Brodrick Bunkley gets traded again

Browns G.M. Tom Heckert was asked Monday where defensive tackle Brodick Bunkley was, since he wasn’t in Brown camp.  We now know where he’s headed: Denver.

Two days after Bunkley was officially traded to the Browns, he was traded again. By the Eagles. Again.

The Eagles will get an undisclosed 2013 draft pick from Denver.  They were set to get a 2012 fifth-round pick from Cleveland.

It’s odd because the original move was official, moving over the league’s transaction wire.  Apparently it was canceled after Bunkley’s no show, and now the Eagles just dumped Bunkley for anything they could.

  1. another failed early round pick on a DT that the eagles screwed up.. Patterson.. Laws.. etc.. Eagles disapoint me every draft day.. (ok besides the recent WRs) .. sure wish we took Tamba Hali instead

  2. Bummer. I think. I thought he was going to be a solid pickup for the Browns. Guess it’s not in the cards. Hopefully Phil Taylor signs and gets into camp in the next day or two. Switching to a 4-3 is going to be hard enough without losing interior linemen to failed trades and rookie holdouts!

    I would laugh if it’s a 5th rounder or higher. That’s what than the skins got for Fat Albert.

    Along with that ridiculously fat contract….

  4. That stinks! Shouldn’t the Browns get some kind of compensation for that?

    why should the browns get compensation? they didn’t lose anything. eagles are the ones losing out here by getting a lesser pick.

    How do you know that they are getting a lesser pick? It says “the eagles get an undisclosed draft pick in 2013”. That could be anything from a 1st round pick (unlikely) to a 7th round.

  6. Denver gets some help at DT. I think Fox will make Buckley live up to some of his potential. Denver lucks out big time.

  7. Good job Eagles, you got him to a team that will be worse than the Browns. Later Double B, you were a huge waste of a pick.

    Guess Greenway, Ryans or Williams would have been better options.

  8. If you go by the Cleveland media all the anti-Bunkley comments have jumped the gun. They are saying he did report to the Browns on Saturday and Cleveland was the one to cancel the trade after he didn’t pass their physical.

  9. Broderick Bunkley reported to the Browns on Saturday, but the team had some medical concerns, a source said. He was then traded to Denver.

  10. Bunkley did make it to Cleveland but he did not pass a medical exam and was sent packing. The Browns organization is a little PO’d by the whole thing as they are blaming Philly for jumping the gun on the trade announcement.

    So now players of Bunkley’s caliber can choose where they want to get traded to? This guy should get released and not signed by anyone.

    Ordinarily I would agree with you. But I am a Broncos fan and we desperately need DTs. So….sorry, Cleveland.
