Linebacker Connor Barwin tweeted a picture of him signing a new contract

Just hours before free agency gets underway on Thursday, the Eagles released a player who epitomized what every team wants to find on the open market in defensive end Connor Barwin.

“Connor Barwin is a tremendous teammate, player, and an even better person,” Howie Roseman said. “He represented the Philadelphia Eagles with class and integrity for the past four seasons and we appreciate his efforts both on and off the field.

Defensive end Connor Barwin and his Make The World Better (mtwb) Foundation raised $200,000 at their 3rd annual benefit concert at Union Transfer on Friday. All proceeds from the sold-out concert, which were matched by Barwin, will be donated directly to the foundation’s next major park renovation project in Philadelphia, Waterloo Playground (2501 Waterloo Street). The site is located in the West Kensington section of Philadelphia. Over the past three years, Barwin and mtwb have raised more than $685,000 for park renovations in the City of Philadelphia through their annual benefit concert.

Linebacker Connor Barwin knows this well, and on Wednesday he will board the team flight and head back to his hometown of Detroit for the Thanksgiving showdown with the Detroit Lions.

However, that didn’t hold the Eagle back from sharing his story and allowing the cameras into his home. Finding such success as a football player means Barwin has had his fair share of experiences with the media, but nothing to this magnitude.

Earlier this week, linebacker Connor Barwin tweeted a picture of him signing a new contract. On Friday morning, Barwin was a guest on the 94 WIP Morning Show. He explained that the Philadelphia Eagles jerseys approached him about the contract restructure and that there was no negotiation. The Pro Bowl and second-team All-Pro linebacker hopes that this will help allow him to finish his career with the team.

I’ve been in Arizona for just a couple of days and it’s been a great experience. The best part is getting to know guys that you don’t know from other teams, and you get a chance to meet them and get to know them as people, and then seeing guys that you do know and have played with in the past and you have some time to reminisce and enjoy that personal time. This is my first experience and it’s really cool for me.

That’s the general reaction from rookies: It’s a blur. From the instant they arrive in Philadelphia and are picked up at the airport and brought to the NovaCare Complex, the pace is fast and the depth of information needed, at every level, is furious.

“I spent most of my season in the playbook or at the Complex working,” guard Isaac Seumalo said. “It’s all you do. It’s a business. This is my job. I need to be on top of everything to have the kind of success I want to have.”

The 2017 Rookie Class meets at the NovaCare Complex on Thursday to go through a variety of essential steps. They must be fitted for their practice helmets, equipment, and jerseys. They meet with their position coaches and are given scripts – scheme introduction – that they will need to know for the practices Friday through Sunday. Head coach Doug Pederson will address the group as one. Dinner is served. Vans to the hotel are running at exact times.

The Eagles could use more speed and big-play ability in the backfield

eagles salute to service gear

The Eagles moved up seven spots in the fourth round to select another offensive playmaker on Saturday, drafting San Diego State running back Donnel Pumphrey with the 132nd-overall pick.

A native of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, McCoy grew up rooting for the Eagles. He attended the University of Pittsburgh, where he rushed for 2,816 yards and 35 touchdowns in two seasons. After foregoing his final two seasons of college eligibility, he was selected by Philadelphia in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Once in the pros, he quickly established himself as one of the best running backs in the league, rushing for a franchise-record 6,792 yards and 44 touchdowns in six seasons.

The game tape backs up the numbers. Mack shows lateral explosion and long speed. He has good vision, which is critical for a running back. All the physical talent in the world doesn’t help you if you can’t find the hole. He has excellent burst. Mack is elusive, with the ability to make defenders miss in traffic or out in space. He isn’t a power runner, but will go through some arm tackles. The downside with Mack is that he loves big plays and will run himself into some losses because of that. LeSean McCoy did the same thing when he was an Eagle. When Mack stays north-south, he is a very good runner.

The Eagles could use more speed and big-play ability in the backfield. The 5-11, 213-pound Mack would provide both. The Eagles were able to move the chains in 2016. Now, they want to add chunk plays. Mack had runs of 49, 52, 56, 60, 65, and 85 yards last year. The Eagles would love to put a weapon like that on the field beside Wentz every week.

LeSean McCoy vividly remembers the cheers from the Philadelphia faithful, he remembers the tight-knit bond he established with his teammates and he remembers with pride the success he had during his six years as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. Nike Eagles #43 Darren Sproles Midnight Green Team Color Youth Stitched NFL New Elite Jersey

A lot was made heading into this week’s meeting between the Eagles and Bills about the return of running back LeSean McCoy to Philadelphia. A native of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, McCoy grew up rooting for the Eagles, and after two stellar seasons at the University of Pittsburgh he was selected by Philadelphia in the second round of the 2009 Draft. Once in the pros, he quickly established himself as one of the best running backs in the league, rushing for a franchise-record 6,792 yards and 44 touchdowns in six seasons.

McCoy expects a mixed response when he returns to Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, but he’s looking to put the past behind him and focus solely on the task at hand. He says it’s a big game for him, but not because of any of the perceived theater surrounding the contest. His Bills (6-6) are currently one game out of an AFC Wild Card spot, and the Eagles (5-7) are currently tied for the division lead in the NFC East with four games left to play.

To move up, the Eagles traded picks 139 (fourth round) and 230 (seventh round) to the Minnesota Vikings.

The Eagles satisfied some very important need positions in last weekend’s draft, including defensive end and cornerback, and they may or may not have done the same with the fourth-round selection of Pumphrey, the record-setting running back from San Diego State whose incredible production, 6,405 rushing yards, belies his 5-9, 180-pound (dripping wet) frame.

Running back didn’t get addressed as expected. The Eagles didn’t add a star runner to come in and fight for the starting job. They drafted Donnel Pumphrey in the fourth round. Pumphrey is a talented runner, but he is also a weapon as a receiver. He can be devastating on screens, with his ability to Philadelphia Eagles jersey authentic hide behind blockers and then make quick cuts in the open field. Pumphrey can also line up in the slot and get open like a receiver would. Beyond that, the play is just starting when he gets the ball in his hands. His 4.48 speed makes him a challenge for defensive backs and just kills linebackers.

Alright, so this isn’t the traditional ‘running back vs linebacker’ or ‘running back vs safety’ matchup that I typically save for this piece, but you should know about the two running backs facing off in this Mountain West Conference Title Game. San Diego State’s Donnel Pumphrey is downright tiny at 5’8, 170 pounds, but he plays with a real edge out of the backfield as both a runner and a receiver. Pumphrey has good vision, is willing to work in between the tackles, and has consistently stepped up his game against the best teams on the schedule throughout his career. That being said, Pumphrey’s been in a bit of a slump lately, failing to reach 100 yards rushing in consecutive games for the first time since September of 2015, a streak that started when the Aztecs faced Wyoming a couple of weeks ago in a last-second loss.

The Eagles started the 2017 NFL Draft with eight picks and made that exact amount

The Eagles doubled up on cornerbacks on Day Two of the 2017 NFL Draft as they followed up their second-round pick of Sidney Jones by selecting West Virginia’s Rasul Douglas with the 99th-overall pick.

After adding Derek Barnett to the front seven on Thursday, the Eagles added their second straight defensive piece on Friday by selecting Washington cornerback Sidney Jones with the 43rd-overall pick.

Jones was considered by many as the top cornerback in this year’s ultra-talented draft class at that position, until he suffered an Achilles injury during his pro day at the University of Washington. Listed at 6-0, 186 pounds, Jones has ideal size for a corner. At the NFL Combine, Jones ran a 4.47 40-yard dash. In three seasons with the Huskies, Jones totaled nine interceptions, running one back for a touchdown in 2015. He earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors in both 2015 and 2016.

The way Anthony Patch vividly remembers it, Sidney Jones was on the last drill of a March 11 Pro Day workout at the University of Washington that was, Patch says now, “such a good workout” and everything changed in an instant. Jones crumbled to the ground turning up the field coming out of a backpedal and everyone knew it was awful: a torn Achilles tendon and a football career suddenly turned upside down.

In the end, the Eagles started the 2017 NFL Draft with eight picks and made that exact amount, using three of the selections for the offense and five for the defense. One of the players, cornerback Sidney Jones, may not play a snap in his rookie season. Others, including defensive end Derek Barnett and cornerback Rasul Douglas, have chances to make an instant impact.

A tall, physical corner at 6-2, 209 pounds, Douglas became a full-time starter for the Mountaineers in 2016, a season in which he recorded an incredible eight interceptions, tied for the most of any FBS player in the nation. At the NFL Combine, Douglas ran a 4.59 40-yard dash and displayed a 120-inch broad jump.

Douglas’ physical, confident style of play fits perfectly into what defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is looking for at the position. The Eagles surely hope that Douglas and Jones can develop together into a dynamic duo in the secondary for years to come.

The Eagles drafted Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas in the second and third rounds, respectively. Jones has to get healthy before he can play, but he has the potential to be a dynamic cover guy. Douglas will have a shot to play right away. He’ll have to earn it, but the depth chart will be pretty open at cornerback. Those jobs won’t be given out based on last year. They will be earned this spring and summer.

Douglas’ physical, confident style of play fits perfectly into what defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is looking for at the position. The Eagles surely hope that Douglas and Jones can develop together into a dynamic duo in the secondary for years to come.

Many coaches and players will tell you that you can’t teach ‘ballskills’; Rasul Douglas has ballskills. This is textbook.

After addressing the defense with their first three picks of 2017, the Eagles added an offensive player with their first pick of Round Four by selecting North Carolina wide receiver Mack Hollins with 118th-overall pick.

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.

Barnett ranked 14th in the 2017 NFL draft

Wentz was joined by quarterback Deshaun Watson, who guided the Clemson Tigers to the National Championship in January and is a potential first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. The two appeared on behalf of JCPenney, as the store fitted the young men for suits of their own and provided gift cards.

It was a fun afternoon, and as always I learned a lot from Quick, and we started the session with a look at Williams against Pittsburgh, Clemson’s lone loss of the season. In a high-scoring game, Williams had a career day, catching 15 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown. There were a lot of opportunities for us to evaluate Williams with the ball going his way, but it only took one snap, where he wasn’t even targeted, for him to draw praise from the Eagles Hall of Famer.

“See this release? This is the first play and I like him already,” Quick said. It was first-and-10, and quarterback Deshaun Watson goes to the other side of the field with this ball, but Williams is lined up on the left facing a press corner. He runs a fade and is able to get on top of the corner efficiently.

“There’s no wasted motion. He’s not bailing to the outside. He’s going right at the corner’s shoulder. He’s not wasting any time getting upfield, I like that,” Quick continued. “If this play comes to him he’s in great position just off the ball to go up and make a play.” It was Williams’ release that caught Quick’s eye again just four plays later.

This is a quarterback class riddled with question marks. Mitch Trubisky has only started 13 games. DeShone Kizer didn’t win enough. Patrick Mahomes struggles to play within structure. Nate Peterman doesn’t have tools that blow you away. Watson’s play was a bit uneven this year and, like Peterman, there’s nothing physically about his skill set that will wow you. I believe he has the potential to be a starting quarterback in the NFL down the line because of what he brings on and off the field.

Alabama’s success in the semifinal game against Michigan State centered on making that team one-dimensional. Running back Larry Scott, the hero of the Big Ten Championship Game for Michigan State, was held to just 8 yards on the ground, as the Spartans averaged just 1.1 yards per carry on the day. This Clemson attack, however, is completely different than what the Tide saw against Michigan State, and a lot of that has to do with the Heisman finalist Deshaun Watson.

The true sophomore quarterback ran for over 1,000 yards this year, averaging 5.5 yards per carry. The Tigers, much like the Ohio State team that beat Alabama a year ago in the playoffs, have an offense focused on speed, tempo and deception. The zone-read element will be a huge factor in this game, and whether it’s Watson carrying the ball or running back Wayne Gallman, or any of the receivers that you’ll see used on jet-sweep action throughout the night, the Alabama front seven’s eye discipline will be put to the test.

In projecting an All-Rookie Team for NFL.com, Brooks included defensive end Derek Barnett on his squad.

The No. 14 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Barnett set a new school record at Tennessee with 33 career sacks, surpassing the previous record of 32 set by Pro Football Hall of Famer and Eagles legend Reggie White. Barnett was the first true freshman to start along the defensive line in school history. He earned first-team All-America honors from the Associated Press as a junior in 2016 after registering a career-high 13.0 sacks with 56.0 tackles, 19.0 tackles for loss, 16 hurries, and 2 forced fumbles.

With the No. 14 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles jersey selected former Tennessee defensive end Derek Barnett on Thursday night.

The 6-3, 259-pound Barnett was a three-year starter at right defensive end. In fact, Barnett was the first true freshman in Volunteers history to start along the defensive line.

After adding Derek Barnett to the front seven on Thursday, the Eagles added their second straight defensive piece on Friday by selecting Washington cornerback Sidney Jones with the 43rd-overall pick.
