- Kempski mentions that we should forget about the idea of the Eagles trading for DE/OLB Dion Jordan.
- Kempski suggests a team who employs a 4-3 base defensive scheme would make the most sense for Graham.
This isn’t the first time that Graham’s name has surfaced as a potential trade candidate. The idea first came up a few months ago as rumors began circulating that Jordan could be available via trade.
There was some question as to how long Graham was actually under contract, but Joel Corry of CBS Sports cleared up the matter by mentioning that Graham’s contract will void on the fifth day following the 2015 Super Bowl.
This is important detail because it’s unlikely that an NFL team would offer much in terms of compensation for Graham if he’s only under team control for another year.
Graham, 26, appeared in 15 games last season and totaled 19 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble for the Eagles.
It’s worth noting that Graham was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 16 outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense last year.
