signed ex-Browns/Lions DT Gabe Wright to a 1-yr deal. He was a 4th-rd pick two years ago

Is this because Jernigan got hurt? I heard Barnett and Jernigan were looking pretty good, Long too? I was getting encouraged about DLine this year!

Here's where I am on the Maclin thing --

He's a good player. Not great. His best season by-far was under Chip. His other pluses are:

- still under 30
- still has decent speed
- good guy
- great hands
- versatile
- knows the offense

The problem is timing and the overall strategy for the Birds wrt WR ?

I think the Birds are hoping Alshon becomes the #1 and then resign him.
If Torrie Smith really still can go deep and play and get 17 ypc avg, then he's around a bit longer too.
Maclin would be a nice piece to mix in there - but it's hard to afford once they go in big on Alshon. They need either Agholor - the supposed Maclin clone - or another rookie to matter.
Mac might be open to Philly since he knows the town and Novacare - but he's not dropping from 11mil to 2-3mil. He will want at least TOrrie is getting. As well, Jordan Mathews will be up for signing. Do they want sure-hnaded Maclin with two massive knee surgeries and aids, or a taller younger stronger Mathews or just to the NE thing and bring in the next journeyman who can grab some balls?

If Agholor is getting cut, then Maclin becomes more attractive to me, but they have a #1, Alshon, a 2a and 2b speed and size in Smith and Matthews Where does Maclin fit?

Getting Maclin means to me moving Jordan Mattews for a draft pick and some creative accounting...and then deciding they weren't going to resign Matthews anyway - and don't care if Agholor is anything or not.

I personally think Agholor is a head-case not a skill-set case. Something got in his head and he could be good if he could get past that.

-- Doug says there's no interest in signing Maclin at this time
-- Sidney Jones is out of his walking boot
-- FB by committee, with Burton, Gordon and Allen being the likeliest candidates
-- training camp opens July 24, with first full practice on July 27
-- July 29 and August 6 will be the free practices at the Linc
-- the team will host the Dolphins for joint practices the week leading up to their 3rd preseason game on August 24

I've heard some teams have a BIG BACK

From what the reporters were saying about practice today, Barnett was killing Lane and getting to Wentz rather easily

Also they have said Wentz has looked terrible most of the time, so I am not sure what to take from it. Seems like another bad day for Wentz today.

per the twitterz, Maclin signed with the Ravens but the decision came down to either Ravens or Eagles so we were in on him I guess.

-- Peters says he wants to restructure his contract with more guaranteed money so he's assured of retiring as an Eagle and doesn't have to go through this year-to-year BS

-- Bust II says he skipped voluntary OTAs because they were voluntary, says he expects to be on the team and isn't upset with the additions of Barnett and Long

-- Foles was the only one missing from minicamp today. His wife is due to deliver soon

No. BUT,

Led by Carson Wentz, Eagles players break post practice prayer huddle with "1-2-3, JE-SUS!"
you sure do seem to have a lot of time on your hands to be on this forum? Do you have a job? Are you a shut-in?

hey-ZEUS because he saw a swan by his girlfriend and he's paranoid of getting cuckold by the the Greek god.
