Report: Andrews Willing To Re-Work Contract

*Philadelphia Daily News' *Paul Domowitch reported on Wednesday that the Eagles would release guard Stacy Andrews if he did not agree to restructure his contract. Per Domowitch, Andrews is scheduled to receive a $4.1 million roster bonus on April 4. In all, Andrews could make $7.6 million this season after starting just two games in 2009 as he battled back from an ACL injury.

Andrews told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Wednesday evening that he "would do a minor restructuring of (his) contract" and that "hopefully, we can come to an agreement." However, he "wouldn't mess with the roster bonus."

Head coach Andy Reid said numerous times last season that Andrews' inability to get on the field was due in large part to his surgically-repaired knee. Andrews said that "the knee didn't hinder me."

"I felt real good on the knee. It took a while to get comfortable at guard and get a new system down," Andrews said.

Andrews' agent Rich Moran said that he's had talks with the team and "always had an amicable relationship with the Eagles."

A fourth-round draft pick of the Bengals in 2004, Andrews signed with the Eagles last February after playing under the franchise tag in 2008 in Cincinnati.
