Default The value of Bradford

The Eagles desperately need a WR, and we have quite a few potentially good ones. I am curious what Corey Bradfords stock is looking like. What kind of trade value does he possess? Could we get a first or second round pick in exchange for him? IMO, if we are venturing onto the side of youth over experience than we should trade him if we can benefit and let Mathis take the 2 spot. Only concern is can Armstrong or Starling back him up at 2. If Mathis takes the 2 spot, ould it be best for us to keep Bradford as a solid back-up 2 or let one of the other youngsters have a crack at that too.

I just think that a team who needs a quality WR and knows of Bradfords experience and success with GB (because he has not had as much success here) might give a high draft pick or some trade of high value.

He has little to no trade value. The guy couldnt get a contract from anyone during the offseason so he signed on for another year here. A first round pick??? That's funny. Plus Palmer or Capers on SR610 this morning said that Bradford is having his best training camp since coming here. I dont think we can release Bradford. He maybe inconistent but I like him and you cant go into the season with 2 possesion receivers and a guy coming out for a 2nd-tier division in college and hope to keep pressure of AJ...


He hasnt been a be-all-end-all-player here, but Bradford has had some success...

If the Eagles wanted someone equal to Corey Bradford's talents they can probably just follow the waver wire.

If a team is desperate, and believes bradford might compliment a #1 they wont give up a second rounder to tyy and save the season. Look at Philly, all they really have is TO, they need someone now. OK of not a second round what about a third and then again would it be more valuable to keep him for depth and experience. I just dont think he has been working out here and we have tons of good depth at WR.

NO NO NO NO NO

1st or 2nd round pick for Bradford? You can't be serious.

If thats the case and he repeats last years perfomance we ouldnt even get a 7th round pick for him. If bluntly we cannot get even a 3rd round pick for him now,there is no way he is good enough for our # 2 spot.

As Vinny, me, and many other people on this board have said, the #2 WR spot will be by committe. Depending on the matchups and situations, a different guy will be playing #2. And plus, we use the 3-WR set more than anything so the #2 guy on the depth chart doesnt mean anything...

They just played the Palmer clip again:
"Bradford is having his best camp since he has been here and a lot of people like to rip Gaffney but he had 21 receptions on 3rd down last year, all converted to 1st downs"
Almost word-for-word

It would be a 6th if we're lucky. Conditional 7th to be realistic. So basically no chance.

Corey Simon sounds unhappy, how about a straight up trade.
Maybe when

Why is it that people constantly want to get high picks for players they don't value themselves?

Will you buy my used shoes for $100? They are still wearable and you could use a pair. I just don't need them any more. Granted they are worth about $10, but will you give me $100 for them?

Well...in Madden I traded Bradford for a 2nd & 3rd round pick. Then I traded those picks for a 1st rounder (silly Bengals!). I took that 1st round pick and got Ray Lewis!

What do you mean "It'll never happen"?

You might want to cut back on whatever it is your smoking. Bradford has virtually zero trade value. Maybe a conditional 6th or 7th, but I doubt you would even get that for him. He is worth more to us this year than what a 7th rounder would bring. He either makes the team out of camp (extremely likely) or we cut him, and the Eagles can take him off the waiver wire.

I'd take cash and a conditional 7th rounder just to be done with him and let Armstrong get out there and do his thing. Bradford seems to catch everything in practice but can't catch a cold in a game that counts.
