Re: Philadelphia Eagles: When You Wentz Upon a Star

They made a mistake. They're probably getting a 3rd round pick out of it but obviously could have received much more. One of those rare times an NFL team didn't act strictly out if self-interest

Re: Philadelphia Eagles: When You Wentz Upon a Star

you're delusional. he's got a 20MM option and no guarantee that he will sign an extension, so the birds would have to roll the dice and hope Foles plays ball with whatever team they could find to trade him to, because no team would trade for him without knowing if he would sign an extension. if they couldn't trade him, they have a 20MM backup and they're over the cap by like 9MM.

seems like a fairly obvious move to not sign him and a gigantic risk to keep him to try and get a 3rd round pick, which is optimistic in my opinion - they got the 2nd round pick offer because there were 2 years effectively left on the contract, now there is 1.

Re: Philadelphia Eagles: When You Wentz Upon a Star

Joe Flacco got a 4th. They had leverage?

It's also that now the door is open for him possibly heading to the Giants or Redskins. If you think he sucks you probably like it. I'd rather ship him out of conference.

Eh. Yes, they could have gotten better than a 3rd most likely, but that’s also risking nobody taking him and ending up with an extra $20mil on the cap.

you're actually arguing against yourself by bringing Flacco into this.
1) most people think that was a terrible trade for the Broncos
2) Flacco and Foles have very very similar stats
3) Flacco has 3 years left on his contract

So since Flacco is basically = Foles, and Flacco has 3 years left on his deal and is worth, at best, a 4th round pick, how is Foles worth a better pick with only 1 year left on his contract?

which they can't really afford to do since they currently have less than 1MM in cap space

Re: Philadelphia Eagles: When You Wentz Upon a Star

Nice way to free up a ton of cap space. Big gamble if they tagged him and weren’t able to move him. Should have close to 35M available now, Howie’s up to something... Hi Bell

As a whole, I think it's fine for the caliber of QB Wentz is if he even comes close to his 2017 form.

Was mostly surprised at this happening with two full years left on his original deal.
