Brandon Graham reportedly on Eagles' trade block

On Friday's edition of the "Around The League Podcast," Gregg Rosenthal compared the Philadelphia Eagles' Dion Jordan trade inquiry to a fantasy football owner wildly throwing out offers to see what sticks.

Overshadowed in the Eagles' pursuit of Jordan is the news that 2010 first-round pick Brandon Graham has fallen out of favor under the Chip Kelly regime.

The team's offer to the Dolphins reportedly was composed of Graham and a second-round draft pick.

Philadelphia Magazine's Tim McManus confirms the Eagles are "open to moving" Graham for the right price.

Originally drafted as a 4-3 defensive end, Graham is a poor fit for defensive coordinator Billy Davis' 3-4 defense.

Finally healthy after battling early-career injuries, Graham showed signs of life as a disruptive pass rusher in 2012 only to be relegated to 27 percent of the defensive snaps under Kelly and Davis last season.

If the Eagles are willing to package Graham with the No. 22 overall pick, the Jordan talks could be revisited. If not, the team would have to settle for a mid-to-late round draft pick in exchange for the walk-year player.

In the latest edition of the "Around The League Podcast", the guys discuss "Draft Day," then break down who got better (and who got worse) in the AFC East.
