Coach Doug Pederson said Nelson Agholor could take on a bigger special teams role in 2017.

Agholor has mentioned the possibility of returning kicks. Following the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith to go with slot man Jordan Matthews, Agholor's role on offense has evaporated. He's no higher than the No. 4 wideout at the moment and could even be a trade candidate on draft weekend. Dynasty owners have no choice but to sit tight with Agholor's stock at zero.

Eagles signed CB Patrick Robinson, formerly of the Colts, to a one-year, $1 million contract.

The former Saints first-rounder was released by Indianapolis earlier this month. Robinson was limited to seven games by injury last season, but started six of them. Going on 30, Robinson has probably lost a step, but was effective for the Chargers in 2015. He could man the outside in nickel packages, and is capable of playing the slot himself.

Eagles signed DE Chris Long, formerly of the Patriots, to a two-year contract.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Long will make close to the $2.4 million he earned with the Patriots last season. The Eagles have plenty of talent along the defensive line, but Long is a solid addition both as a situational pass rusher and locker-room asset. 32 today, Long recorded four sacks during his one year in New England.

PFT's Mike Florio reports the Eagles offered the Saints a package of FS Malcolm Jenkins, a third-round pick, and a fourth-round pick in exchange for Brandin Cooks.

The Saints apparently wanted a second-round pick and Jenkins, a price the Eagles obviously balked at since Cooks was later dealt to the Patriots. Jenkins, 29, started his career with the Saints as the No. 14 overall pick in 2009 before signing with the Eagles in 2014. He's become one of the top safeties in the league, grading out well in coverage and providing strong run support. Jenkins is under contract through 2020 after signing a big extension in February 2016.

Eagles restructured Zach Ertz's contract.

$3.225 million of his scheduled base salary was converted into a roster bonus. The move does not cost Ertz anything, but it saves the Eagles $2.58 million against the cap, money they likely used to sign Nick Foles. Ertz finished 2016 on a tear, but he will face more competition for targets in 2017 with Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith in the fold. He might be over-drafted this summer.
Mar 13 - 9:30 AM

Eagles signed Nick Foles, formerly of the Chiefs, to a two-year, $11-million contract.

The deal includes $7 million guaranteed. Foles will be nothing more than a backup in his return to Philadelphia after a two-year hiatus, but this move is interesting because of what it could mean for Chase Daniel. The Eagles were openly trying to trade their (former?) backup before free agency, and bringing in Foles suggests they are close to a deal. Philly could also decide to cut Daniel, but that would net them just $1 million in cap space.
Mar 13 - 8:48 AM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports there's "mutual interest" between the Bucs and free agent Nick Foles.

Foles would be accepting a strict backup role behind Jameis Winston. It's not a great landing spot, but the Bucs need a No. 2 quarterback after losing Mike Glennon. Foles has been linked to the Jets and Eagles. The Chiefs also haven't ruled out bringing him back.
Mar 10 - 7:02 PM

Alshon Jeffery's one-year contract with the Eagles contains $4.5 million in incentives.

Reported as a $14 million pact, the deal is really for $9.5 million with the $4.5 million in incentives, which involve anything from playing time to team wins. It is a shockingly poor deal for a player who was considered the best receiver on the market, although it now appears clear NFL teams did not feel the same way. The good news is Jeffery should be motivated to stay in shape and healthy so he can take another run at free agency next spring.
Mar 10 - 4:59 PM

Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com confirms the Eagles will not release C Jason Kelce.

There was speculation the Eagles might part ways with Kelce after signing Stefen Wisniewski to a three-year deal, but it looks like he's safe for now. He'll continue to start at center with Wisniewski expected to see most of his snaps at left guard. Kelce is under contract through 2020.
Mar 10 - 3:59 PM

Colts released CB Patrick Robinson.

One of ex-GM Ryan Grigson's many free-agent flops, Robinson was unable to stay on the field last season due to groin, knee, and concussion issues. He started just six games. With new GM Chris Ballard in town, it's time to clean house. The move saves $2.5 million. Robinson turns 30 this year, but he had a really good 2015 with the Chargers and can still help a team.
Mar 10 - 12:38 PM

Eagles re-signed G/C Stefen Wisniewski to a three-year contract.

Per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the deal is worth close to $9 million and could reach $15 million if all his incentives are reached. A six-year veteran, Wisniewski has spent most of his career at center but worked exclusively at guard last season, making six starts for the Eagles. Wisniewski should be given an opportunity to compete for the Eagles' left guard opening.
Mar 10 - 10:41 AM

Eagles signed OG Chance Warmack, formerly of the Titans, to a one-year, $1.51 million contract.

The No. 10 overall pick in the 2013 draft, Warmack never panned out in Tennessee. He started 48 games for the Titans, but landed on I.R. with a hand injury last September. Tennessee was never interested in bringing him back. Warmack figures to have a backup role or possibly compete at left guard.
Mar 9 - 4:19 PM

Eagles signed WR Alshon Jeffery, formerly of the Bears, to a one-year, $14 million contract.

Jeffery reportedly turned down a multi-year deal from the Vikings to accept the "prove it" deal from Philly. It is a risk after he missed seven games with injury in 2015 and served a four-game suspension last season, but it also gives him a shot at a massive deal next year if he puts up a big season. It is also a win for the Eagles, who desperately needed a playmaking presence on the outside. Jeffery has put monstrous upside on NFL film, and posted huge numbers in 2013-14. Still only 27, he could easily bounce back to top-18 fantasy status in 2017.
Mar 9 - 4:05 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Vikings are interested in free agent Alshon Jeffery.

They join the Colts and Eagles, in addition to the Bears. It's an admission of worry about Laquon Treadwell's development. Jeffery would join Adam Thielen on the outside in Minnesota, bookending Stefon Diggs.
Mar 9 - 3:37 PM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports free agent Alshon Jeffery is leaning toward signing with the Eagles.

The Eagles badly need Jeffery to pick them, especially after failing to land Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson, Kenny Britt, and Kenny Stills as free agents. Philly needs a No. 1 receiver in the worst way, and getting Jeffery, the top free agent on the market, would be huge for Carson Wentz. Jeffery has also been connected to the Colts, 49ers, and Bears. He should sign Thursday.
