Philly Sports World:
Cal Linebacker Mychal Kendricks was one of 4 Eagles draft picks that have already signed with the team.
One benefit of the NFL’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement is that draftees are signing contracts much faster than in the past because of the rookie wage scale. As a result, the Philadelphia Eagles have already agreed to terms with a number of their picks already, just ahead of their rookie mini-camp set to begin on Saturday.
Mychal Kendricks, the linebacker that the Eagles selected in the 2nd round of the draft has signed with the Eagles. Also signing are Defensive End Vinny Curry (2nd round), Defensive Tackle Dennis Kelly (5th round) and Wide Receiver Marvin McNutt (6th round).
All deals were 4-year deals.
That leaves the Eagles with Defensive Tackle Fletcher Cox (1st round), Quarterback Nick Foles (3rd), Cornerback Brandon Boykin (4th), Offensive Guard Brandon Washington (6th) and Running Back Bryce Brown (7th) still unsigned.
All rookies, signed or not are expected to attend the rookie mini-camp. Negotiations are expected to be on-going with the remaining players, and all are expected to sign.
Players all across the NFL are signing quicker, avoiding situations like the Eagles had last year with 1st round pick Danny Watkins.
Many believe this to be one of the most promising draft classes the Eagles have had in years.

In the 4th round of the 2012 draft, with the 123rd overall selection the Philadelphia Eagles picked Brandon Boykin, a 5-9, 182 corner from Georgia.
Boykin is a tremendously versatile athlete and the Eagles were widely hailed for the selection, including the fact that the pickup was a tremendous value. NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks calls Boykin a “multidimensional weapon,” an intriguing...
The Philadelphia Eagles had two members of its team appear in the NFL Network’s countdown of the top 100 players of 2012 this week. That’s good, right?
The not-so-good part is that the players were ranked far lower this year than last. But given the Eagles 8-8 season in 2011, that is hardly a surprise.
CB Nnamdi Asomugha, the free agent prize of the 2011 offseason, saw his standing...

Many observers felt the Eagles' two biggest needs going into the draft were outside linebacker and safety. They addressed the first one early on in the draft, selecting speedy Mychael Kendricks of Cal, a three-down linebacker who will move to the head of the depth-chart line at SAM. But they didn't take a safety with any of their nine picks. They did sign one after the...

So, I watched T.O.’s appearance on Dr. Phil on Tuesday. And it was just sad.
It was sad seeing a man with little maturity and no sense of responsibility in the midst of ruining the lives four innocent children.
Four children by four different women. You have to ask questions about the decision-making abilities of all involved, especially baby mamas 3 and 4, but in the end, it’s...
The Eagles locked up four draft picks, including second-round defensive end Vinny Curry and linebacker Mychal Kendricks, with four-year deals. Fifth-rounder Dennis Kelly, a defensive tackle, and sixth-rounder Marvin McNutt, a wide receiver from Iowa, also signed. The Eagles have high hopes for their two second-round picks.

In early July 2011, Vince Young was waived by the Tennessee Titans and promptly picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles, who agreed to a one-year contract with Young. Young played in only 6 games that season for Philadelphia, getting off to a very rough 1-2 start.
At present, Young is without a team, which seems a little preposterous at this point in his career.
He has, however, worked...
