Ah ha! Could this possibly be the mystery player Mr. Trotter is eluding too? Could this be the surprise that may be unveiled to Eagles fans worldwide? Does this deal even make any sense?
Heck yeah it does!
Washington was a second-round pick in 2010 for the Cardinals, stepping in and admirably doing a bang-up job as Carlos Dansby’s replacement.
He compiled 76 tackles, 11 assists and one interception returned for 39 yards with a single sack.
But the real value is the fact that Washington can play at both weak side and strong side which fits perfect for a multi-dimensional Eagles defense, which would require such a talent.
Still don’t think it’s possible?
The Eagles have a ton of linebackers who aren’t exactly settled into their respectful positions, a few who could test the open market and the return of Stewart Bradley is overshadowed by the even more pressing question of his lack of durability.
That leaves Jamar Chaney and Moise Fokou as the current “leaders” in the linebacker department, making the addition of Washington that much more interesting.
I don’t know; a multi-positional linebacker who is durable and talented just makes sense for a team that needs a LB more than any other position right now.
And all they have to do is give up Kevin Kolb.
I hope you guys enjoyed my little speculation piece, but who do YOU think the Cardinals will give and why?
