Found March 28, 2013 on Eagles Addict:
If QB Geno Smith is on the board when the Philadelphia Eagles are on the clock at pick No. 4, Chip Kelly and Howie Roseman have a huge decision to make.  However, their decision may be made for them prior to their pick… Russe Lande over at National Football Post posted this little nugget in his latest mock draft: 3. Oakland Raiders: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia, Senior: While I believe selecting Geno Smith here would be a mistake, all the sources I speak with tell me that they are leaning this way. Smith is off the charts when it comes to character, work ethic and intangibles. Combined with his strong arm and athleticism, Smith has all the physical talent to develop into a top NFL QB, but he is a long way from a finished product. That could very well be what the Raiders do, especially when you also consider that Carson Palmer has spurned the team’s request to reduce his salary for the 2013 season.  Apparently, he may be on his way out Oakland as he would rather be a backup somewher...

Eagles WR DeSean Jackson bought your rich grandmother’s home (PICS)

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson won’t be spending his offseasons in Philly.  The Los Angeles, California native recently bought what appears to be the home of yours (or somebody’s) rich grandmother in Tarzana, California. Jackson, who just signed a five-year $47 million contract with the Eagles last offseason, should at least be given credit for not maxing out...

Report: Redskins Reach An Agreement With DE Darryl Tapp

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Redskins have reached an agreement with DE Darryl Tapp on a one-year deal. Tapp, 28, was limited to playing just 257 snaps for the Eagles last season, but despite the limited role, he’s been a fairly productive player for them, according to Pro Football Focus’ ratings. He’ll be asked to move to outside linebacker next season, but he...

Eagles player salaries for 2013...

It's tax time in America, and what better opportunity to figure out the Eagles' current payroll tax liabilities... Who's now the highest paid player on the Eagles? And with the biggest tax liability?... If you answered Jason Peters, you are correct!             Player Contract Terms Avg...

Report: Colts Trade For Eagles FB Stanley Havili

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Philadelphia Eagles have traded FB Stanley Havili to the Indianapolis Colts for DE Clifton Geathers. With the Eagles signing James Casey, who’s more of a versatile player, Havili was largely expendable now that they’ve brought in Chip Kelly as their new head coach. Havili, 25, was rated as a slightly above average fullback last season...

Philadelphia Eagles add another piece to new defense with DE Clifton Geathers

The Philadelphia Eagles continued to make moves to shore up their new defense by acquiring DE Clifton Geathers  from the Colts on Thursday in a trade, giving up fullback Stanley Havili.

Connor Barwin thanks bread, cheesecake and 'Mohawk Steve' as he leaves Texans (Photo)

NFL linebacker Connor Barwin signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as a free agent this month, ending his tenure with the Houston Texans after four seasons. Barwin followed the custom of other recent NFL free agents by taking out a full page ad in the newspaper to say thanks to his former team and their fans. However, Barwin's ad takes an extra step by including an extensive...

Connor Barwin Gives a Foodie Farewell to Houston

It seems like every departing free agent this year has taken out an ad thanking fans of the team he is leaving behind. I haven’t given the majority of them any attention on the site, mostly because that would involve writing the word “classy” more than I care to. I do, however, enjoy new Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin’s send-off to the various restaurants and eateries that...

Notebook: Childress reunites with Reid

Former Vikings coach Brad Childress is reuniting with Andy Reid in Kansas City, working on the spread game and special projects.

Report: Andy Reid Compares Geno Smith To Young Donovan McNabb

The Kansas Chiefs hold all the leverage in the upcoming 2013 NFL Draft.  They have a capable quarterback on the roster, so what they choose to do with the #1 overall pick is not of the utmost urgency. The Chiefs can draft Luke Joeckel, Shariff Floyd, Geno Smith or trade the pick to one of several teams who need a quarterback. Andy Reid is as shrewd as they come and he’s playing...
