Man that would be so strange to see him throwing anything else.
Discmania is probably gonna open the wallet, there's no way they lose money on him with basically anything within reason.

I never thought Paul would leave Innova as well. I think most people think of Simon when they think of Discmania. Maybe Eagle is exploring leaving the nest. We'll see....

But who can pay for Eagle and "needs" him?

Innova have Calvin and Ricky. . hard to see that they need Eagle to
Discraft have Paul.
Prodigy have Dickerson and KJ

DD or Lat64 would need a player like Eagle. . but can they afford it?


I could see Henna go to Discmania. .FPO gets alot of media, Discmania need a top FPO player

Need? He's 22, has a strong social media following, moves plastic, and is a top 5 player in the world. Every company wants that.

I doubt Henna leaves Innova for Discmania. Plus, it's not entirely clear that Jussi gives much of a **** about FPO.

Eagle is on a whole different plane of existence in terms of marketability

If Eagle makes it known he’s open to moving any company with any money at all should make a run. He a potential difference maker for all of them and one of the most impressive players on tour right now.

I'd say on basis of marketability alone... KJ and Eagle are near the top. KJ has that overall "sports superstar" professional vibe while Eagle has that quirky youthful vibe going for him. KJ seems to be locked into Prodigy for now and more focused on building his resume on the course. Eagle..the name alone just has so many marketing/branding possibilities. $$$
