Apparently the Eagles had interest from other teams wanting too trade for Desean Jackson, played hot potato & straight up cut him.  This while extending the ever understanding of PC, Riley Cooper. 

Smoke, Fire...all that stuff.

I think Thomas and Moore are up to the observer.  Some will prefer Carrington or Al Woods to Thomas.  Some will prefer Cotchery to Moore.  Personally, I put Thomas in the "okay" category and leave Moore in the "Meh" category but I realize there is enough angst out there to keep both.  My guess is WR gets better via the draft (though we'll see how much time a rookie WR gets) and we hope/pray that Keisel stays healthy.

Good Lord, who IS our NT these days? Just don't get why you sign Thomas rather than keeping Woods and getting Carrington, since I don't buy Thomas as a true DE in the 3-4.

Moore:  I'm good with that. It seems that you need guys who can run the routes and catch the football as much as you need some burner (Wallace) or head case (enter WR of choice here). I always thought that more was somewhat under-utilized in the embarrassment of riches that is the Saints offense.

Hoping Deebo is patient enough for Woodley's contract to come off the books in June...I'd like him back for sure.

Woodley's in Oakland, I think?

Barring signing Nix R1 (RrrrrRRR), it's Mack.  I agree, we should have kept Woods, better as a swing DL than Cam IMO, who looks like a backup NT only, though Cam did play some end in SD, so who knows.  Either way, no DE starting opposite Heyward, unless suddenly Arnfelt or some guy from the pile is it.  Looks like DE in the draft, NLT R3.  So, CB, WR, DE?  Or some combo thereof.

I'm fine with Moore, though I did like Cotchery's rapport with Ben.  Still, the vet role is filled.  Now we need another big play receiver.  Wheaton may become, but three is better than two; and if Wheaton keeps breaking fingers, it's AB and... AB.

Woodley is in Oakland, but Deebo wants back in Pitt.  Can't see him as having much in the tank.  Coach on the field and spot duty at best.  So, once Woodley's hit is prorated 6/1, we can bring Deebo in to see how the back and knees feel.  Fine.  Cheap signing, tip o' the tam o' shanter, no more than that.

Singed CB Brice McCain, speedy midget nickel back formerly of the Texans.  Your new Curtis Brown, presumably.

Yikes:

McCain graded out as the worst of the 110 NFL cornerbacks evaluated by Pro Football Focus, receiving a minus-21.3 grade overall and a league-worst minus-23.8 in pass coverage. By comparison, Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor, who graded out 97th overall, was a minus-8.4 overall and minus-14.1 in pass coverage.

Maybe a draft pick will push him off the roster.  Hurray, we inked the worst corner in the league!

PFF is one metric, but it ain't gospel.

He's very fast (lose the left nut fast!), and has value at nickel.  But he was pressed into starting on the outside, and he can't do that.  On STs and some spot duty, coach the kid up, could be a role player.

Other news, we're bringing in Darrius Heyward-Bey.  Now, if HE could play some corner...
