SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Jeffrey Lurie is "more than excited" about the direction of his Eagles franchise, as the NFL Owners Meetings end and the team prepares for next month's draft, Lurie told reporters Tuesday evening.
THE EAGLES' SIGNINGS of wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith lower the barometric pressure a bit for next month's NFL draft, in which Howie Roseman must begin to build a foundation around quarterback Carson Wentz.
INDIANAPOLIS - Among Eagles fans, Dalvin Cook is one of the most talked-about NFL Scouting Combine prospects. Cook's style - his vision, his quick change of gears, his "rare ability to cut it all the way back across the grain," as described in his NFL.com draft profile - maybe those attributes remind the Eagles' faithful of a running back they used to watch, LeSean McCoy.
