Eagles Sign Nolan Carroll To One-Year Deal

In what I believe to be a good move, the Eagles signed cornerback Nolan Carroll to a one-year deal on Tuesday.  The contract will pay him $2.36 million in 2016.  This deal was a way of the Eagles having another proven corner on the roster and Carroll getting the chance to show the Eagles and […]

Rodney McLeod Gets Endorsements From Current and Former Eagles

I think the Eagles made an excellent move by signing free agent safety Rodney McLeod.  I’m confident that he’s going to come in here and do a good job of working with Malcolm Jenkins.  All I had to do was listen to former Eagles offensive tackle Barrett Brooks on Comcast’s morning show “Breakfast On Broad”.
Brooks […]

Eagles Sign Rams Safety Rodney McLeod To A Five-Year Deal

Eagles have agreed to a five-year deal with young Rams safety Rodney McLeod.  He’ll make $37 million dollars over those five years with $17 million dollars of it being guaranteed.   McLeod was an unknown who came out of the University of Virginia as a free agent in 2012.
He’s established himself as a hitter and […]

The Maxwell/Alonso Deal Is Up and Down From Minute To Minute

Eagles GM Howie Roseman had made a brilliant move by trading Byron Maxwell along with his awful contract and the disappointing linebacker Kiko Alonso to Miami Dolphins for some draft picks.  Unfortunately it looks like all the work may be undone because of a shoulder injury Maxwell suffered during the 2015 season.’s Les Bowen is […]

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 […]
