Sheldon Brown and Joe Banner had a meeting yesterday to discuss the current contract status Brown is under. I’m sure Brown and his agent made a pitch as to why Brown wants a new contract and I’m sure Banner listened. However, I’m also pretty sure Banner didn’t care about anything Brown or his agent had to say. The front office is taking a firm stance on Brown’s contract and they’re not going to budge.
I believe that Brown is going to have to shut up and play with the contract he has now, or he will be traded. If he can go out and prove something this year, maybe the Birds will consider something for next year, but I’m almost certain his contract will not change for this upcoming season.
If Brown were to be traded I feel the Eagles think they have enough talent at the cornerback position without him. I believe Asante and Hobbs would be the starters and the Eagles would expect youngsters Jack Ikegwuonu and Victor “Macho” Harris to jump into backup roles immediately.
