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

Jabar Gaffney denies vandalizing Lito Sheppard’s car - PFT
Former NFL players Jabar Gaffney and Lito Sheppard played together in high school and at the University of Florida, but any friendship that may have existed between the two men has soured over the years. Sheppard was at dinner at a restaurant in Jacksonville Beach, Florida last week and left to find that his car had been vandalized while he was eating. Sheppard watched surveillance video taken by the restaurant and, per a police report, found that he recognized Gaffney and his girlfriend as the vandals.

Eagles among NFL leaders in 30-plus year old positional players - PhillyVoice
The Philadelphia Eagles have their fair share of older players, as they now have 10 players who are 30 years of age or older. In fact, only the Oakland Raiders (14) and the New Orleans Saints (11) have more players on their rosters who are currently over the age of 30.

Character Matters - Iggles Blitz
One of the reasons the Eagles went so aggressively after Carson Wentz is that they trusted him as a person. I can’t stress enough just how critical that is for a franchise. If you are going to pay someone $20M to $30M per year and make him the face of your franchise, you need that guy to “clean”. He doesn’t have to be a saint, but you don’t want to be worrying about whether he’s going to get into trouble or be accused of something bad. You must trust the guy. Wentz has been great in that regard. You couldn’t ask for a better guy. Beyond legal/illegal situations, you can see that Winston has some maturity issues. If you watched Hard Knocks last summer, you saw Winston doing and saying some strange things, on and off the field. Bill Parcells used to preach that the QB cannot be the class clown. Winston hasn’t learned that lesson.

Veterans on the roster bubble for all 32 NFL teams - ESPN
Running back Wendell Smallwood. The former fifth-round pick has flashed at times over his first two pro seasons, but injuries and inconsistency have held him back. Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement and Darren Sproles hold the top three roles in Philadelphia. Smallwood will be fighting it out with the likes of Donnel Pumphrey and Matt Jones for a roster spot this summer.

Inside The Studio: Carson Wentz -
Last week, quarterback Carson Wentz joined Dave Spadaro in studio to discuss his recovery as well as what he has been up to during the offseason.

Eagles mailbag: Moving Rasul Douglas, keeping Donnel Pumphrey - NBC Sports Philadelphia
I don’t think so. Pumphrey looked a little better this spring, but he better have a great training camp. Right now, I have the Eagles keeping four running backs: Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles, Corey Clement, Matt Jones. If they keep five, Pump has a real chance; he’d just need to beat out Wendell Smallwood for that final spot. I think he has a decent chance, but I haven’t seen enough to give him a roster spot. He’s a player I’ll be watching extremely close at training camp.

Which pain-in-the-butt receiver would you pick: Terrell Owens or Chad Ochocinco? - SB Nation
The mid-2000s gave the NFL plenty of new trends, ranging from the emergence of the Patriot Way to the six-week period where the Wildcat revolutionized offenses before imploding in on itself like a dying star. The best of these, or at least the most entertaining, was the era of the petulant wide receiver. No one embodied that more than Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco, nee Johnson, two bombastic sigils of stardom and celebration. Ochocinco had seven 1,000-yard seasons in an 11-year career somehow more notable for over-the-top touchdown celebrations and a mid-career name change. Owens, the recent Hall of Fame inductee — even if he’s not interested in attending — finished his career as a top-five wide receiver but is just as known for his play off the field as he is on it.
