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

Here’s Video of the Recess Fight Allegedly Involving LeSean McCoy - CrossingBroad
According to our source, police have spoken to the officers involved in the incident, at least one of whom was said to be "f***** up" – an actual quote from the source – and their accounts match those given by security and staff from Recess. Warrants are reportedly being sought, perhaps to include McCoy, who, according to a bargoer who witnessed the fight, was involved and appeared to kick someone in the pile. Police may release security video they have of McCoy and friends leaving Recess after the altercation. Security cameras inside the club were "not working" at the time of the incident. [UPDATE: Mike Garafolo reports that law enforcement sources expect a warrant for McCoy with self-surrender allowed by mid-week.]

Comparing Carson Wentz, Jared Goff, and Paxton Lynch: Release edition - PhillyVoice
Of Wentz, Lynch and Goff, you would expect Lynch to be the most challenged in that department of the three, as he is listed at 6'7. Surprisingly, Lynch's release really isn't as slow as you might expect. In my opinion, the ball actually comes out relatively quickly. However, as you can see below, he does have a little bit of a windup. Where that becomes an issue is when you have safeties peering into the backfield. Lynch's motion could tip off savvy defenders when the ball is coming out.

Expect A Changing Dynamic At WR -
This is the first of what could be a handful of moves as the Eagles clean up the salary cap, tighten up the roster and prepare for free agency (March 9) and the NFL Draft in April. Wide receiver is a position that must give more production, so releasing veteran Riley Cooper on Monday wasn't all that surprising ...

Riley Flew the Coop - Iggles Blitz
The Eagles cut Riley Cooper today. Not exactly shocking news, but a transaction worth reporting. Cooper wasn’t earning his contract and that made the cut pretty easy. Some people are going to talk about this as the Eagles trying to get rid of a Chip Kelly guy. I really don’t see it that way. Cooper was drafted by Howie Roseman and played for Andy Reid for 3 seasons. They liked his size and toughness. Cooper’s breakout season and subsequent contract extension came on Kelly’s watch. I think the real reason he is seen as a Kelly guy is that Chip was so defensive about Cooper when the media would ask about his lack of production or any mistakes he might have made.

Looking at the Eagles' offseason through green-tinted glasses - CSN Philly
Chip Kelly is out: We’ll start where Roob and Sessler left off. I didn’t mind Kelly, but Jeffrey Lurie obviously did. You don’t fire your head coach with one game left in the regular season if everything is operating smoothly behind the scenes. Now he’s across the continent. Watching how he does in San Francisco will be almost as much fun as the endless amusement he gave us last year when he staged a front office coup, detonated the roster, brought in players he wanted, absorbed endless criticism from former players about myriad topics, stumbled to a losing record and got axed before the season was over. The man was a comet passing through our entertainment airspace. Godspeed.

Eagles Wake-Up Call: A Philly Slant To the Super Bowl - Birds 24/7
*What a crazy year for Evan Mathis. Makes waves this offseason in search of a pay bump; gets cut by Chip Kelly, who has no tolerance for boat-rocking; ends up signing in Denver for less than he was slated to make in Philly; has a bumpy year for the Broncos and is in and out of the lineup; ends up winning a Super Bowl as Peyton Manning‘s starting left guard. Guessing he’s OK with the way things played out.

Cool it; T.O. eventually will get into Hall - Daily News
Apparently, many of my colleagues feel he needs to spend some time in purgatory before he gets to enter the pearly gates of Canton. As one of the Hall's 46 selectors, I am not allowed to tell you specifically what was said in the meeting room during our discussions about Owens or any of the other finalists. But I can tell you what many of them said to me afterward. In a nutshell, they said Owens was a horrible teammate who dragged down many of the five clubs he played on. And they felt that was more than enough reason to ignore his impressive statistics.

RSP Boiler Room No.11: Paxton Lynch Part III - Matt Waldman
I’m having fun watching Paxton Lynch, because there are a ton of discussion points with the quarterback’s game. This is true of many quarterbacks, which is why the position is so tricky to project. The first play in this video is an example of Lynch’s arm talent. The second is a touchdown pass to Lynch’s third read in the red zone. It’s a fine play, but I also explain why this play–in context with the rest of this game–may lead some analysts and scouts to question the intent of Lynch’s ball placement on the throw.
