    Dude, it was put to bed after we passed on him last year and drafted Ware. It's you who keeps waking that tired story up.

    That's a market deal for Howard.

    I think he'll be a good signing for Philthy....unfortunately.

    Carolina is also quietly making some very good additions.

    Trent Cole is actually the best name in that lineup, IMO.
    He's gonna be good.

    You know what ...I started to notice Cole during the last part of 2005 -- he was a breath of fresh air in a very rough 2005 season. He's an exciting player.

    So much for Howard to Dallas - its put to bed.
    There's a two edged sword to your statement, waking things up? Geez - that never happens on this board:rolleyes:

    This is todays news as Eagles overpaid for the guy and signed him. Player suspended last year and wicked overrated. Good luck Eagles!!!!!!!

    That old avatar (which will be back) is none other than Hank Scorpio. Not a comic book character, but a Simpsons character.

    Its the greatest Simpsons episode ever and a must see for any Cowboys fan. Homer buys Tom Landry's hat and says his dream is to someday own the Dallas Cowboys.

    My new theory on Kyle Kosier.

    BP: Hey Procter, you are quite a player. Know anyone else up there in Detroit like you?

    Procter: Kyle Kosier.

    here you go, they actually paid him MORE than he wanted:

    Eagles sign former Saints defensive end HowardBy John Clayton
    ESPN.com


    Free agent defensive end Darren Howard agreed to a six-year, $30.5 million deal Sunday night with the Philadelphia Eagles. Included in the deal was a $9.5 million signing bonus and a $1 million roster bonus, topping guarantees offered by his team of six years, the New Orleans Saints.


    Howard

    Howard had turned down a $10 million signing bonus to sign a long-term deal from the Saints in 2005, hoping to do better in the next free agency period. His instincts turned out to be right.

    Howard will work on the other side of Jevon Kearse, giving the Eagles one of the best one-two defensive end tandems in the NFL.

    The Saints had franchised Howard the past couple of years to try to keep him with the team on one-year deals but decided to let him hit the free agency market. The Eagles called him as free agency began and enticed him by offering $4 million a year and $7 million to sign.

    After he decided to visit Philadelphia on Sunday, Howard received a better offer and more up front and wasted no time in agreeing to the deal.

    Howard had 33 tackles and 3.5 sacks for the Saints in 2005. Drafted by New Orleans in the second round of the 2000 draft from Kansas State, Howard has 262 career tackles, 44.5 sacks and two interceptions.

    No, it wasn't comic book guy. It was Hank Scorpio. Played by Albert Brooks. He was a guy trying to take over the world, ended up fighting a James Bond-type character....

    Anyway, no biggie. Its football season now! Good morning back at ya!

    Not at all, if he revives his career under Jim Johnson then we'll be talking about it again, no doubt. I tend to agree with you, though, Howard's better days are behind him. Not a typical Eagles' signing, a sign perhaps that they are reaching in a bad free agent crop.

    Howard is a good football player. I hoped he wouldn't sign with Philly. That's a good signing.

    I'm also hearing rumors the Eagles are contemplating paying Owens the bonus, and trading him. That would be a bold move. I doubt they'd follow through.
