It became official late last night. The deal is worth $24 million over three years with $16 million guaranteed, according to Forbes’ Darren Heitner. This should pretty much set off sports talk radio today– an Eagle, in his prime, going to a division rival for nothing. Here’s the thing, though: Does anyone else find it odd that only the Redskins and Raiders were reportedly interested in DeSean? Like, could you have found two more screwed up organizations willing to take a chance?
Former Eagles exec Andrew Brandt explains:
As for the Birds? They lost DeSean (which hurts) and added Jeremy Maclin, Darren Sproles and, maybe, a top-two-round wide receiver (Mike Evans?) to what was the second best offense in the league last year. The net loss is much smaller than you think. And, really, do you expect DeSean in Washington to not end in some ridiculous fashion?
