Good news for Bird fans. Brian Westbrook has signed the tender offer from the Eagles worth approximately 1.4 million for this coming season.
Unlike Terrell Owens, Westbrook has never threatened to sit out of training camp if a long term deal was not reached. The Eagles didn't ink BWest to a long term deal, but sured up their backfield for the coming season.
Westbrook is the teams most versatile offensive weapon and a vital part of their offense. His signing today is great news. It's nice to see a player refrain from bitching about being underpaid, which 1.4 million may be for a player of BWest's caliber, and accept his money and report to camp to help out the team. BWest is a like-able guy, and I would love to see him get a long term deal here, but I am not going to question A.R. and Joe Banner on their personel moves if they get us back to the Superbowl.
What a week it's been for Chris Christie.
After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."
He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list.
"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said.
(Three fire emojis).
"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.
He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.
It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.
The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."
Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right?
Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:
After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:
[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.
