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

The Most Attractive NFL Teams - WeAreFanatics
In the City of Brotherly Love, Chase Daniel – the backup quarterback for the Eagles – rings in at the top spot. The team’s division rivals, the New York Giants, also boast some attractive players of their own. Second-year stud Landon Collins cracks the top five, while Rashad Jennings and his physical running style, in addition to his striking good looks, is ranked third on the Giants’ list.

Would the Eagles draft Dalvin Cook (or any running back) in the first round? - PhillyVoice
Dalvin Cook is really good: In the 2015 NFL Draft, the Seminoles lost QB Jameis Winston, RB Karlos Williams, C Cameron Erving, OG Tre' Jackson, OT Bobby Hart, WR Rashad Greene, and TE Nick O'Leary. Cook was the focus of opposing defenses, and he still ran for a ridiculous 7.4 yards per carry. In 2016, Cook continued to pile up big numbers.

An Interesting Question - Iggles Blitz
Here is an interesting Eagles thought experiment. Think about the 2016 Eagles. Imagine you could swap out Julio Jones for Nelson Agholor. Or you could swap out Richard Sherman for Leodis McKelvin. Okay, now throw a glass of water in your face and come back to reality. The question is which player would make the 2016 Eagles better. The team went 7-9 as is. With which player would they have a better record?

Previewing the Eagles' offseason: Wide receivers - Inquirer
One complication is if the Eagles add wide receiver help, Green-Beckham would get pushed down the depth chart, and he’s not a special-teams contributor. It’s tough to have a non-starting wide receiver who doesn’t play special teams, although the Eagles went through 2016 that way. He counts less than $1 million against the salary cap, and there is no guaranteed money.

Making Jump To Elite Level Key For Ertz - PE.com
“Just building that chemistry with Carson, (that’s) first and foremost, being on the same page each and every play against each and every defense. There were times early on when we weren’t necessarily on the same page and it showed in the chemistry that we had and the catches and targets that we had earlier in the year. And then (I’d like to improve on) just consistently blocking. This was the first time I ran 80 or 90 percent of the plays (85.4 percent in the 14 games he played), so just getting comfortable with that, and yards after the catch is always something that hasn’t really come naturally to me in the past, but I’ve watched a lot of film to try to improve that aspect of my game. I think I took a step in the right direction the last couple of weeks.”

Morning Sesh: Three Things The Eagles Should Do This Offseason - PhillyFootballTalk
Without further adieu, here are my three (what’d you think I was going to do five also?) outside-the-box moves the Eagles should make this offseason. 1) Trade up for Leonard Fournette. Outside of Myles Garrett, Fournette is the surest thing in this draft. He’d immediately take a ton of pressure off Carson Wentz, he’s a better running back than Ezekiel Elliott (Suck it Dallas), and he’s falling further than he should in every mock draft – making trading up for him somewhat more reasonable. 2) Get Doug Pederson public speaking lessons. I’m dead f***ing serious. 3) Don’t end up on Hard Knocks.

Four Temple players invited to this year's NFL combine - CSN Philly
Reddick (6-1, 225) is the top prospect among the bunch. While he played defensive end at Temple, Reddick is switching to linebacker as a pro and has already impressed. He was in Mobile, Alabama, for the Senior Bowl and really impressed. The Camden, N.J. native, who played at Haddon Heights, was originally a walk-on at Temple. Now, he could be a first-round pick.

Carson Wentz Is Who He Always Was - QB Mecca
Wentz’s athleticism gives him a high floor in terms of keeping himself clean in a panic and being able to bail the pocket to make plays. Some quarterbacks would crumble in these two situations, but Wentz has enough poise and athleticism to give these types of plays a fighting chance. It’s not a special trait, seeing as most good quarterbacks can do this consistently, but it does lend to Wentz having a high floor as a functional quarterback. Wentz’s best throws are pretty, too. They do not show up often enough (for the myriad of reasons discussed earlier), but when they happen, they are undeniably impressive. Wentz’s arm strength allows him to make throws down the field that threaten defenses and force them to respect the deep ball, giving Wentz easier throws underneath.

T.O. controversy underscores need for Hall of Fame transparency - PFT
I started down the T.O. Hall of Fame time out rabbit hole a week ago due primarily to concerns regarding a lack of transparency in the selection process. After a week of arguments, counterarguments, and a few condescending comments from voters who resent being questioned or criticized by people who don’t know the inner working of the process, I’m back to where I started. Those who criticize the process indeed don’t know the inner workings of the process because the process is kept completely secret. And the T.O. case proves that the time has arrived for transparency.

Only five players make trip to Israel - Yahoo Sports
Only five NFL players arrived on a sponsored trip to Israel after six players decided to skip the goodwill tour due to human rights concerns. The five players arriving Tuesday were Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell, Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Dan Williams, New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan, Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker and Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks, according to The Times of Israel.

Report: Nick Foles’ option not expected to be picked up by Chiefs - Arrowhead Pride
The Kansas City Chiefs have an option on Nick Foles for the 2017 season and it appears they are likely to pass on that option. That’s what many of us have been expecting. This information comes from Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Terrelle Pryor loves the Browns and wants to stay in Cleveland - SB Nation
Terrelle Pryor says he loves being with the Browns, and he wants to stay in Cleveland. That should help the Browns work out a long-term deal with Pryor, Cleveland’s top receiver last season. "I know this is an important month,'' Pryor said via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. "But I do love being with the Browns and like I said before, this thing isn't about joining a different team because a different team's good.” Hue Jackson has earned Pryor’s loyalty, and Jackson is a primary reason Pryor wants to remain with the Browns.
