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 , 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.

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 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.

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.

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 , 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.
