    • stallworth

      If my memory is correct the eagles have to give up a pick for Donte which was originally a 4th rounder and would only be moved up to a 3rd rounder if they re-signed him - if this is true do you think the eagles are aware of this and may not try to resign him until after the draft???

      just curious cause only giving up a 4th is a lot better then a 3rd.....

      • Michael Griffin would be a good pick, he's a great athlete, his skills and technique really need to be refined though, UT's defense was a letdown this season. A QB in round 2 would be a waste of a pick we have no need for another backup qb at this point.

          • The deal was that if the Eagles signed him to a contract extension, it would move from a 4 to a 3. My feeling is they're going to try to wait it out or see what the market is for him before making an offer. I think it's stupid, but I trust this front office.

            • I don't foresee Willis lasting until the Eagles pick. Given how the team tends to value LB's, I also don't see them moving up to get Willis in the middle of the first round.

              • Another oddity of this year's draft is that the Eagles don't have 10+ picks. It's really weird to think that they won't be mixing it up and such. They also won't get any compensatory picks because they signed Darren Howard and didn't really lose much.

                • Guys, this is really bad. We're getting outclassed by fans of Jacksonville and Tennessee. We have a bunch of good posters, and there should be a lively Eagles debate. No reason why we shouldn't have more posts and discussion amongst us Eagles fans...

                    I usually trust the front office, and I'd like to, but I definitely don't here. Donte loves Philadelphia, if the Eagles were serious about him coming back he'd have an extension by now.


                    @ryan0022....Donte isn't going to be around draft time, dude. He's easily the best WR on the market.

                    • It is concerning to me that he hasn't gotten locked up yet, especially now that the team has had a week after the end of the season to decompress and such. Not even a word from the press about them talking contract. I am starting to get more and more worried. It's not that I don't like Avant and Baskett, it's just that Stallworth gives us such a bigger matchup problem on the outside, you have to resign him...

                      • if you read his comments from the interview on wip he did with howard eskin yesterday (http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/ho...l.jsp?id=63915), you can see andy not being super-enthusiastic about stallworth, saving stronger words for signing juqua thomas.

                        "On whether WR Donte' Stallworth will return: "I enjoyed having Donte' here. He did a nice job. Again, we'll see as the free-agency process starts here."

                        On DE Juqua Thomas and his status: "Again, it's early here. I would tell you this: I'm not real big on losing defensive linemen. I want to try to keep as many of those guys as I can. I think it starts up front, and so I'll look at that very closely.""

                        • Good find, Eye. This is not a positive development to be sure. I think Stallworth's explosiveness was a huge plus for this team. The problem is, he wasn't always healthy and available to be used. When you only play half a season, it's pretty tough. The team did well when Stallworth was out, but they were much more potent when he was playing.

                          • In the Daily News the other day, Les Bowen wrote that he thought the team really like Baskett and Avant and felt that the Eagles might not keep Stallworth because of that. I think they're both fine in the slot or maybe in the red zone with their height, but you can't tell me Baskett would have been as wide open as Stallworth was on that first TD the other night.

                            • Stallworth's blinding speed stretches the D like Pinkston used to do. The main difference is that Stallworth can do other things, has better agility, and has hands and toughness. I like him a ton in our offense, but I still trust the front office here.

                              • well we don't know what the front office will do, so i'll trust 'em as long as they re-sign him. :D

                                but i completely agree with you on his worth to the team. reggie brown is quick, probably quicker than most people will give him credit for, but he just doesn't have the blasters like stallworth does.
