I have Frank Gore syndrome, I’m sorry.
I know that Kenny Britt was making it rain in Atlantic City and telling people he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles and Alshon Jeffery was spotted at the Philadelphia airport, but until things become official, I refuse to get Gore’d.
Philadelphia initially got riled up because a Twitter user with the handle @SlaytheBook posted a receipt with Kenny Britt’s name on it while he was in AC.

Then Smitty from Barstool Sports stirred the fanbase up with this tweet.
Getting a billion texts from people that Kenny Britt is in Atlantic City and is bragging about signing with the Eagles. So, cool. I guess.

Britt’s agent Fadde Mikkhail, meanwhile, claims that his client has yet to agree to terms with the Eagles.

The NFL’s legal tampering period began on Tuesday, but Britt can’t visit the NovaCare Complex and official sign a deal until the new league year begins on Thursday at 4.00 PM EST.
Let’s just wait another day for all of this to work itself out.
Until then, let’s not get Gore’d!
