Safety Oshiomogho (O.J.) Atogwe signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles and knows that he will need to hit the ground running in order to get up to speed on learning the team’s defense without the benefit of OTAs and minicamp, all of which have passed. But it’s a challenge he’s ready to face.
“I’ve been fortunate in my career to be able to pick up defenses quickly...
Running back LeSean McCoy was the last member of the Philadelphia Eagles to be featured on the NFL Network’s countdown of the league’s top 100 players of 2012. Shady came in at number 18.
Though McCoy wasn’t as displeased about his rating as quarterback Mike Vick, the opinions of his peers are still important to him. And he plans to prove them wrong in next year’s countdown...
A beautiful early summer day in the Delaware Valley today... and Matt Bowen comes to the rescue again.

By Len PasquarelliThe Sports Xchange Seven-year veteran safety O.J. Atogwe, added this week by Philadelphia, balked at suggestions his best football is behind him. Still, Atogwe, 31, hasn't been as productive in recent seasons, and there is a reason (or at least a perception) why the Eagles will represent his third team in three seasons. That said, Philly coaches still feel...
