Thought it was worth sharing. They have more pressing needs, but might be a value here. Philly doesn't seem to value him much in there current system.
Hell yes.

It would allow us to stay 4-3 base more often. Mychal is pretty similar to Eric. Either of them could shift to Will.

I agree. If they have the Cap space to absorb the salary there would be A LOT of value in giving up a 6th for him.

For a 6th or 7th I would do it in a heartbeat. That would be one loaded LB core

I'm more concerned about the salary aspect than the pick. I think it's a lot to pay a guy who will be on the field 1/3rd of the time. He'd add a level of aggressiveness due to his pass rush ability but I think the cash is better served elsewhere.

Fair enough. We'll know a lot more about that in a few weeks depending on Peterson, Patterson, Bradford extension, Greenway, Floyd, etc.
They could certainly make some room for him, but it depends on priorities I suppose.

I will say, the combined salary savings from Greenwaay retiring and cutting Lamur would pay for his salary, but the same money could also go to a low end FA guard, or keeping munnerlyn. Its more tempting if they would make the trade straight up for a guy like Lamur.
