NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bills are unlikely to trade LeSean McCoy.

The running-back-needy Eagles placed a call to Buffalo this week but those talks didn't get very far. McCoy has history with Philadelphia—it's where he started his career—but he's well-liked in the Bills' locker room and Buffalo values his veteran leadership. Per Rapoport, it would likely take a second-rounder and more to pry McCoy away from Western New York, which the Eagles rightly feel is an exorbitant asking price. The 10-year vet is under contract through 2019.

Speaking Wednesday, coach Sean McDermott didn't totally dismiss the possibility of trading LeSean McCoy.

"We’re just looking forward to the Houston Texans," McDermott said. "We get calls all the time. Incoming calls happen all the time. [GM] Brandon [Beane] and I talk a lot. I won’t get into any more detail than that. LeSean is a valuable member of our football team and we'll leave it at that." McDermott downplays the swirling rumors that popped up Tuesday, but did not shoot them down completely. We'd bet the Bills would love to get a mid-rounder back.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles "have not pursued a trade" for holdout Le'Veon Bell and "have no plans to do so."

Bell singled out the Eagles as a potential destination spot for himself when he spoke to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler last week, but the Eagles don't appear to be willing to pay the Steelers' asking price and then hand Bell a gargantuan contract. With Jay Ajayi done for the year with a torn ACL, the Eagles' initial plan looks to be to lean on Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood.

Former Eagles and Bucs DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim suffered from Grade 2 CTE prior to his death last October.

Te'o-Nesheim died after a night of heavy drinking, and it was revealed he had alcohol and pills in his system. Brain doctors believe Te'o-Nesheim suffered "approximately 100 concussions, all from contact sports, 10 with loss of consciousness." He was a third-round pick of the Eagles in 2010.

Eagles waived WR DeAndre Carter.

Carter was released when the Eagles signed RB Josh Adams off the practice squad. Carter played 53 snaps in the opener, but then lost snaps to Kamar Aiken and Shelton Gibson this past weekend.

Free agent WR Jordan Matthews worked out for the Eagles on Tuesday.

The Eagles are running low on bodies at receiver, and Matthews is an #OldFriend. His addition would be mixed news for Nelson Agholor, who would maybe have to spend less time in the slot.
Sep 18 - 4:02 PM

Free agent QB Paxton Lynch visited the Eagles on Tuesday.

Lynch has now visited the Eagles, Lions and Bills since he was cut loose by Denver. Lynch needs a team to decide it is worth carrying three quarterbacks to sign him. His odds aren't great.
Sep 11 - 5:59 PM

Free agent Corey Coleman visited the Patriots on Monday and will visit the Eagles on Tuesday.

Both teams have drastic needs at wideout, while the 2015 first-rounder is still only 24 years old. Coleman's career has been derailed by fluke hand injuries, though his attitude has also been a legitimate issue. Either spot would offer a dream shot at turning his career around, but Coleman will be in a "one strike and you're out"-type situation wherever he lands.
Sep 10 - 3:55 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent WR Breshad Perriman is working out for the Eagles.

Perriman worked out for the Bills and Jets last week, but he did not find a deal. The Eagles could use some receiver help with Alshon Jeffery still sidelined, but they are likely just doing their due diligence on the former first-round pick. Philly is also working out Kamar Aiken.
Sep 10 - 11:00 AM

Lions signed RB Donnel Pumphrey.

It is a confusing signing for a team which already has five backs on the active roster. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Lions like Pumphrey's ability as a returner, which could be bad news for Ameer Abdullah's roster spot. Pumphrey is a long-shot to return fantasy value this season.
Sep 4 - 1:13 PM

Eagles waived RB Josh Adams.

An undrafted rookie out of Notre Dame, Adams earned some love from the coaching staff during camp, but it was not enough to get him on the initial roster. The Eagles likely hope to keep him on the practice squad.
Sep 1 - 4:42 PM

Eagles waived/released WR Markus Wheaton, WR Kamar Aiken, DE Steven Means, RB Josh Adams, CB De'Vante Bausby, LB Asantay Brown, TE Billy Brown, QB Joe Callahan, DT Winston Craig, WR Rashard Davis, TE Anthony Denham, G Aaron Evans, DE Danny Ezechukwu, S Ironhead Gallon, G Darrell Greene, QB Christian Hackenberg, T Taylor Hart, RB Matt Jones, DE Joe Ostman, WR Darius Prince, RB Donnel Pumphrey, DT Elijah Qualls, S Jeremy Reaves, DT Aziz Shittu, CB Chandon Sullivan, C Jon Toth, WR Bryce Treggs, WR Greg Ward, LB Jaboree Williams, LB Kyle Wilson, and WR Tim Wilson.

Philly also waived/injured CB D.J. Killings, TE Gannon Sinclair, and OT Toby Weathersby and placed S Chris Maragos on the reserve/PUP list. The moves get the Eagles to the 53-man roster limit. Wheaton is running out of NFL chances.

Eagles waived RB Donnel Pumphrey.

Pumphrey has been a recent rare swing and a miss by Howie Roseman. He was the Eagles' fourth-round pick last year and was never a blip on the radar. Pumphrey was talked about as the Eagles' next Darren Sproles but was never healthy and is incredibly small at 5'9/176. He doesn't have an NFL future.
Sep 1 - 12:14 PM

Eagles waived QB Christian Hackenberg.

The former second-round pick will again be subject to waivers. We highly doubt anyone claims him considering nobody did in June when rosters were at 90 players. Now trimmed to 53, Hackenberg may have to take a practice squad spot.
Aug 31 - 12:14 PM

Eagles released LB Corey Nelson.

The Eagles signed UDFA LB Jaboree Williams in the corresponding roster move. Nelson's release clears about $1 million in cap space. The 26-year-old was a key reserve for Denver early in his career but was mostly limited to special teams work last season. He'll look to catch on elsewhere as veteran depth. Multiple beat writers have suggested the Broncos could be interested in bringing him back.
Aug 26 - 12:15 PM

Eagles fourth-round rookie CB Avonte Maddox could open the season as the team's starting nickel corner.

"Nothing has been settled there," DC Jim Schwartz said. "[Thursday's game] will go a long way to deciding who is going to be out there in the opener." Maddox has been competing with Sidney Jones throughout camp in the slot. Although Jones has the experience and still has a lead on Maddox, Schwartz and coach Doug Pederson have made it clear Thursday's preseason contest versus the Browns will go a long way in deciding who starts in Week 1.
Aug 23 - 8:30 AM

Coach Doug Pederson said Nick Foles (shoulder) will play "about a half" during Thursday's preseason game versus the Browns.

Foles exited last week's game early with a strained shoulder but will suit up with the starters Thursday for an entire half. LT Jason Peters and RB Darren Sproles have officially been ruled out. With Jay Ajayi nursing a lower body injury, Wendell Smallwood and Matt Jones are expected to be the only active running backs against the Browns. Either way, this is terrific news for Foles as he appears ready to go for Week 1 if Carson Wentz (knee) is held out.
Aug 21 - 11:27 AM

Eagles WR Bryce Treggs (hamstring) is expected to miss a few weeks.

Treggs suffered a hamstring strain versus the Patriots Thursday. The team is already thin at receiver as Alshon Jeffery (rotator cuff surgery), Nelson Agholor (lower body), Mack Hollins (undisclosed), and Markus Wheaton (undisclosed) are all recovering and have missed several practices in recent weeks. Although Treggs wasn't expected to play an integral role during the season, the Eagles' sudden need at receiver could bolster Mike Wallace into Week 1 WR4/Flex territory. Stay tuned.
Aug 17 - 11:05 AM

Nick Foles said he was "optimistic" about his shoulder injury.

"It just sort of got jarred in a funny way as I was following through, but you know it feels good and we’ll check it out more thoroughly." Foles said. He's expected to undergo tests Friday. The Eagles are understandably being overcautious and will likely return with good news on his status Friday.
Aug 17 - 9:20 AM

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.
