    Eagles | Dayne could be an option
    Sun, 25 Feb 2007 17:41:38 -0800

    Bob Brookover, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports with Philadelphia Eagles RB Correll Buckhalter testing the free-agent market, the Eagles will probably try to find his replacement from a second-tier group of free-agent running backs. One name being tossed around is Houston Texans RB Ron Dayne.

    Admins, if this is the wrong forum, please move it to the NFL forum. Thanks.

    Nope...... he's unrestricted. He can go anywhere he wants, and we have nothing to say in the matter.

    Dayne makes a lot of sense for the Eagles. Mr. Inside to Westbrooks' Mr. Outside.

    I'm sure you watched him tear up our guys in Week 1, though. The knee problems just mean he'll come cheap.

    The guy is as old as Dayne, has less than half the production, and both knees have been rebuilt.

    How could you want BuckHalter, and not Dayne??

    We signed him to a one-year deal. that year is up. maybe some sort of a sign and trade can be worked out. kubiak seems to really believe in him, though....for reasons unknown. he got hurt during a pre-game workout....ha...seriously??

    Buckhalter is cheaper. Dayne should get at least 1 million and we may be able to get Buckhalter relatively cheap.

    Sign and trade? Why would the Eagles need to bother with that when Dayne is an Unrestricted Free Agent? They can just sign him directly if they want him and the Texans would recieve no compensation.

    Do we really want another RB that can't walk from here to the parking lot without injuring a knee...again?!

    He's only had two knee injuries since he was drafted and played in every game of 2006.

    Where are all of the teams that are interested in Chris Taylor? I would have thought that after his unbelievable game against the Browns that he would be the most sought after running back in the league.

    Now, that just made me laugh. One starting game against the second worst run defense doesn't make a star. On the topic of this post, Dayne is the best running back on the roster. If he goes and we don't replace him with equal or better talent, especially after these Carr is back rumors, expect another 6-10 or worse season in 2007.
