Well, one holdout in Philly has ended. But not the one that Eagles fans wish would end.
Per Eskin, the deal is worth $7.9 million over four years. Only the first three years will be guaranteed, which means that Watkins’ camp caved on the question of whether the entire deal should be guaranteed.
Earlier today, in an appearance on PFT Live, Eagles president Joe Banner made the case for not guaranteeing all four years. It was clear based on Banner’s comments that the Eagles didn’t plan to cave.
Six first-rounders remain unsigned.
