Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …
Which teams would be interested in trading for Kyler Murray? – PFT
The most obvious candidates would be Deshaun Watson’s three finalists who didn’t get the Browns’ new quarterback: Panthers, Falcons and Saints. This assumes that each of these teams would be fine with a quarterback who is very short, by NFL starting quarterback standards. The Eagles might be interested. In the AFC, the Texans would also potentially explore the possibility. Whoever does this should be prepared to pay Murray what he wants financially and give the Cardinals what they need as compensation. It could be more than some teams would like to invest. [BLG Note: I’d pass on trading for and paying Kyler. I think the Eagles will, too.]
Kyler Murray shouldn’t play for Cardinals without new contract – NFL.com
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is adamant about getting a new contract before entering the field for the 2022 season. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Thursday that Murray is not expected to not play unless he gets a new deal, according to people briefed on the decision. The Cardinals have yet to make a contract offer to Murray, whose agent, Erik Burkhardt, informed the team a few weeks ago that he was withdrawing his offer to open the table, Pelissero added. .
2022 NFL Mock Draft: Eagles move to defense with No. 18 pick – BGN
I know what you must be thinking. Howie Drafts a Cornerback in the First Round? Unlikely. Absurd. Listen to me. We have a clear need at Cornerback and have had it for some time. However, in this simulated draft scenario, we are positioned to add a solid piece to the defense. Booth here is a no-brainer, as is DeVonta Smith. Booth is an elite talent and a piece that will make Cornerback less necessary for a while. Let’s get to the details.
2022 NFL Draft Buzzbook, Rumors and First-Round Chaos Picks: Updates on Travon Walker, Kyle Hamilton, Kaiir Elam, Drake Jackson – ESPN+
Hamilton is harder to anchor because the positional value of the Notre Dame safety and a slower-than-expected 40-yard run time appear to have chilled his stock. I see No. 15 and the Eagles as his floor. He’s in the top five prospects on my roster due to his toughness, physicality and playmaking skills, but not every team will appreciate such a high safety.
6 things to know with the NFL Draft in 2 weeks! – PE.com
6. Sirianni talked to me about what wide receiver Zach Pascal brings to this team and he discussed the “connection” he forged with Pascal when the two were in Indianapolis. “For me, we live our core values and our first core value is connection. It’s not just something I wanted to do as a head coach, it’s something I was striving to do. as a positional coach, that’s something I was striving to do as a coordinator. That’s one of the reasons you become a coach,” Sirianni said. “So hearing about that from a player I’ve had a past relationship with means a lot. I’m super excited that Zach is on this team and we can continue to grow our relationship and he can continue to make plays for our organization.
Report: Dallas Police want to question Cowboys CB Kelvin Joseph over murder last month – Blogging The Boys
Obviously, this is a very serious matter and goes beyond football. Any potential involvement of Joseph warrants a police investigation. The report said Cowboys officials encouraged Joseph to speak with police about what he knows, according to a team source who was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The Morning News also said Cowboys officials did not believe Joseph was the shooter, however, the Cowboys and Joseph’s attorney declined to comment to the newspaper.
Jameson Williams could be the key to unlocking the Commanders attack – Hogs Haven
Williams would pair well alongside McLaurin as a Z receiver or slot where he can more often find free versions. Washington had the 21st-best passing offense due to a combination of below-average quarterback play and receiver production. Commanders can’t rely solely on the recovery of Curtis Samuel and the development of Dyami Brown to revitalize the passing offense. Washington went from Taylor Heinicke to Carson Wentz who not only isn’t afraid to throw deep, but is also accurate. It would go well with Williams where he finds himself on his most dangerous running routes on the pitch. Williams has No. 1 receiver talent and production in his solo season at Alabama. His production and big-play ability would be desperately needed for the anemic Commanders’ offense. [BLG Note: I could totally see Washington landing Williams at No. 11.]
