Eagles jersey buyer's guide - PhillyVoice
16 - Seyi Ajirotutu - I say with no sarcasm whatsoever that I'm firmly confident that this guy is going to be a fan favorite for his work on special teams. Buying a Seyi Ajirotutu jersey would be nod to the Eagles' continued dedication toward their special teams units. You could also go with Chris Maragos, Brian Braman or Trey Burton for similar reasons, but it'll be more fun saying 'Ajirotutu' repeatedly when you're drunk.

Why Rowe Is Starting Out At Corner - Birds 24/7
Cory Undlin was succinct in his explanation of why Eric Rowe is starting out at cornerback instead of safety. "I strongly believe the kid can be a top-level corner in this league. That’s it," he said. What skill set does Rowe possess that gives him that type of ceiling?

That isn’t the same as taking actual practice reps, but it is the best Bradford can do right now and it will help him when he does get back on the field. While Bradford isn’t throwing the ball, those mental reps help him to read the defense and to find the open receiver. Bradford is an accurate passer with good mechanics so the mental side of things and finding the right receiver is the big issue for him.

Ryan Mathews, Giovani Bernard tops among NFL's best No. 2 backs of 2015 - SB Nation
Mathews has had some impressive seasons since being made a first-round pick in 2010, but he also missed 10 games in 2014, and another 10 combined over the three seasons prior. As a backup to DeMarco Murray, Mathews should get his carries and flourish against Murray-battered defenses.
