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

Reunited with Alshon Jeffery, position coach projects return to form for WR - ESPN
"He and I have a history together, so he knows what I think, and I understand the way that he works and goes about his business," Groh said. "I think the spring that he's had is as good as he's had since maybe 2013. Pleased with where he is physically, mentally I think he is in a good place. He's coming in here and learning a new system and working on the chemistry with Carson [Wentz] and everything like that, but it's been a good spring for him."

10 reasons the Cowboys will be a dumpster fire this season - PhillyVoice
The Packers were missing their best wide receiver, two of their top three corners, the starting running back, and their starting center. The Cowboys, meanwhile, had their full starting lineup and couldn't take care of business, at home. My conclusion here: Chooooooooke! It's almost as if Tony Romo never left the lineup.

More on the Defense and Numbers - Iggles Blitz
The Eagles defense was odd in 2016. It dominated the Steelers and Falcons, two dynamic offenses. The Eagles only gave up 30 or more points once all year. That’s tough to do in today’s NFL. As a point of comparison., Seattle gave up 30 or more twice in the regular season. The flip side is that the Eagles lost five straight games and gave up 26 or more points in every one of those games. And that was with playoff hopes hanging in the balance. Cincy put up 46 points over a 3-game stretch and then scored 32 against the Eagles. There were times when the Eagles struggled against both the run and the pass. There were a couple of blown leads. No matter how you slice it, the defense was good last year. They can (and need to) get better this year.

Eagles Safety Malcolm Jenkins Opens Menswear Store - CBS Philly
For Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, football and fashion go hand and hand. He admits it’s a lot. “I think the biggest thing is I try to get a much stuff done during the offseason,” said Jenkins. And he’s not kidding. His new store “Damari Savile” went from concept to reality in 6 months.

Eagles Better or Worse 2017: Running backs - CSN Philly
The Eagles’ final major offseason addition may also turn out to be their biggest – quite literally. LeGarrette Blount joins Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood in the backfield, giving the offense the big running back fans have been coveting for years. The draft also produced the all-time leader in rushing in NCAA Division I/FBS history, Donnel Pumphrey. There are certainly more and different options in 2017 than there were last season, but does that make the Eagles better? Ryan Mathews was the starter, and while he’s still on the roster for now, all reports point to his departure. Instead, the Eagles appear poised to go with a true running back-by-committee approach, which raises some questions.

Mets G.M. on Tim Tebow: “We recognize this is not a usual circumstance” - PFT
The traditional stats might not seem to merit a promotion, but the Mets are seeing things in Tim Tebow to justify moving him up a level in their minor league system. Despite hitting .220 for the low-A Columbia Fireflies, the Mets promoted him to high-A St. Lucie yesterday.

NFL Shop has no idea where the Washington NFL team is located - SB Nation
There are just 32 teams in the NFL, so it’s really not too difficult to keep track of where each one is located. But NFL Shop, the official merchandise retailer of the National Football League, apparently had no clue that the Washington NFL team was located in Washington, D.C.
