Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...
Here are all of Eagles TE Dallas Goedert’s targets in 2018, with analysis - PhillyVoice
Normally, when we do analyses like these, it’s pretty easy to find a handful of negatives on a player. With Goedert, I couldn’t find any recurring issues. He’s going to be a really good player, and it’ll be malpractice if he doesn’t play substantially more in 2019.
Eagles Question of the Day: If the Eagles franchise wasn’t an option, which team would you root for? - BGN
So, this one could get interesting.. There are 32 teams in the NFL, but what if the Philadelphia franchise was no longer an option as our team of choice?
Making It Count - Iggles Blitz
The current Eagles team is getting a lot of hype. Expectations are going to be sky high. I don’t know if this bunch will be able to deliver another Super Bowl. One thing I do know is that they won’t have the pressure of trying to be the first Eagles team to get the Lombardi. The 2017 bunch took care of that. Just go play and win. And we’ll see what happens.
It’s the Heart of the NFL Offseason, and Anthony Lynn Is Making the Most of It - MMQB
Zach was in France for six of the USWNT’s seven matches, cheering the ruthless defensive midfielder on her way to a second World Cup title. Other than his social media posts, though, the Eagles tight end kept a pretty low profile, declining interview requests while he was in France because he did not want to take any of the focus off of Julie’s accomplishments. After the United States’ win, former Eagles WR Torrey Smith posted congratulations to Julie, “the best athlete in the house,” which is hard to argue. In the opinion of MMQB executive editor Mark Mravic, a noted soccer aficionado, Julie was “the U.S.’s most important player” in this World Cup.
Building The Perfect NFL Tight End - The Draft Network
Contested Catch - Zach Ertz. Zach Ertz’s career year in 2018 was highlighted by his 116 receptions. Thriving up the seam, he’s dominant winning over linebackers and safeties. His combination of body control and strong hands has translated to redzone production and winning in tight spots at all times.
Indy GM Chris Ballard on Scouting and the Power of Sundays - FMIA
A quick aside: Frank Reich is tremendous on draft day. He has a lot of faith in our scouting group and allows us to work. He will also give us his opinion and allows our scouts to challenge him. His open mindedness really is special.
Predicting Where Top Remaining NFL Free Agents Will Sign - B/R
RB Jay Ajayi: Los Angeles Rams — Jay Ajayi is productive when he’s healthy and on the field. But organizations should be wary of his injury history. Prior to the last campaign, Ajayi led all backs in the Pro Football Focus era with the highest percentage of yards gained after contact. The 223-pound back is physical and always finishes his runs. He’s going to get every single yard available to him. Unfortunately, the rugged running style impacts his physical health. Since 2017, the 26-year-old has missed 14 games. Ajayi suffered a torn ACL in Week 5 against the Minnesota Vikings after starting three games for the Philadelphia Eagles. As long as a team is comfortable with Ajayi’s recovery and medical evaluation, he can be a valuable addition to any backfield.

Frank Gore, 36, will keep playing until he feels he can’t do it anymore - Sun-Sentinel
Longtime NFL running back Frank Gore, who played with the Miami Hurricanes in college and last season with the Dolphins, still doesn’t have imminent plans of retiring, even at 36 and playing a punishing position. Gore, now a member of the Buffalo Bills and who ranks fourth on the NFL’s all-time rushing list, will not go into the upcoming season with the idea it’ll be his last. “I just go how I feel,” said Gore at his football and cheer camp in his hometown neighborhood of Coconut Grove in south Miami-Dade County on Saturday. “If I feel I can’t do it no more, then I call it.”
