Well, turns out the piece on Tom Heckert this morning was kinda prophetic...
As per the Eagles website Andy Reid has taken a leave of absence from the team until mid march. Here is the press release.
Joe Banner will be doing a press conference today at 1:30. I'll post highlights from that up when it happens.
This move is not unexpected and completely understandable. Family is more important than football and it's only right that Andy take the time he needs to tend to his family right now.
As far as what happens to the team now... Free agency is 3 weeks away and the draft is over a month away. That means Andy will not be with the organization when free agency kicks off. He'll also miss alot of draft preparation. I would think that those responsibilities will fall to Tom Heckert. It'll be very interesting to see if the Joe Banner addresses this. Someone has to be at the reigns during the most important time of the offseason, hopefully that's Heckert.
