All of those players have played LIGHT YEARS ahead of anything the Eagles have trotted out in a decade. They are all (maybe besides Pat Pete) in like that top 10 or 15 PFF CB's last year

So is that a by product of the coaching or the GM?

 

You say you want to get younger but pull another Jeffrey/BG type move...Giving big dollars to a player on the back end of his prime.

Have no idea how they’d fit him in salary-wise but give me that man. Mmmm

Philly is going to be one of my 2nd favorite teams as long as Big Play Slay is there. Best of luck to you guys, hope you give him a chance to show off like the Lions haven't been able to.

Its kind of nuts that just for a little bit more you could of had Deandre Hopkins.

I think it came down to asset allocation. Alshon money was killing that deal from the start.

We didnt stand a chance..no breaking down RBs to trade

A 2nd & 4th is a little bit more than a little more

Didnt you trade a 3rd?

- they basically swapped 4ths, the only difference is the 2nd vs a 3rd.

we traded a 3rd & 5th for Slay

a 2nd & 4th would roughly be what Hop would've cost without sending a player. 
A 2nd straight up wouldn't have gotten it done since we pick way later in the round

They also got Houston to take on a terrible contract in David Johnson though, which is negative value.

very overpaid but a big upgrade over last years crew. We need a solid #2, a Safety,  and a legit linebacking core
