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 and couldn’t make it back to Philadelphia. He also had no way to let anyone know what was going on. “When the weather blows in, you don’t have a lot of options. There were times when the tents bended so hard, it was hitting us in our sleeping bag. There was snow drifting over.” Babin survived by eating freeze dried meals and getting drinking water from glacier. On top of it all, he wasn’t able to kill a bear. His wife is making sure that he plans ahead next time. “Put it like this: My wife said, ‘If you ever want to go on a trip like that again, you’ll be buying a satellite phone.” You go, girl.

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.

Time out from OTAs: Philadelphia Eagles build a playground

Encouraged Eagles add depth to defensive line

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...

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...
