As Philadelphia Eagles training camp continues, the contenders and pretenders for roster spots are starting to separate themselves a little bit. Nothing is settled yet, of course, but there are a few new players who have a legitimate chance of making this team.
By new players, I’m not referring to any of the Eagles’ draft picks because for the most part, they are all virtual locks for the roster (except for maybe the late-round guys). Instead, I’m talking about undrafted free agent rookies as well as first year guys and veteran additions this offseason.
In other words, any non-draft pick that is new to the team this year.
There is some excellent competition happening up at Lehigh right now. Once the preseason games start, players will have an even better chance at separating themselves from the pack and earning a spot on the 53-man roster.
There really aren’t that many positions open, but here are the guys that have a better shot than most…

The longest tenured coach in the NFL right now is Andy Reid. He has been the coach in Philadelphia since 1999. Since he has taken over the Eagles, they have won 6 division titles. Been to the NFC Championship game 5 times(which he is 1-4), and has made it to the Super Bowl just 1 time (which he lost to New England 24-21). Since 1999 the rival Giants have made it to the Super Bowl...

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has some advice for Pittsburgh Steelers restricted wide receiver Mike Wallace, who has yet to report and sign his $2.742 tender offer, "Holding out just doesn’t end up being worth it."
Jackson should know as his 12-day holdout really went nowhere and he suggests others such as Wallace and Jacksonville Jaguars running...

9. Michael Vick will finish in the top 5 ranked Quarterbacks.
After a disappointing campaign last season, both team-wise and individually, Vick will bounce back stronger than ever. He finished outside the top 10 QB ranks via Yahoo last season. But with a boosted Eagles confidence, I predict Vick to finish right atop the biggest names in Fantasy with Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom...
