    Re:Eagles eyeing Ray Edwards, report says

    Eagles seem to have gone elsewhere for their DE need

    Eagles have just traded for seattle DE darryl tapp, sending lb/de chris clemons and a late-rd pick. Tapp had 7 sacks in 2007
    They also extended his contract

    Saw that, as well.

    This option was a lot cheaper than Edwards. The late round pick is, reportedly, a 4th.

    He hasn't gotten as much pressure on the QB as Edwards has, but Tapp has been playing for the Seahawks, on a horrible D-line, while Edwards has had some talent around him.

    He's never going to be a great pass rusher, but playing LDE on that pretty impressive Eagles D-line should swing his career upwards a little. And he's always been good against the run. That helps, as well.

    Does that just leave the Aints now?

    We were talking about these tenders here in the cubes yesterday (not specifically about Ray) and the feeling is that most teams are using this year as leverage to get players like Ray under long term contracts at a lower pay scale than they would have had to do under the old way of doing business.

    As I said a week or so ago, I can't figure out why the players let themselves get into this mess.
