Eagles News: Shane Steichen will continue to call plays

Let’s get to Philly Eagles Left …

Steichen calls for offensive play again in 2022 – NBCSP
Jalen Hurts has spoken about how much he will benefit from having the same offensive system and playing callers for the second straight season in 2022. It was made clear to us on Friday that these jobs fall on two different people. While we knew the Eagles’ offensive coordinator Shane Steichen was the guy who called plays in hurts last year, and we knew Steichen took on more responsibility for calling games as the year progressed, head coach Nick Sirianni didn’t say until the end December that they called plays “together” in 2021. Turns out Steichen really was the offensive player for the second half. And he will be the offensive game caller going forward. “I think last year we were a new staff and we evolved as an offense,” Steichen told OTAs on Friday. “As the season progressed, I eventually took on more of the game that called mid-season. On the other hand, Nick has shaped everything we do. So he put a stamp in the meeting rooms on everything we do, every game that’s on that call list, he makes sure it’s warranted, boom, and we’re good to go. “So I’m going to call the plays next year, and we’re going to take it from there.”

Eagles OTA Practice Notes: Encouraging Signs by Jalen Hurts – BGN
Well, it wasn’t a perfect day for hurts. He was almost picked by Slay for a game that required Brown to play defensively and broke it up. It seemed like the timing was wrong there. Hurts also brought down an open Brown on the right touchline. Hurts’ most encouraging throw may not have been one of his deep tries. He has had some successes in this area. In contrast, Hurts hasn’t performed well when it comes to throwing across the center of the field, particularly in the short and midranges. Hurts may have shown some progress in that regard, threading a tight coverage window to meet a crossing Jack Stoll in the step over the middle. Good stuff.

Eagles Rookie NFL Player Comparisons: Kyron Johnson – PhillyVoice
In 2021, Johnson had 63 tackles (8.5 for losses), 6.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles. He also had 17 career special teams tackles. He’s a tenacious player who will likely contribute to special teams right away and might even get an opportunity as a situational pass rusher here and there. The player he reminds me of is Dennis Gardeck, a similarly small 6’0, 232-pound try-hard-pass-rusher/core special-teamer with the Cardinals who also plays the game with enthusiasm.

Nine teams will pick up Cap Space – Over The Cap on June 2nd
Eagles – $5.3 million. Philadelphia had called Fletcher Cox a cut after June 1 at the start of the new league year, although they re-signed him this year. Cox’s previous contract counted for a $14.9 million salary cap, but that should reduce to about $9.6 million. Cox’s contract included an option bonus, and there’s a chance it might stay in place, which would reduce the savings by $3.2 million, but don’t worry, that would just add to the Eagles’ 2023 salary cap. Cox is expected to exceed $15 million for the 2023 salary cap.

Barnwell: Giants had one of the best offseasons in the NFL – Big Blue View
Overall, Schoen and the Giants have accomplished a lot given the limited resources available. Being able to get away with fundamental pieces on both sides of the ditch while making strides toward long-term Cap health is a step in the right direction.

Cowboys throw spaghetti at the wall hoping for Tyron Smith’s spare sticks – Blogging The Boys
Tyler Smith played 24 career games with 13 starts at left tackle in two years in Tulsa before being drafted in the first round (24th overall) of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys. The 21-year-old, 6ft 6in, 332lb offensive lineman is likely the favorite to replace Tyron Smith at the moment. In the meantime, however, he will likely replace Connor Williams as a starter at left guard. Depending on how he fares as a rookie at LG and how the other young tackles play, he could either remain the starter at LG or get an opportunity to step out to LT in the not too distant future.
