NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks believes the chances of Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood making the team are "very good."

Shorr-Parks gushes that "no player has helped themselves more during training camp" than Smallwood, even getting a nod from coach Doug Pederson as a "key special teams player." Shorr-Parks also notes that "things are not looking good" for Donnel Pumphrey, who's been sidelined with a lower body injury, and Matt Jones, who "hasn't really done much to earn a spot." That would leave Jay Ajayi, Corey Clement, Darren Sproles, Smallwood, and Josh Adams as the Eagles' backfield rotation heading into the season.

Eagles signed QB Christian Hackenberg.

Tom Pelissero suggests this signing isn't a reflection of Carson Wentz's (knee) or Nick Foles' (neck) health. Nate Sudfeld is only 24 and has regular season (albeit minimal) experience, but Hackenberg's involvement could be a way for Philadelphia to create competition at the No. 3 role. Hackenberg went unclaimed on waivers after his Oakland release and was rumored to try a stint in the CFL prior to signing.

The Eagles signed Executive VP of Football Operations Howie Roseman and head coach Doug Pederson to contract extensions.

Roseman and Pederson received matching contracts that should take them through the 2022 season. The Eagles exercised Pederson's fifth-year option back in May, but locking him up well into the future was always in the cards. Pederson proved to be one of the most progressive minds in all of football last season, constantly deploying in-game play-calling from the numerous econometrics and data-driven staff Roseman helped surround him with. Same goes for Howie. Arguably no GM the past two seasons has had a more forward-thinking and calculated approach to his own team's success than Roseman has had with the Eagles. Philadelphia unsurprisingly went for it on fourth down 26 times during the regular season, converting a league-high 17 attempts. This extension tacks on four years to Pederson's and Roseman's current deal.

The Athletic's Sheil Kapadia believes Darren Sproles could have a "real role" on offense this season.

Kapadia also believes the Eagles will monitor Jay Ajayi's carries for a stretch run and, in doing so, still use a running back rotation. It's worth noting Ajayi is entering the final year of his contract. Sproles has received first-team reps in camp, specifically on third down and in Philadelphia's two-minute offense. The 35-year-old veteran has said 2018 will be his final season, so we still expect Corey Clement to be used as a viable change-of-pace/receiving back more often than not.

Eagles released WR Marquess Wilson.

The once-hyped former seventh-rounder has not appeared in a regular season game since 2016. He has nine catches since 2015. Getting cut at this stage of training camp — the very beginning — bodes poorly for his NFL future. Wilson turns 26 in September.
Jul 24 - 4:09 PM

The Newark Star Ledger expects the Eagles to re-sign free agent Corey Graham.

Graham hasn't had any interest in a slow moving safety market. An every-down starter with Buffalo, Graham had a sub-package role in Philly last year, but was a solid veteran presence behind Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod. The Eagles may look to bring back Graham before training camp.
Jul 17 - 12:10 PM

DeMarco Murray announced his retirement after seven seasons.

A third-round pick of the Cowboys in 2011, Murray was one of the most productive running backs in football during his prime. The former Oklahoma Sooner earned three Pro Bowl nods over his seven seasons and was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2014. He led the league with 1,845 rushing yards that year while guiding Dallas to a division title. The 30-year-old probably could have continued his career as a backup—the Dolphins, Lions, Saints and Seahawks were among teams interested in him this offseason—but ultimately chose to hang up his cleats. For his career, Murray totaled 7,174 rushing yards and 55 touchdowns (49 rushing, six receiving) over 99 games for Dallas, Philadelphia and Tennessee.

Free agent S Corey Graham confirms he want to return for his age-33 season in 2018.

Graham also said he would be open to re-signing with the Eagles. Beat writer Jimmy Kempski floated it as a possibility two weeks ago. Although Graham was no longer an every-down player in 2017, he was effective as a part-timer.
Jun 14 - 9:52 PM

Browns signed LB Mychal Kendricks, formerly of the Eagles, to a one-year contract.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported this over 24 hours ago, but Kendricks made a big stink about it through the media, saying the deal wasn't complete. Now, it is. Kendricks is coming off a really strong year in Philly where he appeared in 18-of-19 games, including the playoffs, and was a 16-game starter. He received strong marks from Pro Football Focus for his run defense and wasn't a liability in coverage. Kendricks has a chance to be an every-down player in Cleveland.
Jun 4 - 9:14 PM

Browns signed LB Mychal Kendricks to a one-year contract.

The move should allow Jamie Collins to focus more on edge rushing opposite Myles Garrett. Kendricks was released by the Eagles for salary cap reasons, but he is coming off a terrific season as a run defender, and was passable in pass coverage. Kendricks played strong-side linebacker in Philly. He will team with MLB Joe Schobert and WLB Christian Kirksey to round out Cleveland's linebacker unit. Schobert may now come off the field on passing downs.
Jun 3 - 3:19 PM

Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice believes the Eagles could look to re-sign free agent S Corey Graham.

Coach Doug Pederson said last month the team would "love" to have him back and with Mychal Kendricks' $6 million salary coming off the books yesterday (he was designated as a post-June 1 cut), the Eagles finally have the cap space to make that happen. Graham performed well last year, logging 34 tackles and two interceptions over 367 defensive snaps. Kempski also suggested the Eagles could use some of their newfound cap space on veteran DT Cedric Thornton, who worked out for them last month.

Eagles released SLB Mychal Kendricks.

Kendricks was designated as a post-June 1 release, clearing $6 million in cap space while leaving behind $1.6 million in dead money. The move comes after the Eagles (again) failed to find a trade partner for their two-down thumper. Kendricks wanted to play all three downs. Going on 28, Kendricks had one of his best seasons in 2018. Provided he's healthy — Kendricks is recovering from an ankle scope — he won't be on the open market for long. Linebacker is a position of need for the Eagles.
May 22 - 3:43 PM

Free agent DT Cedric Thornton is visiting the Eagles on Wednesday.

The soon-to-be 30-year-old former Eagle made stops with the Cowboys and Bills the past two seasons after leaving Philly. Thornton left the Eagles the offseason coach Doug Pederson and DC Jim Schwartz took over.
May 16 - 12:05 PM

Eagles DE Derek Barnett had sports hernia surgery.

Barnett underwent surgery shortly after the Eagles' Super Bowl victory and is believed to be at 100 percent. Despite Philadelphia's incredible defensive line depth, Barnett played 506 of 1,165 possible snaps and recorded 21 tackles, 5 sacks, a forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries his rookie year. He'll continue to get more work in his sophomore campaign.
May 12 - 9:34 AM

Panthers signed RB Kenjon Barner, formerly of the Eagles.

Back where it all began. Barner was a sixth-round pick of the Panthers in 2013 and spent one year there before going to Philly for four years. Barner doesn't bring much offensively but can play special teams and return kicks. The Panthers just lost veteran RB Fozzy Whittaker to a torn ACL.
May 11 - 10:22 AM

Free agent DL Courtney Upshaw visited the Eagles.

It's Upshaw's first-known visit since his Falcons contract expired. The 28-year-old played 197 uneventful snaps last season. He would be a depth signing who would have to fight for his 53-man roster spot in Philadelphia.
May 8 - 5:09 PM

Free agent RB Terrance West visited the Eagles on Tuesday.

It's the first we've heard of West since his Ravens contract expired. With the Eagles having one of the league's most crowded backfields, West would have a hard time cracking the 53-man roster in Philadelphia.
May 8 - 2:54 PM

Eagles re-signed RB Darren Sproles to a one-year contract.

Terms of the contract are currently unknown. Head coach Doug Pederson stated in April the team was looking to bring Sproles back after his season was ended prematurely by a torn ACL. Without LeGarrette Blount around to vulture touches in 2018, both Sproles and Corey Clement will likely play a large role behind Jay Ajayi in the Eagles' backfield rotation. Sproles will turn 35 in June.
Apr 28 - 7:31 PM

Ravens traded up with the Eagles to select Louisville QB Lamar Jackson with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

The Ravens gave up the No. 52 and No. 125 picks as well as a 2019 second-rounder to land their quarterback of the future. It's a fitting sendoff for GM Ozzie Newsome, who is stepping down after this year. Jackson (6’2/216) followed his Heisman-winning sophomore year with a prolific 2017, averaging 6.9 yards per carry with 18 rushing TDs and tacking nearly three percentage points onto his completion rate (56.2 to 59.1) despite having 8.6% of his passes dropped, most among this year’s top QB prospects. Jackson’s ball location is inconsistent, but he offers highlight-reel playmaking ability as a runner and plus-armed passer with underrated pocket management and a pro-style background in Bobby Petrino’s offense. As a game-breaking dual threat, Jackson will need a commitment from his coaching staff to build its offense around him rather than change Jackson’s game to fit "their scheme." This is the first time since 1999 that five quarterbacks have gone in the first round.
Apr 26 - 11:37 PM

Raiders signed CB Daryl Worley, formerly of the Eagles.

Worley was cut by the Eagles after being arrested for DUI, violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, and disorderly conduct fighting on April 15. A 2016 third-round pick of the Panthers, Worley put some promising moments on tape as a rookie but struggled last season and fell into a rotation for snaps.
