Brandon Graham?

(1/2) > >>

spurzo:
An idea from the Grantland football podcast.  Brandon Graham is a better fit for a 4-3 D, won't be a starter for the eagles in their 3-4 and they do have some depth at rush OLB.  Since we're hurting for a pass rusher I'd say it's definitely worth a 4th rounder and maybe a 3rd?  Thoughts.  I realize that these types of trades don't happen much but he sure could help.

I believe Bucs had scouts at their 1st or 2nd preseason game. He hasn't lived up to where he was picked, but I wouldn't mind him.

All Eyez on Me:
Man i would luv 2 c that trade as long as we dont have to give up much. We need QB killaz and this dude was at the blue M.

spurzo:
According to PFF he was one of the league's most efficient pass rushers, despite limited snaps.   

The Anomaly:
We have Trevor Scott.  No one else is needed.

GameTime:
after watching him on LGB's big run, i have serious doubts about him.

JDouble:
Been saying this for two years now. He hasn't been a complete bust for the Eagles, but he hasn't done much and now that they are 3-4 he will be asked to play LB which means he'll probably be even less effective. He could come here and continue to underwhelm, but it's a risk I would take. In college he played with that anger and tenacity that you love to see in a d-lineman. He was on of my favorite pass rushers right up there with Kerrigan and Carradine. I still think he could be great.

Gametime....I feel you man. That play was embarrassingly bad, but more than anything I think it just shows he should not be playing LB out in space. Put him back as a 4-3 DE, let him pin his ears back and rush the passer. Of course in our defense he'd probably be running so many stunts that he'd be out in open space as much as a linebacker anyways!

In the end, he wasn't a pick of the new regime, he hasn't produced, he is not a good fit for their new defense, and he is not projected to be a starter. I gotta believe he could be had for a 3rd or 4th round pick. Well worth the risk imo.

Bucman:
We can't trade our 4th or 3rd until the Revis deal is complete.
