Jaworski: Eagles should pursue Mario Williams

Tuesday, March 13, 2012, 5:20 PM
Peyton Manning won't be an Eagle, but the second biggest prize in the free agency Crackerjack box sure would look good in midnight green. And given Andy Reid's penchant for defensive lineman, ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski would love to see the Birds make a run at d-end Mario Williams – even if Jaws... Read more

Report: Eagles working out linebacker Leber

Tuesday, March 13, 2012, 2:31 PM
The Eagles are working out free-agent linebacker Ben Leber, according to a report from Howard Balzer, of 101Sports in St. Louis. Leber (6-2, 244) spent last season with the Rams, appearing in seven games with three starts before being cut in December. Leber, a 34-year-old in his 11th NFL season,... Read more

Toddfather Extended: Solid Move

Tuesday, March 13, 2012, 12:28 PM
Because the Eagles' 2011 season was such an excruciating disappointment, the rare really positive developments probably didn't get enough attention. One of the big pluses that emerged was the play of longtime left guard Todd Herremans, after Herremans made an emergency move to right tackle in training... Read more

Analyst: Tulloch should stay with Lions

Monday, March 12, 2012, 2:23 PM
The fans' desire for the Eagles to pursue a linebacker in free agency might not match what the team's plans are, but among the potential targets could be Stephen Tulloch, of the Detroit Lions. Tulloch led the Lions in tackles last year with 111, playing under a 1-year, $3.25 million deal. A raise... Read more

The Eagles' DeSean Jackson will make $9.515 million if he signs the franchise tag the team placed on him, according to reports.

Redskins Go For It with RG III

Saturday, March 10, 2012, 12:25 PM
Still reeling more than 12 hours after the Redskins traded three first round picks and a second for the Rams' No. 2 overall selection in the draft -- for all intents and purposes, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. The knee-jerk reaction is to predict this will end badly for Washington, beacuse... Read more

Andy on Bountygate, DJax, Manning & More

Wednesday, March 7, 2012, 3:19 PM
Your Eagletarian got a chance to sit down with Andy Reid today in the Eagles' coach's lair on the second floor of the NovaCare complex. Andy was relaxed and amicable. "Forthcoming" and "insightful" might be pushing it, but, hey, he seemed to be trying. The coach's take on some pertinent matters: *"We're... Read more

Maybe, Eventually, a Real DJax Deal?

Monday, March 5, 2012, 2:17 PM
I still think there's an excellent chance DeSean Jackson plays under the franchise tag this season, because I'm not sure about the Eagles' level of commitment after the way DJax played in 2011. BUT, the Bills' Stevie Johnson agreed to a five-year, $36.25 million deal, $19.5 guaranteed, today, according... Read more

Fate Connects Mannings and Luck

Friday, March 2, 2012, 1:59 PM
ATLANTIC CITY -- They sat on opposite sides of the stage for today's news conference heralding tonight's 75th annual Maxwell Club awards. Archie Manning and Andrew Luck have known each other since Luck was an eighth-grade quarterback at the Manning family quarterback camp, but now, less than two months... Read more

Eagles tag DeSean Jackson

Thursday, March 1, 2012, 12:11 PM
Looks like we spoke too soon with our earlier post about the Eagles and the franchise tag. The team announced today that it has franchised wide receiver DeSean Jackson. He would have become a free agent on March 13, but the expectation was that it was never going to get to that point. “We want... Read more
