Will Eagles up ante for Scheffler?

The Eagles asked the Broncos what it would take to get Tony Scheffler, and they said it would require a first-round pick. Philly apparently balked, but Scheffler is better than Brandon Pettigrew, especially if you want to win right now. So the question is will Philly cough up pick 21, or a 1st in 2010 to get him? 

I think they might pull the trigger when push comes to shove. If Pettigrew is off the board before pick 21, I think the chances of it happening are greater. Again they could still use 21 on a player like Knowshon Moreno and use their 1st in 2010 to get Scheffler.

The Broncos are the ones holding the cards in this deal, because their tight end is better than any tight end prospect in the draft (at least right now), which is why asking for a one isn’t outlandish.
