Judging by Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie's comments after the team finished 8-8 last season, Andy Reid's tenure as head coach will likely end within the next month or two.
The only question is what Reid will do next. Reid could take the year off and collect money for the final year of his deal. Or he could pick himself back up, dust himself off and find another coaching gig.
Well, a source tells The Times of Trenton's Mark Eckel that Reid could be the next head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Yes, the Dallas Cowboys. The deal would be contingent on the current Cowboys coach, Jason Garrett, being fired. More from Eckel:
According to an extremely reliable source, who is close to Reid, the long-time Eagles head coach could be the head coach of the archrival Cowboys next year.
Of course, that is all based on Reid being fired by the Eagles, which is expected, and Jason Garrett being let go by the Cowboys, which isn't quite as sure, but certainly could happen if Dallas does not make the playoffs.
"I know a lot of people think Andy is going to San Diego next year, and I can see that happening," the source said. "But I keep hearing Dallas. I think he can end up with the Cowboys. As a matter of fact, I think he will end up with the Cowboys, if Jason is fired."
