Dolphins at Eagles: What Philadelphia player would you steal?

New, comments

If you had the power to steal one player from the Philadelphia Eagles and put him on the Miami Dolphins roster, who would you take?

The Miami Dolphins are getting ready to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, their third straight road game. The Dolphins are also looking to prevent those three road games from becoming three losses, having lost the last two weeks to AFC East divisions rivals. As we start looking forward toward the game, we ask you which Eagles player would you steal off their roster and put on the Dolphins' roster?

I would probably grab 2013 fourth-overall pick Lane Johnson to add to the Dolphins. Part of me would rather grab Jason Peters, but between the two offensive tackles, Johnson is 25 years old, compared to Peters who is 32 years old. Johnson has more playing days in front of him, even if Peters is the better player right now. The Dolphins have struggled on the offensive line all year, plus are now without Ja'Wuan James at right tackle, so grabbing Johnson, who is playing right tackle and should be the Eagles' left tackle of the future, could make a lot of sense. He would slide into the right tackle position with James out, then could be the future of the left tackle position when Branden Albert retires.

Do you like the idea of grabbing Johnson? Do you have another choice? Let us know in the comments.
