Would You Want the Eagles to Trade for Darrelle Revis?

Over at ESPN’s NFC East Blog, Dan Graziano wonders which
team from the division could be a potential suitor for New York Jets All-Pro cornerback
Darrelle Revis, who has been the subject of trade rumors. Graziano rules out
the Cowboys, Giants, and Redskins, which leaves just one potential destination.

Which leaves the Philadelphia
Eagles, who have the need for Revis as well as the ability to both get him and
pay him. I think they need to make the effort.

The Eagles' biggest area of need is
the secondary, where none of last year's four starters look like appealing
options for 2013. They have to rebuild that whole thing, and what better way to
start than by making a big-splash acquisition of the best defensive back in the
league? They could release Nnamdi Asomugha, who was billed two years ago as something
close to Revis but turned out to be very much not, and replace him with the
real thing.

It sounds well and good. Who wouldn’t want the Eagles to
acquire Revis Island, unquestionably the best corner in the NFL, even if he
does want to be paid like it and is recovering
from a torn ACL? No sarcasm intended.

The problem? Graziano might be a little light in
compensation, suggesting a deal could get done for the Birds’ third-round pick.
The thinking there is Revis’ value is down because of his injury, and the Jets
would like to get something for him before he bolts as an unrestricted free
agent next year.

I’m not so sure. It’s hard to envision Revis going anywhere unless
there are multiple picks in the exchange, let alone with a third rounder as the
centerpiece. If it can get done for that price, it should have been done
