Here is a position-by-position breakdown of who I think will make the team and who won’t: Quarterback In: Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel, Carson Wentz Out: McLeod Bethel-Thompson This is the same at last time and it’ll always remain this way, … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster prediction: Version 1.0

Predicting who is going to make an NFL team’s roster in May is stupid right? Of course it is. But that doesn’t mean it’s not fun. A whole lot is going to change between now and September when the Eagles take the field against the Browns in Week 1, but here’s my initial roster prediction based on what I think will happen: Quarterback In: Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel, Carson Wentz Out: McLeod Bethel-Thompson Even though … Continue reading

An early prediction of the Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster

I will break it down by position and list each guy who makes it and who is left out, as well as explanations for each position group. Here’s what I came up with: Quarterback Keep: Sam … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles minicamp recap: What we learned

Now that the Eagles have finished their three-day minicamp, they get six weeks off before training camp starts on August 2. It wasn’t exactly a grueling trio of practices, but it was enough to get a good look at what some of the players can bring to the table. Since the practices were without pads, it’s obviously still limited what can be seen, but many players received positive endorsements from both Chip Kelly and teammates, … Continue reading

Links of the week: Updates on prospects the Eagles are looking at, their RFAs and more

The two things heating up are draft discussions and the relationship of former Eagles RB LeSean McCoy. While there is a large group of players the Eagles could end up drafting, it’s impossible to completely rule out the possibility that they end up trading up for Marcus Mariota. Some sources say they’ll definitely try while some say there’s no way it’ll happen. On the other hot topic, there are now rumors that McCoy threatened to … Continue reading

Eagles: Assessing the current state of the safety position

A whole lot can change from now until the beginning of the regular season, but it’s no doubt that the group of safeties that the Eagles have on the current roster is not a great one. According to the Eagles official roster, they have six safeties right now: Malcolm Jenkins, Earl Wolff, Chris Maragos, Chris Prosinski, Jerome Couplin and Ed Reynolds. They also have guys like Nolan Carroll and Jaylen Watkins who, hypothetically, could be moved … Continue reading

Links of the week: Eagles sign Miles Austin, restructure DeMeco Ryans, and updates on Boykin, Huff and Matthews

After what seemed like an eternity between transactions, the Eagles made their first signing in a while by picking up veteran WR Miles Austin. They also restructured the contract of DeMeco Ryans, suggesting he’s here to stay for this year. The draft nears closer and closer and the Eagles are beginning to target certain players or do private workouts, but this update will focus on the players actually on the team. Here are some links … Continue reading

Links of the week: status updates on Ryans, Boykin, Bradford, and more

The Eagles haven’t made an actual roster move in over a week, so now it’s time to take a look at who would be starters and who is left as backups. Clearly, their roster isn’t complete since they still have the draft in about a month, but it doesn’t mean we can’t take a look at some updates of some current players on the roster and what their status is at the moment. Also, here’s … Continue reading
