Eagles trade out of first round

Saturday, April 26, 2008, 5:14 PM
Wow. Lots of guys I thought the Birds liked on the board and they're out of the first round. Jeff Otah, a really good OT prospect, just went to Carolina with the Eagles' pick. They're getting a lot, though -- a two (43 overall) and a four (109) this year, along with a one (yes, a freaking one) next... Read more

Ravens trade up for Flacco

Saturday, April 26, 2008, 5:08 PM
The Ravens, who earlier traded down from 8 to 26 after quarterback Matt Ryan got taken, traded back up to Houston's spot at 18, where they took Delaware QB Joe Flacco. They initially thought Flacco would fall to them at 26. But they were worried that somebody would trade up the Eagles' spot at 19,... Read more

The Lito Suspense Builds

Saturday, April 26, 2008, 4:37 PM
I think I like this rumor about Pro Bowl offensive tackle Jammal Brown being part of the Saints' offer for Lito Sheppard. It's almost too good to be true, unless there's some problem with Brown. If you really wanted an elite wideout for Lito, here's the deal: If you've been reading any of the stories... Read more

Could Flacco be headed for Baltimore?

Saturday, April 26, 2008, 4:11 PM
With the Ravens trading down with Jacksonville from No. 8 to 26, don't be surprised to see them target one of the other top quarterbacks in the draft -- Delaware's Joe Flacco, Louisville's Brian Brohm or Michigan's Chad Henne -- at 26. Read more

Raider running backs for sale

Saturday, April 26, 2008, 3:41 PM
Raiders coach Lane Kiffin had little input into the Raiders' selection of Darren McFadden. Kiffin would've preferred to take a defensive player -- DT Glenn Dorsey or DE/LB Vernon Gholston -- rather than McFadden because he felt they were fine at RB with Justin Fargas, Dominic Rhodes, Michael Bush and...

Saturday, April 26, 2008, 2:13 PM
From Joseph Santoliquito at the NFL draft in New York: After all the speculation, all the clandestine whispers that would make a CIA agent envious, Matt Ryan wound up going right where many speculated he would go — to the Atlanta Falcons, with the third pick overall in today’s NFL Draft...

C'mon Eagles, I don't want to have to take hostages ...

Saturday, April 26, 2008, 2:12 PM
Peter King of Sports Illustrated is an eminent expert, much more eminent than your lowly Eagletarian. Still, he throws a lot of stuff out there; some of it is accurate, some of it he seems to be pulling straight out of his Starbucks-loving derriere. I really hope this item he posted last night was...

Saturday, April 26, 2008, 12:04 PM
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, whose team owns the 22nd and 28th overall picks in the first round is trying to trade up to get Arkansas running back Darren McFadden.
