With the contract dance between the Eagles and quarterback
#1
Nick Foles already progressing to the point at which the final decision rests in the hands of the team http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authenti...cox-jersey , the player needs to take full advantage of his leverage. And he has plenty.With the Eagles apparently hoping to tag and trade Foles, Foles and his representatives should be prepared to counter any attempt to block his path to the open market, either by persuading the Eagles not to do it or by challenging the effort, or both.First, Foles should take the position that, if the Eagles apply the franchise tag, he’ll immediately accept it, putting him under contract for 2019 at roughly $25 million, fully guaranteed. That’s cash and cap dollars that will apply to Foles on the Eagles’ books, unless and until Foles is traded. Foles also should make it clear that he won’t be signing a long-term deal, with the Eagles or anyone else. That would make it much harder to trade him, since his new team would be stepping into a Kirk Cousins-style conundrum, which would entail Foles costing $25 million for 2019 and, if tagged again Womens Jake Elliott Jersey , $30 million for 2020.That could be enough to scare away any team that believes it will parlay a trade for Foles into a long-term deal, especially if the team wants to pay less than $55 million over the first two years. In turn, that could persuade the Eagles not to tag Foles in the first place.Second, Foles and his agents should challenge the franchise tag, if it’s applied. Article 4, Section 8, subsection (b) of the Collective Bargaining Agreement states as follows: “A Club extending a Required Tender must, for so long as that Tender is extended, have a good faith intention to employ the player receiving the Tender at the Tender compensation level during the upcoming season.” If the Eagles would simply be tagging Foles to trade him, Foles should invoke this provision and fight the tag, via an expedited grievance that would be resolved before the start of free agency.What could the Eagles say in response? Whatever it is, Foles should force them to try to come up with something other than what their strategy for the tag would apparently be: A placeholder aimed at getting the Eagles a draft pick now instead of a compensatory pick later. If the Eagles attempt with the straight face to argue that this isn’t the plan, Foles should use this ESPN report as the starting point for a scorched-earth effort to review text messages and emails to determine whether and to what extent the Eagles have spoken to other teams about a tag and trade.Yes, the Eagles have the right under the rules to tag Foles. But unless they truly intend to employ Foles at the amount of the tag for 2019 Derek Barnett Jersey , they’re abusing the rules. Is that how the Eagles should be showing gratitude to the quarterback who delivered the team’s only Super Bowl championship?That’s a question Foles and his agents should be asking now, as the Eagles finalize their strategy. With so many people seemingly accepting the idea that the Eagles have every right to tag and trade Foles, the sooner Foles and his agents make sure everyone realizes that: (1) the strategy isn’t appropriate; and (2) Foles will fight it, the more likely the Eagles will possibly decide to do the right thing and let Foles hit the open market. The Eagles defender is looking forward to having fun this season." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesBleeding Green Nation homepageHorizontal - WhiteBleeding Green Nationa Philadelphia Eagles communityFollow Bleeding Green Nation online:Follow Bleeding Green Nation on TwitterFollow Bleeding Green Nation on FacebookLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchBleeding Green Nation main menuFanpostsFanshotsEaglesOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Eagles StoriesScheduleRosterStatsYahoo Eagles NewsYahoo Eagles Team PageYahoo Eagles ReportYahoo Eagles Depth ChartYahoo Eagles TransactionsYahoo Eagles PhotosOdds About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Tim Jernigan is moving on from last year and planning to help the Eagles win while having funNew,46commentsThe Eagles defender is looking forward to having fun this season.EDTHis smile is contagious (and shiny), and Eagles defender Timmy Jernigan has a lot more to smile about now that he can put his injury-filled 2018 behind him and look ahead to another season in Philadelphia.Jim Schwartz has never wavered in his support for Jernigan, and has repeatedly talked about how his personality and energy is contagious both in the locker room and on the field. But, now that he’s back on the field and healthy, he’s looking forward and putting his injury struggles in the past.“I’m motivated to win games and to help this team,” Jernigan said, according to the team site. “I feel like last year, that’s in the past, man. I can’t change that. I’m just focused on what’s ahead of me.”Last year, Jernigan only suited up for three regular season and two playoff games after suffering a mysterious back injury during the offseason which lingered through the majority of the year. Once he was fully cleared to get back on the field http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authenti...rby-jersey , his coaches and teammates embraced his return with open arms, fully aware of all the talent he brought to the roster.He only put up five total tackles in 2018 and one sack in the playoffs, but getting back on the field in any regard was at least a step in the right direction. Now, he’s fully healthy and excited to be participating at practice and able to work with his many other talented defensive teammates like Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox and newly acquired Malik Jackson.“I feel good and I’m having fun. That’s my goal this year. If I do those things, the rest will take care of itself,” Jernigan said, according to the team site. “I’m going to control what I can control. This defense, it has a lot of pieces. I just want to help us win games and play my best football and have fun doing it.”Having fun is part of what makes Jernigan successful, and part of what makes him beloved throughout the locker room. During the Eagles’ 2017 Super Bowl run, the team was firing on all cylinders and part of their success was directly the result of them having so much fun and playing with confidence and swagger. Jernigan is ready to get back to that kind of energy now that he’s healthy and back in action.
