    He's on the market, since Philly has changed to a 3-4 he doesn't fit their schemes any longer, but we're in a position to greatly benefit. There would inherently be a slight premium since it is intra-division, but I would be willing to part with our 4th packaged with two of our 7th for Graham. If I had to I'd go 3rd.

    to the Eagles? never...they wouldn't do this, but send them a 7th for him...otherwise, you don't give good picks (4th or 3rd) to a division rival...the eagles would want more to send a player to a rival and the cowboys would want to send less...can't see a match here....

    Not getting a player of his quality in the 3rd. Draft picks are so overrated..

    I fail to see the quality. He was not even playing well when they were in a 4-3.

    Only if your team sucks at drafting!

    Always. The Seahawks could've traded the pick that used on Aaron Curry for pretty much any single player in the league. He flamed out in two seasons.

    Graham had micro-fracture surgery as a rookie. He might never be 100% again.

    Of topic but, this is the same reason I would probably walk away from Spencer right now even is he is able to participate by TC. I just don't trust that procedure to bring a player back from the dead, so to speak. If he's signed and contributes at a high level then I'll eat all the crow in the world but I'd rather have some other team make that gamble, to be honest.

    Supposedly there is enough depth in this draft, we can get a younger cheaper player, than can develop into Marinelli's scheme. Keep the draft pick, that has the same or better prospects as a player, yet another player, coming off a micro-fracture injury.
    No Thanks.

    If I am trading for anyone they have defensively it would be Vinny Curry.

    He hasn't exactly lit it up either. That's waiver wire production right there.

    Thanks,
    We are much better off waiting on Spencer and his recovery.

    Had a great year in 2012, regressed in 2013 (he had opportunities in the nickel and was nothing special/average.) He's only 6'1 with 32 1/4 inch arms.

    353 snaps last year, 4 (according to PFF) sacks, 5 hits, 18 hurries. Mediocre.

    You're giving away a day 2 (and 3) draft pick for a guy who is nothing special. Miami would not even take him and a 2nd round pick for Jordan - a guy they want to trade. That says it all.

    Look over the day 2 prospects in the draft - a lot better measurables, a fresh cheap contract and youth. No thanks to trading for Graham!

    We already have two or three of him. It's why we are trying to upgrade.

    Why trade for him when we can just sign him when he's released. He hasn't been very good and doesn't fit the scheme--that smells like release to me. They might get like a conditional 6th but that would be about it.

    Graham is someone you give up no more than a 6th rounder.

    Highest a 5th, 6-7th more possible with that kind of production
