Last week, Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson was hospitalized with viral pneumonia. A league source tells PFT that the Eagles now plan to place Patterson on the non-football injury/illness list for the balance of the season. Per the source, the Eagles also plan to exercise their discretion to reduce Patterson’s pay, not completely but partially. The move is expected to cause hard feelings, especially since it’s entirely possible that Patterson initially got sick because of practicing or playing in the elements. Moreover, the money that will be saved (roughly $150,000, we’re told) could do far more damage to the team’s relationship with Patterson — or to the reputation of the front office within the locker room. As the Eagles wrap up a difficult season and prepare for what all appearances will be a new era, it’s not a good look.
