Eagle60 will become famous soon enough
Default What's next on your wishlist?

Unlike alot of people here, I'm just fine with Trotter for another year. I'd love to get a stud at SS though. DT is still a mystery. Bunkley is the wildcard here. And Kearse just needs to return to being Kearse!! Ditto for #5.

LB or Safety for me. I think between Doss and Hamlin, there are 2 decent safeties out there for us. LB is a little thin unless a vet gets cut or they make a trade.

Trade for a big time LB who may be too expensive for his current team or not the right fit:

- Jonathan Vilma
- Lance Briggs
- Al Wilson

NOTE: Before anyone yells and scream - I know these are long shots. But someone aptly mentioned that the trade for Hugh Douglas is very similar. Teams may need one of our stable of o-linemen (Tra? MJG?) etc.

Is Al Wilson on the block? This is the first I've heard.

I think backup RB is the only one left they will do in FA...

They have been pretty clear they have zero interest in Doss...no news on Hamlin.

I think they go SS high in the draft...if they can pull off a trade for a vet LB, then they probably go CB high as well...if they cannot pull the trade, then LB would be a high choice IMO...

This draft will be a defense-heavy one IMO...there may be a QB or TE or OT, but not until late...

Really? I thought Reid reached out to Doss and Doss said "I'm not so sure." I thought it was Doss who was tepid, not the Eagles.

With all the moves the Seahawks have made in the secondary I wouldn't be surprised if Hamlin got cut & ended up in Midnight Green.
My concern is still the LB spot & would love to see Vilma here,the kid can plat out play the game,side to side.
After that I'm still looking at the RB spot & Ron Dayne just doesn't cut it with me.We've got better options(Chris Brown,Mike Anderson,Tony Hunt in the 2nd rd)along with Bucky.
It's still early & IMO we're not done yet.

I remember that report, Steve...but since there have been 2-3 other mentions from Spads and media articles they have no interest...Doss called up WIP last week and basically begged them to sign him saying he thought it was a great fit etc. There have been no reports since...

I may be totally wrong, maybe they are waiting for his price to drop or unsure about his recovery from his injury/surgery or just do not think he fits...I don't know, but he sure seemed to be ready to sign the dotted line and no movement has happened...

Bunkley is definitely the wildcard. I hope he comes into training camp in shape. At least he'll have an entire years experience under his belt, unlike last year, where we didn't get to see his true potential. I think he steps up big!
