Eagles News: Philadelphia’s best shot of the offseason
Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …
Russell Wilson, Tyreek Hill and the best move of the offseason for the NFL’s 32 teams – The Athletic
Philadelphia Eagles. The acquisition of AJ Brown on draft night transformed the Eagles from a team that could compete to win the NFC East into a team that could compete to win the NFC. And somehow that understates Brown’s impact. In the short term, he serves as something of a force multiplier for the passing game, catching the attention of DeVonta Smith, Dallas Goedert and Quez Watkins while providing his own All-Pro-level game. In the medium term, he gives the Eagles the best chance to properly assess Jalen Hurts as a potential franchise quarterback. And in the long run, he makes the Eagles a more attractive landing spot for a potential veteran quarterback to be named later.

Edwards has posted 75.0 ratings or better in two of his three NFL seasons and is one of the most underrated players in the league.

WR Quez Watkins. The third-year widened had a few splashes this spring, including a 40-plus-yard touchdown catch on OTAs that prompted quarterback Jalen Hurts to get into the dance. Most of the buzz about Watkins, however, comes from the coaching staff and management. They talk about him every chance they get, believing he has the tools to be a very productive receiver. Finding targets for him might be the biggest problem with AJ Brown, DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert all needing the rock, but Watkins will be in on it.
How Texans rookie guarantee could delay Eagles deal with Cam Jurgens – Reuters Sports News
Unlike two decades ago, rookie contracts are now based on where a player is taken in the draft. Jurgens, who was ranked 51st overall, is expected to earn a four-year contract worth $6.9 million and a signing bonus of $2.2 million, according to Spotrac. It could become a situation in which Jurgens decides to sign a few of the selections taken in front of him once, like New Orleans Saints cornerback Alontae Taylor or Chicago Bears safety Jaquan Brisker, sign their deals, with representatives of the Eagles and Jurgens to see if they received guaranteed deals.
Dallas Goedert seizes the opportunity to be TE1 – PE.com
The first question from the shoot to tight end Dallas Goedert when he sat down to meet the media in early June made perfect sense, because everyone’s kind of wondering the same thing: what’s the cap for you in 2022 with an offense returning largely intact and with a proven new veteran receiver in AJ Brown joining the party? Goedert’s answer was straight out of “that’s how veterans answer this kind of question”, but inside of that, well, there was a hint of high expectations. “I just want to keep improving every day. I think I can improve every day. I think there are a lot of things I can improve and keep improving, which is really exciting” “I was able to learn, work on some things in OTAs (Organized Team Activities), get some corrections from coaches and continue to use that time to improve and prepare for a great season this year,” Goedert said. Goedert’s time since OTAs ended has been and continues to be busy – he’s moving into a new house (sorry, Avonte Maddox isn’t included in the plans) and he’s been working with Lane Johnson at the training center Plus, Goedert attended Tight Ends University, a camp that brought together many of the league’s best and so, really, the job is never done.
10 reasons the Giants will be a dumpster fire this season – PhillyVoice
If they improve this season and are just ‘regular villains’ as opposed to the embarrassment of a laughing stock they were in 2021, they may not be able to land a superior quarterback. in 2023. The Giants aren’t the only really bad team. the low. You also have the Bears, Falcons, Panthers, Seahawks, Lions, Texans, Jets, and arguments could be made for the others. They are all strong contenders for top draft picks. There are also currently five teams with two first-round picks in 2023. These are, in order of positioning in the 2022 draft: Lions, Texans, Seahawks, dolphins, Eagles. Each of these teams may need a quarterback next offseason and will have a handiness to trade. Teams that have enough talent to be at least mediocre without an ideal quarterback are thought to be in “NFL purgatory.” Somehow, even with the NFL’s worst record in the last five years combined, the Giants have moved past fourth overall only once in that span (and they’ve taken a running back, lol). They could pick outside the top five again around 2023, even if they’re awful. It’s not purgatory. The Giants would like to be in purgatory. They are more in an “NFL Extended Stay Hell”.
Cowboys have least invested in WR in terms of draft capital and salary of any NFC East team – Blogging The Boys
2. Philadelphia Eagles: $30,901,514. AJ Brown = $25 million. DeVonta Smith = $5 million. Quez Watkins = $866,166. The Eagles have tried all sorts of things at wide receiver, from early draft picks to getting a star from another team. Just a few years ago they gave Alshon Jeffery a lot of money to be the team’s WR1 but it didn’t work out and he was released last offseason which cost 5.5 million dollars to the team. They reshaped the group by making huge investments in each of the last two projects, the most recent being the trade with Tennessee to acquire AJ Brown. The Eagles immediately turned around and signed Brown to a four-year, $100 million contract.
Washington Commanders fans believe Dan Snyder will survive as team owner despite congressional pressure – Hogs Haven
In short, while Dan Snyder is undoubtedly a terrible owner, in the commercial calculus that must take place between league owners, it may be more difficult for them to try to eject him than to simply push him in. a corner and live with his antics. There are even some who think the rest of the NFL is happy to have Dan Snyder. For example, other NFC East owners should view Dan Snyder’s ownership of the Washington franchise as a competitive advantage. Playing against a weak team twice a year means more opportunities to reach the playoffs. Even among non-divisional opponents, having an owner like Snyder running a franchise that consistently underperforms means less competition in a league where competition is paramount.

Running back still a needed position for the Saints – Canal Street Chronicles
All that is known at this time is that Kamara’s offseason incident could result in a suspension for the 2022 season for a number of games yet to be determined. However, that uncertainty leaves the Saints with a question mark at running back. What if Alvin Kamara was indeed suspended for much of the 2022 season? Can the Saints really count on 32-year-old Mark Ingram to handle the workload in what many hope will be a high-powered attack? Is there a reason Saints UDFA rookie Abram Smith wasn’t drafted into the 2022 NFL Draft?
