Lets get to the Philadelphia Eagles links.. Eagles WR Devon Allen runs third-fastest 110M hurdles in history - PFTDevon Allen is trying to make the Eagles as a wide receiver this year, but Sunday brought a reminder that hes a gifted track athlete as well. Allen ran the 110 meter hurdles in 12. 84 seconds during the New York Grand Prix in New York City on Sunday. That was good enough to win the race and it was also the third-fastest time that anyone has ever posted in that event. Aries Merritt set the world record of 12. 80 seconds in 2012. A look at the Eagles players over 30, and their succession plan for each - PhillyVoiceDT Fletcher Cox: The Eagles probably should have moved on fr om Cox already this offseason rather than pay him $14 million. That money could have been better allocated elsewhere. But, for now, the Eagles are loaded at defensive tackle, both in terms of veteran talent, as well as young up-and-comers Cameron Tom Jersey. S Anthony Harris: Once they missed out on Marcus Williams and Justin Reid in free agency, the Eagles brought Harris back to ensure they at least had a starter with whom theyre comfortable, but hes basically year-to-year. Safety is a rare spot on the roster wh ere the Eagles have an immediate glaring concern, much less a long-term one. Hype Not Hope - Iggles BlitzIs this all too much too fast? Should we be nervous? I dont think so. The NFL can be a quick turnaround league. The Eagles were mediocre in 2015 and 2016. Then they became a dominant team in 2017 and ended up winning the Super Bowl. The Eagles hit rock bottom in 2020, for a variety of reasons. It looks like they have bounced back quickly. Last year the Eagles took advantage of a soft schedule. This year they appear to have a legitimately good team. And that has led people to buying in. There are no guarantees that things will work out, but let yourself believe. Enjoy the hype. The team had a good core in place and then had a great offseason. Weve come a long way from last year when hope was the primary currency James Bradberry Jersey. Brian Dawkins on Jalen Hurts, Eagles defense - PE. comThe Pro Football Hall of Fame safety joined NFL Network to talk about quarterback Jalen Hurts development, the pieces added to the Eagles defense, and the launch of the Brian Dawkins Impact Foundation. Rebuilding the Cowboys offense with all NFC East players - Blogging The BoysThe math here checks out in terms of whos seen as the biggest threat to the Cowboys this season by the national media. If the Eagles cant overtake the Cowboys this season, they have the draft capital to continue building a strong contender, making it even more crucial that Dallas capitalizes on any advantage they have on Philadelphia. The Cowboys having the lead at QB here went a long way, and next well look at how Dan Quinns defense going into year two stacks up with the rest of the division as well. Report: Terry McLaurin not expected at mandatory minicamp this week - Hogs HavenNicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post seems to have answered the question that we asked yesterday on Hogs Haven about Terry McLaurin, reporting that he is unlikely to attend the mandatory minicamp that begins on Tuesday. The report says that there has been some progress, but that the two sides remain far apart. NFL minicamp storylines include how QBs Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson, Carson Wentz look with new teams - ESPNQuarterback Carson Wentzs connection with his receivers will be the biggest thing to watch. Wentz clicked with first-round pick Jahan Dotson in early-spring workouts, but hell have to show he can connect with other targets, too, on a consistent basis. Along these lines, receiver Terry McLaurin did not attend the voluntary sessions because he wants a contract extension https://www.eaglesteamfanshoponline.com/Kobe_Smith_Jersey-364. Will he return, and what sort of connection will he establish with Wentz? Do punters matter in todays NFL? - Big Blue ViewThis seems to pass the smell test - a good punter can be an asset, though not nearly as much as a good quarterback is, but a bad punter can have a significant negative impact on a teams chance of winning. Put another way: In todays explosive offense-driven NFL, if a punter is not providing a dramatic change in field position, what is lost by giving your opponents offense another chance to make big plays against you outweighs what little advantage you get by increasing the distance that opponent has to go to score.
