Let’s get to Philadelphia Eagles links …
Brandon Graham seeks to stay with Eagles’ recovery: “I don’t want to go anywhere” – The Athletic
Graham thought the Wenz trade was “good for both sides.” He complained about the sudden end of the quarterback coaching combination that helped Philadelphia win the Super Bowl, but Graham said he had been through a lot in the league and was not often surprised. Graham has played for four senior coaches (including intermediate), five defensive coordinators (including intermediate) and seven coaches (including intermediate), so he is well acquainted with the NFL̵
Weapon X Mailbag: How far would you trade in the first round? – BGN
I get the wisdom to trade down. For an Eagles team that lacks talent so badly, the more lottery tickets and darts, the better, right? However, birds need a star. Legitimate capital-S Star. The higher they choose, the less likely they are that Howie Roseman will improve the choice completely. Philly was kicked out both locally and nationally for their tank fest in week 17 against Washington to ensure he took the top six. Will they really trade once they endure this? Just draw Ja’Marr Chase. Just draft a DeVonta Smith project. Just draw Jaylan Waddle. Just draft a Penei Sewell project. Remove the variables and luck and take the person you want without being cute about it. Roseman has Danny Eing’s ability to say, “The man we wanted went right before us!” Don’t give me that. You are high. Take the spike.

Three free agents that make sense to the Eagles, version 3.0 – PhillyVoice
When the Eagles returned in 2020, it was as if someone was pulling invisible fishing wire from the sideline to the sideline of the 20-yard line, and Boston Scott would stumble upon each return. When he returned to the punt, while Jalan Rieger did return to the TD, it was an adventure for him when he put the punt. Plus, since the roster is current, it’s probably number 1 on the team, so it’s worth arguing about whether to use it at all on special teams. Otherwise, Greg Ward was (a) completely non-threatening when he struck, and (b) left too many blows to hit the ground. One way for the Eagles to help their attack this season is to give them a better starting position and maybe even a big game here or there. Agnu would help with both the return of a blow and the return of a blow.
Not a fire sale – Iggles Blitz
Miraculously, the Eagles will not be good in 2021. Luri needs them to be competitive and / or fun. If fans stop watching and stop being interested, that’s a problem. That’s why the Eagles have to make sure they keep some good veterans around. I hope BG will be able to end his career as an Eagle. He’s been fun to watch over the years and it would be cool if he only played for one team. We don’t know if this will happen, but we do know that he will remain Eagle for at least another year. It would also be great if Graham managed to hold out while the Eagles could return to the playoffs. You would like to see a person like him come out in a winning season. This does not mean winning the Super Bowl, but simply returning to the playoffs. After the misery of 2020 and the likely disappointment of 2021, just a return to the right side of the .500 will feel quite incredible.
Renner: The best draft decision for every NFL team in the last 5 years – PFF
Philadelphia Eagles: The Great Play for Carson Wentz. Although they didn’t technically win the Super Bowl with Wentz, it’s hard to imagine that they won everything without him bringing them to 10-2 before coming down with a knee injury. This season, he earned 84.9 career high scores before breaking the ACL. Although he has not been the same since then, Wentz is still betting on the Eagles for a third and what could be the first next year. The defender’s value is undefeated.
Kyle Rudolph thinks the Vikings win the Super Bowl in 2017 with Sam Bradford – NBCSP
Rudolph, 31, wrote a nice farewell letter to Minnesota in The Players’ Tribune. This is a nice gesture. Rudolph thanks the team, his teammates, the fans. This is careful, but not uncommon. But there is one part in particular that will stand out for Eagles fans … when Rudolph mentions Sam Bradford: “Guys like Sam Bradford, who never got the credit he deserved, but struggled with injury for two years to try to overcome us. (I sincerely believe that we win the Super Bowl in 2017 if Sam is healthy. Such an incredibly talented dude, an unreal passer-by when his body was right.) “Super Bowl, you say? This can get a side view from Eagles fans for two reasons.
The giants release Golden Tate and David Mayo – Big Blue View
The first big off-season dominoes fell for the New York Giants as the team released Golden Tate and David Mayo, according to Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport. The moves make a lot of sense for the Giants, who had less than $ 1 million in space before the releases. The team will save approximately $ 8.4 million by switching from the 32-year-old wide receiver and the 27-year-old backback. Following the signing of a four-year, $ 37.5 million contract in 2019, Tate’s tenure with the Giants began in earnest when he was suspended for four NFL games for violating his banned substance policy. From there, the former Super Bowl champion only scored 1,064 yards and 8 touchdowns in two seasons with the team and started just four games in 2020. Tate was abandoned for a road match in the 2020 season after his antics on the pitch angered coach Joe Judge.
Christian Hackenberg as a coach at a high school in New Jersey What will be his role? – NJ.com
Hackenberg was with the Eagles during the preseason in 2018, but did not make his last list. He spent most of the 2018 season on the Bengals coaching team, but was released in early November of that year and has not been on an NFL team since. In 2019, Hackenberg played for the Memphis Express in the American Football Alliance. But Hackenberg struggled and the league collapsed after one season.
Report: Detroit Lions sign WR Tyrell Williams for a one-year deal – Pride Of Detroit
The Detroit Lions started with a free choice on Wednesday. The team has reportedly agreed with former Las Vegas Raiders successor Tyrell Williams, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. According to the report, the deal is worth “up to $ 6.2 million”, but there are no details on the structure of the contract yet. [BLG Note: So much for a Nick Sirianni reunion.]
Futures: Alabama CB Patrick Surtain II – Football outsiders
In any case, Surtain’s ability as a professional will depend on how well he plays at medium speed. In the SEC, he did this exceptionally, hardly ever being defeated over the top while scoring zero penalties thanks to his phenomenal technique and positioning. Cornerback without makeup speed has to be among the league’s elite when it comes to winning before that speed comes into question, and Surtain will have to prove he’s in that group. As for Surtain’s place in this class of draft, there is no reason for him to fall outside the top 20. Surtain is not a special prospect, but he has already outpaced the development curve and was created to physically cope with the NFL from the outside. In a cornerback class that looks a little smaller after the first few boys, many teams that need help in the middle of the first round have to watch Surtain.
The Ravens to propose a revolutionary spot and choose overtime procedure – PFT
For many sources who know the situation, the crows will offer a pair of overtime procedures based on the concept of “notice and choose”. It works like this: one team chooses the place of the ball to start overtime, and the other team chooses whether to play in attack or defense. If one team chooses, for example, its own 20-yard foul line, then the opponent will choose whether to play a foul from their own 20 or play defensively, with the other team having the ball alone 20. This would significantly reduce the impact of tossing the coin. ; under this proposal, tossing coins will only be used to entitle the team that wins the toss to choose the place of the ball (along with the end zone to be defended) or to choose an attack or defense.
Terry Bradshaw once pretended to be “Tom Brady” to have surgery – SB Nation
One of the strangest stories in sports history came thanks to a Twitter account @QuirkyResearch, which revealed an old story about Terry Bradshaw with an incredible twist, using the name “Thomas Brady” to get a secret operation. In 1983, at the height of his NFL star, Bradshaw needed surgery on his throwing arm. We don’t know if the injury lasted from the season or was caused by working on his farm during the off-season – but the organization later said in a statement that it was caused by “minor wear and tear”. The Steelers’ quarterback didn’t want the attention to be checked under his real name. The hospital was in Shreveport, Louisiana, and naturally, as a local legend, he didn’t want to hear that the four-time Super Bowl and NFL MVP champion was registering.
