Jason Peters is the preferred left foot of the NFL

cheap Philadelphia Eagles jerseys

Two more Eagles will be joining Jason Peters and Fletcher Cox at the Pro Bowl in Orlando this weekend, as Jason Kelce and Darren Sproles have been added to the NFC roster.

So they entered free agency in the spring of 2009 intent on doing just that, even if the moves came at a considerable cost. They acted first in free agency, signing Stacy Andrews – the brother of right guard Shawn – from the Cincinnati Bengals. And then in April, just five days prior to that year’s draft, the Eagles struck a deal with Buffalo to acquire disgruntled left tackle Jason Peters, a converted tight end who had been to two Pro Bowls with the Bills and who wanted to be paid as one of the best at his position in the NFL.

It’s fair to say that Jason Peters, one of the premier left tackles in the entire NFL, is right at the top of the list among the MIE for 2016.

Both Kelce and Sproles are replacing Atlanta Falcons players. With the Falcons headed to Houston for Super Bowl LI, center Alex Mack and running back Devonta Freeman will not be attending the Pro Bowl. For Kelce, the Pro Bowl nod is his second as a pro, with his first appearance coming after his 2014 season. Kelce started all 16 games for the Eagles for the second-consecutive season.

He was a first alternate this year and really should have been chosen. One of the things that hurt him is he wasn’t expected to play at such a high level. Pro Bowl players usually have gaudy stats, come from winning teams, or are veterans who have been selected before and have a strong reputation. Graham fell through the cracks in those areas, but his 2016 season really put him on the map. If he can repeat this performance next season, he will make the Pro Bowl.

Additionally, restricted free agent guard Matt Tobin signed his one-year tender Monday morning. In three seasons, Tobin appeared in 30 games for the Eagles, starting 20 of them. He saw extended action as a starter in 2015 after injuries along the offensive line.

The 5-11, 199-pound Gratz was drafted in 2013 out of UConn. He played in 10 games (8 starts) as a rookie and tied for the team lead with two interceptions. He became a full-time starter in 2014 and started 13 out of the 15 games that he played in. Gratz posted a career-high 55 tackles that season. He was released by the Jaguars this past October and claimed by the Rams, with whom he played three games with.

On Friday morning, the Eagles officially tendered a one-year contract to guard Matt Tobin, who is scheduled to be a restricted free agent.

The Eagles will have the right to match any outside contract offer that Tobin receives and, depending on the level of the tender, could receive draft-pick compensation if Tobin leaves for another team.Nike Eagles #91 Fletcher Cox Black Youth Stitched NFL Limited Rush Jersey

Lovato was a rookie in 2015 who landed with the Packers in a similar situation like he is in now in Philadelphia. A Middletown, New Jersey native, Lovato was signed late last year after an injury to the Philadelphia Eagles jersey china  primary long snapper Brett Goode. He was briefly with Washington earlier this season when long snapper Nick Sundberg was injured.

The Eagles signed two more players to reserve/future contracts on Wednesday – guard Josh LeRibeus and wide receiver Dom Williams.

The 6-2, 310-pound LeRibeus has 12 games of NFL starting experience under his belt. The former third-round pick of the Washington Redskins out of SMU in 2012 played five games at guard in his rookie season including the regular season finale when Alfred Morris rushed for a career-high 200 yards.

In 2015, LeRibeus was moved to center and started 11 games when Kory Lichtensteiger was sidelined with a neck injury. He was in the starting lineup for the team’s four-game win streak at the end of the season when Washington captured the NFC East crown.

The Eagles also have Josh Andrews, a guard/center

On Tuesday afternoon, linebacker Stephen Tulloch reunited with the man who had him drafted 10 years ago.

brian dawkins black eagles jersey

“The Tennessee Titans were about to draft a guy from another school, so Coach (Jim) Schwartz goes into (Titans head coach Jeff) Fisher’s office and shows him tape of my highlights in college and changed Coach Fisher’s mind,” Tulloch said. “I was the 116th pick in the 2006 draft and the rest is history.”

Tulloch and Schwartz prepare for their third stint together. Schwartz spent three years as his defensive coordinator in Tennessee from 2006-08, and three as Tulloch’s head coach Detroit Lions from 2011-13. When Tulloch got the call from the Eagles, he was ready to go to work and play the game he’s loved since he was a 5-year-old.

After linebacker Joe Walker was lost for the season with an ACL injury, it was clear the Eagles were going to need some additional help at the linebacker position. That’s why it was no surprise to anyone, including the players currently in the locker room, when head coach Doug Pederson announced the team had agreed to terms with veteran Stephen Tulloch on Monday.

Welcome back, Rasheed Bailey. The local kid who had such a strong 2015 preseason for the Eagles is back after seeing some time in Jacksonville and then San Diego, where he suffered a preseason injury last year and was waived.

The Eagles know enough about Bailey, who adds to the competition at wide receiver.

“He is a guy that has route skill, a guy that has ball skills, a guy that we’re excited to have back,” Douglas said.

Quarterback Matt Barkley replaced Mark Sanchez and hit rookie wide receiver Rasheed Bailey on a pair of consecutive passes of 25 yards to put the Eagles in position for a 35-yard field goal from Cody Parkey.Nike Eagles #71 Jason Peters Midnight Green Name & Number Pullover NFL Hoodie

It’s certainly possible that the Eagles will add some ammunition to the offensive line in the offseason, either in free agency or in the draft, bolstering depth and increasing competition. Seumalo figures to Philadelphia Eagles jerseys push for playing time at either guard or center in 2017 and Vaitai played well enough at right tackle that the Eagles think he can be a strong player on the edges of the offensive line. The Eagles also have Josh Andrews, a guard/center, and Dillon Gordon, a converted tight end from LSU with enormous athletic ability, as a project at the tackle positions.

Overall, the offensive line is in good shape. Is it a dominating line? At times this year, the Eagles have been dominating. Another year together, and  a full season with Johnson at right tackle, certainly would help the picture.

Guard/center Josh Andrews suffered a concussion on Wednesday at practice, making him unable to play on Sunday against Miami. In need of a backup center, the Eagles plan to bring back Vandervelde. To make room for Vandervelde on the roster, the Eagles released linebacker Brad Jones.

Paul Turner and David Watford are on the team’s practice squad

With their eighth and final pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Eagles once again addressed the defense, selecting Oregon linebacker Joe Walker with the 251st-overall pick. Walker rounds out a very balanced draft for the Eagles, as the team selected four offensive players and four defensive players.

After linebacker Joe Walker was lost for the season with an ACL injury, it was clear the Eagles were going to need some additional help at the linebacker position. That’s why it was no surprise to anyone, including the players currently in the locker room, when head coach Doug Pederson announced the team had agreed to terms with veteran Stephen Tulloch on Monday.

Wide receiver David Watford was with the Eagles in the rookie minicamp earlier this offseason on a tryout basis. A dual-threat quarterback in college, Watford began his career at Virginia and transferred to Hampton where he threw 21 touchdown passes in 2015.

At the same time, Roseman admitted that it is “disappointing” to be spending so much time on this situation ahead of Sunday’s big NFC East clash with the New York Giants. The Eagles are “trying to build something that lasts,” Roseman said, and the organization was “comfortable” with the decision considering all of the facts that had been gathered.

Roseman added that there has been no corresponding roster move to replace Huff’s spot as of yet, but one will be made ahead of Sunday’s game. The Eagles currently have four wide receivers on the active roster: Nelson Agholor, Dorial Green-Beckham, Jordan Matthews and Bryce Treggs. Paul Turner and David Watford are on the team’s practice squad.

“It’s right there,” running back Terrell Watson said as he pointed to the football in the upper left corner of his locker that he carried into the end zone for his first NFL touchdown in the Eagles’ 27-13 victory over the Cowboys on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

Nike Eagles #27 Malcolm Jenkins White Men’s Stitched NFL Elite Jersey

Watson was called up from the practice squad on Friday for his first NFL game, a moment he has prepared for his whole life. When he struggled with a learning disability at a young age, the support of his grandparents, Billy and Janice Watson, who took him in when he was only a few weeks old after his birth mother left him on their doorstep, allowed him to channel his energy into improving himself both on and off the field. Watson’s opportunity of a lifetime had finally presented itself.Nike Eagles #27 Malcolm Jenkins Midnight Green Team Color Men's Stitched NFL Limited Tank Top Jersey

A crowd of reporters hovered in a different area of the locker room inside the NovaCare Complex on Wednesday. Toward the back, in the middle of the floor, stand portable, makeshift lockers for players on the practice squad. That was where you found every recording device interested in getting to know the newest Eagle. Once practiced wrapped up, in walked Terrell Watson.

“It’s a moment you have to stop and just embrace it. It’s just an opportunity that not many people get to do this. And it was awesome. It was an awesome feeling,” Watson recalled. “You dream about moments like that sometimes. But you never know when it’s going to come and Philadelphia Eagles jersey authentic  I’m blessed enough to have an opportunity to play and have the opportunity to be called up the last game of the season and I’m happy with my end results. There’s stuff I need to work on still, but I’m happy going into the new year knowing that I know where I stand and knowing the work I need to do.”

He entered the Eagles-Cowboys matchup on offense with 14:10 remaining in the first half. His first touch was a 1-yard run up the middle. He carried the ball nine times for 28 yards. With 1:23 left in the season, Watson found the back of the end zone on another 1-yard carry. His grandparents were in attendance and able to share the unforgettable memory.

Ryan Mathews has been a full partRyan Mathewsicipant this week in practice

eagles salute to service jersey

After scratching and clawing to take the lead over Detroit at 23-21, the Eagles’ offense was on the field with a chance to secure a fourth-straight win to start the season. With 2:41 left in the game and a third-and-2 situation, head coach Doug Pederson called a sweep play to the right side. Fighting for the first down, Ryan Mathewsfumbled the ball. Detroit recovered and eventually kicked the game-winning field goal.

During Friday morning’s press conference, head coach Doug Pederson gave injury updates on running back Ryan Mathews (knee), wide receiver Jordan Matthews (ankle), wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham(abdomen) and tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (knee) ahead of this weekend’s game against Washington.

“DGB is going to be listed going into this game as questionable,” Pederson said. “Obviously, Big V will be out this game. Ryan Mathews has been a full partRyan Mathewsicipant this week in practice. Today we’re just going to back him down just a touch so we can keep him ready to go for Sunday, so he’ll be listed as questionable. And then Jordan Matthews (will be listed as) questionable with his injury as well with that ankle. But everybody else is ready to go.”

Earlier this week, Mathews and Matthews returned to practice after both missed last weekend’s game against the Bengals. While those two offensive pieces look to return, Green-Beckham and Vaitai were held from practice due to their injuries on Wednesday and Thursday. Vaitai injured his knee during the Seattle game and has not played since, while Green-Beckham was hurt in last Sunday’s matchup.

Nike Eagles #10 DeSean Jackson White Stitched NFL Jersey

On the debut of NFL Fantasy LIVE’s Top 50 Players of 2016, running back Ryan Mathews was named as the No. 41-ranked player on Monday night.

Signed by the Eagles in 2015, Mathews had 539 yards rushing, 20 receptions for an additional 146 yards receiving and seven total touchdowns despite playing only 21 percent of the team’s offensive snaps. Mathews was by Philadelphia Eagles jersey china far the team’s most efficient rusher with a 5.1 yards per carry average, good for fourth best in the entire NFL.Nike Eagles #10 DeSean Jackson White Stitched NFL Jersey

On Saturday morning, head coach Doug Pederson gave updates on the injury front, officially ruling out running back Ryan Mathews (knee) and tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (knee) for Monday’s game against Green Bay.

“Big V obviously with the MCL sprain, he’s not ready to go so rule him out,” Pederson said. “And Ryan Mathews with his MCL, his right knee MCL sprain, hasn’t practiced all week and still not there. So, I’m going to go ahead and we’re going to rule him out for this game as well.”

Prior to the Eagles’ Friday practice, head coach Doug Pederson gave injury updates regarding wide receiver Bryce Treggs and defensive end Vinny Curry.

Treggs (knee), who did not practice on Thursday, will be out for Sunday’s game. Curry (knee) is still day-to-day but Pederson believes the defensive end will play against Cleveland.

The Eagles’ offense didn’t make many splashy plays during Thursday night’s 17-0 win over Pittsburgh, but perhaps the biggest highlight came from undrafted rookie Paul Turner, who hauled in a 23-yard, one-handed catch, drawing oohs and aahs from the Heinz Field crowd.

Marshall said: for me, this is a long road.

With their first pick on the third day of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Eagles added to their depth in the backfield by adding running back Wendell Smallwood out of West Virginia with the 153rd-overall pick.

At 5-10, 208 pounds, Smallwood was among the top performers at the NFL Scouting Combine in the three-cone and 60-yard shuttle drills. With the Mountaineers, Smallwood was the Big 12’s leading rushing in 2015, racking up 1,519 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 13 games.

The Eagles have remained very high on rookie running back Wendell Smallwood despite the fact that he has not played in the first two preseason games due to a quad injury.

Smallwood said on Saturday that he “was trying to force myself to have a good week” so that he could suit up last Thursday against the Steelers. Smallwood was limited in practice leading up to the game, and still couldn’t hit top speed so he was given more time to rest.

A few days shy of his 10th birthday, Wendell Smallwood had his eyes glued to the television on a chilly January night as his Eagles took on the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round of the 2003 playoffs. His face was covered in a strange brand of paint, one he now knows wasn’t intended to be used on his skin, and his mother, Nichelle, couldn’t help but voice her displeasure with that decision.

Davis has tremendous potential. He is big (6-3, 209 pounds), athletic, and skilled. He was incredibly productive at Western Michigan. He caught 331 passes, with 52 of them going for touchdowns. Davis averaged 16 yards a catch for his career, so he wasn’t just a workhorse receiver. He was a playmaker. Davis was fast enough to be a downfield threat. I think he was at his best after the catch. You could see not only his talent, but his toughness and competitive streak as well. Davis fought for every yard he could. He was a threat to break a big play every time he got his hands on the ball.Nike Eagles Blank Black Alternate Youth Stitched NFL Limited Jersey

In terms of former Eagles, you could compare him to Irving Fryar. In three seasons with the Eagles, Fryar caught 222 passes and 19 touchdowns. You could compare Davis to Texans star DeAndre Hopkins.

Marcus Johnson signed with the Eagles in the 2016 offseason as a rookie free agent after a four-year career at Texas. During his collegiate career, Johnson played in 42 games (18 starts) and totaled 61 catches for 793 yards (13.0 avg.) and four scores.

Rookie free agent running back Byron Marshall arrived to the Eagles as an undrafted free agent. After failing to make the 53-man roster out of Training Camp (thanks mainly to the depth on the Eagles roster at the position), Marshall was added to the practice squad. Since then, he’s been working hard to get his shot, and all that hard work has helped him rebound from an ankle injury he suffered during his last season at Oregon.

“It’s been – for myself especially – a long road, just with not getting to play last year and being hurt (while at Oregon),” said Marshall.

Nike Eagles Blank Black Alternate Youth Stitched NFL Limited Jersey

On Monday afternoon, the Eagles announced that all 87 eligible players on the current roster reported for the start of this week’s mandatory minicamp. Three rookies – running back Byron Marshall, guard Isaac Seumalo and Philadelphia Eagles jerseys defensive end Aziz Shittu will not participate due to NCAA graduation rules that state a player can not join his NFL team full-time until his school’s academic year has come to a close.

Of course, there are two other players to keep in mind as well in Byron Marshall and Cedric O’Neal. The two rookies find themselves on the lower end of the totem pole, but it’s impossible to predict what the future could hold for them if they come out firing in Training Camp and the preseason.

Pederson said that what teams looks for in running backs have changed over the years. The Eagles would relish a running back who can run between the tackles, get to the outside, stay on the field for all three downs, pass protect, run routes, and catch the ball.

Another off-field concern that teams must weigh in the draft process in injury history. Wide receiver John Ross broke the Combine record for the fastest time in the 40-yard dash. He has, however, suffered a torn ACL, torn meniscus, and recently underwent surgery for a torn labrum. At least as far as the Eagles are concerned, Ross’ medical report won’t take him off the draft board.

The story of Jordan Hicks’ 2015 rookie season is well-known

philadelphia eagles throwback jacket

The last time Eagles fans saw Jordan Hicks on the field, he was racing 67 yards for a pick-six against the Dallas Cowboys in early November, a return touchdown that was extremely important given the 33-27 final score in overtime. Later in the game, Hicks suffered a pectoral muscle injury that prematurely ended a special rookie season in Eagles green.

The story of Jordan Hicks’ 2015 rookie season is well-known. The third-round pick, thought of at the beginning of the year as a depth player who could play a role on special teams, breaks into the starting lineup due to injuries and skyrockets into one of the most dependable players on the Eagles’ defense. His interception return touchdown against Dallas in late November stands as one of the most memorable plays of the entire season.

Jordan Hicks accepts the challenge, and it’s a large one, as the middle linebacker of a defense that will play with a downhill mentality 180 degrees opposite of what the Eagles defense did in 2015, his rookie season. The Kid sure has been asked to grow up in a hurry in the NFL.

Nike Eagles #81 Jordan Matthews White Men’s Stitched NFL Elite Jersey

We saw it last season, how the third-round pick from Texas who was supposed to have a “redshirt” rookie year was instead tossed in the ocean with no life raft to hold. Injuries forced Hicks onto the field, and he excelled from the jump, igniting an Eagles defense looking for a spark.

He was in the right place for sure late in the first half on Sunday night, dropping into coverage and intercepting Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott as he threw for wide receiver Brice Butler in the end Philadelphia Eagles jersey cheap zone to kill a Cowboys drive. The play turned out to be a big “swing” moment in the game as the Eagles used eight plays to move from their 20-yard line to the Dallas 36-yard line. It gave Caleb Sturgis a chance to kick a 55-yard field goal just before halftime that pushed the Eagles to a 13-10 lead after two quarters.

Does that mean he’s going to hear his name called when the NFL Network has its Pro Bowl Selection Show on Tuesday? Maybe. Maybe not. Hicks is a second-year player who hasn’t yet established his name and his reputation throughout the league, but that’s going to come in time. What we’ve seen from Hicks in 13 games has been encouraging and impressive.

“He’s been playing at a high level for us this year, playing good against the run and the pass,” defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. “There’s a lot on his plate when it comes to making adjustments, making checks. We have a lot of calls that are double calls, one call versus one thing, another versus something else. Does a good job with all that stuff. I think he’s been a good, consistent player for us this year.”

Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks will face his younger brother, Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks, for the first time in his football career.Nike Eagles #90 Marcus Smith II Black Men's Stitched NFL Limited 2016 Salute To Service Jersey

Mychal Kendricks has posted at least 88 tackles in each of his first four NFL seasons. So far, he has only 10 on the season and he’s playing slightly fewer than a third of the snaps on defense.

“I’m taking it one game at a time. Where I’m at as a player as a person as a teammate,” Mychal Kendricks. “You know I’m a true believer that I can only control the things that I can control. When I’m in there, I have to capitalize on the time that I’m in and that’s that.”

In 2012, Mychal Kendricks anxiously awaited draft weekend. He didn’t know which team would select him or what the future would hold. Now, the linebacker is set to be an Eagle through the 2019 season, thanks to the extension he signed in 2015, and has four seasons worth of starting experience under his belt.

With the 2016 NFL Draft coming up, Kendricks discussed the things he’s learned from his time in the league in hopes of passing down those lessons to players who are now going through a similar process. Read what the linebacker had to say about his journey.

Brent Celek has undoubtedly been one of the best tight ends in Eagles history

Philadelphia Eagles jersey authentic

The day after his 31st birthday, Brent Celek has another reason to celebrate. On Tuesday afternoon, he and the Eagles agreed to terms on a new three-year contract that will keep the tight end in Philadelphia through the 2018 season.

A nine-year veteran, Celek has continuously been a dominant force for his team. The tight end has 371 catches, 4,713 receiving yards and 30 touchdowns to his name, ranking him second all time among Eagles tight ends in the three categories. He trails only Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Famer Pete Retzlaff. Additionally, his receptions are also tied for fifth most in franchise history, standing as a testament to the work Celek has put in each year.

In the first nine years of his NFL career, tight end Brent Celek has suited up and played in 143 games. For as physical as Celek has been as a pass catcher and a blocker, he’s missed just one game out of 144. The game came in 2012, when Celek sat out against the Cincinnati Bengals on a Thursday night in December. A shortened week held him back from passing through the league’s concussion protocol in time to play.

“It (ticks) me off, but it’s in the past now,” said Celek of missing the game against his hometown team. “I got my one, so hopefully never again.”

At 31 years old, Celek is participating in his 10th Training Camp with the Eagles. While the veteran has a different perspective and more experience than some of the younger players on the team, he still needs a few days to get adjust to the daily Training Camp grind.

Brent Celek jersey

Brent Celek has undoubtedly been one of the best tight ends in Eagles history. He’s the longest-tenured non-specialist on the roster now and is second in franchise history among tight ends in virtually every receiving category, but at the  wholesale Eagles jerseys time of the 2007 NFL Draft, Celek didn’t know what to expect.

Coming out of Cincinnati, Celek was one of the biggest Combine snubs that year, something he says lit a fire under him. When his named was called by the Philadelphia Eagles, he was ready to get to work. Now, the tight end has 4,713 career receiving yards and 30 career touchdowns to his name. Reflecting back on his own draft experience, Celek wouldn’t change a thing. He’s an Eagle through and through.

Now in his 10th professional season (all with the same team, a list that includes only 10 active NFL skill-position players with at least 150 games of regular season experience) Celek’s been there for the peaks, catching 19 passes for 151 yards and three touchdowns during a playoff run to the 2008 NFC Championship Game against Arizona. He’s been there for the valleys – seeing the Eagles go 4-12 in 2012, the team’s worst record since the 1998 campaign.

He’s been through different coaches and different systems. He flourished as one of the best yards-after-catch tight ends in the NFL under Andy Reid. He transformed into one of the league’s best blocking tight ends in Chip Kelly’s high-octane, rushing-focused system. He’s seen coordinators, head coaches and teammates come and go.

Anthony Denham was a rookie free agent signing of the Texans in 2014. He finished his rookie season on the Texans’ active roster. He originally joined the Eagles’ practice squad in October. Denham was released, but returned mid-December.

Next season, the Eagles will play six games against their NFC East opponents, while also taking on all of the NFC West and AFC West teams to go along with the same-place finishers from the NFC South and NFC North.Nike Eagles #17 Nelson Agholor White Pink Women's Stitched NFL Limited Rush Fashion Jersey

As the Eagles continue to build the roster for the 2016 season, the team secured a key depth player on Wednesday, re-signing Najee Goode to a one-year contract.

It’s not one of the deepest position groups in the draft, but there are some seriously talented linebacker prospects in the 2017 class. Whether it’s the super-talented top prospect in Reuben Foster, the flashy Jabrill Peppers, the uber-athlete in Zach Cunningham or the sleepers like Jayon Brown and Anthony Walker, there are a lot of names to be aware of this week in Indianapolis. Let’s look at who we expect to shine at the Combine.

The other big newsworthy note for the Eagles is that wide receiver Nelson Agholor is inactive

cheap Eagles jerseys

In nine seasons with the Eagles, Quick totaled 6,464 receiving yards, scored 62 touchdowns and earned a spot on the NFC Pro Bowl roster five years in a row from 1983-87. A first-round pick out of N.C. State in 1982, Quick is one of the best receivers to ever don an Eagles uniform.

Now calling every Eagles game from the radio booth alongside Merrill Reese, Quick has had an up-close and personal view of Nelson Agholor, who was selected with the 20th overall pick by the Eagles in 2015, 33 years after Quick was selected with that very same 20th overall choice.

Agholor has had his struggles with consistency as an Eagle, but he’s shown flashes of explosiveness that made the Eagles so high on him. Agholor has totaled 59 receptions for 648 yards and three touchdowns in his first two NFL seasons. His numbers increased across the board from Year One to Year Two, but his production still hasn’t quite matched up to his skill level.

The other big newsworthy note for the Eagles is that wide receiver Nelson Agholor is inactive. Coach Pederson said he would make his decision after the week of work, and now Agholor is offifically inactive, meaning the Eagles will stick with four wide receivers, including rookie Paul Turner, who is making his NFL debut.

Nelson Agholor jersey

Last year at this time, it would only be a matter of days until Nelson Agholor heard his named called in the 2015 NFL Draft. The wide receiver was not in Chicago when the Eagles selected him with the No. 20 pick, instead electing to be at home with his family in Tampa. It’s a decision he is still glad he made.

With a year of experience now under his belt, which included its fair share of challenges along the way, Agholor reflected on the draft process and on his rookie season.Philadelphia Eagles jersey china

On Monday afternoon, Eagles tight end Trey Burton officially signed his one-year tender offer.

The Eagles initially extended Burton a second-round tender on March 7. What this means is that another NFL team can still offer Burton a new contract, but the Eagles would have a chance to match the contract and keep Burton on the roster. If the Eagles elected not to match, the team signing Burton would have to give the Eagles a second-round pick.

Burton, originally an undrafted free agent out of Florida in 2014, made a name for himself in his first two seasons as a special teams player. In 2016, though, Burton had a larger role on offense, catching 37 passes for 327 yards and one touchdown. He’s provided excellent depth for the Eagles at tight end, but also has provided versatility, lining up as a tight end, running back and even filling in at long snapper.

Eagles #22 Asante Samuel Light Green 1960 Throwback Stitched NFL Jersey

In his first two seasons, Burton’s production on the special team units hasn’t gone unnoticed. His rookie year, he recorded a blocked punt and a blocked punt touchdown return and in 2015, he finished the season with a team-high 19 special team tackles, tied for the highest regular season total by an Eagle since 2009. During the early part of Training Camp this year, however, the Eagles’ coaching staff made it clear that they’ll be attempting to utilize Burton not only on special teams, but he should expect an increased role at tight end.Eagles #22 Asante Samuel Light Green 1960 Throwback Stitched NFL Jersey

According to Walker, he and the medical staff are still working out the details of surgery, but in the meantime, the old cliché of ‘next man up’ is in effect for the Eagles. That next man is Don Cherry, an undrafted rookie out of Villanova. After a brief stint with the Chicago Bears following April’s draft, Cherry earned a workout with the Eagles and ended up signing with the team on July 24th, just one day before the first rookie practice of Training Camp.

Now in his 10th professional season (all with the same team, a list that includes only 10 active NFL skill-position players with at least 150 games of regular season experience) Celek’s been there for the peaks, catching 19 passes for 151 yards and three touchdowns during a playoff run to the 2008 NFC Championship Game against Arizona. He’s been there for the valleys – seeing the Eagles go 4-12 in 2012, the team’s worst record since the 1998 campaign.

Carson Wentz is a very powerful star player

eagles stuff cheap

The NFL Draft is about a month away. The Eagles have made their major moves in free agency, so we have a feel for what holes are left on the roster and where the team could use an upgrade in talent. The Eagles drafted Carson Wentz second overall last year. Now, they need to provide him with some more weapons and they need to find some young talent to add to the defense. With that in mind, here is my first Eagles mock draft of the year.

There were a lot of really great things to take away from the film of the Eagles’ offensive film from Thursday night’s win over the New York Giants. The run game looked strong once again. Carson Wentz was proficient. There were a lot of great concepts from the coaches, and the offensive line looked good against a tough New York front four with the return of Lane Johnson. That was evident from the first play of the game.Nike Eagles #72 Cedric Thornton Midnight Green Team Color Men's Stitched NFL New Elite Jersey

Ron Jaworski is watching. He is always watching and taking notes and understanding what Carson Wentz is going through every step of the way. Jaworski was a quarterback in Philadelphia, of course, and he knows about the scrutiny and the spotlight and the pressure and the opinions. He has seen the Eagles’ franchise rookie quarterback play 10 NFL games and he has a very definite opinion of the progress Wentz is making.

“I think Carson has been tremendous,” Jaworski said on Saturday at the NovaCare Complex as he watched the team practice ahead of Monday night’s game against Green Bay. “Unfortunately, people just look at stats and they look at wins and losses. When I look at Carson Wentz, I look at the tape. I watch the game as a fan on gamedays, like everyone does, but the first thing I do when I get to my office each week is watch Carson Wentz on tape to see how he is developing. This is a long-term solution. This is not a one-game, one-quarter, one-play operation, so what I see is a quarterback developing and making every throw.

“Remember, this is a quarterback who missed time in Training Camp and who missed most of the preseason so he is still growing and developing within the system. I still think he is going to be one of the premier quarterbacks in this league for a long, long time.”

The Eagles are 5-5 and in need of a victory on Monday night to vault into December in a solid playoff-chase position. Wentz played in one preseason game and missed meaningful camp time recovering from a broken rib. He was named the starter eight days before the regular season opener after the Eagles dealt Sam Bradford to Minnesota, and then played three virtually flawless games as the Eagles began 3-0 and owned September. The sledding has been much more difficult for Wentz and the Eagles since then, as they’ve gone 2-5 in the seven games since. Wentz has completed 63.2 percent of his passes, with 11 touchdown passes and seven interceptions for the season.

Wide receiver was a critical need before the signings of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith. The Eagles now have a good group for 2016. As Howie Roseman pointed out at the Senior Bowl, receiver is a position where it can take a year or two for players to develop. With that in mind, the Eagles could draft a receiver now to help them in 2018 or even 2019. We have to see if there are any players they are really high on.eagles gear cheap

It’s been an all-too-common theme for the Eagles this season. Small mistakes add up and suddenly the team finds itself on the losing side of the game, just as it did again this Sunday against the Redskins.

On the Washington 14-yard line with 21 seconds to play, quarterback Carson Wentz and the offense had an opportunity to complete a comeback. They let that chance slip away.

Groh doesn’t just have success with receivers at the NFL level

The Eagles have not had a 1,000-yard receiver since Jeremy Maclin gained 1,318 yards in 2014. Groh coached three 1,000-yard seasons in Chicago – two by Alshon Jeffery (1,421 in 2013 and 1,133 in ’14) and one by Brandon Marshall (1,295 in 2013). Both Marshall and Jeffery earned Pro Bowl honors in 2013.

Groh doesn’t just have success with receivers at the NFL level. He was Alabama’s wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator from 2011-12. The Crimson Tide won the National Championship both seasons. As a true freshman in 2012, future No. 4 overall pick Amari Cooper had 59 catches for 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to beat Georgia in the SEC Championship.NFL Philadelphia Eagles Stitched Snapback Hats 013

The Chicago Bears may have only put up 14 points last Sunday against the Houston Texans, but this is an offense that can present a lot of issues from a matchup standpoint. It all starts on the outside with former second-round pick Alshon Jeffery. At 6-3, Jeffery’s ability to go up and win in contested situations makes him as tough a cover as anyone in the NFL. He isn’t the fleetest of foot, but his ability to separate at the catch point allows him to come down with grabs that most in the league can’t make.

Similar to the Eagles and Dorial Green-Beckham, the Bears like Jeffery to use his size to his advantage down the field on vertical routes. He does a really nice job attacking the football down the field (two of his four catches last week came on deep throws), and some of his best plays every year he’s been in the league have come off of shot plays or fade balls on the perimeter.

One of the newest pieces of information to come from Pederson’s media availability regards the Eagles’ 2017 schedule. The time and dates for the 2017 NFL season will be released sometime next month (potentially the week of April 17, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter), but before the schedule is officially made, the team did put in one request with the league.

The Eagles are scheduled to play both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers on the road, and instead of having to travel twice from coast to coast to the same location, the Eagles have requested to have those two games played back to back so the team can stay out west for the week.

Wentz had some great moments in 2016. He showed a strong, accurate arm. He made some terrific throws. His deep ball to Jordan Matthews in the first Redskins game was right on the money and led to a huge gain. Wentz showed the ability to create big plays. Remember the 73-yard touchdown pass to Darren Sproles in the win over Pittsburgh? That was a great play. Late in the season Wentz made several Houdini-like plays where he avoided rushers in the backfield and then either scrambled for a gain or threw a pass. There was also Wentz running for the touchdown late in the Ravens game. That was a clutch play that gave the Eagles the chance to win.

One thing that will help Wentz is having a better supporting cast. You can conservatively estimate that he would have had another five touchdown passes if receivers just held onto the ball on some plays. If the cheap Eagles jerseys can find guys who can make the easy catches and then also make a tough play or two, Wentz’s numbers will get a lot better and the Eagles will win more games. Both have to happen for him to make the Pro Bowl.

Darren Sproles has certainly made a name for himself in the NFL, but it wasn’t an easy road on the way to receiving Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors. Prior to being drafted by San Diego in 2005, he heard constant criticism about his size. Standing at only 5-6, Sproles has proved his doubters wrong time and time again.

Over the past two seasons, Sproles is the NFL’s leading punt returner, picking up 952 yards and four touchdowns, and was named to the Pro Bowl for the second consecutive season. Recently, we spoke to Sproles about his NFL journey, including the ups, downs and lessons learned throughout his 11-season playing career. Find out what the journey was like through the eyes of the veteran.
