Brandon Graham does not reveal position, has been preparing for move to OLB
It's believed that Brandon Graham will be an outside linebacker in the Eagles' new defense. Graham, though, wouldn't confirm that will happen. "I don't know. There's been a lot of talk about a lot of things," Graham said Tuesday. "I don't know where they want to put me at. All I know is whereever they put me, I'll go full out."

Jason Peters has already earned five Pro Bowl nominations, four all-pro honors and staked his claim as the NFL’s top left tackle over the past five or so years.

Reported vs Effective Cap Space - Over the Cap
There are a number of misconceptions that occur when people talk of salary cap space during this time of year. Perhaps the biggest comes from a majority of the media who say the team needs to set aside x amount of dollars for the rookie class, which in the Jets case is $5.6 million. We have touched on that before but the basic consideration that is missed is that each player being signed replaces a player already under contract so the space needed is much less than the full amount.

Philadelphia Eagles: Kelly planning many changes for Eagles - mcall.com
Kelly has stated that he believes elite athletes need 10-12 hours of sleep per day. Add an hour or so to commute each way to the NovaCare Complex, and that leaves approximately 10 hours for everything else — eating, lifting, studying, practicing, showering, home-shopping and all other personal business — if his players follow the program properly. Hence, Kelly will need to get more accomplished in less time than Reid. This means that not only will their practices be lightning-quick, but the pace of their weight-room and conditioning work will be accelerated.
