When I heard about the Jimmy Graham to Seattle deal, I was floored. Mostly because I didn’t believe there were trades in the NFL anymore. Then we got yet another Eagles trade, Glass Bradford to Philadelphia for Nick Foles. I was thinking Chip Kelly must have hated Foles. The Eagles were 6-2 when he got hurt? Are you kidding me? At least Foles had some mobility; Bradford’s just a target.
At least there’s some movement. In a league where trades are avoided because they can make you look bad, there are a few teams now willing to make moves. If you want to do it quickly without bankrupting your owner, trades are the way to go. At least you won’t have to give out signing bonuses.
