The Eagles may have known all about what was in the NJ.com article, but the teams they were trying to get a draft pick from certainly didnít. When that article came out this morning, the Eagles knew there was no way any team would give up a draft pick AND take on his huge $10.5 million salary.

Once that article came out, their hands were tied. They had no other choices but to cut him or keep him, and they had decided long ago not to keep him.

They cut him today BECAUSE the article came out today. The timing was no surprise at all Ö at least not to me.

Agree no suprise there but also he was never involved with the homicides and I wonder on what grounds the officers had that they needed him to question him on when he was no where close to any of the incidents. It sounds like they were saying guilty by association so they knew that he knew them so they questioned him. Sounds like they wanted it to be hyped up an more attention. I would sew that article for falsely accusing me being in a gang since they cost me a job. Knowing a member of a gang doeant mean hes a gang banger. Then again he throwing gangs signs out on tv just means he did this all to himself. I dont feel like hes a gang member but a friend of the the gang theres no denying With all the pics.
