Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 8/19/18. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Eagles turn Redskins’ trash into potential long-term find in Nate Sudfeld - PhillyVoiceAt a minimum, Sudfeld is a clear roster-worthy NFL player.

What should we do with BGN’s “Breaking News: THE EAGLES ARE SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS!” banner?

It’s time to hear from you. Bleeding Green Nation’s current “Breaking News” banner has been up now ever since February 4. That’s the day that the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl.

Eagles fans deserve to forever bask in the franchise’s first ever Super Bowl win. But while there will be eternal gratitude for bringing the Lombardi Trophy to Philadelphia, there will also always be a desire for the Eagles to do it again. And again. And...

Brent Celek would rather retire than play for Cowboys - NBCSPBut appearing Friday on 97.5 The Fanatic, Celek did the one thing guaranteed to get you in any Eagles fan’s good graces — diss the Cowboys. ”Hell no.

Nick Foles injury update: Eagles quarterback not expected to have prolonged recovery

Smith originally signed with the Seahawks shortly after being released by the Eagles in late July last year. He had eight tackles, 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles,...
