It's funny how only Cowboys fans are laughing and making fun of this move both in this thread and the one in the Eagles Forum. I think they're still just angry over passing on CJ2K for Felix a few years ago.


I'm not making fun of the Eagles for this. I doubt Felix will even make the final 53 man roster. It was a zero risk signing by Philly.

Good move, even if he completely sucks in preseason there's no risk.

The Eagles dont NEED him, so if he doesnt bring anything to their team, then its no skin off their back. No risk here at all.
Exactly. I thought it wasn't a bad move at all.

Most of the Cowboy fans are though. I understand you guys wasted a first round pick on him and he was often injured. Still was a pretty decent player when healthy though. He's not being asked to be our starter or our backup. He'll be our 3rd back/KR. To me it's a very good pickup for us.

This.

So silly when people start overreacting like we've given him $20M guaranteed. This is a no lose situation.

I remember when Cowboy fans swore he was the best back from that class and would soon overtake McFadden and Johnson. Good times.

Good move early in camp incase of injury. Also since McCoy probably won't get a ton of work in preseason, we could use the extra depth.

I'm told by a league source Felix Jones' deal is minimum-salary-benefit, so $715,000 base plus likely $65,000 RB and $555,000 cap hit.

I could see Chip Kelly using him really well.

Felix Jones gets $32.5 K guaranteed (SB) in his 1-year deal with the Eagles, per source. $32.5 K more if he's on the 46-man roster game 1

You know that your days in the NFL are rapidly coming to an end when the most expensive new car you can buy outright with the guaranteed money from your free agent deal is a Buick.

I liked him his first year. Then for whatever reason all semblence of speed and elusiveness was lost...
