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.

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.

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.

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.
Apr 23 - 3:24 PM

MMQB's Peter King reports the Eagles want to trade out of the No. 32 pick.

The Eagles aren't scheduled to pick again until No. 130 after trading their second- and third-round picks to Cleveland (Carson Wentz) and Buffalo (Ronald Darby), respectively. Philly likely wants to move down to grab more picks. The No. 32 pick is the final selection offering a five-year contract, so the Eagles' pick should attract a lot of interest at the end of Thursday night.

The Eagles could target running back in the upcoming draft.

It's a position of need for the Eagles, who lost LeGarrette Blount during free agency. Jay Ajayi, who joined the team at last year's trade deadline, is also nearing the end of his rookie contract. VP of Football Operations Howie Roseman expressed regret at not landing one of the top running backs in last year's draft and may look to rectify that by selecting one early in 2018. Former Eagles scout and current NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah had Philadelphia taking Georgia RB Sony Michel with the 32nd pick in his latest mock draft. If that prediction comes true, it would be the first time the Eagles drafted a running back in the first round since 1986.

Free agent CB Daryl Worley has been charged with driving under the influence, a violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, disorderly conduct-fighting, and other related offenses.

The charges stem from an incident Sunday morning in Philadelphia in which Worley allegedly was tasered after becoming "combative" with police. A gun was allegedly recovered during the arrest. The Eagles released Worley on Sunday.

Eagles released CB Daryl Worley.

This was expected following Sunday's incident. It has not been specified what charges the 23-year-old is facing. Worley was arrested early Sunday morning after becoming "combative" with Philadelphia police when they showed up to find him passed out inside a vehicle blocking the highway. A gun was also recovered during the arrest. Worley was acquired from Carolina in exchange for Torrey Smith last month and the Eagles save $670,000 in cap space by releasing him.
Apr 15 - 5:40 PM

Eagles released P Donnie Jones.

Jones originally retired, but he was released by the team on Wednesday after telling them he wanted to continue his career. One of the better punters in the league, Jones joins a suddenly stacked free agent market currently topped by Marquette King.
Apr 5 - 8:56 AM

Chargers signed DB Jaylen Watkins, formerly of the Eagles, to a one-year contract.

Watkins was non-tendered by Philadelphia after logging just 167 snaps last season. The 25-year-old will likely focus on special teams in Los Angeles.
Mar 30 - 1:23 PM

NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports S Malcolm Jenkins underwent surgery to repair ligaments in his left thumb.

Wyche added that Jenkins described the procedure merely as "offseason maintenance" and does not expect to miss any time leading into the season. Jenkins has recorded at least two interceptions in each of the last five seasons and is considered one of the league's best safeties.

Lions signed RB LeGarrette Blount, formerly of the Eagles, to a one-year contract.

This backfield has a bunch of bodies but no clear lead guy. Blount reunites with new coach Matt Patricia, who was on the Patriots' staff when Blount was in New England. He figures to be the favorite for early-down and goal-line work with the Lions, with Theo Riddick still the preferred pass-down back. Ameer Abdullah is left in the cold. We wouldn't be shocked if he was dealt.
Mar 16 - 10:39 PM

Eagles released DE Vinny Curry.

The move was time-sensitive as $5 million of Curry's $9 million base salary would have been guaranteed on Sunday. The Eagles tried convincing Curry to accept a pay cut but the two sides could never reach a compromise. Curry probably saw the writing on the wall after Philadelphia acquired Michael Bennett from Seattle earlier this month. The 29-year-old dominated last year, earning PFF's No. 10 grade among 4-3 defensive ends. He should attract widespread interest on the open market.
Mar 16 - 3:38 PM

Saints signed CB Patrick Robinson, formerly of the Eagles, to a four-year, $20 million contract.

The deal comes with $10 million guaranteed including a $5 million signing bonus. Saints fans don't have fond memories of Robinson, their first-round pick in the 2010 draft who struggled with injuries and ineffectiveness before falling into journeyman status with the Colts, Chargers, and eventually Eagles. Robinson broke out at slot corner for the Super Bowl champs last year, however, becoming one of the stingiest inside cover men in the game. He'll fit nicely between Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley in New Orleans' talented secondary.
Mar 14 - 2:29 PM

Bucs signed NT Beau Allen, formerly of the Eagles, to a three-year, $15 million contract.

With incentives, the deal can reach up to $16.5 million. Allen is a hulking 6'3/327 and should step right in as the Bucs' nose tackle next to three-technique Gerald McCoy after 2017 experiment DT Chris Baker ended up a colossal failure. Allen doesn't offer much on the stat sheet but should help improve a Bucs run defense that was 23rd in yards allowed.
Mar 14 - 10:35 AM

Eagles released TE Brent Celek.

The move saves the Eagles $5 million in cap space. It also ends Celek's 11-year run in Philadelphia. Celek was a big contributor early in his career but secured a career-low 13 catches last year while taking a backseat to Zach Ertz. The 33-year-old doesn't have a ton left but can still help teams as a blocking tight end.
