Number5 Posted February 17, 2006 Share Posted February 17, 2006 According to Eagles Live (a radio broadcast hosted by Dave Spadero) 1 - Adam Kaplan said that he has heard from Runyan's side. Runyan definitely wants to stay in Philly and he is willing to take a hometown discount as did Trotter. He said he'd be willing to take 20-25% less than what other teams are offering but no less than that. He also said that Runyan won't let the Eagles rip him off so if the Eagles can't offer at least 20-25% of what other teams are offering than he'll leave and that Runyan won't wait long. Kaplan expects Runyan to make a decision in the 1st 3 days if not the 1st. So it's up to the Eagles. Chances are he will be resigned and allowed to retire as a Bird. 2 - Kaplan also says that Will Witherspoons' people believe that the Eagles will contact him once FA starts, and that he wouldn't mind coming here. He says it is definitely an opportunity to pick up an impact OLB and that the Eagles have the money to do pretty much as they please. On the EMB stated by Scapple and almost all but confirmed by PhillyPhreak54, the Eagles are targeting Eric Moulds of the Buffalo Bills to replace TO. The deal is reported to be between a 3 to 5 year deal structured similarly to the one Owens signed. Questions were asked about possible tampering to which Phreak answered, " They would have to wait until he was cut to talk to him but not wait until March 3d. Once he is cut (if before the FA period starts) then he is able to be signed by anyone at anytime." Questions about the length of contract came up to which Phreak responded, " That doesn't mean he'd play 5 years here. It would be for signing bonus proration purposes only. Basically backloading a contract." Intresting bit of information, but most "insider" drafts-nicks have the Eagles taking brusing USC tailback LenDale White at #14. They are calling for the Birds to shake up the ground attack. Also, the name Brandon Lloyd has been running around as well. The young receiver from SF is a RFA and with the Eagles having plenty of picks this year, might be worth the look. His numbers over the past 2 seasons : 2004 - 43 receptions, 565 yards, 13.1 average, 6 TDs 2005 - 48 receptions, 733 yards, 15.3 average, 5 TDs Not too bad considering the fact that they had no passing game, running game, O-Line and bad QB play....... I'll keep you guys posted. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
