The trade deadline is tomorrow at 4 PM and there is now being speculation as to whether the Eagles will get involved and make some sort of move. When asked about it, Andy Reid said, “We are keeping our eyes open. We are looking.”
But are the Eagles really going to make a move here? We know that Michael Vick more than likely won’t stick around after this season, but are they ready to deal him right now? The guy hasn’t proved anything to anybody, so what type of trade value does he really have? There is an article on MyFoxPhilly talking about five possible players the Eagles could trade for. All the players listed are linebackers (minus TO, sweet joke Fox). However, I don’t really see any of them being a good fit. Barrett Ruud is a great player but he is a young MLB and the Eagles don’t need a long term solution. The Stewart Bradley injury was so big and we’re still hurting from it.
All the other linebackers mentioned are playing in 3-4 defenses where they are currently. It’s sad how we’ve gone through so many options as a solution for the MLB position and just can’t find anyone to step up. I thought Omar Gaither was starting to look good but now it seems as though his health might be a problem. Maybe Jeremiah Trotter will come around but what I’ve seen from him so far, I’d rather not even see him dress.
Maybe the Eagles do make a move before tomorrow, but I’m just not seeing it. Do you think they should?
