Quinn: The Eagles Should Trade For Drew Brees

The buzzards, (and Eagles) are circling.

I would say the Saints aren't dumb enough to trade away a once-in-a-lifetime QB, but I am a life-long Saints fan so I am familiar with their work!

Brees is most valuable to the Saints elsewhere.

Would there be some road blocks in brokering a deal? Sure. Brees’ monstrous contract would be a factor (sending Bradford to New Orleans would help) and multiple picks would likely be involved, but the cost would be well worth it.

With his quick release and ability to be consistently accurate on throws all over the field, Brees is the type of quarterback that would flourish in Kelly’s system. Brees would greatly improve the passing game and by extension, provide room for the running game. He’d provide leadership and not look like he’s about to have his lunch money taken (see: Bradford, Sam). The kicker—he’d reunite with Darren Sproles.

Chip Kelly doesn’t have enough time in the day to gush over Sproles and has admitted openly that they haven’t maximized his potential. Who better to do that than the quarterback who threw hundreds of passes to him in New Orleans?

The biggest issue in completing a blockbuster deal for the future Hall Of Fame QB, would be the difficulty in acquiring a starting quarterback mid-season. For most quarterbacks, it’s understandably hard to pickup the playbook and build chemistry in a brand new offense.

But we’re not talking about a normal quarterback. We’re talking about a nine-time Pro Bowler, a two-time NFC MVP, and a Super Bowl XLIV champion adjusting to a high-powered, user-friendly offense in an abysmal NFC East.

Worst case, the team flops this season and the Eagles work out a new deal with DREW FREAKIN’ BREES, who is a free agent after 2016. Best case, they’re an overnight Super Bowl contender.

Sean Payton is desperate enough and Kelley is crazy enough.

For two 1s I'd say

Nope! Nothing less than 2 firsts, a great OL coach and a good LB coach. That's my final offer.

Everyone wanting 2 1st round picks for Brees obviously have forgotten the Saints draft history!
