The state of the Philadelphia Eagles defense heading into 2014 season

A lot of the focus heading into the Philadelphia Eagles’ season opener against Jacksonville is going to be on how Nick Foles follows up his Pro Bowl season, how the offensive line fares without Lane Johnson, and how the young receiving corps performs. But the Eagles defense is at an interesting point after the 53-man cuts and will provide plenty of intriguing storylines throughout...

Who will make the cut on the Eagles defensive line?

Heading into the 2014 season, the Eagles sport one of the youngest and most athletic defensive lines in the NFL. However, the Eagles struggled to get pressure on the quarterback last year (tied for 20th in sacks with a mere 37). Because of this, one large point of emphasis will be increasing the number of “impact plays” as the players move into year two under defensive coordinator...

Comparing Chip Kelly to Gary Kubiak—what could possibly go wrong?

The most significant news to me coming out of Eagles OTA’s is that DT Bennie Logan has bulked up to 317 pounds (all muscle mass!) and the future of the defensive front looks a whole lot brighter. But today I wanted to take a look at the offensive system Chip Kelly has installed, and try to compare it to what Gary Kubiak had success with at Houston before the wheels came off the...

Eagles' Logan gets a little bigger

The 10 pounds Bennie Logan added this offseason beefed the Eagles' starting nose tackle to around 317-319 pounds, depending on the day. Even though that is a little shy of the prototypical nose tackle's weight, the team is confident in Logan, a second-year lineman, and has pledged its support for him. "Most people, when they picture a nose tackle, they picture a 330...

VIDEO: Beau Allen’s highlight tape, the Philadelphia Eagles’ newest NT

With the seventh and final pick (No. 224) in the 2014 NFL draft, the Philadelphia Eagles selected Wisconsin NT Beau Allen.

Exclusive Interview: Kadron Boone, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles made a move to sign undrafted free agent wide receiver Kadron Boone out of LSU immediately following the 2014 NFL Draft. Boone was considered to be a potential late-round draft pick, but ended up slipping out of the draft.

Philadelphia Eagles Draft Prospects: Rounds 3-4

In the last two drafts, the Philadelphia Eagles have done a very good job at picking players in the middle rounds. The drafts of 2012 and 2013 have yielded the likes of Nick Foles, Brandon Boykin and Bennie Logan. While none of those guys have yet to play a third year, all indications suggest that the team has hit on all three of those picks. Yesterday, we previewed some prospects...

Injured last season, ’13 draft pick could improve Philadelphia Eagles’ pass rush

Broken down, the core of the Eagles defensive line is young and promising. With Cedric Thornton and Fletcher Cox on both ends, and a now heavier Bennie Logan in the middle, the front line of the team’s new 3-4 defense is starting to take shape. None of those players are older than 25. After that, there are question marks. Part of this has to do with the scheme. Guys like Vinny...

Do the Eagles really need to look elsewhere for a nose tackle?

As free agency approaches, talk around the Philadelphia Eagles is starting to focus on positions of need. On the defensive side, it seems that nearly every position has been mentioned as a position of need. While help with the secondary and pass rush are obvious keys, nose tackle has been cited as a position as well. The Eagles entered 2013 needing a nose tackle for the first time...
