BGN Roundtable: Eagles Free Agency Preview - Mike Kaye, BGN
ICYMI, this was really good: The Eagles are gearing up for free agency and BGN writers are dishing their opinions on the process.

Is Logan the Answer at NT? - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz
Let’s talk about Bennie Logan. He began the 2013 season as a backup DL and finished as the starting NT. The reviews of him are mixed. Some felt he was a liability against the run. Others saw an inconsistent rookie. Will the Eagles keep him as the starting NT in 2014?

Mosher's Mailbag: Eagles free-agent targets - Geoff Mosher, CSN Philly
Worilds, the outside linebacker, is the guy I’d keep my eye on. The Steelers want him back, but they have Pro Bowl rush linebacker LaMarr Woodley and first-round pick Jarvis Jones. Worilds usurped the underperforming Jones last year and broke out for eight sacks in 11 starts. He’d be the perfect complement to Connor Barwin in the Eagles’ defense and has 3-4 experience that would enable coordinator Billy Davis to be more creative with his blitzes.

Player Profile: Zach Ertz - Danta Klaus,
Ertz led all rookie tight ends in 2013 with 36 catches for 469 yards and four touchdowns, which, based on first-year production from some of the best tight ends in the game, is a very positive sign for his future trajectory. He has stated that his goal is to be one of the best tight ends ever, and if history is any indication, he is poised for a breakout season in 2014 as a key weapon in Kelly’s offense.

Offseason Forecast: Philadelphia Eagles - Marc Sessler,
After winning the division in Year One, coach Chip Kelly now has the benefit of a full offseason to further fine-tune his roster. Only four teams house fewer free agents-to-be than Philadelphia, so Kelly has a chance to keep his squad intact. With young quarterback Nick Foles in place as the starter behind one of the NFL's most athletic offensive lines, the Eagles would be smart to zero in on a defense that improved down the stretch but still has plenty of holes to fill. Philly is in a good situation to trim the fat and import players who fit the scheme. We don't expect this team to sit still.

Michael Vick enters free agency as a fascinating NFL case study - Judy Batista,
Michael Vick spent part of Super Bowl week making the media rounds, essentially becoming a pitchman for a product that might've increased in value through relative dormancy. Vick, who turns 34 in June, remains one of the NFL's most compelling figures, a precursor to the dual-threat quarterbacks who now captivate talent evaluators, and a litmus test for the league's -- and its fans' -- capacity to tolerate and forgive transgressions. And very soon, he will be something else: a free agent, likely the most interesting one of the offseason.

Marcus Vick wants to fight George Zimmerman after DMX bout on rocks - The700Level
Local "celebrity" boxing promoter Damon Feldman may have jumped the gun on announcing a boxing match between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX. That fight appears to be on shaky ground, with no contract actually signed and DMX’s camp doubting it will ever come to fruition. So who wants to jump in and take DMX’s spot in the ring? Or maybe even beat DMX to get to Zimmerman? How about the brother of Mike Vick, the loquacious Twitter user, Marcus Vick.
