Now the question becomes, how much money is Bates going to want?
    Heís gonna want to be paid big money. Thatís part of the reason Iíd lean more towards the eagles not trading for bates, they donít usually like to give safety much money. That being said, maybe they like having Epps next to him that is still on his rookie contract. Also, cap is gonna explode next year so locking in a guy like bates now might give him a manageable safety contract in the new salary cap era starting next year.

    That's what I'm thinking...Getting him locked in for a long time would possibly be a steal.

    Regardless of what happens, I think thereís little to no movement until after the June 1st cuts start to happen.
