Now that Stacey Andrews is finally healthy in Philadelphia, the Eagles decided they no longer need the services of his younger brother, Shawn Andrews. Shawn Andrews, a former two time pro-bowler in 2006 and 2007, played in a total of two games in 2008 and 2009. The Eagles saved 2 million this season by releasing Shawn Andrews. Their official statement on Shawn's release read, ""We have, however, decided to move in another direction."
Shawn is cheap, has potential, and has issues. Sounds like a perfect fit for Mike Brown's Bengals. Also one could view this as the Bengals getting something back from the Eagles for the signing of Stacey Andrews.
Shawn's desire to play football again has been the question, the Eagles appear to believe he's lost interest in the game. Shawn's own comments from a recent radio interview about the situation speak otherwise, "The doctor said that if you don't plan on playing football again I suggest you don't have surgery. And I had another surgery. I went through that whole thing." When asked if Shawn is still able to play at a pro-bowl level, "I don't know if I should say this on the air, but hell, yes. That's a definite for me."
A 27 year old guard with something to prove and willing to do it for cheap. Might this be a move worth the Bengals time and effort this season?
