Philadelphia Eagles DE Jason Babin has a man card, and he’s not afraid to use it.  Sack-meister by day, bear hunter and bull-dodger by night. Jason Babin is the most extraordinary man in the world.  And, he doesn’t always drink beer, but when he does, he prefers Dos Equis. I’m sure you’ve heard by now, but if you haven’t, the latest on Babin is that he just returned from a bear-hunting expedition in Alaska and is now planning on running with the bulls in Pamplona. Awesome photoshop courtesy of the700level.com Maybe I’m crazy, but, hasn’t there been people who have been killed and/or seriously injured doing this?  I mean, running with hundreds of people while having six bulls come up from behind certainly seems a tad risky, right? At the top of the list would be the risk of being gored, followed by being trampled.  However, there is also the inherent risk of a “normal” injury, like a broken bone or tearing a ligament. If Jason Peters can rupture his Achilles from just working out, th...

Jason Babin’s wild, whacky offseason adventures: Next up, running with the bulls

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...

How long will QB Trent Edwards remain on the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster?

Trent Edwards The Philadelphia Eagles signed former Buffalo Bills quarterback Trent Edwards this offseason, despite the fact that he did not play in the NFL at all in 2011. So it’s not surprising that there was a little bit of rust for Edwards last week at the Eagles first set of OTAs this offseason. But it seemed that there was more than just a little. Edwards’ performance was...

Time out from OTAs: Philadelphia Eagles build a playground

After participating in the first day of the second set of OTAs of the 2012 offseason, members of the Philadelphia Eagles were off to have a little fun on Wednesday afternoon. They took part, along with every other member of the organization, in the 16th annual playground build of the Eagles Youth Partnership. This year’s build took place at Comegys Elementary School in Southwest...

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...

Eagles clear Mudd to miss OTAs, will return for minicamp

Eagles coach Andy Reid has continually harped on the benefit for his young team of having a full offseason of field and classroom work this spring compared to last year when a 4 1/2-month lockout prevented rookies from even getting a peek at their playbook until the start of training camp. Yet, one of their most important teachers -- offensive line coach Howard Mudd -- was nowhere...
