PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles have no intention of trading disgruntled cornerback Sheldon Brown, who says he wants out after the team refused to re-negotiate his contract.

Brown is scheduled to make $2 million this season, the first of four remaining on the extension he signed in 2004. The deal included a $7.5 million signing bonus.

Brown told ESPN.com Monday he has asked to be traded. Later in the day, the Eagles responded with a statement.

The team called Brown’s decision to go public with his situation “unfortunate and counterproductive,” and explained how the extension he signed in 2004 “removed any concerns about health or performance that all other players in his draft class had to worry about.”
