Brandon Graham reportedly on Eagles' trade block

Overshadowed in the Eagles' pursuit of Dion Jordan is the news that 2010 first-round pick Brandon Graham has fallen out of favor under the Chip Kelly regime.

The team's offer to the Dolphins reportedly was composed of Graham and a second-round draft pick.

Philadelphia Magazine's Tim McManus confirms the Eagles are "open to moving" Graham for the right price.

Originally drafted as a 4-3 defensive end, Graham is a poor fit for defensive coordinator Billy Davis' 3-4 defense.

Finally healthy after battling early-career injuries, Graham showed signs of life as a disruptive pass rusher in 2012 only to be relegated to 27 percent of the defensive snaps under Kelly and Davis last season.

If the Eagles are willing to package Graham with the No. 22 overall pick, the Jordan talks could be revisited. If not, the team would have to settle for a mid-to-late round draft pick in exchange for the walk-year player.

Couldn't hurt to give them a call. Make a cheap offer. I liked Graham coming out.

I thought Graham was going to be fantastic coming out but clearly I was wrong. Given that we're low on picks anyway I don't see a trade as very likely though.

I doubt theyll pay him however many million dollars his 5th year option is worth only to play a quarter of the snaps on D. Sign him after he gets cut.

He sucks .  No more Gabe Carimi-esque trades , thanks. A bust is a bust.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

I would trade that 6th for Brandon Graham before I would draft Scott Critchton or Trent Murphy in the second.

Why is everybody so eager to give up a pick for a guy thats gonna get cut? We're also talkin 4-5 million in salary, so it aint peanuts either if we take his contract. Better to wait it out til he's cut then attempt to outcompete the market for his services.
