Eagles FS Malcolm Jenkins: ‘Swag, I Hate That Word’

Philadelphia Eagles starting free safety Malcolm Jenkins appeared on NFL Network’s daily morning show “NFL AM” on Wednesday to discuss Chip Kelly’s various stunning offseason moves and what he thinks his head coach, whose often referred to as a mad scientist, will do in the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft.
At the end of the interview, Jenkins expressed confidence that the Eagles would draft a wide receiver or a defensive back with their first round pick. NFL AM host Molly Qerim then said, “swag, swag all day?”
As you can see in the clip below, Jenkins responded by saying he hates that word.

Malcolm Jenkins on McCoy trade: Could’ve gotten more

The dust finally appears to be settling from the shocking LeSean McCoy trade and subsequent insane free agency frenzy but that doesn’t mean there won’t be some interesting remarks on the feisty NFL offseason. One of those remarks came from McCoy’s old Philly teammate, Malcolm Jenkins, who said Eagles players weren’t particularly surprised by the

Malcolm Jenkins has Some Interesting Thoughts on LeSean McCoy Trade

The entire world was shocked when news broke that the Philadelphia Eagles traded running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills. However, behind the scenes, it does not appear that many of McCoy’s former teammates were that surprised.
During an interview on NFL Network, safety Malcolm Jenkins shared what Chip Kelly prefers in a running back as far as type and style go.

For everybody who is in the locker room and really knows Chip and what he’s looking for, it wasn’t necessarily surprising.
You look at the style of runner that Chip wants in his offense and even though Shady is one of the best backs in the league, he’s not necessarily what Chip is looking for all the time. Chip thinks he’s a great running back, he knows his talent is there, but our (system) is really predicated on downhill, somebody who is going to hit the hole every time. It’s about getting up in the defenders face as fast as you can and that’s not necessarily Shady’s running style.

Though Jenkins and others weren’t shocked

Malcolm Jenkins says McCoy trade ‘wasn’t necessarily surprising’

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said that the team’s move to trade running back LeSean McCoy ‘wasn’t necessarily surprising’ to teammates, who understand what coach Chip Kelly is trying to do.

“For everybody who is in the locker room and really knows Chip and what he’s looking for, it wasn’t necessarily surprising,” Jenkins said, via NFL.com.

“You look at the style of runner that Chip wants in his offense and even though Shady is one of the best backs in the league, he’s not necessarily what Chip is looking for all the time,” Jenkins said. “Chip thinks he’s a great running back, he knows his talent is there, but our (system) is really predicated on downhill, somebody who is going to hit the hole every time. It’s about getting up in the defenders face as fast as you can and that’s not necessarily Shady’s running style.”

DeMarco Murray is long gone from the Dallas Cowboys after signing a contract with the rival Philadelphia Eagles.

The recent trade that brought linebacker Kiko Alsonso to the Philadelphia Eagles raised the total number of former Oregon players on the roster to nine. Some people (present company included) are beginning to wonder if Chip Kelly is taking that connection too far.
Not this guy though. This guy is all in with Chip’s new vision for the team…

How do you feel about the 2015 Eagles so far?

 
 
 
 
This is one of those “I’ve got nothing!” days for me— I mean, I’m glad the Eagles have extended inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans for another two seasons, and that’s about the extent of my enthusiasm for team news right now.  This means the medical outlook on DeMeco’s rehab from a reconstructed Achilles tendon is good.  The extended contract has a very gentle cap hit, too.  It would be a bonus situation for the defensive depth of the team if Ryans can get back to his 2013 form.  DeMeco is so good at lining up his teammates he makes everyone around him better.
But to be realistic, it is still only April 1—  Ryans has a lot more work and pain ahead of him to really prove he can get back to full impact form by August.
So I take a deep breath— but don’t call it a “sigh”…

2015 NFL Draft: Philadelphia Eagles should target Landon Collins

The playoffs seemed to be a surefire happening as last season began to wane, the weakness that was the Philadelphia Eagles’ secondary made it impossible.
After dominating the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving last year the Eagles found themselves sitting atop the division at 9-3 and in the driver’s seat in terms of not only being in the playoffs, but hosting at least one game. Philadelphia would go on to lose three of their remaining four games and find themselves with their second consecutive ten-win season, though this time they would be watching the playoffs rather than hosting a postseason game.
Russell Wilson and Tony Romo didn’t posted gaudy numbers in their victories over Philly during the last quarter of the NFL regular season. But between them, in consecutive games, they scored five passing touchdowns and threw for over five hundred and twenty-five yards. The three Tony Romo touchdown passes were all to All-Pro Dez Bryant. Bradley Fletcher, former Philadelphia Eagle, attempted to cover Dez in thei

Philadelphia Eagles extend MLB DeMeco Ryans

Ryans was originally scheduled to make 6.9 million in 2015. This extension is worth just 7.5 million over 2 years. However, the problem is that 6.25 million of this new deal is guaranteed, which means it’s essentially fully guaranteed (the Eagles are highly unlikely to cut Ryans next off-season with guaranteed money still owed to him in 2015). Ryan’s original 6.9 million dollar salary in a 2015 contract year was non-guaranteed and the Eagles could have cut him with no penalty and saved 6.9 million in cash and cap space.
With that in mind, they should have cut him, rather than giving him this extension. Even forgetting the fact that Ryans isn’t necessary any more with the Kiko Alonso trade (Alonso and Mychal Kendricks are more than capable of manning the two interior linebacker spots if both are healthy), Ryans just isn’t that good. He’s coming off a torn Achilles that limited him to 8 games last season and he’s going into his age 31 season. He wasn’t horrible in those 8 games in 201…

Eagles sign DeMeco Ryans to a contract extension

This upcoming season, the Philadelphia Eagles could have one of the strongest linebacking corps in the NFL. This offseason, they added inside linebacker Kiko Alonso via trade and re-signed outside linebacker Brandon Graham. Today, they made another move to solidify their linebacking corp, by extending one of their own.
According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles have signed veteran inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans to a one-year contract extension through the 2016 season. McLane also reports that with Ryans’ signing the contract extension, it will lower his salary from this upcoming season which was $6.9 million.
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly made it clear that he wanted Ryans back since suffering a torn Achilles in 2014 against the Houston Texans. Kelly called Ryans their Mufasa, when referring to how the defense must step up in his absence.
In eight games played last season, Ryans had 45 tackles, four pass deflections and an interception. The question now is how will he look coming back

Philadelphia Eagles Will Reportedly Sign Miles Austin Pending a Physical

The possible latest addition to the Philadelphia Eagles roster will be wide receiver Miles Austin if he receives a clean bill of health after a physical.

The #Eagles will sign WR Miles Austin when he visits this week, source said, assuming all goes well with the physical.

Austin, who spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Dallas Cowboys then one uneventful season with the Cleveland Browns, looks to be a reach for the Eagles in their attempt to fill the void left by Jeremy Maclin’s departure.
Over the course of Austin’s career, he has put up some solid numbers. From 2009-2010, Austin tallied over 2,300 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns. Since then, the veteran has had multiple hamstring injuries and has played just one full 16-game season.
The 30-year-old receiver will only make for a small bandage to pick up the slack that Maclin leaves behind. If he passes his physical (no sure bet), Austin will join wide receiver Riley Cooper, and second-year

Austin played seven seasons with the Cowboys before going to the Cleveland Browns last year.
He’s caught 36 career touchdowns and has some experience on kick returns, but he hasn’t done that since 2009. Rotoworld had Austin ranked the eighth best wide receiver still on the market.
