The 2012 defensive tackle group is no more.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced Monday that they have released DTs Cullen Jenkins and Mike Paterson. Jenkins, signed by the team in the 2011 frenzy, was forced to restructured his deal last offseason.“I had a chance to speak with Cullen today and let him know of our decision,” noted Howie Roseman, the Eagles’ young GM.

“It’s one of the most difficult parts of the job. He has been a very productive player in this league for a long time but we felt it in our team’s best interests that we go in a different directionn. By releasing him at this point, it gives he and his agent more time to sign on with another team. We wish Cullen and his family all the best as he continues his NFL career.”

Over two seasons with the Eagles, Jenkins started every game. He accumulated 9.5 quarterback sacks, 54 total tackles, and two fumble recoveries. At 6-2, 305 lbs, Jenkins aged to 32 last month. Reportedly, he was owed around $.5 million in 2013.

Patterson had stood as the longest-tenured payer on the team. He was selected in the first round of the 2005 draft out of USC. In eight seasons, Patterson earned USA Today All-Joe Team honors twice in his time as an Eagle.

Roseman explained, “Mike Patterson is one of the toughest players I have ever been around in the National Football League. He has overcome many obstacles throughout his career and I have the upmost respect for him because of it. Coach Kelly and I each had a great conversations today with him. He is a class act. He gave this organization eight great seasons of hard work and dedication and we wish him all the best as he continues his career in this league.”

After the release, only two players standing from a failed 2011 free agency heist. Evan Mathis and Nnamdi Asomugha remain, although Asomugha’s status is up in the air. The Eagles are nearly through their early-spring cleaning. Come September, speculators will see how thorough a job they have done.

Like many analysts, Roseman feels the defensive tackle position boasts promise for the future: “For us, up front, obviously you talk about guys like Fletcher Cox, young guys like Cedric Thornton. Guys who worked really hard and have a chance to be really good players.”

The Eagles will need every ounce of talent available to operate with the new 3-4 scheme. Only time will tell if Thornton and Cox can fuel an ignition of defensive tackle dominance.

Philadelphia Eagles ($34.2M): Their financial reserves will grow if expensive CB Nnamdi Asomugha is set free. The entire defense may need an overhaul — the secondary underperformed, and the front seven is converting to a 3-4 alignment that isn't ideal for many incumbents. New coach Chip Kelly may want to stockpile some of his funds until he can better assess what his high-tech offense requires at the NFL level.

Philadelphia NEWS:

Eagles reach deals with 5 free agents on first day

Five new Eagles joined the roster, though they weren't the splashy, top-of-the-market guys some fans always seem to want, in the face of solid evidence that trying to build a winner that way doesn't work.

The signings reflected what general manager Howie Roseman and new coach Chip Kelly said in the weeks leading up to the opening of the market: The Eagles need players, as they transition from the Andy Reid era to new systems. It's unlikely they are done with free agency - 49ers defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois is visiting today, a league source confirmed, and there undoubtedly are other irons in the fire.

But the Eagles are no longer trying to get rich quick, as they did when they dominated free agency in those frantic days following the lockout in 2011. It somehow seemed appropriate that the walking symbol of all those dashed hopes, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, finally got his long-anticipated release on the day the team started charting its new course.

This time, the Eagles are looking in free agency for role players and youngish guys with upside, not for building blocks. Their woeful 2012 special teams seem to be an early focus.

Safety Patrick Chung, formerly of New England, who signed for 3 years, might be the only signee so far who figures to be an every-down starter (though he is a strong special-teams player, as well). Cornerback Bradley Fletcher (2-year contract) started 26 games for the Rams after arriving as a third-round draftee from Iowa in 2009, four of them last season. He tore his right ACL and LCL his rookie year and was the Rams' Ed Block Courage Award winner in 2010, before tearing the right ACL again in 2011. The Eagles see Fletcher (6-foot, 200) at least competing for a starting job. Ditto nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga (3-year deal), who turns 32 in September, and started nine games for the 49ers last season. Jason Phillips (2-year contract), 27, a former Raven and Panther, figures to play on special teams and as a linebacking reserve. He is 6-1, 240.
The most interesting signee of the bunch might be former Texans fullback/tight end James Casey (3-year contract), who turns 29 in September. Casey is an ex-minor league baseball player who got a late college football start, as a Rice freshman in 2007. He left a year later for the draft, and the Texans took him in the fifth round. He caught a career-high 34 passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns last season....

Philadelphia NEWS:

Eagles add another CB, safety

Just as the Eagles prepared to introduce Patrick Chung and Bradley Fletcher to reporters Thursday, the team announced the signings of another corner and safety who might make this quartet the new starting secondary.



Former Ravens corner Cary Williams signed a three-year deal, and ex-Giants safety Kenny Phillips, a star who has struggled with injuries, signed a one-year contract.

A source involved in the talks said Williams will make $17 million over three years, which tells us the Eagles see Williams and Fletcher as their starting corners this season.

More details later.

Philadelphia NEWS:

Philadelphia Eagles trade for Buccaneers WR Arrelious Benn

The Eagles added depth to their wide receiving corps on Friday by acquiring former second-round pick Arrelious Benn from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Benn, a 2010 second-round pick, comes to Philadelphia along with a 2013 seventh-round pick in exchange for the Eagles’ sixth-round pick and a conditional 2014 pick. That means the Eagles got Benn, 24, by moving down a few picks on the third day of the draft.

Benn’s been inconsistent in his three seasons with Tampa Bay, which is why he was on the trading block. He’s also battled knee injuries, including one that ended his 2012 campaign.

In three seasons, Benn has totaled 59 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns. He adds experience as a kick returner, too.

At 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, Benn is a big-bodied receiver. He joins DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant, Riley Cooper, and Damaris Johnson as the Eagles’ top wide receivers. The Eagles added tight end/fullback James Casey this week, who will also be used in the passing game.

Philadelphia Eagles Make Strong Move by Signing Former Houston Texans Linebacker Connor Barwin

Expect Barwin to Have an Immediate Impact on Defense by Adding More Quarterback Pressure and Shoring Up the Middle of the Field

Ask any Philadelphia Eagles fan how good the team's linebackers were prior to last year's acquisition of DeMeco Ryans from the Houston Texans, and you just might hear some words that aren't fit for print.
However, the Birds finally took a major step in the right direction by signing Ryans, a two-time Pro Bowl linebacker with the Texans who went on to lead the Eagles with a team-high 148 tackles in 2012.
Now the Birds have further bolstered their linebacker corps by dipping another toe into the Texans' talent pool. On March 14 they signed free agent Connor Barwin to a six-year contract worth up to $40 million with incentives.
The outside linebacker was the eighth player the Eagles signed over the first two days of free agency, but unlike some of those whose roles with the team are still to be determined, Barwin is going to be an immediate difference-maker on defense.
"This is a guy who plays with his hair on fire," Eagles GM Howie Roseman told the Philadelphia Daily News. "He has the characteristics we look for in a defensive player."
Compared to Ryans at 6'1" and 247 pounds, Barwin is an absolute beast who stands 6'4" and weighs 268 pounds. If that sounds like defensive end size, that's because Barwin used to play DE with the Texans. However, the former 2009 second-round draft pick truly came into his own when Houston switched to a 3-4 defense in 2011 - the very same change that sent Ryans to the Eagles.
While it remains to be seen how Ryans will fit into the Eagles new defensive scheme, Barwin should feel right at home. He is a talented pass rusher who has accumulated 19 sacks over four seasons in the NFL, although one of those seasons (2010) Barwin missed 15 games with a broken ankle. But he came back with a vengeance in 2011, notching 11.5 sacks, before dropping off to only three sacks in 2012.
Roseman told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he attributed the drop-off to how Barwin was being used.
"He was more on the open side two years ago," Roseman said. "He was more in position to set the edge and cover the tight end this year. We watched him two years ago on the open side, and then even this year when they played the Lions when he was doing it more. . . . We think we know what we're getting here in a high-motor guy."
Barwin also has plenty of experience dropping back into coverage, where his size and strength match up favorably against tight ends.
But the true beauty of the Barwin acquisition is that the Eagles are only on the hook for $8 million in guaranteed money, so in the off chance that Barwin doesn't pan out as expected, it won't break the bank. That seems unlikely to happen, however, as I expect Barwin to thrive under head coach Chip Kelly and defensive coordinator Billy Davis.
With Barwin and Ryans roaming the middle, pressuring quarterbacks and shoring up the run defense, the Eagles now have a formidable set of linebackers capable of striking fear in the hearts of opponents.

After analyzing the draft needs of all 32 teams, PFT will review how well each team addressed those needs. Up next: The Philadelphia Eagles.

What they needed: Offensive tackle, quarterback, outside linebacker, cornerback, wide receiver.

Who they got:
Round 1: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma.
Round 2: Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford.
Round 3: Bennie Logan, DT, LSU.
Round 4: Matt Barkley, QB, Southern California.
Round 5: Earl Wolff, S, North Carolina State.
Round 7: Joe Kruger, DE, Utah.
Round 7: Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State.
Round 7: David King, DE, Oklahoma.

Where they hit: The Eagles simply had too big of a need at offensive tackle to pass on Johnson, who has exceptional athleticism for the position. If nothing else, the value of the position Johnson plays made him worth the No. 4 overall pick.

The Eagles made another logical decision in trading up for Barkley. If Barkley pans out, he will be well worth the pick. If he doesn’t, the Eagles surrendered just a seventh-round choice to move up to take the former Southern Cal star. What’s the risk?

Where they missed: The Eagles didn’t add an outside linebacker in the draft. Instead, they added more players along the defensive line (three) than at any position group. All things considered, this seems a reasonable move. The Eagles should be able to get enough out of Connor Barwin, Trent Cole, Brandon Graham and Phillip Hunt at outside linebacker in 2013. Barwin has plenty of experience in a 3-4, while Cole has long been a tough, productive player.

Impact rookies: Johnson could begin at right tackle and eventually replace Jason Peters on the left side. Ertz seems a good bet to contribute in 2013, too, as does Logan, who bolsters the depth at nose tackle. The wild card is Barkley, whose chances of playing early would be enhanced if Philadelphia moves Nick Foles.

Long-term prospects: This was a good foundation draft class for the Eagles, one very clearly marked by Kelly’s vision for his new team. Johnson has considerable upside and could be a long-time starter if he continues to develop. Now, let’s see who emerges at quarterback in Kelly’s system. Does Michael Vick recapture his best form, or will Barkley or Foles challenge for time right off the bat?

Draft Class: How It Fits In

Posted May 4, 2013

Jobs are won on the practice field and the depth chart is, as head coach Chip Kelly suggests at this point, more of a seating chart. Nevertheless, projecting the draft class is a worthy conversation ...

How much impact the Eagles will receive from their draft class remains to be seen, of course. When the rookies gather at the NovaCare Complex next weekend for their post-draft camp, draft positions will be dismissed and every player will have to prove himself to the coaching staff.

The Eagles drafted eight players and feel they came away with some help for the roster. Just how they project for 2013 is the discussion here ...

OT LANE JOHNSON, ROUND 1

He's long and athletic and has experience in the fast-paced offense Chip Kelly wants to employ here. Lane Johnson has a long way to go before he reaches his full ability on the football field so it's going to be fun to watch him learn from coach Jeff Stoutland and this group of veteran linemen already on the roster.

Lane Johnson

Does Johnson walk in as an immediiate starter? Nobody does that, but the Eagles are certainly going to give him plenty of reps, likely at right tackle, and see how he assimilates into the system.

The Eagles figure to have a lot of competition up front. They have a lot of veterans with starting experience and they have some young depth. Stoutland has a lot of pieces with which to work, and Johnson is a large piece of the puzzle both for now and for the future.

It may take some time, however, for Johnson to get up to speed here. Then again, who knows? He has come a long way in a short period of time in his football career and with his work ethic, intelligence and athletic ability, there is no telling how quickly Johnson will reach his zenith.

TE ZACH ERTZ, ROUND 2

The selection of Zach Ertz provides the offense with another playmaking option and gives the Eagles outstanding depth at the tight end position. He was able to create plenty of favorable matchups at Stanford and was simply too fast for linebackers to cover and too big for safeties to stick.

So, Ertz is now a weapon for Kelly and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Adding Ertz to a group that includes Brent Celek, James Casey and Clay Harbor gives the Eagles a lot of versatility and flexibility. Kelly says he will employ three tight ends on the field at times, something we haven't seen around here.

The new age of three-tight end sets in the NFL arrives in Philadelphia, then. And the Eagles are counting on Ertz to be a viable option as a receiver, whether he lines up tight in the formation or displaces. They want to use his athletic ability down the field.

BENNIE LOGAN, DT, ROUND 3

A strong, versatile defensive lineman at LSU, Bennie Logan comes with the advanced billing of a player who has quickness and tenacity, along with the skills to be stout against the running game.

Whether the Eagles are playing a 4-3 or a 3-4, Logan will have a chance to earn some reps as a tackle in a 4-3 and an end in a 3-4. The Eagles want depth and numbers along the defensive line. They have Cedric Thornton, Vinny Curry, Logan and seventh-round picks Joe Kruger and David King along with Fletcher Cox projected to compete as that hybrid tackle.

Logan is a high-intensity defensive player who knows how to win and who understands the mentality of a defense playing dominating football.

QB MATT BARKLEY, ROUND 4

Moving to the top of the fourth round to select Matt Barkley was the headline of the third day of the draft, and now the story is how he will factor into the quarterback picture here. Any analysis of Barkley from his highly successful days at USC can be discarded, for the only analysis that matters is how he learns this offense and plays on the field.

Barkley will get a lot of reps. All five of the quarterbacks will the way Kelly runs his go, go, go practices. The Eagles want to see him command the offense and read the defenses and make good decisions and throw the football with accuracy and confidence.

Kelly has promised a wide-open competition throughout the roster, so why not at quarterback? Saying Barkley will figure here immediately as a starter or otherwise is foolish. He's here to learn, to make progress and to prove that he is good enough to play at a high level in this offense. Michael Vick and Nick Foles have had a month's head start in the scheme and they've both won games in the NFL.

Barkely, no matter how much hype he's received, is a rookie who has a lot to learn.

S EARL WOLFF, ROUND 5

It's a crowded field at safety, all of a sudden. The Eagles signed Patrick Chung and Kenny Phillips in free agency and retained Colt Anderson just prior to the start of free agency. Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman are the incumbent starters.

Earl Wolff had a fine career at North Carolina State and many draft analysts expect him to challenge for playing time immediately. The demands of the safety position in the NFL are numerous, so Wolff has to prove he can cover in space, support the run at the line of scrimmage and tackle consistently.

How many safeties will the Eagles keep? They've kept four, at times five, in the past. The past means nothing, for sure, in this new age of Eagles football.

DE JOE KRUGER, ROUND 7

Rich in bloodlines, Joe Kruger knows the NFL game. His brother is Paul Kruger, who won a Super Bowl last year in Baltimore and who now plays in Cleveland. Brother Dave signed with the Browns after the draft and father Paul played at Oregon State.

Kruger is only 20 years old and at 6 feet 6 and 289 pounds has some pounds to add to his body. The Eagles think he has a lot to develop, either as a defensive end or a defensive tackle who can rush the quarterback and play with high intensity. Clearly, with the additions of Logan, Kruger and King in the draft, the Eagles are looking for some youngsters to emerge to provide long-term help for the defense.

CB JORDAN POYER, ROUND 7

How did an All-America cornerback last until the seventh round? That does not matter now as Poyer is in the NFL and will have an opportunity to compete for a spot at a position which has undergone quite a bit of change this offseason.

Poyer is a ballhawk, notching 13 career interceptions (seven in 2012, which was tied for second-best in the country) at Oregon State. Certainly, Chip Kelly is familiar with Poyer having gameplanned against him in the Civil War rivalry.

Poyer is a good athlete who possesses a nice frame at 6-feet, 191 pounds. He is scheme flexible in that he's played in both man and zone defenses during his time in Corvallis, Ore. He is an aggressive, willing tackler. In addition, he was an accomplished return specialist at Oregon State as he finished fourth in school history in punt return average (14.1 yards per return).

DE DAVID KING, ROUND 7

The Eagles ended their draft by picking King from Oklahoma and, again, he is part of a crowded and talented group along the defensive line. The Eagles want flexibility there and they want energy and King has all of the above.

But there are no givens here. Not with some young talent already on the roster and with three draft picks added to the defensive line. Expect some great competition as the coaching staff rebuilds a front seven very much in need of some punch.

Owner: Jeffrey Lurie, 20th year
General Manager: Howie Roseman, 4th year
Head Coach: Chip Kelly, 1st year
Other front-office notables: Don Smolenski, President; Tom Gamble, Vice President of Player Personnel; Anthony Patch, Director of College Scouting.
Breer: Who is Chip Kelly?
Chip Kelly's NFL adaptation is a topic of great intrigue. Albert Breer talks with close associates of Philly's new coach. More ...

Who's really in charge? There were few coaches who had the power of Andy Reid in Philadelphia, so the first few post-Reid months have been transitional for the organization. As it stands now, three men -- president Don Smolenski, GM Howie Roseman and head coach Chip Kelly -- report directly to owner Jeffrey Lurie, with Roseman and Kelly responsible for the football side.

The Eagles have been very secretive when it comes to their structure beyond that. Roseman has taken on many of Reid's old responsibilities, in running free agency and the draft, but it's clear that Kelly has a strong voice. In fact, two sources say Kelly has final say on the 53-man roster. Also, Kelly's staff delivered very detailed presentations to the scouting side on the measureables and traits that Kelly will look for at every position. When former president Joe Banner left in 2012, contracts and the cap fell to Roseman, who has concentrated on this area over the course of his 14 total years with the club.

Roseman was also once the top operative for his predecessor, Tom Heckert (now with the Denver Broncos), a role that current Indianapolis Colts GM Ryan Grigson played for Roseman two years ago. Roseman successfully lured Tom Gamble away from the San Francisco 49ers to fill Grigson's old shoes and become VP of player personnel in February. College director Anthony Patch has gained influence in scouting, too, and Roseman has surrounded himself with experienced hands in ex-GMs Rick Mueller and Tom Donahoe.

Lurie will sit in on meetings at times and wants to know what's happening, but the owner has always allowed his coaches and football executives to handle that side of the Eagles' operation.

An outside perspective from an NFC executive: "It's clear that they've hit the reset button overall, and since Howie's relationship with Chip was so key to them getting him, they should be on the same page. They're both aggressive and into the nuances. Howie's smart. He gets it. Sometimes, he gets a bad rap, but he understands the league, and you can see it with Gamble -- hiring him was smart. ... It's also interesting because everyone considers Chip an innovator, but what he ran in college, no one expects him to do that in the NFL. ... It's the quickness, the practices, the funny billboards, all that stuff, how he took that program (Oregon) and made it so popular. He's extremely innovative. You wanna see how it'll look. Some of it will translate. Some of it won't. Everyone's curious."

Home / Eagles / The Eagles Saga Continues
The Eagles Saga Continues
By Stoop Sports Updated: July 15, 2013 071113nickfolesmichaelvickap
If Michael Vick doesn’t show up in training camp, he could be looking for a job. Fortunately for him, there could be teams interested in his services. By Mike Rempter.
Mike Vick is fully engaged in a quarterback competition in Philadelphia

When Chip Kelly was hired to take over Andy Reid’s head coaching position for the Eagles, eyes immediately turned to the starting quarterback job that he would have to decide upon. Coming from a high-powered Oregon offense, many believed Kelly would name shifty veteran Mike Vick the starter. However, with training camp in the near future, rumors have begun to swirl regarding Vick’s future- one potentially away from the Eagles.
Should Vick stay with the Eagles, his future could be reminiscent of his past. With a new head coach, one that likes to move his offense quickly and isn’t scared to run the ball, he could flourish in his old ways. The Eagles still have the weapons to be successful with LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin highlighting the quarterback’s supporting cast, and their offensive line is healthier than last year as well. Should Vick outplay sophomore Nick Foles and rookie Matt Barkley in camp to regain his starting spot, he will once again be in a position to put up monstrous stats and potentially lead the Eagles back to the playoffs.
On the other hand, training camp failure for Vick could lead to a preseason cut from the team and without a job. Should that happen, there are a couple of situations that make sense for him.
The Buffalo Bills signed Kevin Kolb in the off-season and reached on EJ Manuel in the draft. While the competition between the two is far from decided, bringing in Vick could be beneficial to a Bills squad that hasn’t been able to put things together in recent years. The best-case scenario in Buffalo for Vick would be a starting quarterback job, as Kolb has been lackluster and Manuel lacks experience. If the Bills stay true to Kolb, Vick could, at the very least, mentor Manuel, a mobile quarterback with raw talent that could learn from a former star. Whether Vick would be up for a small role as a mentor is far from a sure thing.
Similarly to the Bills, the Oakland Raiders signed a quarterback this offseason who is now slated to be their starter in Matt Flynn. However, Flynn lacks experience after being beat out by Russell Wilson in Seattle last year despite signing a large contract in the offseason. The Raiders have nothing to lose with a little quarterback competition, as they still appear to be years from the playoffs. Vick could have some room to run alongside a healthy Darren McFadden.
The Jaguars appear to be the team most in need of a quarterback, with Blaine Gabbert still locked in to the starting position despite two weak seasons to start his career. While Vick would certainly improve the Jags’ offense, the team may not want to risk their chance at the first overall pick in next year’s strong draft class for a 33-year-old quarterback with injury concerns.
Of course, there’s always the Jets. Vick has had his fair share of controversial moments and would be a third uncertain option at the most controversial, uncertain quarterback spot in football over the last few seasons.
