Incredibly, Spending the Night in a Minnesota Winter Didn't Convince Him

News Item: TJ Houshmanzadeh signs with Seahawks

The Vikings sure tried, giving him the private jet/limo treatment, but alas it wasn't to be. This followed a bizarre period in which TJ went on the radio in multiple cities, including Philly, and to get the fans' hopes up that his signing was imminent. I'd say whatever agent came up with that is more worthy of his commission than, say, Scott Boras for Manny Ramirez.

Speaking of the Eagles, they lost Brian Dawkins over the weekend, and the fan base is in shock. Yes, they probably should've found a way to keep him, and most likely let him go not over money but rather the unwillingness to offer a second year. A massive PR hit, to be sure, but the Eagles have a good record of getting rid of veterans at exactly the right time.

Troy Vincent, Hugh Douglas and Jeremiah Trotter were all let go at the "right time"? To the Eagles, the "right time" is a player's 30th or 31st birthday. Eagles have no sense of cohesion and refuse to address the real problem with the team - Donovan should never have waited this long to demand "weapons".
