So long "Donnie Longball": Donnie Jones announces retirement

So long

If you walk into the NovaCare Complex and go up the stairs, through a short hallway with historical photos of the franchise's past on the walls, take a left at the atrium, and then a right after another short hallway, you would walk directly into the office of Howie Roseman. "He's incredibly smart, athletic, he has a good frame and can make all of the throws". He took over the defensive play-calling chores when Hicks went down. "We're excited about him and seeing him in a full offseason with our coaching staff".

Bears hire Childress • The Chicago Bears hired former Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress as an offensive consultant and finalized new coach Matt Nagy's staff. They might be defending Super Bowl champions, but they're trying to build a roster that can repeat. He has one year left on his contract but is eligible to be extended at any time - unlike Wentz, who must wait until after the 2018 season, his third in the National Football League, to get an extension.

Even with a lot of free-agent, trade and draft options, it's clear that Foles can be had - but it's equally as clear that they have no intentions of just giving him away either. They are without a second or third round pick right now. "Again, I'm a big believer you just don't blindside a player like that, if that happens". He has great character, great leadership.

"That [quarterback] room is exactly what we're looking for".

In October 2017, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson praised Jones for helping Philadelphia win the field-position battle.

With punter Donnie Jones' announced retirement Tuesday, the Eagles are about $7.625 million over the projected salary cap, per overthecap.com, but Roseman - who once prided himself on maintaining enough cap space annually to outbid the competition for impactful free agents - suggested that he is not willing to swap production for salary relief.

Consequently, they are not expected to be hasty in moving Foles, if at all.

"I think our goal when we manage the cap is to put together a good team, I think that's really kind of our overriding philosophy on our cap". But when the line of questioning later deepened as to whether the Eagles could trade Foles, Pederson said, "We'll see how this things unfolds". We have our franchise quarterback (Carson Wentz), who is working his butt off every day to come back better than ever. He had three sacks in a game three times last season, against the Giants, Bengals and Packers.

In the eyes of the Eagles' decision-makers, the 2018 season has started now that they're here for the scouting combine.

These comments would suggest that the team is possibly open to trading Foles. Before coming to the Eagles, Jones spent one season with the Houston Texans. Maybe they can find some more of those this year. We're not going to get into the day-by-day, incremental [updates] ... "Some of the moves we made were with that in mind".

"So, going forward, we have to make sure we have the resources in place where we have more draft picks". "We have to improve our football team".

This is the nature of the business. We've got a lot of areas that we have to address.
