Eagles Sign Veteran Defensive Back Leodis McKelvin

One of the laws of player personnel moves in the NFL is a coach never forgets a player who does a good job for him.  Leodis McKelvin played well for his then defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz in 2014, so the Eagles signed the eight-year veteran safety/corner today to a two-year deal.
McKelvin gives the Eagles security […]

Report: Eagles Trade Maxwell and Alonso To Dolphins

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that the Eagles have traded cornerback Byron Maxwell and linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Miami Dolphins for some undisclosed draft picks.  The Eagles won’t be able to comment on this report until Wednesday, but the details of the deal will likely come out sooner.
Maxwell was a major disappointment […]

Report: Eagles Talking Byron Maxwell Trade With The Dolphins

Ian Rappaport of NFL Network is reporting that the Eagles are in negotiations with the Miami Dolphins about a trade for the services of Birds cornerback Byron Maxwell.  The former Seattle cornerback was a big ticket signing by Chip Kelly and the Eagles prior to the 2015 season.
The Seahawks cornerback signed a six-year deal for […]

Now, Malcolm Jenkins Needs To Take More Ownership Of Eagles

I think the Eagles made a good move this afternoon by signing their Pro Bowl safety Malcolm Jenkins to a new five-year deal.  Jenkins is one of the best football players on their roster, plus he’s one of their leaders.  He doesn’t just talk, but he plays well and talks.   Words become hollow if […]

Eagles Safety Walter Thurmond Wants To Come Back, But……..

Eagles safety Walter Thurmond said he would love to return to the Birds secondary next season, but the fact that the Eagles are only $18 million dollars under the salary cap, makes his return to Philadelphia unlikely.   He said the NFL is a business and many times the business part of the game dictates […]

Malcolm Jenkins Rewarded For His Violent Plays

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week today after his tremendous game against the New England Patriots.  I like the aggressiveness that Jenkins played with in the Patriots game.  Defensive football is supposed to be played violently and Jenkins epitomized that on Sunday, when he forced the outside runs […]

Eagles Safeties Malcolm Jenkins & Walter Thurmond Are Both Playing Great Football

The Eagles have only played three games, but it looks like they’ve solved their safety problems.   I haven’t seen two safeties in the National Football League playing any better than the Eagles Malcolm Jenkins and Walter Thurmond.
They seem to have a clear understanding of what every offense they’ve faced is trying to do and they’ve been […]

Eagles Are Getting Outstanding Safety Play From Jenkins And Thurmond

The Eagles might be getting the best safety play of any team in the National Football League.  Both Malcolm Jenkins and Walter Thurmond have been playing some outstanding football against both the run and the pass.  If Jenkins had been able to pull down the two passes which were in his hands in the Atlanta […]

Byron Maxwell: “My technique was bad on a couple of those big plays.

Eagles cornerback coach Cory Undlin had stressed throughout the OTA’s and training camp that the Eagles cornerbacks were going to get their hands on opposing wide receivers, jam them at the snap of the ball and delay their release off of the line of scrimmage.  It was much like what Byron Maxwell had done in […]

Eagles Working Eric Rowe Out At Safety

There are plenty of things to get excited about regarding the Eagles, but the secondary isn’t one of them.  I like the idea of Byron Maxwell matching up against Julio Jones, but I’m not interested in seeing rookie Eric Rowe getting matched up with anybody one-on-one, right now.  The Birds made it clear that they […]
