Eagles down to just three healthy wide receivers after waiving DeAndre Carter

Wait, shouldn’t the Eagles be ADDING receivers?

The Philadelphia Eagles waived DeAndre Carter in order to make room for Josh Adams on the 53-man roster, according to an official announcement from the team on Tuesday afternoon.

Carter’s absence means the Eagles are currently down to just THREE healthy wide receivers for Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts: Nelson Agholor, Kamar Aiken, and Shelton Gibson.

Yikes.

Alshon Jeffery returned to practice last week, which was a...

Report: Cardinals sign Joe Walker of Eagles' practice squad

The Cardinals are signing linebacker Joe Walker to their 53-man roster off of the Eagles’ practice squad, a source tells Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer (on Twitter). The Eagles, meanwhile, have filled Walker’s roster spot by promoting running back Josh Adams to the active roster. Walker, 25, appeared in 12 games for the Eagles last year and started in three games. He didn’t see a ton of action on defense, however, and finished out with eight total tackles.The Cardinals can...

Eagles reportedly promote Josh Adams from practice squad to active roster

Hey, that’s not a wide receiver.

The Philadelphia Eagles are signing practice squad running back Josh Adams to their 53-man roster, according to a report from NFL insider Mike Garafolo.

This news is a bit unexpected considering the Eagles desperately need help at wide receiver. But apparently they need help at running back as well.

Adams being promoted to the roster doesn’t seem like a great sign for the availability of Jay Ajayi and/or Darren Sproles this week. Ajayi suffered a back...

Eagles practice squad linebacker signs with Arizona Cardinals

Another change to the scout team.

Josh Adams being signed to the Eagles’ 53-man roster isn’t the only change being made to Philadelphia’s practice squad this week. The Inquirer reports the Arizona Cardinals are signing Joe Walker to their 53-man roster.

The Eagles originally drafted Walker with a late seventh-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. As a rookie, he showed some potential in the preseason before suffering a season-ending ACL injury. Walker made it back to the field to play in...

Eagles’ defensive game plan lacked flexibility against Buccaneers

Death by bombing or a thousand curls, it was coming either way...

The early lead the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles conceded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had many people asking, “what happened? Who is at fault?”

Rest assured there is plenty of blame to go around for a defensive performance that was gashed for 436 total yards. But where does it land? Let’s run through some possible culprits and get to the bottom of it.

RUN DEFENSE...

Might as well keep it moving because this...

Eagles players celebrate the return of Carson Wentz

Let’s all just take a minute to celebrate this great news.

It’s been a long time since the Eagles’ franchise quarterback Carson Wentz went down with a knee injury. (Granted, he didn’t stay down for long and threw for a touchdown before heading to the locker room, but I digress...) But now, HE’S BACK!

Wentz has finally been cleared for contact, which means he’ll be out on the field with his Philadelphia brothers in this Sunday’s Week 3 contest against the Colts. Doug Pederson...

Big Stages and Bigger Storms: No obstacle was too big for this week’s highlighted players

Highlighting two college players.

Bright lights and a hurricane couldn’t keep this week’s highlighted players from putting on the shows of their career.

Florence may have moved Saturday’s game between Ohio and Virginia to a new location, but moving didn’t protect the Bobcats from a different kind of storm. Virginia’s do-it-all offensive weapon, Olamide Zaccheaus, went off for a nine catch, 247 yard performance with two touchdowns. According to PFF, Zaccheaus forced two missed...

Philadelphia Eagles work out four offensive linemen

Philly looking at OL depth.

The Philadelphia Eagles worked out four free agents on Monday, per Howard Blazer. All four players were offensive linemen: Kofi Amichia, Spencer Drango, Kaleb Johnson and Rees Odhiambo.

Amichia slipped through the draft cracks due to his weight being in the low 280s at his pro...

Josh Gordon traded to Patriots; Eagles reportedly weren’t interested

Well, there’s one wide receiver target off the board.

The Philadelphia Eagles will not be acquiring Josh Gordon.

The New England Patriots, who began the season with only three wide receivers on their 53-man roster, completed a trade with the Cleveland Browns on Monday afternoon. The Browns received a 2019 fifth-round draft pick in exchange for the 27-year-old pass catcher. If Gordon isn’t active for 10 games this year, the Browns will reportedly send a 2019 seventh-round pick back to...

How much will Carson Wentz’s return help the Eagles?

Carson Wentz might not fix all of the Eagles’ problems, but it’s still a pretty big deal.

Just a few minutes after Eagles head coach Doug Pederson announced that Carson Wentz was cleared and would be back in the starting role for Philadelphia, Pederson was asked about how much can realistically be expected from the QB his first week back.

The question was based off of comments made by tight end Zach Ertz, who tried to tame teammate and fan expectations. Ertz noted that Wentz isn’t...

While he’d been cleared for 11-on-11 drills, Wentz hadn’t been cleared for full contact until today.
