This deal helps the Eagles immediately. They acquire a 25 year old Pro Bowler who solidifies the Eagles weakest position. In the matter of hours the Eagles have added a Pro Bowler to their defensive line and their defensive backfield. It is quite clear the Eagles are going to be bold and go get big pieces to fill their holes. In addition to DRC, the Eagles also receive the Cardinals second round pick which appears like it is going to be a high pick. Obviously anything can happen, especially in the NFC West, but the Cardinals do not have much of a running game, no longer have Anquan Boldin, lost Steve Breaston to Kansas City, and really only have Larry Fitzgerald on offense. Think teams are going to focus on him? You can take that to the bank. Not even mentioning the fact that Arizona gave up one of their top, young defensive players for Kolb.
This trade seems lopsided but I’m not complaining. I am excited to see DRC running around Lehigh.
