This is not news, just speculation due to a dry week besides DHB, but would you guys be interested in Brandon Graham in a trade? Philly has recently signed Connor Barwin to a huge deal, and is looking to add Victor Butler even though he did not sign after their visit, the visit supposedly went well.

Brandon Graham had a great year last year and was even ranked as the #2 4-3 DE according to PFF and according to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller.

Graham has a lot of potential and is great against the run and the pass.

If Philadelphia was willing to trade Graham, what would you be willing to trade for him?

I would personally give up our 3rd for him since he would instantly be as starter and a good one at that, plus he is young. Graham would come home and that would allow us to select Eric Fisher or Dee Milliner at #5 instead of Ziggy Ansah.

Just a thought, what would you guys do and do you think he is even tradable for Philly? I also heard they may try to trade Trent Cole instead, but I'd prefer the younger Brandon Graham.

I don't think Philly will trade him and if they do, it won't be for peanuts.

I would not be surprised if he or Trent Cole could be had. That being said, do we want them? They did not produce in the wide 9 last year and we would have to decide if it was part of a wider failure in Philly or something else.

When Graham was in he was actually really good, go ask Philly fans and they'll say so. We would have the weirdest DE's with him and Jones though. One with monster arms and one with T-Rex arms Laughing

Yeah Graham and Cole were good but there DTs were so bad that they got pressure but the QB would just step up or get arid of it. Graham was ranked 2nd and Cole was 19th in a Bleacher Report article of the top 4-3 DEs of the year.

I thought he had another bad year, had no idea he had a breakout year.

was always so surprised he hadn't been a beast. I'd love to have him here and i think he'd fit really well because he's so good against the run but also has the moves to pass rush. He'd be my most excitable addition this offseason if there was a way to get him

The guy on the block for them is Curry. I guess they only view him as a 4-3 end. He could be had for probably a 4th.
