The Philadelphia Eagles are in a different position than they have ever really been in under Andy Reid. The team is coming off a failure of a season, but interestingly they don’t exactly have many needs to fill and possess a wealth of talent.
Even more interesting, that talent is spread around on both sides of the ball.
The Eagles have a good offensive line, Pro Bowl caliber players at every skill position as well as across the defensive line and in the defensive backfield.
The biggest trouble areas come at the safety position, where the Eagles have spent consecutive second-round picks, at outside linebacker, in the return game and many would argue that a big “red zone target” is needed.
With the current roster makeup, the Eagles aren’t a team in desperate need of training camp bodies, but they can use depth across the board.
Here are five players that are, at the very least, intriguing prospects to add to the current mix.
Janzen Jackson, Safety, McNe...

Mary Kay Cabot, of the Plain Dealer in Cleveland, reported that the Philadelphia Eagles are one of four teams interested in trading up to the No. 4 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
Not to discredit Cabot, who’s reputation is solid, but it seems awfully convenient that the report comes out of Cleveland. The Browns, as you may know, are the holders of the No. 4 pick.
There are several good scenarios that could befall the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2012 NFL draft. However, today I wanted to express what I consider to be the best scenario that would benefit the Eagles the most in 2012 and beyond.
Recently, I wrote about some Eagles draft tendencies followed by an exercise in reasonable deduction to narrow down who they actually might select in...
The Eagles have tried to use Chad Hall as a hybrid type of player in their offense. University of Florida running back Chris Rainey projects to have the same type of role in the NFL and the Eagles seem to think he could be an option for them, bringing Rainey in for a private workout.
At 5-8 and 180 pounds, Rainey is by no means a big guy. Chad Hall actually has seven pounds on...
Troubled 2012 NFL draft prospect CB Janoris Jenkins is scheduled to meet with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, according to Ralph Vacchiano or the New York Daily News.
Based on just his skill level, most draft scouts have Jenkins rated as a first-round caliber cornerback in this year’s draft. However, it’s his off-the-field issues that...
Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill told Sirius XM NFL Radio he has held a visit with the Philadelphia Eagles. Originally projected as a third or fourth round draft pick, Hill has rocketed up some analysts’ draft boards, following his magnificent combine workout where he ran a 4.36 40-yard dash and wowed observers with his pure athleticism. NFL.com went as far as comparing...
A harmless if imprudent quote from Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback Vince Young brought about a storm of criticism and backlash, especially when the Eagles stumbled to a disappointing 1-4 start to the 2011 season. Michael Vick missed three games and was alarmingly inconsistent at times; Nnamdi Asomugha rarely resembled the league’s top shutdown cornerback; DeSean
Vince Young was most known last season for his “Dream Team” comments and for looking incredibly lost in the Eagles West Coast Offense. A report from Bleeding Green Nation says that Vince Young recently asked Andy Reid about returning to the Eagles in 2012 and the answer may surprise you… “One of the biggest things [...]
Last year was supposed to be the year for the Philadelphia Eagles. You had to feel good about it. After watching other teams scoop free agents and add big name talent for years, the Eagles organization stepped out of character and went on a spending free, seemingly gobbling up every big name available. Then something went horribly awry.
A team that was already facing a lookout shortened...
It's easy to forget as we scout the individual glamor positions in the upcoming NFL Draft, but special teams talent goes a long way in evaluating a guy's ability to make a roster and contribute to winning in this league...Take a guy like Colt Anderson, Eagles' safety and special teamer who has for the past three months come to NovaCare Complex every day to rehab his...
One year after Vince Young arguably jinxed his new team, The Philadelphia Eagles, by proclaiming them “The Dream Team”, Young is talking again. But this time it’s a totally different issue. Vince Young wants to play for the Texans.
” I would love to play at home. That would be a dream come true and anything I can do to help out with the team,” Young told KILT in Houston...
Listening to my buddy and former NFL star wide receiver Qadry ("The Missile") Ismail last night on WBAL-AM radio, and he was talking about his experience as a pre-draftee prospect coming out of Syracuse back in 1993... This story is also pertinent because Qadry hails from the same hometown as our esteemed GK Emeritus Brizer... (i.e., Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania)...Qadry...
