Doug Pederson can add “author” to his resume right behind “Super Bowl winning head coach.”
The former NFL quarterback and head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles is writing a memoir chronicling his career as a backup quarterback, assistant coach and the Eagles’ journey to their first Super Bowl title in February.
It’s unclear whether this is the end of it, or whether the NFL will conduct its own investigation. In theory, Brandon could end up seeking employment with another NFL team. It would make sense for the league to come to its own conclusion as to whether Brandon did what he was accused of doing, and whether he was indeed deceitful when faced with the facts.
For many employers, lack of truthfulness in connection with an internal investigation provides independent grounds for termination, regardless of whether the underlying allegations can be substantiated.
“I’m able to do a lot of things that I couldn’t do back in January, February,” Freeman said, via Vaughn McClure. “Running, cutting, sprinting — getting a little stronger. . . . Making hard cuts; sprinting a little faster. The progress is getting better and better each day. So I’m just going along with the program.”
Freeman didn’t have surgery to correct the damage, and said he just wanted to “continue to get better” leading up to training camp and the regular season.
“I just want to take it one day at a time,” he said. “I had a performance I didn’t like [last] season. My mindset is I can never let that happen again. With that being said, just being 100 percent healthy is everything because I want to be free. I want to be full-go all the time. I don’t want to be slowing down because of no nagging injury or I’m injured trying to go and I know I can’t go.”
