King Dunlap to be Eagles’ left tackle?

When the Eagles lost left tackle Jason Peters, presumably for the season, with a torn Achilles in March, they immediately went out and signed Demetress Bell, formerly Demetrius Bell of the Buffalo Bills. They took a risk by signing Bell to a 5 year, 34.5 million dollar deal, but only 3.25 million of that, his 2012 salary, was guaranteed and they got that money by taking it from Jason...

Demetrius Bell & Roscoe Parrish Depart Buffalo

After a 2011 season that was littered with the broken bodies of injured Buffalo Bills, leading to a second half of losses, you had to think they'd cut ties with the more frequent I.R. names. Today, two of the more fragile Bills free agents found new homes and though they were more than valuable while playing in Buffalo, their lack of dependability just couldn't justify re...

Next Man Up for Eagles...

As Kenny Kenemeka reminds us, there's still a good chance of Jason Peters making a full comeback from his ruptured Achilles tendon... medical technology and surgical technique have come a long way, and with personal dedication to rehab, Peters may be back at left tackle. But it most likely won't be in 2012. Maybe 2013 at best. Until then, it's "Next Man Up'...
