    Good. I’m glad another player my team (Eagles) helped a rival get is sticking around. I just hope all the NFC East teams are good this year. I wouldn’t want it to be easy to win the division for my birds. I wonder if we can trade D.Jackson to DC as well they need a few more targets for DMAC. Anything for friends!

    And that Ronnie Brown wiki page is interesting… it lists him as a FA, but the first sentence says:
    “Ronnie Gene Brown (born December 12, 1981 in Rome, Georgia) is an American football running back who is currently a member of the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League.”
    I doubt the Dolphins would just cut him, but that would be something to keep an eye on.

    This guy better show up this year or pack his bags and get ready for a tour in Oakland …
    Its scary to believe this guy was drafted in the same draft as D Ware

    Spears is a good fill-in. . . something everybody looks for in a FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK. . .

    The DE position in the 3 4 defensive is not the feature passrusher. He is not a superstar, more blue collar type.
