i doubt this is true...  
bigblue12 : 4/7/2009 6:54 pm : link
but if it is i have to say...."boy am i good" This is what i proposed (im sure with many other people) a few weeks ago, when people were bitching that they didnt want to give up a 2 for a pro bowl receiver.

I don't pay that much attention to this kind of stuff, but The Eagles would seem to benefit far more with a Boldin than an Edwards, unless I'm misunderstanding your post, good sir

would be a pretty good deal. Still come out of it with 4 top 100 picks. Interesting.

Please, please let this be true! 1 and a 5??
1st and a fifth?  
nygpowerfootball : 4/7/2009 6:57 pm : link
I dont want to get my hopes up here, but this would be the steal of the century. Lets hope there is some truth to this.
A first and fifth  
Master Shake : 4/7/2009 6:57 pm : link
would be amazing if true. I hope that his contract demands aren't going to be what they would of been after his breakout season 2 years ago though.
i really hope its true....  
bigblue12 : 4/7/2009 6:57 pm : link
a fair deal in my opinion. 1 & 3 would be a little rich for me.
They said it's on

Don't be so naive. A first and a fifth is not such a steal  
Anakim : 4/7/2009 6:58 pm : link
It seems like a fair trade for both teams though
JonC : 4/7/2009 6:58 pm : link
I doubt Boldin gets traded. This could be a leak from the Browns "telling" the Eagles to up their ante for BE.  
JonC : 4/7/2009 6:59 pm : link
doesn't link to the football team.
the deal may be done  
Phil in LA : 4/7/2009 7:00 pm : link
but theleague office may be closed.
i agree....a first and a fifth is no steal....  
bigblue12 : 4/7/2009 7:00 pm : link
but fair compensation. I really thought for a while that Braylon would be a Giant and Boldin would be an Eagle. I hope rumor is true.
The Jake : 4/7/2009 7:00 pm : link
what kind of crack are you smoking, exactly?

a first and a fifth wouldn't be a steal for us? tell me, is there another first round receiver that will be available at 29 that will make a bigger impact than Braylon? and who cares about a 5th rounder when we have 2 of them and what, 11 picks in total?

this trade would be nothing less than us raping the Browns with a plunger.

but a "1" and a "5" would be fair.
Kyle in NY : 4/7/2009 7:01 pm : link
after Roy Williams went for a 1st, 3rd, and 6th, this would be a steal
god i hope so  
Eggs55 : 4/7/2009 7:01 pm : link
then i would trade our 3rd to move to the top of 2 and grabe Laurinaitis or hopefully English or Sintim just falls. We would be complete.
The Jake  
Anakim : 4/7/2009 7:02 pm : link
I don't disagree that Edwards is a #1 WR. But he also led the league in dropped passes and has DEMANDED a trade. The Browns are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Having said that, I love Edwards' game
just went to the lockeroom  
BLUATHRT : 4/7/2009 7:03 pm : link
But it was musenelli
forget about all that  
The Jake : 4/7/2009 7:04 pm : link
it's just drama.

analyze the trade from a value exchanged perspective.

Braylon is a legit #1. we can't get anyone similar to him at 29, and thus, giving our #1 up to get him makes sense. the deal is bolstered by a #5 that is almost meaningless to us considering the number of picks we have.

again, highway robbery.
This is not a steal  
Go Terps : 4/7/2009 7:04 pm : link
The difference is  
Anakim : 4/7/2009 7:05 pm : link
Everyone said at the time that the Roy Williams trade was definitely a Lions' winner.

This is a fair trade for both teams, I don't think it's a steal for any team.

But we'll see how Braylon plays  
rasbutant : 4/7/2009 7:05 pm : link
You can listen live here.

Some plowhard on right now, but he did mention that he would dig deeper into what Mike Miss had to say about the Brown/Giants...but he wants to talk baseball first.
Why would a Philly station have this before NY? or Cleveland?  
PhilSimms15 : 4/7/2009 7:06 pm : link
This rumor really doesn't seem to make sense. Why would a Philadelphia station be reporting this before any sources in NY. Might be that there are talks going on, maybe a misdirection by a team, but hard to believe this one.
this is fishy  
nygpowerfootball : 4/7/2009 7:06 pm : link
If espn 950 had it how would espn 1050 not have the story? Or just espn for that matter? WFAN has nothing about it. I am not going to get my hopes up on this.

But if it does happen......steal.
Nice analysis by Jake.  
Giants in 07 : 4/7/2009 7:06 pm : link
With the number of picks we have, trading a 5 in meaningless if we picked Edwards with our 29th pick.
he lead the league in dropped passes  
willismcshockey : 4/7/2009 7:06 pm : link
but look at his YPC. Browns have been consistently looking for him on deep intermediate routes, which is perfect for us, because he'd be stretching the field. Also, the Browns experienced a significant dropoff in their running attack. This is great if true.
The Jake  
cosmicj : 4/7/2009 7:06 pm : link
you have heard of something called the "salary cap" right?

The Giants are going to have to give Edwards a big contract. That's why this isn't the steal of the century.
If true  
DomerGiant2008 : 4/7/2009 7:06 pm : link
its a Win if not a steal for us...

no one we draft at 29 is going to be able to come in and have an impact like Edwards can next year...

and we have too many picks as it is so the 5th rounder isnt even worth talking about
Wow, this would be a great deal...

but it's more than fair value...especially if it's for someone that young, one year removed from a pro bowl season.

Not exactly a steal, about what I thought he would command, although I was hoping the Giants could somehow keep the 1st if they made the deal.
We'd still have 4 picks in the top 100

No need to "force" a pick for a WR, and take the $$$ that would have gone to a 1st rounder to help pay for Edwards..

I say we declare war on Philadelphia
The Jake : 4/7/2009 7:17 pm : link
keep in mind that 2010 is an uncapped year at this moment. very possible that Reese and co. could structure Braylon's contract so that there's a bigger hit in 2010 than there would be normally, which would reduce the cap hit for any future years when/if the cap returns.

again, trust in the reese that he doesn't pull the trigger without an in-depth appreciation for the cap ramifications.

bottom line, if you want to replace what plax brought to the table, you gotta pay somebody to do it. none of the rookies in this class can touch plax or braylon, and they won't be able to touch them for at least 2 years.
An intentional leak by the Browns

is a possibility as well.

this isn't some college radio station doing a prank. this is ESPN. you'd think that there should be some journalistic integrity behind these reports.

i've been very skeptical of the braylon rumours in the past, but when it gets to this point, and news stations are reporting that they've heard the deal is done, specifying what the deal entails and even saying what time the news conference will be to announce the deal, it's not even smoke anymore. it's fire, baby. FIRE!

think anyone thinks they are purposely reporting false information but if there was going to be a press conference tommorow am, then the giants beat writers would have at least psted something about a PC.

This just doesnt make sense. I hope I am wrong. If the giants can land this guy for a 1st and a pick than the NFL is fixed.

5th - Who cares we have 11 picks

How the fuck is this not a steal? A legit #1 receiver that WILL be better than any reachable WR in the draft. Wow he drops passes, so do the rest of our receivers. You are willing to let 13-16 TD potential go because he drops 13-16 passes?

7:57 Update - I've done as much digging as I can -- which included e-mails to every beat writer I know -- and don't really have an update. The fact that I haven't gotten a single reply from any beat writer (they are usually quick) could mean something ...

but then again, it could mean nothing. They all have their own lives obviously, so they could just be busy. But to play Devil's Advocate, it seems somewhat odd to get no reply whatsoever. Perhaps they are all writing their own articles to confirm (or deny) this ESPN 950 report

8:05 - I finally got a reply from one of the beat writers (whose name I will not disclose until they OK me using it) and the news isn't appealing. They informed me that the report also claimed there is a 10:00 AM EST news conference tomorrow -- something the Giants don't typically do for trades. The quote I got was "It's BS as far as I know." However, by all accounts, the writer did confirm that this report WAS made ... which has to make you wonder about ESPN and their radio affiliates.

Matt in SGS : 4/7/2009 9:01 pm : link
the same as Phil, not true. They are and have been talking, but there is no deal set. What I was told that could be the case here, is the Browns people might have leaked this to Philly sources in order to get them to enter the bidding and up the price on the Giants. And it was then picked up by someone with contacts in Philly and the report was then put out. I was told the same thing as I had said a few days ago, if something happens, it'll probably be closer to the draft. My guess is that eventually it does happen.
If this goes down  
Sonic Youth : 4/7/2009 9:02 pm : link
I feel like it'd be for a first and a third. To me, that seems like a fair deal for both sides, given the Giants amount of picks. If it's a first and a fifth, that's even sweeter. It's good knowing insiders have a positive feeling about this,.
Matt's take

makes a lot of sense.

Nick from Goa : 4/7/2009 9:38 pm : link
I had suspicions that the Browns leaked this to Philly. If they did, they have serious egg on their face IMO.
Thanks Matt  
Blue Blood : 4/7/2009 9:42 pm : link
this tells me the Giants have made on offer that either doesnt include a first round pick as has been reported or that the Giants have offered a 1st and a 5th and the Browns want to try and get more out of Philly for Edwards.. Philly doesnt usually respond to this kind of crap however...

Definitely sounds like purposefully leaked info from the Browns camp...
Sammo284 : 4/7/2009 9:55 pm : link
Doesnt usually respond to this kind of junk either. I agree with Blue on this one.

The Eagles also arent about to trade for a guy who theyll have to pony up a ton of money too, which you know would make McNabb demand a new contract.

If this was leaked by Browns folks, its pretty pathetic. It also tells you the Giants have held pretty steady on their parameters of an offer from their end and are sticking to it.
Philly needs replacements for  
Bill2 : 4/7/2009 9:59 pm : link
OLT, ORT, TE and possibly Westbrook relief....all before they get Edwards or Boldin.

They are also a solid organization that will not ignore building the core..the lines and a TE/RB for McNabb
