First-Round Picks Share A Career Story

At various points on the first day of Organized Team Activities for the Eagles, a pair of former first-round draft picks lined up against each other, both trying to make a play, trying to resurrect careers. Patrick Robinson was the 32nd player taken in the 2010 NFL Draft. Nelson Agholor was the 20th overall pick in 2015. They have a lot in common ...

Carson Wentz's mechanics already looked improved

Encouraging sign.

I don't believe Carson Wentz' mechanics were as terrible as some people suggested last season, but it was clear at times his mechanics were not very good at all. Improving your mechanics must be incredibly difficult as a quarterback and every quarterback will spend every offseason working on his mechanics no matter how good they are. With the media getting their first look at Wentz in 2017 on Tuesday, I was really interested to see if his mechanics look like they had...

Eagles Practice Notes from OTAs: 25 things we learned

Not a bad first day!

The Philadelphia Eagles began their 2017 OTA practices on Tuesday. The practice session was open to media and I was there to observe it all.

There's only so much to be gleaned from players running around in shorts, but here's what I noticed on Tuesday.

Report: Fletcher Cox to return to Eagles OTAs next week

The Eagles started this year’s slate of Organized Team Activities without defensive tackle Fletcher Cox in attendance, but it doesn’t sound like his absence is going to be an extended one. Coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that while he would expect Cox to be at the practices, the defensive tackle has a satisfactory reason for…

NFL approves changes to overtime, injured reserve, and touchdown celebrations

Celebrate!

Owners and the league approved several rule and roster changes for the 2017 today at the league’s spring meeting in Chicago.

Overtime is now 10 minutes long

There will be more ties. Shortened from 15 minutes, all overtime periods will now be just 10 minutes long. According to the NFL, over the past five seasons 22 of 83 overtime games went beyond 10 minutes in overtime. However over that same period, only five games ended in a tie, a retroactive 10 minute overtime would have...

Fletcher Cox expected to return to Eagles practice next week, report says

Good news.

As noted earlier today, Fletcher Cox is one of three veteran players currently not attending the Eagles’ voluntary organized team activity practices in Philadelphia. That’s expected to change soon, however.

ESPN’s Tim McManus reports Cox will be back at practice next week. McManus also notes Cox isn’t at practice this week because the Eagles defensive tackle wanted to spend time with his family.

Cox recently posted a picture on Snapchat indicating he was at Simpson Bay on...

Philadelphia Eagles Veterans in Danger of Losing Roster Spot This Offseason

NFL depth charts are the ultimate revolving door in sports, and the Philadelphia Eagles roster has exemplified that as the team continues to rebuild its roster under head coach Doug Pederson and his staff.

The Eagles have done well over the last two offseasons to infuse the roster with the right young talent, but tough decisions need to be made regarding overpaid veterans who are no longer proving to be worth their contracts. Philly has already made progress on this front by releasing...
