Let's get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...

Roseman: Fletcher Cox is going to get 'great player money' - CSN Philly
"For us, he’s a great player, so he’s going to get great player money," Roseman said. "We’re not shy about saying that. It comes down to kind of structure and all the things that kind of complicate negotiations. But I think the intention is right from him and his representative and certainly from us and how we feel about him."

Chiefs’ Chase Daniel believes he’s ready to be a starter, and he’s not alone - KC.com
It did not take long at all to sense how seriously Chase Daniel was taking the 2015 preseason. The best evidence of this was his performance, obviously, which was excellent. The seven-year veteran was slinging it good, completing an absurd 41 of 53 passes for 388 yards, five touchdowns and an interception in four games — all wins. And equally impressive was the way Daniel, who always hung around to do postgame interviews, would eloquently explain what went right or what went wrong. His performance clearly mattered to him, preseason or not, and the 29-year-old was dead-set on proving that during what amounted to an audition, of sorts, in the final year of his deal.

NFL Combine positional previews: Quarterbacks who could interest the Eagles - PhillyVoice
Wentz is big, he has a good arm, a quick release, he's surprisingly athletic, and he has a good feel for the game. However, Wentz will encounter concerns about the level of competition he faced at North Dakota State. We did a thorough review of Wentz's overall game about a month ago. Wentz had his season interrupted by a broken bone in his wrist on his throwing arm, but he competed at the Senior Bowl and looked the part of a franchise quarterback. The Eagles have had extreme instability at the quarterback position since they (rightfully) traded Donovan McNabb, and they aren't winning jack until they get it fixed. Wentz could be a guy who may need a year before he's ready to play, but that patience could pay off in the form of long-term quarterback stability.

Eagles Combine Prep: Quarterbacks - Birds 24/7
Ah, quarterback. The most valuable position in all of football. The Eagles haven’t had a good, reliable quarterback under center since 2009, Donovan McNabb’s final season with the team. Michael Vick started hot, but faded fast. Nick Foles did the same. Sam Bradford did the opposite this past season, but his future with the team is tenuous. And Mark Sanchez throws the ball to the wrong team. Eagles fans' interest in drafting a quarterback clearly hinges on what happens with Bradford's contract situation; if they bring him back in 2016, the likelihood of drafting a quarterback in the first round likely decreases. If they don't, it likely increases.

Roseman will need his skills at managing cap - Inquirer
A tumultuous year in which Howie Roseman was removed from football operations in favor of Chip Kelly only to be reinstated after Kelly was fired illustrated that the two men had many differences. But as much as they seemingly had polar opposite personalities and football backgrounds, Roseman and Kelly differed on how to manage the Eagles roster and salary cap. It could be said that Kelly's free spending ways ultimately did him in, and as a result made Roseman even more attractive to owner Jeffrey Lurie. Because if there's one thing Roseman the general manager did right it was manage an ever-expanding cap. Some may say it was the only thing, but that wouldn't be entirely fair. But Roseman, it is safe to assume, would have never gone into this offseason with so little cap space, especially with a fluid quarterback situation.

Pondering The Next Steps At Quarterback - PE.com
It seems fairly straightforward, and within that there are many complexities for the Eagles to consider: What happens next at the quarterback position for a franchise in search of stability and excellence? ...

Howie Roseman Officially Confirms Doug Pederson’s Yes-Man Status - Crossing Broad
We all know the triumvirate of Howie Roseman/Chip Kelly/Jeffrey Lurie didn’t have the smoothest relationship. In fact, Howie and Chip’s could be described like that of oil and… someone who took oil’s job and made it a laughingstock. The Eagles’ brain trust, as you know, wanted someone more amenable to their wishes this time around, so Howie is happy to finally confirm what we all suspected– that the Eagles got their yes-man.

Giants' Ben McAdoo reveals how close he came to Eagles job - NJ.com
Speaking Wednesday at the NFL Combine, McAdoo insisted that the one interview was as far as it went.  "I went down for an interview," McAdoo said.  And did they offer you the job? "They never offered me the job," McAdoo insisted.  Was there a second interview? "There was a potential for a second interview," McAdoo revealed.

The top free agent quarterbacks of 2016 - SB Nation
The Eagles have expressed some interest in re-signing Bradford, though new head coach Doug Pederson may prefer to draft a young signal caller instead. If he walks, multiple QB-starved teams could offer him lucrative multi-year deals. Bradford's agent Tom Condon reportedly seeks $25 million per year, but the real number should fall below that.
