06:02 PM ET 05.23 | Philadelphia Eagles tight end James Casey will undergo arthroscopic surgery to clean out loose cartilage his right knee and will be out of action for the rest of the spring, a team spokesman confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. The spokesman said Casey should be ready to go by the start of training camp. The Eagles signed tight end Will Shaw this week, surely in part to help take some reps in Casey's absence. Shaw's addition is why the team waived running back Miguel Maysonet, who was claimed by the Cleveland Browns. There was speculation cutting Maysonet, who received a $10,000 signing bonus, was a sign of a rift between general manager Howie Roseman and coach Chip Kelly. However, a person informed of the team's thinking said Casey's surgery meant the Eagles needed a roster spot for Shaw.

HA!

They posted like 20 fucking NFL stories today.

I swear the people who run this site can't figure out whether they want to kill it or whatever the fuck they think they're doing.

I believe the notion of a rift was a Florio creation.

There was a time in the long ago when NFL posters wished for more than the 4 or 5 stories they were allotted per day. Highly doubt they looked forward to 20.

And darn sure no one wished they'd post every story twice in the same day.
