NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The football news cycle is picking up now that the NFL Combine has begun. There were a number of Philadelphia Eagles developments this week so John Stolnis and I got together to talk about them all in this week’s BGN Radio episode (CLICK HERE TO LISTEN). Topics include:

WHAT’S NEXT FOR NICK FOLES

  • The Eagles won’t be using the franchise tag on BDN, as expected
  • Where is Foles going to sign in free agency? Is it really the Jaguars or bust? Will the Giants actually make a play for him?
  • It’s the second straight offseason where no one really tried to trade for Foles. Isn’t it interesting that the NFL doesn’t seem to think he’s very valuable?
  • What’s your level of confidence in Nate Sudfeld as Carson Wentz’s backup? Should the Eagles sign a veteran quarterback?
  • There’s a possibility the Eagles could take a QB in the 2019 NFL Draft.

TAKEAWAYS FROM DOUG PEDERSON AND HOWIE ROSEMAN AT THE NFL COMBINE

  • Doug stressed a key point about Carson Wentz that BLG has been saying since the PhillyVoice report came out
  • Are the Eagles going to bring Jason Peters back? It’s not as clear as it was last year at this time.
  • What’re the Eagles planning at running back?
  • Hopefully Doug wasn’t just giving lip service when saying the coaches want to get Dallas Goedert involved. (Side topic: Is there any sense in trading Zach Ertz?)
  • Changes to the coaching staff and front office.

THE NELSON AGHOLOR DILEMMA

  • The Eagles are “reportedly” open to trading Agholor. Should they? Would they?
  • What exactly do the Eagles have in Nelson Agholor? Just how good is he?
  • Talking about other wide receiver options, such as trading for John Ross.

LOL COWBOYS

  • What is Dallas doing by paying Jason Witten $3.5 million?!

BRANDON GRAHAM IS STAYING IN PHILLY

  • So, we didn’t actually talk about this on the pod because the news broke before we recorded. For all my thoughts on the Graham deal, you can [CLICK HERE].

FINAL THOUGHTS

  • Bryce Harper is a member of the Phillies!
