Brandon Graham reportedly on Eagles' trade block By Chris Wesseling Around the League Writer NFL.comPublished: April 13, 2014 at 07:40 p.m. 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.
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.
