Eagles think Shawn Andrews doesn't want to play football

Posted by Mike Florio on September 20, 2009 12:18 PM ET
Last year, Eagles right guard Shawn Andrews suffered a back injury in Week Two. He remained on the active roster for the entire season.

This year, Andrews' back flared up again. And the Eagles didn't hesitate to shut him down and eat his full salary for the 2009 season.

Per a league source, the Eagles were influenced by the perception that Shawn Andrews doesn't want to play football. So they granted his perceived wish -- with pay.

The other concern, we're told, is that the Eagles didn't want someone with Andrews' mindset around the players who continue to have the desire to play.

The move actually isn't costing the Eagles much money. Per NFLPA records, Andrews' base salary is only $750,000.

In theory, Andrews probably could fight the designation, since it could be perceived as a roundabout effort to suspend Andrews with pay. As a result of the 2005 suspension without pay (and thereafter with pay) of Terrell Owens, the labor agreement wiped out the ability to shut a guy down for disciplinary reasons and still pay him.

Dave Wrong-stadt... he had a chance to draft Andrews.... could have been another monumental mistake.....but Wrongstadt liked to draft defensive nobody's.
