The past few days, weeks, months have been more stressful than a hermit crab looking for a new house. If you’re familiar with my (very funny) Twitter account, you know I’m one to share The Office videos to describe certain Eagles situations.
Now that Nick Sirianni’s new team has agreed to send Carson Wentz to Sirianni’s old team, the Eagles will have a new opening-day starter in 2021. Philadelphia does have the sixth overall pick, which could be used on a QB.
The Eagles need a rangy-free safety that can cover the middle of the field and although Rodney McLeod is the current starter at the position, Philadelphia should consider an upgrade, while moving their captain to strong safety.
PHILADELPHIA — Even now, more than a week after it was reported that Carson Wentz was being traded to Indianapolis, the shock lingers in many sections of the Eagles' fan base, especially for Eagles superfan Giovanni Hamilton.
A refreshed era of Eagles football is upon us and with it comes a need to go out with the old and in with the new. Howie Roseman still has to find around $40M in cap space before the Eagles can proceed properly, and that means likely saying goodbye to some big names and even bigger contracts.
Mel Kiper has a new mock draft up and for the first time ever, the NFL draft guru is now including trade scenarios. The Eagles have a ton of needs heading into this year’s draft, and it comes as experts around the league believe Howie Roseman has his eyes on a quarterback with the No.
It’s contract extension time for some around and as the Eagles work to free up salary-cap space, extending some big named vets or ascending younger players can free up cash now, with a price to come later down the line.
In 2020, the Philadelphia Eagles failed to get a whole lot of production out of their rookie class. In a year that was supposed to be all about “re-tooling” and “getting younger”, the Eagles essentially did the complete opposite.
The Philadelphia Eagles are currently trying to see their way out of the fog. Their financial struggles have been well-documented and are going to weigh them down for the immediate future, as they slowly shed older players with heavy contracts.
As the NFL world debates the Eagles’ love for quarterbacks, the Birds truly have a decision to make with the No. 6 overall pick in April’s draft. With discussions about Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, and Kyle Pitts permeating the airwaves, Bleacher Report says the Eagles’ biggest mistake could be ignoring the wide receiver position in the draft.
The move doesn’t fit from a rebuilding standpoint, but every team needs depth and that includes the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are set to retool several positions on the roster, but the offensive line appears to be set after depth was restored during the 2020 season that saw almost 16 different offensive line combinations utilized.
That fan is EYE, but I represent the feelings of at least half of the current Eagles fan base… and I know by cognitive diffusion that DJax is appreciated by nearly every Eagles fan who picked up on the sport by at least their middle school years in 2008.
In the immediate aftermath of the Eagles’ decision to trade Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts, there have been differing opinions about whether the Eagles should—or will—draft a quarterback in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
It’s easy to forget that Carson Wentz looked like an MVP-caliber quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles just a few short years ago. That was reflected in what the organization thought of him at the time in some thoughts that didn’t age well.
