Another USC dude on the Eagles. I'm cool with that.

Happy trails Fokou and Lloyd Jr.

A little sad to see us let Fokou go, I know he probably wasn't going to make the team, but I always thought he could be good if coached correctly. At least we get something for them. I wonder if the condition for the 7th rounder is if Thomas makes the team.

As for Kevin Thomas , the break down is this...

Drafted in the 3rd in 2010, 6' 192lbs

Had 33 tackles & 3 pass breakups as a backup in 9 games last year. Injury prone throughout college at USC and was out all of 2010 due to a knee injury.


I guess he could contend for that 5th corner spot, but probably we will just get the 7th pick if that is the condition.

The biggest news out of this has to be Kendricks being able to have a number in the 50's Wink

Guess that's 1 way to collect draft picks. I can't see Thomas beating out any of the CB's already on the bubble TBH. Eagles running 2-1 specials. 2 players for a 7th.

True true, but I will say he wears #95 well.

I don't see much Loss from this. Lloyd wasn't gonna make the team. even if Thomas doesn't its basically Fokou for a conditional 7th

let's be honest here, Fokou wasn't going to make it either....

he's been playing with the 3rd team all training camp I believe and haven't even heard much at all about him doing good. He wasn't going to beat out Clayton cause he provides a service as a nickel LB and Jordan is one of the best special teamers along with Colt Anderson, he's also a very serviceable back up. Not that I think both those guys make it, but that's 2 fringe guys that are ahead of him.

agreed, I like it on him, some just say they keep confusing him for a DL, because of it.

I liked this guy entering the NFL. He went to the wrong system and suffered a knee injury. I wonder how that has changed his athleticism, I mean who watched Colts games last season? Confused I viewed him as a more talented Curtis Marsh entering the NFL.

I like the trade, non of those LB'ers were making the team, and now we get a talented Corner that might push for a spot and/or/maybe a 7th round pick.

Now the battle between Jordan and Clayton is more intense. No way they keep more than 6 LBs. Clayton better step on on ST.
