Nick Foles remains in Philadelphia with a restructured deal. But with Carson Wentz returning, it begs the question of how long the Super Bowl MVP will stay around as a backup?
While promoting his new book, http://www.packershopnfl.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_MIKE_DANIELS_JERSEY.html Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure, and Deacon Jones Jersey Overcoming the Odds, Foles appeared on FS1 sounding as if he expects to play elsewhere by next season.
Thus, Foles is rooting for Wentz to stay healthy — and in the starting lineup — all season. That obviously would leave Foles on the bench all season.
Carson is a tremendous player, Foles said. He’s going to be a great player in this league for a long time. I think just having those open discussions in the locker room, starting with your friendship first and then your teammates and genuinely caring for one another. When he’s out there, he knows I’m not like vying for him to get hurt or something like that. I want him to succeed. I want him to stay healthy the entire season. I want him to have a great career. Even at the expense of me not playing. But that’s where I’ve got to put my ego aside and say, ‘Hey, this is what’s best for the team.’ I can still be a leader in the locker room but just in my lane. That’s very important. It becomes tricky. You know how it is. It gets a little tricky.
I don’t know where he gets that from. As long as I’ve been here, I’ve never bragged before or after a game, Cooper said at the time.
It appears Cooper http://www.ramsofficialsonline.com/Deacon_Jones_Jersey_Cheap had every right to be confused. Norman told NASCAR driver Ryan Blaney on his Mike Daniels Youth Jersey Glass Case of Emotion podcast that a teammate conned him into thinking Cooper and Crabtree had made boisterous claims they never made. Norman said it was a Redskins defensive lineman than went to Alabama that told him of the comments Cooper and Crabtree never made. The only player that fits that bill is Jonathan Allen.
Basically, I found out that he lied to me about the whole thing. So I’m like, ‘He didn’t say all that?’ Norman said, via Mark Inabinett of AL.com.
Norman said Allen replied: Nah, man. I just really wanted to win, man.
For Norman it was the equivalent of disparaging water to Bobby Boucher.
