Sad to see them go: D'Andre Swift & Olamide Zaccheaus
Spotrac's suggested market value for D'Andre Swift states he has earned something in the area of a four-year deal that would pay him $22,692,520 based on his play for the Eagles this season. That's an average salary of $5,673,130. That's also a long-winded way of saying there's no way in Hades the Eagles are going to pay him that.
He isn't an every-down back. Philly's usage of him has again confirmed that. He has been a joy to watch all season. The Pro Bowl nod, his first, was truly well-deserved, but the possible pay raise seemingly disqualifies us from seeing the arrangement continue.
We also like Olamide Zaccheaus. He's scrappy and plays hard. Unlike Quez Watkins, he can be trusted when the ball is tossed in his direction. Frankly, we think he deserves more targets, but do we believe the Eagles would open the purse on an extension.
Unless, he returns on another one-year deal, this is probably over, right?
It's so hard to say goodbye: Boston Scott (maybe)
Truthfully, we will always have a soft spot in our hearts for our 'Giant Killer', Boston Scott, but though some of us believe he deserves more opportunities, Nick Sirianni's regime has never fallen in love with him.
He's Philly's current kick returner. There's a chance, however, that they could find another, and if he isn't getting any snaps against the New York Giants anymore (he was given one carry in Week 16), that could be a sign that the journey is over.
