With the NFL franchise tag deadline today at 4 p.m. EST, the Philadelphia Eagles don’t appear likely to use it on WR Jeremy Maclin.

Not Jeremy Maclin, not Randall Cobb. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 2, 2015 Maclin would be due just a tick under $13M if franchised, but that obviously...

Eagles 2015 Draft Prospect: UCLA Quarterback Brett Hundley

We all know that Eagles fans covet one quarterback in this draft. However, that quarterback may not be attainable. There are plenty of rumors that the Eagles are wiling to do whatever it takes to get Marcus Mariota. We won’t know if that’s true until April 30th. Regardless, they need to have a backup plan if they cannot obtain Mariota. One potential option they may explore is...

Jeremy Maclin Hopeful on Eagles: “If it’s Supposed to Happen, It’ll happen”

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin wants to remain in the only city he’s called home during a six-year career, and the team appears to want him to stay.

If a deal is not struck, and the Eagles want to retain him next...

NFC East: Does Darrelle Revis Make Sense?

Too often in free agency the prize of doing business at retail price instead of wholesale ends up not working out for the team. There aren’t very many free agents in the league who are worth the price tags they will ultimately demand on the open market. Usually, the players who are type of those impacts are resigned by the team’s that draft them. However, there are sometimes...

Grateful not to be the Philadelphia Browns…or the Cleveland Eagles…

The Browns just signed veteran QB Josh McCown for 3 years, $14 million, $6 million guaranteed. He’s 35 years old and was 1-10 as a starter for Tampa Bay last season. It seems that Philadelphia front office personnel who left the Eagles a few years ago to join the Cleveland Browns have only made matters worse there. To be fair to the individuals involved, like Joe Banner and Tom...

Maclin still holding out hope Eagles will re-sign him

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin said that he's in no rush to get a deal done and after gambling on himself in 2014 coming off a torn ACL and taking just a one-year deal with the team, it doesn't make sense now to panic. Maclin made it clear that he would like to remain with the Eagles and his wait and see attitude towards his impending free agency means he's going...

Philadelphia Eagles: Draft Profile on Landon Collins

Cary Williams, Nate Allen, and Brandon Fletcher were unimpressive last season. Their poor and inconsistent play resulted in the team ranking 31st in the league in pass defense. The future for either of those players are uncertain at the moment, but it would be safe to say that the Philadelphia Eagles will look to improve the secondary either though the draft or free agency. The...

Could the Eagles release LeSean McCoy?

Philadelphia Eagles release Herremans as needs grow

The recent releasing of Todd Herremans raises questions about a section of the Philadelphia Eagles that remained largely untouched up until this point—the offensive line.
