If that is true, that's why they traded him....
And no way he's coming back.
And I'm also hearing that Philly didn't want him playing the wide 9 anymore so they could play the run better...He refused...
Wth kind of $^i# is that?
That makes perfect sense. He was never any good at doing anything but getting after the QB. If he had been used as a situational pass rusher for his entire career, he could be one of those guys that stuck around as depth on a roster for a dozen years. But being drafted in the first round killed that, and it sounds like his ego/attitude/maturity won't let him properly assess his own place in the NFL.
I think Hugh Douglas is right - he's done in the NFL.
