The Jets and Ravens have been looking to shore up their respective receiving corps this offseason.

The Eagles have reasonable wealth at the position, with draftee Jeremy Maclin joining a team that had five WR's in double digits for receptions in 2008.

So it's no surprise that the Philadelphia Daily News' Eagletarian blog is passing along that the two receiver-needy teams are "keeping a close eye on the Eagles' wide receiver situation."

The Eagletarian mentions Reggie Brown specifically as a player with whom the Eagles would be likely to part.

Brown's role in the offense declined greatly in 2008, so he may be the odd man out as they shape their roster for the future.

Mark Sanchez and Joe Flacco are probably a bit more excited about the Brandon Marshall possibility, but Brown would be a start, we suppose.

I think Reggie will go with the Jets because he will be a starter.

Also the Ravens already have big time WR's so whats the point of going to the Ravens and watch on the sidelines until he gets in the game.
