Surprised Foreman didn’t get more (than $2 million) from Panthers to stay.
Can’t believe the Steelers didn’t meet or beat that deal for Edmunds. He fit well in that defense.
That’s assuming the number he would accept to join the Eagles (definitely one of the best teams in the NFL), is the same as the number he would accept from the Steelers. (Definitely one of the teams in the NFL)
Geez Steelers. Edmunds is cheap.
