Look, this is simple. If we want to get to the playoffs, which I'm convinced the front office wants, since we traded for McNabb, we need to shore up the weaknesses of the team. Which one, you ask? The main one, that's plagued us for so many years its ridiculous. In a way, its a double victory if we...
trade for Asante Samuels. Not only will we help to fix our defense's achilles heel, but we will have helped to weaken the Eagles' pass defense. Sure, they could use the pick on a CB in the draft to replace Samuels, but there's no guarantee he'd be as good as Asante is. This could allow us to finally swap either Winfield or Griffin to Safety to really give us some added juice to the position.
If it's Griffin, who I think it should be, it'll help out with his recovery from knee surgery. Then we can pair up Samuels with Cook, who is making an impression in camp after using last season's disappointment for motivation, as starters, and swap Winfield in to the nickle role, which is what we were doing last year anyway. They seemed to like him at that spot.
Alternatively, trade for Mays. He was a 2nd rounder, they'll want something cheap for him. Maybe a 5th. He's a physical specimen at S if nothing else, and his technique can't be much worse than Johnson's.
