Kearse An Eagle!!!!!
Well were not getting Kearse in fact the Eagles are. Exactly what are the Eagles thinking???....there DL is not bad and they still have no receiver and now no money to sign 1. And there is no way they can resign taylor or Vincent so they need a corner 2. This season is going to be interesting......

That is SHOCKING. I'm seriously the Eagles would have been one of the last teams I expected him to go too. Oh well, Jevon Kearse.... Meet Jon Janen
|Scott ||03-03-2004 04:27 PM |
wow that is surprising, oh well, to be honest I think we can do better for less..

This is the Eagles front office:
"We need to do something about those Redskins. With Gibbs back, we won't be able to get to the quarterback like we did last season. Oh no!! Let's get Kearse. We're going to need him!"
Ha ha ha!
8 years, $66 million.
[quote]In a deal that makes Kearse the highest-paid defensive lineman in NFL history, he will sign an eight-year contract worth $66 million. The pass-rush terror nicknamed "The Freak" will receive a signing bonus of $16 million. There are additional roster bonuses of $2 million each in the first two seasons, essentially guaranteeing $20 million of the deal.
Kearse, 27, will earn $24 million in the first three years of the contract.

Wow. What's the link? I guess they miss Douglas. Let's hope they overspent, and Kearse's ankle doesn't hold up (I know, I know, how could anyone root for an injury? But this is the Eagles....)
|hank64 ||03-03-2004 04:34 PM |
I guess we need Chris Samuels around, now......
|BrunellFan ||03-03-2004 04:34 PM |
so much for getting TO. I doubt they can afford both of them.
|skins009 ||03-03-2004 04:35 PM |
This is a great move on the eagles part. You guys must not have noticed that they had no good d-ends last year. The eagles organizations put together a very talented team with 25 million in cap space and now they got the premier pass rusher on the market. The eagles are gonna be that much better now. This move won't help there run stopping problems though. So there is still some hope.
|Gmanc711 ||03-03-2004 04:37 PM |
Id rather have them with Kearse than TO, that team's Dline was just fine and now its a upgrade for htem, so they should have a good Dline again. But their recivers couldnt catch a cold in a room full of sick people, plus they loose staley. I'll be honest I do like MCnabb(i'm by Syracuse so gimme a break) but he's gonna be awful without more offensive help.
|JWsleep ||03-03-2004 04:58 PM |
With the Gibbs/Bugel max-protect scheme in full effect, and Portis zooming by the freak inside and outside, I am not worried about this. Yeah, he's good, but we've got the tackles, RB, and the coaches to negate it.
If this was still Spurrier's team, it'd be a problem. But the Lord of the Rings is BACK!
|hank64 ||03-03-2004 05:09 PM |
I'm kinda relieved that we didn't go after Kearse and his salary demands... by the way, the Eagles could still trade for T.O., but it would cost them the farm.
|BrunellFan ||03-03-2004 05:18 PM |
According to ESPN, we *did* try to go after him, but the Eagles accepted a price that we werent willing to pay, so about 5 hours ago or so, we abondoned Kearse...
|itvnetop ||03-03-2004 05:19 PM |
i agree that this was a blessing in disguise. we can use the money we save from not meeting kearse's demands to get a serviceable lineman like wistrom and a cb like winfield.
oh yeah, let's not count out udeze just yet (although everyone is focusing on taylor in the draft)... BKU is more of a freak than the freak himself!

Amazing. Snyder finally ran up against a dollar sign he didn't like. :D
