• The Eagles move on from Leodis McKelvin and we pour one out for BLG
• Eagles also asked Jason Peters to take a pay cut - LOL … sure…
• Is there still a possibility that Peters would be gone next year?
• A moderate upgrade in the secondary could improve that pass rush and maybe even boost Vinny Curry’s numbers
• It looks like the Eagles will be very busy this offseason
• 2017 NFL Draft talk: The case for drafting tight end O.J. Howard if he is available
• The Eagles don’t have the luxury of passing on great talent no matter what the position (except for QB)
• Two playmaking TEs is a good thing, but it would be a great thing with Doug Pederson's offense
• We talk about some late round CB/WR prospects:
⁃Ahkello Witherspoon
⁃Channing Stribling
⁃Kevin King
⁃Nate Hairston
⁃Marquez White
Chad Williams
• Do you have any confidence that the Eagles can finally develop some good young corners early or late in the draft? Because they've been really bad at it for a long time.
• We take your questions!
⁃ What projected Day 3 skill player have the highest ceiling and have a chance to become a star?
Mychal Kendricks: Keep him, trade him, or cut him?
⁃ Why does John hate Cooper Kupp so much?
⁃ Who are some players that, regardless of need, the Eagles should absolutely have to draft?
• We talk about the response to Derek Carr’s tweet
