morgan Moses from the Jets to play RT, but they could potentially view Dillard as an upgrade.
  9. Agreed, but I think the Eagles will able to bring in a low cost veteran CB and S before the season starts as a stop gap option. They got Steven Nelson for roughly 1 year / 3 million and Anthony Harris for 1 year / 4 million last year. Even though Tyrann Mathieu signed with the Saints, there are other options out there that should be less costly. Some stop-gap options that could work for a year at safety include Jason McCourty, Jaquiski Tartt, and Landon Collins. Stop-gap options at CB2 include Xavier Rhodes, Kyle Fuller, and Janoris Jenkins.
  10. I was hoping for a CB late, but apparently the Eagles were able to sign Joshua Jobe as one of four DBs as an UDFA! Between the draft, the trade for AJ Brown, and these UDFAs, Howie knocked it out of the park this year.
  11. It's like Howie read my previous post 😄 Great pickup. Has starter upside and we got him without using draft capital.
  12. Wow, I know the knee injury history was an area of concern, but didn't think Carson Strong would go undrafted. He definitely has arm talent and would be worth bringing in to compete with Minshew for QB2.
  13. Who? Apparently ESPN has him as their 186th overall prospect, and 16th ranked ILB NFL.com had him graded as a 5th round prospect Not necessarily a reach, but would have preferred a DB here.

  15. Not that I'm a realistic candidate to win this contest 😂 with some people scoring 3-5 points already, but I am still alive with 2 points: one for Davis, one for Jurgens. I am still listed at 1 point.
