BREAKING NFL UPDATE St. Louis Rams are in trade talks with the Philadelphia Eagles for Wr DeSean Jackson
Taking with a grain of salt till more is known.
I'm game! Him and Blackmond would be out of this world! Even if Blackmon doesn't fall to 6 we know there will be a playmaker for Bradford! Hope his head stays on his shoulders! We know he wants that $$$$$!
I'd be open to this provided the cost wasn't too great. Which it likely would be. If we could get him for a third rounder i would be thrilled. A second seems more likely.
Whats the deal with him, is he tendered? I would love for this to happen, brilliant vertical threat, and electric punt returner....boom, make it happen!
I'd pump the brakes on this one until a more legitimate source reports it. This account is being compared to IncarceratedBob, which if you remember was the laughing stock of free agency tweets last year for proclaiming Nnandi-to-NYJ was a done deal. ALLsportsINTEL also recently tweeted that Matt Flynn is reportedly close to becoming the Browns' new QB, and yet reporters across the country are saying the Browns haven't even had contact and don't plan to.
I guess I wouldn't mind this. I still like the idea of tendering the 2nd round for Mike Wallace if possible. Especially if we can do the Redskins. That would be my number 1 option now.
So it seems that unless we want to give up our #6 overall, we're not going to get him.
This is a tough one. #1 D.Jackson isn't a great run blocker or very durable. He is a headache if not getting catches, but that should be a problem here.
If we go Trent Richardson #6 and have Sjax -- would he be happy blocking alot. He is a touchdown threat but not really valuable in Red Zone packages....
lastly, he doesn't have a contract -- he is the Franchise Tag for eagles and would likely want a long term deal (overpriced) --
Hard to see this one happening....I do think the Eagles will trade him...but I only give a 20% chance of it being to the Rams...
But i doubt it's going to happen. I have a gut feeling that we'll either take a DT at #6 or trade back.
It seems Pittsburgh is interested in signing him to a long term contract so the deal is unlikely.
