We all know that the air is filled with lies this time of year as teams posture and pose to try and create scenarios for draft day. If a Philly report is true, the thoughts of trading the Browns fourth pick to the Eagles is just another in a long line of misinformed nuggets.
Citing a high-level Eagles source, CSN Philly’s Reuben Frank reports that the report of Philly’s interest in trading up to the fourth selection was “just another pre-draft rumor,” and there is “little chance” the Eagles would jump 11 spots in the draft’s first round.
Frank’s Eagles source did concede that Philadelphia and Cleveland have “spoken several times,” but that could have just as much to do with Browns G.M. Tom Heckert and Eagles coach Andy Reid’s longstanding relationship as it may with Philly’s intentions to make a costly draft-day maneuver.
But they did talk, right? So you’re saying there’s a chance??!?!?? As I said earlier in the day, I’m still enjoying this ride. Hope you are too.
