Report: Browns Unlikely To Trade No. 4 Overall Draft Pick To Eagles

Monday April 16th, 2012

There was a rumor floating around this weekend that the Philadelphia Eagles wanted to trade up in the NFL draft, prying the No. 4 pick away from the Cleveland Browns via trade, but the Eagles are denying it, according to Comcast SportsNet Philly.

Citing "a high-level team source," CSN reports the proposed trade was “just another draft rumor,” and there’s little chance the Eagles will move up.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer originally reported the rumor, revealing Friday that the Eagles were one of four teams speaking to the Browns about the pick. CSN's source says the two sides have spoken several times, but there's no scenario that would have the Eagles move up to No. 4.

The Eagles currently own the No. 15 overall pick, plus Nos. 46 and 51 in the second round.
