From his family's vacation ripping in shredding barrel psyches, tenny powers John Cases. Best. I love. Joining us now is a man who's a six time pro bowler. His numbers retired for the Philadelphia Eagles Eagles Hall of Famer and he wants signed a twelve year hundred fifteen million dollar deal with Andy Reid at the helm, Ladies and Gentlemen Donovan mcnabb. It was it wasn't five hundred and some million, but I'll take a hundred. Hey as you should, that is not a bad deal a welcome to the show. Thank you so much for joining us. Let's talk about that whenever you and your agent and the eagles were talking about potentially that long term deal well, how conversations go I would assume that you were excited for one hundred and fifteen million dollars, just like Patrick mahomes excited here the five hundred million dollar deal. But there's a lot of people that are like Oh. That's a bad deal for the player. It's a bad deal for the player. If I'm senator for one hundred million, I feel like that's a good deal, and I might be wrong in there. Well you know, you gotta remember at a time when which played you know drew bledsoe and I think Brett Farr with the only two at that particular time sign one hundred million dollar deal so I as we were kind of discussing contract you know. The information was sent to me not about the actual It was more of the years in as you can see what Dak Prescott is going through. Through at this time, you don't really want to extend your contract. Because then you'll miss out the boat on really actually getting big big money and so that's why you see press guy going for four years, and at that particular time remember ninety nine. When I was drafted. There are a lot of seven year contracts that were given up to a lot of guys, so I was fortunate enough in. In my fourth year to re up a Redo, my deal, which extended me into that twelve year deal because you know with the money and all it was great, but they wanted to lock you in so that they don't have to worry about me. Getting to the seventh or sixth year, my contract, and all of a sudden at one fifteen goes to a hundred and forty five Because we've. We've made it to so many NFC championships at that particular time, so it was smart business wise for the Philadelphia Eagles but also as far as my agent was concer- He was able to grind out and put out as much money as we could, which led to me obsessively getting through that deal, and then getting another extension so I can't complain by any means of what's going on. By the way that team was dominant to watch over there, in Philadelphia, and we'll talk about that chunky soup money. Chunk. Everybody gotta eat something. That was awesome union mom. Obviously, it's a very memorable commercial and brain in the business behind Donovan mcnabb was an awesome one in the way you played was so cool is well. I mean you're.
