EAGLES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Twitter Tuesday: Could Eagles rookie Nelson Agholor go for 1,000 yards?

Hayes: Chip Kelly sells hope and change better than Barack Obama

The big question floating around Philadelphia after the 2015 NFL draft: 'Are the Eagles better?' After all of Chip Kelly's out of the box moves including getting rid of two All-Pro's in running back LeSean Mcoy and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, may have him closer to the type of offense he prefers, but it remains to be seen if those moves made the team better. According to Marcus...

Chip Kelly: Tim Tebow no 'camp arm'

Soon after the Philadelphia Eagles signed journeyman QB Tim Tebow to a contract, fellow Eagles QB Mark Sanchez let the cat out of the bag that his former Jets teammates was brought in to be just another camp arm while Sam Bradford recovers from ACL surgery.

Chip Kelly: Tim Tebow is here to compete for a job

The Philadelphia Eagles almost literally have the biggest circus in town. It’s actually comparable to the Ringling Brothers with Chip Kelly running the show.

That’s fine and dandy, but one local sporting goods chain based in Philadelphia isn’t buying into...

Kelly and Mathis Situation Gets Ugly

It is no secret that Evan Mathis has been unhappy about his contract.

Eagles sign 15 UDFA, including 4 offensive linemen

The Eagles signed 15 undrafted free agents on Saturday. The biggest group taken was offensive linemen (four).
