Eagles first team recap: Cameron Johnston looked good

Eagles first team recap: Cameron Johnston looked good

Defense wasn’t too shabby either The Eagles second preseason game isn’t over yet, but the first team offense and defense are done for the night. One of them never really got started. The Eagles first team offense (well, 7.5/11ths of it, with Carson Wentz, Alshon Jeffery, and Nelson Agholor sidelined) looked brutal. The offensive line put Nick Foles under pressure too often, Foles was inaccurate even when he had a clean pocket, and none of the receivers stepped up. The only positives were that Jay Ajayi ran hard and Cameron Johnston got a lot of chances to show that his practice...

Nelson Agholor is a top 10 deep threat, according to NFL analyst

Nelson Agholor is a top 10 deep threat, according to NFL analyst

Take those tops off, Nelly! Entering his fourth season in the NFL, wide receiver Nelson Agholor has had one of the most interesting career arcs in recent history. From “bust” to “boom”, he’s shown the mental toughness required to overcome adversity required to thrive in the league. The folks over at NFL.com, namely Matt Harmon, have taken notice while recognizing his ability to take the top off the defense. In ranking the top deep threats entering the 2018 season, Harmon praised Agholor’s play-making ability on passes that travel over 20-yards in the air. “Agholor looked at...

13 observations from the final Eagles training camp practice of 2018

13 observations from the final Eagles training camp practice of 2018

Here’s what we learned on Tuesday. Today marked the 15th and FINAL day of 2018 Philadelphia Eagles training camp. The Eagles had a 10-10-10 day so practice was lighter than usual. Here’s what I observed. • Daily Carson Wentz update: Today marked the 12th practice in a row with Wentz not participating in 11-on-11. The Eagles really only do 11-on-11 during 10-10-10 days so Wentz didn’t do much besides some rehab work off to the side on a separate field. • Injury updates: In addition to the guys on the NFI/PUP lists, the following players missed practice: Nelson Agholor, Corey...

Donnel Pumphrey among Eagles players out for Steelers game

Not great. The NFL doesn’t require teams to have official inactive lists for preseason games but thanks to the power of observation we have some idea of which Philadelphia Eagles players won’t suit up for the team’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight. The following #Eagles aren't dressed for tonight's preseason opener: Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace, Alshon Jeffery, Markus Wheaton, Matt Jones, Donnel Pumphrey, Ian Park, Tim Jernigan, Brandon Graham, Asantay Brown, Chris Maragos.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) August 9, 2018 We know Wentz, Foles...

Philadelphia Eagles: Nelson Agholor, Darren Sproles to return kickoffs?

The Philadelphia Eagles could have a different look on kick returns this season. It’s been a while since the Philadelphia Eagles have had a permanent kick returner.

Philadelphia Eagles: Nelson Agholor looks even better this time around

Philadelphia Eagles breakout star Nelson Agholor is having another strong training camp this year.

Nelson Agholor labeled a fantasy “bust” by PFF

The Nelson Also Rises? PFF says not so fast.. Not many stories can top Nelson Agholor’s breakout campaign in 2017. The embattled wide receiver overcame poor play and mental road blocks to shed the bust label in a truly inspiring performance. Kicking inside to a slot role, investing in his mental health via sports psychology, and eliminating troubling drops all contributed to his path to becoming a darling of the fan base that once loathed him. People forget... Wentz with the on the move bucket flick in a critical situation - pic.twitter.com/jQ3utVG4tZ— Michael Kist (@MichaelKistNFL)...
