    We got a fair value for AJ. He's coming off his worst season and missed numerous games this year due to nagging injuries. He played the least snaps of the top WR's in the league this season and we still got nearly the same draft compensation as the Packers and Chiefs got for Devante and Tyreek. Burks gonna ball out.

    I’m sad AJB is gone. By far the best WR in franchise history.

    but…

    we were never going to pay him what the eagles did. We got a WR that is statistically and athletically similar, plus a 3rd, and saved $20m/year.
    It’s hard to stomach but it was the right move and I’m glad JRob made both trades last night.

    I was a little wide eyed at first -- but was not royally upset like alot of our fanbase...

    We saw this coming weeks ago -- we put it on the back burner because we thought some agreement/extension would be made.

    Even though there wasn't, we knew the possibilities - and discussed at length what we would take in return -- it was basically a salary dump for a 1st and 3rd, which I have no convictions against because it helps us keep Jeff.

    Where I was pissed, was who we selected for his replacement..... Hopefully I am wrong.


    As for contract disputes -- if you whine enough, you're going to become a thorn in every GM's side -- and they CAN and WILL find someone cheaper to do your job and/or earn more roster impact players via draft capital in spite of you...


    I would have liked to have seen us get the eagles low teens pick instead of 18, where we would have had a couple options at WR.

    It's a massive blow for us. J R and vrabs know this you can tell with the presser after the draft. But what I'm glad is they realise this and know what they've done ( which is for the better ment from for the team). ESPN said it's a cheap AJ brown replacement. I just hope it's salary wise and not talent wise. Light it up burks

    No we got a 1st & 3rd for AJ. We kept our 1st round pick until we were on the clock and traded back with the Jets.

    The people on the XM NFL channel today were saying that the Eagles wouldn't have traded for AJ if they could have gotten Jameson Williams at 13.
