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

Fletcher Cox will have $55.549 million fully guaranteed by March 2017 - PFT
The Eagles have paid defensive tackle Fletcher Cox a lot of money. A lot of money. And a lot of that money will be fully guaranteed within only nine months. Per a source with knowledge of the contract, a whopping $55.549 million will be fully guaranteed by March of 2017. At signing, $36.299 million in fully guaranteed.

Fletcher Cox deal smart move for player trending upwards - PFF
After grading well in his first three years, Cox made a huge jump in production in 2015, particularly as a pass-rusher. The Eagle graded below-average in just one game—Week 7 versus Carolina—compared to 13 weeks of positive grades. His 90.3 overall PFF grade was the highest on the Eagles’ roster last year, and he ranked 28th in our Top 101 players of the 2015. He had the second-highest overall grade for 3-4 defensive ends behind only J.J. Watt, and fifth-highest among all interior defensive linemen. Cox’s 77 total pressures were third-most among 3-4 defensive ends, although when factoring in number of pass rushing snaps, his per-snap pass-rushing productivity ranked eighth.

10 reasons the Cowboys will be a dumpster fire this season - PhillyVoice
If Tony Romo didn't get hurt last year, the Cowboys would have gone 16-0 during the regular season, and then went on to win the Super Bowl. Or so I've been told by Cowboys fans. The reality is that the Cowboys stunk without Romo, but it's not as if Romo was good last year and played a positive role in the rare wins they collected when he was able to go. Romo started four games last season.

If Chip Kelly's playbook was a pamphlet, Doug Pederson's is more like 'War and Peace' - ESPN
The Eagles offense will have a much different look under Doug Pederson, who puts a lot of responsibility on the quarterback in his system.

Eagles Offseason Overview - Inquirer
Allen Barbre - Pederson, unlike Chip Kelly, wasn’t afraid to list his depth chart long before the season. He gave Barbre the early nod at left guard, which makes one wonder whether the coach watched last season’s tape.

Post-offseason Eagles 53-man roster projection - CSN Philly
The starting three (Kendricks, Hicks, Bradham) look good, provided they can stay healthy, and Goode is a competent reserve who pitches in on special teams. Beyond that, the depth chart gets thin, which seemingly provides an unusual amount of job security for seventh-round draft pick like Walker. If a veteran isn't added between now and September, the final spot could come down to fellow undrafted rookies Tavarres and Quentin Gause out of Rutgers.

Cox, Eagles Win Big With New Contract - PE.com
Defensive line coach Chris Wilson had a message for his room last week as the team's mandatory minicamp ended, and he wanted to make sure he gave the message loud and clear: "I told them," he said, "that the No. 1 thing is that playing great defense starts up front. As we go up front, we go defensively." Having a happy Fletcher Cox sure helps everyone "go" up front for this football team ...

J.J. Watt, Khalil Mack lead 2016's most indispensable defenders - NFL.com
The Eagles stud never gets the credit he deserves, but this multi-talented game wrecker shows his worth on every snap. The 9.5 sacks and three forced fumbles are incredible figures for a defensive tackle, but they don't even begin to tell the story of Cox's total domination. The amount of attention this guy commands helps everyone around him.

Former NBA guard Nate Robinson tried out with the Seahawks - SB Nation
He's 32 and had major knee surgery a couple of years ago, but Robinson is still going to try to fulfill his dream of playing in the NFL.
