Its not just the Eagles, its a lot of NFL teams. Its starting to look like this is going to be trend now. Teams re-sign their best players and because of that you haven't see that many big time great players on the free agent market.whenever we have unused cap space, sign young emerging players to extensions.
Well I'm sure most of the work was done by his agent. I don't think it was much of a distraction for the player.I wouldn't want players on the saints to be concerned with contracts while the season is going on.
Reggie Brown has had a really great season so far, he deserves a new one, I just question if now was the right time..
That's why the Eagles do this during the current season when they have unused cap space because it's not like you can carry it over.Sure. Brilliant. What an excellent way to paint ourselves into a corner and be stuck with somebody for several seasons who isn't all we thought they'd be because we can't afford the cap hit to trade or cut them ala Michael Vick in Atlanta. Say, could I give the number to the Falcons or Panthers office so you can apply to be their GM?
The Eagles success over the past decade is probably tops in the NFC and they are never in cap trouble. In fact, they always seem to have enough cap space to sign one or two relatively big name free agents, TO and then Darren Howard for example.Eagles are losing and saints are winning, i think the eagles owner(s) need to take a page from Benson right about now. Winning is all that matters, let the players work for they're check. "It's the Carrot on a stick approach IMO"
Works for me on Madden. I sign young studs for as long as they'll accept, before they blow up and hit the market. This also cuts down on expensive hold-outs. I usually trade over 30, Horn types during the last year of the deal for nice picks. Older vets want massive deals.That's why the Eagles do this during the current season when they have unused cap space because it's not like you can carry it over.
They lock up their good young players early, and most likely at a discounted price from what they would command if they hit free agency.
