T.J. Houshmandzadeh Sends Text to Philadelphia Radio Station

Jeff DanzigerCorrespondent IFebruary 27, 2009

It was reported today that Cincinnati Bengal's wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who will hit free agency when the clock hits 12:01, sent a text to Philadelphia's 905 ESPN that should create excitement in the Delaware Valley.

The text read, "I don't know what's gonna happen, but if they want me, I will be an Eagle tomorrow."

It seems that Housh wants to be in Philly and maybe they'll get a deal done when he hits the market. Eagles fans have been asking the team to get a big wide receiver for years, and although Housh isn't quite as big as Randy Moss would have been last year, or even a trade for Anquan Boldin this year, it's the best they're going to get.

It is very unlikely that the Eagles trade for Boldin. Making a trade would require the team to wait until the middle of free agency, by the time which other possible acquisitions, such as Housh and Laveranues Coles, may already be signed. The risk is too high.

Coles, however, would be a quality "backup" plan, should the Eagles lose a bidding war for Housh. Coles' numbers are lower than T.J.'s, but he would be a cheaper option.

Stay tuned for updates on Eagles' free agency when the clock strikes midnight.
