I talked about this a bit last week, so I’ll just rehash what I previously discussed. Since it seems Michael Vick’s days in Philadelphia are over, the Eagles are (probably) now in the market for a third quarterback. With how the franchise has asserted itself the past few seasons — both with roster moves and coaching changes — it appears that the Eagles are headed in a more youthful direction. Because of this, it’s hard to think they’d address their need for an extra arm in any way other than through the draft. The Eagles will select the best player available, but they also could wait a few rounds to really grab the quarterback that interests them. I previewed a few last week, and my feelings haven’t changed regarding that being the route the franchise will take. If they decide otherwise though, there won’t be much to choose from in free agency. Here are cover 32′s top 10 free agent quarterbacks heading as of right now: 1. Josh Freeman 2. Michael Vick 3. Matt Cassel 4. Josh McCown...

NFL executive: Michael Vick will be a starter in 2014

An NFL executive told Judy Batista of NFL.com that he believes Michael Vick will land a starting job even though he was benched this past season with the Eagles. “There are too many teams that are in need of an upgrade for him not to be looked at as a starter,” the personnel executive said. “I could see a team signing him, and developing a young guy. Vick could be a very good...

Eagles need duo behind McCoy to step up in 2014

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had a fantastic year in 2013. He’s in the prime of his career, and it’s hard to argue that he isn’t the best running back in the game. But what about the two guys behind him on the roster? Chris Polk and Bryce Brown are obviously working with limited carries behind McCoy. But in today’s NFL, injuries can happen at the drop of...

Nick Foles Continued Evolution Crucial

The Eagles will now go as far as Nick Foles will take them. His continued development will be the top storyline to watch this offseason. (Image via Philly.com) Nick Foles' wildly successful 2013 regular season was strong enough to cement him as the Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback this season and moving forward, but that by no means is validation that he has become a...

Reading the Tea Leaves on Possible Jeremy Maclin Contract Negotiations

It seems to me that the Philadelphia Eagles and Jeremy Maclin are in contract negotiations.  While there has been no official confirmation that the two sides are actually talking yet, there have been signs that appear to point in that direction. It mainly started with an innocuous “report” (tweet) from a former Philadelphia sports radio host on 97.5 The Fanatic… Believe it...

Could the Eagles target a running back in the draft?

Don’t be shocked if the Eagles draft a running back with their first-round pick. Sorry, I had to. Yeah, that’s not happening. I understand that the Eagles value roster competition and the idea of drafting the best available player, but they wouldn’t take a running back right off the bat. Later in the draft? Well, that’s a different story. Behind LeSean McCoy, the Eagles’...
