Patrick Peterson was almost a Philadelphia Eagles

Joe Banner the former Philadelphia Eagles president was speaking on ESPN NFL Insiders show, and he explained how the lockout prior to the 2011 draft prevented a trade that would have eventually made five-time Pro Bowl corner Patrick Peterson an Eagle.

“When we were in Philadelphia, we traded Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round draft pick,” Banner said, via CBS Philly. “The original trade was the fifth pick of the draft – which we were targeting Patrick Peterson for –- and the second round pick the next year. Because there was a lockout, we weren’t allowed to make trades leading into the draft or else Patrick Peterson would have been a Philadelphia Eagle.”

Eagles fans could you imagine Patrick Peterson in Philly?  Dang that would be a nice addition.
