Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …
2022 NFL free-agency buzz for all 32 teams: Key moves, deals that fell through, executive reactions, latest info and what comes next – ESPN+
The Eagles have looked at some high-profile pass-catching options this offseason, including Calvin Ridley of the Falcons and Robert Woods of the Rams via trade. They can always target help — free agent Jarvis Landry would be a great complement to DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins — but signing Zach Pascal to a one-year deal is a good, sneaky move. He had a down year in 2021, hurting his value, but he had back-to-back 600-yard seasons with Indy in 2019 and 2020 with Nick Sirianni as offensive coordinator. Pascal was considered a rising player, but he didn’t merge with Carson Wentz at Indianapolis for some reason. The Eagles have big plans for him as he can play on the outside or in the slot as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

On Thursday afternoon, new Eagles WR Zach Pascal spoke to the Philadelphia media about his signing with the Eagles, his relationship with Nick Sirianni and more.
Are the Eagles stuck with Reagor for another year? – NBCSP
The problem is, if the Eagles release Reagor, he would have $7.84 million in dead money against their 2022 salary cap. Since he has a cap of $3.62 million, he would be a little over $4.22 million more in their cap if they cut it than if they kept it. If they wait until after 2022, the dead money hit would be exactly the same as their 2023 cap, which is ideal. But that’s in a year.
NFC East 2022 Free Agency Ratings: Washington Commanders Edition – Reuters Sports News
On paper, Wentz’s stats in 2021 looked pretty decent, as he was throwing 27 TDs vs. 7 INTs, but the eye test showed he looked a lot like the “2019 version” of himself, with an awful bang at times. “2020 version”. He made the occasional spectacular shot, but the cheering moments were overshadowed by his continued inability to make the lay-up shots. With a 9-6 record heading into their final two games of the 2021 regular season, the Colts were almost on the verge of making the playoffs, needing just one win over the Raiders. Vegas or the Jacksonville Jaguars to get their ticket to the playoffs. Instead, largely due to a pair of poor performances from Wentz, the Colts lost both games and were eliminated. The loss to the Jaguars in Week 18 was particularly devastating, as Wentz completed 17 of 29 passes for 185 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT, although the numbers don’t quite convey how inefficient he was. He also lost a fumble on a vintage “2020 Wentz” piece in which he tried to throw a shovel pass instead of just eating a bag.
NFL trade ranks: Assessing Deshaun Watson, Russell Wilson, Davante Adams, Tyreek Hill relocations – NFL.com
Washington seems desperate. After failing to make a successful trade for Russell Wilson, COs quickly settled for a quarterback littered with questions. Washington also agreed to pay Wentz’s absurd $28 million price tag for 2022, which forced the team to turn around and unleash a herd of veterans. I just don’t see the whole Wentz experience as an upgrade over the much cheaper Taylor Heinicke.
Free agent: Commanders continue to re-sign their own with swing tackle Cornelius Lucas joining the team on a 2-year deal – Hogs Haven
While I’m not saying that’s not a real number, I guess it’s not really a $4.1 million APY deal; rather, I suspect he includes bonuses for instant starts and/or countouts that mean Lucas can earn more if he plays more. Lucas’ last contract with the team was a 2-year deal worth a total of $3.7 million. Its cap reached in 2021 was $2 million. I find it hard to believe the team has more than doubled his salary when he will have to replace starting left tackle Charles Leno and suspected starting right tackle 2nd yearr Sam Cosmi.
Dallas Cowboys Could End 2022 Free Agency Already – Blogging The Boys
However, looking at both the team’s history and the progress of free agency so far, there’s no indication that Dallas wants to do more than it can with the cap space available. They’re definitely not going to go after a free agent who will need to outbid another team. While something could strike at any moment, we could see the staff more or less sitting on their hands a bit before signing the final players to set things up for the draft. This will allow them to acquire these players at unbeatable prices. They won’t be very good, but Stephen Jones has made it clear that the Cowboys aren’t going to look to free agency for major talent upgrades. It’s just plugging holes. They don’t hesitate at all to part ways with their free agents signed in training camp. It’s sort of a self-fulfilling prophecy. They haven’t invested much in players, so they aren’t sacrificing much by releasing them.
NFL Betting 2022: Survey of the division’s futures landscape after the initial wave of free agency – PFF
The Cowboys were closer to -160 the last time we did this, but the markets have deteriorated since they got rid of Amari Cooper, La’El Collins and others. Interestingly, the Giants’ chances of securing a division title have increased with their division counterparts. At 9-1 they were probably value, because I think 13-2 would be fairer.
Where are they now? S Sean Considine – PE.com
Sean Considine was not going to be allowed to escape in the 2005 NFL Draft. The Eagles wanted him and got him. “I was just really happy and relieved to get drafted. Even though I wanted to play in the NFL, I never really knew if that would be a realistic goal for myself,” Considine said. ‘ll never forget the morning that (Philadelphia head coach at the time) Andy Reid called me, they had the first pick in the fourth round, which they traded to get, and Andy called me about five minutes before their choice was made and kept me on the phone in case something crazy happened with the trade. My parents, family and friends who were at home are all thrilled. And having the chance to go and play for a legendary franchise like the Philadelphia Eagles and a great coaching staff like the one that was there was a great opportunity A walk-on to the University of Iowa that became an honorable mention All -Big Ten free safety as well as an Academic All-American as a senior, Considine had the o opportunity to learn even more as a recruit.
Jaguars breaking WR market have profound effect on NFL – SB Nation
First it was Davante Adams, then Tyreek Hill. In 2021, they were second and third respectively in the NFL in receptions, both vital to the offense of two of the NFL’s top teams. Now they’re gone – and the Jacksonville Jaguars played a huge role. On Wednesday, the Chiefs announced they were trading Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins in exchange for five picks, including Miami’s 2022 first-round pick. This came a week after the Packers traded Davante Adams to the Raiders for a another set of choices. Adams signed a five-year, $141.5 million contract. Hill got his money, too, receiving a record four-year, $120 million deal that made him the highest-paid wide receiver in NFL history. Both have the Jaguars to thank.
