Found May 31, 2012 on Fox Sports:
The Eagles led the NFL with 50 sacks last year. Then they spent the offseason trying to make their defensive line even better. Take last year's NFL-best group and add rookie Fletcher Cox, a first-round tackle from Mississippi State, second-round pick Vinny Curry, a tackle from Marshall, and then add yet another tackle, Antonio Dixon, who missed all of last year with an injury, and you may have Philadelphia's deepest and most talented line since the days of Reggie White and Clyde Simmons. ''You can't have too many good players,'' line coach Jim Washburn said. ''If somebody said, `Hey, we want to add another good one,' I'd say, `Bring him on.' You just never know what's going to happen in this league. ''It's a good situation to have, I tell you that, because I've been on the other side of that situation before.'' The Eagles finished a disappointing 8-8 last season, and failed to make the playoffs. A four-game winning streak to close could not erase a porous 4-8 start, as they watched the division rival New York Giants win the Super Bowl.

How long will QB Trent Edwards remain on the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster?

Trent Edwards The Philadelphia Eagles signed former Buffalo Bills quarterback Trent Edwards this offseason, despite the fact that he did not play in the NFL at all in 2011. So it’s not surprising that there was a little bit of rust for Edwards last week at the Eagles first set of OTAs this offseason. But it seemed that there was more than just a little. Edwards’ performance was...

Jason Babin’s wild, whacky offseason adventures: Next up, running with the bulls

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jason Babin was a no-show to the team’s OTAs last week. He had planned to be with his teammates, but things don’t always go according to plan when you are in the midst of a grand adventure. Babin was in Alaska on a trip to hunt black bears. What was already sure to be a memorable experience became even more so when Babin got trapped in a storm...

Stop calling it the Eagles "Wide 9"...

Yes, there was a morning OTA practice on Wednesday, but it was pretty much closed to media, so we didn't get our Twitter relays from Kenny and Boner. Livefyre "radio" lines were acting a little goofy, too, and Twitter is basically on the same network servers, so who knows, maybe Geoff Mosher and Les Bowen were trying to get through to us but couldn't...?Personnel...

Eagles clear Mudd to miss OTAs, will return for minicamp

Eagles coach Andy Reid has continually harped on the benefit for his young team of having a full offseason of field and classroom work this spring compared to last year when a 4 1/2-month lockout prevented rookies from even getting a peek at their playbook until the start of training camp. Yet, one of their most important teachers -- offensive line coach Howard Mudd -- was nowhere...

R.I.P. Jason Babin

Eagles defensive end Jason Babin said he plans to travel to Spain prior to the start of training camp in July to participate in the Running of the Bulls. Notes flubby: “I hate how they calling it running with the bulls like they’re training for a half marathon with their neighbor, who just happens to be an Iberian bovine. It ought to be called running from the bulls.” RIFF...

As an Eagle, Vinny Curry still pays his respect to Marshall

Vinny Curry was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft and chose to wear number 75. At first Curry selected No. 75 because of the legends that have worn the number such as Deacon Jones and "Mean" Joe Green, but when he arrived back at home near his college university, Marshall, he realized the number carried a significant meaning...
