Eagles News: DeSean Jackson will star in a new BET reality show

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 4/26/2015.

Let's get to the links...

Dion Jordan could probably be had for a reasonable trade offer: Should the Eagles have interest? - PhillyVoice
The Eagles are thin at outside linebacker. They are set at the starting spots, with Connor Barwin and Brandon Graham both locked into long term deals. However, depending on what the team thinks of 2014 first round pick Marcus Smith (and it would seem expectations are low), the Eagles could be in the market for another edge rusher.

Matt Tucker is Happy - Iggles Blitz
I think the Eagles like Polk. The problem is that you can’t pay that much money to your #4 RB. Heck, do you even want to carry 4 RBs? Maybe you go with 3 RBs, knowing that Josh Huff or Trey Burton could play RB in a game emergency. The happiest guy in all of this has to be Matthew Tucker. He spent the last 2 years on the practice squad. He saw the changes made at RB and they would have only made things more difficult for him. Now, Tucker might have a real shot to make the roster.

DeSean Jackson lands reality show deal with BET - Washington Post
In a somewhat surprising move Thursday night, BET announced at its upfront presentation that Washington wide receiver DeSean Jackson will be part of a new reality show called "Home Team." According to Variety, the program will be focused on the women in his life who keep things running smoothly.

Tebow And the Potential Rule Changes - Birds 24/7
The two-point conversion would become a more prominent part of the sport if these rule changes are agreed to. Tebow's skill set, you can argue, could come in handy in those type of goal-line situations. Did that influence the Eagles' thought process when deciding to add him to the roster?

How the Eagles size up draft prospects - Red Zone
Graham is the exception to Kelly's rule that size matters. He is also a cautionary tale for NFL teams that are stringent in their evaluations. But he is the anomaly Kelly and Ed Marynowitz speak of when they describe the Eagles' formula for drafting players, particularly in the early rounds.

Somebody is going to get a quality running back in Chris Polk - The 700 Level
But now there’s another (albeit, lesser) reason to take issue with the move. As a result of the Murray and Ryan Mathews additions, and with Darren Sproles already on the roster, Chris Polk apparently was none too pleased about his opportunities in Philadelphia, and who could blame him? So Polk didn’t jump at the chance to sign his one-year tender as a restricted free agent, and the Eagles ultimately rescinded the offer on Friday, which means he can go wherever he wants.

Eagles rampant pro day attendance about fact-finding, not tricks - CSN Philly
Some teams use visits to create draft-day smoke screens, creating illusion of interest in certain players to disguise their preferences in others. The Eagles have been suspected to use the smoke-screen tactic in the Andy Reid era, but Marynowitz dismissed the idea that any of their highly-publicized stops in cities and campuses across the country are intended to play mind tricks.

Draft Snippets, Tebow Reax And More -
The final week is here prior to the 2015 NFL draft and the Eagles have work to do: Finalize the board, set up the draft room, and complete every draft-weekend scenario with the 31 other teams. There is a lot of work to do ...

Obama absolutely ROASTS the Patriots - SB Nation
On Thursday, Barack Obama hosted the Super Bowl champions at the White House and was flippant (as usual) with his remarks. Here's a full transcript of what the "President" had to say.
