  2. Report: Morocco Brown not expected to join Eagles’ front office Posted by Charean Williams on May 19, 2022, 10:19 PM EDT Morocco Brown is not expected to join the Eagles’ front office as assistant General Manager, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reports. Brown, the Colts’ director of college scouting, recently interviewed with General Manager Howie Roseman for the job. It is unclear whether Brown was offered the position. He was considered a front-runner. Steelers pro scouting coordinator Brandon Hunt also interviewed with the Eagles. Brown interviewed for the Steelers’ General Manager job, and earlier this offseason he had an interview with the Bears before they hired Ryan Poles as their new G.M. Brown joined the Colts in 2016 and also has worked in Cleveland, Washington and Chicago after breaking into the league as an intern with the Colts in 2000. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2022/05/19/report-morocco-brown-not-expected-to-join-eagles-front-office/
  3. James Bradberry agrees to deal with Eagles Posted by Josh Alper on May 18, 2022, 10:39 AM EDT The Giants cut cornerback James Bradberry this month, but they’ll be seeing him a couple of times during the 2022 season. The Eagles announced that Bradberry has agreed to terms on a one-year contract. According to multiple reports, it is a $10 million deal for Bradberry in Philadelphia but there’s no word on how much of that might be in incentives rather than base salary. Bradberry was set to make a $13.4 million salary before being released. Bradberry spent the last two seasons with the Giants after signing as a free agent and he was selected to the Pro Bowl after his first season with the team. He recorded 101 tackles, seven interceptions, two forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries in 32 appearances for the team. Bradberry will join Darius Slay and Avonte Maddox at the top of the cornerback depth chart for the Eagles, who will be trying for their second straight playoff appearance during the 2022 season. Adding a corner like Bradberry to the defense should be a big boost to that bid. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2022/05/18/james-bradberry-agrees-to-deal-with-eagles/
  4. Howie Roseman explains the decision to trade for A.J. Brown Posted by Mike Florio on May 15, 2022 The Eagles stunned the football-following world on the first night of the draft by trading for Titans receiver A.J. Brown. Recently, Eagles G.M. Howie Roseman visited #PFTPM to discuss the decision to make the trade. "Three factors, when I think about why we made the trade,” Roseman said. "I think one was the player fit. The evaluation of the player. Tremendous player. We did a lot of work on him coming out of Ole Miss. Felt like this guy really made a difference whether playing inside or outside. How he complemented our young receivers. We drafted DeVonta [Smith]. We drafted Jalen Reagor. We have Quez Watkins. We signed Zach Pascal. We have a bunch of other guys here that have contributed to our football team. He was a different kind of player.” Roseman became drawn to Brown given their experiences against another big receiver who could make things happen with the ball in his hands. "We had played for a long time against Anquan Boldin,” Roseman said. "The difference he made as a player and how physical he was and the toughness that he played with. He hated to be tackled. Then we had won a championship with Alshon [Jeffrey] and what he did on the outside. That’s kind of a piece, that we had different body types.” Roseman also explained that the current makeup of the roster made it easier to go after Brown. "I think second is just where we were as a team,” Roseman said. "I think there’s two parts of that. I think the first part is we have a quarterback on a rookie deal so you’re able to maybe be more aggressive in those modes. I’m sure that was — I don’t want to talk for [Titans G.M. Jon Robinson] but I’m sure that was part of his thinking, like, ‘I got a quarterback that I’m paying.’ "The third part of it is that we had accumulated assets. We know this. The best guys in the draft are going to hit on 60 percent of their first-round picks. No matter how strongly you feel about a first-round pick, you still don’t know how that guy is going to transition. How is he going to transition to a new city? How is he going to transition with money in his pocket? How is he going to translate to new personalities? How is he going to translate living on his own for the first time? I’m not saying that’s a reason to be risk averse and not take draft picks, but because we had accumulated some of these draft picks and because of those other reasons, we felt like this made sense for us right now at this time.” Roseman still had to consider the impact of trading for and paying Brown on the rest of the team. "When you bring free agents in and you pay free agents a lot of money or you trade for guys and pay them a lot of money . . . I think when you do that and you don’t take care of your own locker room, you’re basically telling your guys like maybe you’re not good enough,” Roseman said. "Maybe the guys that you drafted, and you’ve developed and have given blood, sweat, and tears in Eagles uniforms, they’re not good enough. Then you risk those guys becoming independent contractors, right? Because when you get to free agency, you’re probably going to the highest bidder or close to the highest bidder. When you do that to your team and say, ‘Hey we’re going to be aggressive in trying to improve our team, but our priority is always going to be take care of our own.’ Guys we draft and develop that we know them day-to-day, the ins and outs to their personalities. I think what it says to our younger guys is you do the right thing, you play well, and we’re going to try take care of you.” That’s an important point. A team can’t just pay big money to players who have never played there. The team also has to be willing to reward those who have earned second contracts, or the younger players indeed begin to realize that their future will be elsewhere. If the Eagles keep performing at a high level, they’ll have to do that. Starting with quarterback Jalen Hurts, and extending to others. That’s what a team considers a good problem to have. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2022/05/15/howie-roseman-explains-the-decision-to-trade-for-a-j-brown/
  5. Report: Senior executive Tom Donahoe leaving Eagles Posted by Charean Williams on May 6, 2022, 6:41 PM EDT Tom Donahoe is leaving the Eagles’ front office, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Donahoe’s contract expired, and the senior executive told the Eagles in a meeting that it was time to move on, McLane reports. The team and Donahoe declined comment to McLane. Donahoe, 75, had worked for General Manager Howie Roseman since 2012 and served as a mentor for vice president of player personnel Andy Weidl. Donahoe worked for the Steelers and Bills, gaining three decades of NFL experience before arriving in Philadelphia. He rose up the ranks in Pittsburgh, serving as the Steelers’ director of football operations from 1993-99, and Donahoe was the Bills’ president/General Manager from 2001-05. Roseman is reshaping the front office, with the departures of senior scouts Ian Cunningham and Brandon Brown for promotions as assistant General Managers with the Bears and Giants, respectively. Vice president of football operations Catherine Raiche is expected to join the Browns. The Eagles reportedly also fired director of scouting operations Casey Weidl, Andy Weidl’s brother, as well as player personnel executive T.J. McCreight, southwest area scout Shawn Heinlen and scouting assistant Evan Pritt. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2022/05/06/reprot-senior-executive-tom-donahoe-leaving-eagles/
  6. Steelers interview three more G.M. candidates Posted by Josh Alper on February 26, 2022, 6:43 PM EST The Steelers’ list of candidates to succeed Kevin Colbert as their General Manager has grown by three names. The team announced that they have completed interviews with Ravens director of player personnel Joe Hortiz, 49ers director of player personnel Ran Carthon, and Eagles vice president of player personnel Andy Weidl for the position. Packers co-director of player personnel John Wojciechowski, Colts college scouting director Morocco Brown, Panthers assistant G.M. Dan Morgan, Buccaneers vice president of player personnel John Spytek, Titans vice president of player personnel Ryan Cowden, Colts assistant G.M. Ed Dodds and Chargers director of player personnel JoJo Wooden are other outside candidates who have interviewed with the teams. Steelers vice president of football and business administration Omar Khan and pro personnel coordinator Brandon Hunt are also in the mix and there’s been word of an interview with Louis Riddick of ESPN, but no official word from the team of a conversation. Colbert is set to retire after this year’s draft. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2022/02/26/steelers-interview-three-more-g-m-candidates/
  7. Colts play Carson Wentz late in blowout, increasing chance they send first-round pick to Eagles Posted by Michael David Smith on November 5, 2021, 5:41 AM EDT The Colts ended their 45-30 win over the Jets on Thursday night with a kneeldown, which is no surprise. But the fact that starting quarterback Carson Wentz took that kneeldown was great news for the Eagles. The terms of the trade that sent Wentz from Philadelphia to Indianapolis say that the Eagles get the Colts’ 2022 first-round pick if Wentz plays 75 percent of the Colts’ offensive snaps this season, or if Wentz plays 70 percent of snaps and the Colts make the playoffs. Otherwise, the Eagles get the Colts’ second-round pick. If the Colts wanted to prioritize protecting their first-round pick, an easy way to do it would be to take Wentz out of games that have already been decided. But that’s not what they’re doing. Wentz played 100 percent of the Colts’ offensive snaps on Thursday night, even though the game was never really in doubt in the second half. Wentz also played 100 percent of the Colts’ offensive snap in their 31-3 win over the Texans. Through nine games, Wentz has played more than 99 percent of the Colts’ offensive snaps. It’s still possible that a Wentz injury could prevent the Colts from sending their first-round pick to the Eagles, but at this point the worst-case scenario for the Colts might be an injury that would force Wentz to miss the last few games of the season: That could be enough to kill any remaining hopes of making the playoffs, but not enough to drop Wentz below the 75 percent threshold. For the Eagles, seeing Wentz play every snap is great news. Philadelphia also has its own first-round pick as well as Miami’s and is poised to be in great shape on draft day. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/11/05/colts-play-carson-wentz-late-in-blowout-increasing-chance-they-send-first-round-pick-to-eagles/
  8. Nick Sirianni: I have the utmost faith in DC Jonathan Gannon Posted by Myles Simmons on October 26, 2021, 10:22 AM EDT After Sunday’s loss to the Raiders, some of the Eagles veteran players lamented the passivity of Philadelphia’s new defensive scheme. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and safety Rodney McLeod each said a version of, "We just play what’s called,” after Philadelphia surrendered 442 total yards and allowed quarterback Derek Carr to complete 31-of-34 passes in the 33-22 loss. Head coach Nick Sirianni was critical of the defensive calls and philosophy in his postgame press conference, too, saying, "Anytime you’re not playing well, you have to make changes, you have to adapt, you have to move. I don’t want to say you have to make a completely different philosophy switch, but we have to do different things to help our players out, absolutely.” But Sirianni also raised an eyebrow or two when asked about his level of communication with defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon during games. "Every product that’s on that field, is a product and my name is on it. I’m able to talk to them throughout the game, say my piece right there,” Sirianni said. "Again they’re the ones watching the tape all week. I get to watch a little defensive tape. Obviously, I’m doing my homework as an offensive coordinator. I’m making suggestions here and there, but they’re the ones watching the tape all week.” While Sirianni noted that he’s ultimately responsible for everything on the field, and he is the offensive play-caller, he’s not a coordinator. Shane Steichen has that title. Sirianni is the head coach. And publicly pointing out that he’s not watching much defensive film may not have been advisable, especially when the team has fallen to 2-5. Sirianni did some cleanup work in his Monday press conference, while also voicing his confidence in Gannon. "I want to make it very clear, when I say the defense needs to tighten up, I’m looking at myself first,” Sirianni said, via Daye Zangaro of NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com. "Every product that’s on that field, special teams, defense, offense, has my name on it. I’m not just the offensive coordinator, I’m the head coach of this football team. So, everything that’s out there on that field is first my responsibility. "When I say the defense needs to tighten up and needs to get the ball back to the offense, I’m saying that that’s my responsibility, right? That’s my responsibility to say, ‘Hey, on this one, I want to tighten up and play man coverage on this one.’ In no way, shape or form was I putting any blame on the defense or Jonathan Gannon at all. "I have utmost faith in Jonathan Gannon. I have utmost faith in our defense. I’m putting that responsibility on me and nobody else.” Whether that faith will be rewarded remains to be seen. But it’s clear the Eagles have to change some things up to have more success. They’ll get the chance to do so against the winless Lions this week in Detroit. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/10/26/nick-sirianni-i-have-the-utmost-faith-in-dc-jonathan-gannon/
  9. Eagles trade Zach Ertz to Cardinals for Tay Gowan and a fifth-round pick Posted by Michael David Smith on October 15, 2021, 11:13 AM EDT Longtime Eagles tight end Zach Ertz will be in Philadelphia no longer. The Eagles traded Ertz to the Cardinals today in exchange for cornerback Tay Gowan and a 2022 fifth-round draft pick, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Although Ertz was known to want a new contract, the report says he hasn’t discussed that with the Cardinals yet. Ertz is not eligible to play on Sunday for the Cardinals. Players may play only one game in a week, and Ertz played last night for the Eagles. For the Cardinals, the NFL’s only undefeated team, this acquisition of a 30-year-old three-time Pro Bowler is a clear sign that they have Super Bowl aspirations and want to add more pieces to the puzzle. Ertz has played all six games for the Eagles this season and scored his last touchdown as an Eagle on Thursday night. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/10/15/eagles-trade-zach-ertz-to-cardinals-for-tay-gowan-and-a-fifth-round-pick/
  10. Rodney McLeod will make his 2021 debut this weekend Posted by Josh Alper on October 1, 2021, 1:25 PM EDT The Eagles will have safety Rodney McLeod in the lineup as they try to send the Chiefs to a third straight loss this Sunday. McLeod has not played in the team’s first three games as he continued working his way back from last December’s torn ACL. He has been practicing fully and head coach Nick Sirianni said on Friday that he will be active for Sunday’s game. Sirianni did not specify the size of the role that McLeod will play, but there’s a need for help at safety after K'Von Wallace went on injured reserve earlier this week with a shoulder injury. Marcus Epps stepped in next to Anthony Harris when Wallace was hurt on Monday night. McLeod has started all 62 games he’s played since joining the Eagles in 2016. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/10/01/rodney-mcleod-will-make-his-2021-debut-this-weekend/
  11. Jaguars ship Gardner Minshew to Eagles Posted by Mike Florio on August 28, 2021, 10:19 AM EDT Getty Images The goofiest quarterback competition of 2021 ended with Trevor Lawrence beating out Gardner Minshew, who notoriously said last month that he hasn’t moved his bowels in weeks because "No. 2 is not an option.” Minshew will now have a chance, in theory, to become something more than No. 2 in Philadelphia. The Jaguars are trading Minshew to the Eagles, we’re told. Jacksonville gets a sixth-round pick in 2022. It can become a fifth-rounder based on playing time. Minshew, who inherited the starting job in Jacksonville in Week One of his rookie season after Nick Foles broke a collarbone, has 37 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions in two seasons. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Jalen Hurts remains the starter and Joe Flacco will be the backup. Minshew, at a base salary of only $850,000, provides depth in a 17-game season with the ever-present specter of COVID knocking players out, vaccinated or not. The Jaguars got Minshew in the sixth round of the 2019 draft. They presumably were hoping for more for Minshew, and it’s now safe to conclude (given what they took for him) that the quarterback competition was aimed at propping Minshew up in the hopes of getting more than what they got. And it didn’t work. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/08/28/jaguars-ship-gardner-minshew-to-eagles/
  12. Nick Sirianni: There’s "no rush” to name Jalen Hurts the starter Posted by Myles Simmons on August 5, 2021, 10:23 AM EDT Jalen Hurts is the best quarterback on the Eagles roster. Hurts has been taking the first-team reps during training camp. But Hurts is not Philadelphia’s starting quarterback — at least not yet. Head coach Nick Sirianni has been careful not to actually call Hurts the Eagles’ QB1, first during the offseason program and now during training camp. Ostensibly this is because Philadelphia wants to make sure Hurts goes out and earns the job. But Sirianni was still asked on Thursday why he’s been so hesitant to effectively call a spade a spade. "There’s just no rush there on having to do that,” Sirianni said during his press conference. "We just want him to continue to impress, and show like he has. We’re just not there yet.” With the start of the regular season still more than a month away, the Eagles don’t really have to be at that point yet. But unless something wildly dramatic happens, that is going to be Hurts’ job. Sirianni can wait or just outright say it, but the outcome is highly likely to be the same. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/08/05/nick-sirianni-theres-no-rush-to-name-jalen-hurts-the-starter/
  13. Eagles sign three more draft choices, leaving only two unsigned Posted by Charean Williams on June 4, 2021, 3:54 PM EDT The Eagles announced Friday that they have signed three more draft choices. Defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu, defensive end Tarron Jackson and defensive end Patrick Johnson are under contract. They join the team’s four draft choices who signed Thursday. Offensive lineman Landon Dickerson, a second-round choice, and safety JaCoby Stevens, a sixth-round selection, are the team’s only draft choices left unsigned. Tuipulotu, a sixth-round choice out of USC, totaled 23 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and two sacks in six games for the Trojans last season. He earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors. The 22-year-old finished his college career with 104 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks in 33 games. Jackson, a sixth-round pick, made first-team All-America honors and was the Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year in 2020. He helped Coastal Carolina to an 11-1 record with a team-high 8.5 sacks and 14 tackles for loss. Jackson played 48 career games and finished as the Chanticleers’ all-time leader in sacks with 26.5, which was second in conference history. Johnson, a seventh-round choice, is the all-time leader in sacks in Tulane’s history. He totaled 24.5 in 49 career games. He tied for third among FBS schools in 2020 with 10 sacks to go along with 14.5 tackles for loss. In his career, Johnson also made 135 career tackles, 40 tackles for loss, 11 pass deflections and six forced fumbles. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/06/04/eagles-sign-three-more-draft-choices-leaving-only-two-unsigned/
  14. Eagles sign Nate Meadors, seven undrafted rookies The Eagles announced several signings on Friday, including an experienced addition to their cornerback group. Nate Meadors has signed a contract with the team. Meadors signed with the Vikings after going undrafted in 2019 and had two tackles in two games as a rookie. He played in another game for Minnesota last year and closed out the season with the Jaguars, who waived him earlier this month. The Eagles drafted Zech McPhearson in the fourth round and bring back cornerbacks Darius Slay, Avonte Maddox, Kevon Seymour, and Craig James. Seven undrafted free agents are also joining the team for this weekend’s rookie minicamp. They are Texas A&M wide receiver Jhamon Ausbon, Buffalo guard Kayode Awosika, Iowa State defensive end JaQuan Bailey, Indiana center Harry Crider, Florida wide receiver Trevon Grimes, and Wake Forest quarterback Jamie Newman. Newman transferred to Georgia, but did not play in 2020. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/05/14/eagles-sign-nate-meadors-seven-undrafted-rookies/
  15. Eagles announce full capacity at Lincoln Financial Field for 2021 Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney announced Tuesday the city will lift stadium capacity restrictions next month. On May 21, seating limitations will increase to 50 percent at Philadelphia stadiums and arenas with all capacity restrictions ending June 11. The Eagles welcomed the news, anticipating all 67,594 seats filled for their home games this season. The team had no fans at Lincoln Financial Field in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Eagles released a statement from team president Don Smolenski on Tuesday afternoon. "Today’s announcement by the City of Philadelphia to lift stadium capacity limits in time for the start of the 2021 NFL season is tremendous news for the Philadelphia Eagles, our fans, and the community,” Smolenski said. "We are excited to welcome our fans home and look forward to Lincoln Financial Field returning to form as an unrivaled home-field advantage for our team. We have always been committed to providing our fans a great gameday experience in a safe, clean, and friendly environment. As we look ahead to a full stadium, we encourage our community to get vaccinated.” https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/05/11/eagles-announce-full-capacity-for-2021/
