Date: Team: Pos:

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the Eagles have reached an agreement with QB Nick Foles on a revised contract.

The deal includes a mutual option for 2019, so it's possible Foles could still hit the market as a free agent next offseason. He'll also receive a $2 million signing bonus. The Eagles are sweetening Foles' deal as a way of repaying him for leading the team to its first Super Bowl last year. He'll be back as Carson Wentz's backup in 2018.

Eagles MLB Jordan Hicks said he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from a ruptured Achilles.

Hicks isn't participating in OTAs but seems to be trending in the right direction after sitting out the final 12 games (postseason included) of 2017. "It has been a very good rehab," he said. "Doctors and training staff are pleased with where I'm at, just progressing every day, constantly trying to get stronger, trying to get my explosion back." Hicks has been effective when healthy, though injuries have limited him to just 31 games since arriving as a third-round pick in 2015.

Carson Wentz (ACL) has advanced to running.

Wentz believes he's still on track for Week 1, though it doesn't sound like he expects to play in the preseason. The 25-year-old also said he doesn't plan on changing his aggressive playing style despite tearing his ACL late last season. Only Seattle's Russell Wilson threw for more touchdown passes than Wentz in 2017.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson wants Carson Wentz to do a better job protecting himself.

Wentz said after tearing his ACL that he has no plans to change his aggressive style of play but Pederson is hoping he'll reconsider. "Longevity is everything in this business," said Pederson. "Learn from Tom Brady, who got hurt early in his career. And learn from guys that have done that and yet still went on to have great careers and long careers." Wentz is an excellent scrambler and can use this trait to his advantage, but he needs to pick his spots more carefully in order to stay healthy.

Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) remains in a sling but hopes to be ready for the preseason.

He's six weeks removed from surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder and has already been ruled out for OTAs. Jeffery admits he hasn't done much since the surgery but as of now, there's no concern about his status for Week 1. The South Carolina alum agreed to a four-year extension in December, keeping him in Philadelphia through his age-31 season.
Apr 6 - 3:49 PM

Eagles signed TE Richard Rodgers to a one-year contract.

Rodgers had some early success in Green Bay but has been buried on the depth chart the last two seasons. He'll replace Trey Burton as a receiving complement to Zach Ertz in sub-packages. Rodgers has below-average blocking for a No. 2 tight end, but he gives the Eagles another red-zone option.
Apr 4 - 5:17 PM

Eagles signed LB Paul Worrilow, formerly of the Lions, to a one-year contract.

Worrilow had a relatively successful one-year stop in Detroit, recording 30 tackles across 274 snaps as a rotational linebacker. He should serve as depth with the Eagles.
Apr 3 - 11:08 AM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson mentioned Jalen Mills as a candidate to replace Patrick Robinson at slot cornerback.

Robinson left this offseason to sign a four-year deal with New Orleans. Mills made strides last year after earning PFF's worst cornerback grade as a rookie in 2016. "He’s versatile enough to know that we can be able to move him around a little bit," said Pederson. "He’s been a real, real, big bright big spot for us these first two years." If the Eagles would rather Mills stay outside, it's possible the team could pursue a slot corner early in next month's draft.
Apr 1 - 8:34 AM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson believes it's "safe to say" the team is keeping Nick Foles for 2018.

With Carson Wentz rehabbing a torn ACL, the Eagles set a high price for Foles. It appears no one came close to matching it. In some ways it's a waste — Foles will never have more trade value — but it ultimately makes sense. Teams are not going to overpay for 3-4 starts, while the Eagles have incentive to keep Foles as Wentz insurance.
Mar 27 - 2:39 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said he wants to re-sign Darren Sproles (ACL).

The coach added Sproles has expressed a desire to return as well. Sproles was expected to retire this offseason, but he is now "leaning towards returning" after his season was ended prematurely by a torn ACL. Assuming his health cooperates, the two sides should be able to work out a deal. Sproles will turn 35 in June.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Carson Wentz (ACL) will not participate in the offseason program.

Pederson said he is very encouraged by Wentz's recovery, and MMQB's Peter King reports the Eagles are "confident" he will be ready by Week 1. All of that said, the quarterback still has a long way to go in his rehab. We may not know his availability for Week 1 until late in training camp.
Mar 27 - 9:11 AM

SiriusXM's Adam Caplan reports DE Chris Long told the Eagles he will play in 2018.

Long reportedly considered retirement, but he will be back after the Eagles guaranteed his salary last week. Assuming Michael Bennett is able to play, Long might have to accept a smaller role moving forward.
Mar 26 - 1:00 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said the team hasn't fielded any serious offers for Nick Foles.

"It had to be the right deal for us to do that," said Pederson during an appearance on NFL Network. "But there wasn't anything coming down our way for Nick." ESPN's Chris Mortensen previously reported that the Eagles were seeking greater compensation for Foles than they did for Sam Bradford when he was traded for first and fourth-rounders in 2016. Unless they're a blown away by an offer, it appears the Eagles will stand pat with Foles as the No. 2 to Carson Wentz. The reigning Super Bowl MVP will earn a modest $4 million in 2018.
Mar 25 - 10:02 AM

Eagles DE Michael Bennett has been indicted on a felony charge of injuring a 66-year-old paraplegic woman at Super Bowl 51.

The 66-year-old woman was working at Houston's NRG Stadium trying to control access to the field. A warrant in the state of Texas has been issued for Bennett's arrest. Then a member of the Seahawks, Bennett attended the Super Bowl to watch his brother Martellus. Michael was accused of shoving his way onto the field after the woman told him to use a different entrance. Bennett faces a penalty of up to 10 years in prison in addition to a $10,000 fine.
Mar 23 - 3:02 PM

NFL Network's Steve Wyche reports S Malcolm Jenkins underwent surgery to repair ligaments in his left thumb.

Wyche added that Jenkins described the procedure merely as "offseason maintenance" and does not expect to miss any time leading into the season. Jenkins has recorded at least two interceptions in each of the last five seasons and is considered one of the league's best safeties.
