Eagles executive V.P. of football operations Howie Roseman is right; no altercation happened between the Eagles and running back Derrius Guice during his visit to Philadelphia. It happened in another city in another state.

Per a league source, the incident (reportedly a shouting match) happened at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

So why did the Eagles bring him to Philly after an altercation in Indy? Per the source, Guice’s representatives requested that Guice be given a second chance to make a first impression. And the visit in Philadelphia actually went well, per the source.

Guice didn’t delve into specifics regarding the various reported concerns that fueled his slide to No. 59 during an introductory press conference in Washington.

“My response to that is it’s all behind me,” Guice told reporters. “The Combine was a few months ago. I just got drafted by the Washington Redskins and I’m just ready to get to work with this great organization.”

If there is any lingering animosity between the Eagles and Guice, Guice will get to see the Eagles twice per year, for as long as Guice is in Washington.

  1. First round to 59th pick equals how many millions? Face it, this guy either has incredibly bad agents or is a complete moron or both.

  2. I glad Philly passed on this idiot. Our locker room is tight, close, and fun. He would probably miss a block on the Philly special play. And we get to crush him 2 times a year.

  3. The Redskins got a bargain. Who cares if he had problems with another team’s interview approach? That team didn’t have to pick him.

  4. Yelling at a GM at the scouting combine is not ideal but..the kid has skill. If he can grow up (numerous other incidents reported/not reported) he can be a great RB. I don’t think he will flourish in D.C. though. He is worth the gamble imo though. The Eagles culture in their locker room would gave done him well though. Now he’ll face the Defending Superbowl Champs and the best defence vs the run in the NFL twice a year… We’ll see who was right/wrong.

    Yeah. Michael Bennett fits that mode.

  6. 20-year-olds always make great decisions, kudos to those of you that call him an idiot and trash. Sure you were perfect as a kid.

    Not perfect by any stretch, but I never made up stories about questions I was asked in an interview or got into a shouting match with a prospective employer.

  8. I see… the media ain’t gonna let this one go because it happened to the Redskins… they love pushing and pushing the dysfunction narrative for the Redskins… there have been waaaaay too many headlines about Guice this past 3 days… If history is any indication… there will be negative story after negative story until the media creates a wedge forcing the Redskins and Guice to part ways….

  9. Bad fit for both of them. Eagles are better off with Goedert and he’s better off in some other town where there are no hard feelings under the carpet.

  10. Hope he has 19 carries for 132 yds and 2 TD in their first meeting…and Alex Smith throws for 3 TD and adds one on the ground.

  11. Howie Howie Howie, Something is NOT passing the “smell” test in Philadelphia!
    Now does this kid have a self obsorbed attitude problem?, or did someone in your organization – namely YOU, ask a stupidly absurd & irrelevant question??

  12. The eagles need to let this go. He told them if they drafted him, he wouldn’t play in that city. No big deal. They should be happy they won a title and continue on. They have work to do. Nobody believes they are a future threat. Foles was better than the other starter. That tells me it was play design that won a title. Just like the read option, and the wildcat, they’ll be easy to defend next year.

  13. Guice is taking the high road. He’s being smart. Focus on the Redskins. There isn’t a huge gap between him and Barkley, talent wise. Hope he has a great career. Going to Washington is like having 2 1/2 strikes against you, but there’s hope.

  14. Maybe one of the Philly assistants asked an inappropriate question about his mother. If that is the case then that assistant is lucky shouting is all that was done. I can only hope he makes the Eagles regret not taking him twice a year for a long time.

  15. So he got into a SHOUTING match with the Eagles staff. They said altercation like there were some punches thrown or wrestling. There still has to be a reason for it if he didn’t scream at the other teams.

  16. For years the cabal/monopoly/old boys club that is the NFL has used the Combine “interviews” to say all types of inappropriate crap to prospective cannon fodder/players that would be grounds for a lawsuit in an actual interview with an actual company that doesn’t enjoy the protections and extreme liberties the NFL takes. The League is a lecherous joke that holds every city that hosts a team hostage for public money and abuses the actual lifeblood of the sport, the players, from day one. Who can blame a kid for wanting to take a poke at some old coke snorting geezer, who because he can cut a check thinks he can say whatever he wants to see if he can get a rise out of you.

    Yeah that same Tight, Close and Fun locker room that was in an ILLEGAL FORMATION on The Philly Special play that should have been flagged and The TD taken off the board. Yes the Eagles had a Magical Season but get your heads out of the clouds and look it up, it was Illegal. That is unless like most things its only Illegal if its called or you get caught…

  18. Cowboys fans mad that the Eagles traded up to take Dallas in Dallas and keep him from playing for Dallas.

    What sad sacks Cowboys fans are.

    Not only Michael Bennett as someone already mentioned,but what about Daryl Worley. And let’s go beyond the players what about the Eagle fans that during their Celebration there was a fire set and damaged property..jumping off a hotel awning damaging light posts…… trash and crushed (beer) cans all over the street. Sorry Philly my NBA Spurs won 5 Championships and our celebrations were conducted with CLASS and no damaged property or fires…..people just celebrated with JOY at our Championship! #GOSPURSGO!

    There has to be something drastically WRONG for the Eagles to take a player named after the DALLAS COWBOYS….Maybe Howie secretly longs to work for “America’s Team”..LOL!!!…….And Hey Im a Redskin fan and thought the Eagles pick was WEIRD and should bring BAD karma!

  21. Once again Hawks outsmart everyone by taking Penny instead of this head case diva.

    Penny will lead all rookies in yards from scrimmage next season.

    Book it.

  22. I find it very interesting that much is made about Derrius Guice yet there is little mention of the wide receiver that the Browns drafted , Antonio Callaway, flunked the drug test at the combine, suspended for using stolen credit cards, misdemeanor marijuana possession, and possession of drug equipment, accused of a sexual assault (later cleared), and known to hang around with known drug dealers!!!! But I guess playing video games, missed his flight and was late for a meeting, and raising ones voice is far more serious….??????????????!!?!!?!!?!!?!?!?

    How many times do you need it explained to you that Jeffery checked with the official who gave him the all clear? If the official on the field says he wasn’t lined up wrong while looking right at him before the play, then he wasn’t lined up wrong.

    Hes not going to let it go. I guess he knows better than the guys in the striped shirts on the field. Don’t waste time typing to bitter crybabies.

    Dallas Cowboys won’t so you better hope Washington can do it for you! And the draft in Dallas was so much worse than the festivities in Philly.
