Fargas Leaves NovaCare Complex Without Contract

Written By Bob Cunningham On Friday, March 12, 2010

Justin Fargas might not become an Eagle in 2010.

Justin Fargas stuck around for a while during his visit to the Eagles' practice facilities at the NovaCare complex, but apparently has left the building without a contract.

As far as I know, he is still in Philadelphia but apparently will not sign a deal today.

There's no cause for concern just yet, but if he leaves the city is becomes highly unlikely that he would be back to sign a contract. There's no word of another visit scheduled for Fargas, so he and his agent could just be playing hardball at the moment.

He probably wants to be paid like a "1a" running back -- or a guy who is going to see about 40 percent of the carries -- but the Eagles are most likely offering him a deal as the backup, figuring he's only going to see about 25 to 30 percent of the carries.

We all know the Eagles aren't going to overpay for someone, but it's unlikely that they'd feel comfortable going into the 2010 season with a rookie as LeSean McCoy's backup. That is, unless a guy like Dexter McCluster could possibly fall to the third round.

He won't, but it's okay to hope and dream, right?

Fargas would be a terrific backup to McCoy, but it just doesn't look like it's going to happen today and the longer it goes, the further the chances drop. Fargas is probably going to have to come down on what he's looking for if he wants to become an Eagle.

Let it be known, however, that Jeff McLane is reporting via Twitter that a league source has told him that the Eagles are not expected to sign Fargas at all. I'm not sure how a "league source" would know what specifically the Eagles are doing, but there it is.

The Eagles have no free agents scheduled to come in tomorrow, so it looks like both sides could just be playing a waiting game.
