As I speculated earlier, Moats is indeed going to be traded, according to John Murphy. I think they have to, because he is too similar to Brian Westbrook, and they need to find a bigger, stronger back to compliment Brian. I know Denver was interested in Moats before, and Shanahan loves to pile on rbs. Greenbay, and Buffalo both have a huge void at rb as well. I'm still guessing that this will be done on draft day.

Apr 17 John Murphy, of Yahoo! Sports, reports the Philadelphia Eagles are actively shopping RB Ryan Moats, according to a well-placed league source. The team will likely draft a bigger running back to use in the backup role, making Moats less likely to earn a spot on the active roster unless it would be for special teams purposes. A second source claims more than one team has already been contacted to gauge their initial interest, but the initial league source indicated the Eagles would likely receive a mid-round draft pick in the 2007 NFL Draft in exchange for Moats.
