Eagles Training Camp Preview: The Specialists

The Eagles will enter training camp with no competition among their specialist group. That’s shouldn’t be a surprise when it comes to placekicker Jake Elliott, who is coming off a spectacular season, and long snapper Rick Lovato, who remains one of the NFL’s best but it’s curious when discussing punter Arryn Siposs, who faltered badly

Eagles Training Camp Preview: The Safeties

The Eagles aren’t going to bowl anyone over at the safety position but the late addition of veteran Jaquiski Tartt provides a semblance of insurance with the goal of finding competent play on the back end. Veteran Anthony Harris, back for a second season in Philadelphia at a reduced price, is tentatively penciled in to

Eagles Training Camp Preview: The Cornerbacks

The late addition of James Bradberry gives the Eagles one of the top cornerback trios in the NFL entering the 2022 season. Darius Slay remains the star and the CB1 while coming off one of his best seasons in 2021 en route to his fourth Pro Bowl. Slay has shown no signs of slowing down

Eagles Training Camp Preview: Off-Ball Linebackers

It’s still hard to call the Eagles’ linebackers position a strength. There’s no Fred Warner, Bobby Wagner, or Darius Leonard in Philadelphia right now but there is both competency and upside in a unit with four potential paths linebackers coach Nick Rallis could go down. The easiest and likely Plan A is T.J. Edwards building

Eagles Training Camp Preview: Interior Defensive Linemen

The deepest part of the Eagles’ defense entering the 2022 season on paper is Tracy Rocker’s interior defensive line room, a group with significant talent and a nice blend of experience and youth. The four cornerstones are veterans Fletcher Cox and Javon Hargrave, along with the 13th overall pick in April’s draft Jordan Davis, and

Eagles Training Camp Preview: The Edge Rushers

With added talent better equipped for Jonathan Gannon’s defensive vision, the Eagles made a tweak to their coaching staff in the offseason, splitting their front seven talent into three different meeting rooms: the edge rushers are now working with Jeremiah Washburn, the interior defensive linemen are being tutored by Tracy Rocker and the off-ball linebackers

Eagles Training Camp Preview: The Offensive Tackles

There is usually plenty of debate in the NFL when discussing the top players and position groups. When it comes to offensive tackle, the Eagles have a pretty good case of having the best tandem in the league now that former New Orleans left tackle Terron Armstead calls Miami home. Credible minds could debate a

Dick Vermeil on Philadelphia: ‘I Belong Here’

Dick Vermeil only spent seven seasons as a coach in Philadelphia. He spent much of his adult life building a connection with the Delaware Valley, however. When the coach is officially inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next month, fan bases in three cities will feel a sense of pride but Vermeil’s Eagles

Eagles Training Camp Preview: Interior Offensive Linemen

The Eagles have an embarrassment of riches on the Interior Offensive line as a whole and it all starts with veteran center Jason Kelce, the four-time All-Pro who already has his post-career GPS set for Canton. Kelce is coming off one of his better seasons in 2021 after being somewhat invigorated by the infusion of

Eagles Training Camp Preview: The Tight Ends

The Eagles have no issues at the top of the depth chart at tight end with Dallas Goedert, who enters the 2022 season with a big-money extension in the rear-view mirror and an evolving reputation as one of the best two-way tight ends in the NFL. From there, however, it gets a little shaky especially

Eagles’ Tyree Jackson and Brett Toth to Begin Training Camp on PUP List

PHILADELPHIA – While it should come as no surprise, the two Eagles players that suffered torn ACLs in the Week 18 regular-season finale against Dallas — tight end Tyree Jackson and offensive lineman Brett Toth — will not be ready for the start of training camp later this month. According to Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com,

Eagles Training Camp Preview: The Wide Receivers

Things can change very quickly in the NFL and that describes the Eagles at wide receiver where the position went from perceived deficiency into a top-five group (per Pro Football Focus) overnight after the draft-day trade that brought A.J. Brown to Philadelphia. Brown, the talented fourth-year pro acquired for a first-round pick and a whopping

Eagles Training Camp Preview: The Running Backs

It was Miles Sanders who recently called the Eagles’ offense an All-Star team. Ironically, Philadelphia doesn’t have a true star in its running back room but it’s obviously a capable group, at least behind this offensive line with a quarterback that offers the vaunted plus-one in the running game. Philadelphia, of course, led the NFL

Eagles Training Camp Preview: The Quarterbacks

The Eagles’ offense looks good on paper with perhaps the top offensive line in football, two potential difference-makers at receiver, a Pro Bowl-level tight end, and a running back room that might not feature a true bell cow but proved good enough to help Philadelphia lead the NFL in rushing last season. The final piece

Lane Johnson on Jalen Hurts: ‘He Demands Respect’

It’s hardly the first time but Eagles’ star right tackle Lane Johnson again pointed to the leadership qualities of Jalen Hurts when discussing the third-year quarterback. And it’s always interesting when you see a 32-year-old, 10-year veteran who has seen and done it all at the professional level like Johnson essentially validate the ability of

Eagles’ DNA Provides a Solid Floor When it Comes to 2022 Results

Once you turn the corner on the fourth of July you can almost smell the freshly-cut grass and envision NFL training camps. The dead period between OTAs and the kickoff to camp in Philadelphia has featured an almost universal optimistic slant on the roster Howie Roseman has built. The baton will be handed off to

Eagles Will Have Plenty of Options Moving Forward at QB

An interesting narrative has been going around when it comes to the Eagles and the idea that it will be difficult to move in a different direction at quarterback if Jalen Hurts doesn’t progress to the point where the Eagles feel comfortable identifying him as the organization’s long-term future at the game’s most important position.

Former Eagles All-Pro running back Brian Westbrook offered a blunt assessment of Jalen Hurts, the third-year quarterback who might serve as the demarcation line for the 2022 version of the Birds, and whether or not Nick Sirianni’s team is a real contender. There’s plenty of optimism entering July surrounding the Eagles with the latest being

Eagles Sign Second-Round Pick Cam Jurgens; Officially Sign Jaquiski Tartt

Earlier this week we told you not to sweat Cam Jurgens’ contract and the Eagles got it done in plenty of time by inking the 2022 second-round pick to his four-year deal on Friday in plenty of time for training camp which is set to begin on July 26. The Eagles now have their entire
