NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles will not tender restricted free agent DB Jaylen Watkins.

Restricted free agents of Watkins' caliber usually draw an original round tender, but the Eagles are in penny-pinching mode as they look to create some cap flexibility. A solid depth option who can play corner or safety, Watkins should find a new home.

Colts hired Eagles OC Frank Reich as head coach.

It's a five-year contract. Eagles coach Doug Pederson has now lost both his coordinator and quarterbacks coach after upsetting the Patriots in the Super Bowl. The Chargers' offensive coordinator from 2014-15 before heading to Philadelphia, Reich is a solid hire. He was a big part of the Eagles' offensive success in 2017. The Colts have hired a talented coaching staff so far and will look to add an offensive coordinator in the ensuing weeks. Andrew Luck's health remains the Colts' biggest question mark heading into 2018.

Vikings hired Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo as offensive coordinator.

It's a coup for the Vikings, as DeFilippo had reportedly been "leaning toward" staying in Philadelphia after being passed over for the Bears and Cardinals' head-coaching vacancies. On the rise since a well-regarded showing as the Browns' offensive coordinator in 2015, DeFilippo has earned raves for his work with Carson Wentz. DeFilippo is inheriting excellent talent at running back and receiver, but doesn't yet know which quarterback he will be coaching in 2018. It stands to reason DeFilippo will employ some of the play-calling optimization techniques he learned under Doug Pederson in Philly.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports the Eagles attempted to reacquire LeSean McCoy from the Bills in a package centered around Jordan Matthews.

It makes for a fun story, but really nothing else. The Eagles and Bills were able to agree to a deal for Matthews, with the Bills taking the oft-injured wideout in exchange for CB Ronald Darby. In the effort to get McCoy back in Philly, EVP Howie Roseman was attempting to "reverse" ex-coach Chip Kelly's mistakes after Kelly was the one who traded McCoy. The Eagles instead later signed LeGarrette Blount and traded for Jay Ajayi. McCoy, 29, has two years left on his deal.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune confirms the Vikings hope to interview Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo for their offensive coordinator vacancy.

However, the paper also reports that DeFilippo is "leaning toward staying in Philadelphia." The Eagles cannot interview DeFilippo until after Sunday's Super Bowl. DeFilippo has been a rising coaching star for a few years, and has earned raves for his work with Carson Wentz.

Redskins signed RB Byron Marshall off the Eagles' practice squad.

Washington needed to add someone to the backfield with Rob Kelley expected to miss "multiple games." An undrafted sophomore out of Oregon, Marshall gained 64 yards on 19 carries with the Eagles last season.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, two teams have approached the Lions in the last week about trading for the rights to Calvin Johnson.

Schefter colleague Chris Mortensen said the Eagles and Jaguars are the two teams. The Lions seem open to the idea and have told interested teams to reach out to Johnson and gauge his interest. However, Johnson's interest in a potential return remains minimal, making it unlikely that a deal will come to fruition ahead of Tuesday's 4 PM ET trade deadline. The Lions have maintained Johnson's rights since his retirement at the end of 2015.

Browns signed WR Bryce Treggs off the Eagles' practice squad.

The second-year wideout has 4.39 speed at 6'/185 and gives the Browns another wideout after coach Hue Jackson again chastised Kenny Britt in the media after the Week 4 loss. Treggs caught three balls for 80 yards in limited snaps with the Eagles as a rookie. Jordan Leslie was cut to make room.

Eagles worked out free agent RB Kenjon Barner.

The Eagles need a body with Darren Sproles on injured reserve, and Barner is familiar with the system. Barner would almost certainly be limited to special teams if he ended up back in Philly.

Eagles waived/released LB Nate Gerry, TE Billy Brown, OT Dillon Gordon, OG Darrell Greene, DT Justin Hamilton, OT Taylor Hart, P Cameron Johnston, RB Byron Marshall, C Aaron Neary, CB C.J. Smith, WR Greg Ward, CB Jomal Wiltz, DE Alex McCalister, S Tre Sullivan and OG Dallas Thomas.

Gerry was the No. 184 overall pick of the draft. A college safety, he's trying to make the switch to linebacker. He'll likely look to continue the transition on the practice squad.

Eagles released WR Bryce Treggs.

Undrafted out of Cal in 2016, Treggs caught on with the Eagles last summer and managed three catches for 80 yards over 125 snaps. He could stay on as a practice squadder.
Sat, Sep 2, 2017 04:07:00 PM

Eagles released QB Matt McGloin.

It's been a hard, fast fall for McGloin since he injured his shoulder in relief of Derek Carr last Week 17. He's gone from getting tendered at the second-round level as a 2016 restricted free agent to out on the street. McGloin should get plenty of workouts, but looked dreadful this summer. It's possible he's not the same since his injury.

Eagles waived WR Paul Turner with an injury settlement.

He's still recovering from a fractured scapula but should be ready in a few weeks. A standout at camp last year in one of the league's worst receiving corps, Turner proved to be extremely pedestrian this summer.

Eagles released CB Ron Brooks.

A coach's pet to DC Jim Schwartz from their Buffalo days, Brooks is no longer needed after the acquisition of CB Ronald Darby. It'll be Darby and Jalen Mills as the starters, with Patrick Robinson coming in as the nickel. Brooks, 28 in October, suffered a torn quad midway through last season.

Saints acquired LS Jon Dorenbos from the Eagles in exchange for a 2019 seventh-round pick.

Dorenbos, 37, had been with the Eagles for the previous 11 seasons. Philly is moving forward with Rick Lovato. Dorenbos became famous last year when he advanced to the finals of America's Got Talent as a magician.

Jets acquired S Terrence Brooks from the Eagles in exchange for CB Dexter McDougle.

A core special teamer, Brooks played just three defensive snaps last season. The Jets are his third team in as many seasons.
Sun, Aug 27, 2017 09:49:00 AM

Saints signed DE Bryan Braman, formerly of the Eagles.

An ace special teams player, 30-year-old Braman doesn't play defense.
Wed, Aug 23, 2017 02:46:00 PM

Seahawks acquired T/G Matt Tobin and a 2018 seventh-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick.

Seattle is scrambling for tackle options after losing George Fant. Tobin started at right guard for the 2015 Eagles, showing promise as a run blocker but getting destroyed in pass protection. He was demoted into a deep reserve role last season. Tobin should only be viewed as depth for the Seahawks.

Eagles released Ryan Mathews.

This was always the expectation after Mathews was medically cleared of his neck injury Tuesday. The move saves Philly $4 million against the cap. If he actually is healthy, Mathews should latch on somewhere in the near future.
Tue, Aug 15, 2017 11:41:00 AM

Bills acquired WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for CB Ronald Darby.

Clearly on the outs with Philly heading into the final year of his rookie deal, there had been persistent trade rumors surrounding Matthews, and the Eagles finally pulled the trigger on a deal which returns a starting corner they desperately needed. The move also works out for Matthews, who should immediately slot in as the No. 1 option for a now Sammy Watkins-less offense. Coming off the board in the 11th round before the trade, Matthews should be valued much closer to the sixth or seventh moving forward, and he has the upside for more if the new coaching staff opens up the passing game.
