Found May 30, 2012 on Eagles Eye:
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 cuts have begun, as you probably already know. Graig Cooper (RB) and Aaron Pflugrad (WR) were released. We're down to 87 right now.In catching up from Memorial Day hiatus, I plucked a nugget from one of Dave Spadaro's OTI pieces from the weekend. Since the comment count on OTI was way down at The Wall over the holiday, I think it's only fair to give Dave his due. This interview he got with Eagles DL coach Jim Washburn is very informative for me: "I never heard of the Wide 9 in my life," said Washburn. "I hear of the 'over' defense with a '9' technique. We play a ...

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...

Juan Castillo on the Philadelphia Eagles defense: “I don’t think there’s ever been an excuse”

The naming of Juan Castillo as the defensive coordinator of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011 is a shock that many are still trying to overcome. The team’s former offensive line coach was suddenly the architect of the team’s defense, with little experience on the defensive side of the ball and no offseason to prepare. But head coach Andy Reid stood by his selection, even though...

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...

Philadelphia Eagles Defensive End Jason Babin Wants To Run With the Bulls; Is He Crazy?

 Despite the tribal tattoos and physical comparisons to a Jersey shore beach-goer, Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jason Babin is actually a brilliant guy, however his newest idea may have many thinking otherwise.The 2011 Pro Bowler is the same guy that just spent 12 days in Cold Bay, Alaska hunting bear to come home without the bear he wanted.A delayed flight from Alaska to Philadelphia...

Mike Ehrmann / Getty Images It’s no secret that plenty of Philadelphia Eagles will be targeted during your fantasy football draft. And while the NFL regular season is more than two months away, it’s your job as a fantasy football general manager to be perpetually scouting. Since a decent amount of planning is attached to each fantasy selection, let me break down why you should...

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...

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...

R.I.P. Jason Babin

Eagles defensive end Jason Babin said he plans to travel to Spain prior to the start of training camp in July to participate in the Running of the Bulls. Notes flubby: “I hate how they calling it running with the bulls like they’re training for a half marathon with their neighbor, who just happens to be an Iberian bovine. It ought to be called running from the bulls.” RIFF...
