This whole Mike Patterson saga is a travesty. From Les Bowen:
"Winning teams don't do this to their classiest players," [Patterson's agent Peter] Schaffer said Wednesday...
Schaffer said general manager Howie Roseman's reasoning was, "Well, what did we get out of him this year?" Schaffer said he asked Roseman what he got out of quarterback Michael Vick, scheduled to make $12.5 million this year, or recently released defensive end Jason Babin, who carried a $5 million base salary number.
Asked to respond, the Eagles issued the following statement: "Our number one priority is to get Mike Patterson well enough to get back on the football field. He has worked hard this year to get back and he has our full support as an organization."
