When word emerged out of the blue on July 4 that Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and his wife, Christina, were divorcing, both parties took steps to emphasize that the team wouldn’t be affected. Given the manner in which the McCourt divorce turned the Dodgers upside down, many Eagles fans opted for a wait-and-see approach.
They didn’t have to wait long.
The New York Post recently reported that a settlement has been reached, and that court papers could be filed as soon as next week. Christina Lurie reportedly will emerge with “a sizable chunk” of the team.
Jeffrey Lurie purchased the Eagles in 1994.
