Inside Jalen Hurts’ ‘best practice’

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – To the outsider, it was pedestrian, a practice session filled with checkdowns and a conservative approach. To the ultimate insider, it was a sight for sore eyes. Jalen Hurts practice on Wednesday against the Miami Dolphins will likely be the last time the third-year quarterback sees an unfriendly face until Sept.

Handicapping the Eagles’ Backup Safety Spot

MIAMI GARDENS – On the eve of the Eagles’ final preseason game against the Miami Dolphins, much of the roster looks set with the initial cutdown to 53 set for Tuesday, Aug. 30. The notable exception to that is safety where players like Josiah Scott, K’Von Wallace, Jaquiski Tartt, Andre Chachere, and Reed Blankenship could

Chargers put chip on Kyzir White’s shoulder

MIAMI GARDENS – Kyzir White is coming off an excellent season with the Los Angeles Chargers in what was a contract year for the 26-year-old Lehigh County native yet the payoff wasn’t there. And that has left a very big chip on a good player’s shoulder, something that should only help the Eagles this season.

Stomach virus sidelines Dolphins; Nick Sirianni raves about Jalen Hurts

MIAMI GARDENS – Things didn’t go as planned for the Eagles Thursday in Miami. The Dolphins were forced to cancel the back end of consecutive joint practices due to a stomach virus that hit the team hard overnight. Miami head coach Mike McDaniel described the issue was with a few players and the goal was

Eagles Trade Ugo Amadi after only nine days

MIAMI GARDENS – Ugo Amadi — we hardly knew you. Amadi’s tenure in Philadelphia lasted all of eight days when the Eagles sent him to Tennessee, along with a 2023 seventh-round pick in exchange for a sixth-round selection in 2023. The Eagles had acquired Amadi on Aug. 15 in a player-for-player deal that sent disappointing

In the end, Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa are both winning

MIAMI GARDENS – Jalen and Tua, Tua and Jalen. That’s been a thing since Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa called Tuscaloosa home. Despite presumptive acrimony of players competing together for one position, however, that’s simply never been the case for the two former Nick Saban signal-callers. The story of Tagovailoa and Hurts is a well-known

Eagles waive three; place Tyree Jackson and Brett Toth on Reserve/PUP List

Eagles waive three: Any hope of seeing Tyree Jackson or Brett Toth early in the season was extinguished on Tuesday when the team moved the dup from the active/PUP list to the reserve/PUP list, a bookkeeping move that means neither player can be in the mix for Philadelphia until at least Week 5 of the

Minshew ‘Preseason’ Mania is a Hit in Cleveland

Gardner Minshew hasn’t had the best summer when it comes to the practice field. Any doubts surrounding Jalen Hurts’ backup diminished greatly on Sunday in Cleveland, however, when Minshew was superlative in one half of work during the Eagles’ 21-20 preseason win over the Browns. With Hurts and the majority of the starters getting their

Sources: Browns plan to keep Kareem Hunt

You don’t need the tin-foil hat or the dark web to conjure up a conspiracy theory about Kareem Hunt and the Eagles. There’s the obvious in that Hunt has asked for a trade and both Browns GM Andrew Berry and his assistant, Catherine Raiche, are very familiar with their former boss in Philadelphia, Howie Roseman.

Jonathan Gannon ‘s HITS principle isn’t all that unique to the NFL. The Eagles’ defensive coordinator brought the acronym with him from Indianapolis and learned the foundational principles of the philosophy in prior stops with Atlanta, Tennessee, and Minnesota. In many ways, the traits of hustle, intensity, takeaways, and smarts are just common sense when

After a rough bout with food poisoning, Zach Pascal has been better than advertised

PHILADELPHIA – For most of the Eagles’ receivers the biggest impediment during an average practice is the organization’s impressive trio of cornerbacks. For Zach Pascal, it was a chicken quesadilla. The veteran receiver loves his Mexican food but the emotion went unrequited days before training camp began when tainted food wreaked havoc on Pascal’s insides.

Eagles reach cutdown to 85 by waiving three players with injury designations

PHILADELPHIA – After Tuesday’s practice, the Eagles got down to the league-mandated limit of 85 by waiving three players with injury designations: WR Lance Lenoir, safety Jared Mayden, and cornerback Jimmy Moreland. Mayden missed the 86-minute with an ankle injury while Moreland had just returned from his own ankle injury and was working in a

The Eagles dealt underachieving wide receiver turned tight end J.J. Arcega-Whiteside to the Seattle Seahawks for defensive back Ugo Amadi. Arcega-Whiteside was pulled from Sunday’s practice for what was described as a non-injury-related matter which turned out to be the trade. Eagles have agreed to terms to trade TE JJ Arcega-Whiteside to the Seahawks for

Eagles Training Camp Report: Tempers Flare and DeVonta is Back

Tempers typically flare at some point during physical football practices in the heat.

That changed on Sunday despite things being a bit cooler at the NovaCare Complex with backup left tackle Andre Dillard being the

‘Egregiously Awful’ Hit Won’t Deter Eagles, Hurts

PHILADELPHIA – The hit was so bad even Jets coach Robert Saleh called it “egregiously awful” after New York’s 24-21 preseason comeback win over the Eagles on Friday night.
