The Definitive Guide To The 2015 Eagles - Eagles Almanac
The comprehensive season preview made just for die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fans.

BET to air new reality show starring DeSean Jackson - PhillyVoice
DeSean Jackson was of course unceremoniously dumped by the Eagles last offseason, because #Culture. Jackson's off-the-field persona was among the most discussed topics last year by Eagles fans, and yet, it remains somewhat enigmatic. Jackson and his brother Byron are executive producers of the show, so I wouldn't expect anything too unflattering to appear in the portrayal of DeSean's world, but it should be interesting to get a glimpse of him off the field nevertheless. Obviously, this would have been far more awesome a year ago.

Could Eagles be interested in Dion Jordan? At right price, absolutely - Morning Call
News of Dion Jordan skipping the Miami Dolphins' offseason workouts only adds fuel to the fire that his days with the team are numbered. The Dolphins two years ago traded up to jump ahead of the Eagles in the NFL Draft to snag the former University of Oregon defensive end/outside linebacker in the first round. Given Kelly's uncommonly bond with the players he coached at Oregon before coming to the Eagles in 2013 and the fact that Jordan seems more of a fit as an outside linebacker in the Eagles' 3-4 than a 'tweener in the Dolphins' 4-3, you can't help but wonder if Kelly, who has drastically shaken up the roster this offseason, might not be trying to add Jordan too.

Ten Prospects To Know: Eagles WR Targets - Birds 24/7
He seems to be a polarizing prospect. Perriman has great size/speed measurables, and he was a big-play producer. Perriman was the only receiver in the country who caught 50+ balls and averaged at least 20 yards per catch (full write-up/breakdown here). He does an excellent job of adjusting to downfield throws and can also make plays in traffic. Perriman had issues with drops, but his upside is probably greater than any of the other receivers on this list. I'm a believer in his talent and think Perriman could be an option with the 20th pick. Like Agholor, he also reportedly made a visit to the NovaCare Complex.

Marynowitz a better fit with Chip Kelly - Inquirer
When Chip Kelly was given full control over the Eagles and Howie Roseman was left in his wake, Ed Marynowitz said he went to the coach and offered his support. Marynowitz was the highest-ranking member of the personnel department after Roseman was stripped of his general's manager title in January and after Roseman - in his last act as GM - spearheaded Tom Gamble's removal.

Eagles Draft Preview: Would Philadelphia go OLB in Round 1 again? - The 700 Level
On the surface, outside linebacker wouldn’t appear to be a huge need for the Philadelphia Eagles. Connor Barwin is coming off of a Pro Bowl season, and the club re-signed Brandon Graham to start on the opposite end. Yet behind Graham and Barwin, the cupboard is seemingly barren. 2014 first-round pick Marcus Smith couldn’t even get on the field his rookie year. Bryan Braman is purely a special-teams contributor. Travis Long hasn’t played as much as a down in the NFL. If either Barwin or Graham were out for an extended period of time, or even just needed a blow, who would replace them?

Ed Marynowitz compares new boss Chip Kelly to old boss Nick Saban - CSN Philly
On the surface, it might seem that Chip Kelly isn’t an easy boss for your typical NFL scout to please. Kelly has rigid demands from the athletes he covets for his program, including specific height-weight-speed criteria, emphasis on intelligence and character and a willingness to buy into unique regimens predicated on sports science. But working for demanding, detail-obsessed head coaches is the only job Ed Marynowitz has known since he gave up the pro quarterback dream at the University of Central Florida and joined head coach George O’Leary’s football operations staff while he finished his master’s degree.

Chip Kelly goes all in on Philadelphia Eagles' total makeover - NFL.com
Chip Kelly has given Elliot Harrison plenty to chew on as he evaluates the Philadelphia Eagles' offseason. Will the flurry of wheeling and dealing make this team any better in 2015?

Shaq Thompson is headed for NFL limelight, whether he likes it or not - SB Nation
Shaq Thompson doesn't care much for interviews, which can make the NFL Draft process a stressful (though still fun) time for one of the most intriguing prospects in his class.
