After years of driving their fanbase crazy because of a lack of competent receivers, the Philadelphia Eagles may now have too many.
The Jets and Ravens are aware of this, and are reportedly "keeping a close eye" on the Eagles wideouts, according to Paul Domowitch of the Philadelhphia Daily News.
It's not clear what receivers the AFC teams are looking at, but Reggie Brown is the best guess. The 2005 second-round pick's career has slid the last two years, but he produced 1,596 yards with 12 scores between 2006-2007, so he's not without talent.
Well... I guess the Jets can't get any of the good wide outs on the market. What do Brandon Marshall, Dwayne Bowe and Braylon Edwards all have in common? All of them play for a team with a high-ranking person from the Belichick tree. And no one wants to upset Papa Bill.
Denver is coached by Josh McDaniels, Kansas City's GM is Scott Pioli, and the Browns are headed by our old friend Eric Mangini.
Before anyone says 'Hey, man! Mangini traded with the Jets so they could get Mark Sanchez!' I know... But the chances of another big trade between the two squads is very unlikely. Either way, the Jets would have to give up more than any other team if they put in bids for any of those three receivers.
Back to Reggie Brown: Dude's 28 and has had one OK season in Philly. If he couldn't breakout with the great Donovan McNabb passing to him, what makes anyone think that Mark Sanchez will put him in any better situations...?
