This Eagles team tends to fall in love with guys and hand out a few contracts that come from an emotional place but come on. That has to stop. Brandon Brooks, Lane Johnson, and Carson Wentz all deserved long-term deals. Those aren’t the guys we’re all discussing.
Heck, you can argue that Malcolm Jenkins, Jalen Mills, Rodney McLeod, and Jordan Howard deserve new deals. Even if you disagree, you must admit that you can see the argument for extending their Eagles careers. Those aren’t the guys that this is about either.
This is for the guys like Vinny Curry, Ronald Darby, and Nelson Agholor, guys who made too much money and were here too long. They’re the guys that the coaches tell us are doing god jobs even though the eyeball test says otherwise.
This is for all of you people who want LeSean McCoy back. This is for all of the times Howie Roseman brought old Eagles back because it didn’t seem like there were any other options. Stop it. As mentioned, this team is projected to have $40 million to spend on talent. They have ten draft choices. ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to move on. Let’s just hope the Eagles don’t start a spending spree like a teenager that just got a raise on their allowance.
