Jul 28, 2011, 8:16 AM EDT
The local player movement scene has been a little slower than most people might have thought since the lifting of the NFL lockout, with the Eagles notably sitting on the sidelines in terms of announced deals. Of course, we know that Kevin Kolb will be traded, with most but not all signs pointing to a deal with the Arizona Cardinals and involving Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a draft pick coming this way.
But throughout the waning period of the lockout, we also saw the Eagles linked to names like Plaxico Burress, Albert Haynesworth, and Reggie Bush, among others. Well, after yesterday’s spate of minor-name trades, Thursday is gearing up to be a busy day, with at least Haynesworth and Reggie Bush reportedly on the move, and not to Philly.

The Eagles’ long-awaited trade of quarterback Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals has finally been completed. Philadelphia receives cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a 2012 second round draft pick in the exchange.
Jul 27, 2011, 1:07 PM EDT
Whoever runs the Eagles website must be pretty sure the Eagles are going to deal Kevin Kolb to Arizona for corner back Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (plus draft pick?). How sure? Well, DRC is currently a jersey option on the Eagles official website’s team store. UPDATE: The option to purchase said jersey has now been removed. Get…

The NFL won’t cancel their 2011 season, shorten its length, or delay its start. No harm, no foul… right?

The first interesting tidbit to come out of Eagles players reporting to the NovaCare Complex today in South Philadelphia is word that quarterback Mike Vick hinted that wideout DeSean Jackson may not report for training camp.
Jul 26, 2011, 10:52 AM EDT
Eagles players are trickling in to the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia. Shady McCoy is there! Mike Vick is there! Clay Harbor is there! The 10:00 am trade window opened up and almost an hour later Kevin Kolb is still an Eagle.

Last night, Howard Eskin made waves with a report stating that the Eagles have “some interest” in Brett Favre once they trade Kevin Kolb. With nearly every other big name free agent linked to Philadelphia, why not the man who can never safely be assumed to be truly retired? Plus, the Eagles will likely need to bring in a backup to sit between Michael Vick and the still green Mike Kafka.
Eskin routinely ruffles a few feathers and has for longer than I can remember, but even his detractors know he’s not without Eagles sources. Some detract for exactly that reason. Still, the report is very preliminary, so we’ll hold our breath a bit before digging in too deeply on what it could mean.
One person who isn’t waiting to share his opinion though is Vick, who wholeheartedly endorsed the Birds’ signing Favre to be his backup on Sunday morning

The owners voted this evening in Atlanta and have agreed to a new CBA which now has to be ratified by the NFL Players Association for the league year to begin. Free agency could start next Wednesday.

With new defensive coordinator Juan Castillo and the Eagles claiming they will simplify their defense, it might be safe to say the days of crazy overload blitzes and complex coverages will soon fade to memory. And according to Quintin Mikell, it might be safe to say the defense will be more vanilla than ever.
Jul 19, 2011, 11:38 AM EDT
Rumors of a Kevin Kolb for Dominique Rogers-Cromartie trade have been floated for a while now, but somebody with a “source” has finally chimed in.

The Philadelphia Eagles miraculous comeback against the Giants at the Meadowlands last season was honored with an ESPY Award on Wednesday night for Best Game of the Year. Hard to argue with that distinction.

Last December, the Eagles caught a bad break when rookie defensive end Brandon Graham’s ACL gave out, costing him the rest of his season and likely derailing any chance of significant improvement from him in year two. As it turns out, what we didn’t know at the time is that was not the extent of…
