If the Eagles beat the Redskins last night, I think it would be highly likely that they would consider cutting him.... But, with the loss, I think they'll do what they have to to get him back on the field one way or another for the remainder of '05..... And then they'll try to trade him after the season....
If they did give him the boot, I think some of the top bidders would be:
Minnesota - the loss of Moss looms large, and they're going to be looking to rectify that mistake...
Dallas - they have the cap room, and need a wide-out... If Parcell's can deal with Keyshawn, he might think he can reign in TO
Jacksonville - Has cap room, and there's a good chance Jimmy hangs it up after this year
Denver - Has cap room, and there's a good chance Rod hangs it up after this year
San Diego - Has cap space one they dump Rivers, and you can't win championships with a TE as your primary receiver, besides how sick would it be to have TO and LT on one squad?
Oakland - Moss and TO ?!? How sick would that be? The Raiders will buy up any and all of the league's rejects... I'm not sure about their cap space, but if they could swing it, talk about a deadly combo...
Washington - Danny Snyder will buy just about anything that hits the market... The Skins could probably use a receiver with some size to pair with Santana Moss, and if they can move LaVar Arrington and Patrick Ramsey, it'll free up some cap space, too.... (Hell, it's possible the Eagles might trade TO for LaVar straight up if the Eagles don't cut him....)
With all of this said, I seriously doubt the Eagles cut a guy with so much trade value... They'll look to trade him for picks, I'm sure, and some of the teams that might have high enough picks to snag TO in a trade AND might be willing to bring him in would be:
Baltimore - How ironic would that be?
Oakland - Again, how sick would a Moss / TO combo be?
The Saints - whether they're in LA or San Antonio, they could still use someone to replace Joe Horn, who is clearly showing his age....
