FredEx is an ex-Eagle

Read all about it.

Funny how sometimes the quiet guys get it down and the loud guys get most of the attention. Philadelphia has enough problems with a vocal and productive wide receiver; it just doesn't have time for the distraction of a vocal and unproductive one.

Freddie Mitchell was a breath of fresh air for any writer covering the Eagles. He spoke frankly, never relying on the cliches and bromides that many players toss at the media. He also was entertaining for many fans, who got tired of the collective monotone of Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb.

But the whole act would have gone over better if he were more than the third option. For Freddie Mitchell's sake, here's to hoping that he gets down to business at his next stop, keeps his mouth shut most of the time, and delivers.

Many players get a second chance in the NFL, but most coaches are authoritarian, and they won't put up with third options whose talk otherwise would seem to indicate that they're the star of the show.

FredEx now has the label of many other players who stopped fitting within the Eagles' business model -- ex-Eagle.
