Let’s get to Philadelphia Eagles links…
14 deals to watch out for in the 2022 NFL offseason – PFF
Seattle Seahawks exchange QB Russell Wilson with the Philadelphia Eagles. Terms: The Eagles send 2022 1st, 2023 1st, 2022 3rd… Seahawks dead money: $26M. The Eagles inherited a contract: two years, $51 million. The Eagles are trying to follow the Los Angeles Rams’ precedent here with a similar value to the trade with Russell Wilson, who is the same age as Matthew Stafford and has a contract remaining similar to what Stafford did outside last season. The problem with trying to reconcile the value of Stafford’s trade versus Jared Goff is: How was Goff valued in the deal? There is a possibility that a really successful trade will be: Stafford → Rams for 1st and 3rd … Goof and 1st → Black for salary relief. Mike Renner’s last mock draft directed Wilson to the Eagles, as the Seahawks hit the reset button in the center. Philadelphia inherits a quarterback who averaged more than three wins over a substitution from 2012 to 2020. When counting the Eagles in the first and second innings that the Eagles got from the Indianapolis Colts, they ended up near the goal even in Carson Wentz’s swap for Russell Wilson.
NFL Mock Draft Roundup: The Eagles have many choices with 3 picks from the first round – BGN
Of course, there is absolutely no way to use the Eagles in the first three round picks. right? The Eagles might trade at least one of them to get a veteran quarterback. If the Birds hit that market and had to count on Jalen Hurts as a backup plan, they should find a way to pick a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. Non-negotiable. The Eagles shouldn’t lack motivation to do so… but it remains to be seen if they will find a team willing to rise to the top next year. Having an extra first in 2023 gives the Eagles more flexibility to get out of harm’s way, which they should be prepared to do if it becomes necessary.
Eagles stay or go: quarterback – PhillyVoice
This season, the Eagles will have to try to cap the Hurts. In terms of hopeful results, some of the players that Hurts has been compared to are Lamar Jackson, Dak Prescott, Russell Wilson and Josh Allen. It’s hard to see Hurts evolve into those kinds of midfielders. Like Hurts, Jackson didn’t start his rookie season as a start, but it was the start when he finished. In the second year, Jackson was the best player in the league. Prescott started as a rookie and earned the NFL Rookie of the Year awards. It was good right away. Like Prescott, Wilson started as a rookie, and was immediately good at making the Pro Bowl in each of his first four years in the NFL. Allen took a while to evolve into the quarterback he is today, but he was also an imposing physical beast with a weight of 6’5, 240 pounds and a rocket arm. Hurts does not have Allen’s physical traits. Could Hertz reach the levels of those quarterbacks? Verse. maybe. Is it possible? No, he’s not, given that he’s already behind guys like Prescott and Wilson at this point in his career, and he’d never have the physical attributes of people like Jackson or Allen. These comparisons are simply exaggerated, in my view. There is some risk in stopping the young midfielder’s advances by moving on from him before he hits his ceiling. There is also the risk of staying with a player for too long when their realistic ceiling is not as high as 10-12 players in the middle.
Philadelphia Eagles NFL offseason preview: With so many resources, will they be following the veteran QB player? – ESPN
The big question: Will they pursue the veteran midfielder? Hurts cleared himself well in 2021, and led Philadelphia past the season in his first year as a full-time rookie. He led all of his quarterbacks in rushing yards (784) and touchdown (10) last year while completing 61.3% of his passes and throwing 16 touchdowns to nine interceptions. Rosman said he entered the holiday season with the mindset that the Hurts would be the start of Season 22. We also know the Eagles are aggressive when it comes to promotion to quarterbacks and are armed with 10 picks in the April draft. With well-known linebackers like Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers and Deshaun Watson likely to be available through trade this season, the Eagles could have a unique opportunity to land one of the best players in the game. They’ll have to weigh that against the benefits of rolling with Hurts, who costs just $1.6 million on cap (versus Wilson’s expected $37 million cap fee, for example) and has developed into a captain at 23.
2021 review: The rise and fall of the QB double threat – NBC Sports Edge
An ankle injury – which came in Week 12 against the Giants – ruined what could have been a massive end-of-season streak for the Eagles. The highest-scoring Fantasia quarterback was heading into Week 12, nearly ten points behind Tom Brady, averaging 10.37 rushes and 56.18 rushing yards per game in Philadelphia’s super-heavy attack. From Week 12-18, Hurts averaged 6.25 runs and 41.5 yards per competition. Hurts has only scored nine times in total in the last two games of the regular season. His upward trend has been ruined, and his chance of becoming the best player in Fantasy is no more. He can’t make up for the production rush’s loss in an offense that he rarely exceeded as much as possible. The campaign to win the league was derailed. Also – and one that shouldn’t be forgotten as we prepare for the 2022 season – Hurts were incredibly unlucky with a 3.7 percent drop rate, and 24th place among qualifying QBs. He threw down 4.2 percent of his attempts in four 2020 competitions.
2021 NFL Rookie Score, NFC East: Cowboys strike gold; Giants and Leaders Still Looking for Returns – NFL.com
DeVonta Smith was what Jalen Reagor couldn’t have been in 2020: a rookie receiver who makes the difference. Smith averaged 14.3 yards per reception, flirted 1,000 yards and picked up five touchdowns to start a career full of exciting potential. He’s the gem of this class for Philadelphia and might have beaten Jaylen Waddle for a spot on the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie Team if Philadelphia had a better passing attack.
2022 NFL Scouting Combine Preview: Running Back – PE.com
Kenneth Walker, Michigan State – Walker won the Doak Walker award as the best rushing player in college football this season for the Spartans, and he did so just months after arriving on campus as a Wake Forest transfer. The Novice ran for just under 600 yards in each of his first two college seasons before breaking out with 1,600 yards and 18 touchdowns last fall for the Green and White. By some expectations, Walker has a chance of being the first to come back in April after he was basically a free agent for college this time around a year ago.
The Dallas Cowboys should consider trading for one of these five young players – Blogging The Boys
Eric McCoy has been a freshman for three years since he was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the second round (48th place) in the 2019 NFL Draft. With $76 million over the cap, the Saints can look to trade McCoy To save about $3 million against the salary cap. With Cesar Ruiz more than capable of stepping into the OC, McCoy’s chances of getting a contract extension beyond the 2022 season are likely unlikely. Since he’s the only player on this list to come close to the level of the draft forecast’s expectations, it’s likely that McCoy will cost more introductory capital to the Cowboys to get him through the trade. However, it may be a worthwhile investment given that both Conor Williams and Tyler Biadas were the weakest link in the Cowboys’ offensive line last season. Adding McCoy for at least the 2022 season, and possibly beyond, could solidify the entire unit.
Veteran Mayhew-Rivera Free Agents: Four Possibilities for the First-Ever Free Agent Class for Leaders in 2022 – Hogs Haven
Mo Alie-Cox is a basketball player turned NFL player, which seems to be doing quite well. I have to admit I’m a huge fan of Alie-Cox because he’s the only NFL player my alma mater, VCU, has ever produced. But the fact that Alie-Cox was born and raised in Virginia is part of what makes him such a good fit for leaders. Weighing in at 6’5″ and 267 pounds, he fits the mold of the big, capable narrow end that Washington coaches seem to love.
Haason Reddick, Giants Don’t Look Like Free Agent – Big Blue View
If the Giants find the kind of money their PFF will ask them to allocate to Reddick, it can’t go to the rim cannons. Almost certainly that money should go toward finding offensive line help. On the edge, the Giants squad includes young players Aziz Ogullari, Quincy Roche and Ellerson Smith. They also have the possibility of re-signing Lorenzo Carter, an athlete they can see as someone who might thrive with Martindale, and that will come at a fraction of Riddick’s cost. There’s also The Draft, which is filled with much-appreciated edge defenders. It wouldn’t be surprising if one of the Giants used one of their top five picks, perhaps one of their top 10 picks, to supplement their superset.
As criminal investigation continues, Deshaun Watson fails to delay testifying in civil case – PFT
The schedule also makes it difficult to trade Watson before other teams begin to make decisions on who will be their midfielders for 2022. The best seats could be filled before criminal proceedings are over. There is another important point to bear in mind. Watson doesn’t have to settle all issues at the same time. He can try to settle cases that do not involve criminal complaints, if he wants. However, Buzbee and its clients now have more leverage, with the settlement of these claims becoming a reminder to postpone the questioning under oath until April 1, at the earliest.
