Report: Eagles had trade offer from Jets

A juicy little nugget from Clark Judge of CBSSports.com that I've been meaning to get to all day.

How would you have reacted if the Eagles traded out of the first round for the third year in a row?

According to Judge, it had a chance of happening.

Per the report, the Jets made the Eagles an attractive offer of four draft picks.

Two were in 2010 -- one described as being "a high first-day pick" and the other a high second-day choice, probably a third- or fourth-rounder, according to Judge.

"The Jets were pretty aggressive," a source told him.

The player New York was targeting was Florida wide receiver Percy Harvin, who eventually went to the Vikings at No. 22.

Four days after the draft, most Eagles fans seem pretty content with the selections of Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy in the first two rounds.

But what if the Eagles traded back?

I'm guessing things would have gotten pretty ugly around these parts, regardless of what they'd have received in return.
