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

Should Eagles make a play for Richard Sherman? - ESPN
There are several factors, though, that stand in the way of an Eagles-Sherman union. A big one is money. Per the NFLPA, the Eagles have under $2 million in salary cap space at the moment. That's a rather large issue, considering Sherman is set to make $11.4 million this season. (He's under contract for two more years, with a base salary of $11 million in 2018). Even if you package a player or two (Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks is on the block and would offer close two $2 million in relief, for example) or try to restructure Sherman's contract, it would be very difficult to make the math work, even for a front office that is very gifted at doing just that.

Moving Up? - Iggles Blitz
Last year the Eagles had to pay a king’s ransom to move up. They won’t be making a move like that this year. I do wonder if the Eagles could call up the Buffalo Bills and talk. Sean McDermott needs good LBs. His projected starter at WLB is Ramon Humber. The Eagles could offer him Mychal Kendricks. I think Kendricks would be a player that McDermott could love. He would instantly be the most athletic LB on that roster and would be a big help to their Nickel and Dime packages. Would adding a player like that be worth moving back 4 spots? The Eagles are going to have good choices at pick 14. They would be even better up at number 10. The Eagles could also talk to the Saints about a swap involving Kendricks to get to pick 11.

Grading Howie Roseman's 2011 draft - Inquirer
Howie Roseman’s second draft as GM produced netted the Eagles 11 picks a year after they totaled a whopping 13. He was given more control over the crafting and implementing of the process. Nonetheless, Andy Reid still did retain final say over personnel and was as involved in the first two picks as anyone. The class was one of the worst in team history.

No 'Off' Season For Eagles Coaching Staff -
This is not all on Howie Roseman and Joe Douglas and the Eagles’ player personnel department. The coaching staff is very much involved in the team’s preparation for the April 27-29 NFL Draft. Even though there are no games being played, the coaching staff is busy with the information-gathering part of the business in this first week of April ...

5 Players Who Make Sense For Eagles In Round One - CBS Philly
John Ross is a 5-11, 190-pound freakishly fast wide receiver. He set a record running a 4.22 40-yard dash at the NFL combine. Ross turns 23 in November. At Washington, Ross caught 81 balls for 1,150 yards and 17 touchdowns last season. With the additions of Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffery this offseason, combined with Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor, and Dorial Green-Beckham, some may feel Ross may not be needed. However, J-Matt is in the final year of his deal, Agholor and DGB cannot be counted on long-term, and Smith is sort of an unknown at 28 coming off of his worst season. Ross would provide the Eagles with a cheap, long-term deep threat.

A Richard Sherman trade just doesn't add up for Eagles - CSN Philly
Should the Eagles trade a pick or picks in 2017 NFL Draft for Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman? Perhaps a more apt question is Can the Eagles trade for Richard Sherman? Because while Howie Roseman has once again proven himself a magician with the salary cap, there are a number of hoops to jump through before taking on Sherman's $11.43 million salary this season.

The Biggest Draft Need for All 32 NFL Teams - The Ringer
This might be the most obvious need for any team in the NFL: Both of Philly’s starters at cornerback, Leodis McKelvin and Nolan Carroll, are gone. That leaves Jalen Mills, who’s still a work in progress, and Ron Brooks, who is coming off a ruptured quad tendon and just took a pay cut. The signing of Patrick Robinson is nothing more than a flier on a former first-round pick — he was terrible last year for the Colts — so realistically, the Eagles still need to add two starting-caliber cornerbacks to their roster before the season starts. The good news: It’s a very deep draft year at corner.

Christian McCaffrey may be gone before Eagles are on the clock - EaglesWire
Peter Schrager, senior NFL writer for, reported on Wednesday he’s hearing Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey could go in the first 10 picks of the draft.

Tebow is selling minor-league baseball tickets - PFT
Even if Tim Tebow never legitimately develops and demonstrates the skills necessary to become a major-league baseball player, there’s plenty of money to be made along the way — both for him and whoever puts him on the field. Assigned by the Mets to the single-A Columbia (S.C.) Fireflies, Tebow brings with him the kind of star power that sells tickets.
