Apparently Corey Dillion is going to have to wait for a bay area move. The man who cried his way out of San Francisco may be suiting up in the bay area once again. The rumor mill went into overdrive early this morning when news of what could be one of the strangest 3-team trades in NFL history.
When ask why Coach Reid replied “We got the call early this morning and though we had no plans of making any moves with Terrell this offer makes sense for us as a team”.
Philly has acquired two big name players in Jevon Kearse and Terrell Owens this off-season in an effort to solidify a team that has been on the cusp for quite sometime. But this sudden move has many wondering if the risk is worth the reward.
The ever-crafty Al Davis, owner of the Oakland Raiders, made the first call to a Washington team that just acquired WR James Thrash from the Philly. In an effort to update an aging WR crew Davis offered to take one of their wide receivers off their hands. After a few callbacks the first part of the deal was made. The Raiders will send Warren Sapp and Ted Washington to Washington for WR Laveranues Coles. But don’t expect to see Coles in the Silver and Black. Instead he will be wearing Green.
After a few more calls and a little negotiation the deal was set, Davis will send Coles and the Raiders first round draft pick (second overall) to a Philly for none other then Terrell Owens. He will be the one wearing the Silver and Black this season.
This deal looks to have many upsides for the Eagles as they will save money on the contract, get the second pick in the draft, and lose what could have been a major headache. Though Coles doesn’t have the kind of talent Owens does he is still one of the top receivers in the league and doesn’t have the history of tempter tantrums Owens has.
If, for whatever reason, Coles should not produce Reid knows that he will get a more then a slap on the wrist from the Tough Eagle fans.
“I know it may seem idiotic but in the end we think we will come out with the better end of this deal”.
It is unknown whether or not the Eagles will look to trade the 2nd pick in the draft but it is speculated that they are shopping it around for help in the running back arena.
Oakland Raiders Owner Al Davis was visibly happy with his new employee.
“I think that Terrell is going to a perfect fit to what this organization represents and our scheme for next season. I have had this plan in the mix for some time but it wasn’t till today that we decided to make our move”.
Terrell Owens was unavailable for comment. April fools!
