There are plenty of prospects who make sense for the Philadelphia Eagles at No. 32 in the 2018 NFL Draft, but if the team is bent on collecting Day Two picks, of which they currently have none, personnel chief Howie Roseman is all ears for trade offers. He said as much while meeting with Philadelphia media on Thursday, telling reporters we’re open for business.
Roseman, of course, went on to note that the Eagles aren’t going to shun anyone making offers in any round of the draft, and he also didn’t rule out the team simply making a pick at No. 32, as PhillyVoice’s Jimmy Kempski wrote. We’re open for business in every round — if it’s something that we think makes sense for our team, we’re going to do it, he said. But at the same time, we’re ready to pick. We have 32 guys we feel really good about. We can’t operate under the assumption that we’re going to bail out, so we’re ready to roll.

But being thinner and trimmer can only help Prescott in what owner Jerry Jones describes as a Dak-friendly offense in 2018 that includes college-like spread schemes.
It’s an offense that lets him be unpredictable. It gives him the best way to be hard for the defense in the sense of game planning for him, owner Jerry Jones said last month. I’d certainly love for him to be able to hurt them from the pocket. We’d love for him to be able to hurt them on the run, and to run. We’re not necessarily interested in increasing the number of runs.
He added that MLB has a commitment to building a stronger connection between young people and the national pastime.
Yeah, sure. Then it was back to creating or at least approving schedules that eliminate weekend afternoon games.
Does Manfred, gut to head, not know that this is wrong? Does he not know that this should not be done to baseball nor should he be the one who does it?
Or is he good with being known as the kid-loving commissioner who allowed the elimination of Saturday afternoon baseball? Can’t shame the shameless.
Rusty Staub used to sigh when he saw me coming. Or was it a shudder? Never a fast runner, he was stuck, either way.
