Jaiquawn Jarrett


In light of the recent injuries to Jeremy Maclin, the Eagles announced today that they have signed training camp receiver Mardy Gilyard. To make room for Gilyard, the Eagles have released underwhelming 2nd round draft choice Jaiquawn Jarrett, who at one point was drawing comparisons to Brian Dawkins by you guessed it,…the Eagles front office.

I’m surprised that Jarrett even made the 53 man roster after showing us absolutely nothing in two years of being on the team. He literally didn’t sniff the field his rookie season. This guy just isn’t an NFL player, and I give the Eagles credit for realizing their mistake and moving on.

Besides, who needs depth at safety when you have future Hall of Famers Kurt Coleman and Nate Allen back there.

If I’m Howie Roseman, I’m making a note-to-self–don’t draft anyone, and I mean anyone from Temple. (Sorry Joe and Dan Klecko)

Gilyard who was an absolute beast at the University of Cincinnati will likely see some work with the first team along with Damaris Johnson.


Why Michael Vick May Cost Andy Reid His Coaching Job in Philadelphia

Jeff Zelevansky / Getty Images Just because Andy Reid is the NFL’s longest-tenured head coach doesn’t mean his position with the Philadelphia Eagles is secured by any means. Ever since taking over in 1999, Reid has been able to elevate the Eagles franchise from mediocrity into the upper echelon of the league, but has never been able to deliver the City of Brotherly Love what...

Philadelphia Eagles: Andy Reid Deflects Blame from Mike Vick

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said on Monday that quarterback Mike Vick wasn’t the only one to blame in the disappointing display of Philadelphia’s offense on Sunday. I know [QB] Michael [Vick] took the blame yesterday [but] it’s not a one man show. That’s not what it is. Everybody had a piece of this pie starting with me and the coaches. You can’t play like...

Here on Eagles Addict I’ll be giving out weekly WTF and WTG awards to point out what made me happy and what pissed me off about the game.

Andy Reid: maclin pretty sore with hip flexor. — Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherCSN) September 10, 2012 Depending on how severe Maclin’s injury is, he could end up missing some time.  We’ll know more as the week goes on.

Eagles sneak out of Cleveland with win, calls for Foles can be heard

Eagles win despite Vicks poor play Ugly, that is the only word you can use in describing the Eagles 17-16 win over the Cleveland Browns Sunday. The fact that the Eagles won the game with 5 turnovers is nothing short of a miracle, well it did have much to do with how bad the Browns are. The Eagles defense kept them in the game, confusing rookie Brandon Weeden with coverages. Weeden completed...

Eagles Release Jaiquawn Jarrett, Sign Mardy Gilyard

Today, the Philadelphia Eagles made a roster move. Jaiquawn Jarrett, who was a second-round draft pick by the Eagles in last years draft, was released. Many thought that Jarrett was a huge draft bust. Jarrett did play against the Cleveland Browns this past week. He did not record any tackles and also missed tackling Josh Cribbs on a return. The 6-foot Temple University product...

Eagles were "saved by their defense"... ...

I wanted to post GK Brizer's position-group grade on the Eagles win in Cleveland before I have to run on down to M&T Bank Stadium for the disturbingly early kickoff (7:00 P.M. EST) of  Monday night's Bengals-Ravens game.I'll be back to add to this artcle after the Ravens game is finished. Hopefully many Eagles fans will be tuned into the Ravens game as a scouting...

Eagles Week 1: The Good vs. The Bad

The Good The Eagles are 1-0. No one got hurt. LeSean McCoy proved once again that he’s an elite running back. The defense allowed just 16 points, but they were playing the Cleveland Browns, with a rookie quarterback who threw for 188 yards. Philadelphia should have held the Browns to a low output offensively. Even though it is somewhat good, it is more so expected. The Bad This...

Ravens' next challenge---stop Eagles' McCoy....

The Ravens travel to Philly on Sunday, September 16, 2012, to face the Eagles... and one of their main concerns is to shore up their run defense after being gashed by Benjarvus Green-Ellis in their win over Cincy on Monday night...This is easier said than done. No amount of improved gap-protection scheme or refined technique can take way from what LeSean McCoy can bring to a running...

Andy Reid’s Poor Game Management Strikes Again (read his explanation inside)

  OT Jason Peters is the most valuable guy on the Eagles team. Without him, things are a lot scarier for Vick and the entire fan base. Unfortunately, he ruptured his achilles making it unlikely he returns until next season. Jason, COME BACK BOO. WE NEED YOU. By the 3rd quarter of the Philadelphia Eagles/Cleveland Browns game I was screaming JEFF LURIE DO YOU SEE THIS? LOOK AT YOUR...

Eagles odds and ends – Maclin injured, Gilyard back, Ravens up next

Andy Reid announced after a skin-of-your teeth win against Cleveland in week 1 that wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has a hip pointer. Maclin caught 7 passes Sunday for 96 yards and was the Eagles best receiver. The fact that he was even able to play the whole game was a small victory. Maclin got roughed up on two plays, and was shaken up both times. He sat out a down after the first...
