Trade LJ and TG to the Eagles?

From the Bleacher Report

"Word is, that no matter how much the Chiefs say that Tony Gonzalez doesn’t want to be traded, people close to him have said different.

Larry Johnson has also seemed to have worn out his welcome in KC, and will most likely be put on the trading block, if he’s not there already.

So what does this mean for the Eagles? Plenty. 

Most fans would agree that our biggest need is a big back to complement Brian Westbrook, and to upgrade at the tight end position. Johnson and Gonzalez would solve both of those problems, respectively.

Granted, Gonzalez isn’t young anymore and Johnson has a lot of miles on him, but they would be better than anything we could find in the Draft while contributing immediately.

The going rate on a tight end seems to be a second and a fifth. This would be no problem for the Eagles to oblige because of their abundance of draft picks, and is well worth it for one of the greatest tight ends to ever play the game.

Johnson is still a great talent, and would be a wonderful second punch to Westbrook because of his combination of size and agility. 

Because of how disgruntled he is, the Chiefs may part ways with him for a third-round pick and a veteran player, maybe a guy like Matt Schobel or Reggie Brown.

These are obviously short-term solutions, so the positions would still need to be addressed. Perhaps the Eagles could still grab Pettigrew in the first round, or maybe Cornelius Ingram out of Florida in the fourth (if he‘s still there, which is a possibility), while grabbing a guy like “Beanie” Wells or LeSean McCoy with our other first round pick.

This way we have veteran guys who can fill in immediately for a couple years, while grooming the younger talent.

This would be a huge deal to go down for the Eagles since they have a problem with parting ways with draft picks, but they may do it if they don’t feel their rookies would be able to contribute right away."


What do you think? Would either of these deals be a good idea?  If we traded LJ for a third-round pick and a veteran, who would you want?
