Default I know it's early, but TE will be interesting this summer

I'm thinking that Burton wants to get paid. He turned down a 2 year contract with the Eagles last year so I think that we will most likely lose him. Celek is really up in the air because there's no way the Eagles can pay him what he's scheduled to make. I'm sure the Eagles will encourage him to retire but let's face it, he'll make at least a million bucks playing somewhere if he wants to as a backup and you can't make that kind of money anyplace else. The gamble on All World Ertz (He has now earned that title!) sure paid off though (Nice move Howie!!). None of this is a newsflash but we just might have the replacements in house with recent players signed.

I thought Brown was really interesting and had a good shot to make it if we wanted to carry 4 TEs last season. He was a real good athlete with nice size despite playing D11 football. He could be ready.

Zaruba the Canadian rugby player was also impressive I thought in the exhibition games. I wonder what he'll look like this summer and if he's learned more about the game? I would think that he would have had to go to some type of clinic for that. Didn't he catch on with Jacksonville for a while after we let him go? He didn't stick with them though and signed with us so this is probably a huge long shot. We had another TE in camp too that caught the few passes that got thrown to him and was a pretty good blocker too but I can't remember his name. I see a Josh Perkins that we signed but I'm pretty sure that it wasn't him.

Nice ballplayer I'm sure. I'm surprised McSorley hasn't been mentioned as one of the top QBs. Is he in this year's draft?

I think he's better than the 2 Pac10 guys. I'm sure that he knows what he's doing.

For some reason I think Burton is back. Of course for some reason I believe the Eagles win the SB every year and the Phils win the WS.

Well he made $2.81 million this year because he signed a 2nd round tendered deal. I know that the Eagles offered him a 2 year deal and he turned it down but I don't know how much it was for. I have no idea what his market value is, but I would think that he is probably a starting caliber TE. Maybe the fact that Celek made $7 million last year pissed him off, after all they all talk to each other. It seems the position is filled with stars these days so I don't know where he fits. It's like every team has one. I've got a link of TE salaries attached so maybe you can make some sense of it and can figure out what it would take to sign him. I'm thinking that they are going to spend any money that they have someplace else but who the heck knows?
