Actually I have. However I am still confused which isn't saying much.


Poor Nabbsy. Someone get him a blanket for his knees, a transistor radio and a few penny candies. Preferably the root beer barrels.

Do either

Philip Thomas S from Sytacuse

or

Cliff Harris CB from oregon have a chance?

Harris's bio seems to indicate he has punt return skills. Did he miss his senior year at Oregon?

The Eagles will sign WR Tiger Jones, sources tell the Philadelphia Daily News.

Quote:
Jones was the Arena Football League's Receiver of the Year in 2011 for Dallas before joining the Philadelphia Soul and putting up similarly dominating numbers in 2012. He'll face a steep uphill battle to make the Eagles as a 30-year-old wideout that stands just 5'11/195. Jones is unlikely to knock Riley Cooper or rookie Marvin McNutt off the squad.


Good luck?

Heard Jaws pimping him on the radio the other day...there's no way he makes the team with our depth at WR and his age.

He does have some pretty cool TD celebrations. Him and Djax would battle for swag.

Fav was by far the people's elbow on the football...

Quote:
Trent Edwards had his mechanics adjusted this offseason to fit the Eagles' scheme.

Quote:
Edwards struggled badly with the change, often missing throws in offense-only drills. He'll enter camp behind Mike Kafka and rookie Nick Foles. We wouldn't expect Edwards to crack the final roster.

Quote:
The Sideline View's Adam Caplan thought Brent Celek looked "all the way back" from his surgeries during offseason workouts.

Quote:
Celek underwent hip and hernia surgeries shortly after the 2011 season. Per Caplan, the rugged tight end now looks more fluid getting off the line. Celek posted 811 yards and five touchdowns while laboring through the injuries last season.


http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/6641/alex-henery
Quote:
Eagles K Alex Henery reportedly kicked with a lot of confidence during offseason workouts.

Quote:
Henery has no reason not to be confident. Over the final 12 games of last season, he went 16-for-16 on field goals. The second-year man is a strong fantasy kicking option in the Eagles' potentially explosive offense.

We probably could have drafted him in the 5th round though.

Don't get greedy.

Consider the fact the he's probably going to end up being better for us then anyone picked before him, we probably should've went and selected him in the first round.

Teams the past decade have not messed around when a Franchise or Legit Kicker (10+yrs a given) is available coming out of college. You have to pay the piper. Barring injury we won't be worrying about a Kicker for at least the next decade.

00' Seabass 1st
04' Kaeding 3rd
05' Nugent 2nd
06' Gostkowski 4th
11' Henery 4th

David Akers has scored 1491 points over his career 11 year career.

Alex could be that guy, your logic makes no sense. We got a steal if you think about it.

Yeah taking Henery in the 4th was a calculated risk that our FO seems to have hit on. Not only was he the most prolific kicker in NC two A history, but his position seemingly translates easier than any other on the football field from amateur to professional. If he can stay healthy and consistent while remaining an Ealge for a decade plus, which shouldn't be too difficult IMO, he could one day break Akers' franchise scoring record.
