Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 5/17/15 3:36pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez could be the team's best bet for a starting quarterback. Sanchez went 4-4 after taking over as the starter last season, and finished the campaign with a career best 64.1 completion percentage. Sanchez has played all but one game during his six-year career, showing health that's lacked by the Eagles' other options.
Huddle Up: As the 4-4 record attests, the results certainly were mixed as Sanchez started the second half of the 2014 season in Philly, leading many to believe that it's newcomer Sam Bradford's job to lose. Still, the elephant in the room is Bradford's lengthy injury history so Sanchez might end up finishing the 2015 season as the Eagles' starter even if it doesn't start out that way.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 5/17/15 8:16pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is going to be missed by his former team, the Dallas Cowboys, according to retired WR Michael Irvin. 'I want to upchuck sometimes when I hear the thoughts of others and (they say), 'Oh, you can put any running back behind that offensive line of the Dallas Cowboys,' Irvin said. 'I say, 'Really? Why did they hand the ball off to DeMarco Murray 392 times? Why didn't they stick anybody back there last year?' Because they already knew.'
Huddle Up: Fantasy GMs, meanwhile, will miss the clear RB1 option they had last season in the Big D backfield as the dice will be rolled with and hopes will be pinned on Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and even Ryan Williams and Lance Dunbar in the middle and later rounds.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 5/15/15 2:16pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is a perfect fit for Chip Kelly's offense because he can make all the throws with a 'top-notch' arm, is a 'better athlete than people think' and operates best out of a no-huddle attack, according to New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
Huddle Up: Most NFL fans still don't know what to make of Bradford given all the time he missed with injuries in St. Louis, but in a prime position at the controls of Kelly's high-octane attack, he's sure to elicit opinions on both ends of the fantasy spectrum this summer.
Riley Cooper - WRPosted 5/11/15 11:12am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper may not have a starting job this season with the drafting of WR Nelson Agholor.
Huddle Up: Cooper was nowhere near as productive last year as he was in 2013, and with Chip Kelly investing a first-round pick in Agholor it will be that much tougher for Cooper to see the field this season.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 5/7/15 1:43pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez believes he can still start this year. 'Really just talking with [head] coach [Chip] Kelly and knowing I'm coming with the opportunity to compete for the starting job, that was important to me,' Sanchez said.
Huddle Up: As long as they don't get swallowed up by the coming Tebow side show, Sanchez and newcomer Sam Bradford should wage one of the more intriguing QB battles this summer as they vie for what figures to continue to be a productive fantasy role piloting Chip Kelly's attack.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 5/3/15 4:08pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was shopped to both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans, according to sources, but Eagles coach Chip Kelly has denied the rumors.
Huddle Up: Shopped or not, it's water under the bridge now, and the onus remains on Bradford to show he can stay healthy and produce in a contract year while guiding what's been one of the league's top offenses since Kelly took the reins in 2013.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 5/1/15 1:02am ET
Southern California WR Nelson Agholor was selected 20th overall by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2015 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 30.
Huddle Up: It's not the Thursday move most Philly fans were hoping for, but another Pac-12 product is joining the Eagles, who passed on Breshad Perriman, Phillip Dorsett and Jaelen Strong to take Agholor who had 104 catches for 1,313 yards and 12 TDs last season as a junior at USC. He'll have the immediate opportunity to step in for the departed Jeremy Maclin in the totally overhauled Philly offense.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/28/15 4:23pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford was acquired to be the team's quarterback, not as a trade pawn. Bradford will only sign an extension with the Eagles with a no-trade clause, as he really wants to play in the system of head coach Chip Kelly and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: Given the offseason that Kelly and the Eagles have already had, nothing certainly can be ruled out at this point, especially with Marcus Mariota still two days away from finding his NFL home. Stay tuned ...
Chris Polk - RBPosted 4/26/15 10:23pm ET
Free-agent RB Chris Polk (Eagles) is drawing interest from five NFL teams, according to sources. The teams were not disclosed, except to say one of the teams is from the NFC East.
Huddle Up: Polk, an undrafted free agent in 2012, only logged 63 touches in his three seasons in Philly but showed a nose for the big play with a 4.7 yards-per-rush average and seven TDs and would make a for a solid bargain-basement backup RB option.
Chris Polk - RBPosted 4/24/15 8:04pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles restricted free-agent RB Chris Polk's tender offer has been rescinded by the Eagles, according to a source. Polk will become an unrestricted free agent and allowed to sign with any team.
Huddle Up: With the additions of DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles entering his second season in Philly, there simply was little room left for Polk, who served as the primary backup to LeSean McCoy last season.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 4/23/15 11:52am ET
The Philadelphia Eagles and QB Sam Bradford have yet to make significant progress on a contract extension sparking speculation the quarterback might be traded again, although head coach Chip Kelly insists Bradford won't be used as a bargaining chip.
Huddle Up: With any other team, Bradford would appear safe to stay, but the Chip Kelly-Marcus Mariota link simply remains too plausible to write anything in ink -- especially after what we've witnessed from the mercurial Kelly so far this offseason.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 4/3/15 5:15pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews said the team won't really have a designated No. 1 receiver in place to replace the production that will be lost with WR Jeremy Maclin signing with the Kansas City Chiefs. 'People ask me about being the No. 1 wide receiver; Forget it,' Matthews said. 'I want us to be a receiving corps. That's what I want it to be.' Matthews was the team's second leading receiver in 2014 with 67 catches for 872 yards and eight touchdowns as the slot receiver. Matthews is likely to play more in 2015 and on the outside. Head coach Chip Kelly said he sees Matthews playing 'a lot of different spots.' Kelly is confident in Matthews and WR Josh Huff, and TE Zach Ertz and RB Darren Sproles could be used more in the passing game.
Huddle Up: Free-agent Miles Austin also has been added to the mix, and don't be surprised if the Eagles draft another wideout, but Matthews appears destined to parlay his rookie-season success and Maclin's departure into WR1 fantasy range this summer.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/27/15 5:06pm ET
St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said it's the team's intention to draft a quarterback in this year's draft, despite trading for QB Nick Foles in the offseason. Florida State QB Jameis Winston and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota are expected to be off the board when the Rams pick with the 10th overall pick in the first round, but the Rams could also trade up to take one of them. The Rams could also look at the second tier of quarterbacks in this class, which includes Baylor QB Bryce Petty, California-Los Angeles QB Brett Hundley, Oregon QB Sean Mannion and Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson. Petty indicated that he has a visit planned with St. Louis. Rams QBs Austin Davis and Case Keenum will compete for the backup job, and the loser might be on the street if the Rams draft another quarterback.
Huddle Up: It's hard to see the Rams trading up for Winston or Mariota unless it was only a spot or two, but it's certainly within reason that the franchise would target Petty or a fellow member of the second tier in third or fourth round with Foles still a largely unproven commodity.
Darren Sproles - RBPosted 3/25/15 10:58am ET
The Philadelphia Eagles traded RB LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills because head coach Chip Kelly desires a one-cut running back, according to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. Lurie praised McCoy as a player, but the move was not financially driven. Kelly felt he could garner more production from a different running back or two. Lurie used the term 'power spread' on multiple occasions to describe Kelly's offense. RBs DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews figure to share the work.
Huddle Up: In Philly, Kelly's system is king. And if a player isn't a fit, especially if they command a large share of the salary cap, you can expect Kelly to find a replacement.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 3/22/15 4:23pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy should receive plenty of carries if head coach Rex Ryan has his way. 'We prefer to ground and pound it, we're going to run it 50 times if we can on you,' Ryan said late last week.
Huddle Up: McCoy is coming off 314- and 312-carry seasons in Philly. Also with 80 catches over the two seasons, McCoy has shown he's accustomed to heavy workloads. However, the flip side is that the wear and tear might start to catch up, and keep in mind that the Bills also have the ageless Fred Jackson to share in the load as well.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 3/17/15 2:30pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WRs Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff will forcibly have increased roles in 2015 with the departure of WR Jeremy Maclin to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Philadelphia staff is reportedly confident enough in the development of the two receivers, as well as second-year TE Zach Ertz.
Huddle Up: Matthews, a 2014 second-round pick, stood out as a rookie -- even in the deep and productive 2014 WR class -- and finished second on the team to Maclin with 103 targets, 67 catches, 872 yards and 8 TDs. He certainly had a stronger debut than the third-rounder Huff, who finished with eight receptions for 98 yards, but the latter still figures to be much more involved while Matthews projects as the team's No. 1 WR. Still, given Chip Kelly's myriad maneuverings so far this offseason, don't be surprised Philly adds another WR, too, before all is said is done.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 3/11/15 3:34pm ET
Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) officially signed with the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday, March 11. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: This makes official what we all knew was coming. Maclin's fantasy value takes a hit moving from Chip Kelly's offense to Andy Reid's, but he will at minimum be the Chiefs' top target so the drop shouldn't be dramatic.
Nick Foles - QBPosted 3/10/15 8:42pm ET
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has officially been traded to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles also receive a 2015 fifth-round draft pick and surrender QB Nick Foles and a 2015 fourth-round draft pick and a 2016 second-round draft pick. However, the 2016 second-round pick will go back to Philadelphia if Bradford does not start. The Eagles can also pick up a conditional pick in 2016 based on how many snaps Bradford takes. If Bradford plays less than 50 percent the Eagles will get a 4th-round pick, if he does not play at all it becomes a 3rd-rounder. If Bradford plays more than 50 percent of snaps the Eagles will not receive any additional compensation.
Huddle Up: A very interesting deal in an offseason already full of them, and perhaps the Eagles are viewing Bradford as their long-term answer more than originally thought as Pat Shurmur, his former offensive coordinator in St. Louis, is now Chip Kelly's OC in Philly. Bradford, though, has started only 49 games out of a possible 80 since entering the league in 2010 and owns an 18-30-1 mark as a starting QB.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 3/9/15 12:31am ET
Impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) is expected to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Maclin, coming off a career year (85-1,318-10) following his knee-injury absence in 2013, is a big get for the WR-needy Chiefs and the wideout's former coach, Andy Reid. Fantasy-wise, Maclin's yardage and TD numbers are almost certainly headed for a dip in K.C. while his departure from Philly clears the way for second-year WR Jordan Matthews to become the Eagles' No. 1 wideout.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 3/9/15 6:14pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin is expected to sign a contract with the Kansas City Chiefs that is close to the $10 million a year Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb received from the Packers, according to a source. Maclin could even receive a little more than Cobb received in his contract.
Huddle Up: Not surprising that Andy Reid was able to woo Maclin, especially with that kind of money. Maclin should be able to end the Chiefs' year-long WR scoring drought, but the chances of him matching his numbers from Philly are extremely limited.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 3/8/15 3:12pm ET
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy has agreed to a new five-year deal worth $40 million. McCoy will make $16 million in the first year of the contract and will receive $26.5 million in guaranteed money as part of the contract.
Huddle Up: The new deal -- expected to become official Tuesday once his trade goes through -- adds two years to the already existing contract for McCoy, who has rushed for the third-most yards in the league since being drafted by Philly in the second round in 2009.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 3/8/15 8:26pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Mark Sanchez has agreed to re-sign with the team. According to FOX Sports, Sanchez is getting a two-year deal worth $9.5 million with $5.5 guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Interesting move which not only takes perhaps the top free-agent QB off the market but also increases speculation that Nick Foles could be moved in a bid to trade up and draft Marcus Mariota. Stay tuned ...
Byron Maxwell - CBPosted 3/8/15 8:26pm ET
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent CB Byron Maxwell has reportedly agreed to a six-year, $63 million deal to join the Philadelphia Eagles. It was previously reported that he had agreed to a five-year deal.
Huddle Up: The Legion of Boom loses some punch as Maxwell was regarded as the top free-agent CB on the market. He started 12 of his 13 games in Seattle last season, finishing with 13 passes defensed, two interceptions and 50 total tackles and instantly upgrades a Philly D which ranked 31st in the league last season with 264.8 passing yards allowed per game.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 3/4/15 12:53pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is unhappy with the trade to the Bills, according to a source close to him. 'He's a Pennsylvania kid. He's never played football outside of Pennsylvania,' the source said. 'So of course he's not happy. Sounds like it's pretty final to me unless LeSean is refusing to go to Buffalo.' When the source was asked if McCoy was going to make the trade difficult, they said: 'he's not going to make it easy, that's for sure.'
Huddle Up: So McCoy isn't going to report to Buffalo? That could cause some problems. Also tough to see the Bills ponying up more money to woo McCoy. Looks like Rex Ryan will have some selling to do to get McCoy to buy into Buffalo Ground & Pound.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 3/3/15 8:32pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy will reportedly be traded for Buffalo Bills LB Kiko Alonso. The trade cannot be made official until the new league year begins next Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET. According to an ESPN report, the Bills will owe McCoy, who is signed through 2017, $10.25 million this season.
Huddle Up: Here's the first real fantasy (and reality) blockbuster move of the offseason as McCoy has compiled the third-most fantasy points among NFL RBs since entering the league in 2009. It's an instant upgrade for the Bills' backfield, and for now, it leaves Philly with a Darren Sproles-Chris Polk combo atop the depth chart, although that certainly could change given the depth of the free-agent and 2015 draft RB classes.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 3/2/15 9:01am ET
Free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) and the Philadelphia Eagles are trying to work out a new contract, but the team has until 4 p.m. Monday, March 2, to put the franchise tag on Maclin.
Huddle Up: If Philly doesn't have any other plans with the tag they could lock Maclin up with the tag while still working on a long-term deal. Either way, sounds like Maclin will at minimum be an Eagle for the 2015 season--and most likely beyond.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 3/2/15 6:31pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin did not receive the franchise tag before the deadline Monday, March 2. Maclin and the Eagles have been working on a long-term deal and have until Tuesday, March 10, to get one done or else Maclin will become a free agent.
Huddle Up: Philly could still lock down Maclin, but now the receiver has a chance to talk to other teams and see what the market will offer for his services.
James Casey - TEPosted 2/19/15 4:53pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE James Casey was released Thursday, Feb. 19.
Huddle Up: After looking to be on the upswing after catching 34 passes for 330 yards and 3 TDs in 2012 with the Texans, Casey's two seasons with the Eagles netted six receptions, 90 yards and pair of scores and the versatile TE/FB will now be looking for a new home. Could a reunion with former coach Gary Kubiak, now in Denver, be his next stop?
Nick Foles - QBPosted 2/17/15 4:04pm ET
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was offered to the Philadelphia Eagles at the start of the 2013 season, but the Eagles did not want to trade QB Nick Foles for Gordon, according to a source. The Eagles were concerned about Gordon's two-game suspension, while the Browns wanted Foles to be their starting quarterback.
Huddle Up: Tough luck for the Browns, who are likely now faced with waiving the troubled WR without getting anything in return, let alone a potential starting QB.
Jeremy Maclin - WRPosted 2/17/15 8:12pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin is unlikely to receive the franchise tag because of the kind of financial commitment it would entail. It's still likely that the Eagles will work out a long-term deal with him.
Huddle Up: Maclin hit career highs across the board -- 85-1,318-10 -- for Philly, which got rid of DeSean Jackson a year ago and can't afford to let another top WR walk given its lack of depth at the position.
