Could Cedric Thornton return to the Philadelphia Eagles?

A familiar face from a bygone era might be making his return to the city of brotherly love. The Philadelphia Eagles recently held a workout with defensive lineman Cedric Thornton (no relation to this writer) in their ongoing search to provide depth while starting defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan recovers from back surgery. Thornton is currently […] Could Cedric Thornton return to the Philadelphia Eagles? - Inside the Iggles - Inside the Iggles - A Philadelphia Eagles Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Ranking the top 25 Eagles of 2018

Ranking the better half of the team’s projected roster The 2018 NFL season will be here before you know it, and with it, a chance for the Philadelphia Eagles to win a second straight Lombardi Trophy (yes, they really already won one.) As the new year approaches, here’s one observer’s ranking of the Eagles’ top 25 players entering 2018 (a more difficult task, we should note, when dissecting a Super Bowl-winning roster): Additional notes: Had DT Tim Jernigan not suffered what looks to be a lengthy injury and narrowly avoided an outright release from the roster, he would’ve been...

Eagles reportedly work out former Philadelphia defensive tackle

The return of Swamp? The Philadelphia Eagles recently worked out free agent defensive tackle Cedric Thornton, according to a report from Geoff Mosher. The former Eagle is one of the players we mentioned as a potential option in wake of the news that Tim Jernigan is expected to be out for at least four to six months (if not longer). Thornton, who turns 30 in June, originally signed with the Eagles as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2011. He went on to play in 61 games with Philadelphia (48 starts). Thornton was a really solid two-gapping run-stuffer as a 3-4 defensive end in the...

Report: Brandon Graham has ankle surgery, Week 1 availability unclear

Graham did this on a bum ankle To win the Super Bowl, you’ve gotta play a few extra games—and the last ones are typically at an unmatched intensity. That war on attrition can lead to lingering injuries, and the Eagles are feeling the Lombardi hangover on the medical chart. After the big bomb of Timmy Jernigan’s restructured contract and offseason herniated disc came the report on Derek Barnett’s sports hernia. And today, Tim McManus of ESPN reports that Brandon Graham could also miss time in the summer due to a lingering 2017 injury: Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham recently...

Eagles Offseason Evaluations: DT Elijah Qualls

Could Qualls fill the potential early-season void at defensive tackle? I loved the Elijah Qualls pick the day it was made. My 121st player fell to 214 (likely due to frame concerns, as we’ll see), and provided big-time value for an Eagles team with both DTs Timmy Jernigan and Beau Allen in a contract year, and only UDFAs Destiny Vaeao and Aziz Shittu behind them. The defensive tackle cards largely fell Philadelphia’s way during the 2017 (Super Bowl winning) season, however: Jernigan played quite well next to all-star Fletcher Cox, Beau Allen put out one of his best seasons to date, and...

Evaluating the top defensive tackle options for the Eagles following the Tim Jernigan injury news

What should the Birds do? The Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive tackle depth took a hit with the news that Tim Jernigan, who had surgery on a herniated disc, could be out until November. Jernigan is reportedly expected to make a full recovery, but the fact that the Eagles un-guaranteed a large portion of his contract indicates there’s still long-term concern about the injury. If the season started today, Fletcher Cox and Haloti Ngata would be locked in as the Eagles’ starters at defensive tackle. The depth beyond that is unsettled. And that’s not an insignificant problem to have...
