Eagles website offers Rodgers-Cromartie jerseys

NFL Lockout Ends After Owners Request Denied By Judge Getty Images

Dozens of you have alerted us to something on the Eagles’ website that could be interpreted as indicating that a deal that would send quarterback Kevin Kolb to the Cardinals for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is done.

The Eagles are selling Rodgers-Cromartie jerseys on their website.

It’s not a front-page thing.  Instead, the name appears under the “Select a Player” option when purchasing an authentic jersey.

We’re skeptical on this one, for a couple of reasons.

First, we’ve seen this kind of thing before.  The folks who run the web operations usually don’t know what’s going on.  Our guess is that someone assumed, based on the rampant media reports, that Rodgers-Cromartie will be joining the team.

Second, it’s not as if the Eagles’ website generally conveys the impression that the right hand has an inkling as to what the left hand is doing.  The official roster, for example, still includes the team’s 2011 unrestricted free agents, even though the Eagles have said that none of them will be back.  Hell, even safety Quintin Mikell, who has agreed to terms with the Rams, still appears on the roster page.

So while the deal may still happen, the ability to purchase a Rodgers-Cromartie jersey probably doesn’t represent some advance plan by the front office to be ready for the crush (eye roll) of orders that would be placed for the item.

UPDATE:  And, of course, the Eagles already have removed the Rodgers-Cromartie jersey option.  Mikell remains on the official roster.

SECOND UPDATE:  The guy who runs CrossingBroad.com claims to have discovered it, and apparently wants credit.  So here it is.  All we know is that we got over 50 e-mails about it, and we’re in no position in the middle of the free-agency frenzy to figure out who spotted it first.  Or to care.

    Kenny Britt’s Facebook “hackers” must be running that website

    Saw that a while ago. Somebody has a sense of humor……or is in big trouble.

    Well if it was there earlier, its not there now.

    ….and in comes Woody Allen! dumping buckets of cash ala Daniel Snyder…

    MINE MINE MINE! :)

    Eagles front office then becomes sad panda…

    DRC plus a #1 sounds fair

  10. kidzaround says: Jul 27, 2011 1:21 PM

    The choice for R-C has already been removed…as of 12:21 CST.

    Hope that trade goes through so I can get a DRC jersey (Eagles fan living in AZ!)

    If this happens, who do we pick up with all that cap money?

  12. melonnhead says: Jul 27, 2011 1:22 PM

    Nice operation ya got there, Lurie.

  13. eaglesfan290 says: Jul 27, 2011 1:23 PM

    There was a message on Twiter about 30min ago saying there has been progress in trading Kolb, the deal is most likely done.

    I happen to know the guy who runs the Eagles website – this is not shocking.

  15. lebronshairline says: Jul 27, 2011 1:23 PM

    How is this news? After all, you can order any jersey with any name.

  16. laeaglefan says: Jul 27, 2011 1:23 PM

    The most shocking thing to me about that website was the fact that they’re selling those jerseys at a price of something like $274.99. Huh???????
    I guess they need the money in order to pay the players, but it sounds like a clear case of ripping off the fans.

  19. gdeli says: Jul 27, 2011 1:28 PM

    can’t they sell one rodgers and other cromartie? what a long ass name for a jersey but good player. ha

  20. cured76 says: Jul 27, 2011 1:28 PM

    This better not be the closest the Eagles get to landing a proper corner this offseason.

  21. upperdecker19 says: Jul 27, 2011 1:37 PM

    Somewhere, the guy who got canned for making comments about losing Dawkins a few years ago is rolling his eyes.

  22. goawayeverybody says: Jul 27, 2011 1:39 PM

    Only a team as inept as the Eagles could pull this off.

  23. phillychzstk2012 says: Jul 27, 2011 1:42 PM

    Trade should take place within 48 hours. The Eagles will save roughly 10 million + in cap space by taking DRC over signing a top FA CB, then Ray Edwards is the prize on friday.

  24. jakek2 says: Jul 27, 2011 1:53 PM

    DRC will be fish food for Nicks.

    You’re right, their product sales web designer is going to be the igniting force at the center of this franchise’s upcoming implosion.

    Not even a hint of an effort to site the person to discover it, Mike? That’s kind of weak. It was @mcnabborkolb, if anyone cares.

    how many times have we heard you cry about not getting credit? Especially when you were the little guy….. a little hypocritical if you ask me.

    Or maybe Im just imagining all the whining you still do about espn.
