Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks: Trade rumors fell on deaf ears

Just before the 2015 NFL Draft, Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks was the subject of trade rumors, but he says it didn't really bother him at all. The speedy Kendricks, 24 (264 tackles in his three years with the team), is coming off his best season. "It didn't bother me at all," he said, per the team's official website. "Whatever happens, happens. I've got no...

Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews Developing Instant Chemistry

  View image | gettyimages.com   Patrick Causey, on Twitter @PhillySportsJD I am the self-appointed President of the Nelson Agholor Fan Club. I lobbied for the Eagles to draft Agholor shamelessly leading up to the draft. And was probably a little too excited after he fell to the Eagles in the first round.  My undying appreciation for the USC product only grew stronger when...

WATCH: Philadelphia Eagles Rookie WR Nelson Agholor Returning Punts During OTAs

After the Philadelphia Eagles let Jeremy Macklin walk in free agency this off-season they needed to add another weapon to the arsenal for Sam Bradford (or Mark Sanchez or Matt Barkley or Tim Tebow). They did by drafting USC wide receiver Nelson Agholor in the first round. However, with the question marks surrounding the health of Bradford the team may be looking to make sure the...

Bradford starts taking first team reps with offense at Eagles OTAs

According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford jumped his first major hurdle taking reps with the offense during team drills at the team's OTAs Tuesday. Bradford split first-team reps with Mark Sanchez, which marks a huge step for Bradford in his recovery from his latest ACL tear. So Sam Bradford has graduated to competitive drills...

Two potential Evan Mathis replacements for the Philadelphia Eagles

I’ll just get this out of the way off the bat. There is no replacing a guy like Evan Mathis. He is arguably the best left guard in the National Football League and integral to the Philadelphia Eagles’ zone running attack. There is no single player they can bring in to replace him that will represent an upgrade at the position. That all being said, right now it sounds like Mathis...

QB Sam Bradford rates as a better decision maker and ‘vast improvement' over Foles, Sanchez

When Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly traded Nick Foles to the Rams for the often injured Sam Bradford this offseason, it seemed like a head scratcher. According to ESPN Insider KC Joyner via CBS Local, the move bringing Bradford to Philadelphia was a 'vast improvement' over Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez. Bradford by the statistics is a better decision maker than Foles or...

Parsing Jason Kelce’s comments about Eagles not making the playoffs in 2014— “You can’t handle the truth”…

I tend to take what a center says seriously. Centers are the heart and soul of a football offense. Often, like Matt Birk, they are gifted with near-genius IQ’s. Eagles center Jason Kelce reminds me a lot of a young Matt Birk. Generally when he speaks it bears listening. Kelce didn’t go to Harvard like Birk did, but he probably would have qualified academically. Maybe you’d...

Mark Sanchez backs off dismissal of Tim Tebow

Mark Sanchez is backing off of his quote from late April that made it seem like he was dismissing Tim Tebow and the former Heisman Trophy winner’s chances of being a significant player with the Philadelphia Eagles.

DeMeco Ryans encouraged by his recovery so far

After the Philadelphia Eagles lost DeMeco Ryans in November of last season to a torn right Achilles tendon, the defense collapsed. Many factors go into a defense's downfall as a whole, but Ryans was not only the team's leading tackler at the time but also their defensive captain. He wore the helmet with the headset and he was the "quarterback of the defense". Despite being only six...

Kiko Alonso a full participant during Eagles' OTAs so far

There was some uncertainty surrounding Kiko Alonso's return to the football field after missing the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL. After the Philadelphia Eagles wrapped up their first set of OTAs last Friday, that uncertainty has all but washed away. Alonso was a full participant during every practice, and he even felt comfortable shedding his knee brace."I honestly didn't think...

Jason Kelce: Missing playoffs was good for Eagles

Despite missing four games in 2014, Jason Kelce found a way to make it into the first Pro Bowl of his career. As the lynchpin of the offensive line, Kelce has become a leader among the Philadelphia Eagles and a reliable source for media members to talk to if they want an overall view of the team. So, when Kelce told the Philadelphia Daily News that the Eagles missing the playoffs...

How individual Eagles players are improving….

Fletcher Cox is extremely candid about his need to get better in “the little things” it takes to become a better defensive end in a 3-4 alignment: “I’m still kind of new to this two-gap thing, the 3-4. I’ve been a one-gap player all of my life.” Cox gave a nice interview to Chris McPherson of PE.com  in which he says two things he’s focused on improving are his footwork...

Chip Kelly’s sports science has made the Philadelphia Eagles the healthiest team in the NFL

His methods may be mad, but the results are undeniable. According to a study by Warren Sharp of Sharp Football Analysis, over the last two years Chip Kelly’s Philadelphia Eagles have been the healthiest team in the NFL. The results were based on how many adjusted games were lost due to injury. In 2013, the Eagles had the fewest. Last year they came in fifth, giving them the best...

What the Philadelphia Eagles offense will look like in 2015

  The Philadelphia Eagles lost and gained a lot of different pieces on both sides of the ball this past offseason via free agency as well as the draft, and while it is tough to gauge how different the Birds offense will be in 2015, the key principles will still be implemented. Therefore, the new key players will simply be plug-and-plays for who they are replacing, and will outperform...

Barkley on Tebow: He's not taking my reps on the field

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley isn’t holding back when it comes to speaking out about the competition for the team’s No. 3 quarterback position. Barkley, a fourth-round pick back in 2013, isn’t too keen on the idea that Tim Tebow might have the upper-hand in the quarterback competition: “He’s not taking my reps on the field,” Barkley said following Thursday’s...

Philadelphia Eagles Roster: Strengths, Weaknesses, Question Marks

This has undoubtedly been the craziest and most talked about Eagles offseason that I can remember, and I’m almost sad that it’s pretty much over.  The Draft and Free Agency are both complete and at this rate, it seems like no more trades are imminent, but who knows with Chip.  Now that the team is heading into OTAs, I’ve been able to review the roster, digest Chip’s thought...

Is Sam Bradford not close to full health?

When Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles traded for Sam Bradford they were almost certainly expecting him to be healthy for the entire 2015 season. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear Bradford is even close to being 100 percent healthy. According to numerous reports from the first day of OTAs for the Eagles, Bradford was seen walking with a noticeable limp. He is in the process...
