    Eagles just release Wil Witherspoon

    I guess we made a good deal.

    We got a pick and B.Gibson and he is a free-agent if we want him back



    Cheers to Billy D --- now lets do something in free agency !!!!


    ....trying to be patient.....lol

    Re: Eagles just release Wil Witherspoon

    FWIW, the players that the Rams let go since Spags/Devaney took over:

    Orlando Pace: Lasted 1 season in Chicago, cut
    Torry Holt: Lasted 1 season in Jacksonville, cut
    Richie Incognito: Lasted a partial season in Buffalo, not tendered
    Will Witherspoon: Lasted 1 season in Philadelphia, cut
    Chris Draft: Lasted partial season in Buffalo, not re-signed

    Maybe they actually know what they are doing... what a concept!

    (Note: by contrast, two players who were let go by the prior regime - Scott Shanle and Tony Hargrove - started for the Super Bowl Champs)

    Weird. Was he on the books for a lot of money? He played really well for the Eagles last year.

    That IS interesting, Av. Another one that the previous regime let get away was Ryan Pickett, while keeping Jimmy Kennedy. I never did figure that one out.

    So, what do you guys think? Should we be making a run at Will Witherspoon again? Does he still have it?

    Don't forget another player the last regime let go was Madison Hedgecock who won a SB with the Giants 2 years ago.

    Do you think the Rams will bring Witherspoon back?

    Go Rams!

    Re: Eagles Release Will Witherspoon!

    Quoting Howard Balzer on Twitter...

    The Eagles did not release LB Will Witherspoon today, but it is still expected to happen within the next few days.
    about 1 hours ago via web
    Guess we did okay in that trade after all?

    Re: Eagles just release Wil Witherspoon

    This does surprise me indeed, every tiem i saw him play he was makign things happen out there for them.

    I would hope that some of the goofs on here that jump on the "OMG Rams are Stoopid" train every time they THINK a bad move was made, would finally chill. There have actually been very few moves the Rams have done since Despags has come that turned out to go ill for them. Some questionable coaching decisions but I don't think none were awful, just conservative.

    Maybe just maybe there is a reason we don't coach and scout players and Spags and co. do?

    Re: Eagles just release Wil Witherspoon

    Lewis was released (not resigned?) in Carolina also.

    This was a VERY interesting portion of the Eagles article I read:

    "Gibson had 34 receptions for 348 yards and a touchdown in eight games with the Rams. Over the last eight weeks of the season, no rookie had more receptions than Gibson. Michael Crabtree also had 34, and Jeremy Maclin had 30."

    But remember, the Rams have done NOTHING to improve this team in the last two years.
