Eagles Shopping Dion Lewis
It’s no surprise to hear that the Eagles are willing to trade backup running back Dion Lewis.
Lewis has shown some explosiveness, and looks like he can be a decent complimentary back in this league, but he fell out of favor with the coaching staff last season, losing his spot on the depth [...]
Last month, the Eagles released former starting defensive tackles Cullen Jenkins and Mike Patterson. With the team transitioning to a 3-4 defense, Chip Kelly’s coaching staff saw no further use for either player.
Jenkins was quickly picked up by the New York Giants, and now they may be looking to add Patterson’s services as well. The [...]
The Eagles have just announced the release of their longest-tenured player. Veteran defensive tackle Mike Patterson was let go. He was selected by the Eagles in the first round of the 2005 draft. He has played his entire eight-year career here as a Bird.
Patterson just released the following statement via the team:
“I want to thank [...]
One of the shortcomings of playing on Thursday is that you don’t have enough time to recover from injuries suffered on Sunday. The Birds are likely to have five players miss the Thursday night game against Cincinnati. It’s not that big of a deal because the most important aspect of these games is the participation [...]
There’s a lot of talk about the release of Jason Babin sending a message. Why would you wait until the team is 3-8 to send a message? The season is over and all the players are playing for is their individual careers and futures. It’s every man for himself now with the Eagles.

The Eagles have decided to activate defensive tackle Mike Patterson and there’s a good chance safety Nate Allen will miss the upcoming New Orleans game.

The Eagles made the necessary moves today to get down to 75 players on their roster.
Pro Bowl offensive tackle Jason Peters, who tore his Achilles tendon twice, was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list. Peters isn’t expected to return to action this season.
Starting defensive tackle Mike Patterson, who is still recovering from off season brain [...]
According to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, Eagles defensive tackle Michael Patterson won’t be ready to play when the season starts on September 9th against the Cleveland Browns. His doctor doesn’t believe that the area of the brain surgery has recovered enough for him to play.
I wonder if Patterson will ever play again, because it’s hard to believe [...]
1. Kafka Down, Foles and Edwards Up
In the coming weeks, Andy Reid will need to make a decision about who his primary backup quarterback will be.
Mike Kafka, the early favorite for the job was brutal in his first action of the preseason. The third-year quarterback completed five of nine passes for 31 yards, and made [...]
It wasn’t good news to learn yesterday that Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson will miss training camp and possibly a good amount of the regular season while recovering from off season brain surgery. But it is good to know that the Eagles are ready for it.
Patterson’s health was part of the reason that the [...]
