Why did Philly need to renegotiate TO's contract? He signed the deal he had willing, against the urging of the NFLPA at the time. No one coerced him into doing it. It's not like he didn't get a healthy signing bonus from the get go. The Eagles had a valid contract in place and had no need to renegotiate with TO.
Take it from a guy that watched TO come up through the ranks, even if the Eagles would have renegotiated his deal, it wouldn't have been the end of TO causing troubles. He would have found something else to complain about, someone else to throw under the bus or something not right in generalities. I've said it before and I've said it again, if someone really wanted to help TO, they would go get him some psycholigical help, dudes got issues.
