Per Adam Schefter:

And more from Ian Rappppppoport:

Another Mountaineer to the Eagles? I’m good with that.

But first, Torrey Smith, who was due $5 million this season and seemed like an obvious salary cap casualty. He was entering year two of a three year, $15m deal. Smith was okay in the regular season but suffered some drops early before putting together a solid postseason run with 13 catches for 157 yards and a touchdown. The move paves the way for Mack Hollins to assume the Birds WR3 spot and clears a big chunk of money.

As for Daryl Worley, he was a third round pick in the 2016 draft, a Philly native and Penn Charter grad. The 23-year-old cornerback is heading into the third year of his rookie deal and hits the cap around $850,000, according to Overthecap.com:

 

So the Birds save more than $4m in the trade and add a young corner to the secondary.

Looks really good on paper, unless I missed something here. Howie Roseman does it again. I can’t believe someone took on Smith’s contract.

Worley can play a bit, but he’s still a bit raw. I’ll do a separate post on him, but here’s his game log from the 2017 season:

    My Album Drops June 19th

    How do I say goodbye to what we had?
    The good catches that made us cheer, outweighed the bad that maissed
    I thought you’d e with us forever, but forever was one year
    It’s so hard to say goodbye to Torrey Smith
    I don’t know where this road is gonna lead to.
    All I know is where we’ve been and what we’ve been through.
    If it gets me to tomorrow, I hope you wont call Philly fans trash
    It’s so hard to say goodbye to Torrey Smith
    And I’ll take with me the memories to be my sunshine after the rain.
    It’s so hard to say goodbye to Torrey Smith

    1. I really dislike that lady. She’s either singing or crying every call . Obviously has severe mental problems

  2. What’s with all the contributors jumping off Kyles sinking ship? Lefkoe said he couldn’t get away from this trainwreck fast enough. He played his hand well: Simms-Lefkoe is tremendous podcast that we are all now aware of thanks to his time here.

    Why are all the other guys leaving ? Disappointing T shirt sales? Would CBS3 give you your job back? I mean, nobody here cares about the Union.

    1. It’s like the Titantic – all anyone can do is try to find a raft. Kyle somehow swindled a cardiologist into giving him money for this site. Think about that.

      1. Upity is a term that was often used during the 1960s meant to put down African Americans.

        1. I was being sarcastic…or uppity…..*NOT* upity.
          Being a Harvard Grad its understandable that you don’t have a sense of humour.

  3. I know Torey reads this ‘blog’ 9 or 10 times a dya so……….

    ALL i can say is:
    Thanks for the flea flicker in the vikings game and the SB win!

    1. Sorry due to the over whelming request to Fuck Mikey Miss up the pipe, the show has been canceled.
