Draft Scout DeMeco Ryans News
10/29/14 - Sunday's game in Houston is a homecoming of sorts for Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans. Ryans spent six seasons with the Texans before they traded him to the Eagles in March of 2012. Ryans, who still lives in Houston in the offseason, said he has no hard feelings about being traded.
"I could see it coming," Ryans said. "I wasn't playing on third down. I was only playing base. I just got a new contract there. So I knew it wasn't going to last long. They said they couldn't pay me what they were paying me if I wasn't playing every down. I said cool. There were no hard feelings or anything. I understood. Me being six years in the game, it wasn't surprising to me. I wasn't upset or anything like that. I still had an opportunity to come to (another) team and play football."
