  Eagles | Nelson Agholor may play on special teams    Wed Mar 29, 11:14 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor could take on a role on special teams, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Footballguys view: Agholor needs to bring more value to the Eagles. They added talent at the WR position in free agency by acquiring Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith. Agholor had great promise as a first-round pick coming out of USC, but now he has to be considered fourth or fifth on the depth chart.

  Eagles | Chris Long to the Eagles    Tue Mar 28, 11:52 AM

Free-agent DE Chris Long (Patriots) agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday, March 28. It's believed to be worth around the $2.4 million he made last year.

Footballguys view: Long will bring veteran leadership to the Eagles lockerroom. He'll be able to contribute as a part-time pass rusher who could snare around five sacks or so in 2017.

  Eagles | Chris Godwin to visit Philadelphia    Sun Mar 26, 09:17 PM

Penn State WR Chris Godwin has a private workout scheduled with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to his agent.

Footballguys view: The Eagles have been searching for better WRs, and that's why they signed Alson Jeffery and Torrey Smith in free agency. Godwin was a productive receiver for the Nittany Lions, and he was at his best in their bowl games. Godwin is tough to bring down after the catch, and he can either work the sidelines or the deep middle of the field. With his ability to contribute as a receiver or return man, plus with his nose for the end zone (11 receiving TDs in 2016), Godwin should be a second-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Eagles | Philly to work out Nate Peterman    Wed Mar 22, 05:59 PM

Pittsburgh QB Nate Peterman is scheduled to have a private workout with the Philadelphia Eagles next week.

Footballguys view: The Eagles selected Carson Wentz with the no.2 overall pick last year, and he's the clear-cut starter. Peterman is a gunslinger and potential starter at the pro level. The Eagles could add him as a backup and developmental player behind Wentz.

  Eagles | Nick Foles hoping to help Carson Wentz    Fri Mar 17, 10:25 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles said he is embracing his role as the backup quarterback and is focusing on helping QB Carson Wentz in any way he can.

Footballguys view: Foles returns to the Eagles with the clear picture that he is the backup. It's a good attitude to have, and Foles gives the team veteran depth in case Wentz gets banged up in his second year as a pro.

  Eagles | Corey Davis visiting Philly    Fri Mar 17, 05:24 PM

Western Michigan WR Corey Davis was scheduled to meet with the Philadelphia Eagles Friday, March 17.

Footballguys view: Davis was a TD-machine in college, and he was a man among boys in his conference. He has great 'my ball' mentality and will rip away contested catches from smaller corners. Some in the scouting community compare his game to Eric Decker (Jets).

  Eagles | Leonard Fournette visiting Philadelphia    Fri Mar 17, 12:17 PM

LSU RB Leonard Fournette is visiting with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, March 17.

Footballguys view: The Eagles are looking for a lead back, and Fournette would give them just that. He's not quite Bo Jackson or Adrian Peterson, but our own Matt Waldman thinks Fournette could play like Stephen Davis (Panthers, Washington). Fournette is an upright runner with power and a scissor stride that eats up ground quickly. We should see him go off the board in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.

  Eagles | Mike Williams visiting Eagles    Fri Mar 17, 10:23 AM

Clemson WR Mike Williams has a pre-draft visit with the Philadelphia Eagles Friday, March 17.

Footballguys view: Williams may be the top WR off the board this year in the 2017 NFL draft. He reminds some in the scouting community of Plaxico Burress (Steelers, Giants) because of his size, wingspan and ability to make difficult catches.

  Eagles | Dalvin Cook visiting Philly    Thu Mar 16, 10:41 PM

Florida State RB Dalvin Cook is visiting the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 16, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Cook may be a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft. He's got good burst to and through the hole, and he shows great patience and vision when running to the outside. Fumbles, bad pass-protection skills and off-field incidents will give teams pause when considering the Seminole back.

  Eagles | Philly talks with John Ross    Mon Mar 13, 07:00 PM

Washington WR John Ross met with the Philadelphia Eagles over the weekend.

Footballguys view: The Eagles didn't get DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) in free agency, so they could use a player like Ross. He set the new record for 40-yard dashes at the Scouting Combine with a blazing 4.22 second time. Ross is more than just a speed guy and does a good job getting open on underneath routes.

  Eagles | Zach Ertz restructures    Mon Mar 13, 09:28 AM

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz restructured his contract Monday, March 13, according to a source. The move turned $3.225 million into a signing bonus and created $2.58 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: The move doesn't cost Ertz anything, but it frees up some space for the Eagles to sign Nick Foles. Ertz should still be a large part of what the Eagles do through the air, but with Alshon Jeffery added in free agency we could see it impact the number of targets Ertz gets.

  Eagles | Nick Foles signs with Eagles    Mon Mar 13, 08:50 AM

Free-agent QB Nick Foles (Chiefs) agreed to a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, March 13, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Foles goes back to Philadelphia to give them veteran depth behind second-year pro Carson Wentz. With Foles back on the team, current backup Chase Daniel could be dealt or dumped.

  Eagles | Mychal Kendricks still on trading block    Sun Mar 12, 10:25 AM

  Eagles | Philly made solid offer for Brandin Cooks    Sat Mar 11, 07:40 PM

Philadelphia Eagles S Malcolm Jenkins was part of a package the team used in attempt to acquire former New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks before he was traded to the New England Patriots. The Eagles offered Jenkins, a 2017 third-round pick and a 2017 fourth-round pick, but the Saints wanted a second-round pick plus Jenkins.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery's deal is worth $9.5 million for one year with an addition $4.5 million being paid as an incentive if he is named to the Pro Bowl. It was previously reported that Jeffery had received a one-year deal worth $14 million.

  Eagles | Chance Warmack agrees to join Eagles    Thu Mar 9, 04:32 PM

Free-agent OG Chance Warmack (Titans) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 9. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: He'll be in the mix to start despite being a disappointment in Tennessee. If he can reboot his career in Philly, he could be a nice upgrade on the line.

  Eagles | Alshon Jeffery signs with Eagles    Thu Mar 9, 04:08 PM

Free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery (Bears) is signing with the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year, $14 million deal Thursday, March 9.

Footballguys view: Jeffery got paid short term in a pretty bad market for receivers. It's a bit surprising nobody bit for a longer go, but he should be a nice fit for both him and Carson Wentz. Torrey Smith and he might eat into each other's targets, but they should also pull coverage off each other.

  Eagles | Alshon Jeffery favoring Eagles    Thu Mar 9, 02:33 PM

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery is leaning towards signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source.

Footballguys view: We like this fit, though it would hurt Torrey Smith's value a little. That said, they would be a potent overall pairing for the Eagles if Carson Wentz continues to develop.

  Eagles | Torrey Smith agrees with Eagles    Thu Mar 9, 11:15 AM

Free-agent WR Torrey Smith (49ers) has agreed to a three-year, $15 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 9.

Footballguys view: The Eagles get a reliable - and lately, criminally underused - receiver who can be a vertical threat for Carson Wentz. This is a great signing for a team in real need of a decent receiver. Smith has plenty of upside remaining and could be a big weapon for fantasy owners next year if Wentz progresses.

Free-agent CB A.J. Bouye (Texans) is being pursued by the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source. The Eagles have already released CB Leodis McKelvin, while impending free-agent CB Nolan Carroll could also be gone.

Footballguys view: Bouye is the top corner available on the market this year. He's got a small handful of teams interested and willing to pay him a big money deal. The Eagles are in line with teams like the Jaguars, Bears and Buccaneers.

  Eagles | Philadelphia targeting Kenny Britt?    Mon Mar 6, 02:33 PM

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Kenny Britt is expected to receive interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, according to ESPN.com's Tim McManus.

Footballguys view: Most any free agent receiver should be of interest to the Eagles. They're looking to upgrade their WR corps, and that's why Britt makes the list. Coming off the first 1,000-yard season of his whole career, Britt will be one of the most sought after receivers on the market.

  Eagles | Ryan Mathews likely done in Philly    Sat Mar 4, 06:25 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews 'probably has played his last game for the Eagles', according to the Philadelphia Daily News' Paul Domowitch.

Footballguys view: Mathews has a non-guaranteed $4 million salary in 2017. Releasing him would come with $1 million in dead money for the Eagles. Coming off a serious neck injury, Mathews could return to the Eagles with a pay cut. Either way, the Eagles need to find better options at the RB position, and that's why we think they'll draft a back this year in the draft at some point.

  Eagles | Allen Barbre allowed to seek trade    Sat Mar 4, 11:38 AM

Philadelphia Eagles OG Allen Barbre has received permission to seek a trade this offseason.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood in the mix at running back, according to head coach Doug Pederson, and Pederson said he wants to see where Smallwood is at physically coming off a knee injury last season.

Footballguys view: Ryan Mathews looked like a bad fit in this offense last season and Darren Sproles is showing his age. Smallwood has a nice skillset, though we aren't sure he can take a full season of pounding as the primary back.

  Eagles | Philly to consider Jamaal Charles    Wed Mar 1, 09:19 PM

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson suggested Wednesday, March 1, he will look into whether or not free-agent RB Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) is a fit in Philadelphia. Pederson served as Charles' offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2013-15.

Footballguys view: We could see Charles worked in as a receiver out of the backfield and change-of-pace runner for the Eagles. The price tag has to be right, but the Eagles may be the best destination for Charles due to his previous working relationship with Pederson.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (back) is making good progress in his recovery from a back injury and is expected to be ready for next season, according to general manager Howie Roseman.

Footballguys view: Mathews is likely to be asked to take a pay cut. He's got a base salary of $4 million in 2016, and that's too high for a player with Mathews history.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is an attractive chip for luring free-agent receivers, according to several insiders.
