The Philadelphia Eagles plan to put defensive Mike Patterson on the non-football injury/illness list for the rest of the season and reduce Patterson's pay, ProFootballTalk.com reported Wednesday. Last week, Patterson was hospitalized with viral pneumonia, but by putting him on the illness list, the Eagles can exercise their discretion regarding paying Patterson. They plan to pay Patterson, according to the report, but not the full amount of his contract. How Patterson will react to the pay reduction remains to be seen. The Eagles are expected to save about $150,000 by taking this course of action. Patterson has played in five games this season and has one sack.

Some Thoughts After The Eagles Win Against The Bucs

The Philadelphia Eagles are pinching pennies: Mike Patterson move proves cash is king

Late in November in an apparent cost cutting move the Philadelphia Eagles cut Jason Babin.

The recent decision to reduce Mike Patterson's salary after placing him on the non-football illness list is much more difficult...
