J^ Amaiillo Globe-Times Thursday. April 27, 1967 MikeDitka Gels 150,000 g; For Nothing PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Surehanded Mike Ditka, the, new tight end of the Philadel phia Eagles, is a rare example of a man who can have his cake and eat it, too. ' When Ditka was traded . Wednesday by the Chicago Bears to the Eagles for quarterback Jack Concannon in a National FootbaH League swap, he: Left an unhappy professional relationship. Pocketed $50,000 without a court suit. Was certain to sign for a salary worthy of star status with the Eagles. In agreeing to play with Philadelphia, Ditka -- who becomes a free agent May 1 -- says he lost a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity to join the Houston Oilers of the American Football League. Unable to reach a contract agreement with owner-coach George Halas of the Bears last year, Ditka decided to play out his NFL option. He later accepted 550,000 and a three-year contract reportedly! worth $250,000 if he jumped to the Oilers this coming season. When the AFL and NFLj merged, it left Ditka's deal tip I in the air. Houston, in the interest of good harmony, said it did not intend to drag the Ditka case into the courts -- and would let him pocket the $50,000. "I'm not really disappointed that I didn't go with Houston," the 27-year-old Ditka said from his home in Downers Grove, m. "Actually,.
