Eagles trade offensive lineman Matt Tobin to Seahawks

Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Matt Tobin had something of an uphill climb to just to make the roster this season, and somehow the Eagles were able to trade him along with a seventh-round pick in 2018 to Seattle for the Seahawks' fifth-round pick in 2018.

Eagles-Dolphins 2017 training camp practice notes, Day 20

The Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins had their first day of joint practices on Monday, and it was... eh, alright, I guess. Throughout practice, the Eagles' offense was on one field with the Dolphins' defense, while the Dolphins' offense battled the Eagles' defense on another.

Projecting roles in 2017 for each of the Eagles rookie draft picks

In the 2017 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles had eight draft picks. Over the last month, we've watched them in practice, and in a couple games. By this time in training camp and the preseason, you have a pretty good idea of whether or not a player is going to contribute in his rookie season. Let's take a look at the Eagles 2017 draft picks and how we'd project their roles this season.

Eagles 2017 training camp practice notes, Day 19

Philadelphia Eagles training camp technically ended last Tuesday, but because the Birds have joint practices with the Miami Dolphins on Monday and Tuesday, which are practices the team is required to open to the media, they just let us in on Sunday too. It was a "10/10/10" practice, so there wasn't a ton of action, but here's what we saw.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is behind, mentally

On a 3rd and 12 in the Philadelphia Eagles' second preseason game against the Buffalo Bills, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery ran a wrong route. Instead of running a corner route, he ran an out route. Carson Wentz was looking for Jeffery on the play, but had to go over the middle to Zach Ertz instead, who picked up 11 yards on the play, just short of a first down.

Ronald Darby impressive in Eagles debut (with gifs and stuff)

In his Philadelphia Eagles debut against the Buffalo Bills, his former team, Ronald Darby saw two passes come his way. He almost picked off the first target and returned it for a touchdown. The second time the Bills tested him, Darby made them pay with an interception and a long return.

Derek Barnett will have significant role on Eagles' defense this season

One of the more obvious takeaways from the first two games of the Philadelphia Eagles' preseason is that rookie defensive end Derek Barnett has ability to get to the passer.

Mychal Kendricks helping his chances of getting traded with good preseason

It's no secret that Mychal Kendricks doesn't want to be in Philadelphia as a member of the Eagles, since, you know, he said so himself in an honest moment a few weeks ago during training camp. The Eagles, meanwhile, would be more than happy to grant Kendricks that wish if a half-decent offer came along.
