Philadelphia Eagles: Kendricks isn’t going anywhere

Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly silenced any NFL scouts and experts on whether inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks was going to be traded or not by signing the 24-year old to a 4-year extension. The contact is worth $29 million with $16.4 of it being guaranteed. The signing makes Kendricks the Eagles highest-paid linebacker. Kendricks is one of the few remaining Andy Reid...

Jumping the shark on Eagles news coverage…

You know it’s a slow NFL news day when you see stories like this one:  “Pro Football Focus’ (PFF) analysts ranked Kelly’s Birds as the sixth best roster in the NFL, one spot worse than their 2014 ranking.” Now apparently this concocted angle bases roster strength on how many “elite”-ranked players you have on your roster. PFF considers Jason Peters, Evan Mathis...

Should the Packers Re-Sign ILB Jamari Lattimore?

The Green Bay Packers recently cut ties with veteran linebackers A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones. These transactions continued a trend of change sweeping over the team since their devastating loss in the NFC Championship Game. These changes did not come as much of a surprise, but they are an acknowledgment from a front office that realizes they are a few small tweaks away from a Super Bowl...

Green Bay Packers Free Agency ILB Options

Last week, I focused on how the draft inside linebackers struggled at the NFL Combine. Since, A.J. Hawk was finally released, which leaves the Packers extremely thin at the position with Sam Barrington being the only one who you could see starting. That assumes of course Clay Matthews moves back to the edge. After releasing Hawk and Brad Jones, the Packers have over $30 million in...

Cory’s Corner: Jones and Hawk were necessary subtractions

Inside linebacker was the bleakest Packers’ position group. Now it’s the thinnest. After the Packers cut Brad Jones and A.J. Hawk, the team now only has Sam Barrington at the position. In two seasons as a pro, Barrington has started only seven games. But even with the cloud of uncertainty hanging over 1265 Lombardi Ave., these were moves the Packers had to make. Jones was a guy...

Brad Jones 2014 Report Card – Packers Player Grades

1) Introduction: After starting 12 games in 2013, the Packers had reason to believe that Brad Jones would build upon his gradual success that saw him record a career-high 60 tackles. However, things were vastly different this year. Jones doesn’t have the lateral quickness to stay on the field, which is why he only played 17.4 percent of the defensive snaps. 2) Profile: Brad Jones...
