Great Job Dled!! What do we do about Grimes now??? Do we get something worked out, or do we trade him for a couple of draft picks????

we will keep Grimes, and he will probably play the slot.

Another Patriot retread for TD… over-the-hill, overpaid prima donna. He cost the Patriots the SuperBowl in 2007 by dropping a sure Eli Manning interception just before “helmet catch”……wonder why Philly gave him up for nothing?

Philly cleared cap room and signed Asomugha/Cromartie last year… Samuel was expendable. Philly’s loss is Atlanta’s gain.

The reporter said it was embarrassing for the eagles to trade samuel for a 7th round pick.I don’t think so simply because the eagles will have to sign there upcoming draft picks,they saved money to do that by dealing him.And also they put the ball in samuels court by giving him his choice from 3 teams(Titans and denver the other two) Which says to me, that they respected his(Samuel) wishes helping him restructure his contract with negotiating with atlanta to make it happen.

Sounds like last year when the Failclowns took the Vikequeens trash only now it’s Philly’s once great but now worn out Sammuel. Smooth move elax . What happened to building thru the draft? Now it’s 0-3 with everyones re-treads! hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehee
