Cleveland Browns offered Weaver more money than Birds
Cleveland's new team president, Mike Holmgren, who coached Weaver at Seattle, and the Browns presented a contract proposal worth more than the Eagles' deal.
But Weaver told agent Harold Lewis to do a deal with the Eagles, that the Philly area was his new home and he valued stability. Weaver thinks the 3-year, $11 million deal ($6.5 million guaranteed) he signed Friday was fair.
That means three more years of Weaver helping youths 11-to-15 to read and write. He did that almost every day off this past season for students from the Bonsall School in Camden, N.J.
