Today’s question comes from Ken by way of email:

We all assume that the Jameis Winston will be drafted by the Bucs, and that the Eagles may be in the mix for Marcus Mariota, particularly if he starts to slip.  But what if the opposite happens?  What if the Bucs select Mariota?  Do you think the Eagles would have any interest in Winston, even if starts falling?

Today’s question comes via email from reader Aadil:

Sheil and Tim – Do you think if the Mariota-Chargers trade doesn’t work out, there is room for the Eagles to trade Bradford (and maybe the insurance picks from St. Louis if he doesn’t play much) for Rivers?

Would you do it if you were the Eagles? Chargers?

There’s been a lot of speculation in recent days about how the Philip Rivers rumors could affect the Eagles, so let’s tackle them all at once. Read more »
