The Cards and the Eagles have differing versions of what transpired draft weekend. The upshot, for Birds fans, is that the team just might not be as opposed to trading Sheldon Brown as it has publicly maintained.
Arizona's spin emerged via The Arizona Republic, with general manager Rod Graves saying the Eagles were one of two teams that made offers for wideout Anquan Boldin. Supposedly, the Eagles' offer was disgruntled corner Sheldon Brown and a third-round draft pick, an offer the Cards said they quickly turned down.
The Eagles' spin emerged, as it so often does, via WIP Radio's Howard Eskin. Eskin contends a source told him the Cards inquired about Brown, rather than the Eagles offering him.
Whose version is accurate? Who knows? It is tough to see why the Cards would be all that interested in Brown, having signed Bryant McFadden in free agency and released ex-Eagle Rod Hood, who isn't a bad corner, at all.
