Examining the fit and perception of Terrell Edmunds landing with the Eagles

In many ways, the signing of Terrell Edmunds by the Eagles nearly 10 days into free agency seems a little too good to be true. Edmunds’ resume doesn’t match Philadelphia’s other low-risk, high-reward lottery tickets like Rashaad Penny or Justin Evans. Edmunds is a 26-year-old player with five years of starting experience on a good

Eagles and Lane Johnson agree on 1-year contract extension

The Eagles and Lane Johnson agreed to a one-year contract extension that will give the All-Pro right tackle $30 million upfront for significant salary-cap relief. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the deal as $33.445 million overall and technically extends Johnson’s deal from 2025 to 2026. Arguably the best right tackle in the NFL, Johnson, 32, hasn’t

Eagles on Ezekiel Elliott’s radar

The Eagles are on the radar of two-time All-Pro running back Ezekiel Elliott, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The four-time 1,000-yard rusher was released by Dallas in mid-March due to salary-cap restraints. The No. 4 overall pick in 2016 NFL Draft, Elliott is set to turn 28 in July but already has seven seasons under

The brash defensive back agreed to terms with Detroit on Sunday night in the form of a one-year deal that could reach as high as $8 million, a far cry from the franchise tag of $14.46M many speculated the Eagles could

The curious case of C.J. Gardner-Johnson

You can debate the reasons all you want but the market has spoken for Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, or at least the calendar foreshadows it has. There aren’t too many reasons to surmise Gardner-Johnson is sitting on dueling offers for significant money in free agency. That’s just not how the modern NFL works. Budgets are allocated and

Day 1 doldrums were expected by the Eagles

PHILADELPHIA – The doom and gloomers were out on the first day of the legal negotiation period, the time of year when the NFL gets turned upside down.

Known for targeting players early when it comes to contract extensions, Howie Roseman was quiet through the 2022-23 season and the Eagles GM explained the reason at the NFL Scouting Combine on Tuesday. Philadelphia was simply too good and the leverage wasn’t there for the organization with so many players having career years. “Obviously we
