The Philadelphia Eagles are trying to get back to the upper echelon of the NFL, and what better way to do that than to acquire a shut down corner.
The Philadelphia Inquirer and columnist Jeff McLane is reporting that the Eagles and general manager Howie Roseman are putting together a package that they will offer to the New York Jets, to try to acquire Revis Island.
There’s already a rumor brewing in certain NFL circles that Eagles general manager Howie Roseman has been crunching the numbers and putting together an offer to bring the 27-year-old Revis to Philadelphia.
I am not sure what to believe. The Eagles are definitely not going to part ways with the #4 overall pick, so now the first pick they would be willing to trade is their 2nd round pick.
They might give up a first in 2014, but I’m not sure the Jets would even care about a pick that they can’t use until next season.
The Eagles would then also have to give Revis the type of money he’s looking for, and the sting of the Asomugha deal is still lingering.
