JAMES CASEY NEWS

Should the Philadelphia Eagles draft Teddy Bridgewater if he’s available at No. 22?

For those who are unaware, the Philadelphia Eagles’ draft strategy is to select the best player available when the Birds’ pick is up. This couldn’t be more evident than during the second round last year, when the Eagles took tight end Zach Ertz months after signing James Casey to a lucrative deal. Could the Eagles be in a similar situation this year? Quite possibly. Louisville...

The 10 best free agent tight ends of this offseason

The Eagles don’t need a tight end right now, and are actually pretty set at the moment. Brent Celek and Zach Ertz immediately factor into their plans, while James Casey may is a special teams wizard. Casey’s situation could be one to monitor, however. His cap hit is just south of $4 million dollars in 2014, a good chunk of money for a third-string tight end. When the Eagles signed...

Eagles' tight-end depth could lead to changes

Last March, after the Eagles signed fullback/tight end James Casey to a three-year deal, coach Chip Kelly discussed the NFL’s trend of two-tight end offenses and suggested that the tandem of Casey and Brent Celek could be the foundation of his first-year offense. And then came Zach Ertz. Kelly plucked the Stanford tight end in the second round last April, 35th overall, and further...

Will Tight Ends Continue To Make Big Impact For Eagles?

Nick Foles threw 34 passes in Sunday’s win against the Cardinals. Over one-third of those passes were intended for either Brent Celek or Zach Ertz. The two tight ends combined for nine receptions for 97 yards and all three Eagles touchdowns. The combination also contributed to the offense in ways that don’t appear on the stat sheet.
