Cowboys and Eagles slashing and dealing, Cards touch Feely
Posted Apr. 02 at 03:52 AM
It's been a busy Friday in the NFL, with the Browns, Eagles, Cowboys and Cardinals among the teams making moves. Here are just some of the bigger transactions being reported by various media outlets thus far today.
Cowboys release Flozell Adams and Ken Hamlin. The Hamlin move isn't a surprise; he's not particularly good. Adams' play has also slipped the last couple of years, but the left tackle's release does leave the Cowboys with a bit of a void at one of the most important positions in football. They'll likely use a high draft pick to address it, or maybe make a play for a restricted free agent.
Cardinals sign Jay Feely. Neil Rackers' shank at the end of regulation nearly cost Arizona a playoff win, so the Cardinals are moving on. Feely was very consistent for the Jets the last two seasons, although he missed a pair of field goals in the conference championship game against the Colts and is now with his fourth team in the last five years. The Jets have Cowboys castoff Nick Folk, but he was terrible enough last season that they'll no doubt explore other options.
Eagles trade Sheldon Brown, Chris Gocong to Browns. According to ESPN.com's Adam Schefter, the Eagles got a pair of mid-round picks, the Browns got a pair of players who will likely start for them (Brown definitely will). Brown's a good player, but Philadelphia had tired of his wishes for a new contract. Still, they'll need to come up with a better option across from Asante Samuel than another former Patriot, Ellis Hobbs. Gocong probably wouldn't have started in Philly, once their linebacking corps is healthy, but he should in Cleveland. Potentially a good deal for both teams.
