First, the mandatory headlines: the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday signed quarterback Nick Foles to a four-year contract. The Eagles drafted Foles, who played at Arizona, in the third round. They also released QB Jacory Harris (Miami), who we knew was rookie minicamp cannon fodder, but at least Jacory got some time and attention in the NFL spotlight...and may yet catch on with another team.
Foles set career records at Arizona in yards passing (10,011), touchdowns (67), attempts (1,369) and completions (933). He is the No. 4 quarterback on the Eagles' roster, behind Mike Vick, Mike Kafka and Trent Edwards.
First-round pick Fletcher Cox remains the Eagles' lone unsigned draft pick. He will be permitted to participate in the upcoming OTA sessions which open today at NovaCare Complex in Philly...if his agent allows it.One of the great legacy commenters here at Eagles Eye and for many years before over at PE.com's OTI has been the legendary T-Boner, who I like to think ch...

Since the completion of the 2012 NFL Draft and spring rookie workouts, we’ve heard a lot of buzz about how the new acquisitions look, sound, feel, and possibly even smell. But let’s take a deeper glance into the new class of rookies. Let us go beyond Andrew Luck, past Robert Griffin III, around Trent Richardson, and
Casey Matthews has bulked up from 232 pounds to 250 under the tutelage of his brother Clay (Green Bay Packers)... the idea is to become bigger so it's easier to shed those medium-downfield blocks by the 300-pound OL behemoths of the NFL. Some folks worry that the extra weight will slow Casey down in nickel coverage of pass receivers... Does that really matter in this stage...
Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham told the media on Tuesday that he’s a “bust,” and the criticism that he’s received has motivated him to prove people wrong.
At least Graham isn’t in denial that he’s completely under achieved after being drafted in the first round of the 2010 draft.
The 24 year-old Graham only played in three games this past...
The Philadelphia Eagles have been an NFL franchise since 1933 and over the course of the past 79 years, many great players have donned the winged helmet (or leather helmet).
However, most of the great Philadelphia Eagles players we remember were drafted, either by the Eagles themselves or by another team before they came to Philly.
So while we all pay tribute to greatest of Eagles...
LeSean McCoy had a career high 321 touches in 2011 (273 carries, 48 catches), up from 285 in 2010 (207 carries, 78 catches). As he is a smaller running back, there was some talk that the Eagles could cut his touches this season, according to Head Coach Andy Reid. This made some sense. The Eagles have been talking up backup Dion Lewis this offseason and added two rookie backs that...
Since the Eagles drafted him with the 13th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, defensive end Brandon Graham has been hampered by injuries. If you consider 16 tackles and three sacks in two seasons contributing, I guess you could argue that he has been an asset for the Eagles. Otherwise, he has been a major disappointment. Fortunately for Eagles fans, Graham seems to embrace being...
The Eagles took Brandon Graham 13th overall in the 2010 NFL Draft, a pick that has been widely criticized since, especially since the divisional rival New York Giants selected Jason Pierre-Paul 2 picks later. However, Graham’s struggles so far have not exactly been the Eagles’ fault or anything they could have foreseen. Graham has had a lot of issues with injuries in his first...
Vince Young, Ronnie Brown and Steve Smith are gone.
Indeed, the Dream Team is now simply the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles.
Coming off a disappointing 8-8 season, the Eagles reconvened as a full team Tuesday for the first time since missing the playoffs last year. It was a season that was defined when Young deemed the Eagles a ''Dream Team'' in training camp after the...

Regardless of where they came from, or when they formulated, they must be addressed.
Here are 10 issues that the Eagles will face...

We are now a few months removed from the last game played by the Philadelphia Eagles, which means we are still a few months away from training camp. The conclusion of the football season is when players with nagging injuries take the time to get their ailments addressed so that they can utilize the long offseason to rest, recover, and rehab.Then there are the injuries...
Two years later after being drafted 13th overall by the Eagles, defensive end Brandon Graham is most familiar with the flip side of being a top selection: pressure, scrutiny, high expectations and harsh criticism for falling short. Those realities all tail him as he enters a critical third season in the NFL, still trying to make his mark with the Eagles. "I haven't [done...
Philadelphia Eagles all pro running back LeSean “Shady” McCoy will be having plenty of happy days to celebrate besides Mother’s Day after inking a a five-year extension worth $45 million with $20.765 million guaranteed.
After posting 1,309 yards rushing and 17 rushing touchdowns Shady has placed in himself in the best back in the league conversation.
That is a nice thing to say, but the reality of the situation is if the Eagles aren’t Championship contenders this year, they both will be gone.
Won’t be anything to watch since they will both be fishing with Donovan McNabb.
Asked by ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio about talk that Reid is on the hot seat entering the season, and may lose his job if the Eagles miss the playoffs...
