The Philadelphia Eagles have two highly touted corners in Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie whose futures with the team are uncertain after this season.
Rodgers-Cromartie is set to become a free agent. However, making a deal with him or any other player is not a priority for the Birds at the moment. With a 3-6 record and preparing to start a rookie quarterback on Sunday, the team’s focus is rightly on getting things done on the field.
DRC will make $1,963,750 this year. But the far bigger paycheck goes to Nnamdi Asomugha, who is set to earn a staggering $15 million in base salary next season with $4 million guaranteed. Jeff McLane of the Inquirer believes that the Birds will hang on to Asomugha, so as not to take a $4 million hit, but that his salary will be cut based on his production.
Speaking of on-field production, quarterbacks have a whopping 109.5 passer rating when throwing in Asomugha’s direction. To say that’s damning is putting it mildly. When throwing towards...

The remainder of the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season should be all about whether or not Nick Foles is the future of this franchise. Assuming he plays for the rest of the season, there are some things we can look for in order to determine if he is, in fact, the future.
If there is to be anymore excitement generated by the Eagles, it will be due to the play of Foles and how it energizes...
Michael Vick isn’t expected to play tackle football this weekend, as the Eagles turn to Nick Foles while Vick attempts to recover from a concussion.
It’s uncertain when — or even if — Vick will return this season. If he doesn’t, there’s a chance that he doesn’t even return to Philadelphia. He’s shown flashes of brilliance at times in Philly, but the overall body of...
Nick Foles practiced with the first team this week and stuck around for extra film work.
He's ready to make his first career NFL start for the Philadelphia Eagles.
All he needs now is to officially and publicly be named the starter. The Eagles again practiced another day without injured quarterback Michael Vick. The veteran has sat out since suffering a severe concussion in...
Will Nick Foles be able to perform with the weight of the Eagles franchise on his back?
Michael Vick is still feeling the effects of a substantial concussion, and will not be ready for Sunday, and may not be ready to play for quite some time. That leaves the Philadelphia Eagles at 3-6 with their rookie QB Nick Foles set to take over the reins.
I’m sure Foles will try to say something...

It was a very smart of Andy Reid to “rest” Michael Vick the rest of the way. He’s not making the playoffs, but he can still save his job if Nick Foles goes say 4-3. He can blame their slow start on Vick and his history developing quarterbacks will probably convince management to let Reid stick around and develop the promising young quarterback...
When Michael Vick got concussed in the second quarter of the Eagles’ 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, first it is a real shame for such a gamer.
It might be a blessing in disguise for Philadelphia Eagle fans.
Not that Nick Foles will definitely be a World Beater, but the dude is 6’6”, 243 pounds, compared to Michael Vicks’ 6-0, 215 pounds.
Foles in size and stature is closest...

We all know that football is a team sport and that to get a win, all phases of the game must come together to propel a group to victory. But come Sunday, it’s going to be all about the quarterbacks.
When the Philadelphia Eagles face the Washington Redskins at FedEx field on Sunday afternoon...
There’s no question that the Philadelphia Eagles have been a big disappointment this season. One of their biggest problems on the defensive side of the ball has been the play of Nnamdi Asomugha who still hasn’t lived up to the free agent mega deal he signed last season.
There’s a chance that the eagles might cut Asomugha this offseason if he doesn’t take a pay cut.
Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that the Philadelphia Eagles will most likely begin the process of cleaning house after the season.
McLane mentions that the Eagles are projected to be close to $18 million over the salary cap next season, so it makes sense that they would begin to address some of their high-salaried players.
Has a $15 million...
