SEC-tinted iron set to sharpen Tyler Steen

PHILADELPHIA – The NovaCare Complex has not placed a bid to host the SEC Championship Game but the average Eagles’ practice will have strong ties to the two marquee teams in college football’s toughest conference. And it’s Alabama on offense — DeVonta Smith, Landon Dickerson, and rookie third-round pick Tyler Steen, who started at a

Analyzing and Grading Eagles Draft Picks

Round 1, Pick 9: Jalen Carter, DL, Georgia The Philadelphia Eagles were fortunate enough to be able to select Jalen Carter with their first selection of the 2023 draft. Several months prior to the ongoing investigation that he was involved in Carter was believed to be the definitive first overall pick going into the draft.

A throwback for the QB factory in Tanner McKee

PHILADELPHIA – The quarterback factory’s new spring line includes a throwback. Stanford’s Tanner McKee, the Eagles’ sixth-round pick at No. 188 overall on Saturday, is an old-school, 6-foot-6, 230-pound pocket passer set to arrive on a team with a distinctly new-school offensive approach based on Jalen Hurts’ dual-threat abilities. Too many assume that the Eagles

Nolan Smith brings energy, enthusiasm and leadership to Eagles

PHILADELPHIA – Few would have blinked if the Philadelphia Eagles drafted Georgia edge rusher Nolan Smith at No. 10 overall on Thursday night. It took a little longer than that but the Eagles got their fourth Georgia defensive star over the last two years when they pulled the trigger on Smith at No. 30. Philadelphia

Eagles move up in third round due to Jonathan Gannon tampering investigation

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles and Arizona Cardinals agreed to a pre-draft trade tied to tampering allegations involving Jonathan Gannon. The former Philadelphia defensive coordinator was hired as the head coach in Arizona after Super Bowl LVII but the Cardinals were taking to him after the NFC Championship game, a no-no. The two teams agreed on

‘Money is nice, championships are better’ for Jalen Hurts

PHILADELPHIA – Monday wasn’t supposed to happen. Three years to the day the Eagles shocked the football world by taking Jalen Hurts in the second round of the 2020 draft with a perceived franchise quarterback already in tow, the MVP runner-up took to the dais at the NovaCare Complex as the highest-paid player in the

Howie Roseman’s unveils his poker face for NFL Draft

PHILADELPHIA – Nobody knows. That’s Howie Roseman’s assessment and the NFL’s reigning Executive of the Year gave you a very small peek behind the curtain a week out from the NFL Draft. All those mock drafts you love are for entertainment purposes only. “Nobody has any idea what we’re going to do,” Roseman said during

NFL Draft: Mark Dominik believes Eagles will move up to get difference-making defender

PHILADELPHIA – It’s Bijan or bust for many around the Delaware Valley when it comes to next week’s draft. For those who know Eagles general manager Howie Roseman, however, the thought process is a bit more substantive. Former Tampa Bay general manager and current SiriusXM NFL radio draft analyst Mark Dominik speculated on Roseman’s plan

Schmidty’s 2023 NFL Mock Draft

The 2023 NFL Draft is quickly approaching and there are plenty of scenarios to be on the outlook for. Whether it is the Lamar Jackson dispute, the imminent Aaron Rodgers trade, or any other scenario, teams are destined to pivot and move around their draft boards accordingly. This year’s prospects are proving to be just

Howie Roseman tabbed as NFL’s best GM

Two Super Bowl appearances in five years with two different coaches and quarterbacks. That’s just a portion of the résumé that landed Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman atop the GM rankings released by NFL Media’s Gregg Rosenthal on Thursday. Already the NFL’s reigning executive of the year the Eagles’ Howie Roseman was lauded again

Silly Season is going too far with Devin White

PHILADELPHIA – The only thing more unlikely than the Eagles drafting Texas running back Bijan Robinson at No. 10 overall is the organization trading for off-ball linebacker Devin White, a former second-team All-Pro who once had a Nick Foles-like defensive run through the postseason en route to Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl LV rout of Kansas

How prior relationships steered Marcus Mariota toward the Eagles

PHILADELPHIA – Turns out Marcus Mariota was a natural fit for the Eagles once you peeled a layer or so off the onion. It doesn’t reach as far back as Brian Johnson’s relationship with Jalen Hurts but the Eagles’ new backup quarterback has his own longstanding relationship with Philadelphia’s new QBs coach Alex Tanney. Tanney,

Eagles look at another pass rusher in LSU’s B.J. Ojulari

PHILADELPHIA – While it’s factually correct to say the Eagles brought in All-Pro edge rusher Haason Reddick for his ability to get to the quarterback last year in free agency, it’s also incomplete. The Philadelphia brass also assessed that Reddick’s ability to beat offensive linemen quickly was paramount in a modern NFL where more and

Marcus Mariota couldn’t pass on opportunity, finally arrives in Philly

It was eight years later than many people expected but Marcus Mariota is finally an Eagle. Not as the No. 2 overall pick or the face of the franchise but as one of the more accomplished backup quarterbacks in football with the mindset to help Jalen Hurts as much as he can while attempting to

Kentavius Street expects big things to continue on Eagles’ D-Line

PHILADELPHIA – Turns out Darius Slay is a bit of a trendsetter when it comes to the Eagles. The five-time Pro Bowl cornerback will quickly correct you if you happen to call him by his first name. Slay prefers “Slay” if you’re going to address him and now the veteran has some company with new

Fletcher Cox and Darius Slay confirm how close they were to leaving Eagles

The Eagles were very close to losing two defensive veterans this offseason as we’ve reported on BIRDS 365 and now both players have confirmed just how close they were to leaving Philadelphia.

The offseason theme for Howie Roseman continued Thursday when the Eagles agreed to bring in defensive tackle Kentavius Street on a one-year deal. Originally a fourth-round pick by San Francisco in 2018, Street missed his rookie season with a torn ACL injury suffered during his Pro Day at North Carolina State. Set to turn 27

It wasn’t Jeffrey Lurie’s “gold standard” quote or Howie Roseman’s “quarterback factory” but every once in a while the top of the Eagles’ food chain will say something into an open microphone and quickly regret it, understanding the nature of the market and the fan base.

You never want to hand any player anything in the NFL, especially one who has 44 career snaps under his belt and that seemed to be the sentiment behind Nick Sirianni’s cautious approach with Cam Jurgens this week at the NFL’s annual spring meeting.
