Carroll had previous NFL experience; Johnson was given the greatest heist in trade history when he inherited a gold mine for Herschel...

The Eagles have reportedly already asked Asomugha to take a “massive” pay cut. My guess is that he’ll turn down their offer and end up getting released. Look for...
Nnamdi Asomugha is due $15.5 million from the Eagles next season, $4 million which is guaranteed. Chip Kelly and Eagles brass are waiting for Asomugha to decide if he’ll restructure his deal to remain with the team.
Regardless of what Asomugha does, Chip Kelly thinks Nnamdi is an outstanding person according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
