I'm good on Coleman and Robinson, we need someone with more speed
I'm thinking Davante Adams or Moncrief
Between Maclin's one ACL and Benn's one ACL, I'll count that as one good receiver.
i think our offense will be fine.. my biggest concern is depth..
i think chip's original plan was to go a ton of 2 TE with casey lined up as an H-Back/FB.. but when he saw that avant was a ready and able blocker he used alot more 3 WRs sets
no with having sproles.. i could see us using primarily mccoy, maclin and cooper.. then go with 2 TEs (celek and ertz).. and we shift out sproles or casey
I think they did try... Either other front offices knew something was about to come out and didnt want him OR when a team is shopping a star player they must have figured that something fish was going on and stayed away. And teams not biting on the trade made the right decision, because now a team that wants him will get him for a fraction of the price.
Heard on ESPN but don't remember who said it but they tried. But they couldn't find a trade because teams didn't want him because of his salary for this year. What's interesting is that Desean was basically on a 1 year contract. Supposedly his cap # for the 2015-16 season is around $15 mil and the eagles weren't going to pay him that.
The rumors were teams were willing to give up a 3rd round pick for him, and then once chip and desean said the rumors had no substance most assumed that they werent willing to let him go for a 3rd rounder. Looking back now, who knows if anything was offered....
Exactly. They're not gonna give their reasoning for releasing him now but we'll find out in the future. Whether its in a few weeks, months, or even years from now, someone from the team is gonna write a book or tell a sports writer what really happened behind the scenes.
