This was originally slated to be about five free agents, but in all honesty, the Philadelphia Eagles don’t need to sign free agents like that. Not this year. Not after last year.
Free agency is fun to talk about and the rumors provide a lot of entertaining conversation, but it is just not the way to truly build a strong football team. Free agency...
How much interest do the Eagles have in LB Dan Connor?
It’s a refrain you have heard–and likely said–many, many times. In order for the Eagles defensive to have a chance in 2012, the team must make some major improvements at the linebacker position.

The Philadelphia Eagles have used the franchise tag on disgruntled wide receiver DeSean Jackson—but don’t be fooled, he will be out of Philly faster than he can run a 40-yard-dash.
Conventional wisdom shows us when a team tags a player, it means the organization wants them to stick around and usually has intentions of working on a long-term deal...
Over the weekend, the Philadelphia Eagles used their franchise tag on DeSean Jackson
Days after Plaxico Burress publicly stated he wanted to play for the Philadelphia Eagles, the team placed the franchise tag on DeSean Jackson. They issued the following statement:

Remember Michael Vick’s epic 30th birthday party two years ago? Of course you do. That was the one that resulted in a parking lot shootout and one of Vick’s co-defendants in his dog fighting case being shot in the leg after birthday cake was allegedly smashed in someone’s face. According to a report Saturday by the Daily Press, that wasn’t the only fun that went down at the...

A few weeks ago, we discovered that Ron Jaworksi would no longer be part of ESPN’s Monday Football Lineup. Instead, Jon Gruden and Mike Tirico will man the MNF booth as a duo.
While the news initially seemed to be a smack in the face to Jaws, he was given a 5-year contract extension by the sports network. And now we have some idea of what some of his new...
Crazy thought for the day: If Houston defensive end Mario Williams becomes a free agent, would the Philadelphia Eagles go after him?
I’ve been watching the Texans and how they handle the situation with Arian Foster and Mario Williams. My thinking was that there wouldn’t be any chance that either would hit the free agent market, especially Foster.
DeSean Jackson, wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles holds his future and possible the future of this Eagles incarnation in his hands this season if he winds up signing and playing out his franchise tender.
So the Philadelphia Eagles have finally made the move that everyone expected, and franchise tagged DeSean Jackson. So the big question is what will the Eagles do with him...

Antonio Cromartie and Travis Henry better watch out. Michael Turner’s coming at them with a vengeance. Roger Goodell and Peter King can check their fake indignation. No bounties are involved unless one counts child support.
Police were called to Turner’s house after his current girlfriend attacked his baby mama with a move that would have made Elin Woods proud.
