Dungy on why Eagles let DeSean Jackson walk
NBC NFL analyst Tony Dungy joined the show to talk about the big storylines around the League.
— Dungy thinks there has to be more of a reason than we know for sure on why the Eagles cut DeSean Jackson.
“No one lets a player like that go for reasons about money,” Dungy said. “I have to think it’s something that happened during the course of the year that was [going on] with the team.”
Dungy said that Chip Kelly has certain expectations and pointed out that Kelly suspended talented quarterback Jeremiah Masoli.
— Dan asked Dungy if Michael Vick expects to start in New York. “If he didn’t think he was going to start, there’d be no reason to leave Philadelphia,” Dungy said.
— Dungy said Johnny Manziel’s Pro Day is what you get with new-era players. “If you take Johnny Manziel, you have to be willing to take it all,” Dungy said. “You have to take some of this new-wave attitude. … If you aren’t one who can buy into that, it’s probably best not to take Johnny Manziel.”
— Dungy said that he would play Jadeveon Clowney at right defensive end like Dwight Freeney. But he had a concern that Clowney didn’t look special all the time.
