The New York Daily News reports the Jets turned down a fourth-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for Robby Anderson before last month's trade deadline.

The Eagles ended up acquiring Golden Tate instead. Anderson would have been a better fit for what the Eagles' offense has lacked this season. As for Anderson, he will be a restricted free agent at season's end. Struggling through an injury-marred campaign after an offseason littered with off-the-field issues, Anderson probably is not going to get a multi-year offer from Gang Green.

CBS Sports' Bryant McFadden reports Patrick Peterson's "ideal trade destination" is the Saints, while the Patriots and Eagles have also showed interested in acquiring Peterson.

The Cardinals have been adamant that Peterson won't be traded, but Peterson has requested a trade and "wants out" of the desert. Arizona has zero use for Peterson as the worst team in the league in a complete rebuild. Peterson offers this organization more value by bringing in draft picks/young players to aid in the process while he's still in his prime and can fetch a nice haul. Still 28, Peterson is signed through 2020. Peterson played his college ball at LSU.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have talked about a DeVante Parker trade with the Eagles.

The Dolphins have reportedly spoken with "multiple" teams, but the Eagles are the first identified by name. Parker is a de facto healthy scratch for Sunday's game with the Lions. The Dolphins appear desperate to move on before next week's trade deadline.

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.
Tue, Sep 18, 2018 06:45:00 PM

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.
Tue, Sep 18, 2018 04:02:00 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.
Tue, Sep 11, 2018 05:59:00 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.

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.

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.
Tue, Sep 4, 2018 01:13:00 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.
Sat, Sep 1, 2018 04:42:00 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.
Sat, Sep 1, 2018 04:37:00 PM

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.
Sat, Sep 1, 2018 12:14:00 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.
Fri, Aug 31, 2018 12:14:00 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.

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.
Thu, Aug 23, 2018 08:30:00 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.
