DT Bunkley Traded; LB Jordan Re-Signed

The dominoes keep falling. Minutes after the Eagles announced the signing of defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins, the team announced they traded defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley to the Cleveland Browns for a 2012 fifth-round pick and re-signed linebacker Akeem Jordan.

Bunkley, the team's first-round pick in 2006, was replaced in the starting lineup by Antonio Dixon mid-way through the 2010 season. Left now at defensive tackle for the Eagles, in addition to Jenkins, are Dixon, Mike Patterson and Trevor Laws, among others.

Jordan, meanwhile, comes back to Philadelphia, where he has played his entire career since joining the team as an undrafted free agent out of James Madison in 2007. Jordan can play all three linebacker positions and is a valued special teams player.

The Eagles now have 11 picks in the 2012 draft. In addition to their own picks in the first six rounds, they own the rights to the Cardinals' second-round pick, the Buccaneers' fourth-round pick, the Browns' fifth-round pick, the Patriots' sixth-round pick and the Broncos' sixth-round pick.
