Chiefs claim Damion Square, sign nine to practice squad

When you see a player move from the Eagles to the Chiefs, the impulse is to say that Chiefs coach Andy Reid made the move because of some knowledge he gleaned while he was still in Philadelphia. That’s not the case with defensive lineman Damion Square, however. Square didn’t join the Eagles until Reid was already in Kansas City, so the Chiefs’ decision to claim him off of...

Philadelphia Eagles defensive line must grow up fast in 2014

What do you get when you pair an elite NFL offense with a mediocre defense? For the Eagles in 2013 it meant an early playoff exit, and history suggests that you can expect as much. Putting up tons of points will gain the attention of ESPN and garner alot of oohs and ahs from fans around the league – but at the end of the day to win in the postseason defense is still a prerequisite...

Expect the unexpected as Eagles move forward in 2014…

You think you’ve seen it all in the NFL over the years, and then (as it began in the featured photo above) the Eagles somehow pull off a “hidden Riley Cooper” trick lateral play on a kickoff which darn near worked except the cross-field lateral was ruled a forward pass. That’s a play I never expected to see. But the Eagles had practiced that play for weeks before they put...

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. A true nose tackle, Allen will compete with Damion Square for playing time behind Bennie Logan. He’s a big run stuffer, who could provide some fresh legs at various points of the game. Allen will also be a big part of the Bill Davis’ goalline package. Here...

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...

Who'll fill in with Sopoaga gone?

One day after the trade of starting nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga, Eagles coach Chip Kelly mentioned Bennie Logan, Clifton Geathers, and Damion Square as players who will fill the void. Although Sopoaga started in the base defense, he played only 39 percent of the snaps. Logan, a third-round pick, has taken 28 percent of the defensive snaps this season.
