He flashed serious talent and expectations were high going into the season. Jones played well early on.

Busting six myths from the Eagles’ 2018 season

Busting six myths from the Eagles’ 2018 season

Some things you think you thought about the 2018 Eagles weren’t actual things. During the course of the 2018 Philadelphia Eagles season, a lot of people said a lot of things about the team that would eventually go 9-7 and reach the NFC Divisional round of the playoffs. Some of the stuff made a lot of sense and turned out to be true. Carson Wentz was clearly dealing with something that sapped his mobility and play-making ability. That something turned out to be a back fracture that forced him to miss the final three games of the regular season and two playoff games as well. There were some...

But he remains a pass-rush force on the edge and would be a nice addition for any team. His age might make his contract different from some of the others on this list. 21) Nick Foles: It looks like he’s going to hit the market if the Eagles don’t franchise tag him. If he does, he will be the top quarterback available. The...

AAF Players with NFL Futures: Week 1 Edition

AAF Players with NFL Futures: Week 1 Edition

A few noteworthy takeaways from the newest football league QB John Wolford, Arizona Hotshots The 23-year-old quarterback took the nation by storm with a tremendous four-touchdown, zero-interception performance in his AAF debut. For those not familiar with Wolford, the former Wake Forest Demon Deacon was signed by the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent just a week before the start of the 2018 season. After participating in a rookie camp with the Jets, Wolford’s football career had seemingly come to end. After being rostered for just 10 days and playing your Philadelphia Eagles, he...

The Linc - It’s time for the Eagles to find an answer at running back

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 2/16/19. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... This offseason, Eagles need to finally find stability at running back - NBCSPIn the four years since Shady has been gone, the Eagles have drafted just two running backs. They took Smallwood in the fifth round of the 2016 draft and took Donnel Pumphrey in the fourth round of the 2017 draft. Smallwood has at least developed into a serviceable backup/rotational player, but Pumphrey hasn’t played a single snap in the NFL. Looking at the position now, there are obvious questions marks just with...

Ranking the top 5 offensive tackles in the 2019 NFL Draft

Ranking the top 5 offensive tackles in the 2019 NFL Draft

Looking for the next bodyguard... The NFL Combine is fast-approaching and the Philadelphia Eagles will get a chance to get a close look at several prospects at a key position. When it comes to left tackle, the Eagles can’t afford to kick the can for much longer. It’s a glaring need for obvious reasons. The Eagles’ need to make a decision on Jason Peters and he has his own decision to make regarding possible retirement. Halapoulivaati Vaitai regressed in 2018 and was never coming from a starting caliber baseline to begin with. It’s way too early to gauge Jordan Mailata’s future or...

Eagles cap casualty candidates, Golden Tate vs. Nelson Agholor, Nick Foles trade talk, and more

BGN Radio Episode 37! The NFL offseason is slowly chugging along but thankfully there are still some Philadelphia Eagles topics to talk about. John Stolnis and I got together to discuss the following on the latest BGN Radio episode: The Broncos trade for Joe Flacco — how does it impact Nick Foles and the Eagles, if at all? The Jaguars seem to be the favorites, but what happens if the Foles market shrinks entirely? Is it impossible that Foles would just retire? If you’re keeping one of Nelson Agholor and Golden Tate, who are you keeping? Is it possible the Eagles might not bring either...

Carson Wentz hasn’t gotten the best out of Alshon Jeffery

Carson Wentz hasn’t gotten the best out of Alshon Jeffery

Room for improvement Like a lot of people watching the Sixers-Celtics game earlier in the week, I found it interesting that Carson Wentz and Alshon Jeffery were hanging at the game together. Grew up watching this guy tear up the league and even made some homemade cards of him that I just recently found!

The Linc - Shrinking market for Nick Foles?

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 2/15/19. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... How Joe Flacco trade influences Eagles’ options with Nick Foles - ESPNThe market for Foles seems small based on this exercise, and it would shrink further if he had to be acquired via trade. The Jaguars appear to be the most likely landing spot. The Eagles have plenty of incentive to work out a tag-and-trade. They not only would get value in return -- the Ravens are expected to receive a midround pick in return for Flacco, which seems reasonable -- but also would ensure Foles doesn’t end up...

Should the Eagles get even younger at cornerback?

Should the Eagles get even younger at cornerback?

Interesting situation. The story of the Eagles’ cornerbacks in 2018 was akin to the Rebel Alliance of the early Star Wars movies. They were a rag-tag bunch of young guns playing way above expectations to help catapult the Eagles to a playoff berth. Despite losing the likes of Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby early in the season, a scrappy group of Avonte Maddox, Cre’Von Leblanc, Rasul Douglas, Tre Sullivan and Chandon Sullivan played enough good football to hold the defense together down the stretch. Heading into the offseason, the Eagles are in a weird spot regarding the position. They...
