The Linc - Time for the Eagles to play the young players

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 12/3/20. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Eagles should give their young players some experience in a lost season - PhillyVoiceQB Jalen Hurts: The debate over whether or not to bench Carson Wentz is well-covered ground, but the best argument that I’ve heard in favor of it is that if the Eagles are going to picking in the top 10 of the 2021 NFL Draft (and maybe even the top 5), they have to at least consider the idea of drafting a quarterback, especially in a year in which potentially four...

Eagles designate four practice squad protections ahead of Week 13

Eagles designate four practice squad protections ahead of Week 13

Photo by Stacy Revere/ Unpoachable. New this season, NFL teams are now permitted to protect up to four of their 16 practice squad members from being poached by other clubs on a weekly basis. The Philadelphia Eagles designated the following four players ahead of Week 13: running back Jordan Howard, offensive guard Jamon Brown, linebacker Rashad Smith, and defensive tackle Raequan Williams. JORDAN HOWARD The Eagles had success running the football with Howard against the Green Bay Packers last year. He had 15 carries for 87 yards (5.8 average) and two touchdowns in that...

Will Parks claimed by Broncos

Will Parks claimed by Broncos

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Philly native is headed back to Denver. Former Philadelphia Eagles safety Will Parks is headed back to the Denver Broncos. His old team claimed him off waivers on Wednesday, according to BGN alumnus and NJ.com writer Mike Kaye. Kaye adds that the Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers also put claims in but were beat out by the Broncos, who rank 13th in the waiver order (same as the 2021 NFL Draft order). The Eagles unexpectedly waived Parks on Tuesday. They hadn’t been playing him much and they apparently want to get a look at some of...

Eagles Injury Report: Fletcher Cox misses practice, Zach Ertz limited

Eagles Injury Report: Fletcher Cox misses practice, Zach Ertz limited

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ This is a new one. The Philadelphia Eagles issued their first official injury report on Wednesday in advance of their Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers. Two players DID NOT PRACTICE: Fletcher Cox and Rudy Ford. Cox’s absence wasn’t expected. He’s apparently dealing with a neck injury. Cox has only missed three games in his career and none since October 2017. Wouldn’t expect him to be out but this injury is obviously worth monitoring. Ford could be on track to miss his third straight game and his seventh this season. Two players...

Eagles are 8.5 point underdogs to the Packers in Week 13

Eagles are 8.5 point underdogs to the Packers in Week 13

Photo by Dylan Buell/ As expected. I don’t know about you but something makes me feel like the Philadelphia Eagles aren’t going march into Lambeau Field and escape with a win over the Green Bay Packers for the second year in a row. Maybe it has something to do with how bad the Eagles’ offense looks right now? That could be it. Then again, the Eagles didn’t exactly need their passing attack firing on all cylinders to beat Green Bay last year. Carson Wentz only had 160 passing yards (5.9 per attempt) in that game. It was Philly’s rushing attack that gave the...

Eagles sign cornerback with starting experience to practice squad

Eagles sign cornerback with starting experience to practice squad

More CB depth. The Philadelphia Eagles officially signed free agent cornerback Kevon Seymour to their practice squad on Wednesday afternoon. Seymour, 26, has some starting experience in the NFL. The 2016 sixth-round pick logged three starts in 15 games with the Buffalo Bills as a rookie. He started two games with the Carolina Panthers in 2017 and hasn’t appeared in a regular season game since. Seymour spent the 2018 season on injured reserve and then got released by the Panthers during roster cuts ahead of the 2019 season. The Eagles currently only have four full-time...

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Roster news. The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced some roster moves on Wednesday. An overview: TE Zach Ertz activated from injured reserve. WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside activated from reserve/COVID-19 list. OT Lane Johnson placed on injured reserve. ZACH ERTZ Ertz suffered a high ankle injury during the Eagles’ Week 6 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He was originally placed on IR ahead of Week 7. Ertz wasn’t having a very good season prior to getting hurt. His 45 targets only produced 24 receptions for 178 yards (very low 7.4...

NFL execs predict Carson Wentz’s future: Why his contract is such a burden for the Philadelphia Eagles - ESPN+One AFC exec who thinks the Eagles should find an exit strategy with Wentz as early as next year believes that perhaps the North Dakota State product isn’t built for the big stage. From Steve McNair to Joe Flacco, many small-school signal-callers have had sustained NFL success. But Wentz never faced elite competition in college, so it has...

S Grayland Arnold promoted from the practice squad to the roster. DE Shareef Miller released from the practice squad. WILL PARKS Parks broke the news that he was being waived earlier on Tuesday. Curious move. GRAYLAND ARNOLD The Eagles paid Arnold, whom they had a draftable grade on, the fourth highest guarantee out of their 13 UDFA signings. Arnold showed some promise in training camp and...

Eagles waive Will Parks

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Unexpected departure for the Philadelphia native. The Eagles waived Will Parks on Tuesday afternoon. The Philadelphia native announced his departure via Twitter: Philly it’s been real. Thanks for opportunity. I did everything I could. Love. ✌ — William (@PhillyWill11) December 1, 2020 This move wasn’t exactly expected. Then again, the Eagles did reportedly make Parks available prior to the NFL trade deadline. It seems like Parks may have been unhappy with his playing time. Upon the Eagles signing him in March, there was...

Eagles vs. Seahawks snap counts: Playing Alshon Jeffery over Travis Fulgham is malpractice

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Playing time tracker. Time to analyze the Philadelphia Eagles’ snap counts from their Week 12 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. OFFENSE Jordan Mailata and Matt Pryor played the whole game at left tackle and right tackle, respectively. Mailata actually graded out as the Eagles’ best offensive player by Pro Football Focus! So dumb that the Eagles were refusing to play him. Nice to see a potential long-term piece like Dallas Goedert have another strong game. Seven receptions for 75 yards and one touchdown after having five for 77...

Jeffrey Lurie’s 7 options for Eagles: Kapadia on Pederson, Roseman, what’s next - The AthleticAs for Howie Roseman, I realize I’m repeating myself, but the roster is old, expensive and bad, and their cap situation is among the messiest in the league. The 2021 offseason has to be about having a smart vision for the next three to five years. That starts with the draft. It’s not just that the Eagles have failed in identifying talent under...

2021 NFL Draft Order: Eagles move up to six and have a chance to finish even higher

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ The bright side of being awful! You might not want to hear this but the reality is that the Philadelphia Eagles’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks was a good thing. It might sting in the short-term but it’s in the Birds’ best interest to keep losing games. Jeffrey Lurie needs to be prompted to clean house. The Eagles also stand to benefit from having a very high pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. On that note, the Eagles are now slated to pick at No. 6 overall. Here’s an updated look at the non-playoff team order via Tankathon: And...

Jim Schwartz apparently gave D.K. Metcalf extra motivation to go off against the Eagles

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Cool, cool. D.K. Metcalf already had plenty of reason to have a great game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night. He obviously wanted to help his Seattle Seahawks stay atop the NFC West. But the star wide receiver apparently received even more motivation from Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. Metcalf said the following after Monday’s game: Q: What’s your mindset going into a game when you know or you feel like you’re going to see a lot of an opposing team’s No. 1 cornerback? METCALF: I’m happy. I’m getting a...
