Eagles Wake-Up Call: Foles Unfazed By Kaepernick Deal

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys

Nick Foles had to know the question was coming.

After finishing up a conversation with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie at the end of Monday’s practice, Foles made his way to the podium to meet with reporters.


What went through your mind when you saw the Colin Kaepernick deal?

"Nothing," Foles said. "I was just happy for him. He’s played really well. I followed him in college when he was at Nevada, and I thought he had a great college career, so I was excited to see him be able to provide for his family and do great things with it. So I was happy in that aspect."

Kaepernick signed a new deal with the 49ers last week. Initially, it seemed like a monstrous sum: $126 million and $61 million guaranteed. But as details emerged, Kaepernick's deal actually proved to be team-friendly. He gets about $13 million guaranteed, and the team can get out of the deal after one season.

Foles, meanwhile, is up for an extension after the 2014 season. He continues to insist that he's not worried about cashing in.

"Like I’ve said before, there’s been so many times where careers are cut short, so I’m really just trying to make the most of it," Foles said. "And if I’m fortunate enough to get to that down the road, then I’ll be thankful. But I’m really just thankful right now with what I’m doing."

It's unlikely that Chip Kelly or anyone else in the organization is worried about the contract being a distraction for Foles. They saw all they needed to see about Foles' mental makeup when he rebounded from last year's Cowboys game with one of the more impressive statistical runs in NFL history.

Foles knows he can earn big money with a strong 2014 performance, but he also knows he still has plenty to prove.

"I think you start worrying about numbers and you stop worrying about what you’re doing, that’s where you mess up because none of that really matters," he said. "I’m happy for those guys if they’re doing well. But my most important thing is being successful with my teammates. All that business stuff, all that other stuff will take care of itself down the road.

"But the most important thing is you get a contract like that because you’ve played well and you’ve shown that you can be that guy for the franchise, whereas I have to continue to prove that each and every day. I have a lot of guys on this team that look to me to go out here and work hard. When I’m playing out there, there’s no dollar sign on me when I’m throwing the ball. I’ve gotta throw the ball because I’ve grown up playing this game, grown up being a quarterback. So I have to do it to the best of my ability, and at the end of the day, we’ll see what happens."

WHAT YOU MISSED

First-round pick Marcus Smith signed his rookie deal Monday.

Here's yesterday's running diary of Eagles practice observations.

Lane Johnson and Jason Kelce say the Eagles' dinner bill of more than $17,000 was no big deal.

An All-22 look at the Eagles' mesh concept, one of Kelly's favorite calls against man coverage.

Are other teams going to copy the Eagles?

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

DeSean Jackson is accusing NFLPA director DeMaurice Smith of bias towards Drew Rosenhaus. From Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports:

Though NFLPA regulations prohibit agents from giving players money or other things of value in order to convince them to sign with them or keep them as clients, Jackson says Rosenhaus paid the wide receiver $50,000 cash in a Louis Vuitton travel bag during an exchange made in a gas station parking lot and more for those very purposes. Rosenhaus also agreed to give Jackson a $90,000 check and a $200,000 interest-free loan. Over time, Jackson says Rosenhaus provided him and his family with an additional $143,088 in order to keep him as a client.

Zach Berman of the Inquirer caught up with Eagles nose tackle Bennie Logan:

"Most people, when they picture a nose tackle, they picture a 330-plus guy, just clogging up the middle," Logan said. "But the way we play our defense, you've got to be able to run. And I don't feel I'd be able to run or do the things our coaches, in our scheme, require us to do. That's why I'm not 330, or put on that much weight."

    Foles is so nice it seems unreal. Hope I’m wrong but it could be a smoke screen

    • Bullwinkle

      There are people as nice as Foles seems to be. I’ve met some; mostly in the military service, not quite as much in the private sector. I don’t think Foles is a fake. Roger Staubach was not a fake either.

      • Maggie

        Staubach was not fake, but he has said himself, that he is very competitive. Even now. He still wants to win everything. Or Merlin Olsen. Nicest guy you would ever want to meet, but a killer on the field. Maybe some of that kind of instinct could show up at contract time. ;~)

    • Dominik

      I get that. Same for me. If I see Johnny Manziel, I think: get your head straight, boy. When I see Stafford, I think: you have all the arm talent in the world, now start work your butt off to improve your mechanics, you lazy idiot. When I see a guy like Foles, I think: his attitude is too good to be true.

      You may think I’m a sceptical guy and what should I say? It’s true, I guess.

      • Always Hopeful

        He might be the combination of just enough talent and self-awareness to know that he has to grind to be effective. I don’t think he’s going to lose that perspective.

    • cliff henny

      think he’s uber-religious, that’s not my thing, but whatever gets you thru the day. also, he does live and breathe football, so it could be a case of ‘football specific’ but get him on another topic and you get a whole different guy. i have a parent like this, crazy religious, you’d think she knew Jesus personally, but holy smokes get her started on a specific topic (not trying to get political here) and the wheels come off. think he is genuine if these sound bites, but also very practiced.

      • Broadcasting Wisdom

        Not to get “uber-religious” on you, but maybe your parent does know Jesus personally?

        As for Foles, only in cynical Philly would people question whether he is really this ideal of a human being. Anywhere else they’d be counting their blessings that they managed to get one of the few humble, hard working, all-about-the-team quarterbacks at such a young age, who just so happens to be an elite talent as well. Enjoy it!

        • cliff henny

          maybe, but he should have picked someone else, that topic she is just awful.
          .
          everywhere people are cynical. there’s too many examples of people being too good to believe only to find the skeletons. guy plays football, agree, let’s just enjoy that aspect of his personality and get Lombardi in Philly

    • Maggie

      A smoke screen for ???

  • Addicted2MAmula

    All we needed was a franchise QB, smarter couch and a good enough defense. Which I believe we have! #FlyEaglesFly

    • Chris

      I usually feel pretty smart from my couch too, haha

      • Addicted2MAmula

        bahahahaha thanks

    • Eagles1018

      I WISH I had a smarter couch. One that could get my beer while I’m watching the game. I’d never go to the bar again!

      • Chris

        I smell a million dollar idea

  • anon

    I wouldn’t be phased by that deal either, i’d have my eye on andrew luck / RW money.

    • NickS1

      Exactly, the only QBs that should be concentrated on that deal are running QBs, so Scam and RGIII come to mind first. Although, as former top 2 picks, I tend to think that they get a little better treatment than Kaep.

      • anon

        Foles does run a lot. Even if you slide that acl tear is just waiting to happen, see Hoyer / locker / Bradford.

        • NickS1

          I mean I can’t refute that, but I think you get my point. We’re not talking about a one or two (if lucky) read and then run kind of QB. Not something I would say FOles relies on, I guess is the point.

          • anon

            Agree but I do think it’s part of the scheme I guess is my point. Wonder if you still get dinged for injury risk if that’s part of the scheme you’re in, I doubt Foles thought he would ever have to run as much as he does.

      • travis papa

        Kaepernick deal is structured this way only bc the incident in Florida made the organization nervous. If he plays well and avoids stupid situations he will make most of the money. Cam and RG3 would be lucky to get similar dollar amounts I expect they will with more really guaranteed bc they are bigger faces of their franchises. RW and Luck should expect slightly larger deals bc of their levels of success. Not that kaepernick hasn’t been successful but he’s had the one incident. Those guys are squeaky clean except RW is getting a big head and a little obnoxious.

        • NickS1

          It’s structured that way because he’s an injury liability because of his style, which is why he has to take out an insurance policy with his after-tax dollars that pays $20mil to the 9ers in the event of injury. The incident has little bearing on it, if any.

          • travis papa

            Considering he’s missed a total of 0 gms ever to injury and hasn’t been on an injury report that makes a lot of sense. You can get insurance for any particular scenario you want not just injury or death. I’m sure there is Hernandez riders in the policy for total protection.

          • NickS1

            The games he has or hasn’t missed has zero bearing on the style of play influencing the 49ers. Which is why 4 years of the deal are “injury guarantees” and allow the 49ers an out after each of the next 4 seasons. Not sure why you’re arguing this when it’s pretty blatant. Even the insurance policy is to be taken out to protect the 9ers against a “career-threatening injury”. Here’s the contract: http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/san-francisco-49ers/colin-kaepernick/ Good talk.

          • travis papa

            I was never arguing just discussing. Last thing I’ll say is it has to be injury guaranteed or it would all be fully guaranteed and change the structure of the contract and their ability to get out from underneath it at any time in case something, anything goes wrong that they don’t like in the next 4yrs

          • NickS1

            My misinterpretation of the tone of your comment. Sorry. I should certainly add that since he’s not a well-developed passer (at least in my opinion and the opinion of many from what I’ve read), some of the “injury guarantee” could be to also protect them from threat of him not developing as a passer. Allows them the ability to cut ties for either reason.

          • travis papa

            I agree and that’s what i was getting at something, anything going wrong and having flexibility to get out from underneath the contract at anytime like a series of 1 yr deals in case harbaugh is no longer the coach in 2yrs or something along those lines

  • Addicted2MAmula

    I understand that Foles was the better QB last year but damn is he the only QB that’s getting asked about his contract? And when will they add “Foles” to the auto correction lol

  • cliff henny

    first, he knows he’s getting paid, it’s just by whom and how much. when the Matt Flynn’s and Schaub’s orCarson Palmer’s of the world are getting 7-12m over and over, there’s just too many qb desperate teams. Second, he’s in Kelly’s offense, he knows he’ll have top teir stats, so someone somewhere will bite. let’s not act like it’s 700k or 126m, no inbetween for the guy. Oakland has check for 3 yrs 40m written, just waiting for him. that said, sure Kelly, Howie and Lurie cant wait to give him a Kaep contract. nothing harder in NFL than finding a QB that’s truly worth 18-20m. lot of teams wanna have that guy (cough Det, Dal, Rams, Chi, Atl) but few teams have it.

    • NickS1

      That trio can’t wait to OFFER that contract. Can’t see Foles’ agent(s) taking it with that language, though. He’s not a “running” QB, and I bet his agents argue that point until they’re blue in the face to get at least the first 2 or 3 years guaranteed. No way Foles gets less than $20 guaranteed. Could be wrong, but I just don’t see it.

      • cliff henny

        got to remember, teams can drag Kaep and Foles Wilson Luck out for 3 yrs, play 4th yrs for pennies, then use franchise and transition tags, while getting no guaranteed money, and they all want that guaranteed money. that 1st contract teams have a ton of leverage. it’s when the 2nd comes due, if SF shoehorned Kaep into contract and he quickly outplays it, gets disgruntled, etc, how much he wants to go ‘Romo’ on them. but on your point, i do agree Eagles will give Foles probably slightly less money per year, little more guaranteed but also a ton less hoops to jump thru. think Kaeps going to quickly tire of that contract.

        • NickS1

          I’m aware of the leverage, but I think that leverage is more applicable and holds more weight in most other situations. In a Kaep situation, I think it held more weight given his style of play and what seemed to be he and his camp’s desire to get paid now. His agents probably pushed given his style of play, too (they need paid).

          Not sure how much that leverage affects Foles because he’s never going to be hurting for money. I think that’s what people try to get at when people point to his family’s money, not that he’s some “aw shucks, it’s just money” kind of dude, but he’s a candidate for the Flacco method of contracts. Dude’s never going to be broke, so that 4th yr leverage may hold a little less value for our FO in that Foles can play out the 4th year, ball out again, and prove again what he’s worth and totally flip the leverage. He knows he’s financially secured regardless of what happens. Which works for the Eagles for that 4th year, but they’ll lose all leverage if he successfully Flaccos them. Not saying he will, but if I had to pick a guy to do it, FOles very well might be that guy.

          • cliff henny

            sure, but Eagles also have different leverage, Kelly was 4/4 at Oregon and 2/2 in Philly, think FO is scared to use threat of going 3/3? Harabaugh has never made any qb and that team is all-in for 2 more yrs, cant start over at qb now. also, think Kaep just wanted to see 126m, he was quoted as saying he wanted big money, and was willing to ignore some hot air numbers to get it. think Foles will take less (126m, but it’s not 126m so is he taking less really?) but in more straight forward numbers. Also, agree think Eagles will try to wrap him up longer, see Maclin, and longer term means more security for Foles, means he gives up something, money. not terribly worried, between Howie’s contract writing ability, Lurie’s loyalty and Foles being such a team guy, think it’ll go smoothly.
            .
            not terribly familiar with Flacco. i thought Ravens offered him something, but due to Vets, they couldnt really pony up like they needed to. looked pretty smart on Ozzie’s part till Flacco channeled his inner Joe Montana during playoffs. then to pay him Balt had to perge sal cap.

          • Dominik

            Roseman will be graded from Baalkes achievment, though. To give your Franchise QB good money, but in a not-so-much-totally-committed kind of way, is a road other teams sure want to go, also.

            Personally, I don’t like these huge QB contracts in the first place, but it’s the reality, so I have to life with it. If you hand out these big contracts, you better make sure not to be as committed as the Jets were with Sanchez or the Cowboys are with Romo. If Foles plays like Dalton in a few years from now and gets paid 18m/year, the franchise is in trouble because we “lost” our Franchise QB, but we’d be totally screwed if we can’t get rid of the guy without huge dead money.

            http://nflphilosophy.com/qb-purgatory/

            The guy nailed it. Average QB play for elite money is the best bet to go 3-13. Just look at the Falcons last year.

          • anon

            I thought Matty ice was better than he was last year. Surprising luck could do as much as he did with barely 2 targets.

          • Dominik

            I guess the “experts” were right on the money with Luck. He’s a QB I would hand the checkbook over. Despite his INTs. He passes the eye test.

            Def. better than RGIII. Drafting him at 1 and leaving Luck for the Skins would have changed the football world – not for the better, if you’re an Eagles or Colts fan – and would have been as big a fail as letting Michael Jordan slip.

          • NickS1

            They offered him a deal for what he’s actually worth and he felt he was worth more, went and shat the bed all season, then, as you so eloquently noted, channeled the inner Montana. Got paid.

            As far as Foles, I’m just trying to illustrate that the leverage of the 4th year may not be as weighty as it is with others. Kelly has been good, sure, but if he’s that good, Barkley would be starting next year or in 2015, Sanchez will be developed into a legit QB and traded, and Kinne would be a legit trade piece or backup. So, I don’t buy that as actual leverage. It’s a nice thing for the resume, but that’s about it. Plus, Howie’s not trying to trade the farm for Mariotta or Winston when we’re sitting in the mid 20s next year.

            It’ll be an interesting negotiation to watch unfold. Ultimately it probably goes smoothly because of the two sides seeming to be very amicable. I just have a very hard time seeing FOles’ agents letting him take a Kaep like deal. I think you’re right one with a little less inflated dollars and more guarantees. 7/119/40ish is what I’d tend to think. Just spitballin’ numbers there, though.

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Lol… You know that skit that Disney runs after the SB? The one where they ask where they’re going now that they’ve won the SB? Yeah, Flacco’s response could have easily been flipped from “I’m going to Disney” to “I’m going to get paid!”.

      • Tom W

        Foles actually was asked to run a lot last year and I highly highly doubt any team would use that argument about a running qb …. Other than Vick, running and passing qbs get hurt just as much and more so withing the pocket. I don’t think the running qb argument had anything to do w kaps deal …. It was team friendly like the new cba wanted bc he could get pennies the fourth yr and no guaranteed money for two more yrs. plus kap told his agent he wanted a deal where niners could still sign good players. Finally foles family may have money but nobody is silly enough or rich enough to not think an extra 15 mil a year vs 700k isn’t a great idea where one injury could destroy a career and big payday. I expect something very close to kaps deal

        • NickS1

          I’m not talking about strictly numbers with Foles’ potential deal. You really think that Foles’ deal will include options to cut him before guaranteeing a year’s salary for the first 2-3 years? I don’t. No way in hell. Has everything to do with the running QB. Which is why there’s an insurance clause that Kaep has to pay for, payable to the 9ers, if he’s injured. Also, that deal gets them flexibility this year. That’s about it. He’s double digit millions after this year. Doesn’t allow much flexibility next year when he’s 17mil cap hit. Overall numbers might be close to Kaep’s deal, not as much on the structuring side of things. Won’t see Foles being able to be cut for less than 10mil dead money after year one of the deal.

  • NickS1

    Not sure what to make of the Rosenhaus/Jaccson situation. Seems like Jaccson got $143k in cash, with an agreement for, but never receiving, an additional $290k in traceable money. Seems like Jaccson (shockingly) was outsmarted by Rosenhaus, who made promises he never had to keep, and legally couldn’t/shouldn’t, and the only transactions were the kind with no receipts as proof…. cash. Rosenhaus may be a scumbag, but Jaccson’s the kind of idiot agents love.

    • Kev_H

      Everyone’s always got it in for Jaccpot. Poor guy can’t catch a break.

      • NickS1

        I’d say he caught a nice break of $16mil guaranteed. Wouldn’t you agree?

        • anon

          You don’t think he earned that. He’s the best at what he does.

          On drew, Wiley agent outsmarts 20 year old poor kid, surprise surprise. Not all these kids grow up with blue chip upbringings, can’t blame him for getting taken. You handed me that kind of money when I was that age I’d have squandered it too, especially if I don’t have anyone to teach me anything better.

          • NickS1

            But only an idiot thinks he’s going to be able to hold that against his agent down the road.

            Earned it? He earned most of it, but the Redskins bid against themselves to get him a few extra dollars. Best at what he does? I’m sure we’ve hashed this out before, so agree to disagree and let’s move on.

          • anon

            You don’t think he’s the best speed reciever / deep threat in the league? Not the best wr, goes without saying.

            Skins overpaid bc there was no market but I think $8m is probably the right no. For him. Snyder also needed some good publicity.

          • NickS1

            I don’t. Top 5 at it, sure. C. Johnson, Green, J. Jones,even A. Johnson all have a case in my opinion. I’m curious what he does in another system since I don’t believe it’s coincidence that he put up his best numbers with Chip. He didn’t really come close to those numbers with Andy. He’s also had the fortune of never really having to work with a terrible QB like a Henne/Gabbert type.

          • Amar

            Andre Johnson is washed up, a shadow of his former self at best. He never had blazing speed to begin with anyway. AJ Green, Really ? Julio has a knock of being a bad route runner in ATL.
            Also the argument on how he put up big numbers in Chip’s offense is flawed too. He was the #1 receiver with Mcnabb and Vick, both QBs commanded respect from the opposing defenses. The QBs had great number spreading the ball around and Desean attracted the attention from the defense’s #1 CB and the high safety.
            When Chip came along and Nick Foles at QB, the defenses focussed more on McCoy rather than the receivers. Foles and the Oline did a great job in getting him the ball, but running routes, catching and scoring, that was all him.

          • NickS1

            Washed up? That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Dude just caught 109 passes for 1400 yards, and has always been fast. 4.4 40 coming out and he’s been a monster since he came in the league in ’03. Also, the argument that he put up big numbers in Chip’s offense isn’t remotely flawed. 1332yds this season vs 1150 for his next closest, and over 1000 in only half his seasons. There’s plenty of merit to it. And yes, defenses typically respect the best WR on the field for the offense, even if he’s a glorified #2. Even the argument of always holding the single high safety isn’t entirely true. Has merit, but isn’t true as a blanket statement.

          • http://www.idonthaveawebsite.com theedevilsadvocate

            you know what the only real thing i will miss when it comes to jackson is his punt return. every time that ball was kicked and he was back there to return it always felt like there might be a chance very exciting. other than that i think as receiver i think he can be replaced.

          • Honest_T

            Best at what he does!?! No way. He’s good, but there are other “speed receivers” that are equal or better than DJax.

            No one is better than Megatron, who is just as fast, Julio Jones and Dez Bryant are better and Andre Johnson would be but probably isn’t a ” speed receiver” any more.

            I would put DJax in the same tier as Harvin, C. Patterson, A Brown, T. smith, V. Cruz, S. Johnson, R. Cobb, S. Smith, m. Wallace. In fact I’d take a number of these guys over DJax, who had 1 season with 80 or more catches before CK came along.

            This is all opinion, and intelligent people will disagree, but IMO people are over-weighting what he accomplished last year in Chip’s offense. If you asked me at the end of the 2012 season I’d say I’d rather have Randall Cobb.

          • Maggie

            Prior to the 2013 season, the NFL itself rated Jackson at #31 receiver or 2012. Maclin was rated at #25. Yes, in 2012 everybody on the Eagles sucked, but #31? Hardly best. Another point; $50,000, and $90,000 and $200,000; suddenly $143,088? Where did the $88 dollars come from? DJax is not 20 any more yet it’s entirely possible that his new agent played him off the Eagles and onto the gullible Washington team? Oh and all that ongoing pouting!

        • Maggie

          Not all at once. Plus new shark agent and the IRS.

  • Glenn

    I think Nick Foles has the right attitude and outlook. That’s what makes him our QB of the future. I also would be very happy if he signs the same type of Kaepernick deal with the Eagles, which rewards the QB for being a top QB, insures the player against injury, but gives the team flexibility if the player doesn’t produce.

  • Bdawk20

    “I think you start worrying about numbers and you stop worrying about what you’re doing, that’s where you mess up because none of that really matters,” he said. “I’m happy for those guys if they’re doing well. But my most important thing is being successful with my teammates. All that business stuff, all that other stuff will take care of itself down the road. – Sounds like this quote could have been attributed to either Nick Foles OR DeSean Jackson (oh wait…)

    • anon

      Foles grew up wealthy, it’s different if you grow up poor.

      • Bdawk20

        Yes, if you grow up poor, it is perfectly logical to then go blow all your money on useless things because you truly understand how valuable it is to have money because you never had any before, right?

        • anon

          Or anyone to teach you what to do with it. Growing up there’s lots of things you want but you can’t have, same for your friends and family. I’m just saying it’s easy to get caught up into material things / experiences when you are 20 years old and someone is throwing that $$ at you and you don’t have good adult guidance.

          • Bdawk20

            Except that he does have access to that: https://www.nflplayers.com/About-us/FAQs/Financial-Advisor-FAQs/

            DJax has been paid well for several years, is no longer a 20 year old, but still doesn’t have any money. This $16MM that was guaranteed to him is going to be gone any minute now. Plenty of players with the same background as him make the better choice, but plenty do not. Only he can make that decision for himself and he doesn’t make the smart one, that’s on him at this point.

          • anon

            I agree at this point, I was talking about the stuff from when he was drafted. Some people learn unfortunately others don’t.

          I believe I saw something on TV the other day that said that the average NFL career lasts 5yrs at an average of $4M per year (so $20M avg total) & that 40% of those players are bankrupt in just a few years after their career has ended. That’s pretty sad. I believe that the NFLPA & NFL have workshops for these players to attend that stress/teach financial responsibility. Apparently some just don’t listen. Now if I had $20M, I might blow a 1-2 million quickly (houses, cars, trips, etc.), but the remainder of that money would be put to use to last and also earn more money (interest, investments, etc), while living comfortably but not crazily.

            Boy, that’s way high in terms of career length and salary for everything I’ve ever known. Try this: http://www.businessinsider.com/charts-expose-how-badly-nfl-players-get-paid-2013-9

            That’s what the commercial was stating. I believe it was a commercial. Can’t remember for sure but I’ve seen it a few times so very well could’ve been. I have a visual memory but saw it in passing so it could’ve very well been the NBA…lol. But the point still remains that athletes should have trustees appointed to looking over their finances until they prove worthy or disciplined enough to do it on their own.

          You grow up poor with “friends” who are also poor, listening to all that rap pouring into their ears about hatred, rape and revenge killing, a million dollars will likely make you blind. Every new contract, new goodies beckon AND every “friend” with their hands out, laying on the guilt trip.

            Sure, and then posing with all of those “friends” and starting a record label with them. Musta been one helluva guilt trip.

      I’m guessing his agent wont be so cavalier about negotiations.

        You are right- he is going to get a big pay day if he has another year like last. I just don’t see Nick Foles ever saying that his contract is affecting his play.

  • Addicted2MAmula

    Here is 13 slides that Foles did last year. He graded it 3 out of 10. Looking at these clips makes me see how smart he is when and when not to run. BUT he do need to work on the sliding

    Amazing we are talking about a contract that can’t even be signed until next march. I have seen more articles written, discussions had on csn and wip and 975 over foles potential future deal. I get it’s quietw time but Jesus you wanna talk about fuelin the flames local media. …. No wonder we didn’t get anything for djax in a trade or keep him through draft …. All the cats were outta the bag w 167 stories written …. Lots of them hypothetical stories before a peep was heard …. Djax plays in Carolina or at Louis or zona completely different situation. Hope we don’t ruin the foles situation w discussing at nauseum and askinf him about it for a yr before he can even sign it. Jesus wait till draft next yr if it’s not signed media will be going nutz

      You’re right. But we love football blogs and it’s offseason… how else can we help sheil and Tim pay their rent?
