Player News - Eagles

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman wrote the Eagles seem "bullish" on sophomore CB Jalen Mills.

Mills was routinely burned as a rookie, but that is not surprising considering he was a seventh-round pick thrust into a big role. He should take a step forward this offseason and could be a useful depth piece in what should be an overhauled cornerback room.

Impending free agent LB Stephen Tulloch is unlikely to re-sign with the Eagles.

Tulloch played just 69 snaps on defense his first year in Philadelphia and offers nothing on special teams. The Eagles should look for cheaper and more versatile depth behind starters Jordan Hicks and Nigel Bradham. The 32-year-old will likely have to settle for one-year offers if he wants to continue playing.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles will retain LT Jason Peters.

The Eagles have some cap concerns and needs at high-priced positions, so there had been some speculation they would move on from the veteran tackle or at the very least ask him to take a pay cut. Neither option appears like it will happen, so Peters will make $10.7 million in salary and bonuses to protect Carson Wentz's blindside in 2017.

Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer guesses the Eagles will not re-sign impending free agent DT Bennie Logan.

The Eagles certainly would like to keep Logan around, but Berman thinks he will get a better deal elsewhere. Philly has a lot of money already invested in the defensive line, and they have much more pressing needs at corner and receiver. Logan has been linked with the Redskins.

Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer said "it’s difficult to see" Connor Barwin back with the Eagles in 2017.

McLane's opinion has been the general consensus since the end of the season. Barwin has said he is willing to take a pay cut, but McLane does not think the Eagles will be willing to match what the pass rusher will fetch on the open market. A poor fit in DC Jim Schwartz’s scheme, Barwin should draw plenty of interest from 3-4 teams if he is made available. NJ Advance Media listed the Colts, Packers, and Ravens as possible suitors.

Mark Eckel of NJ Advanced Media believes DE Connor Barwin will have plenty of suitors if the Eagles cut or trade him.

Following years of success as a 3-4 outside linebacker, Barwin struggled at defensive end in Jim Schwartz's 4-3 scheme. Barwin is due $7.75 million and has already said he'd be willing to take a pay cut to stay in Philly. Eckel named the Colts, Packers and Ravens as teams that could be interested in Barwin.

The Eagles are expected to keep Brent Celek for the 2017 season.

Celek counts $5 million against the salary cap, but the Eagles would save only $1 million by releasing him. Now 32 years old, Celek played just 39 percent of Philly's 2016 offensive snaps, losing playing time to superior receiver Trey Burton behind Zach Ertz. Celek will return as the Eagles' No. 3/blocking tight end.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Daily News reports the Eagles view Isaac Seumalo as the future at center.

McLane adds any decision to cut current center Jason Kelce would have more to do with Seumalo than Kelce's play or cost. Seumalo also could be an option at left guard if the Eagles move on from Allen Barbre. After being moved all around the line as a rookie, the Eagles need to find a permanent home for Seumalo if he is going to develop into the player they obviously believe he can be.

A source told Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski that the Eagles are indeed likely to trade SLB Mychal Kendricks.

Kempski previously strongly speculated Kendricks would be moved, and he now has a source confirming it. Kendricks regressed into a lightly used sub-package linebacker under first-year DC Jim Schwartz, playing fewer snaps than both MLB Jordan Hicks and WLB Nigel Bradham. If the Eagles can't find a taker for the remainder of Kendricks' five-year, $30 million deal, Kempski believes they may designate him a post-June 1 cut, freeing up $5 million in cap room. The Eagles would likely be willing to deal Kendricks for a mid- to late-round pick.
Feb 12 - 7:01 PM

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski expects the Eagles to trade SLB Mychal Kendricks.

Kendricks signed a four-year, $29 million extension in 2015. He was a great fit in the previous 3-4 system, but Kendricks fell out of favor under current DC Jim Schwartz, who coaches a 4-3 front. Kendricks played just 273 snaps in 2016. Shedding Kendricks will likely be one of EVP Howie Roseman's top priorities. The former No. 46 overall pick is due a $4.85 million salary going on age 27.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Eagles want LT Jason Peters to take a pay cut.

The Eagles have touched base with Peters, but it's unclear where he's leaning on the matter. Peters carries a cap number of $11.7 million, and the Eagles want that number to come down as Peters turned 35 in January. Lane Johnson is the left tackle of the future in Philly and signed a mega-extension last offseason, but he was slapped with a 10-game PEDs ban and is on thin ice with the league. Peters has a ton of leverage, while the Eagles have minimal cap room.

NJ Advance Media's Mark Eckel reports the Redskins will target impending free agent NT Bennie Logan if he hits the open market.

The Redskins didn't even have a pure nose tackle this past season, and their run defense suffered greatly because of it. Washington simply rotated linemen across their front, finishing 25th in run-defense DVOA. Logan didn't fit quite as well in DC Jim Schwartz's 4-3 scheme. He's more of a traditional 3-4 nose and would be an excellent fit with the Redskins.
Jan 30 - 11:06 AM

Eagles EVP Howie Roseman said he did not see "any decline in play" from C Jason Kelce.

Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice reports the Eagles will look to move on from Kelce and his $6.2 million cap hit, but Roseman had nothing but praise for his center. "He's going to the Pro Bowl. His peers have had him as a second-team alternate. That shows you the respect he's had in this league," Roseman said. "We're not talking about a guy who's 35 or 36, older than that. You see his ability to play in space, his explosiveness. Ultimate team guy." Roseman could just be talking Kelce up to maintain a trade market, but it does not sound like he will be quick to cut the long-time starter.
Jan 26 - 9:28 AM

Eagles DE Connor Barwin said he'd be open to taking a pay cut to stay in Philadelphia.

Barwin has two years left on his contract and is due a $7.75 million salary with no guaranteed money left on the deal. He'll be entering his age-31 season and didn't perform all that well in his first year in DC Jim Schwartz's 4-3 scheme. Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski expects the Eagles to simply move on in an effort to free up a ton of cap room. Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry are the starting ends in Philadelphia, and Graham just graded out as PFF's top 4-3 end in 2016.

Carson Wentz will train with quarterback guru Adam Dedeaux this offseason.

Dedeaux is a former minor league pitcher who recently took over Tom House's company. House worked with some of the game's top quarterbacks including Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Carson Palmer and Matt Ryan. Wentz's mechanics deteriorated over the course of his rookie season, resulting in an uptick in turnovers. Wentz threw 14 interceptions over the final 13 weeks.
