Four-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter will be job-hunting in the coming days after being released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday.



Trotter

A nine-year veteran, Trotter was informed of his status in a meeting with coach Andy Reid. The Eagles suggested that the now-unrestricted free agent consider retirement, but the 30-year-old's preference is to continue playing in the league. Trotter's release will become official when his name appears on the NFL's internal transactions wire this afternoon.


"Jeremiah is one of my favorite guys," Reid said in a statement Tuesday. "There's no question that this is the toughest part of this job. He and I met about this [Monday] night and it was very emotional for the both of us. Jeremiah and I have been together for many years and he's played a vital role in helping this team win a lot of football games."

The departure of Trotter continues a shakeup to Philadelphia's linebacker corps. It is now likely that two-time Pro Bowl player Takeo Spikes, acquired from the Buffalo Bills in a March trade, will take over the middle linebacker spot. Spikes has primarily worked at the weakside position in training camp.

Eagles officials have worked hard to create depth and competition in the linebacker corps, and have a number of young players the coaches want to work into the lineup.

This marks the second time the Eagles have essentially released Trotter. In the spring of 2002, Philadelphia designated him as a franchise player, and subsequently rescinded the tag, making him a free agent. Trotter then signed with Washington, where he played two seasons before being released after the 2003 campaign.

In 2004, Trotter contacted Reid, with whom he had parted on shaky terms, to see if he might rejoin the Eagles. He returned to the team that brought him into the league as a third-round pick in the 1998 draft and earned a Pro Bowl berth in his first year back.

A former Stephen F. Austin star, Trotter is one of just four linebackers in Eagles' history to earn four or more Pro Bowl invitations. He joins Hall of Fame member Chuck Bednarik, Maxie Baughan and Bill Bergey in that select group.

In 131 games with the Eagles (1998-2001, 2004-2006) and Redskins (2002-2003), Trotter has 1,184 tackles, 12˝ sacks and nine interceptions. He has notched 100 or more tackles in seven seasons, and 150-plus tackles five times, and had 202 stops in 1999.

Trotter has three years left on his contract, at base salaries of $2.635 million (2007), $2.72 million (2008) and $3.28 million (2009). His release was not a salary cap move, however, since the Eagles are comfortably under the $109 million ceiling.

Britt Reid charged again over behavior

Store clerks at d*ck's Sporting Goods took one look at Britt Reid and knew something wasn't right.
He stumbled around the Plymouth Township store for more than two hours as if lost, clerks told police.

Slurring his words and visibly shaking, Reid told them he was going on a camping trip and wanted to buy a bow and arrow, authorities said.

"He wasn't speaking in complete sentences and confusing himself," store employee Aaron Wilson told police.

Clerk Paul Blank said Reid appeared "medicated."

Actually, the 22-year-old son of Eagles Coach Andy Reid was overmedicated, lab results revealed.

Yesterday, as authorities charged Reid with DUI and an a.ssortment of misdemeanors, a sad portrait of a deeply troubled young man emerged.

In addition to the more than 30 pills found in Reid's pockets, police uncovered 237 1/2 pills in his truck. Some were carelessly littered on the floor of the truck. Others were stashed in plastic baggies. A prescription pill bottle contained 75 tablets of diazepam, or Valium. The label read "Britt Reid," along with a warning: May cause drowsiness. Use care when operating a car.

Turns out, Reid had prescriptions for all but one of those pills -- a single tablet of the opiate hydrocodone, authorities said.

He wasn't dealing. He was doping, authorities suspect.

"I think what you have is somebody who has prescription medication prescribed for him and he is overmedicating," said Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr.

Though Reid had prescriptions for amphetamines and Valium, the amount of those "uppers" and "downers" found in his bloodstream were "beyond therapeutic levels," Castor said.

Castor also noted that police found a smoking pipe that tested positive for marijuana residue inside Reid's truck. They also discovered a rolled-up $10 bill with white residue. Lab tests confirmed the powdery substance was crushed Valium. He did not test positive for marijuana, Castor said.

"Obviously, that's not the way [Valium] is designed to be taken if you are crushing them up and snorting them up your nose," Castor said.

Castor, who has recused himself from the case because of a close friendship with one of Reid's lawyers, said it's now up to prosecutors with the state attorney general's office to answer lingering questions about whether the prescriptions were appropriate.

Dr. Ronald Schwerzler, an Oregon-based expert on addiction medicine, said some doctors will prescribe Valium and amphetamines to help patients who are suffering from withdrawal symptoms, though such prescriptions can "do more harm than good" because they're addictive. Schwerzler said the medications prescribed to Reid seem "over the top."

Reid recently told a judge that he had enrolled in an outpatient rehab program. He apparently is taking medications commonly used to treat drug or alcohol withdrawal.

But when Reid drove to d*ck's Sporting Goods last Thursday afternoon, he was so drugged up on a c*cktail of prescription pills that he couldn't find his truck when he exited the store, court records show.

Tabitha McDaniel, the store clerk who called police, watched Reid "aimlessly wandering" around the parking lot.

"McDaniel stated that Reid attempted to locate his vehicle by using the car remote," the police complaint says. "She stated that the vehicle, a large Dodge pickup truck, was approximately 15 to 20 feet in front of him and he still, apparently, could not find it."

Once he found the truck, it took him three tries to successfully climb behind the wheel, she said.

Police arrived and gave Reid a sobriety test. He had trouble reciting the alphabet and standing on one leg, the complaint states.

At the time, Reid was out on $100,000 bail while awaiting sentencing in a Jan. 30 road-rage case in which he pulled a gun on another motorist and later was caught with small amounts of cocaine and marijuana in the SUV he was driving. He pleaded guilty to several offenses in that case.

After the episode at d*ck's, a judge revoked his bail in the road-rage case, and he was jailed at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in Lower Providence Township.

Yesterday afternoon, two detectives escorted Reid from the jail to the District Court in Conshohocken, where he appeared in a pinstriped suit for a preliminary arraignment on charges of DUI, careless driving, reckless driving, drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and failing to keep prescription drugs in proper containers.

He was greeted by a mob of television cameras and reporters. A news helicopter flew overhead.

The scene prompted Reid's attorneys, Ross Weiss and William J. Winning, to look on in obvious disgust. Allentown resident Brent Bybee, 55, came to court to pay a parking fine and exclaimed, "You got some kind of mass murderer in here today?"

Two Eagles fans, adorned in Eagles jerseys, showed up to get a peek at Reid. As he was led out of the court building, Tom Howard gave him a thumbs-up to show support, while his wife, Debra Winsey-Howard, issued a thumbs-down.

"He's embarrassed his family and embarrassed the fans of the Eagles," Winsey-Howard said.

"To be honest, not to sound selfish, I hope it doesn't affect the team at all," said her husband.

District Court Judge Francis J. Bernhardt III set bail at $5,000 cash and sent Reid back to jail with a fatherly, "Good luck to you, OK?"

Reid would only be able to post bail in the new case if the judge in the road-rage case reverses the bail revocation in that case.

In an earlier news conference, Castor said that perhaps jail would help sober Reid.

"It may turn out that this is the best thing that could have happened to Mr. Reid," Castor said.

"Now he's in a controlled setting and can receive the medical treatment that he currently needs." *

GREAT ARTICLE ON DMAC


Lightning rod of criticism


By Charles Robinson, Yahoo! Sports
September 4, 2007



BETHLEHEM, Pa. – It was a typical early August day at training camp for the Philadelphia Eagles, and it had brought the usual summer swirl of media. Amateur doctors by trade, many had passed through to eye Donovan McNabb's surgically repaired knee and ponder whether he was walking with a limp, was looking right, or in some cases, whether he'd ever be the same player again.

That night, as McNabb and defensive end Jevon Kearse flopped down on couches in the players lounge before heading out to a local sports bar, Kearse looked at the quarterback and shook his head.

"Man, I love my job," Kearse told McNabb. "I love the stuff I get. I like the recognition. And sometimes I think I have it hard with little stuff that happens here and there. But you. Man, I could not be you. You get a whole lotta (stuff). I don't ever want that."

Recounted to him later, Kearse's words prompted McNabb to muster a soft laugh.

"Story of my life," he said.

More accurately, this is the story of McNabb's life in the city of Philadelphia. And it is a tome flush with dark, highly publicized chapters. He's been booed on draft day and labeled a "company man" by former teammate Freddie Mitchell. He's been trashed on national television by Rush Limbaugh and incinerated by Terrell Owens. He's even been criticized for his mother's opinion.

Indeed, while all NFL quarterbacks have to deal with the steady burn of the spotlight, McNabb's tenure has been the essence of controversy. Despite being one of the league's most successful signal-callers over the last eight years, he's also become arguably the most consistent lightning-rod athlete in the NFL since the turn of the millennium. But as essayist William Hazlitt one wrote, "When a thing ceases to be the subject of controversy, it ceases to be a subject of interest." Framed in that light, McNabb might be the most interesting sports figure the city of Philadelphia has ever seen.

LOW-KEY PROFILE

What Frank Lenti can't understand is how one of the most affable athletes he's ever coached has become such a hotly debated entity. When the Mount Carmel High School football coach looks at Donovan Jamal McNabb, he still sees the same bouncing, gregarious kid that he coached on Chicago's south side almost 15 years ago.

McNabb was rarely, if ever, the one to raise the ire of the coaching staff. Playing at an all-boys Catholic high school, he didn't get into any more trouble than any other teenaged kid. Even in the framework of the team he rarely caused waves, patiently waiting his turn as a backup sophomore quarterback on a state championship team, then ascending to a nationally recruited prospect as a junior and senior.

About the only buzz orbiting McNabb in those days was whether he could find a college that would allow him to develop as a pocket quarterback. And even then, once Syracuse was chosen, the only hullabaloo on the coaching staff was a few friendly wagers centering on how long it would take Donovan to draw Heisman Trophy consideration in college.

"He never did anything to negatively attract attention to himself," Lenti said. "He always worked hard and even with his talent, he was always one of the guys. There was never any controversy at all. Never."

Even now, Lenti has a hard time grasping where it all comes from; why McNabb bears the brunt of so much criticism. Maybe he would understand if McNabb were a loudmouth or a basket case or a player who couldn't cut it at the NFL level. But McNabb has been none of those things. Despite the money and stature he's acquired, he's retained a remarkably low profile in his private life.

While the dating and mating habits of Tom Brady and the marital bliss of Brett Favre have been discussed ad-nauseam by the national media, few outside of Philadelphia know that McNabb married his first college love, Raquel. And while Peyton Manning's exploits during Hurricane Katrina became a national headline, McNabb's league-leading work with the United Way and his own foundation to f!ght diabetes have been a footnote.

This is what Lenti sees. The kid that made good, made millions, and then grew into the man who would visit Mount Carmel High and spend time sitting with Lenti's secretary, Peggy Kienzle, before she passed several years ago. And the same kid that proved he could make it as a pocket passing quarterback despite only Syracuse offering to groom him in that type of system.

In fact, McNabb's success has been almost unparalleled since he entered the league. He's been far and away the jewel of the 1999 quarterback class, a group that included five first-round picks: McNabb, Tim Couch, Akili Smith, Cade McNown and Daunte Culpepper. Beyond McNabb and the roller-coaster career of Culpepper, it's a group marked by utter failure.

SEEDS OF DOUBT

A little over a week ago, Troy Vincent sat watching Sunday night football on NBC, and couldn't believe his ears. The former Eagles cornerback listened to the broadcast talk about the family struggles of Philadelphia head coach Andy Reid, relating how Reid had been such a successful coach over the years. And then, in what Vincent considered "the same breath," he listened to NBC's analysts question whether McNabb could still be a successful quarterback after last season's torn anterior cruciate ligament.

The next morning, Vincent picked up his phone and called McNabb with a resounding message of support.

"What I was seeing and hearing while I watched that game was that someone was trying to break Donovan," Vincent said. "I heard Al Michaels – and I'm not being critical of Al and John Madden and Andrea Kramer, they're doing what they are supposed to do – but I heard them have so much compassion for Andy Reid and his family and what a great coaching job he's done and how many games he's won.

"Well, let me tell you something. There has been one guy behind the center for almost all of those wins. The reality is No. 5 created a bunch of those wins. … They were basically questioning Donovan McNabb's ability to play. And I was like 'Are you kidding me?' If anybody was listening to that, that's what you heard."

Partially because of last season's season-ending knee injury, his age (30) and the franchise's decision to use its second-round pick during April's NFL draft to tab a future successor at the position in Kevin Kolb, McNabb's ability to successfully get over the injury has been a common theme this preseason.

When Vincent hears the annual criticism of McNabb, it forces him to wonder why the quarterback has never truly gotten credit for the success he has delivered to the Eagles franchise. Such success is undeniable.

In the regular season and playoffs combined, McNabb has won 65.1-percent of the games he has started. That's better than Peyton Manning (63-percent), Brett Favre (61.4), Matt Hasselbeck (57.4), Carson Palmer (54.3) and Drew Brees (53.2). He also has a better winning percentage in the playoffs (58.3 percent) than every other active NFL starter aside from Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger.

But, the obvious criticism – and it's something McNabb readily points out himself – is that Brady, Manning and Favre own Super Bowl rings. And for the fans of Philadelphia, little has been more frustrating than seeing the Eagles advance to four straight NFC Championship games and one Super Bowl, only to walk away without a world championship.

That lack of a Super Bowl ring has typically fallen squarely on McNabb's shoulders. It can be heard on talk radio from angry fans on an annual basis, and it has been blasted at full volume in the Philadelphia media. Despite being the most successful quarterback in the franchise's modern-era history, his greatness has also been as hotly debated as any other.

When the Philadelphia Inquirer unveiled its 75th Anniversary section and named the top 75 Eagles of all time, McNabb barely made the top 10, coming in at No. 9. To put it in perspective, safety Brian Dawkins got a far better nod at No. 5. The reasoning behind McNabb's slot was punctuated by columnist Ashley Fox, who weaved the phrase "And yet …" throughout McNabb's entry. As in, he's got great statistics and a fine winning percentage, and yet he's never won a Super Bowl:

"In 2004, McNabb threw for 3,875 yards and 31 TDs in 15 regular-season games, leading the Eagles to their first Super Bowl since 1980. And yet … Rush Limbaugh. Terrell Owens. The draft. The last few minutes of the Super Bowl loss to New England. The sports hernia. The knee. McNabb is one of the greatest Eagles of all time, and yet his career to date is, as the 30-year-old readily admitted, incomplete."

And yet, such words only begin to sum up why McNabb has continually been a topic of debate since landing with the Eagles.

"Man, that's Philly for you," Kearse said. "He's in a situation where he can't win for losing. Everything that we do, it comes back to Donovan in one form or another, because he's our leader. People here have to put the blame on somebody. And it just so happens that he's always the guy."
