 The Eagles and the Ryan Grigson led Colts have completed their second trade. After trading Winston Justice to Indianapolis in March, the Eagles sent Linebackers Greg Lloyd and Moise Fokou to the Colts for Cornerback Kevin Thomas and a conditional 7th round pick in the 2013 draft.

Lloyd and Fokou went from fighting to stay on the Eagles depth chart to a team with gaping holes at Linebacker.

Drafted in the 7th round out of Connecticut, Lloyd spent his rookie season on the practice squad.Fokou, also a 7th round pick from Maryland started 22 games in his time in Philadelphia. He had 112 tackles, one sack, and one forced fumble.

 Thomas was Second Team All Pac-10 in his Senior season at USC, and was drafted in the 3rd round in the 2010 draft. However, Thomas never suited up in his rookie season for the Colts due to a knee injury. He started 5 games in 2011, and recorded 33 tackles.
