The Philadelphia Eagles have a problem that any National Football League team would love to have.
For all you Eagles fans out there, that should make you extra happy: Not only did your favorite team win the Super Bowl, but they also threw a giant wrench into the release timeline for Brady's documentary. Nick Foles is not for every team, and so it'd be hard to say what the compensation was. "Gratitude to the Philadelphia Eagles team and organization for bringing out the best in us and being gracious winners (as well as congratulations on winning the championship)", he wrote. Unplanned celebrations on the night of the Super Bowl saw Commissioner Ross get hit in the head with a bottle. I would demand at least a 2nd round pick for him, and perhaps another late round pick. "I'm just so elated to be here". This way they would be in good shape as the parade came past.
It's been a tremendous year for the Eagles.
At least the officers didn't then ask him for an autograph afterward. And the number one feeling I have had the past 4 days is gratitude. My guess is he would reject it, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
The best thing Philadelphia can do is hold on to Foles until they are absolutely sure Wentz is completely healthy. They are now about 9 million over the cap for next year. They'll probably start by signing some of their key components to this year's team, like Linebacker Nigel Bradham. Even though he won MVP, I do not believe he was the main reason they won last weekend.

So just how will the Eagles approach the 2018 offseason?
The Eagles lost their 2nd round pick in the Wentz trade and their 3rd round pick to get Darby.
With the ad, AB&C wanted to showcase the Eagle's ability to "silence 'non-believers.'" Agencies traditionally show their best during the Super Bowl, including paying $5 million for a 30-second commercial aired during the game. Rookie contracts are cheap and cap friendly and the Eagles could use to add picks in this year's draft and in the future. But for now they are champions. Center Jason Kelce walked the parade route in an outlandishly sequined Mummers getup - a nod to Philadelphia's raucous annual parade on New Year's Day - slapping fans' hands and leading them in a profane chant broadcast on live TV.
We've already heard the stories of how the Birds ran the "Philly Special" only in the ballroom of the team hotel to ensure it wasn't seen by anyone.
They have to make a decision on what they're going to do at the quarterback spot as far as keeping the backup there.More news: Kendrick Lamar And Kings Of Leon To Headline Reading And Leeds Festival
