  1. Report: Eagles made trade offer for Miami Dolphins OLB Dion Jordan

    Apr 10, 2014, 3:31 PM EDT

    Dion Jordan

    This time last year, there was rampant speculation as to whether the Philadelphia Eagles would use the fourth overall draft pick on outside linebacker Dion Jordan. The connection was simple: the Birds needed a pass-rusher for their newly installed 3-4 defense, and head coach Chip Kelly knew Jordan better than anyone from their rime together…

  2. Replacing DeSean: The other guys, but mostly, a draft pick

    Apr 7, 2014, 3:47 PM EDT

    Arrelious Benn, Chris Houston

    82 receptions, 1,332 yards receiving, nine touchdowns; that’s what the Philadelphia Eagles must replace in the NFL’s No. 2 offense after the release of DeSean Jackson. Where’s it supposed to come from? Not necessarily from any one player. In this four part series, we examine whose roles will increase as a result of the move.…

  3. Replacing DeSean: More Zach Ertz, please

  4. DeSean Jackson agrees to deal with Washington

    Apr 2, 2014, 1:27 AM EDT

    DeSean Jackson, LaRon Landry

    Well, this was just about the worst possible turn of events, now wasn’t it? Four days after the Philadelphia Eagles released DeSean Jackson, he winds up back in the NFC East, agreeing to terms with divisional rival Washington. That means we’ll be seeing plenty of Jackson for the foreseeable future—at least two times in 2014,…

  5. Replacing DeSean: I see you, Darren Sproles

    Apr 1, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT

    Darren Sproles

    82 receptions, 1,332 yards receiving, nine touchdowns; that’s what the Philadelphia Eagles must replace in the NFL’s No. 2 offense after the release of DeSean Jackson. Where’s it supposed to come from? Not necessarily from any one player. In this four part series, we examine whose roles will increase as a result of the move.…

  6. Stop defending DeSean Jackson

    Mar 28, 2014, 2:23 PM EDT

    Lions Eagles Football

    It’s times like this where you have to force yourself to step back and look at a situation objectively, not through green-tinted glasses. The Philadelphia Eagles released DeSean Jackson, and it is 100 percent Jackson’s fault. Look, I’m not going to attempt to spin Jackson’s release as the Eagles got better on the football field…

  7. Eagles to players: if you ask for more money, we’ll try to trade you

    Mar 26, 2014, 2:02 PM EDT

    evan mathis

    Is the Philadelphia Eagles’ motivation to trade DeSean Jackson based on his desire to renegotiate his contract after all? Head coach Chip Kelly wouldn’t provide many answers beyond, “we’re always going to do what’s best for the organization,” at the NFL owners meetings on Wednesday. However, maybe there is a clue in the way the…

  8. Report: Eagles interested in QB Mark Sanchez

    Mar 24, 2014, 5:49 PM EDT

    Mark Sanchez

    Sanchez “failed physical” termination w Jets was protocol. Won’t affect next step – signing with Eagles. He’s on good recovery from surgery — Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 24, 2014 Sanchez has been throwing & is about “80 percent” recovered from his labrum surgery. Eagles will do their own medical eval before signing — Chris Mortensen…

  9. Michael Vick’s 10 greatest Eagles moments

    Mar 22, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Michael Vick

    Michael Vick signed with the New York Jets on Friday, finally severing his ties to the Philadelphia Eagles organization after five seasons of service. While he ultimately came up short as the franchise quarterback, enduring his share ups and downs, benchings and injuries, there is absolutely no denying he authored a great number of memorable…

  10. The pros and cons to trading DeSean Jackson

    Mar 19, 2014, 3:20 PM EDT

    desean

    One of the most polarizing athletes in this city, reports of a potential DeSean Jackson trade received a largely negative reaction across the board. Of course, many would be disappointed to see a fan favorite and one of the most productive wide receivers in the NFL shipped out by the Philadelphia Eagles. Even folks who…

  11. Gunn: Eagles want ‘at least a 3rd-round pick’ for DeSean Jackson

    Mar 18, 2014, 5:55 PM EDT

    desean-space

    DeSean Jackson trade rumors have been growing in number and force over the past few weeks. As it turns out, where there’s smoke, there’s probably fire. CSN’s Derrick Gunn dropped the most specific report yet about a potential move by the Philadelphia Eagles to deal the All-Pro wide receiver. While the team is not described…

  12. If nothing else, Eagles are safe at safety again

    Mar 17, 2014, 4:21 PM EDT

    nate-allen

    When was the last time the Philadelphia Eagles had two reliable (let alone competent) safeties in their defensive backfield? We have to go back to 2008, when future Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins and uber-solid Quintin Mikell were patrolling the secondary. With the re-signing of Nate Allen to a one-year contract on Monday, it appears…

  13. Sproles trade doesn’t make much sense for Eagles, anybody

    Mar 13, 2014, 12:11 PM EDT

    Darren Sproles

    Well, I hope everyone is happy. The Philadelphia Eagles finally added a coveted, overpaid, aging veteran during this free agency period, sending a fifth-round pick to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for running back/all-purpose weapon Darren Sproles. This is a swap that would’ve been fresh and exciting maybe two years ago. Now, Sproles is…

  14. New Eagles linebacker was Abercrombie model, kicked out of school for mushrooms

    Mar 12, 2014, 1:12 PM EDT

    Bryan Braman, Pat McAfee

    The Philadelphia Eagles continued going about their understated free agency plans by bolstering their special teams on Wednesday. The team signed safety Chris Maragos and linebacker Bryan Braman, two little-known players who are expected to upgrade the kick coverage units and compete for playing time on defense. Braman is of particular interest. The 26-year-old tends…

  15. Safety First: Eagles agree to 3-year deal with Malcolm Jenkins

    Mar 11, 2014, 5:27 PM EDT

    Malcolm Jenkins, DeAngelo Williams

    Just one hour into the start of free agency, the Philadelphia Eagles made the move everybody was anticipating. Whether it’s the player everybody wanted remains to be seen. No, it’s not Jairus Byrd or T.J. Ward, but it is a safety. The Eagles have agreed to terms with Malcolm Jenkins on a three-year contract worth…

  16. Patrick Chung’s reign of terror in Philly is over

    Mar 11, 2014, 4:51 PM EDT

    Rashad Jennings, Patrick Chung

    Celebrate good times, c’mon! No, the Philadelphia Eagles haven’t completed any big free-agent signings just yet (outside of re-upping punter Donnie Jones for three years—more to come). However, they did manage to do one better. The team announced the release of safety-in-name-only Patrick Chung on Tuesday, marking the end of his one-year reign of terror…

  17. As free agency opens, remember the Eagles are not one player away

    Mar 11, 2014, 3:45 PM EDT

    Kiko Alonso, Jairus Byrd, Vincent Jackson

    General manager Howie Roseman has spent much of the offseason preparing Philadelphia Eagles fans for a cautious approach to free agency. He stressed the organization is not going to overpay for talent and was even caught dropping an S-bomb—“stop-gap.” I feel dirty just repeating it. Of course, that hasn’t stopped fans from clamoring for both…

  19. The700Level’s update on NFL free agency: overrated so far

    Mar 10, 2014, 4:05 PM EDT

    Mike Mitchell

    Free agency is set to open in the NFL at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, but already we’ve been inundated by reports that the Philadelphia Eagles are interested in this free agent and talking to that free agent. Thanks to the so-called “legal tampering” period the league instituted last year, teams were allowed to begin negotiating…

  23. Eagles, Cedric Thornton agree to 1-year deal

    Mar 3, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    cedric-thornton

    Free agency is now little more than a week away in the NFL, but hang on, the Philadelphia Eagles aren’t finished signing their own players yet. On Monday, the team agreed to a one-year deal with defensive end Cedric Thornton. Because he has only two years NFL experience, Thornton was an “exclusive rights” free agent,…

  24. Jeremy Maclin agrees to 1-year deal

    Feb 28, 2014, 4:37 PM EDT

    maclin

    And just like that, another chapter of Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver drama comes to a close—with a cliffhanger ending of course. The team agreed to terms with impending free-agent wide receiver Jeremy Maclin on Friday, however on a one-year contract that puts the two sides in roughly the same position 12 months from now. The…

    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,…
