Our arch rival QB Eli Manningis now the highest paid annual player in the NFL, signing a 6-year 97 million dollar contract with the NY Giants today. Eli has won a Super Bowl, and is regarded as a very good QB in our league but Eli now is being paid more than players like LaDanian Tomlinson, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Kurt Warner, Donovan McNabb, just to name a few.
Eli is a good QB being paid great QB money. I personally do not think he deserves almost 100 million dollars. Eli has a lot of learning to do and is not even close to the best QB in the league.
Juqua Parker, DE for the Philadelphia Eagles was arrested near the Eagles training camp for possession of marijuana. Parker was riding in the passenger seat early Wednesday morning when a small amount of marijuana was found on him, Parker was then taken to Northhampton County Prison where he posted a $ 1,000 bail.
I’m positive Andy Reid will not be happy about this. The team has a training camp curfew of 1 a.m. and this took place about 27 minutes before curfew. Reid is aware of the situation and he said, “It’s in the law’s hands right now. As time goes on, I’ll know more.”
