Who's the next Romo or Cutler -- in the broadcasting booth? - ESPN
Malcolm Jenkins has a future in broadcasting if that's the route he decides to go. He has been working on his craft, too, with appearances on ESPN and elsewhere. The proud owner of a designer men's suit store and bow tie line, Jenkins certainly has the wardrobe for television. All the ingredients are there; it's just a matter of whether he wants to delve into the media world along with all his other passions. -- Tim McManus

Mitch Mania - Iggles Blitz
Brian Mitchell played for the Eagles for three years, 2000-2002. If I’m picking my all-time favorite Eagles, Mitch is the returner. I loved that guy. If you’re an older fan, watch this video for a great trip down memory lane. If you’re younger, educate yourself on the greatness of Brian Mitchell.

DBs coach Cory Undlin breaks down Eagles' cornerbacks - CSN Philly
On Sidney Jones: "There's a lot that stood out on his tape. Competitiveness, effort, change of direction, ball skills, he can find it down the field, which is obviously imperative for us. I like everything about him. The guy's a good player. Great control of his body, violent in and out of his breaks, guy plays with his hair on fire. He checks off all the boxes. Smart kid, asks a lot of questions, which is exactly what I expected him to do. The difference in my mind between good corners and the ones that are not just good but like really good — great — are the ones that when the wide receiver stops, they stop. And when the wideout goes down and gets out, the corner, with a little bit of awareness and anticipation, can hopefully go down and hopefully match that angle and not have circles and all that other stuff. His ability to drop his body and get his feet in the ground and come out with violence and efficiency, it's special."

NFL games will no longer feature those awkward erectile dysfunction drug commercials - SB Nation
NFL broadcasts are definitely going to better in 2017 than they have been in a long time. How do I know this with the season still more than two months away? Because the endless ads for boner pills will no longer be lurking at every commercial break encouraging you to ask your doctor how you, dear older man, can get better at throwing a football through a tire or emasculating those of us who don’t have twin bathtubs in the backyard.
