Eagles News: Update on Bennie Logan's knee injury

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 3/20/16.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

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

Keep in mind Logan was put on injured reserve later during the season due to a leg injury.

What do the Eagles have left to do in free agency? - PhillyVoice
DeMarco Murray is out. Bye. That leaves just Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner in the Eagles' backfield. The Eagles could opt to bring in a low-cost back to fill out their roster, but they are probably more likely to look to running back at some point in the draft.

Terrific Offseason - Iggles Blitz
Nigel Bradham, Ron Brooks and Leodis McKelvin were all signed to reasonable deals. They each had a career best season while playing for Jim Schwartz in Buffalo so adding them at the right price made a ton of sense. One of the keys with players like this is that you are bringing them in to fill a role they can handle. Byron Maxwell got #1 CB money, but he wasn’t a #1 CB. He struggled when facing top receivers and not being able to cover them. That hurt his overall confidence. McKelvin might be a starter, but he won’t be expected to shut down receivers. He will be expected to play the way he has in the past.

2016 NFL Draft: Should Eagles take a quarterback at No. 8? -
Since Bradford has yet to show he is anywhere near a franchise quarterback, the idea of taking perhaps the top quarterback prospect in the draft isn't exactly a crazy one. The Eagles need an upgrade at the position, and it is very possible that a player like North Dakota's Carson Wentz or Memphis' Paxton Lynch might be better than Bradford. It could end up being the right one. The issue, however, is that by taking a quarterback at No. 8, the future of the position becomes very uncertain.

Givens' arrival to Eagles shouldn't stop development of Agholor, Huff - Inquirer
Jordan Matthews is, of course, the third receiver Roseman spoke of, but he has played primarily in the slot, and there appears to be little reason to expect Pederson to move him outside. Matthews is certainly talented enough to play outside, but his skills are best utilized inside, as evidenced by the production (152 catches for 1,869 yards and 16 touchdowns) in his first two seasons. So that leaves Agholor, Huff, and Givens as the primary receivers to battle for the two starting outside spots. The Eagles could expend an early-round draft pick on the position, but will they after using a first, second, and third in the previous two drafts and with other positions of need?

Free agency grades: NFC East -
Franchise quarterback is the most precious commodity in the NFL. With no avenue to secure one on the open market, Roseman re-signed Sam Bradford for upside, adding high-end backup Chase Daniel as premium insurance. It's a creative approach to a quarterback problem faced by a handful of teams every offseason. Not done yet, Roseman picked up the underrated duo of Rodney McLeod and Leodis McKelvin for the secondary while adding Jim Schwartz-favorite Nigel Bradham at linebacker. How could Roseman have played the market any better? Grade: A+

Jenkins on Rodney McLeod, lessons from last offseason - CSN Philly
CSN's Jen Daniels caught up with Jenkins Thursday at the annual Zarwin Baum March Madness watching party to benefit Philabundance at the Crystal Tea Room and Jenkins said he's looking forward to working with McLeod, too. "He's a young player in this league that I've watched on tape, that plays with a lot of intensity, flies around," Jenkins said. "He's one of those safeties I think Philadelphia will like. He has that attitude, he's not afraid to stick his nose in the fan. So I'm looking forward to playing with him. He's reached out already, we've met, and I'm looking forward to working with him."

Daughter of NFL QB Randall Cunningham takes off in high jump - Yahoo! Sports
As a 9-year-old, Vashti Cunningham was an impressive player on her flag football team and once scrambled for four touchdowns. Of course, dad was mighty impressed with those elusive moves. Her father is longtime NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, who now doubles as her coach in the high jump. Randall was a game-changer on the football field with his strong arm and quick feet. Vashti could be a game-changer, too. The 18-year-old has a wealth of potential and is vying for a title at the world indoor track and field championships this weekend.
