The Philadelphia Eagles are kind of a mess right now!
They’ve lost four straight games. Their $128 million franchise quarterback was just benched for a rookie. Their head coach is reportedly on the hot seat. Their general manager should be on the hot seat. And so on.
“And so on” now includes a player getting kicked out of the team hotel a day prior to Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. Derrick Gunn reports that Jamon Brown’s time with the Eagles has come to an end due to “conduct detrimental to the team.”
According to sources close to the team on Saturday eagles head of security Dom DiSandro kicked OL Jamon Brown out of the team hotel and sent him home for conduct detrimental to the team.— Derrick Gunn (@RealDGunn) December 7, 2020
To add to the story Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson spoke to Brown and immediately cut him from the team ...— Derrick Gunn (@RealDGunn) December 7, 2020
It’s currently unclear exactly what Brown did to justify being removed. In any case, not a good look for a 27-year-old veteran with 62 career games under his belt.
Brown’s ejection also isn’t a good look for the Eagles, who were inexplicably keeping him around on the practice squad despite how awful he looked when he started a game for this team in Week 6. The Eagles actually used one of their four weekly practice squad protections on Brown as recently as this past week! Lol. Here’s what we wrote at the time:
That the Eagles are still employing Brown doesn’t make any sense to me. He’s proved to be an awful short-term option and the 27-year-old isn’t going to be in the long-term plans. Who’s really trying to poach him away? I don’t get it.
What a mess.
Heard a lot of people Trashing Jamon Brown but y’all all clearly forgot his 0.5 Sack in his first Start as an eagle...STUD pic.twitter.com/F2slmOUMY9— dante (@DanteBabyyy) October 19, 2020
UPDATE: The Eagles officially cut Brown.
