I'd re-sign Zach Ertz and Goedert both before I spent a nickel on Alshon Jeffery and his 45 catches
You can control a game with 2 tight ends that can both catch

The kind of catches Alshon gives you can be replaced easily
the kind of catches Ertz and Goedert give you - not so much

Heck teams try to cover Goedert with a linebacker 50% of the time
He forces a Defense to make hard decisions

Just my 2 cents

:nod:
The Eagles are done with Jeffrey after the "anonymous" player comments to ESPN last season. He's old news. It's just a matter of trying to mitigate the financial obligations to him.
The Texans will give you picks and take him off your hands

But like 93 said, the Eagles are already done with Jeffrey - the only thing to still take care of is his salary and how it impact the cap. Would love for someone to take him off the Eagles hands. Problem is he's hurt as well as won't even play to start the year, and quite a ways into the season as well.

I could be talked into getting Ngakoue - the top 3 WR's are not going to be there at #21, and there's a chance the 4th best guy (Jefferson) won't be there either. I'm not excited about either the WR from Arizona St or Colorado and we know Howie's track record with picking Big 12 WR's anyway. If it's likely that a top 4 WR isn't there at #21 I'd rather trade the pick for Ngakoue - might even be able to snag a draft pick later in the draft as part of it too.
When did Arizona St join and Colorado return to the Big 12?

The Colorado receiver is a playmaker from what I remember.

I had no idea Alshon was so severely injured...

There was a reason we referred to him as "the oldest 29 year old in the world" all last season. Dude is broke as fuck, and he's a clubhouse cancer to boot. See ya. Thanks for the Lombardi trophy.

That's what matters. He was fragile with the Bears and he learned too much from Brandon Marshall.

Sorry, clearly meant Pac 12, just typed quickly.

The Colorado guy is actually having surgery for something already, I'd be worried about him. The Eagles haven't had a lot of luck with Pac 12 guys others than Ertz - Agholor was a disaster and Arcega-Whiteside, while not a lost cause yet, didn't have an encouraging first season. I'd stick with some SEC guys or Clemson guys if possible just to play it safe.

Sounds like we were wrong about Alshon and his status with the Eagles - Howie spoke to the media today and was very optimistic about Alshon and his place on the team. Even got real and said Alshon knows what people are saying about him (i.e. that he's a lockerroom snitch) and that's he's committed to proving people wrong.

I can understand it, they can't really dump his salary without it being a huge cap hit, so the best case scenario is that he comes back, stays healthy, and performs well. Given his injury history and his age you wonder if he can, but it's an option.

I did see a good mock draft for the Eagles - had them trading up to get one of the top three WR's (Jeudy, Lamb, or Ruggs) and then even taking another WR in the 2nd round (saw them pick Claypool, which I think might be a good pickup if Ertz is not long for Philly as Claypool is like a WR/TE hybrid). I could live with those picks and have those two guys play with Desean, Alshon, and Greg Ward as the 5 WR's for next year.

They would be idiots not to go "WR-WR-whatever else" in the draft, since they decided not to go after anyone in FA. You can't sacrifice another year of Wentz by giving him no targets on the outside.

Howie is just trying to gin up something, anything on trade buzz for Alshon for next offseason. He's worth nothing at the moment because, well, he sucked last year and he's injured.

The real questions:
1) who'll be the starting QB in Washington DC come week 8
2) Will the Giants tank again or are they actually trying to win NOW
3) Can the Bills win the AFC East now (for the love of god)
4) How many games will the Dolphins win
5) Has the NFL cracked the code on the Ravens offense
6) Can the Steelers bounce back into contention
7) Has the Raiders plan come together or are the Chiefs in a cakewalk again
8) Who plays QB for the Chargers
9) Will the 49rs do what every losing Superbowl team does and go 8-8
10) Was Green Bay an illusion
11) Will the Saints play to their skill level and win a playoff game
12) Can Chicago go 8-8 in that brutal division
