Two trade possibilities involving the Eagles floated in the hours before the Detroit Lions made Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford the first pick in the NFL draft.

One had the Eagles getting Cleveland wide receiver Braylon Edwards and the fifth overall pick for Shawn Andrews, Sheldon Brown and the 21st overall pick.

That is so ridiculous it's funny.

The other story came from the Denver Post and said the Eagles have inquired about the availability of Broncos tight end Tony Scheffler. An Eagles source said the Broncos actually called them about dealing Scheffler. The source said the Eagles could have interest in Scheffler based on what they do in the draft in regards to picking a tight end.
