If the Philadelphia Eagles pursue safety Kenny Phillips in free agency, they might be able to thank LeSean McCoy for making it possible. If you don’t recall, it was McCoy who put a juke on Phillips in Week 4 of 2012 that caused him to twist his knee and do some damage to his MCL and PCL.

That play knocked Phillips out of the game and basically turned the 2012 season into a lost season for him. He returned in Week 12 but re-aggravated his injury the following week and didn’t return again until Week 17. This was Phillips’ second season in his five-year career that was cut short by an injury.
Here’s a snapshot of the McCoy-induced knee buckle…

Because of that, it’s quite possible that the Giants will not even try to re-sign him. In 2009, Phillips was placed on IR after needing micro-fracture surgery on his left knee due to a condition called “patellofemoral arthritis.”
So, why should the Eagles be intere...

Although offensive tackle Luke Joeckel has been getting a lot of attention, small school product Eric Fisher is making a strong case that he should be the top offensive tackle off the board in this years NFL Draft. Out of Central Michigan, Fisher stands at 6-7 and 306 pounds. Despite the prototypical offensive tackle frame, Fisher showed some versatility, playing guard at times...
SecondaryTags: Nmandi AsomughaPhiladelphia EaglesFirst there was a report and tweet by Howard Eskin of 94WIP and FOX29 earlier today that the Birds were going to release cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha today. Then there was a tweet by Philly.com’s Jeff McLane that the Eagles weren’t going to release Asomugha today.
Now Eskin is admitting...
It seems like just yesterday that teams from all over the NFL were stuck in a bidding war for Nnamdi Asomugha. The Eagles eventually won the cornerback’s rights, which led to Vince Young dubbing Philadelphia the “Dream Team.”
The “Dream Team” moniker didn’t last with the Eagles, and neither did Asomugha. The team will release the 31-year-old corner on Wednesday, according...
NewsTags: Nnamdi AsomughaPhiladelphia EaglesAt some point today, we may have an answer about Nnamdi Asomugha’s future with the Eagles. And then again, we may not.

According to Les Bowen of Philly.com, both the Eagles and Texans have reached out to Eric Winston following his release from the Chiefs last night. Word is, the Eagles were one of the first two teams to reach out to Drew Rosenhaus, who represents Winston, and so many other former Miami Hurricanes. The other team to express immediate interest apparently was the Texans, who drafted...
Someone isn’t telling the truth.
First report this morning were saying Nnamdi was gone, but now there is a lot of conflicting information.
Source tells me Eagles are NOT planning to release Nnamdi today. So, there’s that. #PrematureNnamdilation

Michael Vick, the perennially sacked Eagles quarterback, who just accepted a significant pay cut to remain the QB for Philadelphia, seems to be getting more chances at redemption than Charlie Sheen. Vick, who’s notorious for serving 23 months in prison for his role in the gruesome dogfighting ring in which pit bulls were trained to be vicious and many were killed and drowned in...

The best kind of DeSean Jackson is one that’s engaged, involved, active, blazing around the corners of defenses, juking and hopping before weak-kneed defenders, taunting opponents and fans with equal fervor and, yes, a nuclear level of douchiness.
That was not 2012 Jackson. The guy you snatched in the late fifth or early sixth round of last year’s fantasy drafts posted abysmal...
