As far as keyshawn to phily, well I seriously doubt it. TO to dallas is more likely.
keyshawn and TO on one team??? sounds like a formula for disaster to me.
I think you missed the post about the Cowboys releasing Me-Shawn.

Personally, I'm disappointed that the Eagles didn't do anything to address their WR issues. The two remaining options however are the most enticing should the Eagles pull either one off.
1) Bills cut Moulds. Eagles sign Moulds as their #1, draft a WR in the 1st day, and in 2 years or so that guy and Reggie Brown take over starting jobs.
2) The Eagles trade for Javon Walker. I would be happy sending over as much as a 2nd round pick for Walker (I think that's more than reasonable for an injured player that GB would get nothing for if he retires). Then Walker, if healthy, can take over as the #1 WR and him and Reggie Brown will make a dynamic young duo for plenty of years.
If they don't acquire either of these guys, avoid the Eagles WRs. Brown and Lewis are huge upgrades over Thrash and Pinkston, but Brown is too young to take a chance on until the later rounds of a draft, and Greg Lewis is a lot like Eric Parker this past year. He's a good player on the team, but it doesn't translate into fantasy points very well.
Westbrook, McNabb, and LJ Smith should all be good value no doubt. Westbrook has been underrated the past 2 years running, and there is no way he should fall past mid-2nd round, but without TO people might get scared. LJ Smith was putting up solid starting TE numbers until McNabb and the rest of the offense went out with injuries, so he's been slightly forgotten. Nice option if you dont want to overpay for McMichael, Cooley, etc.
the thing that gets me is the "list"--instead of taking chris chambers, chad johnson, or reggie wayne, the eagles got freddie mitchell. A ton of these recent problems would have been allieviated. I'd be pretty down with even chambers and brown at this point.
