Eagles safety Earl Wolff says he wants six picks this season

If the Philadelphia Eagles had a major weakness in 2013 it was their secondary. After giving up the most passing yards per game in the NFL (289.9) the front office decided to make a few changes. Malcom Jenkins and Nolan Carroll are in, and Patrick Chung is likely out, but the biggest improvement that the Eagles can make might come from safety Earl Wolff. During his rookie season...

Is the Eagles secondary really new and improved?

There’s no disputing that the Philadelphia Eagles were an offensive juggernaut in 2013. They racked up more rushing yards than any other NFL team and scored 442 total points and 53 touchdowns. The problem came on the other side of the ball: specifically in the Eagles secondary. Philly gave up nearly 290 passing yards per game last season – the most in the NFL. That’s why the...

Power Rankings: Philadelphia Eagles rated one of least likeable NFL franchises

In recent days, soccer fans have been coming out of the woodwork, showing their allegiance to “the world’s game” as World Cup fever starts to reach a fever pitch.

What do the Eagles have in cornerback Nolan Carroll?

Philadelphia Eagles’ cornerback Nolan Carroll is turning heads at team practices this off-season, according the reporters who have been in attendance. The 2014 free agent acquisition solidifies desperately needed depth at the position after shaky performances from last year’s backups. In fact, Carroll may just work himself into the starting lineup.

Eagles mini-camp dilemma—do you teach cornerbacks to “cheat” or not?

The cornerbacks invited to Eagles mini-camp in 2014 are (in alphabetical order) Brandon Boykin, Roc Carmichael, Nolan Carroll II, Bradley Fletcher, Curtis Marsh, Davon Morgan, Jaylen Watkins and Cary Williams. The question in my mind and maybe in the minds of the defensive secondary coaching staff right now is—how much of the Richard Sherman/Seattle secondary school of technique...

The top 10 CBs the Philadelphia Eagles can draft next month

It’s no secret that the Philadelphia Eagles need to draft a cornerback. Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher were serviceable last season, but neither player is the future at the position. Brandon Boykin is an excellent slot cornerback, but that’s about it — he’s too small to be as good outside as he is inside. Nolan Carroll was merely brought in for depth purposes, and Roc...

The exact numbers are 2 years at $3.65 million with only $750,000 guaranteed...
