Four Philadelphia Eagles with direct ties to the area

The Eagles traded for Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift on Day 3 of the 2023 NFL Draft.

It's a homecoming for Swift. The Philadelphia native was one of the country's best high school running backs at St. Joe's Prep before tearing it up at Georgia and being drafted by the Lions.

Now, he'll be joining a stacked roster hungry for a Super Bowl ring. Swift will provide a spark to the team's run game and has the potential to be a three-down back for the Eagles.

Swift isn't the first Eagle to

Grading the Philadelphia Eagles' draft picks

The Eagles came out swinging on the first night of the 2023 NFL Draft and kept the mojo going until Saturday.

They were praised across sports media for their draft choices. Many news outlets hailed them as the winners of the draft. Some even gave them an A+ for their picks, including USA Today.

Eagles general manager Howie Roseman put together one of his best draft classes on paper this year. While mistakes he made in previous drafts have been put under a microscope by the tough, unforgiving P

How D'Andre Swift trade makes Eagles even better

The Eagles traded for Swift on Day 3 of the NFL Draft. They gave up a seventh-round pick in this year's draft and 2025 fourth-round and seventh-round picks to acquire Swift, per NFL insider Adam Schefter.

This trade comes after the Detroit Lions drafted Alabama running back Jahmyr Gibbs in the first round of the draft.

The Eagles are pulling this deal off after Texas running back Bijan Robinson went to the Atlanta Falcons at pick No. 8 before they could draft him at No. 10. They also let forme

Let's just call them the Philadelphia Bulldogs

It's often said that history repeats itself. This saying couldn't be more true when it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles drafting Georgia Bulldogs.

In last year's NFL Draft, the Eagles selected Georgia defensive tackle Jordan Davis in the first round and linebacker Nakobe Dean in the third.

On Thursday night in the first round, they added two more Bulldogs, defensive tackle Jalen Carter and edge rusher Nolan Smith.

Carter, the No. 1 prospect in the draft according to ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr,

With two stellar picks, the Eagles got a lot better

And so did ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr., who declared the Eagles the biggest winners of the first round (per, and ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith, who also thought Philadelphia won the night.

Carter was the No. 1 draft prospect regardless of position on Kiper Jr.'s draft board. While his off-field troubles are a concern, his talent on the field is undeniable. Carter will have a chance to learn the NFL game under another Eagles first-round pick, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.

How Bijan Robinson-less Eagles backfield shapes up

The Eagles missed a chance on Thursday night to draft Texas' Bijan Robinson, the consensus best running back in the draft. Instead, the Falcons selected him with the eighth overall pick.

Robinson, the 2022 Doak Walker Award winner as the best college running back, would have been a perfect fit for Philadelphia's RPO attack. His NFL comparison is former Seahawks star Marshawn Lynch, per CBS Sports.

As the Eagles search for another option out of the backfield, whether it's in the late rounds of

Why pressure is ratcheted up for Eagles GM after Jalen Hurts extension

On Monday, Jalen Hurts agreed to a five-year, $255 million contract extension with the Philadelphia Eagles that will make him the highest-paid player in NFL history. The pressure will be high on Hurts to live up to that deal, but another Eagle may face even more pressure: general manager Howie Roseman.

Per NFL Network, Hurts will make $64 million through 2024, probably limiting in the near term what the Eagles can accomplish via free agency and trades due to the salary cap. So it will be vitall

Ravens star Marlon Humphrey calls this Eagles duo the best in NFL

At the halfway mark last season, ranked Slay and Bradberry as the league's two best shutdown corners. The final 2022 numbers back up that claim.

In 2022, the Eagles' defense ranked third in yards allowed (5,125), with Slay and Bradberry playing vital roles. The corners each had three interceptions as Philadelphia posted the league's third-best turnover differential, per The Football Database.

Starting quarterbacks posted a passer rating of 90 or higher only five times against Philadelp

Why the Eagles' retention of older players makes sense

As the offseason continues, the Eagles are retooling with the intention of getting another chance at a Super Bowl ring in 2023. Some of their moves might seem questionable at first, but they make sense with greater scrutiny.

The Eagles let defensive tackle Javon Hargrave (49ers), safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson (Lions), right guard Isaac Seumalo (Steelers) and linebackers Kyzir White (Cardinals) and T.J. Edwards (Bears) walk in free agency.

Meanwhile, they re-signed longtime center Jason Kelce, de

Why an Eagles deal for Jalen Ramsey makes sense

Facing major salary cap issues, the Los Angeles Rams will probably trade star cornerback Jalen Ramsey, according to the NFL Insider Tom Pelissero.

Two huge NFL Draft prospects to visit Eagles

The Eagles in the coming weeks will host visits by massive Ohio State Draft prospects Paris Johnson Jr. and Dawand Jones, both of whom are considered first-round picks.

Johnson Jr., a 6-foot-6, 310-pound left tackle, will also visit the Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals, per NFL reporter Jared Tokarz.

Jones, a 6-foot-8, 359-pound right tackle, also has visits scheduled with the Washington Commanders, Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers, among other teams, per The Draft Network's Ryan

Three backup quarterback options for the Philadelphia Eagles

We've heard the rumors about where big-name quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers and Lamar Jackson might end up, but what about potential backup QBs around the league?

The Philadelphia Eagles will be in the market for a new backup quarterback this offseason.

Gardner Minshew was last season's backup and he'll be a free agent once the new league year begins March 15. Minshew was a solid backup for the Eagles over the past two seasons, and has been linked to the Carolina Panthers.

So, who will be the

Three potential landing spots for Carson Wentz

After wearing out his welcome in Philly, Indianapolis and Washington, Carson Wentz is looking for his fourth team in four years. Earlier this week, the Commanders saved $26 million on the salary cap by releasing him.

Here are three potential options for Wentz in 2023.

Wentz might have a difficult time finding a starting gig after his past few seasons. But it's possible he becomes a backup for a team with a shaky quarterback situation.

Russell Wilson underperformed last season, regressing in v

Three potential franchise tag options for the Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles have 20 impending free agents, per Spotrac. The team won't bring all of them back for financial constraints and other reasons.

The Eagles lead the league in dead money with $46 million and are nearly $10 million over the cap, per Spotrac.

The Eagles are expected to sign franchise quarterback Jalen Hurts to a contract worth $45 million to $50 million annually, per NBC Sports Philadelphia, making him one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league. Wide receiver A.J. B

The one thing the Philadelphia Eagles must get right this offseason

To secure their future, the Philadelphia Eagles must hit big in the draft. The Eagles have the firepower to make that happen, but the draft can be a crapshoot.

Philadelphia has six picks, including two in the first round. The Saints gifted the Eagles a first-rounder — the 10th overall — in a deal to move up during last year's draft. The No. 30 overall pick is their own. Philadelphia also has picks in the second, third and seventh rounds (two).

Good, young players are cheaper players. If the fi

Three reasons to be optimistic about the Philadelphia Eagles

The Super Bowl loss to Kansas City stung the Eagles and their fans, and Philadelphia's 2022 coordinators — Jonathan Gannon and Shane Steichen — have left for head-coaching gigs. But there are plenty of reasons for optimism for 2023. Here are three:

Jalen Hurts is the quarterback of the future

In 2022, Hurts — who's still playing on a rookie deal — cemented himself as the Eagles' franchise quarterback. He went 16-1 as the starter in the regular season and playoffs, threw for 22 TDs and rushed f

How will the Eagles offense look without OC Shane Steichen?

It's official: Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen will be the Indianapolis Colts next head coach.

How will the Eagles offense adapt without Steichen?

Steichen will be greatly missed. Since joining the team in 2021, he's turned the Eagles into one of the best offenses in the league.

The Eagles' 2,715 rushing yards as a team lead the league in 2021. They were a top-five rushing attack this year behind one of the best offensive lines in the league.

Locking up Jalen Hurts first offseason priority for Eagles

Super Bowl LVII loser Philadelphia will look like a different team next season. With coaching departures, the potential retirement of longtime center Jason Kelce and free agency on the horizon, it's shaping up to be a busy offseason.

Here are four priorities for the NFC champions:

Hurts has done more than enough to receive a long-term contract. In 2022, he threw for 22 touchdowns and rushed for 13 more, finished second in MVP voting and led the Eagles to the Super Bowl in his second year as fu

Highs, lows from Andy Reid's tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles

In 1999, the Eagles hired Andy Reid as the franchise's 20th head coach. The unheralded quarterbacks coach from the Green Bay Packers had no professional experience as an offensive coordinator or head coach.

But Reid quickly grew into his lofty position and became the winningest head coach (130-93-1) in franchise history. At the end of Reid's tenure in Philadelphia, however, the Eagles fizzled.

A brief history of great Black Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks

For the first time in Super Bowl history, two Black quarterbacks will start against each other Sunday. The matchup between Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes and Philadelphia's Jalen Hurts is one of the game's best storylines.

"You think about all the rich history in this game, and to be a part of such a historic event, a historic moment, it's special," Hurts said, per Fox Sports.

In 1988, Washington's Doug Williams became the first Black quarterback to win a Super Bowl, throwing for 340 yards and

A Super Bowl LVII storyline you may not have heard of

Kansas City head coach Andy Reid vs. his former team, the Eagles. Jason Kelce vs. his brother Travis. The first time that two Black quarterbacks will play against each other as Super Bowl starters.

And there's a great under-the-radar storyline, too: Reid vs. Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni.

In early 2013, shortly after he became Chiefs head coach, Reid cleaned house in Kansas City. Every coach on the team was replaced with his handpicked selections. Wide receivers coach Sirianni was part of th

The Eagles' X-factor in the NFC Championship Game

If there was an MVP award for the NFC Championship Game, Eagles linebacker Haason Reddick would be the clear favorite to win thanks to his dominant performance.

Reddick finished the day with three tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

The 2022 NFC Championship game was yet another herculean effort from Reddick, who is having a career year. Reddick is tied for second in the league in sacks (16) and tied for first in forced fumbles with five, per ESPN.

Eagles coach Nick Sirianni snubbed from NFL Coach of the Year nomination

The Associated Press announced the finalists for the NFL Coach of the Year award.

The finalists for the award are San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Pederson and Brian Daboll of the New York Giants, per AP.

Pederson, a former Super Bowl champion with the Eagles, took a team that won four games combined over the past two seasons and led them to an AFC South title and the divisional round of the playoffs.
