    Philadelphia Eagles

    PHILADELPHIA (AP)—The Freak show is over in Philadelphia.
    After four mostly disappointing and injury-plagued seasons where he only showed glimpses of his feared pass rushing ability, the Eagles released defensive end Jevon Kearse on Thursday.
    Kearse was in the middle of a $66 million, eight-year deal signed in 2004 that made him at the time the highest-paid defensive end in NFL history.
    Kearse was a monster. Sucks he got hurt so much.

    Well... so subtract Kearse, then add Asante Samuel.

    PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Asante Samuel has such good hands and terrific instincts that the All-Pro cornerback rarely drops the ball, one reason why he has 16 interceptions the last two years.
    The Eagles instincts were on the ball, too, that Samuel was the kind of playmaker they desperately needed to strengthen a defense that recorded an NFL-worst 19 takeaways in 2007.
    Philadelphia got its first one of 2008, signing the free-agent cornerback to a six-year contract on Friday and ending Samuel’s five-year stint in New England.

    Yeah it sucks, I knew this could come, but deep down I was hoping we would re-sign him, this loss hurts.

    So signing Samuel.... good move. Cutting Kearse, I can understand it because of his injury situation, although you know wherever he signs next he'll play all 16 games and be the Freak that he once was. Signing Chris Clemons, eh.... Cutting Takeo Spikes now....

    PHILADELPHIA (AP)—The Philadelphia Eagles released two-time Pro Bowl linebacker Takeo Spikes on Thursday.
    The 10-year veteran played one season in Philadelphia and finished second on the team with 139 tackles. Spikes missed the final two games last season after having shoulder surgery.
    Spikes is the second high-profile player cut by the Eagles in a week. Defensive end Jevon Kearse was let go last Thursday after playing four seasons in Philadelphia.
    The Eagles signed All-Pro cornerback Asante Samuel and defensive end Chris Clemons in the first two days of the NFL’s free-agency period.
    I don't get this move.

    I would not mind seeing the Pats sign Spikes.

    Larry Fitzgerald: Courted by Eagles

    Update: The Eagles have reportedly made a trade offer for Arizona’s Larry Fitzgerald, Delawareonline.com reports.

    Recommendation:
    The Eagles have reportedly offered Lito Sheppard and Reggie Brown with hopes of forcing the Cardinals to deal Fitzgerald if they can’t reach an agreement to restructure his contract. Cardinals general manager Rod Graves has adamantly stated that Fitzgerald will remain with the Cardinals.

    For this moment, let's say the Eagles can pull this off. HUGE DEAL FOR THE EAGLES. Later Lito. And if any team is willing to take Reggie Brown or any of the butt receivers that Philly has to offer, more power to them.

    Now... I know Fitzgerald's contract is kinda messy for Arizona right now. It is actually holding them back from acquiring a full roster. However, they are in the works of reconstructing the contract and all word is that they will get that done. Not even the slightest peep that they won't and that they'll be forced to move Fitz. Honestly, I would be shocked 10000% if Fitz moves. I can see Arizona moving Anquan Boldin before they move Fitz.

    Look like Fitzgerald has signed a new 4 year deal worth $40M with the Cards, say's he also has a no-trade clause in the deal.

    Update on Kevin Kolb.

He's competing right now. That No. 2 spot allows him to get a few more reps than what A.J. might get in the third spot." Feeley played in three games last season, throwing three interceptions, the same number McNabb had in 14 games played.
    Should be expected. If McNabb is still in town, McNabb has the job to lose. Not surprised Kolb is over Feeley at all.

    I think this is McNabb's last year. If he doesn't take them to the playoffs, he's done and they will make room for Kolb.

    No one is convinced that he will even be here to start this season just yet. I was flicking through radio stations and stopped at 610 and they were talking about how there is still trade talks/rumors with Chicago which is why the Rex Grossman/Kyle Orton thing was actually not a big deal. The Baltimore angle is shot with the Ravens taking Flacco.

    Side note on Flacco: I was just in Baltimore. They already have Flacco jerseys selling for $79.95-$99.95. They also have silly posters and plaques saying Flacco's Our Saviour selling for $9.95. Awesome... FU - Boller!

    As Kolb's job is coming closer and closer...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Donovan McNabb is sitting out the Philadelphia Eagles’ passing camp Tuesday with shoulder tendinitis.
    The five-time Pro Bowl quarterback likely will miss the rest of the week’s organized team activities. Kevin Kolb, a second-round pick last season, worked with the first-team offense in McNabb’s absence.
    McNabb hasn’t played an injury-free season since leading the Eagles to the Super Bowl in 2004. He missed the final seven games in 2005 with a sports hernia, sat out the last eight games, including playoffs, in 2006 with a torn knee ligament and missed two games last year with a sprained ankle and injured thumb.

    Booker seeing reps...

    Quote Originally Posted by PhiladelphiaEagles.com

The idea seems to be allowing Westbrook to get a little extra rest while not drastically changing the gameplan for head coach Andy Reid and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. "We're just trying to get more speed on the field." Westbrook said. "Lorenzo brings a big-play capability as well to the field. He's very fast, very shifty, has very good hands. We're just trying to put more playmakers on the field at the same time."
    I wouldn't get too excited because Westbrook is clearly the man, but if West gets hurt...Book can bring it.

    A little something on Westbrook.

    Quote Originally Posted by Philadelphia Inquirer

"When I signed my contract with the Eagles 2 1/2 years ago, they paid me for the level of play I was playing at the time," said Westbrook, who fired Fletcher Smith as his representative. "I'm not at that level no more. I'm at a higher level of play.... My numbers have steadily increased from that point until now. Now, I'm at the point where I'm one of the elite backs in the NFL, and I should be compensated that way." Westbrook cannot officially hire a new agent until Saturday, although a source indicated that he may hire All Pro Sports & Entertainment Inc., the group that includes agents Peter Schaffer and Lamont Smith.
    Now just wait a second here... Westbrook, unhappy... If this gets ugly, Booker may be the man. Oh wait....... Westbrook is one of the nice guys in the league. He'll work through the issues. I can understand his reasoning for more money. I still believe that a contract is a contract. If you want more, ask when its time to renew.

    You know the Eagles relationship with Rosenhaus. Not good for Lito.

    yeah i agree with living up to the terms, but you know that's not how business goes in sports. If anyone on that team should ask for a raise, it's Westbrook.

    Little more on Westbrook...

    The report also quoted Westbrook as saying he probably wouldn't hold out from training camp, but hadn't made up his mind.

    Camp opens Monday at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., when rookies and selected veterans are scheduled to report by 5 p.m. The rest of the team is scheduled to report by Thursday evening.
    I still firmly believe that Westbrook is one of those players that will do what is necessary for the team and let his agent work out monetary issues. I don't expect him to holdout. But if things get ugly... Lorenzo Booker is waiting in the wings!

    Don't expect much from Jackson this year. If your league counts return yards then maybe. Otherwise... I'd pass on him.

    Eagles WR Curtis to have sports hernia surgery

    PHILADELPHIA (TICKER) —Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Kevin Curtis will undergo sports hernia surgery and could be sidelined for an extended period, coach Andy Reid announced Wednesday.

    The full extent of the injury will not be clear until Curtis undergoes surgery Thursday, so no timetable was given for a possible return. But Reid said Curtis will be out “for a while.”

    Curtis was injured in last Thursday’s preseason game against the Carolina Panthers.
    “He tried to work through it but wasn’t able to function very well with it during practice, so we decided to go in this direction,” Reid said.

    Curtis becomes the third Eagle to have a sports hernia in the last few years.

    Quarterback Donovan McNabb had surgery during the 2005 season after trying
    to play through the injury. Tight end L.J. Smith had offseason surgery in the spring of 2007, but the injury lingered during the season after he suffered another injury to the area during training camp.

    The injury to Curtis further depletes an already shaky receiving corps which also is missing starter Reggie Brown due to a hamstring injury.

    Curtis was the Eagles’ top receiver last season, catching 77 passes for 1,110 yards and matching a career high with six touchdowns. He signed with the club as a free agent prior to last season.

    McNabb, who unsuccessfully lobbied for the club to add another playmaker at wide receiver during the offseason, will now be throwing to untested rookie DeSean Jackson and Hank Baskett and Greg Lewis - two marginal receivers - when the Eagles open their season at home against the St. Louis Rams on September 7.

    Despite Curtis’ injury, the stubborn Reid said the Eagles would not pursue a trade for a wide receiver.

    It would have seemed logical that the Arizona Cardinals could be a trading partner, since wide receiver Anquan Boldin is unhappy with his contract. The Eagles also have a player unhappy with his contract in two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Lito Sheppard.
    Now that would be interesting!!

    It would be interesting for Boldin to come to Philly... However, according to Andy Reid... they aren't looking to bring in another receiver. However, if they do... odds are good that Horn will be the guy.

    I would think Horn over Boldin too just because the Eagles don't like paying top dollar for WR. Owens is the last time they did, and look how that turned out.

    And it would make too much sense for the Eagles to trade their disgruntled pro bowl cornerback for a legit #1 receiver. A foursome of Boldin, Curtis (once healthy), Jackson and Brown would be nice along with Westbrook and LJ Smith but I'd be shocked if it happened.


    I agree they'll make a play at Horn instead.
