Default Re: Texans trade Demeco Ryans to Eagles for "undisclosed draft pick"

My guess is either a 3rd or a 4th. Won't be lower than a 4th, and won't be better than a 3rd.

That would suck. Don't like this if that is all the Texans get. It looks like the 2006 draft (the Texans best) is about gone.

#Eagles must not have had a very high FA grade on Curtis Lofton. Ryans isn't cheap. Remaining base salaries are $5.9 million, $6.6 million.

I was down on demeco this season but he was coming off a serious injury. I expected him to be much better next season. Damn if I were Owen Daniels is be nervous. Someone in the front office is offing the class of 2006. Kubiak watch your back jack.

3rd could be mid round... could be.

I rank 1 and 2 as "high", 3-4 as "mid" and the rest are late. That said, just my terminology. I have heard 3rd being considered as high.

Default Re: Texans trade Demeco Ryans to Eagles for "undisclosed draft pick"

Man, if all we got for Demeco Ryans who has the potential to be a great MLB for the Eagles team which they desperately need is just another thing I'll add to the list that makes Rick Smith an amateur.

Now if we got a 2nd rounder I'd say that is great value for both teams. But if all we got was a 4th or lower than that, we pretty much gave Demeco away to a team that will really benefit big time from this trade.

Happy for Demeco though. I really like his potential on the Eagles. He'll be a great addition to that team.

I sure as hell don't. Sure, you can find a very good player in the 3rd, but you can very easily find a bust there as well. I think Demeco has the potential to really help a team in need of a MLB who can be a team leader.

If I had a team with some strong pieces, but really needed a MLB, I'd have no problem trading a 2nd round pick for a strong vet like Demeco over some rookie in the 2nd round.

Currently the Eagles have draft pick numbers 15, 46, 51, 77, 99, 114, 146, 177, 185, and 192 plus two compensation picks, probably in the 6th round

My quick take is that DeMeco Ryans is a fantastic pickup for the Eagles for a mid-round pick.
most people are tweeting that its a mid rounder

I think they did this because they didn't manage the cap well. They unloaded salary. This isn't a football decision....we will all know this when Ryans plays well next season.

Default Re: Texans trade Demeco Ryans to Eagles for "undisclosed draft pick"

The thing with not signing Winston, Brisiel, and Mario was that we think there are some players already on the team that can replace those loses. But who's going to replace Ryans? He was coming off an injury and he played well towards the end of the season. Guys like Sharpton and Dobbins in no way in my mind are ready to step into that role. Besides being able to play well, Ryans was a leader in this defense along with Cushing and there's something to be said about locker room morale. This one really has me questioning what is going on in the front office and what Wade Phillips has to do with this. This city will NOT tolerate a step back and if I'm a player on the Texans, specially if I'm AJ, Schaub, Cushing, and Foster I'm worried about the direction of the team.

Looks like linebacker will be a priority in this years draft now that the Texans lost Mario and DeMeco.

The Eagles have an extra 4th round pick from a trade with the Bucs.

I thought Dobbins played really well in the Titans game at the end of the season. He was also in the goal line defense and came up big vs. the Ravens. Ryans had become a 2 down player and lost some of his on field value. The leadership he brought? Well, someone (Cushing?) will need to step up.

Not a real believer in Sharpton. Not a thumper in the run game. Maybe a nickel LB. The Texans probably just found another need in the draft (but not in the early rounds).
