Health comes first and him opting out is totally respectable. Him and his wife just had a child not too long ago. Sometimes there are things that are bigger than football and this is one.
For the Eagles, although he wasn’t a lock to make the roster, his speed could be a big factor for the offense. With him opting out, it’s a big opportunity for John Hightower and Quez Watkins to make the team and have an impact.
