Did Arik Armstead finally turn the corner in 2020 or was he playing for a new deal and did he benefit from being on a San Francisco 49ers defense that had playmakers everywhere? It isn’t unfair to say that the latter theory is the correct one.
Before racking up 54 tackles that included 11 for a loss and ten sacks in 2019, Armstead was only able to muster 98 tackles and nine sacks over his first 46 games. Maybe Robert Saleh has helped him turn things around. Maybe he’s a late bloomer, but let’s not lose our minds over this guy just yet. Philly probably needs to steer clear here.
If you didn’t know any better, you’d probably think that Vontaze Burfict was a 33-year-old veteran, but he isn’t. Nope, all of those fireworks or bombs (depending on how you look at it) are all part of a career for a man who hasn’t even reached 30 years of age.
Though there’s been nothing official that has to linked Burfict with the Eagles, you may see his name if you peruse a few social media sites or tweet back and forth with a few fans. If the fans are saying it, there may be a few others who are thinking the same thing.
Please empty your mind of all things Burfict if you are doing so.
Yes, Philly’s got a huge hole to fill with Nigel Bradham‘s departure. Sure, they need a signal-caller on defense. It just can’t be this guy. He was suspended for an entire season, and he’s a personal foul penalty waiting to happen.
