Brown of the Philadelphia Eagles- focusing at football above anything else

Thursday evening, April 24, Eagles’ cornerback Sheldon Brown arrived at the NovaCare Complex to attend for the Philadelphia Eagles meeting about their coming post-draft mini-camp.
There had been earlier issues about Brown dissatisfactions with his contract, although Brown cleared to everyone but he just wanted to share what he feels but it has nothing to do with the game. It never came to his mind to miss the team’s mandatory off-season practices and trainings. Sheldon also explained that his goal is to focus on football and that he’s going to do his job regardless of anything. Brown subsequently apologized to the fans about the matter.

Brown was drafted by the Eagles on the second round of the 2002 NFL Draft out of the University of South Carolina. He earned the most attention during the NFC Divisional Playoff Game, when he prevented the New Orleans Saints’ Reggie Bush from catching a pass, and knocked Bush to the ground eventually. Some football analysts even considered it as the hit of the year.
Brown also has a record of 3 touchdowns returned, from 1 interceptions, and 1 fumble: (during the 4th week of the 2005 NFL season- a 40-yd touchdown from an interception; during the 5th week of the 2005 season- an 80-yd touchdown return from an interception; and during the 10th week of the 2006 NFL season – a 70-yd touchdown return from an interception). For his entire seven years in the league, Brown has never let pass any game yet.
As the Eagles enter their mini-camp, perhaps the deepest concern here is the team’s cornerback position. Since the Eagles had just welcomed New England’s Ellis Hobbs, when he was traded by the Patriots on the day 2 of the 2009 NFL Draft for two 5th round selections. Although Head Coach Andy Reid of the Eagles eventually exclaimed that the move is irrelevant with Brown’s issue about his contract, but instead a move to insert an experienced player to the team.
Brown on the other hand, is not affected about the possible competition between him and Hobbs. He even added that he actually likes Ellis, and if he makes the Philadelphia Eagles a better team, then he definitely needs to be one of them on the football field.
