Back in August of last year, we mentioned [and were the only ones to mention] that the NFL Draft could be coming to Philadelphia for two straight years. Eagles insider Dave Spadaro mentioned it on FOX 29, and we posted it here.
That was before the Sam Bradford trade.
Friday night, CSN’s John Clark said that he spoke with Ron Jaworski, who spoke with the NFL and the city of Philadelphia [I imagine Jaws looking up at the sky and talking to himself], and said there’s a real good chance the NFL will bring the draft back to Philly next year.

I don’t think there’s any reason why the NFL shouldn’t bring the draft back here next year. The atmosphere’s been amazing the entire week. There have also been rumors of the draft heading to Dallas next year.
But screw that. Keep it in Philly.
