Random Eagles notes: Byron Maxwell's guarantee, Eagles showed interest in guard  - PhillyVoice
Here is a list of Eagles players who have had at least 10 special teams tackles in one season since 2011.

Huff Envisions Bigger Role In Offense -
After the typical rookie growing pains, Josh Huff expects more out of himself in his second NFL season. Find out how he thinks he’ll be used in the Eagles' offense.

Can the Eagles find a way to use Sproles more often? - Inquirer
But the Sproles of the first half of the season was different from the second-half version. Defensive coordinators caught on to the few pass packages Kelly had designed for the running back, and even though Sproles averaged more yards per snap than any other skill-position player, his playing time never reflected the production.

Malcolm Jenkins: Biggest move in secondary was coaching change - CSN Philly
Maybe the biggest move the Eagles made in the secondary wasn’t signing Byron Maxwell or Walter Thurmond. Maybe the biggest move the Eagles made in the secondary wasn’t cutting ties with Cary Williams, Bradley Fletcher and Nate Allen. Maybe the biggest move the Eagles made in the secondary wasn’t drafting Eric Rowe, JaCorey Shepherd and Randall Evans. Malcolm Jenkins suggested this week it was replacing John Lovett with Cory Undlin.

What’s Going on at OG? - Iggles Blitz
Mathis is a good starting OG. PFF would have you believe he’s some kind of combination of Larry Allen, Randall McDaniel and Will Shields. As much as I like Mathis, he won’t be heading to Canton after his career. I don’t blame him for wanting the money. Football players have short careers. You have to strike while the iron is hot. The problem is that Mathis will turn 34 in November.

Is Walter Thurmond the solution at safety for Eagles? - The 700 Level
If you’re like me, you’ve been wondering how exactly Thurmond fit into Philadelphia’s suddenly crowded secondary from the beginning. Thurmond has lined up in the slot for most of his NFL career, but the Eagles already have one of the better nickel cornerbacks in the league in Brandon Boykin. Thurmond has experience outside as well, but a starting cornerback job is a mighty big role to entrust to a player who’s suited up for only 27 of a possible 71 regular-season and playoff games over the last four years.

Adrian Peterson threw a tantrum about NFL contracts on Twitter - SB Nation
Adrian Peterson wants some work done on his contract and he's not being particularly shy about letting the team know. The Vikings running back went off on a lengthy Twitter rant Thursday afternoon, posting a string of contract-related comments.
