Report: Veteran CB Ronald Darby signs one-year deal with Redskins

The Redskins and veteran cornerback Ronald Darby are in agreement on a one-year, $4M deal, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com (Twitter link). Darby has spent the last three seasons with the division-rival Eagles, though all three of those seasons have been marred to some degree by injury. He played in only eight games in 2017, nine in 2018, and 11 in 2019. Darby's 2018 season was cut short by an ACL tear, but he was at least playing at an above-average level prior to the injury. The same cannot...

Former Eagles CB is going to down to DC.

Ronald Darby is leaving the Philadelphia Eagles but he’s not leaving the NFC East. The 26-year-old cornerback is signing a one-year contract worth $4 million with Washington, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

It’s certainly no surprise that the Eagles didn’t retain Darby. Here’s what we wrote about him following the 2019 season:

The 2020 NFL Draft, which will NOT be postponed, is just 26 days away. Let’s pass the time until then by looking at who mock drafts have the Philadelphia Eagles selecting with the No. 21 overall pick. This roundup reflects how mocks have changed (or not) since NFL free agency began over a week ago.

Are the Eagles hanging Carson Wentz out to dry?

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Wentz had the worst receiver corps in the NFL last year and they’re running it back... mostly.

When the 2019 season finally drew to a close against the Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card Game, the Eagles’ wide receivers were Greg Ward, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Shelton Gibson, and Deontay Burnett. An underachieving Alshon Jeffery missed the final few weeks of the season with a Lisfranc injury, DeSean Jackson played one full game for the Eagles and was then lost...

Eagles exercise options on Carson Wentz, Alshon Jeffery, others

The Eagles picked up Zach Ertz‘s 2021 option earlier Friday, but that wasn’t the front office’s only move. The NFL transactions report shows that the organization exercised the options on quarterback Carson Wentz, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, defensive end Brandon Graham, offensive guard Isaac Seumalo and defensive lineman Malik Jackson. As Charean Williams of ProFootballTalk.com writes, these moves were merely “procedural,” and similar to the Ertz move, they’re not all...

Plus, a cap space update.

The Philadelphia Eagles have made a number of acquisitions and re-signings since NFL free agency began last week. Let’s revisit the terms of those incoming contracts now that more details have been revealed.


Slay’s previous contract with the Detroit Lions ran though the 2020 season. Upon trading for the three-time Pro Bowl cornerback, the Eagles tacked on three more years to his deal. The extension was...

Eagles pick up Zach Ertz's option

The Eagles have exercised Zach Ertz‘s option for the 2021 season, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com (on Twitter). No surprise here – he’s one of the league’s most skilled tight ends and the Eagles are expected to try for an even longer arrangement in the coming months. For now, Ertz is slated to count for $8M in 2020 and $8.25M in 2021, the aforementioned option year. Given the advancement of the tight end market, and Ertz’s production, you can expect to see a sizable pay bump...

Is taking a wide receiver in the first round the best move for the Eagles?

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles have a lot of holes to fill. Is taking a wideout at 21 the best move? BGN’s Ben Natan weighed in.

The Eagles could use help at the wide receiver position.

I know, it’s a shocking take. I’ll give you a moment to pick your jaw up off the floor.

Last season, the Eagles’ offense had one of the most unusual seasons in modern NFL history. Quarterback Carson Wentz became the first passer in history to throw for more than 4,000 yards without any...

Then, he shared a picture of himself as a “method podcaster” and this scribe will never be the same again. Not surprisingly, this picture garnered some funny responses on Twitter.
