Eagles Trade CB Boykin For 2016 Pick




On the eve of the first training session of this year's Training Camp, the Eagles traded sent cornerback Brandon Boykin to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for a conditional fifth-round pick in 2016.

Boykin was the Eagles' primary slot cornerback in each of his first three seasons in the league. His best season came in 2013 when finished tied for second in the league with six interceptions, including the one to seal the win over Dallas to clinch the NFC East division title.

Guess he doesn't want anyone who doesn't want to be here.

Really sorry to see him go, but they were not going to sign him long term so at least they got something for him.
He was the only one that could cover last year and this will not make the defense better

Yeah, I posted as such yesterday. I understand his thinking, but even the best make mistakes. I don't like this.

Like the move a lot. Boykin is a nice player but we weren't going to be able to afford him. They have other players like Rowe that need to play.

I can understand both sides of this. That said, I hate to see him go without having been given a chance on the outside at all.

Same here. I also don't think Boykin had a good year last year. Hope he kicks butt and turns the 5th into a 4th.

You're right flyered. He didn't have a good year-he had a GREAT year. The only time you saw him on Sunday was when he was in the picture and they completed some dinky pass on him. I saw the stat that said they completed over 60% of the passes thrown on him too. Big deal as they are mostly check downs. Guys do get beat sometimes. But I also aw a stat that said that he had his guy plastered more than any DB in the league. I'll bet that he plays great in Pittsburg. Unfortunately, Dick LeBeau is gone now though.
