Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 6/16/19. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Ask a former NFL player: Were the Eagles right to let Nick Foles leave? - SB NationThe Eagles made the right decision in letting Nick Foles leave in free agency. The two-game stretch to end the Eagles’ Super Bowl run by Foles will never be truly appreciated. Not only did a backup QB win a Super Bowl, but he dominated in his role. He was elite. He was the Super Bowl MVP. The Eagles did a marvelous job of creating a game plan that suits what Foles does best, and he executed it. All the credit to...

It was an interesting development because Schefter previously said he didn’t expect Jenkins to be there due to an “unresolved contract situation.” Schefter isn’t wrong very often — if ever — when it comes to reporting information. So, what gives? Well, according to Schefter, the Eagles convinced Jenkins to show up this week. Here’s what he said earlier today on the 97.5 The Fanatic Morning...
