    A welcome addition to the rafters. #FlyEaglesFly pic.twitter.com/IBkYQaMDAU — LincolnFinancialFld (@LFFStadium) February 28, 2014 With all the recent moves the Philadelphia Eagles have been making to retain their own players, today seems like an appropriate day to raise the 2013 NFC East Champions banner at Lincoln Financial Field. No, it’s not a world championship banner,…

  2. Connor Barwin on NFL locker rooms: ‘My job is very, very different from your job’

    A couple weeks ago, Jason Avant wrote an article for The MMQB about life in an NFL locker room amid the ongoing Jonathan Martin-Richie Incognito bullying scandal in Miami. Friday, it was Connor Barwin’s turn. The Philadelphia Eagles linebacker tried his hand at explaining what the “office setting” is like for a football team in…

  3. With $13 million guaranteed, Jason Kelce is going to do something awesome for his parents, and then buy a ton of sweatpants

    Jason Kelce

    Jason Kelce joined Riley Cooper on Thursday as the two Eagles to receive long-term extensions. Kelce’s is a six-year deal worth $37.5 million, 13.5 of which is guaranteed.

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

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:33 PM EDT

    cooper-bye

    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…

  5. 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…

  6. Four More Years: Riley Cooper to sign 4-year deal with Eagles

    Feb 26, 2014, 10:03 PM EDT

    Riley Cooper

    Welp, all that priority-not-priority talk is moot now. League source tells me Riley Cooper will sign a 4-year deal tomorrow with Eagles. @Jeff_McLane and PFT reported today that deal was close. — Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) February 27, 2014 It’s hard to put this in the proper context without knowing exactly how much this thing is…

  7. CONFLICTING SOURCES!!!! New report says the Eagles like Cooper more than Maclin

    Feb 26, 2014, 3:50 PM EDT

    USATSI_6842720_138566172_lowres

    Over the weekend, the Inquirer’s Jeff McLane reported that if the Eagles end up having to pick one free agent wide receiver over another, they’ll end up placing a higher priority on Jeremy Maclin than Riley Cooper. Shortly thereafter, ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio wrote: Possible translation?  The Eagles have learned enough about the expected market for…

    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. Eagles meet with QB Johnny Manziel at combine, nothing to see here (probably)

    Feb 25, 2014, 11:42 AM EDT

    manziel

    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. Tucked in this week’s edition of the Monday Morning Quarterback by Peter King was the tidbit that the Birds were one of…

    Everything is coming up Nick Foles these days. Fresh off a sophomore season that firmly entrenched him as the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, the 25-year-old signal-caller is getting engaged according to a tip over at Barstool Sports: Philly. The young lady’s name is Tori, and based on internet stalking sleuthing, they appear to…

    Feb 22, 2014, 12:41 PM EDT

    maclin-cooper

    The Philadelphia Eagles believe they have the answer to the question that has haunted mankind since its inception: Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper or both? General manager Howie Roseman previously admitted re-signing both wide receivers would be “complicated.” Now, according to Jeff McLane for the Inquirer, the Eagles are ready to prioritize a deal with Maclin…

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jason Avant took his typically sure hands on the football field and used  them to write for Sports Illustrated about the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin situation down in Miami. Avant believes Miami’s locker room is not a typical situation but also points out the lack of diversity training in the NFL in…

  15. Noted Cowboys’ fan Dom Brown received a personalized Philadelphia Eagles jersey, says he’ll wear it

    The city of Philadelphia briefly pondered exiling Phillies outfielder Dom Brown after he tweeted a photo of himself at the Linc in a Cowboys jersey during an Eagles game. Alas, most of us just drank another beer and forgot about the whole thing a minute later. Not CSN/NBC’s John Clark, however. Clark is down in…

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

    Feb 15, 2014, 1:37 PM EDT

    dat.dude.maclin

    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…

    Forget about Bob Costas’s eyeball and Shaun White’s earring, the true story of these Winter Games has been the new Videon Chrysler Dodge & Jeep commercial featuring former Eagle and current ski-jumper, Hollis Thomas.

    DeSean Jackson updated all of his followers on Instagram and Twitter this evening of the “#NewInk” he recently added to his back and/or neck area.

  21. Former NFL general manager rates quarterbacks, Foles ranked 12th

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:30 PM EDT

    foles9

    Would you rather have Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and highest-rated passer in the NFL Nick Foles under center, or Seattle Seahawks signal-caller and world champion Russell Wilson? There’s been an ongoing debate in Philadelphia as to how good Foles really is, whether mobile quarterbacks are better than pocket passers and, specifically in our comment section, where…

    Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony

    Man, no Flyers for 2+ weeks… awful Sixers… and a ho-hum kick-start to Spring Training for the Phils, looks like I’m cleaning out the DVR for a good stretch here. That was a comment on a post about Blake Griffin doing the Sixers dirty late on Sunday evening, but it raises a good point. Sure,…

    marcus.vick

    Local “celebrity” boxing promoter Damon Feldman may have jumped the gun on announcing a boxing match between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX. That fight appears to be on shaky ground, with no contract actually signed and DMX’s camp doubting it will ever come to fruition. “DMX will release an official statement if and when an agreement…
