The Browns wanted Nick Foles [url=http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/jourdan-lewis-jersey]Jourdan Lewis Jersey[/url] , offering the 35th overall pick to the Eagles for the Super Bowl LII MVP, Mike Silver of NFL Media reports. The Eagles presented the deal to Foles [url=http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/sean-taylor-jersey]Sean Taylor Jersey[/url] , who said he would prefer to remain in Philadelphia.
That started the dominoes falling another way.
The Eagles reworked Foles’ deal, giving him a $2 million bonus and incentives that allow him to earn up to $14 million. He also now has a mutual option to remain in Philadelphia in 2019.
The spurned Browns turned to Plan B [url=http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/dean-lowry-jersey]http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/dean-lowry-jersey[/url] , sending a third-round pick to the Bills for Tyrod Taylor. Cleveland then drafted Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall choice.
The Eagles still could trade Foles before the October 30 deadline if Carson Wentz has returned to form. Philadelphia’s starting quarterback was on the practice field Tuesday, although he didn’t participate in team activities as he continues to rehab his left knee.
Wentz’s goal is to start the September 6 season opener against the Falcons.
The Minnesota Vikings will induct former head coach Dennis Green into their Ring of Honor this season.
The Vikings announced Monday they'll hold a halftime ceremony with Green's family during their Sept. 23 game against Buffalo. Green died at age 67 in 2016.
His record over 10 seasons was 101-70 [url=http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/ibraheim-campbell-jersey]Ibraheim Campbell Jersey[/url] , including eight trips to the playoffs. Only Bud Grant has more wins in franchise history. The Vikings won four division titles and reached the NFC championship game twice under his guidance, setting what was then the NFL single-season scoring record with 556 points in 1998.
Green was also credited with initiating a culture of regular community service by players on their Tuesdays off from practice during the season.
He's the 24th member of the Vikings' Ring of Honor .
