Will he stay or will he go?
Late last night, the Eagles were almost certain that safety Brian Dawkins had decided to fly the coop.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Dawkins had already agreed to a deal with Denver, thus supporting an ESPNews report saying the same thing.
But according to sources in Las Vegas, the San Francisco Chronicle report was taken from an Oakland Raiders blogger that was pissed off that Dawkins didn’t sign with the silver-and-black.
That’s like us reporting that Manny Ramirez is signing with the Yankees because he didn’t become a Phillie.
Furthermore, at 12:02 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, the NFL Network put up a graphic with the entire list of the Broncos’ busy day on Friday, including the signing of former Eagles running back Correll Buckhalter.
Dawkins, however, was inconspicuously absent from the list.
There are few people that know fully what’s happening with Dawkins, but the fact that the deal was reported yesterday and isn’t finalized today can only be good news for Eagles fans.
Maybe the team is making one last ditch shot to keep their most valuable player.
Reading these tea-leaves is like trying to figure out hieroglyphics while blindfolded.
