Eagles Trade For Texans LB DeMeco Ryans


Jay Glazer reports the Philadelphia Eagles have just traded for Houston Texans LB DeMeco Ryans. Glazer adds that the Eagles will send a “mid-round pick” to the Texans for the middle linebacker.

John McClain mentions that the deal is contingent upon Ryan passing a physical.

While it may seem like the Texans lost out in this deal, Ryan was due a $5.9 million base salary for the upcoming season which likely impacted what they could get in return for him.

This move comes out of no where as many believed that the Eagles would address the position in free agency. Ryan has been a standout player when healthy and is clearly better than any of the available options in the free agent market. Philadelphia did a great job with this trade.

 I like this trade for the Eagles..They only give up a 4th round pick for a pro-bowler..yes the Achilles injury is a litte concern but he looked good at the end of the season for the Texans…this should make the D alot better then they were

Don’t know if Eagles did as well in this trade as you think.  Don’t know what round draft pick the Texans get, but Ryans isn’t the player he was before suffering an Achilles injury in 2010.
