Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Matt Barkley told 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly that he plans on making an immediate impact.
“I don’t exactly know what type of system it is going to be. I probably have similar questions that you do,” said Barkley, per PhillyMag.com. “Once we get into rookie camp next week I’ll have a better idea. But in terms of what style of quarterback he needs, I have heard him say multiple times both to the public and to me personally that he is going to make the personnel he has fit in the system. So without a doubt I have confidence that I can come in right away and make an impact, or just help the team in whatever way I can.
“I don’t think it matters what people say about me and what type of quarterback I am, I think Coach Kelly will make it work.”
Barkley says his shoulder feels great.
“It feels great. It won’t bother me for the rest of my career,” he said. “It was something that took a little while just to get back to normal, but I am good to go. It should not affect the way I throw. It hasn’t hurt at all since I’ve been throwing recently. It feels strong.”
I’m not sure why kind of impact Barkley can make as a rookie. I can’t imagine him beating out both Michael Vick and Nick Foles for the starting job.

With the emphasis on size that Chip Kelly has put on most of the players the Philadelphia Eagles have acquired this offseason, I have to wonder what he thinks about the wide receiver corps.
Kelly obviously prefers athletic big guys who play physical football. However, when you think about the Eagles’ wide receivers from last year, “big” and “physical” aren’t exactly...
The Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks have been in the news a lot over the past two days.

Tim McManus of Philly Mag writes that the Eagles were reportedly approached by at least one NFL team regarding a possible trade for QB Nick Foles.
The Eagles “weren’t all that interested in engaging in talks” and McManus adds that GM Howie Roseman personally called Foles amid all the trade speculation to reiterate that he’s still a part of their plans moving forward...
In response to the 2011 All-Pro running back calling the greatest rushing quarterback in NFL history an “old man,” Michael Vick agreed to race LeSean McCoy in the 40 and “smoked him by five yards” on Thursday. Considering the 24-year-old McCoy ran the 40-yard dash in 4.50 seconds at Pittsburgh’s Pro Day in 2009, the victory proves that Bad Newz Kennels’ mastermind can...
We've hit what we call the slow news period for the NFL. Between now and training camp, not much will happened -- except things like Mike Vick beating LeSean McCoy in a race.

People questioning how Michael Vick will fit into Chip Kelly’s uptempo read option scheme need not worry about whether or not Vick can still scare defenses with his legs.
Vick will be 33 next month, but today showed he can still outrun the best of them. According to Pro Football Talk via a source close to the situation, LeSean McCoy had been Vick’s case for weeks now, calling...
Tweet People have been highly critical of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick over the past few seasons, questioning his ability and the injury-risk that he brings because of his style of play.

Well, we've got more information that you wanted to know about Trevor Scott, right here.
The long and short of it is that he was a depth defensive end for the Patriots last year. When Chandler Jones and Jermaine Cunningham were down, he stepped in and filled the void. He wasn't spectacular but he definitely made his presence felt, and was actually...
