Eagles deal DT Bunkley, re-sign LB Jordan

UPDATE: Bunk refused to go to the Browns so he was instead dealt to the Broncos for a conditional pick.

With the signing of Cullen Jenkins, the writing was on the wall for former starting DT Brodrick Bunkley. The Eagles moved quickly to deal Bunkley, shipping him to the Browns for a 5th round pick in 2012. The move re-unites Bunk with the man that drafted him, Tom Heckert, and gives the Eagles a whopping 11 picks already in the 2012 draft.

In other Eagles moves, the Birds re-signed Akeem Jordan. Jordan has experience at all three linebacker positions so he could challenge the man currently penciled in as the starting middle linebacker, rookie Casey Matthews. I still hope the Eagles further upgrade their linebackers but they might be content with a mediocre group given the strength of the rest of the defense.
