Eagles trade with Browns for pick No. 2

And the fun continues.

The Philadelphia Eagles, today, have traded with the Cleveland Browns for the second overall pick in this year's draft. Philadelphia sent Cleveland a host of picks spanning the 2016, 2017, and 2018 drafts.

The specifics:

Cleveland receives Philadelphia's 2016 first-round pick (No. 8); their 2016 third- and fourth-round picks (Nos. 77 and 100, respectively); their 2017 first-round pick; and their 2018 second-round pick.

Philadelphia receives Cleveland's 2016 first-round pick (No. 2), and a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2017 draft.

The Eagles must be just as enamored with the consensus top two quarterbacks in this year's draft, Jared Goff and Carson Wentz, as are the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams haven't even declared which of the two they'll select with the first overall pick, yet the Eagles are apparently content with selecting whomever remains (assuming they are targeting a quarterback, which seems a safe bet). This, despite Philadelphia having already spent $22,000,000 guaranteed on Sam Bradford and $4,750,000 guaranteed on Chase Daniel in free agency this year.

The Browns now possess 6 of the top 100 picks in this year's draft, and 12 picks overall.
