Didn't he miss all of last year and probably the most of 08?

from wikipedia:

Andrews mysteriously departed the Eagles at the end of June 2008. Later he failed to report to training camp at Lehigh University, without notice and without being excused. He cited unexplained "personal issues" in various text messages with reporters.
In a newspaper article released on August 4, 2008, Andrews claimed he was suffering from depression (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_depressive_disorder) and was seeking professional help.<sup id="cite_ref-3" class="reference">[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shawn_Andrews#cite_note-3)</sup> Andrews started in the first 2 games of the season, but he left in the second game with a back injury. The Eagles did not put him on injured reserve, but the injury caused him to miss the rest of the 2008 season.<sup id="cite_ref-4" class="reference">[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shawn_Andrews#cite_note-4)</sup>
Andrews had surgery in the 2009 offseason, but he re-injured his back at the start of training camp, which caused him to miss the entire preseason and the first week of the 2009 season (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_NFL_season) before he was placed on the injured reserve (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Injured_reserve) list on September 15, 2009.

He's played guard most of his career. Maybe 2 - 1/2 healthy guards = 1 guard?

I live in Eagles country and there is no bigger pussy in pro sports than this guy. After being coddled all off-season, he reported to training camp late, overweight and, within a couple days, supposedly hurt.

For instance, the Eagles signed his bro, Stacy, last year, chiefly to comfort and motivate him through his depression issues, but that wasn't enough to get him to play. Instead he was busy posting rap videos onto YouTube. This guy is talented, one of the best when he wants to be, but is only worth the minimum. Dude be stealin cake.

When he wants to play, he's outstanding. When.

Maybe we can get him for a dirt cheap price and hope a change of scenery does him good and if not cut him.
