Donovan gets morning off, Eli a $97.5 million extension, and Lurie will address it
No surprise here. Andy Reid began giving those vets every third training camp practice off last year.
What is at least mildly surprising is the commitment the Giants made to quarterback Eli Manning.
Manning, 28, got a six-year $97.5 million contract extension, making him and his brother Peyton of the Colts the two highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL.
Contrast that with McNabb, who didn't get an extension, the vet and the Eagles spinning the restructuring of the final two years of his contract providing a modest $5.3 million raise the prudent thing to do.
Does anyone out there think Manning, without Plaxico Burress, is a remotely better quarterback than McNabb? Thank you.
Does Manning deserve that much more of a commitment than McNabb based - at this point 0 on being four years younger?
But Manning has something McNabb probably won't get with the Eagles - a Super Bowl ring.
Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie can put it all in perspective for he gives his state of the Eagles address after the morning practice.
