Sheldon Brown, Chris Gocong on the move?
You’ve got to hand it to the Philadelphia Eagles.
They know how to make headlines.
As the Donovan McNabb rumor mill continues to fire on all cylinders, a new report has surfaced regarding another high-profile Eagle.
According to Clark Judge of CBSSports.com, the Birds are close to sending cornerback Sheldon Brown and linebacker Chris Gocong to the Cleveland Browns for one of two packages:
1. A draft pick and a player OR
2. Two draft picks and a backup
Per Judge, the deal is contingent on Brown landing a new contract.
In 2004, Brown renegotiated his contract and landed an extension that lasts until 2012. But the veteran cornerback realized sometime last year that he was outplaying the deal and became disgruntled.
The 31-year-old has started every game except one for the Eagles since 2004, recording 16 interceptions and scoring three touchdowns during that span.
Gocong, on the other hand, has basically been deemed a bust by Eagles fans since losing his starting job last season to Moise Fokou. A third-round pick in 2006, Gocong has amassed just four sacks and zero interceptions in four years with the Eagles.
