The Eagles' secondary is starting to take shape with the recent signing of veteran CB Patrick Robinson and now this news about Ron Brooks.

I suspect this is good news for both Brooks and the Eagles.

The Eagles get a little cap relief and they could release him after this season with only 250k$ dead$.

After such a significant injury Brooks gets a job and opportunity to show what he can do. He is only 28 yrs old.

That works for me!

Next year as an option I guess helps him.

The offense is going to be something special.

But we're going to need do something the eagles haven't done in a really long time. Hit on two corners in the draft.

To be more accurate, we haven't actually drafted an NFL starting-caliber DB since 2002. Considine, Demps, Allen, and Boykin are the best we've done drafting a DB since then. wacko.gif

2002 was arguably the best draft we've ever had. Sheppard and Brown to replace Taylor and Vincent without skipping a beat, Lewis to upgrade SS for years, and then Westbrook in the 3rd round for good measure.

Thanks for putting a date on it. Now I'll go kill myself.

Nah, stay alive and see what Wentz can do this year with some receivers!
