It is reported that the Eagles have reached out to at least one other organization in regards to a trade involving Pro Bowl guard Shawn Andrews. Everyone knows about the mental problems Andrews went through prior to last season and the saga that was. However, many people believed (including myself) that one of the biggest reason the Eagles brought in Shawn’s brother, Stacy, was to try and bring a level of comfort to him and avoid problems like the ones that happened last year.
Maybe the Eagles know something that we don’t about Shawn Andrews. It is possible that they feel that he is still unstable mentally. It could also be possible that they are happy with Nick Cole’s play and believe he can play in place of Andrews. Another rumor being speculated is that he is going to get the “Sheldon Brown” disease and start being unhappy with his contract. Like Brown, Andrews signed a similar long term contact at an early age. He is signed through 2015.
After this was speculated upon, it was taken back by the same source (Daily News), saying that the Eagles aren’t actually shopping Andrews. This is an odd story and I will have to report back upon it when there is some clarity.
