Found August 30, 2013 on Eagles Faithful:
By 6 PM Saturday, the Philadelphia Eagles will have reached their league mandated 53 man roster. This is not to say that the roster will be finalized. The Eagles are a team the boasts depth along the offensive and defensive lines, but lacks depth in the secondary. Therefore, expect the Birds to continue to make roster moves as the players being released from other teams look for new homes. Here is my shot at predicting the initial 53 man roster for our beloved Philadelphia Eagles. Quarterback (3): Michael Vick, Nick Foles, Matt Barkley. Out: Dennis Dixon, G.J.

Running Back (3): LeSean McCoy, Bryce Brown, Chris Polk. Out: Matthew Tucker, Emil Igwenagu The Eagles, in my opinion, have the best triad of running backs in the league. Tucker and Igwenagu (fullback) will not make this team. Wide Receivers (6...

Eagles release OT Michael Bamiro

Today, the Philadelphia Eagles released Stony Brook OT Michael Bamiro. Bamiro had a strange path to the draft as he didn’t know he was eligible to enter the draft because he was waiting on a 5th year. Bamiro could land on the Eagles PS. There is a very good chance he makes the ps if […]

Eagles Security Guards Stretch, Take Field to Practice Tackling Streakers and Other On-Field Intruders (Video)

While it would make sense to mock an NFL team for doing this, it is Philadelphia, so maybe this is just good form.

While the living proof is just a far-off video of some people hustling around...

Eagles make difficult cuts as roster takes shape

So much for Dennis Dixon having a leg up because he knows Chip Kelly's offense. Dixon was one of 12 players cut by the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday as they moved closer to the 53-player roster limit. He had a standout career at Oregon when Kelly was the Ducks' offensive coordinator there, and signed with the Eagles in February, not long after Kelly took the job. But Dixon...

With the regular season only a week away, the Eagles find themselves in their final preseason game of 2013 as they travel to MetLife Stadium to take on the New York Jets.
