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

Opportunity with Eagles, talk with Le'Veon Bell has Kenjon Barner hungry - CSN Philly
"I had a talk with Le'Veon Bell back in January," Barner said. "I spoke with him and we were just talking about eating. I'm the type of guy that if I see somebody and I see a change in them and I see it's positive, I have no problem telling you, 'I like what you're doing, tell me how you did it.' I reached out to him because I've been seeing pictures of him and I've seen his body change. We came in the draft together and he's always been a big guy, but he hasn't been that cut, that ripped. So I reached out to him like, 'Yo, what did you do, what's your diet, what have you been taking, what are you doing and what are you not doing?' Just really trying to pick his brain.

How hard is it to stick around in the NFL? Just ask this QB - Boston Globe
The quarterback sat in his apartment on Tuesday afternoon, pondering his next move in life. He had signed with the Eagles this offseason, but the team never told him of its plans to trade up in the draft for Carson Wentz. Suddenly, he had to figure out what to do next with his football career. No, we’re not talking about Sam Bradford, who will still collect $22 million from the Eagles whether he plays or not. The real quarterback affected by the Eagles’ play for Wentz was McLeod Bethel-Thompson, a 27-year-old journeyman who suddenly found himself fourth on the depth chart and was unceremoniously released last week, 2½ weeks after the draft.

Preseason All-NFC East team: Offense edition - PhillyVoice
Hey hey! Finally an Eagle! This one isn't close. Johnson is by far the best right tackle in the NFC East, although he won't be for long. He'll be moving to left tackle whenever Jason Peters is done.

Work to be Done - Iggles Blitz
Right now the defense is a work in progress. They struggled mightily when the media got to watch practice on Tuesday. There were far too many blown coverages and missed assignments. There is no hitting or tackling at this time of the year so the focus for defenders is being at the right place at the right time. That would be fine except that Eagles defenders are learning a new scheme. Some guys are changing positions. Then you have quite a few rookies and second-year players in the mix. To put it mildly, this group has a long way to go.

Brandon Brooks has Eagles' O-line on a roll - Inquirer
"I like everything about it. I like the owner, the GM, the coach. I'm playing with guys like JP and Kelce, who are like older brothers. If I do something wrong or have a question, they coach me up and encourage me. It's great. This feels like home to me," said Brooks, who is from Milwaukee. "You have the seasons here. The fans embrace me, my teammates embrace me. I feel like the least I can do is embrace them back." As part of that, Brooks is living downtown, walking the streets, meeting people, and his Twitter feed (@bbrooks_79) is often a wide-ranging rundown of the eating establishments he is discovering. But if you really want to know how much of a Philadelphian the 26-year-old Brooks is becoming, you need to hear only one sentence. "Wawa is the bomb," he said.

Eagles Wake-Up Call: Roseman’s Tale - Birds 24/7
A running joke emerged between Tannenbaum and Joe Banner about this "crazy, stalkerish kind of guy who wouldn’t leave them alone." Tannenbaum decided to interview Roseman for an internship position anyway, and Roseman ended up being a finalist for the job (which he ultimately did not get.) "Mike called Joe and said, ‘Hey I interviewed the guy that we thought may be crazy, maybe need a restraining order [for],’ and Joe said, ‘Are you serious? Did you really do that?’ And Mike said, ‘Yeah, and if you need someone you should probably talk to him.'"

Inside The Studio: Blake Countess -
Safety Blake Countess joins Dave Spadaro in studio and talks about the transition from Auburn to becoming a professional football player and what his experience with the Eagles has been like to this point ...

It's way too early to judge Eagles' Doug Pederson -
There are reasons to believe Pederson won't succeed in the NFL. His only head coaching experience was in high school. He was only a coordinator for three years. And the offense he coordinated in Kansas City was Andy Reid's offense and the head coach called the plays. Then again, Reid, who turned into the winningest head coach in Eagles' history, had limited experience, was never even a coordinator, and went from the Green Bay Packers' quarterback coach to Eagles' head coach when he was hired in 1999.

The Giants need Ben McAdoo to be more than his playbook - SB Nation
The Giants hired McAdoo to turn around their offense in 2014. Now, he's the head coach and tasked with building "a new era of Giants football."
