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

NFL’s Dallas Goedert Punch Suspect Pleads Not Guilty In Assault Case - TMZ Sports
The man accused of sucker punching Dallas Goedert in the face at a bar last month is officially fighting back in his assault case — pleading NOT GUILTY to the charges Friday, a court official tells TMZ Sports. 30-year-old Kyle Hadala allegedly clocked the Philadelphia Eagles tight end during a bar brawl on June 19 in South Dakota ... and the video of the incident did NOT look good for Hadala.

With Jason Peters signing, Eagles put tough questions on Andre Dillard - BGN
So the Eagles have a Dillard problem, and they may or may not be trying to solve it with Peters — but it definitely looks like it, even if they won’t admit it. That’s likely the read that Dillard has on the situation, and if the Eagles’ didn’t intend to send him a message, he’s going to react to it anyway. If he does pull through and improve, all the more power to him — the Eagles desperately need him to hit, given the luxury they’ve enjoyed of having an elite offensive line for the duration of QB Carson Wentz’s young career. And if he doesn’t, then we’ll be seeing Jason Peters back at left tackle again at some point this season.

Eagles 2020 training camp preview: Wide receiver - PhillyVoice
In June, Doug Pederson was asked if WR Jalen Reagor would be cross-trained, like J.J. Arcega-Whiteside was as a rookie during the 2019 season. “It’s the hardest thing we are dealing with with our younger players is not having the grass time in the off-season with phase two and phase three,” Pederson said. “But right now, he’s going to come in and he’s going to learn one position and he is going to learn from DeSean Jackson, and learn everything he can. Obviously the playbook is extensive and we just have to see what he’s taken from the off-season to training camp, and then once we see his potential and his growth, then we can use him in multiple spots. “But one of the things that all of our receivers really have the capability of doing is moving inside, whether they are an outside guy going inside or an inside guy going outside. We’ll keep him at one position to start and we’ll grow from there.” Of course, that doesn’t mean that Reagor will only play if Jackson isn’t on the field. If he shows that he can make plays, the Eagles’ staff will find ways to get the ball in his hands.

Eagles’ 2021 salary cap outlook could get much worse: NFLPA projects potential $70 million loss per team due to coronavirus pandemic -
Smith said he estimates that if there’s a “dramatic drop in revenue this year” that there could be losses of approximately $70 million per team and would see the 2021 salary cap drop all the way to $120 million, a steep drop from 2020′s $198.2 million cap ceiling. The NFLPA has preached spreading out the losses throughout several years, as opposed to simply taking a one-year hit next offseason. If the league were to lay the entire loss on next offseason, several teams would need to cut droves of high-priced players. The Eagles have $267.3 million committed to next year’s salary cap, according to ESPN’s Field Yates. That total is the most in the league by a wide margin.

Why Jason Peters is not a Hall of Fame lock - NBCSP
If Peters can change positions at 38 years old and stay healthy and the Eagles have a good season, with his reputation and name recognition and popularity throughout the league, he could definitely rack up that 10th Pro Bowl. The one that makes him a lock. It doesn’t hurt that one of the perennial NFC Pro Bowl guards — Brandon Brooks, the J.P. is replacing – is out for the year, which opens up a spot. J.P. may have done enough right already. I sure look at him as a Hall of Famer. One more elite year, one more Pro Bowl season makes him a lock. And honestly I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t do it.

Eagles honor fans with launch of Broad & Pattison Winc wine collection -
To celebrate Eagles fans everywhere and the special bond the team has shared with them for generations, the Philadelphia Eagles have launched “Broad & Pattison,” a collection of wines inspired by the team and thoughtfully crafted by Winc, a leading producer in the wine industry. All three distinct, handmade varieties – 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2019 Chardonnay, 2019 Rosé – are available for $17.99 through local wine retailers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, and online at A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Eagles Autism Foundation.

There are now odds for Dak Prescott’s team in Week 1 of 2021 regular season and they’re interesting - Blogging The Boys
The Indianapolis Colts would be rather fascinating considering their head coach, Frank Reich, is renowned for his work with quarterbacks specifically. He is heralded as one of the reasons that Carson Wentz elevated his game to another level in 2017. Of course it would be interesting if Dak ended up in Minnesota and replaced Kirk Cousins when it was Cousins who paved the way for a quarterback to take the franchise tag to the ultimate level. These are all hypothetical, of course, and the Dallas Cowboys still have a lot of say in the matter.

Quarterbacking in silence: How might that impact Giants’ Daniel Jones? - Big Blue View
What will this quiet do for the offenses, and the quarterback? I asked Tony Racioppi, the smartest person I know when it comes to the QB position. Here’s what he had to say: “I think it will only benefit QBs, especially the veteran ones. Ability to use snap counts to keep [the defensive line] off balance and manipulate secondary. Communication is huge and will be a lot easier to check in and out of plays vs looks using both words and hand signals. I think third down and Red Zone will be easier to execute on road because that’s when crowds are loudest. Offense is about communication, rhythm, timing, execution. All things that should improve without crowds.” That should make life easier on quarterbacks, including Jones.

ESPN’s Jeff Darlington critical of Redskins leadership - Hogs Haven
Darlington spoke of his long experience reporting on all 32 teams in the league, and began by clarifying that he wasn’t able to personally speak to the allegations of sexual harassment of women, but went on to discuss the leadership of the franchise. At one point, Darlington said that it was “certainly not going to come as a surprise to many people who cover the organization; whether it’s local media or lower level members of the organization, they simply have not been treated well for years in that building, and unless something is changed by Dan Snyder, that will continue to happen.” Darlington was certainly not pulling any punches, as his entire report focused on owner Dan Snyder and his personal style of leadership.

Clarifying the 2020 injured reserve/COVID-19 rules - PFT
Our recent item regarding expanded use of injured reserve with the ability to return was partially correct, and partially not. Now that the full document containing all details of the league’s offer to the NFL Players Association has been obtained by PFT, we can spell out exactly how injuries and COVID-19 diagnoses would be handled in 2020. The procedures previously explained actually would apply to injured reserve generally. Every team would have the ability to return an unlimited number of players to the active roster following placement on injured reserve or the non-football injury/illness list.

With camp 10 days away, NFL and players at odds over testing, preseason, money - The Athletic
There’s one thing the NFL and its workforce of about 2,000 players know for sure about the league’s plan to return to work amid that coronavirus pandemic: All players are expected to report to training camp on July 28. That became clear to members of the NFL Players Association late Thursday, after calling an emergency virtual meeting with team doctors from across the NFL. “The doctors on the call last night, with a few reservations, said they believe it is safe to open training camp. They gave their medical opinion it was safe to open training camp, and that’s where we are,” NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said Friday. But what exactly training camps and the regular season will look like, and what the financial fallout for 2021 and beyond will be, remains remarkably unclear, as the union and the league continue to work through health and safety protocols and negotiate the economic implications of attempting to play games while COVID-19 cases continue to rise across much of the country.
