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

Phillies will take a peek at Tim Tebow, mostly out of curiosity - CSN Philly
The Phillies will send a scout to watch Tim Tebow’s baseball showcase next Tuesday in Los Angeles. Now, before you start clearing a space in your closet for a red-pinstriped Tebow jersey — you know, right next to the midnight green Tebow jersey — keep this in mind: the Phillies, and every other team that stops by Tebow’s workout, are merely practicing due diligence by taking a look at an accomplished athlete who long ago showed some baseball aptitude. Tebow’s chances of ever playing in a major-league game are extremely thin.

Nigel Bradham Has Preliminary Hearing Wednesday - Birds 24/7
Nigel Bradham has a preliminary hearing tomorrow in Miami for his assault charge, which stems from his arrest for allegedly beating up a hotel employee. However, Bradham doesn’t have to attend the hearing in person and he doesn’t expect a quick resolution, Les Bowen of the Daily News tweeted. "It’s still an ongoing investigation right now, so I can’t really speak too much," Bradham said. "I think everything will work out."

"There’s a lot of ways to utilize that," said Reich. "In Kansas City, in Doug’s offense they’ve done that in the past, and we’ll continue to mix in some other things that we’ve all done, that our staff has done to kind of isolate backs and get good matchups. But when you have a guy like 43 out there, every week in game planning, it’s like, ‘How can we get this guy the football?’ He’s that kind of a player."

Good Stuff From Schwartz - Iggles Blitz
Schwartz also went on a tangent about veteran players in regard to Tulloch. This was really great to hear. Schwartz talked about how he had great respect and admiration for players who lasted in the league for 10 years. That doesn’t happen by accident. You don’t play for a decade just based on talent or even effort. You don’t last that long due to scheme fit. You have to have a combination of things that keeps your career going that long. That seems like a fairly obvious, simple point. But I think too often we underestimate just how impressive longevity is in the NFL (and all professional sports). Stephen Tulloch isn’t going to the Hall of Fame. Nor is Brent Celek. Or Jon Dorenbos. That shouldn’t diminish the accomplishment of staying in the league for a decade (or more) and playing at a high level for most, if not all, of that time.

"First off, I think Jordan Hicks is a real good player. He's very smart, he has a lot of ability, great range, he can run a lot," Tulloch said. "I give him wisdom. I just talk to him. I'm not here to step on anybody's toes. I'm going to go out there, I'm going to work hard every day. Those guys can follow my lead, or if they can outdo me, then they outdo me . . . Nothing to take away from those guys - and I know they have a lot of ability and a lot of young talent in that room - but I'm going to work."

Sam Bradford never looked better. Really, how many quarterbacks have ever looked better than on the late August night last summer when Bradford completed all 10 of his passes for three touchdowns as the Eagles routed Green Bay at Lambeau Field ...

Marcus Smith feels he 'can't be stopped' in Jim Schwartz's defense - NJ.com
The Eagles' first-round draft choice in 2014 is fighting not only to shake the 'bust' label but for a roster spot with just two preseason contests remaining. However, after a strong showing against the Pittsburgh Steelers that included an impressive get-off move that led to a sack, Smith isn't worried about potentially being on the roster bubble. "I wouldn't say that," Smith said prior to Tuesday's practice at the NovaCare Complex, when asked if he feels as though it's make it or break it time for him. "I'm just going in just to play the game. I don't think about those things because if you think about things that you can't control, you tend not to think about the things that you're supposed to do."

Howie Roseman says the Eagles outspent everybody to win back stability - CBS Sports
In the aftermath of their bitter divorce with Chip Kelly, and in the shambles of what became a lost 2015 season, the Philadelphia Eagles knew they had to rebuild on multiple levels. They had to add some veteran pieces to try to stabilize the team in the short term -- even while knowing some of those players might be gone by the time the franchise truly turns the corner -- and also made a decision to re-invest deeply in what remained of their young core, extending those players far into the future.

Week 2 preseason grades, NFC: Dak Prescott, P.J. Williams shine - NFL.com
Isaac Seumalo, guard. Lane Johnson's impending 10-game suspension has forced the Eagles to reshuffle the deck on the offensive line. With Allen Barbre vacating his normal starting spot to replace Johnson at right tackle, Seumalo started at left guard against the Steelers on Thursday with an opportunity to win the job with a strong performance. The third-round pick didn't quite seal the deal on the gig, due to a costly holding penalty and a few failed finishes, but he did flash some strength and power moving defenders off the ball.

2016 KUBIAK vs. ADP: The Underrated - Football Outsiders
Ertz was a top-10 fantasy tight end last year despite catching only two touchdowns, a flukishly low number for a player who gained more than 800 yards receiving. We think he'll top 800 yards again in 2016, and if he does, he's almost certain to score more often.
