Eagles showing interest in Edwards?

Quite a timeline of Braylon Edwards news/rumors today.

A little after noon, The Inquirer's Bob Brookover wrote about Edwards on Birds' Eye View, saying the Eagles should get in on the action if in fact the Browns' wide receiver were available.

Later in the afternoon, I referenced a report on the Giants' Insider, which detailed trade talks between the G-Men and the Browns about a month ago. According to the report, Cleveland wanted receiver Steve Smith (in addition to second- and fifth-ronud picks) as part of a deal for Edwards, but the Giants were not willing to part with him.

Then at the owners' meetings in Dana Point, Calif., Browns GM George Kokinis confirmed that Cleveland had spoken with the Giants about Edwards.

"We exchanged ideas about everything, but nothing really culminated into specifics," Kokinis told Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. "I'm excited to have Braylon on this team. He brings a dimension that not a lot of receivers can bring in relation to going up and attacking the football. He had extremely good production a couple years ago and we're anticipating he has that this year."

And at 7:37 p.m., Grossi wrote that there is talk in Calif. that the Eagles are expressing interest in Edwards.

Granted, that's pretty vague. He does not say a source told him the Birds have expressed interest, but simply that there is talk at the meetings of the Eagles expressing interest.

We'll update with more news and rumors Tuesday morning. And if you see anything that might be of interest to the group, feel free to e-mail me. Many of you did so during the start of the free-agency period, and it was a huge help.

And be sure to check out our Eagles section. The Inquirer's Bob Brookover and the Daily News' Paul Domowitch are blogging up a storm from the owners' meetings.
