    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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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,…

  8. 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…

    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…

  13. 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…

    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…

    Former team president Joe Banner spent 18 years in the Philadelphia Eagles’ front office. When it’s all said and done, he’ll have lasted 19 months as chief executive officer of the Cleveland Browns. The Browns announced on Tuesday that Banner would “step down” as CEO after the draft in May, likely signaling the club’s tumultuous…

  18. Did the Seattle Seahawks remake the NFL with their Super Bowl win?

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:55 PM EDT

    Peyton Manning,Cliff Avril

    “The way the game is today, none of these offensive records will last.” Those are the words of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning after he broke the NFL’s single-season record for touchdown passes back in Week 16. The five-time league MVP even quipped Tom Brady would “probably break it again next year.” Funny, but there…

    By and large, football fans across the country are picking the Denver Broncos to defeat the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. This is what I could gather from offhand conversations with friends and associates over the past two weeks as well as this super scientific poll on ESPN.com. Two-thirds of the country apparently believes…

  20. Is expanding the NFL playoffs a good or bad thing?

    Feb 1, 2014, 12:25 PM EDT

    linc

    It seems like everything is constantly growing in today’s super-size culture, especially in professional sports where it’s the rule, not the exception and the bubble never seems to burst. Major League Baseball added two teams to the postseason, inventing a dumbfounding one-game playoff in a sport that almost exclusively holds series of three games or…

  21. Jason Kelce, embarrassment to mankind, only eats 65 wings at Wing Bowl

    Jan 31, 2014, 10:32 AM EDT

    kelce-wings

    This tiny woman ate 363 wings. Matt Stairs was chugging beers like he’s Stone Cold Steve Austin in a Phillies jersey. What did Jason Kelce do? He ate 65 wings in 14 minutes. All that hype, and Kelce didn’t even qualify for the second round. Disgraceful. Doesn’t it seem like the center for the Philadelphia…

    vick-run-gmen

    In a matter of weeks, Michael Vick will become a free agent. Once upon a time, this would’ve been big news in the NFL, but with two career playoff wins and soon to be 34 years of age, he’ll probably have to be less than discriminating to find a starting job. That doesn’t seem to…

    How is Jeremy Maclin’s recovery coming along? You be the judge. The Philadelphia Eagles Tweeted this Instagram video of the wide receiver running sprints at the NovaCare Comlex on Monday, and he appears to be moving around pretty well. Maclin missed all of 2013 with a torn ACL suffered in training camp. Oh, who are…

    Full disclosure: I didn’t spend one second watching the Pro Bowl. If you did happen to tune in though, you witnessed the latest chapter in the legend of Nick Foles. The quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles connected on seven of 10 pass attempts for 89 yards and a touchdown to Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan…
