Thank you to everyone who sent us questions this week via e-mail. We appreciate the involvement as we wind down towards the end of the NFL season.
They’re going to cut Alex Henery, right? – Dale from Sellersville
I wouldn’t say they’ll cut him, but I fully expect them to bring in some competition. Henery’s stats aren’t all that bad, it’s just his misses stand out a bit more drastically than they should. On kickoffs, it wouldn’t hurt for the Eagles to have a kicker with a big leg who can kick it out of the end zone. Henery hasn’t really done that, so the Eagles will at the very least evaluate their options in that sense.
Our own Tyler Bolton-Fuhrman wrote a comprehensive article today on Henery’s effectiveness. You can check it out here.
Do you think the Eagles will spend a lot of money in free agency, considering they have a decent amount of cap room? – Jim from Richboro
I’m not sure how much money they’ll spend, but I do know that Chip and Howie are looking to add players with speci
BEST OF MAXIM
The Philadelphia Eagles enter the 2014 offseason with ten players heading to free agency. Some of them are players the Eagles will clearly re-sign, like defensive end Cedric Thornton and punter Donnie Jones. Others are obvious departures, like quarterback Michael Vick (who wants a shot at a starting job elsewhere) and pass rusher Phillip Hunt. But there are several players who are...

Bradley Fletcher started out shakily but turned in a solid campaign in his first year with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Over the course of the next two weeks we will examine each of the Philadelphia Eagles 2013 free-agent signings and off-season additions and look at how they contributed to this year's NFC East championship team both on and off the field.

In the end, Mike Vick came up just a bit short of a Hollywood story ending in Philadelphia.
This past week, Vick strolled into the NovaCare Complex about 11 a.m. Monday, ventured over to his locker and began sifting...
The Philadelphia Eagles should have two players at the top of their free agent shopping list come March: safeties Jairus Byrd and/or T.J. Ward. If one (or both) of these guys are available, it’s truly a no-brainer that the Eagles should be bidding for their services.
I’ll call them priority 1 and priority 1a.

Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin lost his entire 2013 season with a torn ACL. To add insult to injury 2013 was a contract year for Maclin, who understands that a torn ACL above all else puts the value of his next contract in questions.
“I understand it could be a possibility that [the ACL tear] may scare some teams off, or a team may want to do a one...
Leo Pizzini is a Hall-of-Fame poster who has taken a sabbatical from the EYE's daily rumblings over the past year... But it was Leo who coined the term "5-Year Trend" for the windows of opportunity that emerge for any team's shot at competitive growth in the NFL. According to Leo, who was a defensive specialist (safety) in his collegiate and semi-pro playing days...
Philadelphia Eagles free-agent-to-be wide receiver Jeremy Maclin understands that wherever he may land this offseason, he likely will not get the long-term big money type of deal he was hoping to get. Maclin tore his right ACL during training camp at the end of July and missed the entire 2013 season.Maclin realizes that coming off a season-ending injury, some suitors may be hesitant...
I’ll admit, the offseason is off to a slow start. Last night, I was actually thinking of putting up a post about Mychal Kendricks Instagramming a picture of Lola Bunny for “Women Crush Wednesday” (the picture has since been deleted). It’s gotten that bad*. So in lieu of such disappointment, today I’m giving you my Top Five dates of the 2014 offseason for the Eagles.
The purpose behind Quick Hits is to catch you up on the most important news, notes, and links that you may have missed from the day prior. Without further ado, here are Tuesday’s quick hits:
1. Jeremy Maclin spoke for the first time since his injury and said if the only contract he received this offseason was a one-year deal, then ‘that’s cool’.
2. For the Eagles, who stays...
Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor has been hired as offensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins, FOX Sports 1 Insider Mike Garafolo and other media report.
Lazor joined the Eagles a year ago when Chip Kelly was hired as head coach. Lazor was instrumental in the development of second-year quarterback Nick Foles, who led the NFL in passing this season.
