The Agholor Sexual Assault Investigation Is Now With the D.A.’s Office - Birds 24/7
The investigation into sexual assault allegations involving Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor is now in the hands of District Attorney Seth Williams. "The [investigative] package has been sent to the D.A.’s Office for their review," Police Commissioner Richard Ross told Philadelphia magazine on Thursday night. Ross declined to comment further on the case. A 27-year-old dancer at Cheerleaders Gentleman’s Club accused the 23-year-old wide receiver of raping her inside the club earlier this month. Agholor’s attorney, Fortunato "Fred" Perri Jr., has maintained that Agholor did not commit a crime.

Hope for BG - Iggles Blitz
Jim Washburn was a great DL coach, but also an incredible jackass and mean SOB. Some players he loved (Jason Babin, Albert Haynesworth), others not so much. I never got the feeling he was a huge fan of Vinny Curry. It doesn’t sound like he cared much for Graham. There is nothing wrong with being hard on players, but you do need it to help them. If being too hard is counter-productive with that player, change things up. Washburn didn’t know how to do that. Washburn is long since gone and Graham has liked the coaches he’s dealt with since then. His level of play has gotten better, which is crucial. If you complain about a coach hurting your performance, you sure better improve when he’s gone. Graham backed up his words with actions.

Chris Pantale could make the Eagles as a fullback - Inquirer
The unlikeliest Eagle to work with the first-team offense this spring was Chris Pantale, a journeyman tight end who spent workouts and minicamp as the team’s top fullback. If you’re looking for an under-the-radar player to make the Eagles’ 53-man roster, the 26-year-old Boston College product would fit the bill. The Eagles don’t have a fullback on the roster, and coach Doug Pederson expressed interest in keeping a tight end that could fill the role and also contribute on special teams.

Recap: Eagles chat with Jimmy Kempski - PhillyVoice
If there was one concern, and for me it wasn't a huge one, it's that he'll occasionally lock onto a target, stare his down, and throw. It shows up from time to time on tape, and he also had a really bad moment where he did that in minicamp. That won't play in the NFL, but he's smart enough to overcome that, I believe.

Philly leads Week 1 fantasy football defense options - FOX Sports
The Eagles are far and away the best Week 1 streaming option - not because they're all that great, but because the Browns' offense could be the league's biggest dumpster fire. QB Robert Griffin III didn't play in 2015, and hasn't played well since 2012, so we can't expect much. They'll start a rookie wide receiver or two, and lost two starters (C Alex Mack, RT Mitchell Schwartz) from the offensive line. The Eagles are favored by seven points, and signs point to a blowout. The Eagles DST is ranked 16th by the analysts at FantasyPros.com, is coming off the board 17th per the ADP at FantasyFootballCalculator.com, and you should be able to get them in Round 13 or 14 for this juicy matchup. When I rank DSTs for Week 1, the Eagles will probably be atop the list, ahead of the Seahawks, Panthers, Texans, etc.

Juggernaut Index, No. 30: The Philadelphia Eagles - Yahoo
The Eagles hemorrhaged talent at the offensive skill spots during the Chip Kelly years, leaving the team with an unimpressive collection of names atop the depth chart at various positions. Kelly, of course, was fired last December, prior to the season's end. Under new head coach Doug Pederson, Philly will play slower — probably much slower — and place more decision-making and play-changing responsibility on the quarterback. Pederson served as Kansas City's OC from 2013 to 2015, steering an offense that finished 27th, 25th and 21st in total yardage. And again, this year's starting QB is likely to be Sam [profane] Bradford. So yeah, this is kind of a big green mess. Bradford has averaged just 6.5 yards per attempt over his five NFL seasons, completing only 60.1 percent of his throws. He has no exceptional quarterbacking traits by NFL standards, and he's coming off a mostly ugly season. He threw only 19 touchdown passes and 14 picks over 14 games last year, plus he put the ball on the ground 10 times. Not good. But we think he's the guy to open the season...
