[NFL] Kearse Signs With Eagles


 Share

Recommended Posts

In a deal that makes Kearse the highest-paid defensive lineman in NFL history, he will sign an eight-year contract worth $66 million. The pass-rush terror nicknamed "The Freak" will receive a signing bonus of $16 million. There are additional roster bonuses of $2 million each in the first two seasons, essentially guaranteeing $20 million of the deal.

With every new NFC East signing I see whatever hopes I had for a rebirth for my Giants this season slipping away. :(

This has been the best thing to happen to my team in such a long time, I think I am going to cry. :cry:

Now on the local philadelphia news channels they say the Eagles management is really talking with Terrell Owens and trying to get a trade deal going and he could be signed as early as Friday if it is true. In the words of the news reporter, things are getting "hot and heavy".

as great as this is, keep in mind that vincent and taylor are both free agents. i know they have sheppard and brown but the verteran leadership of these two guys will be felt in the secondary. staley is gone as well but there is westbrook if he can come back from that torn tricep (bicep?). im a die hard eagles fan but im not getting excited as of yet. i will be a bit more excited if they sign TO.

The Eagles message board is exploding and a regular on the board posted this in a thread:

I was down in Fort Lauderdale for a job interview today and had just gotten a voicemail message from my brother around dinnertime that the Eagles had signed Kearse! I was so pumped and headed back to the airport to come home. I am in the metal dectector line at the airport and lo and behold who do I see RIGHT in front of me but Jevon Kearse and his marketing agent.

He was on the phone talking to someone but as soon as he got off I shook his hand and congratulated him on the deal. I then told him that I was an Eagles season ticket holder and how glad we were to have him. He said he was really happy to play for the Eagles since they were in back to back to back NFC Championship games.

I then told him how sick the Eagles pass rush would be with him, Corey and Darwin and he said that he already talked to Corey on the phone about it.

I then said that I heard the Eagles were also trying to get Terrell Owens and he said "I heard it's already done."

Hmmm.

Ahh and the offical Eagles sports reporter had this to say on the forum. And yes I know it is his opinion, but he as never really lied about anything in his articles for the webpage or on the boards. I won't be able to sleep tonight with this much hype. The 49ers said the decision about what to do with TO should be in 72 hours.:

Q:

Dave in your HONEST Opinion...., will the Eagles get TO??

Remember I want YOUR OPINION.....I wann know what YOU think.....I'm not asking whether the Eagles will to get TO..you know...

A:

ummmmmm

My opinion .... based on nothing but my opinion, right? I don't know that much ...

Yes.

I could be wrong, of course. Things change.

Good night. I'm out. Delete this thread before I get fired.

And also:
I'll give you this: it's not a big cornerback ... and I'll give you this ... I asked somebody who would know about T.O. and got a "No comment" back. Take it for what it's worth

I have been on the Eagles boards long enough to know this so usually when Dave doesn't say "NO" outright that is a very good sign.

On NFL Access @ 11pm, both Seth Joyner & Brinson Buckner said TO and Philly is all but a done deal.

If this deal works out I am going to crap my pants or have a heart attack. Maybe both at the same time. I do not even want to go to bed tonight until I hear the news if we got him or not. I can tell you first hand, no one in Philadelphia is sleeping right now, this is all too much.

If they get TO then that division is looking to be the best in the nfl, I don't have much hope in kearse as he gets injured way too often.

Not when you have the multimillion dollar Nova Care Complex outside the stadium!

Well they better assign him a permanent room :p

Look at it this way, what do the Eagles have to lose? After we lost the presence of a big player for the rest of the team to look up to like Hugh Douglas, the defense has never really been the same, especially with the rush defense. And Jerome McDougal is not as intimidating as Hugh was. We can't even get over the NFC championship hump so the only solution is to do something drastic and a little risky to shake things up. Perhaps Kearse can bring that intimidation factor back. And teams should be worried now, the combination of Darth Dawkins and Kearse could end the careers of a few QBs. :cool:

i thought the skins were gonna own the nfc east... atleast there still is going to be competition.

but i hope t.o. lands somewhere else, like washington...

now i heard that the rumor is that the Ravens are in talks for TO

Yea that is what some people are saying. It will probably come down between the Eagels and Ravens. We shall find out by Friday I guess. May the best bird win.

I am without a doubt keeping the faith for T.O.

It would might just erase some of the heart-ache of the past three years. Plus I think both parties are anxious to work together, which is unusually enough in the NFL to make a deal happen. I'm so glad Washington passed on him during the regular season last year.
