Haason Reddick sets his standard

PHILADELPHIA – You don’t need analytics or next-generation stats to explain Haason Reddick ‘s standard. The Eagles’ new $15 million edge rusher wants to affect every game. “At some point, I just feel like I have to make a play that affects the game because that’s what I was brought here to do,” Reddick said

Nick Sirianni confirms torn ACL for Derek Barnett

PHILADELPHIA – Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni confirmed that defensive end Derek Barnett tore the ACL in his left knee during Sunday’s win over Detroit, a season-ending injury for the veteran defensive end.

Four-minute offense gets Eagles out of Detroit with a win

DETROIT – The four-minute offense is one of the staples of NFL preparation, a nod toward having the football with a lead late in the game with an opportunity to siphon the clock.

Miles Sanders is ready for his contract year

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles’ lead back is ready to go on Sunday in Detroit.

Andre Dillard has surgery; Anthony Harris out again

T.J. Edwards settles in as Eagles’ defensive leader

PHILADELPHIA – The defensive green dot is probably a little overrated, something Eagles fans should have learned back in 2017 when Jordan Hicks went down with an Achilles injury.

Who Returns Punts for the Eagles?

PHILADELPHIA – Be careful what you wish for. Most Eagles fans had so soured on Jalen Reagor that they wanted Howie Roseman to do anything to get the failed 2020 first-round pick out of town. Anything turned out to be more than expected as the Eagles’ GM flipped the embattled receiver to Minnesota, where he

PHILADELPHIA – The revolving door at the NovaCare Complex was busy with safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson making his practice debut and quarterback Ian Book preparing to arrive via waivers.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Patrick Johnson was no sure thing to make the Eagles, especially after the team drafted the athletic Kyron Johnson in the sixth round back in April.
