He knew what was coming, so he politely declined interviews at first. But around 20 minutes later, Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Brandon Graham was cornered again by a relentless media horde and succumbed, smiling. Always smiling. Standing just outside the NovaCare Complex after Thursday's practice during this week's organized team activities, Graham stared down the barrel of intense cross-examination about his fit in the team's 3-4 defense and his future with the organization. The team's first-round draft pick in 2010 could have blamed his tenuous position on just plain bad luck and awful circumstances, and he might have been accurate, but he didn't. He also chose not to bring up the season-ending ACL injury as a rookie that essentially ruined his second season as well. Nor did he mention having to learn a new position after the team switched to a 3-4 base defense last year under a new coaching staff, which came in after he finally proved in six starts at th...

Mark Sanchez says he's entering 'prime of his career' with Eagles

Mark Sanchez has gone from Rex Ryan, who barely knew a quarterback from a defensive back, to Chip Kelly, master of offensive matriculation.

Barkley, Sanchez have some adjusting to do with the Eagles

Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley have a lot in common; chief among their similarities is a love-hate relationship with being an NFL backup quarterback.

Kelly happy to have Maclin at full go

All Jeremy Maclin could do was watch, wait and work. But he couldn’t play. For an ultra-competitive player such as Maclin, it was quite difficult.

Fast forward nearly a year and the...

If you asked Sanchez why that is, he’d tell you it’s because he’s” just...
