Wholesale Tremon Smith Jersey Eagles Authentic 2021

The Philadelphia Eagles are definitely preaching competition in the secondary after adding another slot cornerback in former Rams defensive back, Nickell Robey-Coleman.

Robey-Coleman will compete in a crowded slot position that includes Avonte Maddox, Cre’Von LeBlanc and Authentic Tremon Smith Jersey.

With Robey-Coleman coming from the west coast, here are three things to know about the Eagles’ newest cornerback.

Robey-Coleman was signed by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2013 after playing collegiately at Southern Cal. A Florida native, Robey-Coleman was a four-star recruit that chose USC over West Virginia, Tennessee, and Clemson, among other schools.

Through 12 weeks of the 2019 season, the Green Bay Packers were headed for historic ineptitude in one specific area. The team had amassed negative-eight yards on punt returns over the first three-quarters of the year, putting them on pace to be the first NFL team to finish with negative yardage in that area in a full season.

Then, an inspired waiver claim by general manager Brian Gutekunst turned the team’s special teams fortunes. The Packers claimed Tyler Ervin off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars, immediately inserting him as their primary return man in place of Tremon Smith. On his first punt return, Ervin pushed the team’s total back into positive yardage, and by the time his first game was complete he had four returns for 51 yards.

All told, Ervin would return 11 punts for 106 yards and six kickoffs for 160 yards in the final four regular season games, then was dangerous enough that teams began kicking away from him in the postseason.

Ervin, who just completed his fourth NFL season, had an expiring contract this March, and has been an unrestricted free agent since the start of the league year last Wednesday. However, the Packers are reportedly bringing him back for 2020. According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the two sides are “expected” to come to an agreement on a one-year contract for the upcoming season.

For a Packers team that floundered in the return game after trading away former draft pick Trevor Davis, this should be a great decision. It will provide some continuity on special teams, while also providing a bit of explosive athletic ability on offense as well.

Late in the season, Matt LaFleur began to dial up some plays for Ervin. His offensive workload peaked in week 17, when he was on the field for 17 offensive snaps. That game saw him receive three pass targets, two on wheel routes downfield that Aaron Rodgers overthrew, and one rushing attempt on an end-around that went for 10 yards. Ervin then added a pair of rushes for 25 yards two weeks later in the Packers’ Divisional Playoff win over the Seattle Seahawks.

With a full offseason, LaFleur and his coaches can surely find a bigger role for Ervin on offense, and he may find himself able to contribute as more of a conventional tailback instead of primarily as a gadget player. But his main calling card will likely remain on special teams, an area that he single-handedly saved from historic futility a few months ago.

UPDATE: Ervin’s deal is reportedly for a total of $1.047 million, with about $137,000 guaranteed as a signing bonus. However, thanks to the veteran exception, Ervin will only count for $887,500 against the salary cap in 2020, according to Tom Silverstein.

Authentic Wholesale Alex Ellis Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys

Starter: Zach Ertz
Backups: Dallas Goedert, Josh Perkins, Authentic Alex Ellis Jersey

Ertz and Goedert were both top 10 fantasy tight ends in 2019, and it’s hard to believe that could be the case in 2020. Ertz has led the team in targets for two straight seasons and should have top 10 upside next season, but Goedert should take a step back with Jackson and Jeffery in better shape.

The Eagles addressed their weaknesses on defense in free agency, but still need more offensive firepower. We break down the potential fantasy football impact of the players on their current roster.

NFL free agency started on March 18th, but technically does not end until the end of the season. However, after a firehose of news the first week, and another run the second week, things quiet down to a trickle. There are still big names out there, but it’s going to take some time to get them signed, sealed and delivered.

With that in mind, it’s time to take a look at where teams stand after the early rush of free agency and what it means for fantasy football. We’re going to take a look at the skill positions, breaking down what the starting lineup and reserves will look like to assess fantasy value heading into August drafts.

Today, we’re taking a look at the Philadelphia Eagles. Philadelphia has focused on fortifying its defense so far this offseason. It lost Malcolm Jenkins but traded for Darius Slay and signed Nickell Robey-Coleman in hopes of keeping the secondary sturdy. The Eagles also added to their fearsome defensive line by signing Javon Hargrave for three years. They returned backup quarterback Nate Sudfeld, but the offense could use a lot more firepower.
Quarterback

Starter: Carson Wentz
Backups: Nate Sudfeld, Kyle Lauletta

Wentz was QB10 in standard and PPR leagues last year, throwing for 4,039 yards and 27 touchdowns without a consistent receiving corps. Getting DeSean Jackson back and adding more depth out wide through the draft should help Wentz perform at the same level or better in 2020. He put together the second complete season of his career and has the potential to crack the top five in passing yards.

Sanders is in for a big year. He was RB15 while finishing outside of the top 20 in carries (179) as a rookie. He has the kind of versatility that makes running backs like Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, Dalvin Cook, and others so dangerous.

He racked up 818 rushing yards and 509 rushing yards with six total touchdowns while splitting work with Jordan Howard, who has since signed with the Miami Dolphins. Philadelphia wants to add more depth to its backfield, but expect Sanders to be the feature back and become a top 10 fantasy running back in 2020.

Wholesale Authentic Marcus Green Eagles Jerseys

The announcement Tuesday that NFL owners voted to add a wild-card team from each conference to the league’s annual title tournament after the 2020 season spurred the release of several lists ranking past would-be No. 7 seeds that might have benefited most: the 2012 Bears and their dominant defense, the 1991 49ers who got Steve Young back late, etc.

By association, Andy Reid, who finally earned his ring with the Chiefs in February, might have had to wait another year.

More directly: The Eagles Authentic Marcus Green Jersey never would have won their Super Bowl. That’s right: Saint Nick never would have come home, and the Philly Special would have moldered in Press Taylor’s three-ring binder.

Why? Because Chip Kelly’s 2014 Eagles, who had made the playoffs in 2013, narrowly missed a return trip. They would have been that year’s No. 7 seed in the NFC and they would have traveled to Green Bay for their playoff game. Yes, they had lost there, 53-20, six weeks before; and yes, they probably would have lost again in the playoffs. But that isn’t the point.

Kelly was fired after going 6-9 in the first 15 games in 2015. He had become a predictable boor on the field and was an unmitigated disaster as the general manager: In the course of his first two years, he engineered the departure of receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, guards Evan Mathis and Todd Herremans, running back LeSean McCoy, and, of course, Nick Foles, and each position got worse.

But, had the Eagles earned that seventh playoff slot in 2014, Kelly would have gone to the playoffs in each of his first two seasons as an NFL head coach. There’s no way Jeffrey Lurie would have fired him. Not in 2015, anyway.

That means the Eagles wouldn’t have hired Doug Pederson to replace him in 2016, which means, even if Kelly had been fired a year later, Pederson wouldn’t have hired Frank Reich as his offensive coordinator. This is relevant because of what Carson Wentz meant to the team in his first two seasons. It was Reich who stumped hardest to draft Wentz over Jared Goff in 2016, and it was Reich’s eye that realized Wentz was ready as a rookie, so the Eagles could trade incumbent starter Sam Bradford on the eve of the 2016 season. It was Reich who guided Wentz to an MVP-caliber season through the first 13 games of the 2017 season, until Wentz got hurt; a 13-game stretch that helped secure the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs.

Wholesale Philadelphia Eagles Kyle Lauletta Jerseys Authentic

Wes is joined by Philadelphia Eagles QB Cheap Kyle Lauletta Jersey about his thoughts on if the coronavirus pandemic and the sports shutdown were to happen when he was in the draft process. Kyle also gives some insight on teams allowing players to use their own doctors as opposed to team doctors, and how he ended up with the Eagles organization.

The Eagles have Cheap Carson Wentz Jersey set as their franchise quarterback, but one of the under-the-radar questions of this offseason is who will serve as his backup in 2020? The Eagles took a big step toward answering that question on Tuesday morning as they agreed to terms with quarterback Nate Sudfeld on a one-year deal. Sudfeld was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday.

“We’re very comfortable with Nate,” Head Coach Doug Pederson said at the NFL Scouting Combine last month. “We’ll see what happens this spring when we get down the road with him, but he’s put himself in position to compete and possibly be the No. 2.”

Sudfeld served as the No. 3 quarterback last season behind Wentz and Josh McCown. Wentz, Sudfeld, and Kyle Lauletta are now under contract for the upcoming season. McCown is recovering from a hamstring injury suffered in the season-ending loss to Seattle. The 40-year-old McCown is set to be a free agent and has not yet made any decisions about his football future.

A former sixth-round selection of Washington in 2016, Sudfeld was claimed off waivers by the Eagles at the start of the 2017 regular season. Sudfeld served as the primary backup in the latter half of the run to the Super Bowl and set what was at the time the record for highest completion percentage (82.6 percent) in an NFL debut in the regular-season finale against Dallas. He threw his first touchdown pass in the 2018 regular-season finale against his former team.

The 6-6, 227-pound Sudfeld was poised to be the primary backup to start the season for the first time in 2019. However, Sudfeld suffered a fractured wrist in the preseason opener, and the Eagles turned to the veteran McCown. Sudfeld returned for Week 3 of the regular season. He was active for five games this season but did not get any snaps on offense.

Philadelphia Eagles Johnathan Cyprien Jerseys Wholesale

Philadelphia Eagles defensive backs Johnathan Cyprien, and Orlando Scandrick are not expected to play in Preseason Week Four.
Soon, the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Jets will kick-off for the final preseason game of the NFL offseason. This weekend, 32 rosters across the league will be finalized with 53 men on each squad. Then, every team will prepare for the first week of the regular season.

Every year it doesn’t get any easier for teams and players around this time. Being that every team employs 90 total men on a roster for the offseason, a good chunk of those players will get released and sent off into free agency. Some may get picked up elsewhere — others could land on a practice squad. And worst of all, some do not make it back to the NFL.

For the younger players, they are fortunate enough to make it to the practice squad most of the time. But for older veterans, this is really their only shot. The Eagles have been rolling with a handful of players who are not practice squad eligible, but who have legitimate chances of actually cracking the final 53-man roster this weekend.

Those players are gearing up for a critical fourth game of the preseason though. As the locks on the Eagles won’t even suit up, it gives those players who are fighting for a roster spot an opportunity to showcase their skills one more time.

We’ve seen a list of all the players who won’t get the green light to go on Thursday. Shockingly enough, two players who were initially question marks to make the squad were present with those who are apparently locked in on the final roster. Veteran safety Johnathan Cyprien and veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick were amongst that group.

When the Eagles signed Johnathan Cyprien at the beginning of camp, it didn’t make much sense at the time. It felt like the team was genuinely high on former Rams safety Blake Countess, and they clearly had high hopes for the youngster, Tre Sullivan.

Well, a few weeks back the Eagles got rid of Countess and his contract with an injury settlement. And most recently, they waived Tre Sullivan, leaving Cyprien as the clear favorite to make the team behind Andrew Sendejo who was already assumed to be a lock from the beginning.

While Cyprien’s status isn’t all that surprising, Scandrick’s actually is. He wasn’t precisely dominating in training camp or the preseason, but the Eagles are most likely going to hold on to him as the cornerbacks unit continues to nurse multiple injuries.

Keep in mind, Cre’Von LeBlanc is rumored to be out until November with a foot injury potentially. Jalen Mills, on the other hand, hasn’t even come off the PUP yet for the Eagles. That right there solidifies that the Eagles need to keep somebody around for depth purposes and Scandrick makes total sense in this case.

Philadelphia Eagles Josh McCown Jerseys China

PHILADELPHIA — It was around 1 p.m. on Friday afternoon when Josh McCown took his seat on the plane, his ribs still sore from the night before, the after-effects of a 300-pound Ravens defensive lineman walloping him to the turf.
McCown still completed the touchdown pass anyway, a perfectly-placed at the back of the end zone for Eagles tight end Alex Ellis. McCown is 40, though, so getting hit like that hurts a little more than it used to. Especially since he’d been retired for six months.

“It’s a subtle reminder,” McCown said after the game, “that this is a little different than coaching high school football.”

Less than a week earlier, McCown was coaching practice more than 500 miles away at Myers Park High School in Charlotte. He officially retired in June, fresh off two productive years with the Jets and 17 years overall as a professional quarterback.

McCown was a full-time coach for the Mustangs when the Eagles came calling, desperate for a proven backup quarterback after Nate Sudfeld suffered a wrist injury.

He really was retired, though. Calls came in throughout the offseason from various teams, but McCown didn’t want to listen. There were only a few teams he’d even consider, and they had to meet his criteria.
He wanted to play for a contender with good organizational structure, a strong and respected coaching staff with a talented roster of players.

Another important factor: proximity to Charlotte. He wanted to be close to home, where his family lives, where he coaches.

Oh, and he wanted to keep coaching, too, though that wasn’t necessarily a requirement to sign him.

Anyway, he and the Eagles came to an understanding — McCown would be allowed to fly to Charlotte on Friday afternoon after practice, time permitting, and make it back in time to continue contributing as a coach for Myers Park on Friday nights. He’ll return promptly and won’t miss any team-required meetings, practices or any events.

The Eagles “understand the family dynamic,” McCown told NJ Advance Media on Tuesday. “The proximity to Charlotte was a factor, and part of why it made sense to sign here.”

That’s where McCown went after the preseason game against the Ravens last week, and it’ll continue this week after Thursday night’s game against the Jets, his old team.

Myers Park is blessed with a unique circumstance — an active NFL quarterback will be coaching them this season.

Most of the team watched their coach’s impressive performance against the Ravens last week, too, where he threw two nifty touchdown passes just five days after coming out of retirement.
When McCown walked into the Myers Park locker room the following evening, the players gave him a standing ovation. He blushed.

“It was in the moment,” said Mustangs quarterback Drake Maye. “We just all started clapping.”

McCown is 40 years old, now entering his 18th NFL season, playing for his 11th NFL team. He was the talk of Philadelphia after an unexpected preseason performance.

All he wanted to talk about was Olympic High School, Myers Park’s opponent that night.

In that moment, McCown only cared about coaching.

“I just wanted them to be focused on the game,” McCown told NJ Advance Media on Tuesday. “That’s the main thing. But I understand, I guess, the situation. To have someone that’s an active player in the NFL, working with, coaching you, that’s unique.

“I try to appreciate that,” he continued, “but it was short-lived and I got the guys to focus on business as usual.”

‘He does all the dirty work’
Myers Park coach Scott Chadwick and his staff have to paint the field lines on every practice field before the team can workout. That can take a while.

More than two hours before a recent practice, before anyone else had arrived, McCown was out there, painting every line.

This is nothing new. McCown attends every meeting, game-planning session and practice. He works with the quarterbacks — two of them are his sons — on the field and off, and coaches up the receivers and rest of the offense, too.
Earlier in the summer, the team did a sleep-away, team-bonding trip outside of Charlotte. McCown was there, sleeping in the dorms like everybody else.

“He slept on this awful, awful dorm mattress we had to sleep on,” Chadwick said, laughing. “We were roommates and I don’t think either one of us slept more than two hours straight because the mattresses were so bad.”

McCown’s 6-foot-4, 220-pound frame hung off the bed. He never complained.

“He does everything that a regular high school coach does,” Chadwick said. “He doesn’t just show up, he does all the dirty work.”

One more: at the end of a practice as dark clouds loomed large in the distance, everyone on the team was running inside to beat the coming inclement weather.

Not McCown.

“It’s about to start raining,” said Muhsin Muhammad III, Myers Parks’ star wide receiver, “and Coach McCown is just out there picking up all the bags, picking up all the footballs.

“It’s just like, man, you gotta a freakin’ NFL quarterback out here messing around with little high school cats … he’s just a great person.”

Chadwick says he’s had former NFL players on his staff before. The sons of NFL players line his roster.

None of the parents contribute quite like McCown, he said.

Philadelphia Eagles Rudy Ford Jerseys Cheap

Despite having very little experience playing safety in the NFL, Rudy Ford has the potential to become the Philadelphia Eagles’ next Chris Maragos.
The Philadelphia Eagles made two player-for-player trades during the preseason.

The first initially seemed the most promising; flipping undrafted Penn State offensive tackle (and Philly native) Ryan Bates to the Buffalo Bills for under-achieving, yet encouraging edge rusher Eli Harold after Week 1.

While some questioned this move initially, as Bates was clearly talented enough to make the Bills’ roster and can reliably serve as a reserve at all five offensive line positions, it seemed more promising than the team’s second move – flipping longshot defensive tackle Bruce Hector to the Arizona Cardinals for 2017 sixth-round safety Rudy Ford.

With even less time to make the roster and no clear player he was added to replace – Harold’s addition coincided with Joe Ostman‘s torn ACL – Ford looked like one of Howie Roseman‘s typical camp bodies – a player who would stick around for a month or so, collect a little money, and move on to a new opportunity elsewhere.

Clearly, that didn’t happen.

Fast forward to the Eagles’ initial 53 man roster, and it was Ford’s name, not Harold’s, filling up a spot on a depth chart.

In case you were wondering, Hector didn’t make the Cardinals’ initial 53 man depth chart, and is fittingly back in Philadelphia for his third stint on the Eagles’ practice squad.

Talk about having your cake and eating it too.

But Ford isn’t your typical bottom-of-the-roster safety brought to town just in case Rodney McLeod, Malcolm Jenkins, Andrew Sendejo, and Johnathan Cyprien catch the injury bug like Tre Sullivan before him. No, Ford is here for one reason, and one reason alone: To play special teams.

Much like Chris Maragos before him, the Eagles specifically targeted Ford for his ability to fly down the field with reckless abandon and tackle unsuspecting return men – and if anything, Ford is like Maragos on steroids.
While Ford had kind of an up-and-down college career, as he began his four-year tenure at Auburn as a running back, and only recorded 280 total tackles, five interceptions, and a pair of sacks over 39 games at safety, the 6-foot tall, 204 pound back burst up draft board by running a scorching 4.34 40 yard dash at his pro day.

That.Is.Fast.

So fast, in fact, that the Cardinals felt confident enough in Ford as an athlete to select him 208th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft despite being a clear work-in-progress on the defensive side of the ball.

And in a way, Ford came as advertised.

Despite only starting one game over his first two seasons in the desert, recording nine total tackles in 2018 and none in 2017, Ford did most of his damage on special teams – recording 169 snaps in 2017 and career-high 286 in 2018.

Granted, that may not seem like a lot, but they’re comparable to Maragos’ first two years in the league for the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks. Ford’s special teams prowess also kept him on the 46-man game-day active roster for 23 of a possible 32 games, nine more than Maragos was active for over his first two seasons.

As we’ve seen over the last decade, the Eagles are very willing to keep players who are predominantly special teamers with the hopes of developing their talents at their ‘natural’ positions like Kamu Grugier-Hill, Trey Burton, Mack Hollins, and yes, Chris Maragos.

While Maragos was never able to become even a rotational safety over his four-season run in Philly – and as we all saw, the team tried to make it so – maybe Ford and his supreme athletic gifts can join KGH, Burton, and (God willing) Hollins as a serious player down the line, and potentially earn defensive snaps as an actual safety.

NEXT: Pressure now on Mack Hollins to show Eagles wideout worth roster spot
But until that day comes, if it comes at all, at least the Philadelphia Eagles will once again have a dynamic special teams ace to bolster Dave Fipp‘s unit for years to come – only this season’s model is harder, better, faster, and stronger.

Cheap Nike Philadelphia Eagles Andre Dillard Jersey Authentic 2019

PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Eagles got their future left tackle to protect Carson Wentz’s blindside.

The Eagles traded up three spots to select Washington State left tackle Andre Dillard with the 22nd pick in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday night. Philadelphia sent Baltimore the 25th pick, a fourth-rounder (No. 127) and a sixth (No. 197) to move up.

Dillard isn’t expected to be in the starting lineup this season unless the offensive line has injuries. He’ll learn from nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters, who enters his 15th season at 37 years old. Peters started every game last season after missing nine in 2017.

“This wasn’t what we had anticipated. Our evaluation was this was the best tackle in the draft,” Eagles personnel boss Howie Roseman said. “Usually, those guys go in the top 10. That’s how we had it rated. When he started to fall, we saw an opportunity to get a top-10 player at an important position.”

Dillard was the third offensive lineman selected after Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom went 14th to Atlanta and North Carolina State center Garrett Bradbury went 18th to Minnesota.

The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Dillard started 39 games for the Cougars. He’s an athletic blocker who excelled at pass protection. Scouting reports say Dillard needs to work on his run blocking. He didn’t have to do much of it at Washington State, which predominantly threw the ball on offense.

“He wants to be great and he takes to coaching well,” Roseman said.

Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas said the team spent a lot of time with Dillard at the Senior Bowl and came away quite impressed.

“His foot quickness, is lower body strength, his ability to redirect, those are very intriguing to us,” Douglas said.

The Eagles were in position to select a player who doesn’t have to contribute right away after filling several needs in the offseason through free agency and trades.

After winning the Super Bowl in 2017 with backup quarterback Nick Foles filling in for Wentz, the Eagles reached the second round last season. Foles again led the team down the stretch and into January after Wentz was injured.

Dillard will join a unit that also features Pro Bowl right tackle Lane Johnson, Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks and All-Pro center Jason Kelce.

“He’s a special player,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said of Dillard. “He has a great opportunity to come in and learn from one of the best left tackles in the game.”

The Ravens took Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown with Philadelphia’s pick. Brown was a player some thought the Eagles would select. Roseman, however, has always valued offensive and defensive lineman in the first round.

The Eagles have two picks in the second round on Friday night, Nos. 53 and 57. They don’t have a third-round pick.

Running back, linebacker and receiver are among the positions the Eagles could target but they also could go a defensive back.

Wholesale Stitched Nike Philadelphia Eagles Gear For Sale

PHILADELPHIA — Eagles coach Doug Pederson was in no mood to discuss the health of quarterback Carson Wentz.

Speaking to the media Sunday, he was uncharacteristically terse in his responses and let his frustration show after a follow-up question related to the process of evaluating Wentz, who has yet to be cleared medically for contact.

“I don’t know how many times I can answer this question,” he said after a long pause and a laugh. “When they clear him, he’ll be cleared. I’m not going to put myself in a box, I’m not going to put my quarterback in a box. I’m not going to do that. And I’m not going to go on a limb and I’m not going to say that. So either ask it a different way or otherwise you’re going to get the same answer.”

Wentz resumed 11-on-11 work in practice last Sunday and has been splitting first-team work with Nick Foles. Wentz has said multiple times of late that it is “going to be close” as to whether he’ll get the green light to play against the Atlanta Falcons.

He is running out of time. The regular-season opener is on Thursday, Sept. 6. Once the Eagles get past this Thursday’s preseason finale against the New York Jets, game-planning for Atlanta will ramp up considerably. They’ll want to know definitely who their quarterback will be.

Wentz has shown increased mobility of late, his throwing velocity is actually up from this time last year, and there have been no signs of a setback in his recovery from a torn ACL and LCL in his left knee throughout training camp. It’s a matter now of him hitting the benchmarks that the medical staff has laid out.

There have been plenty of questions surrounding that process over the spring and summer, and Pederson apparently has had enough of them.

“I mean, he’s getting evaluated every day, if that’s what you want,” he said. “He’s part of the rehab process. He’s getting evaluated at practice, he’s getting evaluated by the medical team, he’s getting treatment just like Jason Peters is, just like Darren Sproles is — you guys don’t ask me about those guys — Jordan Hicks, Chris Maragos. Those guys are in the same boat and they are getting evaluated every day.”

Foles will get the start against the Falcons if Wentz can’t go. The Super Bowl MVP has struggled this preseason, including a three-turnover performance against the Cleveland Browns last week.

The first-team offense, which has been missing several key players, did not score a point in exhibition play. Although visibly frustrated last Thursday by the play of his offense, Pederson did not offer a harrowing assessment when asked about the Browns game Sunday.

“It actually wasn’t bad at all. The worst thing about it, obviously, was the turnovers and the missed opportunities,” he said, “but we had some really good things in the game.”
