Let’s get to Philly Eagles Left …
2022 NFL Power Rankings has Bills, Chargers, Rams Leading Pack; Pats, cards, Steelers resign – FMIA
9. Philadelphia (9-9, lost to Tampa Bay in the wild card round). I see the Eagles as the best team in the east. I see Jalen Hurts doing enough to be a C-Plus quarterback with the addition of AJ Brown. I see the receiving corps of Brown, DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins and Zach Pascal being good enough to make the Eagles a top 10 offensive player. I see Haason Redick returning to the scene of his prime (he played college football at Temple) and James Bradberry cementing a corner depth chart to make this the best defense in the NFC East. What I like about what the Eagles have done this offseason is this: They created a team with a legitimate shot at a win, with a legitimate offense to make a judgment on Jalen Hurts as a future quarterback. GM Howie Roseman pulled it off while still retaining enough pieces going forward to address the quarterback position should he need it in 2023. Roseman has three picks in the first two rounds of next year and three picks in the first two rounds of 2024. He’s done his job: He’s built a team for 2022, and he’s built a team that can turn around in 2023 if need be can perform. The Eagles are better on both sides of the ball than they were in January, and that was capped by Bradberry’s signing. In the end, they have a chance to win a game in January. The biggest signing was Brown and I think he can make the difference in two or three games. “AJ was a DNA match with us,” Roseman told me after the trade. “It was exactly what we were looking for in a recipient and it fit our culture.” Good addition.
Eye on the Enemy #94: Jim Sannes evaluates the Eagles’ offseason and ranks the Birds – BGN Radio
John Stolnis spoke to Fanduel Sports’ Jim Sannes. Jim evaluated the Eagles’ offseason and talked about where he currently ranks them in the NFC East and the NFC overall. The guys also did a Snake Draft to select players from the NFC East for fantasy purposes. Also, John offered his two cents for signing James Bradberry.
NFC Hierarchy/Obituary: Post Draft Edition – PhillyVoice
6) Eagles (9-8 in 2021): The Eagles may have the best offensive line in the NFL. They have the best reception group they’ve had in a long time. They had the #1 rushing attack in the NFL last season. Defense seems to have been improved on all three levels. They’re better than Dallas on offense on paper. They’re also better on paper than Dallas on defense. Therefore, they are better on paper than Dallas overall. So why are you here behind Dallas? Well, let’s face it. Dallas has had her number since the Eagles won the Super Bowl. Let’s see it on the field first.
Philadelphia Eagles’ chances improve after James Bradberry and AJ Brown signings – ESPN
Davis is expected to be the anchor Gannon needs in the middle of his defense to select multiple fronts, while White and Dean – the reigning Butkus Award winner – are expected to improve the game of a linebacker group caught in the had a lot of problems last season. The 2011 Dream Team roster serves as a constant reminder in Philly that winning in the offseason doesn’t always translate to success. Relevant questions remain, including whether the safety group is good enough and whether Hurts will improve his game in his second year as a full-time starter to make the team a legitimate contender. But after what Eagles Brass openly called a transition year, it’s clear they pushed the build to Overdrive. “We’re just adding really big chunks to that,” Edwards said. “Now it’s about everyone somehow finding their role and fitting in.”
The 10 Most Influential NFL Trades of the 2022 Offseason – NFL.com
7) AJ Brown – There’s usually only one good reason to trade for an experienced wide receiver looking for a massive payday: to give a young quarterback a weapon that can improve his game in a hurry. We’ve seen this in Arizona (with DeAndre Hopkins and Kyler Murray) and Buffalo (Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen), and it’s certainly a major factor in the Eagles’ decision to take over Brown and leave him at $100 for four years to reward million contract. It’s fair to say that Brown hasn’t generated staggering stats in his first three NFL seasons, never averaging more than 70 receptions or 1,100 yards in a year. However, he fits well into an offensive line by the Eagles, which already has plenty of other weapons for third-year quarterback Jalen Hurts, a group that includes wide receivers DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins, and tight end Dallas Goedert. Put Brown with these guys and he’ll come up with numbers. He’ll also block, which is just as important for an offense that just led the league in rushing and will still have plenty of ground and pound.
Should we compare the Eagles’ 2022 offseason to the Dream Team? – NBCSP
Compare that to this group. AJ Brown has been very productive and consistent in all of his three NFL seasons. Haason Reddick has compiled consecutive double-digit sack seasons. Kyzir White has gotten better with every year he’s been in the league. James Bradberry is one of only two corners in the NFL with at least 15 interceptions and 80 pass deflections in the past six years. And Jordan Davis, Cam Jurgens and Nakobe Dean are promising rookies just starting out. Davis and Jürgens are 22, Dean is 21. No comparison. none. The Dream Team included six boys who were already in their thirties. The oldest man in this group is Bradberry, who is 28 years old and only signed for a year. Against this collection of players from 2011 stood another very important thing. The lockout.
Just the Beginning: Eagles Autism Challenge is a Unifying Force for Change – PE.com
When Jeffrey Lurie became chairman and CEO of the Philadelphia Eagles more than 25 years ago, he turned his passion into a goal and eventually the Eagles Autism Foundation was born. The Eagles Autism Foundation’s premier fundraising event, the Eagles Autism Challenge presented by Lincoln Financial Group, took on a life of its own five years ago. As thousands turned out to ride, run and walk at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday morning, the Eagles Autism Challenge has raised more than $16 million in donations since 2018, “the fabric of who we are,” said Ryan Hammond, Executive Director of the Eagles Autism Foundation. “These families and our partners coming out and supporting us and standing side by side, that’s really a united front.” This is a cause that unites the city of Philadelphia as a whole. However, Jordan Mailata is not surprised.
Michael Vick says he won’t play relentlessly in the Fan Controlled Football League – CBS Sports
Michael Vick isn’t coming out of retirement after all. The former NFL quarterback – best known for his tenures with the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles – was due to join the startup league Fan Controlled Football, according to a report by Reuters, but the 41-year-old tweeted on Sunday that he would remain retired . “I hung her up in 2015 never to come back,” Vick said on Twitter. “We had a great time and achieved so much. I’m saying that to say they’re hanging in there and I won’t be coming out of retirement.”
NFL owners fed up with Dan Snyder problem and counting the votes – Hogs Haven
It’s been a bit quiet on the Dan Snyder news front lately. The NFL investigation into Mary Jo White’s recent sexual harassment/misconduct allegations has not reported any new information since it was revealed the NFL was again taking over an investigation that Snyder himself was attempting to start. White has been tasked with crisis management on two other issues the NFL has since sought to discredit and bury, so this year she’s had her hands full with cover-ups. Last night’s report came from USA Today’s Jarrett Bell, who spoke to 4 NFL owners to check the temperature of the Dan Snyder issue, which despite his denial and the NFL’s protection doesn’t seem to be going away. The NFL’s Spring League meetings are this week, and Snyder’s disastrous ownership of Washington’s franchise has at least a few other owners occupied. A co-owner expressed the frustration felt by other owners. “There is growing frustration with the situation in Washington and not with a problem but with how much smoke there is. I think everyone will get tired of it.”
Jadeveon Clowney re-signs with Cleveland Browns, not Dallas Cowboys – Blogging The Boys
One could argue that the Dallas Cowboys have a need on the defensive end. Quite literally, the team has made several moves this offseason. The Cowboys brought back Dorance Armstrong, brought in Dante Fowler, and then drafted Sam Williams with their second-round pick. Something has definitely happened on the spot. Of course, these movements were made in part because of a movement that didn’t happen; Randy Gregory goes to the Denver Broncos at the last second. We know the Cowboys were willing to give Gregory $14 million a year, but things fizzled out by the eleventh hour. You can never have enough pass rushers, so despite the moves Dallas has made this offseason, many wondered if the team would try to bring it in as another defensive end. Her alleged interest in Jason Pierre-Paul had seemingly cooled, but another big name has entered the market. No more.
