Why the Eagles' make sense as a potential landing spot for Jadeveon Clowney

In today’s pass-happy NFL where the signal-callers reign supreme as the games true stars, only defensive ends, and cornerbacks come anywhere near the salary of their high profiled offensive counterparts.  You can never have enough good pass rushers on your roster and the Houston Texans find themselves at odds with one of the NFL’s premier defensive ends/linebackers. We can get back to that whole defensive end thing later on, but for now, Jadeveon Clowney is a holdout in Houston, after...

Carson Wentz left off Pro Football Focus list of NFL's top 10 QB's for 2019

Analytics is key in how you grade and value positions in the NFL and no skill group is subject to over analyzation like NFL quarterbacks. The king of positional grades, Pro Football Focus just dropped their ranking of the top-10 quarterbacks in the NFL entering the 2019 season. The names on the list are familiar, and once again, Philadelphia Eagles star quarterback, Carson Wentz, finishes behind Cleveland’s Baker Mayfield, not even making the top-10. The names on the list are all...

Eagles predicted to have double digit wins in 2019 by Sports Illustrated

On Sunday, another big named media outlet tried their hand at forecasting the schedule for all 32 teams and once again, the Philadelphia Eagles were held in high regard. Using a formula based off hope and prior metrics, Sports Illustrated’s Conor Orr came in with predictions for all 16 regular games and when it came to the NFC East, the Eagles were king finishing with 11 wins. EAGLES: 11–5* At first glance, their schedule is a little brutal. Trips to Minnesota, Green Bay, and Atlanta in...

Eagles Question of the Day: What position should fill the final roster spot?

Photo by John Jones/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

With a few late-offseason roster moves, the Eagles still have one spot left to fill ahead of training camp.

Tyreek Burwell (offensive tackle) retired and the team waived wide receiver Devin Ross before re-signing running back Darren Sproles to a one-year deal. That leaves one more spot to get to their 90-man roster heading into the preseason.

At this point, I think the offense is pretty well stacked. From having proven tight ends, to...

The arguments about the Eagles’ running back situation have shifted, and I am here for it

Photo by John Jones/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Philly’s RB room is young, but has a ton of potential with or without Darren Sproles.

Since Darren Sproles was re-signed to a one-year deal with the Eagles, there’s been a fairly heated debate about whether his roster spot — which is almost assuredly guaranteed among the final 53-man roster — was wasted on a 36-year-old running back who has spent the better part of the past two seasons on the sideline with injuries.

There are a...

Answering questions about the Eagles’ decision to bring Darren Sproles back

Did the team make the right call?

Darren Sproles is officially a member of the Philadelphia Eagles once again. Now let’s try to answer some questions raised by his return.

Why did Darren Sproles want to keep playing?

Sproles hardly NEEDS to keep playing football. He’s 36 years old. He has a family that lives out on the West Coast. He has a Super Bowl ring. He’s made $43,321,100 over the course of his career. He’s made NFL history by becoming...

4 takeaways from the Eagles re-signing Darren Sproles to 1-year deal

The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Friday that they have agreed to a one-year deal to bring running back Darren Sproles back to the team for his 14th NFL season. Sproles will join a crowded backfield that features Jordan Howard, second-round pick Miles Sanders, and Corey Clement among others. With Howie Roseman pulling the trigger to bring Sproles back, here are four takeaways from the signing.

Darren Sproles returning to Eagles on one-year deal

Darren Sproles is coming back for at least one more year. The veteran is signing a one-year deal with the Eagles, the team announced on Twitter. Terms of the deal weren’t immediately disclosed. We heard back in May that Sproles was interested in returning for one more year but that he wanted to play with one of the teams he already had familiarity with, meaning the Chargers, Saints or Eagles. After Sproles only played in three games due to a broken arm and torn ACL in the Eagles’ Super...

Darren Sproles returns to Eagles on one-year deal

Darren Sproles’ NFL career is not over just yet. The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Friday that they have agreed to a one-year deal with Sproles. Sproles has played in only nine games the past two seasons due to injuries. He missed most of the regular season last year due to his hamstring. Although he is 36, Sproles still scored three touchdowns last season — two receiving. He can serve as a special teams returner in addition to his work out of the backfield.
