EAGLES RUMORS & GOSSIP

RB coach Duce Staley says DeMarco Murray is a 'perfect fit' for Eagles offense

Philadelphia Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley believes new rusher DeMarco Murry is a 'perfect fit' for the high octane offense the team runs.

Byron Maxwell Bolsters Eagles Pass D, But Questions Loom Vs. Run

Spry, run-smashing Brandon Graham (23 run stops, 39 quarterback hurries) demonstrates the backfield intrusion that easily upgrades over aging headhunter Trent Cole. Kiko Alonso, assuming he's able to get back to his whirling dervish 2013 form, brings pivoting aggression that allows him to both blanket tight...

Cody Parkey, No Longer The Lonesome Kicker
