Russell Wilson switches agents; Leaves his football agent for a baseball agent?

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Russell Wilson has switched agents, leaving Bus Cook (a football agent) for a baseball agent?

In a memo the NFL sent teams today, it informed them that Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, eligible for a new deal after this season, is changing agents, per sources.

Another source said that Wilson is likely to go with his baseball agent, Mark Rodgers. Wilson did speak recently with his former NFL agent Bus Cook, and praised Cook but wanted to keep all his business with one agent, thus the change.

A source close to Wilson said Cook was not fired, but simply the quarterback was making a change.

This is an interesting turn of events.

Philadelphia needs to trade LeSean McCoy in the offseason

The Philadelphia Eagles are not using LeSean McCoy correctly. The guy should be damn near 1700 yards by now. They use him sparingly in Chip Kelly’s offense and obviously feel others are doing a better job.

According to CSN Philly’s Reuben Frank, Chris Polk received the first running back rep at Eagles practice on Wednesday, ahead of LeSean McCoy.

This is not good for a star like McCoy. While running backs have proven to be a dime a dozen in the NFL, the Eagles should try to land something from him.

I could see a team like San Francisco, Miami, Cleveland and many others showing interest. Shoot would you trade Shady for a draft pick?

Would you claim Ray McDonald from the waivers?

Today the San Francisco 49ers released Ray McDonald after local law authorities said they were investigating McDonald on suspicion of sexual assault.

The team had no choice but to let him go. This was their statement:

“This is about a pattern of poor behavior,” 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said Wednesday. “We expect a lot from our players, hold them accountable for their actions.”

No arrests have been made, nor have charges been filed. So I want to know would you claim him? Teams have a glaring need and he is still eligble to play. Could a team making a push sign him? McDonald screams Patriots to me, what about you?

Last year, Josh McCown was better than Jay Cutler and thanks to Marc Trestman he landed a nice contract from Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Well now he is going to try to work wonders. He is starting Jimmy Clausen over Cutler.
