  2. Riley Cooper gets 5 years, $10 million guaranteed officially

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:33 PM EDT


    While Riley Cooper fans got their wish on Thursday when the wide receiver signed a five-year, $25 million deal to remain with the Philadelphia Eagles, my feelings on the new pact would be based almost entirely on its structure. The money and length were roughly what I predicted they would be, but the devil is…

  3. Jason Kelce agrees to 6-year, $37.5 million extension

    Feb 27, 2014, 9:52 AM EDT

    Jason Kelce

    The Eagles shouldn’t have to worry about the offensive line for awhile if they don’t want to now that all five starters are signed through at least 2016. As expected, Jason Kelce agreed to a long-term contract extension on Thursday. The center is due to receive $37.5 million over the next seven seasons, with $13.5M…

  4. FanGraphs projects Phillies as second-most improved team in 2014

    Feb 26, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    Ryne Sandberg, A.J. Burnett

    Despite having what by most accounts was actually a pretty solid offseason, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of buzz surrounding the Philadelphia Phillies in 2014. Watching this year’s team could be a lot like visiting your grandparents—of course you love them, but it’s not necessarily the most exciting thing on your calendar.…

  8. Eagles extend LT Jason Peters through 2018

    Feb 26, 2014, 10:50 AM EDT

    jason peters

    The Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive line may be getting a little older, but the team doesn’t seem to be interested in breaking up one of the league’s top units anytime soon. The organization announced on Tuesday that it has agreed to a four-year contract extension with All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter,…

  9. What food would the Phillies put on their hat? A cheesesteak of course

    Feb 25, 2014, 4:23 PM EDT


    On Monday, the Philadelphia Phillies’ Triple-A affiliate Lehigh Valley IronPigs unveiled new alternate uniforms that feature a strip of bacon as the logo. Well, what if those kinds of shenanigans went on in the big leagues? What food would the Phils have adorned on their caps? Thankfully, the Houston Astros blog The Crawfish Boxes has…

    Feb 25, 2014, 1:03 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Flyers’ push for the playoffs begins in earnest on Thursday with the first of 24 remaining games to solidify their postseason positioning. They only have three games left before the March 5 trade deadline though, which means the team must act fast if it intends to add reinforcements. But if Paul Holmgren’s recent…

    Feb 25, 2014, 11:42 AM EDT


    The NFL Scouting Combine is wrapping up on Tuesday in Indianapolis, where the Philadelphia Eagles made some news that’s sure to be trumped up in the weeks and months leading to the draft.

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:35 PM EDT


    Sad update over the weekend in the local sports movie industry.

  15. #smellthechange: Lehigh Valley IronPigs to use bacon strip as logo

    Feb 24, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT


    Oh, minor league baseball, with your wacky promotions and absurd nicknames. It was only a matter of time before one your franchises found a way to turn bacon into a fashion statement. Turns out it was the Philadelphia Phillies’ Triple-A affiliate that crossed the finish line first. The Lehigh Valley IronPigs had their big #smellthechange…

  16. Horror: Phillies want Wheels to ‘go around the ballpark and play the role of Chris Wheeler’

    Feb 24, 2014, 1:05 PM EDT


    Be sure to keep your head on a swivel at Citizens Bank Park this summer. Aside from the normal batted balls and occasional flung baseball bats flying into the stands, Chris Wheeler could be lurking around every turn, stalking you like a rabid mongoose stalks its prey. Wheels may not be in the broadcast booth…

  19. Amaro speaks (sort of) on Phillies draft pick controversy

    Feb 22, 2014, 2:55 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Phillies were embroiled in some controversy this week that had nothing to do with signing a 35-year-old-and-up ballplayer to a new contract. Let’s see if we can sum up this controversy quickly and succinctly for the uninitiated. In a story first reported by Aaron Fitt for Baseball America, 2013 fifth-round pick Ben Wetzler…

    The Philadelphia Eagles believe they have the answer to the question that has haunted mankind since its inception: Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper or both?

  24. Jeremy Maclin speaks out on state of contract negotiations with Eagles

    Feb 15, 2014, 1:37 PM EDT


    For the record, any talk of Jeremy Maclin’s time with the Philadelphia Eagles coming to a close is premature. A report surfaced last week that the New York Jets could have interest in the wide receiver, and the fact that he is still without a new deal from the Birds less than a month before…
