Evaluating Carson Wentz: the Importance of Consistency, Context, and Patience - Iggles Blitz
What caused Carson Wentz’s mid-season regression? And what does it mean for his future? A deep dive into the numbers and film reveals both cause for concern and hope for the future [...] Wentz’s yo-yo like rookie season has provided ammunition for his supporters and detractors alike. The former blame Wentz’s regression on outside circumstances: bad wide receiver play, shoddy offensive line, asking Wentz to do too much; while the latter claim that Wentz’s flawed season was a byproduct of Wentz simply being a flawed quarterback. As is often the case, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

If Nigel Bradham’s second year on the field with the Eagles resembles his first, the team will be more than pleased with the two-year, $7-million investment it made in him before last season. In order for that to happen, however, the veteran linebacker must stay out of trouble off the field. He has plenty of incentive to do exactly that after the recent court decision in South Florida that provided him with a path to avoid a criminal record.

Blood clot led to death of former punter Max Runager - ESPN
Former Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers punter Max Runager died from a blood clot stemming from a recent injury, autopsy results reportedly show. Orangeburg County Chief Deputy Coroner Sean Fogle told The Times and Democrat that Runager's injury -- a fractured fibula, according to Max's father, Geb -- occurred at the Runager family home in May when Max tried to get up from a chair using a walker. He fell from his parents' roof in December and suffered a cracked vertebrae, which he apparently refused to have treated.
