Description: The Eagles are denying a report that DL Mike Patterson's contract will void, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Insight: We would think, and hope, that a team has a clearer picture of their players' statuses, despite the muddy waters of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Patterson's contract has him signed through the 2016 season.

Description: With his contract expected to be voided, Eagles DL Mike Patterson is set to become an unrestricted free agent.
Insight: Patterson's contract will void because 2011 is not a capped year. An excellent run stuff, the team may opt to use one of the tags outside of the franchise tag to keep Patterson around for 2011. He's nothing great, but he is still a key part of the team's defensive line.
