Well it’s about time the Eagles rid themselves of Reggie Brown. This evening it was announced the Birds moved the underacheiving wideout to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 6th round pick in next year’s draft.
A lot of people always credit Andy Reid and his staff for identifying good young talent and locking them up to long-term deals early so that when those players are in their prime, they are paid well under market value (See Brown, Sheldon) for what they provide. Well in Reggie Brown’s case the Eagles could not have gotten it more wrong.
For whatever reason the 2nd round pick out of Georgia just never seemed to click with Donovan McNabb. He showed brief flashes of brilliance at the end of the 2007 season when Jeff Garcia led the Eagles on a cinderella run to the divisional round, but that was about it.
Remember when everyone lauded the AJ Feeley trade to the Dolphins which netted the Eagles a 2nd rounder for a 3rd string QB? Well they selected Brown with that pick, and now a couple years later they turned him into a pick near 200 in next years draft. What brilliant asset management…
