Jason Avant - WR Posted 4/8/14 2:24pm et
The Carolina Panthers have signed free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles) to an undisclosed 1-year deal.
Huddle Up: The Panthers are remaking their entire WR corps, and Avant has a chance to be a starter and immediately better his career single-season highs (53 catches, 679 yards) attained in recent seasons in Philly.

Jason Avant - WR Posted 4/6/14 10:02pm et
The Carolina Panthers are scheduled to meet with free-agent WR Jason Avant (Eagles) on Monday, April 7.
Huddle Up: Carolina already has signed free-agent wideouts Jerricho Cotchery and Tiquan Underwood, but after purging their entire WR corps from this past season, there's still more work to be done at the position -- either in free agency, the draft or possibly even both.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 4/2/14 1:10am et
Tuesday's deal between the Washington Redskins and WR DeSean Jackson appears to be a 3-year pact. Financial terms of the deal are still undisclosed.
Huddle Up: With the offseason additions of Jackson, the deep burner they've lacked, and ex-Cardinal Andre Roberts paired with 2013 receptions leader Pierre Garcon, the Skins suddenly have a potent WR corps for RGIII. At the same time with all the targets -- especially if TE Jordan Reed can come back strong -- don't count on Jackson or Garcon approaching their career-high numbers.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 4/1/14 8:27pm et
Free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles) has left Redskins park, but will stay in Washington in hopes of getting a deal done with the team. His agent reportedly is in negotiations with the club.
Huddle Up: The speedy Jackson and RGIII's big arm could form a potent combo -- one that could turn out to haunt the in-division rival Eagles. See what develops.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 3/30/14 2:27pm et
The Buffalo Bills are said to be a serious suitor for free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles) but will not get into a bidding war.
Huddle Up: Sure, the Bills could always use another outside weapon for second-year QB EJ Manuel, but they'll be fine with the likes of Stevie Johnson, TJ Graham, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin if the right price can't be agreed upon.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 3/30/14 10:49pm et
Updating a previous report, the Carolina Panthers will not pursue free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles).
Huddle Up: The Panthers, with their limited budget, signed free agents Jerricho Cotchery and Tiquan Underwood, and those two could wind up being the team's starters, pending what Carolina does in the draft.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 3/30/14 10:49pm et
The Oakland Raiders are willing to make a substantial offer to free-agent WR DeSean Jackson (Eagles) but will not get into a bidding war for him.
Huddle Up: The Silver & Black already have signed wideout James Jones, but luring Jackson back to the Golden State would a strong WR corps for new QB Matt Schaub.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 3/28/14 1:16pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles released WR DeSean Jackson Friday, March 28.
Huddle Up: Well, that escalated quickly. Trade rumors surrounding DJax had been swirling, but the Eagles evidently couldn't find a willing partner and had enough of Jackson's act. Jackson is still capable of providing a team with a dangerous playmaking element, and now he has his pick of teams. This should be interesting.

Jeremy Maclin - WR Posted 3/27/14 10:45pm et
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said WR Jeremy Maclin is on schedule in terms of his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament that shelved him for the 2013 season. Kelly said he is not sure if Maclin will be able to participate in offseason workouts but should be 100 percent by training camp.
Huddle Up: Maclin averaged 67 catches, 893 yards and 7 TDs in his last 3 full seasons and could be in line for even more work if Philly winds up trading DeSean Jackson as has been rumored.

Chip Kelly - HC Posted 3/26/14 2:08pm et
After speaking with Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson in a private meeting, head coach Chip Kelly was non-committal as to whether the team will actually trade Jackson this offseason. 'I like DeSean. DeSean did a really nice job for us (last season). But we're always going to do what's best for the organization,' Kelly said. Kelly also said Jackson hasn't approached the team about adding money to his contract.
Huddle Up: Rumors continue to swirl that the Eagles are dealing Jackson, that Jackson wants out, etc. Philly has enough talent at wide receiver (Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper) to offset the potential loss of Jackson, but they don't seem eager to unload him. It's a situation fantasy footballers want to see sorted out before draft day, as it impacts the value of multiple players.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 3/23/14 4:07pm et
The New York Jets have measured interest in Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson that will intensify if the Eagles release him.
Huddle Up: Jackson became more interesting to the Jets with the signing of ex-Philly teammate Michael Vick, but there are plenty of hurdles ahead, including the number of other teams interested in the wideout and Jackson's high salary-cap figure ($12M).

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 3/21/14 8:32pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles have intensified their efforts to try to trade WR DeSean Jackson within the past week.
Huddle Up: This has been a much-rumored move, and with Philly having inked Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin they do have a surplus of wide receivers. Jackson still has plenty left in the tank, and in the right situation would be a viable fantasy WR1.

Michael Vick - QB Posted 3/21/14 8:32pm et
The New York Jets signed QB Michael Vick to a one-year, $5 million deal Friday, March 21, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Vick will compete with Geno Smith for the starting gig in New York. They might also have a pay-per-view arm wrestling match for Smith's jersey number "7".

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 3/20/14 7:47pm et
The New England Patriots have expressed interest in trading for Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson.
Huddle Up: The Niners and Jets reportedly also are interested, but N.E. obviously presents the most fantasy upside with Tom Brady at QB and the team's need for outside WR help.

Michael Vick - QB Posted 3/19/14 12:36pm et
The New York Jets will visit with free-agent QB Michael Vick (Eagles) this weekend.
Huddle Up: Vick would be the likely starter ahead of Geno Smith, giving him at least a modicum of fantasy value if that's where he lands heading into 2014.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 3/19/14 12:36pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles may be shopping WR DeSean Jackson because head coach Chip Kelly doesn't want him around. Kelly has a final say on the 53-man roster, and Jackson has had a couple of dustups with coaches.
Huddle Up: The Eagles re-signed both Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, as well as acquiring Darren Sproles, so they would have bodies to replace Jackson in their offense. DJax, meanwhile, can still play and would have a chip on his shoulder to motivate him if Philly ships him out of town.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 3/18/14 10:47pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles are serious about listening to trade offers for WR DeSean Jackson, and the team is at least seeking a third-round pick and potentially more in return for Jackson. The Eagles have already heard from the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots. Jackson is two years into his five-year, $51 million extension and will make $10.25 million in base salary in 2014.
Huddle Up: Jackson's big-play ability is enticing as he's one of 5 NFL wideouts to catch a 100 or more passes since 2008 and average more than 17 yards a reception, so don't be surprised if a deal gets cut long before the May draft.

Darren Sproles - RB Posted 3/13/14 1:38pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles acquired RB Darren Sproles from the New Orleans Saints for a 5th-round draft pick.
Huddle Up: Philly won the bid for Sproles, but this isn't exactly the best news for LeSean McCoy's fantasy value, particularly in PPR leagues. Sproles is almost exclusively a pass-receiving back and is sure to cut into the targets for McCoy, who has had at least 48 receptions in each of the past 4 seasons.

Michael Vick - QB Posted 3/6/14 1:34pm et
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is lobbying for the team to sign free-agent QB Michael Vick (Eagles).
Huddle Up: Peterson insists the Vikes would be a playoff team with Vick, but then again, they were a playoff team in 2012 with QB Christian Ponder starting 16 games. The Jets and Raiders also are reportedly very interested in Vick, so stay tuned.

Michael Vick - QB Posted 3/6/14 10:47pm et
The Jacksonville Jaguars could be interested in signing Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Michael Vick.
Huddle Up: Add the Jags to the possible-Vick-suitor list which already includes the Jets, Raiders, Vikings.

Jason Avant - WR Posted 3/4/14 4:00pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles officially released WR Jason Avant on Tuesday, March 4.
Huddle Up: Avant remains in his prime at age 30 (31 in April) and is one season removed from a career-high 53 receptions in 2012. He could prove to be an decent pickup for a team needing a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver to pair with an established No. 1 wideout or strong starting duo.

DeSean Jackson - WR Posted 3/3/14 1:18am et
Some people in the Philadelphia Eagles organization believe WR DeSean Jackson's personality is not a great fit with the locker room culture head coach Chip Kelly is looking to create, and that the team could be open to trading Jackson.
Huddle Up: Jackson is coming off a career season (82-1,332-9), but something could be in the works with Philly already getting deals done with fellow wideouts Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin this offseason.

Jeremy Maclin - WR Posted 2/28/14 6:17pm et
Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth up to $6 million with $3.5 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: It's a show-me deal for Maclin, who blew out his knee heading into 2013 and was unable to put up a marketable campaign. Maclin joins DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper to give Nick Foles a formidable receiving corps.

Jeremy Maclin - WR Posted 2/27/14 12:51pm et
Updating an earlier report, the Philadelphia Eagles are negotiating with WR Jeremy Maclin but are not close to a deal.
Huddle Up: With Philly's flurry of recent moves, including the shiny new 5-year, $25 million deal for fellow wideout Riley Cooper, it increases the likelihood that Maclin might be left as the odd man out.

Riley Cooper - WR Posted 2/27/14 12:51pm et
Updating a previous report, the Philadelphia Eagles re-signed free-agent WR Riley Cooper on Thursday, Feb. 27 to a five-year, $25 million deal.
Huddle Up: Cooper was able to shake off last summer's concert-comment controversy and post career highs across the board in games started (15), receptions (47), receiving yards (835) and TD catches (8). In fact, those numbers trumped the totals from his 3 previous seasons combined. Look for him to remain a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 opposite DeSean Jackson.

Michael Vick - QB Posted 2/25/14 2:15pm et
Based on conversations with sources at the NFL Scouting Combine, there may be interest from the New York Jets to sign free-agent QB Michael Vick (Eagles).
Huddle Up: The Jets are exploring a number of QB options, including retaining Mark Sanchez, and it sounds as if having the veteran Vick come in and compete with and/or mentor second-year Geno Smith remains a possibility.

Chris Polk - RB Posted 2/25/14 2:34pm et
Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk is expected to have a more prominent role in 2014 if the team trades RB Bryce Brown. Head coach Chip Kelly likes Polk's running style.
Huddle Up: Polk, a college free agent entering his 3rd season in Philly, only had 15 total touches last season but showed some explosiveness and production, scoring 3 TDs and averaging 8.9 yards on his 11 rushes and averaging 15.3 yards per catch on his 4 receptions. Keep this name handy, especially is he suddenly becomes LeSean McCoy's handcuff.

Jeremy Maclin - WR Posted 2/22/14 8:54pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles have decided re-signing impending free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin will be a bigger priority than re-signing impending free-agent WR Riley Cooper. The team will look to sign Maclin to a one-year deal and attempt to sign another starting-caliber wide receiver in free agency. The team could be interested in bringing Cooper back if they are not able to find another option.
Huddle Up: There's room for three receivers in Chip Kelly's offense, though with Maclin back in the mix Cooper's numbers--and the amount Philly would be willing to pay him--would dip more than a little. It will be interesting to see how the Philly receiver situation shakes out, as there are plenty of fantasy ramifications.

Jason Avant - WR Posted 2/22/14 8:54pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles likely will release WR Jason Avant this offseason because his offensive production slipped this season.
Huddle Up: Avant was at best the third receiver in Philly. With Jeremy Maclin and/or Riley Cooper alongside DeSean Jackson, plus the development of tight end Zach Ertz, there aren't enough opportunities to go around for Avant to stick on the Eagles' roster.

Chip Kelly - HC Posted 2/19/14 8:21pm et
The Philadelphia Eagles would like to retain WR Riley Cooper if at all possible because he averaged 17.8 yards per catch in coach Chip Kelly's offense this season.
Huddle Up: Cooper's familiarity with--and success in--Kelly's offense is certainly a selling point. The Eagles also have Jeremy Maclin entering free agency, and while they've talked about bringing both back you have to think the guy who didn't miss last season with a knee injury and who put up pretty good numbers running Kelly's offense would have the inside track on a deal.
