    Can we just make a list of who the Eagles haven't signed, at this point?

    It really is getting kind of weird. And they drafted 11 players, too!

    Smacks of a "we want to know about the New England Patriots" signings.

    Wow, didn't know he was a FA. A result of the new CBA. I liked him a lot and thought he was one of our top 3 safeties.

    And all the while their star receiver is steaming cause everyone of these backups will make more money than him this year.

    They also brought in guys from the Raiders, Cardinals and Dolphins.

    Asomugha and Rodgers-Cromartie were excellent signings from average teams. Page addresses a need at Safety as well as critical information from a team they play during the season and a potential Superbowl contender.

    I think they intend on using Desean's money they take away from him everyday to pay everyone else and rub it in. :D


    I know it's obviously not enough, but man this kid is stupid for holding out. Players don't get leverage under the new deal. 30,000/day and you have to report 30 days before your first regular season game or you don't get an accrued season towards free agency. What is he hoping to accomplish? His entire paycheck for the season will be gone in a few days and then he'll show up to work anyways or else he has to play under his rookie contract for an extra season.

    The Eagles have no reason to budge for him. I think he deserves to be paid for what he's done for them, and he's a true legitimate #1 receiver making practice squad money. But he won't win this standoff. Not in my eyes.

    On the list of reasons why they signed Jarrad Page, I'd be surprised if "to get inside info on the Patriots" was in the top 10. They can always find out whatever they need about just about any team by signing one of their practice squadders at any point during the year.

    Did you not pay attention to where I said signing Page addresses a need at Safety as well as getting information on the Patriots?

    But who even knows if he sticks around. Last year's rookie will start on one side and this year's rookie may get the other side. If Marlin Jackson is back, can they keep five safeties.

    That's the 64,000 dollar question isn't it!

    I'm waiting for the news articles relating to the Eagles signings proclaiming that Reid is desperate and arrogant.

    Once they trade Asante (hopefully to the Raiders or Bengals) they'll have a lot more.

    Profootballtalk said that we traded him, so we will get something in return for him. Might be a later round pick since the acquisition of Chad Ohocinco dried up our late round picks.

    Do the Eagles not have a salary cap, or does Andy Reid have photos of the Commish. with sheep or something?

    Sorry to see Page go. Lot of upside there if he keeps it up.

    We'll be seeing more of our 4th or 5th corner because we lost a safety?

    Well, they're wrong. He was a free agent.

    I thought he had a second round tender on him.

    Surprised not many posters are a little more pissed about this. I thought Page was a solid fill-in... I actually felt pretty comfortable with him when he was in there and thought he'd only get better as he got comfortable with the system. Time for everyone else to step it up I guess. Best of luck Jarrad.

    I believe Page got the provisional tender in case he remained a RFA under the new CBA, but he ended up unrestricted.

    This is a serious over-statement. First off, the eagles had serious money they had to spend. Secondly, they aren't giving the players ridiculous contracts from what I have seen.

    They've actually been very frugal and focused only on certain players to fill holes.
