BETHLEHEM, Pa. - The Eagles traded linebackers Moise Fokou and Greg Lloyd to the Colts for cornerback Kevin Thomas and a 2013 conditional seventh-round draft pick. Thomas was drafted in the third round in 2010 by Indianapolis. He missed all of 2010 with a knee injury. He started five of nine games he played for the Colts last season, recording 33 tackles and defending three passes. There were reports out of Indianapolis during the spring that the 6-foot, 192-pound Thomas could challenge for a starting spot in 2012.

There's been a merry-go-round at linebacker for the Eagles over the last few seasons, but the team made efforts this offseason to make it stop with the acquisitions of DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks. It might start spinning again on Sunday in Cleveland. Kendricks said Thursday after practice that the coaches had each of the Eagles' six linebackers practicing in various alignments in several packages on defense. "I would expect for all of us to be playing because that's what we're game-planning with," said Kendricks, who is expected to start at the strong side.

There wasn't much that went right for the Atlanta Falcons when they played the Eagles last season, but tight end Tony Gonzalez had a good day. Gonzalez had just three catches for 19 yards, but two of those receptions were for touchdowns. The previous year against the Eagles, he didn't get into the end zone but had eight catches for 72 yards while playing with backup quarterback Chris Redman. As the Eagles prepare to face the star tight end again Sunday, much of the burden of stopping him likely will fall to Jamar Chaney, the fastest of the Eagles linebackers and their most accomplished in pass coverage.

When the Eagles traded for DeMeco Ryans, the feeling of relief and excitement among fans was palpable. The team had picked up a name linebacker. Finally. But the big move doesn't necessarily mean the Eagles solved the linebacker problems that were so plain and painful to see last season. Ryans is a two-time Pro Bowler and renowned leader, but after an Achilles tear in 2010 he wasn't the same player in 2011. The Eagles are optimistic about his health and returning him to the 4-3 system in which he excelled, but even if he returns to form, the team might need insurance and definitely needs an upgrade at outside linebacker.

The news of Mike Kafka's signing a futures contract with the New England Patriots on Thursday makes this a good time to revisit the Eagles' 2010 draft class - and specifically the fourth round. That's when Kafka went. He was one of four fourth-round picks for the Eagles. A fourth-round pick in the NFL has value - but not significant value. There's rougly a 10 percent chance of finding a starter in that round. Of course, based on those odds, the Eagles had a realistic statistical chance of finding a starter in that round.

The Eagles' linebacker shuffle may be designed specifically for Sunday's opponent - the New York Giants - defensive coordinator Juan Castillo said. Rookie Casey Matthews , moved from middle linebacker to weak-side, isn't convinced. "They said that. I guess we will see how it turns out," Matthews said Thursday. "If you have success with it I'm sure it will stay. I'm going like it's permanent. " The moves, implemented first at practice on Wednesday, have Jamar Chaney replacing Matthews in the middle, Moise Fokou filling Chaney's spot at strong-side, and Matthews taking over for Fokou.

Here are some observations and ruminations about Sunday night's Eagles-Giants game:   EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - As questions have swirled about the Eagles' leadership, many eyes have turned to Cullen Jenkins. The defensive tackle is new to the team, having just signed this summer, but he is an eight-year veteran, a Super Bowl champion with the Packers last year, and a thoughtful pro. He seems to be embracing the role. When the Eagles rallied at midfield before the game, it was Jenkins in the middle of the huddle doing the talking.

Two weeks before the season opener, the Eagles shook up their starting lineup Sunday and promoted Akeem Jordan to first-team weakside linebacker in place of Brian Rolle, the latest move in the team's ongoing linebacker shuffle. Jordan, who has played five years with the Eagles, has started at least one game in each season in Philadelphia and has played all three linebacker spots. He did not know he was competing for the starting weakside spot until Sunday morning, when he was told that he is now a starter.
