Well he's outhitting Brown this year. In that department, might be a little case of the grass is greener on the other side.

I think Eager gave it his best to embrace the role asked of him, I think it's just unfortunate that the concussion occurred, he obviously was willing to fight before it, and since then he hasn't fought. I can't blame him or criticize him for that. If it didn't happen, I think we might be singing a different tune about Eager.

Nonetheless, Brown also gets raved about in terms of his attitude and character, Eager you hear grumblings about the opposite every now and then. Combine that with the price tag, I definitely think Brown is a better fit for this role on this team moving forward.
