Eagles “stay or go” final results

New, comments

The fans speak.

Washington Redskins v Philadelphia Eagles

Now that BGN’s “stay or go” series is finally over, let’s take a look back at the results. Here’s how Philadelphia Eagles fans voted on players, coaches, and executives.

QUARTERBACK - [REVIEW]

CARSON WENTZ

Even full well knowing that the Eagles aren’t moving on from Wentz, a vocal minority still wants him gone.

NICK FOLES

There’s obviously going to be some sentimental voting here but there’s virtually zero chance Foles is back with Philly in 2019.

NATE SUDFELD

Sudfeld is set to be a restricted free agent but the Eagles will likely tender him at a second-round level. He’ll likely be Wentz’s backup in 2019.

RUNNING BACK - [REVIEW]

WENDELL SMALLWOOD

Smallwood is probably going to make the roster as a third or fourth back once again, isn’t he?

JOSH ADAMS

Adams had a solid year for an undrafted rookie free agent but I don’t know that his roster spot for 2019 is already guaranteed.

COREY CLEMENT

The Eagles were high on Clement heading into 2018. Maybe he’ll back to 2017 form with an offseason to get healthy. Hopefully.

DARREN SPROLES

I think the coaching staff would love to have Sproles back while the front office is more hesistant to re-sign him.

JAY AJAYI

The Jay Train is a free agent but he might not have much of a market, which could lead him back to Philly.

BOSTON SCOTT

Scott will have to earn a roster spot in training camp.

DONNEL PUMPHREY

I’m not sure how Benjamin Solak managed to vote 563 times.

WIDE RECEIVER - [REVIEW]

NELSON AGHOLOR

The Eagles have a real interesting decision to make on Agholor. I feel like there’s no way he’s back at his current $9.4 million cap number. Do they extend his contract? Try to trade him? Let him go?

ALSHON JEFFERY

Alshon is the man.

JORDAN MATTHEWS

JMatt had a good 2018 season as a role player. Methinks he’s going to look for a bigger role with a new team in free agency.

GOLDEN TATE

I’m a little surprised the “stay” vote is this high. I really don’t think Tate is going to be back and that’s quite OK.

MIKE WALLACE

I think the Eagles should have some level of interest in bringing Wallace back. He was hurt last year, yeah, but prior to that he had only missed two games in nine seasons combined.

SHELTON GIBSON

It’s disappointing that the Eagles’ 2017 fifth-round pick hasn’t been able to take on a bigger role by now. Maybe his third year will be the charm, but ... we’ll believe it when we see it.

MACK HOLLINS

It’d be real nice if Hollins can stay healthy and be productive in 2019.

BRAXTON MILLER

This is pretty favorable for a practice squad player. Some intrigue here.

DORREN MILLER

“Who?”

JOHNNY HOLTON

Probably won’t amount to anything but hey, he’s fast! 22.9 career yards per reception.

MARKEN MICHEL

Could be fighting for a practice squad spot.

CARLTON AGUDOSI

This 6-6, 205 pounder is basically the new Ifeanyi Momah.

TIGHT END - [REVIEW]

ZACH ERTZ

224 people believed there was “Too Much Ertz” in 2018.

DALLAS GOEDERT

98 people just can’t get over Goedert’s first name.

JOSHUA PERKINS

I’m good.

RICHARD RODGERS

Seems like a no-brainer to bring Dick Rod back as a third tight end / special teams contributor / emergency long snapper.

WILL TYE

He’ll try to compete for TE3.

OFFENSIVE TACKLE - [REVIEW]

LANE JOHNSON

One of the highest approval ratings on the entire roster, as it should be.

JASON PETERS

It’s not ideal but the Eagles need JP back in 2019.

HALAPOULIVAATI VAITAI

Acceptable as a swing tackle, unacceptable as a 16-game starter protecting Wentz’s blindside.

JORDAN MAILATA

One of the most popular seventh-round picks you’ll see after one season.

MATT PRYOR

The Eagles’ next Allen Barbre?

TYREEK BURWELL

You’re probably thinking I made this name up.

OFFENSIVE GUARD - [REVIEW]

BRANDON BROOKS

Hopefully he’ll be healthy for the start of 2019.

STEFEN WISNIEWSKI

Wis has to be one of the most popular backup guards in the league.

ISAAC SEUMALO

Not as popular as Wis but he’ll be starting in 2019.

CHANCE WARMACK

Bye.

KALEB JOHNSON

Camp body.

CENTER - [REVIEW]

JASON KELCE

Please don’t retire.

ANTHONY FABIANO

This year’s Jon Toth.

DEFENSIVE END - [REVIEW]

BRANDON GRAHAM

Man, it’ll be tough to see BG sign with another team. Hopefully the Eagles can find a way to bring him back.

MICHAEL BENNETT

The Eagles’ best edge player in 2018.

CHRIS LONG

Walter Payton Man of the Year. The Eagles need to keep at least one of BG or Long.

DEREK BARNETT

Hope to see the Eagles’ 2017 first-round pick take another step forward in 2019. The pressure is on with BG and/or Long potentially not returning.

JOSH SWEAT

There’s upside here but Sweat still has a lot to prove.

DAESHON HALL

Hall will compete for a fifth defensive end spot.

JOE OSTMAN

The coaching staff seems to like him. Is he anything more than a practice squad player, though?

DEFENSIVE TACKLE - [REVIEW]

FLETCHER COX

Whoever voted ‘go’ is now banned. I’m serious.

HALOTI NGATA

I’m assuming he’s going to retire.

TREYVON HESTER

Long live The Double Doink hero!

BRUCE HECTOR

Meh.

TIMMY JERNIGAN

He’s going to need to take a significant pay cut to stay with the Eagles. Hopefully the two sides can come to an agreement.

LINEBACKER - [REVIEW]

NIGEL BRADHAM

Lots of love for Bradham despite the fact he didn’t have a stellar season.

JORDAN HICKS

I’m not expecting Hicks to be back, based on what I’ve heard, but maybe he’ll re-sign with Philly if his market fails to materialize.

KAMU GRUGIER-HILL

KAMUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

NATHAN GERRY

Not sure he’s ideally anything more than a backup LB/special teams guy.

LAROY REYNOLDS

Had three special teams penalties last season.

D.J. ALEXANDER

Designated special teams player who dealt with injury issues in 2018.

B.J. BELLO

Could conceivably replace Reynolds or Alexander in 2019.

PAUL WORRILOW

The Eagles re-signed him to a one-year deal. Has a solid chance to make the roster as a backup.

ASANTAY BROWN

The Eagles bothered to keep him on the practice squad for most of the year despite the fact he essentially missed the entirety of training camp due to injury.

ALEX SINGLETON

This CFL tackling machine could be a feel-good story in preseason.

CORNERBACK - [REVIEW]

RASUL DOUGLAS

SUUUUUUUL could be an opening day starter in 2019.

RONALD DARBY

Based on what I’ve heard, I wouldn’t totally shut the door on Darby returning. Logic would tell me he’ll get a bigger offer on the market than what Philly can afford, though.

AVONTE MADDOX

Maddox showed real intriguing potential as a rookie. Where will the coaching staff line him up moving forward?

JALEN MILLS

The coaching staff (see: Jim Schwartz) loves Mills so he’s not going anywhere. It remains to be seen when exactly he’ll be over his foot injury, though.

CRE’VON LEBLANC

Strap is the early favorite at start at nickel cornerback in 2019.

SIDNEY JONES

After only playing in 28% of possible games so far, Jones has a lot to prove.

CHANDON SULLIVAN

Liked what I saw from him in training camp/preseason but he clearly wasn’t ready for NFL action when called upon.

JOSH HAWKINS

Hawkins is the answer to the trivia question: “Which cornerback were the Eagles forced into playing in their 2019 Divisional Round game against the Saints?”

JEREMIAH MCKINNON

It’s hard to me to look at this name and not think of former Vikings and current 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon. I mean, you could call both of them “Jerry McKinnon.”

MERCY MASTON

Cool name but this CFL signing is probably just a camp body.

ELIE BOUKA

The Eagles kept him on IR all year so maybe they like something about him?

SAFETY - [REVIEW]

MALCOLM JENKINS

Dude played every snap in 2018. Warrior.

COREY GRAHAM

Time to call it a career.

TRE SULLIVAN

Will compete for a backup safety role. Not a roster lock.

RODNEY MCLEOD

The Eagles lowered McLeod’s 2019 cap number from $9.9 million to $4.8 million.

DEIONDRE’ HALL

He really only played special teams for the Eagles in 2018. Maybe they think he can have a bigger role on defense with a full offseason to learn the scheme?

CHRIS MARAGOS

Might be time for the 32-year-old to retire after two straight knee surgeries.

KICKER - [REVIEW]

JAKE ELLIOTT

Elliott is an exclusive-rights free agent, which means the Eagles will give him a minimum offer and he’ll accept it.

PUNTER - [REVIEW]

Great power but could afford to improve his directional punting.

LONG SNAPPER - [REVIEW]

RICK LOVATO

Lovato is set to be a free agent. The Eagles should sign him to a multi-year contract.

HEAD COACH - [REVIEW]

DOUG PEDERSON

Dougie P is here to stay.

OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR - [REVIEW]

MIKE GROH

If the offense struggles in 2019, Groh could be gone.

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR - [REVIEW]

JIM SCHWARTZ

Keeping Schwartz was an easy call.

SPECIAL TEAMS COORDINATOR - [REVIEW]

DAVE FIPP

The Fipp man oversaw an average special teams unit in 2018.

EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF FOOTBALL OPERATIONS - [REVIEW]

HOWIE ROSEMAN

Roseman needs to be better than he was last offseason. There’s reason to believe he can be.

CHAIRMAN AND CEO - [REVIEW]

JEFFREY LURIE

Lurie has the big picture pieces looking right.
