  3. The Philadelphia Eagles have the the newly relocated Los Angeles Chargers listed as one of their opponents during the 2017 season. Last year, the Eagles had one of the fewest traveled seasons in the NFL. They ranked 25th in miles traveled with 11,186 with their furthest traveled team being away at the Seahawks stadium in Seattle. This coming season, the Eagles are in an interesting predicament. They have to travel to both the Los Angeles Rams stadium AND the Los Angeles Chargers stadium. There have been speculations that schedule makers could place both away games back to back and have the Eagles stay on the west coast for the two-week period rather than flying back to Philadelphia twice. The move would save the Eagles from unnecessary flying and would give them the ability to settle and prepare in Los Angeles weather for back to back weeks. Fans will have to wait until April to find out if the Eagles will in fact be able to double dip in Los Angeles when the official NFL schedules are released.

  5. The Philadelphia Eagles were not notable for having an amazing wide receiver cops this last season. The Eagles have a first round pick in the 2017 Draft this year thanks to the season that the Minnesota Vikings had and will most likely use it to draft a skill position player whether that be cornerback, running back, or wide receiver. Carson Wentz is a franchise player who needs a franchise wide receiver to throw to and Mike Williams provides a top option for him going forward. His size, speed, incredible jump range and will to win gives him an advantage over all of the receivers that the Eagles currently have on their roster. One obvious advantage that Williams would have if he came to Philadelphia would be the jump ball. Wentz loves to throw high balls and often overthrew his receivers making them uncatchable. Williams is the x-factor that would make those balls catchable at least half of the time. Williams also has a winning mentality. Coming off of an excellent National Championship performance, Williams shows that he is willing to compete even when the odds were not in his favor. If the Eagles were able to draft Williams as well as acquire a receiver through free agency, Wentz and the Eagles offense would already have an arsenal whose skill level is five times better than what they had in 2016. Only three months away until Eagles fans see the future of the franchise and possibly hear Williams name being called in the first round.

  7. Eagles Sign Cornerback from Canada

    The Philadelphia Eagles skill at cornerback has not been great in the past few years. They have a rising player in Jalen Mills, but other than that there hasn’t been any worth production from the position. The Eagles are looking to bolster the cornerback position over the offseason and started so by signing Mitchell White from the Ottawa RedBlacks to a reserve/future contract. This will now be the second consecutive year where the Eagles have signed a cornerback from Canada (Aaron Grymes in 2016 offseason). White formerly played for Michigan State before going to the Montreal Alouettes in the CFL. He then signed with the RedBlacks and went on to win the Grey Cup in 2016. White will be in competition for a roster spot with Grymes and other cornerbacks that the Eagles will most likely bring in this coming offseason.

  9. Were these Eagles predictions too bold for 2016?
  10. Creating the 2017 Eagles Dream Team

    What do you think of these three dream teams?
  11. The Philadelphia Eagles were far from perfect during their 2016 campaign, but they are a few roster moves away from becoming contenders if upper management can get a few details right and fit everything within their cap space, which is just below $10 million. Here at Pro Football Spot, myself and two other analysts have become the general manager of our own Eagles roster and have either cut, signed, or looked to the draft for players who we think will make the Eagles a contending team in 2017. Each different roster will include the main 53-man roster that contains current starters, players that become starters through the draft, or free agents that have come in and replace current players. Eagles Roster by Brendan Walker: @BWalkerASU QB1: Carson Wentz QB 2: Chase Daniel RB1: Christian McCaffrey (Draft) RB2: Darren Sproles RB3: Wendell Smallwood WR1: Alshon Jeffery (FA) WR2: Jordan Matthews WR3: Paul Turner WR4: Dorial Green-Beckham WR5: Bryce Treggs TE1: Zach Ertz TE2: Trey Burton TE3: Brent Celek LT: Jason Peters LG: Allen Barbre C: Jason Kelce RG: Brandon Brooks RT: Lane Johnson RE: Brandon Graham DT: Fletcher Cox DT: Bennie Logan LE: Vinny Curry OLB: Joe Walker MLB: Jordan Hicks OLB: Nigel Bradham CB1: Stephon Gillmore (FA) CB2: Jalen Mills CB3: (Late-round draft pick) S1: Rodney McLeod S2: Malcolm Jenkins Roster Cuts/Trades: Connor Barwin - Cap Hit/Production Mychal Kendricks - Production Ryan Mathews – Production/Age Leodis McKelvin - Age Ron Brooks - Age Nelson Agholor (Need to trade for picks or player for value; can’t just cut due to cap issues) Eagles Roster by Brian McDevitt: @BMcDevs QB1: Carson Wentz QB2: Chase Daniel RB1: Wendell Smallwood RB2: Darren Sproles RB3: Byron Marshall/Late Round Draft Pick WR1: Brandin Cooks (Trade from New Orleans) WR2: Jordan Matthews WR3: Dorial Green-Beckham WR4: Paul Turner WR5: Mid-Round Draft Pick TE1: Zach Ertz TE2: Trey Burton TE3: Brent Celek LT: Jason Peters LG: Allen Barbre C: Jason Kelce RG: Brandon Brooks RT: Lane Johnson DE: Brandon Graham DT: Fletcher Cox DT: Kawaan Short (FA) DE: Vinny Curry OLB: Nigel Bradham MLB: Jordan Hicks OLB: Jamie Collins (FA) CB1: Desmond King (Draft) CB2: Nolan Carroll CB3: Jalen Mills S1: Malcolm Jenkins S2: Rodney McLeod Roster Cuts/Trades: Ryan Mathews (Injury Prone) Kenjon Barner (Production) Nelson Agholor (Production - Release/Trade) Bennie Logan (Free Agency) Connor Barwin (Salary Cap Casualty) Mychal Kendricks (Production - Release/Trade) Leodis McKelvin (Production) Ron Brooks (Injury/Production) Eagles Roster by Regina Ham: @Regina_Ham QB1: Carson Wentz QB2: Mid-round draft pick RB1: Darren Sproles RB2: Ryan Mathews RB3: First round draft pick WR1: Jordan Matthews WR2: Dorial Green-Beckham WR3: mid round draft pick WR4: late round draft pick WR5: N/A TE1: Zach Ertz TE2: Brent Celek TE3: N/A LT: Jason Peters LG: Allen Barbre C: Jason Kelce RG: Dillon Gordon RT: Lane Johnson DE: Brandon Graham DT: Fletcher Cox DT: Halapoulivaati Vaitai DE: N/A OLB: N/A MLB: Jordan Hicks OLB: Mychal Kendricks CB1: Nolan Carroll CB2: Jalen Mills CB3: Mid-round draft pick S1: Malcolm Jenkins S2: Jaylen Watkins Notable Departures: Nelson Agholor (Clear production issues) Chase Daniels (no/little performance) If the Eagles want to mirror any of the three mock rosters shown above before the 2017 season begins, Howie Roseman will have to make some power moves with the little cap space that the Eagles have. It will be tough to resign all of the players on the current roster so cuts such as Connor Barwin and Leodis McKelvin make sense. Nevertheless, the Eagles will need to address the skill positions if they want to have any chance at being contenders next season. View full article
  12. Eagles Land High Draft Pick

    Before the 2016 regular season began, the Philadelphia Eagles traded quarterback Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings who were desperate to find a replacement for Teddy Bridgewater. Based on how the Vikings season turned out, the Eagles were able to cash in and receive the 14th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. The Eagles traded up and drafted their franchise quarterback in Carson Wentz, but in the process they lost first round picks. The trade gave the Eagles an incredible return on Bradford giving him a value of what he was originally worth back when Bradford was drafted in the 1st round in 2010. Given that the Eagles would not have had any first round draft pick and would still have had Bradford as their quarterback, fans will be grateful that the Vikings agreed to give them their first round pick as well as get rid of a quarterback who has a large cap hit.

  14. Let’s face it, this season was not ideal for the Eagles. They suffered a losing streak mid-season, they had the toughest schedule in the NFL and many players were injured the entire year. Bold predictions were made at the beginning of the season. Here we will take a look at each prediction and if they were correct or not. The winner of the NFC East will come down to Week 17 against the Cowboys. – INCORRECT Nope. The NFC was in close contention early on in the season but towards the end, the Dallas Cowboys were already on a long enough streak to win the division. There was a slight pause for the title when the New York Giants beat the Cowboys for the second time this season but in the end the Cowboys clinched the division before the final week of the season. Ryan Mathews will be a Top-5 back this season. – INCORRECT Was the potential there? Yes. Mathews has his flashes of being a good back, but his consistency was not enough to make him anywhere close. He finished as the No. 25 running back in the league in rushing with 661 rushing yards. His value mainly came as a goal-line back where he tied for 11th in the league with eight rushing touchdowns. The Eagles defense will be a Top 10 defense in the league. – INCORRECT This one was the closest out of all the predictions. The Eagles made a huge jump in terms of defensive production but it wasn’t quite enough to get to be Top-10. When it comes to statistics, here is what the defense was able to accomplish: 13th in total yards allowed per game (342.8) 12th in points allowed on the season (327) T-5th in fewest defensive penalties (99) 3rd in total scrimmage plays (978) 20th in yards per play allowed (5.6) The Eagles will win 60% of their five hardest games of the season (Weeks 7,8,10,11,12). – INCORRECT Three out of five was all that was needed. THREE. Sadly, this prediction was was so close to becoming correct but ended up being incorrect as the Eagles only won two out of their hardest games. They beat the Vikings and Falcons at home, but lost to the Cowboys, Seahawks and Packers. EXTRA BOLD PREDICTIONS: Malcolm Jenkins will lead the league in interceptions in 2016 – INCORRECT There’s a reason that they are extra bold right? Jenkins did not even have the most interceptions in the league let alone his own team. (Hicks lead the team with 5 interceptions) He came up with two in Week 16 alone against the Giants, but other than that Jenkins was more of a zone coverage player rather than a turnover-creator this season. The Eagles will have the best offensive lineman group in the NFC East – INCORRECT At the beginning of the season, the one competitor that was said that the Eagles would compare against was their division rival Cowboys. The Eagles would have been close to having a Top-5 offensive line group if it weren’t for suspensions and injuries. Rookies were shuffled around mid-season due to absences on the line, which made it hard for them to establish themselves as an elite group. The Cowboys, Raiders, Packers, Titans and Patriots all had some of the best offensive lines the league due to their collective efforts and lack of injury. View full article
  15. Preseason Stats: 4 games played, 1 game started Regular Season Stats: 7 games played, 6 games started, 1 false start penalty, 3 sacks allowed RECAP The Philadelphia Eagles selected rookie offensive lineman Halapulivaati Vaitai or “Big V” in the 5th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Vaitai was the main replacement at the tackle position during teammate Lane Johnson’s suspension. Standing at 6’6”, Vaitai has the perfect size to be a future starting tackle for the Eagles once veteran Jason Peters retires. Like the other rookies from his draft class, Vaitai was thrown under the fire and had to learn quickly how the NFL works. Vaitai’s first game against the Redskins was nothing more than a typical rookie game, but after that he soon started to pick it up and get a feel for the flow of a regular season game. The most important aspect that Vaitai changed as a part of his learning process was his technique. In an interview, Big V said that after getting accustomed to what the NFL was all about he said, “I feel like I can be successful here” and Eagles fans hope he sure can. View full NFL news story

  17. Every week here at Pro Football Spot we revisit what took place during each of the Eagles’ regular season games. The Philadelphia Eagles ended their season strong with a win over division rival Dallas Cowboys 27-13. In what was basically a meaningless game, the Eagles continued to play hard and finished the season on a high note. Notes: Mark Sanchez helped the Eagles out: The Cowboys were not playing their starters the entire game so it was not the same competition. Ex-eagle Mark Sanchez was quarterback for a majority of the game. It was Jordan Hicks who intercepted him twice and on an incredible 3rd down the Eagles defense was able to sack him within their own 5-yard line. Sanchez is by no means the answer in Dallas, but his performance did help the Eagles create turnovers and win the game. Late-season Zach Ertz surge once again: For the second year in a row, tight end Zach Ertz has turned on the jets in the final games of the season. Ertz was hurt for a good portion of the beginning of the season, but later came back and proved to be one of Carson Wentz’s favorite targets. Despite missing games, Ertz ended as the Eagles season leader in receptions, reception yards, touchdowns and targets. Last game carries momentum: Beating a division rival even though playoff sights are nowhere possible still gives a team more hope for the season to come. The NFC East has been the toughest division this year and the Eagles played with the hardest schedule in the NFL. With just a few more pieces on the roster the Eagles can be a playoff contender in the near future. Statistic of the Game: Eagles tight ends accounted for 76% of Carson Wentz’s total passing yards. Player on the Rise: TE Zach Ertz This concludes the Pro Football Spot Philadelphia Eagles regular season recap series. View full NFL news story
  18. Preseason Stats: 2 rushing attempts, 11 rushing yards, 1 reception, 5 receiving yards Regular Season Stats: 77 rushing attempts, 312 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 6 receptions, 55 receiving yards RECAP The Philadelphia Eagles selected rookie running back Wendell Smallwood in the 5th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Countess played in every Eagles game up until the start of Week 15 when he was placed on injured reserve with a Grade 2 MCL tear in his knee. In a weakened Eagles offense, Smallwood did everything that the Eagles could as of him. He was made the starting running back for his last four games that he played and provided great change of pace as a runner already in a committee. Smallwood also proved to be a danger on special teams. In Week 6 against the Washington Redskins, he recorded the first NFL kickoff return touchdown of the season. Teammate Ryan Mathews is questionable to return next year just based on age and cap space, but it looks like Smallwood may not be the answer that the Eagles are looking for. It is probable that the Eagles will draft a running back in 2017 so at this point Smallwood can be labeled as a solid contributor running back who will most likely compete to be the Eagles starter next season.

  19. Eagles Drafted Rookie Recap: Isaac Seumalo

    Preseason Stats: 2 games played, 1 game started Regular Season Stats: 9 games played, 4 games started, 2 false start penalties, 1.5 sacks let up RECAP The Philadelphia Eagles selected rookie offensive lineman Isaac Seumalo in the 3rd round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Seumalo played in over half of the Eagles regular season games due to the many injuries that were sustained on the offensive line. Seumalo was drafted in the earlier rounds purely based on the fact that he was versatile and could play at any position on the offensive line if need be. Plenty of injuries occurred to Eagles offensive lineman which forced the rookie to come in when necessary, giving him a speedy entrance into the NFL. In a press pass interview, Seumalo gave no preference as to which position was his favorite on the offensive line. He simply said, “I just want to play. I want to do what I can to help the team.” The more reps that Seumalo has the more skilled he will become. For now, he looks to be the team’s “filler lineman.”

  21. Eagles Drafted Rookie Recap: Jalen Mills

    Preseason Stats: 6 tackles Regular Season Stats: 61 tackles, 7 passes defended RECAP The Philadelphia Eagles selected cornerback Jalen Mills in the 7th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Mills played in every game of the season and was made a starter for two of them. An Eagles defense that has never been known to have a great secondary had Mills working every snap. Playing every game, Mills acquired knowledge purely based only the quantity of playing time that he was given. As a rookie, Mills showed glimpses of being able to be a starting cornerback for Philadelphia. He was beat several times throughout the season, but also played excellent coverage at other times. With one season under his belt, Mills will progress into an eventual starter and will most likely play as an outside cornerback rather than slot where he played a significant amount. Mills also has the size and structure to pair up against opposing wide receivers. For a seventh round-pick, he has tremendous upside for his value for the 2017 season.

  23. Every week here at Pro Football Spot we revisit what took place during each of the Eagles’ regular season games. The Philadelphia Eagles ended their season strong with a win over division rival Dallas Cowboys 27-13. In what was basically a meaningless game, the Eagles continued to play hard and finished the season on a high note. Notes: Mark Sanchez helped the Eagles out: The Cowboys were not playing their starters the entire game so it was not the same competition. Ex-eagle Mark Sanchez was quarterback for a majority of the game. It was Jordan Hicks who intercepted him twice and on an incredible 3rd down the Eagles defense was able to sack him within their own 5-yard line. Sanchez is by no means the answer in Dallas, but his performance did help the Eagles create turnovers and win the game. Late-season Zach Ertz surge once again: For the second year in a row, tight end Zach Ertz has turned on the jets in the final games of the season. Ertz was hurt for a good portion of the beginning of the season, but later came back and proved to be one of Carson Wentz’s favorite targets. Despite missing games, Ertz ended as the Eagles season leader in receptions, reception yards, touchdowns and targets. Last game carries momentum: Beating a division rival even though playoff sights are nowhere possible still gives a team more hope for the season to come. The NFC East has been the toughest division this year and the Eagles played with the hardest schedule in the NFL. With just a few more pieces on the roster the Eagles can be a playoff contender in the near future. Statistic of the Game: Eagles tight ends accounted for 76% of Carson Wentz’s total passing yards. Player on the Rise: TE Zach Ertz This concludes the Pro Football Spot Philadelphia Eagles regular season recap series.
  24. Eagles Drafted Rookie Recap: Wendell Smallwood

    Preseason Stats: 2 rushing attempts, 11 rushing yards, 1 reception, 5 receiving yards Regular Season Stats: 77 rushing attempts, 312 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 6 receptions, 55 receiving yards RECAP The Philadelphia Eagles selected rookie running back Wendell Smallwood in the 5th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Countess played in every Eagles game up until the start of Week 15 when he was placed on injured reserve with a Grade 2 MCL tear in his knee. In a weakened Eagles offense, Smallwood did everything that the Eagles could as of him. He was made the starting running back for his last four games that he played and provided great change of pace as a runner already in a committee. Smallwood also proved to be a danger on special teams. In Week 6 against the Washington Redskins, he recorded the first NFL kickoff return touchdown of the season. Teammate Ryan Mathews is questionable to return next year just based on age and cap space, but it looks like Smallwood may not be the answer that the Eagles are looking for. It is probable that the Eagles will draft a running back in 2017 so at this point Smallwood can be labeled as a solid contributor running back who will most likely compete to be the Eagles starter next season.
  25. Eagles Drafted Rookie Recap: Blake Countess

    Preseason Stats: 7 tackles, 1 forced fumble Regular Season Stats: 11 tackles, 1 sack RECAP The Philadelphia Eagles selected rookie cornerback Blake Countess in the 6th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Countess played in all four preseason games for the Eagles but was released immediately after. He was then signed onto the Los Angeles Rams practice squad but did not play a regular season game until late November. Looking for depth in the secondary, the Eagles drafted Countess in hopes that he would be a fill-in slot cornerback. At the end of preseason trials, however, the Eagles remained skeptical about his performance. For the Rams, Countess did not start a game until Week 16.
