Eagles | Contract update: Rocca

Sat, 20 Jan 2007 09:40:07 -0800

Les Bowen, of the Philadelphia Daily News, reports the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to terms with Australian Football League P Salverio Rocca. The deal is for a non-guaranteed three-year contract. Australia's National Nine TV news show first reported Rocca would sign with the team. "It's mixed feelings, because it's quite exciting if you make it and go all the way. That environment, for the family, it's a bit hectic, because we're just not sure how far we're going to go... They can terminate the contract after 1 day if they want to. I've got to get over there and show 'em that I'm fairly good and I can kick just as good as, if not better than, who they've got there at the moment," Rocca said. He expects to arrive in Philadelphia in late March, but said he is not sure if he will bring his family right away.
