Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 5/27/16 10:50am ET
Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday, May 25, that competition is open at quarterback in organized team activities. However, QB Mark Sanchez's experience gives him the clear edge over QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch despite not having started a season opener since 2012. Sanchez must perform in training camp to hold the other two young QBs off. If he wins the job, Sanchez must limit turnovers during the season to keep the job.
Huddle Up: With their defense, the Broncos don't need a world-beater at quarterback. And in Gary Kubiak's offense, the quarterback is unlikely to light up the stat sheet with vintage Peyton Manning numbers anyway. If Sanchez can keep the mistakes to a minimum he should be the bridge starter until Lynch is ready, with a modicum of fantasy value to be had given his talented assortment of receivers.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 5/27/16 2:46pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins said the Eagles aren't harboring any ill feelings toward QB Sam Bradford after he skipped the start of the offseason program and demanded a trade. 'But I think right now, barring anything crazy or anything changing over the next few months, I think everybody is very comfortable with Sam and looking forward to him falling into that role,' Jenkins said.
Huddle Up: Despite the offseason backing, Bradford will need to get off to a strong start or the doubts -- and the boos from the Philly faithful -- will set in and eyes will turn to backups Carson Wentz or Chase Daniel.
Rueben Randle - WRPosted 5/26/16 11:12am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle (gall bladder) is fine, according to a source, but he is extremely sore and will be out two to three weeks while he recovers from having his gall bladder removed, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The surgery shouldn't prevent Randle from participating fully in training camp, but he could have used OTAs to get on the same page with his new quarterback, new coaches and new offense.
Rueben Randle - WRPosted 5/24/16 1:43pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle (gallbladder) is out of practice Tuesday, May 24, due to a recent gallbladder surgery.
Huddle Up: Philly's new wideout will miss some OTA time but it isn't anything that should linger any deeper into the offseason.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 5/24/16 1:52pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (illness) is out of practice Tuesday, May 24, due to illness.
Huddle Up: It's only an illness, of course, but it's also a reminder to be wary of counting on anything close to a full season out of Mathews, who only has had one (2013) in his six NFL campaigns so far.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 5/24/16 1:55pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) is doing just about everything the other quarterbacks are doing in organized team activities Tuesday, May 24. Sanchez isn't taking snaps under center, however.
Huddle Up: As expected no (short) or long-term issues are expected to develop from Sanchez and the surgery on the thumb of his non-throwing hand last week.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 5/20/16 1:02pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz said he isn't going to run his routes any differently for QB Sam Bradford than he would for QB Carson Wentz.
Huddle Up: Ertz's reception and yardage numbers have steadily improved in each of his three seasons. But now about those career-low two TD catches last year ...
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 5/19/16 1:39pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews flew to Oklahoma in March to work with QB Sam Bradford, and Matthews is OK with Bradford's trade request earlier in the offseason. 'If I'm cool with it, then everybody should be cool with it,' Matthews said. 'Look, if I want to be here, and I'm happy with it, and we can go out there and just compete, that's all I want to focus on. That's all that matters.'
Huddle Up: Matthews finished with 85 receptions, 997 yards and had eight TD catches for the second straight year, but he fell somewhat short of fantasy expectations, finishing as a low-end WR2. Perhaps a second year with Bradford will provide the needed boost.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 5/17/16 1:17pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles is absent from organized team activities as the team has fielded trade offers for him. The team received calls in the middle of the NFL draft about Sproles, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The soon to be 33-year-old Sproles should have another good change-of-pace season or two left in him, but it's sounding unlikely they will be in Philly, where the post-Chip Kelly purge continues. Stay tuned ...
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 5/12/16 3:38pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has signed his rookie contract, and the four-year deal is worth $26 million with a $17.6 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: The second-overall pick has signed early, allowing himself to hit the ground running and challenge for the starting gig. It will be an intriguing summer in Philly.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 5/9/16 11:20am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford informed team personnel he'll report to offseason workouts Monday, May 9.
Huddle Up: Yay, he's honoring his multi-million dollar contract! The plan in Philly has been for Bradford to start while Carson Wentz gets up to speed in the NFL, so for this year at least Bradford will have a chance to earn that money.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 5/8/16 1:49pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford may report for offseason workouts in the next week or two, according to LB Connor Barwin, who has recently talked with Bradford.
Huddle Up: Everyone is keeping an eye on this volatile situation as Bradford still projects as the starting QB when the Eagles open the season if the two sides can manage to mend their fences.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 5/5/16 12:00pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor was one of the least productive wideouts in the league in 2016. No receiver with as many routes run averaged fewer yards, and only eight receivers with as many targets had a worse defense-adjusted yards above replacement ranking.
Huddle Up: With Jeremy Maclin departing last offseason, the 2015 first-round pick was a high rookie fantasy selection, but his 23-283-1 stat line was beyond disappointing. Agholor's next hurdle, though, might be overcoming the Eagles' suddenly-muddled QB situation.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 5/3/16 12:38pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez still views himself as a starting quarterback and believes Denver drafting QB Paxton Lynch was affirmation of his starting status. 'Absolutely, that's the message I've received,' Sanchez said. 'I'm thrilled with the opportunity.' Sanchez hasn't let Lynch or any potential trades change his focus. 'I just kind of learned with time, who knows what's going to happen and who cares? What are you supposed to do? Meet your teammates, develop a relationship with them, learn the playbook, get involved in the community, that's it, those three things.'
Huddle Up: While Lynch has considerable upside and projects as a good fit for Gary Kubiak's offense, he faces a steeper-than-usual NFL learning curve coming out of Memphis' no-huddle, shotgun attack. And with the only other QB on the roster -- second-year Trevor Siemian -- having only taken one regular-season snap, that leaves the seven-year vet Sanchez as the clear favorite to open as the Broncos' starter. Adjust the Denver pass-catchers accordingly.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 5/1/16 11:08pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has not talked with head coach Doug Pederson since asking for a trade, according to Pederson.
Huddle Up: With a trade more unlikely than ever, this situation in Philly obviously is far from ideal, and eyes will be on Philly's upcoming OTAs -- most notably the mandatory minicamp -- to see if things between Bradford and Pederson can get patched up.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 4/29/16 12:33pm ET
Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch will compete with QB Mark Sanchez and QB Trevor Siemian for the starting job, according to executive vice president John Elway.
Huddle Up: The Broncos have the luxury of developing Lynch behind Sanchez if he's not ready to go as a rookie. However, his college offense had some similarities to the Gary Kubiak offense Denver runs, and with the Broncos' elite defense he only has to be as good as the 2015 versions of Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, so the bar isn't set particularly high.
Carson Wentz - QBPosted 4/28/16 9:38pm ET
The Philadelphia Eagles selected North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz with the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Wentz joins the QB conglomerate in Philly, but likely will spend his rookie season on bench unless Sam Bradford is traded or gets hurt. But, really, what are the odds of either of those happening?
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/26/16 10:31pm ET
The Denver Broncos asked about Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford, according to a prominent league source. According to a league source, the asking price from the Philadelphia Eagles was too high.
Huddle Up: Denver is doing is due diligence with every available QB, but it doesn't sound like Bradford isn't an option going forward.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/26/16 10:45pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is not interested in playing for the San Francisco 49ers and head coach Chip Kelly, according to NFL Network's Jeff Darlington.
Huddle Up: Interesting news after Kelly orchestrated Bradford's trade to Philly a year ago, but the former Oregon and Eagles coach seemingly doesn't have an overabundance of players around the league wanting to play for him.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 4/24/16 5:04pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles could be traded this offseason, in the opinion of NJ.com's Elliot Shorr-Parks. Shorr-Parks views Sproles as a logical and likely trade candidate, with Ryan Mathews and Kenjon Barner set as the two running backs who for sure will make the final roster.
Huddle Up: Sproles will be 33 in June, and while he's not necessarily at the end yet, he was a Chip Kelly acquisition who doesn't necessarily fit into Doug Pederson's new offense in Philly. The Eagles also are likely to add another RB in the draft.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/21/16 10:19am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will remain the starter after the team acquired the No. 2 overall draft pick Wednesday, April 20, according to Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman. 'Let me be clear, Sam Bradford is our starting quarterback,' Roseman said Wednesday. 'We told Sam that. We intend to support him and the moves we made this offseason we believe will give us a chance to compete this season.'
Huddle Up: Having Bradford gives Philly the luxury of bringing their rookie quarterback along slowly. It's a plan that's worked in the past--notably Carson Palmer in Cincinnati--and it's one that Eagles coach Doug Pederson is familiar with: he was the short-term solution after Philadelphia drafted Donovan McNabb and eased him into the lineup.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/21/16 4:44pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is expected to ask to be traded, according to a source, despite executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman stating that Bradford is still the starter. It was previously reported that Bradford is upset with the Eagles' trading up in the NFL Draft for what will likely be a quarterback.
Huddle Up: Hard to blame Bradford as the Eagles continue to send highly-mixed messages on their QB plans, signing Bradford and Chase Daniel to big-money deals one month and the next paying a hefty price to move up and be in position to land one of the draft's top QBs. However, with his new 2-year, $17 million deal, trading Bradford before June 2 reportedly would mean an instant $11 million cap hit for Philly while the acquiring team would have to agree to take on Bradford's contract. And you thought the league's QB drama was dying down ...
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 4/18/16 1:35pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles may miss the minicamp this week due to a family issue.
Huddle Up: Not ideal given that the Eagles have a new coaching staff and will be running a new offense, but Sproles is a veteran so he shouldn't be too far behind when he's able to rejoin the team.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 4/15/16 12:32pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews is a player the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys are interested in if the Eagles make him available. Sources said it's unlikely the Eagles would trade him to a division rival in Dallas or their former head coach Chip Kelly's new team in San Francisco.
Huddle Up: Mathews compiled 685 yards from scrimmage and matched his career high with seven TDs on 127 touches last season while sharing the workload with DeMarco Murray and Darren Sproles. Murray is now with the Titans, leaving Mathews atop the RB depth chart but there are, of course, his lingering durability concerns so don't be surprised if the Eagles draft another back or wind up dealing the former Kelly acquisition.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 4/14/16 9:45am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews said he will play more on the outside during organized team activities.
Huddle Up: The Eagles keep repeating this "Matthews moving outside" mantra; in OTAs we'll get to see if it actually plays out.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 4/5/16 11:17am ET
Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez is holding his annual passing camp Monday, April 4, Tuesday, April 5 and Wednesday, April 6 in California. He will work with Denver wide receivers, tight ends, running backs and QB Trevor Siemian.
Huddle Up: At this juncture Sanchez is the Broncos' starting QB, so any additional work he can get with his new teammates is a benefit.
Rueben Randle - WRPosted 4/1/16 7:25pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Rueben Randle is confident that he'll start in his first season with the Eagles this year. Randle said he's familiar with Philadelphia after playing against them for several years and he's excited to showcase his opportunities.
Huddle Up: Randle will be battling a couple of young holdovers in Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews who are coming off disappointing seasons. Throw in a new coaching staff, and the starting positions are truly up for grabs in Philly.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 3/24/16 10:21am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews will line up outside some in training camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Matthews has taken the vast majority of his snaps in the slot, but with Philly adjusting their offense there's no better time for him to expand his horizons. And the more he moves around the tougher he'll be for defenses to track, so assuming Matthews has no problem learning multiple roles this is a good thing for his fantasy productivity.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 3/20/16 2:34pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is still expected to start on the outside in 2016 despite the addition of free-agent WR Chris Givens. Agholor was a first-round pick whose development was stunted due to injury last year.
Huddle Up: Agholor's dynasty-league owners definitely are hoping that's the case after suffering through the rookie's 23-283-1 rookie season.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 3/11/16 2:44pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez was acquired by the Denver Broncos on Friday, March 11, in exchange for a conditional 2017 draft pick -- reportedly a seventh rounder. Sanchez is likely to serve as the backup quarterback this year, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe. Sanchez had four touchdowns and four interceptions in six games in 2015, and he has 86 TDs and 84 picks in his career.
Huddle Up: GM John Elway tweeted Friday that this is the team's "first step" in reconstructing their QB picture, meaning that Sanchez figures to be nothing more than a bridge starter at best with the Broncos still in play to acquire a veteran QB or using a high draft pick on a quarterback.
