Former Eagles player to compete on ‘Bachelorette’ - PhillyVoice
A man who used to catch passes for the Philadelphia Eagles will now compete to win Becca Kufrin’s broken heart. Clay Harbor, who played tight end for the Birds from 2010-2012, is one of the contestants on the upcoming season of “The Bachelorette,” according to Reality Steve. Harbor posted a picture of Becca on his Snapchat during the season finale of “The Bachelor” Tuesday with a heart drawn around her.

7 thoughts on what the Torrey Smith for Daryl Worley trade means for the Eagles - BGN
Hollins is the real winner of Smith being gone. He made good things happen whenever his number was called upon in 2017. The 6-4, 221 pound pass catcher has good size and can stretch the field with his speed. The fact that the Eagles hired his former college coach, Gunter Brewer, to be the Eagles’ wide receivers coach bears well for Hollins. I don’t think they’ll just hand Smith’s job to Hollins without competition, but I do think he’ll impress this summer and earn his playing time.

What’s The Next Move For The Eagles? - BGN Radio
James Seltzer & Brandon Gowton go over the long term and short term effects of Michael Bennett being in Philadelphia. Could Michael Bennett be here until he’s 35? Plus, what is next for the Eagles roster? The guys go over what could be coming down the pipeline.

Mega-guide to NFL free agency: Players to know in every category - ESPN
The Eagles are still working on trying to re-sign Patrick Robinson, but he might want to parlay his surprise big season into a trip to the free-agent market. If he does, he’ll wait for the bigger names to sign their eight-figure-a-year deals, then pitch himself as a solid nickel option for a team looking to spend $5 million or $6 million per season.

Biggest beneficiary of Torrey Smith trade - NBC Sports Philadelphia
Midway through the 2017 season, it looked like Mack Hollins was on the verge of replacing Torrey Smith in the Eagles’ receiver rotation. While the big-ticket veteran Smith was struggling – just 15 catches for 221 yards the first nine games of the season – Hollins, the fourth-round rookie from North Carolina, was showing flashes, most notably with that electrifying 64-yard touchdown catch against the Redskins. As it turned out, Smith finally got it together and was solid down the stretch, with 13 for 157 in the postseason, and Hollins only had nine catches for 71 yards the last 11 games of the season. But it was only a matter of time before the Eagles asked Hollins to replace Smith.

Howie Roseman, Chris Long Recognized For Charitable Work At Maxwell Awards - PE.com
There was plenty for the Philadelphia Eagles to celebrate on the field this past season, but there was a lot to like about their work off of it as well. On Friday night at the 81st Annual Maxwell Football Gala, Howie Roseman and Chris Long were each presented with the 2018 Steinberg DeNicola Humanitarian Award - one given to an NFL executive and the other to an active player. Roseman has been a quiet champion in the Philadelphia-area community contributing to a variety of initiatives supporting military and children.

National Defensive Player Of The Year Taron Vincent Could Be Better Than His Dad - CBS Philly
Taron Vincent’s surname should be familiar enough to any ardent Eagles’ fan. Yes, he’s Troy’s son. And yes, he’s a heck of a football player—like his father was. But Taron comes in a different package. It was enough to attract some looks and wide-eyed wonderment each time Taron ran track in middle school. Vincent gradually gained, and then passed each one of the other runners along the curve of the track. The glares also usually came with the question: How could someone that big move that fast?

NFL Trade Agreement Financials - Spotrac
They can’t become official until the new league year (March 14th), but the pending NFL offseason has already seen 10 trade agreements hit the airwaves - and none of them lack luster. The Browns and their $110M cap space decided to burn $30M+ of it by acquiring legitimate playmakers in 3 separate trades, while the Eagles & Rams refuse to rest on the laurels of their successful 2017 campaigns. Stay tuned for what can be assumed as plenty more to come.

Should left guard be a higher priority for Cowboys after the Michael Bennett trade? - Blogging The Boys
On Wednesday a star defensive player for the Seattle Seahawks was traded to an NFC East team. While many thought that this sentence would one day mean Earl Thomas to Dallas (it very well could), what it did mean was Michael Bennett to the Philadelphia Eagles. Howie Roseman has shown that he has no intentions of slowing down his roster-building ways this offseason, and he now has a new pass rusher to show for it. Michael Bennett may be older, but he’s still talented. What’s more, his only sack in December of last season is one that we all remember painfully. When Dallas was trailing by nine against Seattle on Christmas Eve, Bennett bounced outside off of Jonathan Cooper and ran around Byron Bell before he got home on Dak Prescott. So much sigh.

Punter Brad Wing let go by Giants - Big Blue View
Wing struggled in 2017. He averaged 44.1 per punt, 25th out of 33 qualifying punters. The Giants were last in the league at 36.7 net yards per punt. Wing had two punts blocked and was last in the league with only 20 percent of his punts landing inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. Wing was 30th among 33 qualifying punters with 9.5 percent of his punts going for touchbacks.

The 5 O’Clock Club: Farewell to Kirk Cousins - Hogs Haven
Those journalists, analysts and fans (I’ll shorten that to ‘other people’ or ‘others’ from here on out, I think) start with a basic belief: the Redskins are an incompetent organization filled with people that don’t know what they’re doing. For many people, this is dogmatic — a principle that is incontrovertibly true and can’t be questioned. There are writers on this website that subscribe to that dogma. There are certainly readers on this website that subscribe to it. Journalists around the country accept it at face value. I question it for a lot of reasons. I’ll give just a few here to give you a taste of where I’m coming from, though I understand that the acceptance of my views will be akin to a conversation between a committed atheist and a Charismatic Christian — not a lot of open acceptance of opposing views in that room. Anyway, here are three reasons why I don’t think the Redskin front office is totally incompetent.

What will 3-time All-Pro CB Richard Sherman bring to the 49ers? - SB Nation
Richard Sherman wasn’t a free agent for long. Just one day after the Seattle Seahawks released the three-time All-Pro cornerback, Sherman agreed to a three-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Full details of the deal haven’t yet been revealed, but it will reportedly pay Sherman $39 million over three years with a $5 million signing bonus. That’s an impressive haul for a player who acted as his own agent and negotiated the deal in a matter of hours.
