Linebacker Jeremiah Trotter has agreed to a one-year contract with his old team, the Philadelphia Eagles, according to the team. Trotter was one of the most inspirational players on the team and he helped lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl appearance. He was released before the '07 season in a move that caused quarterback Donovan McNabb to take a few jabs at management.
To make room for Trotter, the Eagles released reserve quarterback Jeff Garcia, who'd been brought in while McNabb was injured and Michael Vick was suspended. The Eagles were going to have to release one of their quarterbacks and Garcia was the obvious choice -- especially after the way Kevin Kolb performed in his starts.
I'm kind of surprised, but not overly surprised. I figured Garcia was going to be the starter if McNabb went down though.

Eh Garcia was just an insurance policy if Kevin Kolb really sucked...with Donovan coming back it doesnt seem necessary to have 4 quarterbacks on the roster.

I'd like the Rams to give Garcia a look since Bulger went down.

Not surprised at all, didn't expect to stick around when McNabb was ready to come back. Trotter is a good signing, he had some of his best years with the Eagles and even though he's the player he once was, he'll help that Eagles defense.

I'm sure the Bucs are going to wait to see how Josh Johnson does.

There are rumors that the Raiders are looking at him again.

If I'm Garcia I would tell the Raiders to go fuck themselves after they released him for no reason. But that's me.

you know delhomme could use some help *snickers* and seattles QB has broken ribs as well. I really don't know why they just couldn't wait the allotted time for Vick to be available. Ya Kolb sux but he's their sucky player.

..because Vick's on a 2-year contract with the Eagles..

..and how does Kolb suck? Yeah, he threw 3 picks in his first start, but he's thrown for back to back 300 yards games and has been huge trying to help the Eagles while McNabbs out.


and here's who are supposedly out there for Garcia

Interested: Dolphins?, Patriots?, Panthers?, Buccaneers?, Raiders?

ya Vicks on a 2 year contract but they didnt NEED Garcia now. They actually don't really need him in 2 years either. And the 2nd year with the Eagles is actually only an option at this point. It was sign 1 year with an option for a 2nd.
