Let's get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...
Pederson: Bradford, Cox ‘Losing Valuable Time’ - Birds 24/7
Sam Bradford and Fletcher Cox are in different situations. While the Eagles don’t appear to want the quarterback long term, they hope to build their defense around the Pro Bowl tackle. Still, according to Doug Pederson, they’re in the same boat when it comes to holding out of voluntary workouts. "Anybody that’s not in any of the 32 offseason programs is losing valuable time at that club," Pederson said. "So anybody that’s not in the offseason program, yes, would lose the time."
Eagles notes: Bradford still not in touch - Inquirer
Pederson, who has reached out to Bradford, said that he still hasn't spoken to the quarterback since the [trade] request. Only one Eagles player has reached out to Bradford, a team source said.
Culture club no more? Roseman loads up on character risks late in draft - PhillyVoice
This time last year, "culture" was a buzzword around the NovaCare Complex. Chip Kelly wanted good players, but he also needed what he believed were good people. In his one year as head of personnel, the players that Kelly picked weren’t good enough, which is why he resides in the Bay Area now. Enter Howie Roseman, who handled his one-year demotion as deftly as Frank Underwood. For obvious reasons, every move that the Eagles executive vice president of football operations makes will be read into a certain way and compared to Kelly’s 2015 reign of terror.
The Day After - Iggles Blitz
3-year starter for SDSU. Played RG. Plays with good leverage and is a powerful blocker. Limited athlete, but good enough for RG. I’m sure one of the things the Eagles liked about him is that he plays with an edge. Shows a nasty streak on the field. Draftable player, but was suspended for some games at the beginning of the year and that may have hurt him. Also was a very deep OL class. The Eagles checked him out before the draft so this is someone they had real interest in.
A bold bet: Eagles' future falls fully on Carson Wentz's shoulders - CSN Philly
I'm sure most people saw it as the silly kind of posed photo that comes with every NFL draft. You know, the shot of the draft pick standing with the front office, grinning and holding up his new jersey. Yeah, there is Carson Wentz with Jeff Lurie, Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson. Everyone say cheese. Just a photo op, right? What's the significance? Usually nothing. Except this time I was struck by the number on the jersey. It was No. 11, which isn't surprising since that's the number Wentz wore at North Dakota State. But it is a number that carries a lot of significance if you are a student of Eagles history which, for better or worse, I am.
Hey Sam Bradford, look what DeMarco Murray is doing - NJ.com
Mularkey told the Tennessee media after the pick, he called Murray to make sure he understood that Henry wasn't coming to take the starting job away from Murray, and Mularkey said he and Murray are on the same page. "You don't do it for everybody, but there's certain circumstances that you feel like it is necessary to make sure you are clear on the motive and why you are doing things,'' Mularkey said of calling Murray. "Out of respect I wanted to do that "First of all, he loved the pick. And he said, 'He's going to make me better and I am going to do the same for him.' He said, 'I'm going to do whatever I can to make him a great player.' '' Henry will get carries out of the Titans' backfield, but Murray is still the starter. Just as Bradford is with the Eagles.

Jerry Jones lost sleep over missing out on Paxton Lynch - ESPN
Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones did not get much sleep after the first round of the draft. He couldn't get Paxton Lynch out of his head. The Cowboys attempted to trade back into the first round to select Lynch, working through a number of trades only to see their final attempt with Seattle fall through when the Seahawks agreed to a deal with the Denver Broncos.
