Turron is heading to the NFL Combine! We’ll be having short daily BGNR podcasts on what's going on throughout the week

Ian Rapoport tells us that Kenny Stills market is in the $12M per year range - LOL… no

Antonio Brown signs an extension worth $17M per year over the next four years

How much does Brown’s contract affect Alshon Jeffery’s money and the WR free agent market?

Keyser Soze voice: And just like that Kenny Stills' $12M is gone.

Kenny Britt still makes a lot of sense for the Eagles. He’s not a game changer, but he’s solid and his WR coach is here.

Will the Eagles have to go bargain shopping with receivers and cornerbacks in free agency?

BGN Radio's free agent WR contract predictions:

Alshon Jeffery: $12M - $14M AAV
DeSean Jackson: $10M - $11M AAV
Pierre Garçon: $9M - $10M AAV
Kenny Stills: $8M - $9M AAV
Kenny Britt: $8M - $9M AAV

Mike Mayock has his conference call and now everyone is talking about John Ross and Sidney Jones

Turron’s Guys To Look Out For At The NFL Combine:

Joe Williams

Julie'n Davenport

Sidney Jones

Ahkello Witherspoon

Treston DeCoud

Josh Reynolds

Eagles aren’t looking for a QB but we are still interested in how this QB class starts to shape up - QBs going early would make players fall

We answer your questions!

Which player will the NFL Combine change your mind about the most (good or bad)?

How much will Jason Peters' contract impede the Eagles their free agent signings?

What is your best guess at your own 40 time?

Do the Eagles have to take advantage of free agent signings with Carson Wentz under his rookie contract?

Would you rather go corner and corner in the first two rounds or receiver and receiver?

What are the chance the Eagles add two rookie running backs in this draft?

How many new starters would you guess Eagles have next year on both sides of the ball?

Is it okay to change a grade on a prospect after their Combine performance?

We might have a Draft Twitter vs. Carson Wentz show in the near future…
