Last call for Tra Thomas, Buck?

The Eagles have several veterans who are free agents after the season. A couple of them talked about their futures on TV after the game. When Tra Thomas was asked if this could have been his last game as an Eagle, here's what he said. "It definitely could have been it, but I’m in a holding pattern," Thomas told Comcast SportsNet. "We’ll just wait and see what happens. Until March 1, I’m still an Eagle." What about Correll Buckhalter? “It’s a business. It definitely can be possible," Buckhalter said about this possibly being his final game. "Just put it in God’s hands. I’m not too much worried about it. Every chance I had on that field, I just gave it my all. That’s all I can do." Meanwhile, running back Brian Westbrook was asked about the possibility of not having several veterans back next season. "Well the way the business is is that every year you’re never gonna have the same team as you had last season," Westbrook said. "Coaches moving, players moving, so it’s gonna be tough. It’s gonna be a lot of uncertainty going into that offseason. We have some older guys, some guys we hope to have back, but the way things are, is that you’re never really guaranteed to have those guys back until you really know.” The beat guys from The Inquirer and Daily News will have expanded comments from these guys and the rest of the free agents tonight and in tomorrow's paper.
