    I would think the Eagles would want at least a 2nd rounder. We all know how much Bill loves his 2nd rounders.

    I'd be happy. But a 3rd rounder at most.

    Arrington sucks. How is he starting on a team that is your "dream?"

    Just so he can use that second rounder to draft players like D. Butler and co? He needs to just trade those draft picks away and get some talent since he's obviously clueless at drafting defensive backs.

    That shouldn't stop that Pats from going after him if he were really available.

    Not that it will happen, but this team should do anything to help it's squad.

    If BB has shown a weakness its the ability to evaluate college secondary players. I would trade a 2nd rounder in a heartbeat for a high quality cover guy. A move like that, and barring injuries would put us back as super bowl favories imo.

    I'd do it for a 3rd, but only if he extends his contract.

    A second is an awfully high pick for a guy who is going to be a free agent and would cost over $10M to tag and quite possibly not far from that per year to sign long term.

    I do remember hearing somewhere that DRC was one of Belichick's favorite players in that class, so I'm sure there's interest, just not at that price. A fourth would be ideal, a third maybe.

    slot cornerback. He is a solid player in that position. He has struggled this year but he is better then anyone else on are roster right now.

    I would love to see a player of DRC's ability come here as a CB.

    Personally, I would actually consider it, but there's a big difference in my opinion and that of Bill Belichick, as he isn't very likely to make any trades before tomorrow.

    I do agree that the tendency to try and build within while avoiding the overpriced rate of CB's is a great theory, but it needs to work at the same time. For the NEP that theory has not produced adequate results in the secondary, especially in a passing league + coming off of last yr's disasterous performance from our CB's.

    If DRC were available that's a major upgrade in the secondary...

    i wouldnt trade for him if it wasnt a certainty that he would sign an extension.

    but i am all for going after him in FA.

    Pats bust a lot on 2nd round DBs. Are chances are about 50/50 there wheras with DRC you pretty much know what you are getting. Problem is I think he is a FA at the end of the year so it would only be a rental unless BB was willing to pay out big money to DRC as well.

    No way, for 8 games! The Eagles will probably ask for a 4th.

    The most amazing thing about this thread is that The Riddler hasn't chimed in yet; DRC was his binky around draft time 3+ years ago and again when the Eagles traded for him. He was right all along; wise man, that Riddler. I think the Eagles fire sale is a distinct possibility, and this could happen, I hope so anyway.
