Three first round picks, Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy for the 1st pick?

We have been hearing crazy rumors for years now, but an ESPN analyst reported he heard a rumor that would send three first rounders, Shady McCoy and Nick Foles to Tampa Bay for the first overall pick.

Until my phone started ringing Friday. Two different members of the Philadelphia media called me to say they were hearing rumblings that a trade was imminent. These are trusted media members and the content of both calls contained the same details. 

The Eagles were about to trade quarterback Nick Foles, running back LeSean McCoy and three first-round draft picks to the Bucs for the No. 1 pick in the draft. It sounded believable. 

So I called someone within the Tampa Bay organization that would know if something was cooking. He said the rumor was untrue. Meantime, my friends in the Philadelphia media poked around some more with their Eagles’ sources. They got the same response I did. No trade was imminent and no one would say if there even have been any talks between the two teams. 

While that trade would be great for the Buccaneers, it would be an insane move. I don’t know if Chip Kelly is that crazy.
