What in the world?

"The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Tuesday that they have agreed to terms on a trade with the Houston Texans, giving up a fourth-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft for linebacker DeMeco Ryans.

The teams will also exchange third-round picks as part of the deal, with the Texans getting the 77th overall choice and the Eagles getting No. 89."

yeah, it's a nice pick up for them. He's a good player and will help solidify the middle.

I really don't understand it. I didn't watch many Texans games last year, his numbers fell off maybe he's not a good fit for 3-4?

Either way, I'm surprised his value was so low. I guess he is a big salary though.

BTW I'm sure Mods will move this thread because it's not about the Giants, but I don't agree with that policy. The eagles making a trade like this is def. of great interest to Giants fans.

I think that big roster moves for division rivals should be OK for TAGF

Yeah he has a big salary so the low asking price makes it look like a cap dump.

If Kuechly falls to the 20s then we should trade up and snatch him up.

I don't see Kuechly getting past Seattle @ 12

Not sure why the Texans are dumping so much salary cap space... and quality starters.

I see Kuechly very much falling to us. As far as Seattle, I can see them feeling compelled to add offensive weapons with Matt Flynn in the fold.

Very doubtful on Kuechly falling to us but anything is possible (ala Prince last year).

@OP: Its a decent pickup for the Eagles but not something that's going to make me sweat the Eagles particularly.

WTF?!</P>


Demeco Ryans for a 4th round pick! How the F%$# do the Eagles continue to rob other teams blind with trades? Ryans is a very good LB. I would of loved the Giants to trade their 3rd for him.</P>


Every year the Eagles pull off these trades that favor them so freaking much. Kolb for an early 2nd round pick and a 1st round CB?! I know Kolb would be nothing more then average. But the Cards didnt? Now the Texans give up their former DROY MLB for a 4th round pick! </P>


Does Andy Reid and company have photos to blackmail all these teams?</P>

they got a 4th round pic kand upgraded their third orund pick for a guy that has a high salary and doesn't fit their defense. Sometimes you have to tip your hat to the Eagles. They make some real nice moves like this from time to time..

question is, why wasn't the texans more vocal about this, they prob could of gotten a LITTLE more.

The problem is that LBers are not getting signed in this offseason and he has a huge contract from here on out. I mean Lofton is still out there and Tulloch JUST got signed yesterday

People also have to remember, Wade Phillips changed the D to a 3-4. Ryans was not a good fit for it. In a 4-3, which Philly has, he will thrive. But I do agree, the Eagles stole him. A 4th rounder? Houston could have held out for a higher pick.

Better?

He costs less than what the FA LBs were looking for...and no new contract...meaning the Eagles can release him (if needed for any reason) with zero cap repercussions.

Eagles gave up a 4th and swapped 3rds...so let's not pretend the gave up the farm (ala the Redskins). They still have their 1st, 2 2nds, a 3rd, and their 4th (they had two).

They have no guaranteed money tied to Ryans...as they would with Tulloch or Lofton. As for them being 'better'? I would disagree...but that is a subjective argument... Time will tell.

of course u would

and if u guys signed Lofton and came on here to talk about it and I said Ryans and Tulloch are better, you probably would of said you disagreed with that as well.

It was a good value, but with the situation your team is in I would be cautious with draft picks. You have alot of money locked up and some players will be owed money. I like the move, but we have to see how much Lofton signs for before we debate whether there was a better road you could of taken.

And if your not planning to see the life of the contract with Ryans since u mentioned no guaranteed money, then i would have to say that trading the 4th rounder wasn't the best of ideas.

Incorrect...

I didn't really have interest in Lofton...visit the Falcons board if you want verification.

As for Tulloch, I was luke warm. He was available last year and I thought it was telling that the Eagles didn't go after him then...given his Washburn connection (he wanted Babin...Tulloch not as much).

I hear your point, but I don't operate that way. I'd be honest about it. Truth be told, I had no higher hopes than Fletcher and targeting Kuechly in the draft. But it's hard to not like this low risk move for the Eagles...

I think time has told the story of the Eagles cap management...they will never be in cap trouble under this front office. I mentioned Ryans lack of guaranteed money to emphasize how low risk this move actually is.

The guy is only 27-28. Yes he's suffered a major injury... But that was 2010. He's also now back at his best position...MIKE in a 4-3 defense.

Again...we are talking about a 4th. You won't find many people saying this was a dumb move for Philly...especially considering what their LB status was.

I'd love to hear who...Im not saying it was a bad deal ,Ryans is a quality player but seeing what ILB's have been getting salary wise when u factor in the picks it wasnt quite the steal its being made out to be. I do think Ryans is worth the pick in a vacuum but other cheaper options were available. Considering the Eagles would of blown the pick anyway I dont blame them for trading for other teams developed talent .We all know they cant develop there own

WTF?!</p>


Demeco Ryans for a 4th round pick! How the F%$# do the Eagles continue to rob other teams blind with trades? Ryans is a very good LB. I would of loved the Giants to trade their 3rd for him.</p>


Every year the Eagles pull off these trades that favor them so freaking much. Kolb for an early 2nd round pick and a 1st round CB?! I know Kolb would be nothing more then average. But the Cards didnt? Now the Texans give up their former DROY MLB for a 4th round pick! </p>


Does Andy Reid and company have photos to blackmail all these teams?</p>

The Eagles could of got an equal MLB in FA cheaper and not given up a pick to do it

Really?

I'd love to hear who...Im not saying it was a bad deal ,Ryans is a quality player but seeing what ILB's have been getting salary wise when u factor in the picks it wasnt quite the steal its being made out to be. I do think Ryans is worth the pick in a vacuum but other cheaper options were available. Considering the Eagles would of blown the pick anyway I dont blame them for trading for other teams developed talent .We all know they cant develop there own on defense anyways
