Eagles forced to address Gruden rumor

Early this morning a rumor that the Eagles were going to replace the unpopular Andy Reid with Jon Gruden began to make the rounds on a few low profile websites likely looking for a spike in hits. When the rumor hit WIP, the Birds were inundated with calls and forced to address the matter...

“Early this morning we have received several inquiries regarding the rumors regarding Andy Reid and Jon Gruden. This was simply a rumor and there is no basis to it at all. It is simply not true," the team said in a statement.

The rumor started on the Facebook page of ex-Eagles fullback Kyle Eckel.

"Sorry,everyone," Eckel wrote on his Twitter page today. "Participating in that silly rumor was a mistake. I was careless with your trust and insulted an organization. Sincere regrets."
