Fitzgerald says he would play for Eagles IF trade develops?
The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

Wow didn't know that's how much money he was going to make.
That's waaaay too much for a WR that is not even top 3 in the league.
well alot of his contract was incentive laden, he wasnt signed to all this money, but since he hit almost all and more of his incentives, now they have no choice but to go broke paying him or let him walk well before he is 30...
His original contract was actually decent, but he earned alot more over the few years

I guarantee that if someone picks Cam Newton in the Top 5 they will regret it.
Much of the incentives and escalators were built in as "unlikely to be earned". Fitz has outperformed even the stellar expectations they had of him out of Pitt. He screwed them by being so dominant. Now, they're hemming and hawing about his cap figure (which they should), and they don't know how to handle it. Fitz has little reason to walk away from $30mm guaranteed over 2 years.
I don't think Fitzgerald wants to go to a team in a smaller market, and I don't think he wants to be a part of a rebuilding effort. He probably wants to win a ring or make the playoffs in a big area that will give him the dough.
