I’ve learned through an NFL source that members of the Eagles senior staff will be taking a 25% cut in their contracts on or around June 11th. This paycut will be for senior members of the staff only and not for entry level positions in the organization.
I don’t have any further details about the specific positions and names of the Eagles personnel, who will experience the drop in pay.
I have to give the Eagles credit in that they haven’t furloughed or laid off staff up until this point. Quite a few teams have fired members of their staff and forced them to take pay cuts.
The more I find out about the contracts which the NFL owners have with many their employees, I think the chances of the NFL playing both a full preseason and regular season are bleak. Notice that there’s no urgency by either side to get a deal done.
The NFL owners who have furloughed and laid-off employees promised these workers that they would be paid all of their yearly wages, if the team didn’t miss any preseason or regular season games. That would mean the owners would have to pay many of these employees for all those days when they didn’t work.
If you know anything about owners, they don’t want to pay employees for not working.
This means “no seconds” for Coach AR when he dines out..
Remember his tital is Executive of Football Operations and Head Coach
I think I am about to scratch this 2011 Season off completely and am now going to focus on the 2012 Season and The 2011 NFL Draft..
Gone from the Team in 2011
Weaver,N Cole,MJG,R Wells,V Abriami,O Gaither, E Sims, A Jordan, Q Mickell, D Paterson, D Akers,E Buckley, C Hall,
Gone from the Team in 2012
Jamall Jackson, W Justice, Jerome Harrison,M Patterson,J Parker,Teo,R Sapp,S Bradley,J Hansen,C Anderson,S Rocca
Teo will be gone this year! Can’t play!
They will give (TEO & SAPP) every opportunity this year under Washburn to make th esquad and see what they can do.. Both should not have been drafted for they are not good fits in a 4-3 Scheme to begin with (Just like C Gogong and the countless others before them) but it is what it is…
Every year this team get us all soooo excited. Until they fire REID, WE will see no change. I really don’t care if we have a season. I can’t stand looking at a large 400 lb figure with a constipated, confused look on his face during game time.
Does that mean Dave Spadaro too? Cant believe he gets paid at all really…
..and pete60..Coach Reid has balls as big as his belly..Get rid of him and were really screwed..You put a QB who can keep his head on straight during the Big Games and we’d have us a couple Lombardi’s gathering dust already..You just remember that next time you want to run off a sure fire HOF coach..douche.
The NFL was almost perfect. Now they are really blowing it. If they miss one regular season game, they will lose a lot of fans. I did not watch baseball after the 94 strike for 10 years. I love football, but can get plenty of it on Saturdays if the NFL screws this up. Millionaires vs. Billionaires. We Thousandaires are going to stop spending money on the NFL if they don’t fix this soon. Go Phillies!
I respectfully disagree Richcow
The NFL and the overall quality of play has been deterioating for the last 10 years.. Lost fundamentals in blocking & Tackling.. Way too many penalties and celebrations .. The game is a shell of itself and has been for a while and now is about to get worse.. This 2011 Season is just about screwed in my opinion..
Watch and this will be the year the Eagles win it all in a shortened and bogus season which most NFL Observors will put an asterik besides and most NFL Fans will care less …
