Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles just don't seem to want to stop and boy is it making things interesting around here. According to Ian Rapoport, the Eagles have linebacker Mychal Kendricks and defensive back Brandon Boykin on the trading block.

It is being speculated that the Eagles are seeking a second round pick in exchange for Mychal Kendricks. Teams are laughing at that compensation, but it might be a bit of a ploy to get teams to offer higher picks than they would have normally. It is not known yet at this time what the Eagles are asking in exchange for Brandon Boykin, but I'd imagine that it can't be far off.

While the Ravens don't have a ton of need for an inside linebacker like Kendricks, the Ravens have been interested in adding another defensive back to a relatively thin secondary. After having a tough time last season with injuries to cornerbacks, the Ravens have made it no secret that they plan on attacking that portion of their roster this offseason. Baltimore has made moves in extending Jimmy Smith and knocking down the cap number of Lardarius Webb so far, but the Ravens have been rumored to be looking early in the draft at addressing their depth with a corner.

Boykin was not a starter with Philadelphia, but did do good things as a reserve and extended package player for the Eagles. If Boykin could be had for a decent price (a fourth rounder for instance), don't doubt that Ozzie Newsome would be interested in adding the Eagle to the Ravens' roster.
