Let’s go to Philadelphia Eagles Links …
Eagles ‘talking a lot’ about intriguing second-round WR option – NBCSP
And that’s exactly what Kyle Brandt reported Tuesday morning on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football about the Eagles and a very intriguing wide receiver prospect. Here’s what Brandt reported on Terrace Marshall Jr. “This kid is 6-3, catches 10 touchdowns in seven games before going out for the rest of the season. You think they have all these guys, and they do. This is another one, a great explosive playmaker that they can chase after. He’s been talking to the Eagles a lot, so we’ll see. “ Very interesting! By trading the No. 6 pick, the Eagles effectively pulled out of the race for fellow LSU wide receiver and likely top-6 pick Ja’Marr Chase. They also at least hurt his chances of picking one of Alabama’s wide receiver duos in Devonta Smith or Jaylen Waddle a bit.
Weapon X Mail Bag: Which player would get the worst reaction at pick 12? – BGN
Look, I think if we go for the prototypical Howie Roseman move, it’s Gregory Rousseau from Miami. I wouldn’t call “low production” a Howie hallmark. Think how often we hear that Derek Barnett broke Reggie White’s record for sacks at Tennessee despite his poor athletic testing at the combine. They recruited Donnel Pumphrey, a guy who ultimately never took a snap in the NFL, and is the all-time leader of the NCAA’s FBS Division I in rushing yards. Rousseau was left out of the 2020 season, so his stock has tumbled a bit, so that’s where Howie’s “smartest guy in the room” mentality comes in. “People forget the 2019 college season” is the new “other teams don’t stay up late to watch PAC-12 games.” He is young for his class, having just turned 21 on April 5, just like Barnett was quite young for his draft class and still only 24 years old (he will turn 25 on June 25). Going back to production, the guy CAME OUT IN THE U as a red-shirt freshman in 2019, with a total of 19.5 tackles for loss and a whopping 15.5 sacks. It’s not a particularly strong EDGE group this year, but if we get a standard Howie pick at 1-12, I think it would be Rousseau and I’d agree (assuming both Alabama receivers are gone).

Historically, the Eagles’ traded quarterbacks have sucked with their new teams – PhillyVoice
The Philadelphia Eagles trade their quarterbacks. A lot. But it had been a while since they traded an unhappy Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts in February. The Eagles’ most recently traded quarterback was the one who gave way to Wentz, Sam Bradford, AKA Sleeves, AKA Sammy Sleeves, AKA Sleevie Wonder, in 2016. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and see how they fared. those quarterbacks with their new teams. Spoiler: Bad. That’s not to say that the Eagles have exactly superimposed on all of their trading partners, as the players they drafted with picks acquired on those trades haven’t exactly lit the world either.
Domino effect – Iggles Blitz
I don’t think the Eagles are going to OT, but we can’t rule it out. Slater, Sewell and Vera-Tucker are excellent prospects. However, the Eagles OL could be the strength of the team. With so many other holes to fill, going elsewhere would make more sense. Lane Johnson isn’t getting any younger, so the national team can always be considered to be about the future. I’m just thinking that 12 will be something other than OL. I wonder what will happen if Chase drops a few points. How much do the Eagles like it? We know Howie isn’t afraid to trade up and down the draft. A less likely scenario would be backing down, but anything is possible. That would make sense if the Eagles’ goals were gone and they felt the best value was going back a few places.
Could these six teams win the NFL offseason? Why the Packers, Saints, Eagles, Rams, Colts and Falcons have been quiet; what’s next – ESPN +
Why? It’s clear that the Eagles will eat their veggies in 2021 in hopes of being able to enjoy cake next year. Trading Wentz forced them to absorb a whopping $ 33.8 million dead capital; freeing Jackson and eventually adding Jeffery to the pile will push Philadelphia north of $ 40 million in dead money this season. If you find a business partner for Ertz before June 1, that number could approach $ 50 million. However, next year, the Eagles are projected to have nearly $ 32 million in capitalization space. They could have up to three first-round picks after trading with the Dolphins while they get a conditional pick from the Colts. If Jalen Hurts plays well as a starter in 2021, great! They have their quarterback of the future and all those first-round players to build around them in 2022. If he struggles, well, they’ll pick high in the 2022 draft and have two stellar picks to try and use if they need to trade more. .
The NFL supplement allows the Eagles’ Alex Singleton to nearly double the 2020 payout, but the cash is deferred
In the final season of a two-year, $ 1.08 million contract, Singleton was a steal for Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. But the NFL has a formula that awards a performance-based pay, from a pool set last year at $ 8.5 million per team. The NFL Players Association released 2020 figures from that system on Tuesday, and Singleton was the Eagles’ top earner, earning an additional $ 464,296. However, there is a catch: As part of the COVID-19 agreements between the league and the union, to lessen the impact of the one-year coronavirus on wages, performance-based money will not be paid before 2024, estimates the labor union. So Singleton has something to look forward to.
Free agent signings by age: over the limit
The other teams that added older players to the roster were the Rams (1 signing), Eagles (4) and Ravens (2).
Daniel Jeremiah draft 3.0 mock: DeVonta Smith remains the Giants’ pick – Big Blue View
I’ll do my best to be brief on this because, frankly, Jeremiah is not breaking new ground with this selection. I don’t dispute that Smith was fantastically productive for Alabama and he’s a great road runner, and that should allow him to be productive immediately in the right situation. But I’m still skeptical of him for the Giants in particular and the NFL in general. While I don’t like offering career comparisons for college prospects, they are sometimes a shortened way of describing traits. And the player I see in DeVonta Smith is a young Golden Tate coming from Notre Dame, if he had been allowed to play a modern Spread Coast offense with Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones instead of Jimmy Clausen.
KJ Wright, Richard Sherman Among The Top Free Agents The Cowboys Could Still Chase – Blogging The Boys
There hasn’t been much to report on the Sherman market. He seems content to wait until a team and a deal come together to his liking. The odds may be high, but if the Cowboys could bring in a pair of veterans like Wright and Sherman, the perception of their free agency would change.
NFL: We are monitoring the “deeply disturbing” allegations against Deshaun Watson – PFT
The first woman to file a lawsuit accusing Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson of sexual assault, revealed her identity and spoke to the media at a press conference with attorney Tony Buzbee on Tuesday. Ashley Solis called herself “a survivor of assault and stalking” at the hands of Watson, who faces 21 other civil lawsuits alleging similar behavior during massage with masseurs. Watson is also the subject of a criminal investigation by the Houston Police Department. The NFL had no comment on the initiation of that investigation, but NFL vice president of communications Brian McCarthy issued a comment Tuesday.
NFL Draft Rumor: Terry Fontenot Wants QB Draft, Arthur Smith Believes Matt Ryan Has Over 2 Years Left – The Falcoholic
The run-up to the 2021 NFL Draft is exciting and changeable, with opinions and reports. The rumor mill has been very busy lately, and it seems like we get a new rumor every day. It’s understandable since the Falcons have a new regime that has not only a former league MVP at the quarterback position, but also a top-5 pick in the upcoming draft. The latest rumor comes from ESPN Insider Chris Mortensen, who appeared on the network’s most recent draft special. When they got to the Falcons ‘pick, Mortensen shared what he heard the Falcons’ plans could be at the end of the month. What I am hearing is that [Terry] Fontenot is more focused on the quarterback, and Arthur Smith believes Matt Ryan has two or more years left. He has no real medical history, he hasn’t missed many games in his career, and there hasn’t been a big drop in his game.
