Eagles targeting Mariota at No. 2 in 3 team deal - BGN
Recent rumors also suggest that Mariota to the Eagles certainly isn't dead yet. ESPN Insider Adam Schefter said earlier this week that he believes it's a possibility now despite once thinking there wasn't a chance. Adding fuel to the speculation is a report from PFT that the Eagles and Sam Bradford have not yet talked about a contract extension.

Who is the greatest living Eagle? - PhillyVoice
For years, many considered Concrete Charlie -- former Eagles linebacker Chuck Bednarik -- the greatest living Eagles player. But that all changed last month when the hall of famer passed away at the age of 89, leaving a void in the hearts of those lucky enough to have seen him play. In addition to Bednarik, the debate for the franchise's all-time greatest player would undoubtedly include names like Brookshire, Brown, Van Buren, and White. Unfortunately, some of the greatest Eagles players are no longer with us, and in the wake of Bednarik's passing, there is no consensus as to whom should replace him as the franchise's top living player.

Marynowitz: Eagles Taking Three-Pronged Approach - Birds 24/7
It’s been nearly three months since Chip Kelly announced he was promoting Ed Marynowitz to vice president of player personnel. On Thursday morning at the NovaCare Complex, the 31 year old met the media for the first time to discuss his new role, the Eagles’ scouting approach and next week’s draft. Marynowitz obviously was in no mood to offer up detailed evaluations on the prospects, but he did speak at length about what the organization is looking for under Kelly. Specifically, Marynowitz laid out the three-part evaluation plan the Eagles use under Kelly.

Ranking the Eagles' draft picks since the merger: 1st Round - CSN Philly
He didn’t deliver a title to Philly, but like him or not, McNabb is the greatest quarterback in Eagles history. He won 66 percent of his starts as an Eagle, with more than twice as many TD passes (216) as interceptions (100) and more than 37,000 yards passing, another 3,400 yards and 29 TDs rushing. And he was the winning QB in nine of the 19 playoff wins in Eagles history. Reid could have taken Daunte Culpepper, Akili Smith, Cade McNown or Tim Couch. This one, he got right.

"When we worked him out, we saw a great deal of improvement with him."
