Eagles News: Vinny Curry is Philadelphia's most underpaid player

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 7/3/2015.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Let's get to the links...

A look ahead to the 2016 quarterback class: Cody Kessler edition - PhillyVoice
In the two videos above you see a lot of negatives: Defensive backs getting hands on balls, defensive linemen batting balls down at the line, inaccurate throws, leaving YAC meat on the bone on completions, holding onto the ball for a long time, a lack of zip on window throws and deep throws, and unimpressive mobility. There are positives though, too. You can see him looking off safeties to help his receivers get open, which is something that backs up notions about Kessler's smarts.

Who is the Eagles most underpaid player? -
Vinny Curry is in the final year of his contract at $851,160. That's peanuts for a guy who had nine sacks last year. As a free agent at the end of the year this is the last time Curry will make this list.

Eagles Wake-Up Call: Kelly Calls On Day, Again - Birds 24/7
Ryan Day played quarterback for Chip Kelly when the coach was in full-out mad scientist mode. Serving as New Hampshire’s offensive coordinator at the time, Kelly rotated offensive systems in and out at a dizzying pace as he searched for the perfect concoction. Day was the signal-caller in the middle of the whirlwind.

Where Are They Now? CB Bobby Taylor -
After being named to numerous All-America teams, Bobby Taylor, despite having one year of eligibility left at Notre Dame, thought he was ready to take the next step and play in the NFL. The Eagles agreed and selected the cornerback in the second round of the 1995 NFL Draft. "I was happy," said Taylor. "I just wanted to have an opportunity to reach my lifelong dream of making it to the NFL. So once the Eagles drafted me, I was super excited and ready to go to Philadelphia." Even though the rookie found himself in the starting lineup after just four games, Taylor didn’t find adjusting to the NFL to be an easy task.

Chip Kelly Update: The Dead Zone Lives! - Fishduck
The Eagles’ Jordan Matthews was third best against zone coverage among the 14 WRs in this excellent class of rookies, and a superb 85.7% effective against press coverage, second only to Beckham. He was slightly below average against man coverage, however (59.8%), though nowhere as bad as Watkins (49.5%) or Adams (47%). It will be interesting to see how this changes if he moves outside next year, as expected.

John Moffitt alters right guard competition - ESPN
Moffit also has another advantage. The Eagles already had Tobin and Gardner on the roster when they decided to seek more help. They tried to sign Chris Chester, a former starter who was released by Washington. Chester signed in Atlanta. When Moffit announced he was returning to the NFL after his 2013 retirement, the Eagles pursued him.

No. 23: Sam Bradford - The MMQB
A one-year fallback option for Chip Kelly, or a fallen star about to realize his potential? If Sam Bradford is ever going to re-establish himself as a franchise quarterback, this season, in this system, is the perfect opportunity.

Did you know America has a national football team? Coach Dan Hawkins talks about Team USA - SB Nation
America wants to win the World Championship of American Football. Hawkins is the guy trying to lead them. We talked to him about putting together his squad and the competition.
