Celek not retiring is a cap problem. It was 4M we needed. Ouch.

This could be a problem. We need to go further in our restructures or in letting FA leave.

On the Foles issue, let's look at it from his point of view.

If he wants to be a FREE agent, he is better off waiting until after this year when he can pick among any teams that need a QB, not only those that can meet the Eagles price. Also, he is more valuable at can get paid more money when a team doesn't have to give up draft picks. So, you can make the argument that he will get more money in 2019 than he would in 2018 if traded, and it will have a greater chance of being with a team he wants to play for. The cost is one year at a high backup salary versus the first year of a new deal, even if that new deal is less than his new deal would be next year. He loses a year of starting, but may end up playing a few games here. As long as he doesn't play poorly, he should retain his earning potential.

Now if the Eagles don't trade Foles, they are likely to get a third round compensatory pick next year (assumes we lose more FA then we sign in 2019.)

If Foles makes Glennon Or Taylor money, he's getting us a 3rd. That is a lock.

Just a few thoughts.


Were you listening to Eskin on WIP around 6 tonight? Sounds like what he was saying, but he added in the success factor, pointing out that most teams looking for a QB with the exception of maybe the Vikes (but it sounds like they are going for Cousins), are not ready to contend. Staying here gives him a chance to be part of contender again, earn a good salary, and still be worth a lot next year. There is always a demand for QBs, and at 30 he could easily get a 3 year 50-60 mil deal as an UFA based on the kind of coin tossed around lately.

No, I didn't hear Eskin.
