Let’s get to Philadelphia Eagles links …
Which teams would be interested in swapping for Kyler Murray? – PFT
The most obvious candidates would be the three finalists for Deshaun Watson, who did not get the new Brown quarterback: the Panthers, Falcons and Saints. This assumes that each of these teams would be OK with a quarterback who is on the very short side by having the NFL start quarterback standards. The Eagles might be interested. In the AFC, the Texans would also potentially explore the possibility. Whoever does so must be willing to pay Murray what he wants financially and give the cardinals what they would demand in terms of compensation. It may be more than some teams want to invest. [BLG Note: I’d pass on trading for and paying Kyler. I think the Eagles will, too.]
Kyler Murray did not expect to play for the Cardinals without a new contract – NFL.com
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is adamant about getting a new contract before heading on the field for the 2022 season. NFL Networks’ Tom Pelissero reported Thursday that Murray is not expected to play unless he gets a new deal, according to sources informed of the decision. The Cardinals have yet to make a contract offer to Murray, whose agent, Erik Burkhardt, told the team weeks ago he was pulling his opening proposal off the table, Pelissero added.
2022 NFL Mock Draft: Eagles go on the defensive with pick No. 18 – BGN
I know what you’re thinking. Howie draws a cornerback in the first round? Unlikely. Scary. Listen to me. We have an obvious need at Cornerback and have had it for a while. But in this mock draft scenario, we are positioned to add a solid piece to the defense. Booth here is a no-brainer, just like DeVonta Smith was. Booth is an elite talent and a piece that will make the Cornerback less of a need for some time to come. Let’s get down to the details.
NFL draft 2022 buzz notebook, rumors and chaos in first round: Updates on Travon Walker, Kyle Hamilton, Kaiir Elam, Drake Jackson – ESPN +
Hamilton is harder to pin down because the position value of Notre Dame security and a slower-than-expected 40-yard dash time appear to have cooled his stock. I see No. 15 and the Eagles as his floor. He is a top-five prospect on my board because of his toughness, physique and playing skills, but not all teams will value a safety so highly.
6 things to know with NFL Draft 2 weeks away! – PE.com
6. Sirianni talked to me about what wide receiver Zach Pascal brings to this team, and he discussed the “connection” he made with Pascal when the two were in Indianapolis. “For me, we live our core values, and our first core value is to connect. It’s not just something I wanted to do as a head coach, it’s something I strived to do as a position coach, it’s something I strived to do. as a coordinator. That’s one of the reasons you start training, “said Sirianni.” So hearing about it from a player I’ve had a previous relationship with means a lot. I’m super excited that Zach is on this team and we can continue to develop our relationship and he can continue to play for our organization. “
Report: Dallas Police Want to Interview Cowboys CB Kelvin Joseph on Murder Last Month – Blogging The Boys
Clearly, this is a very serious matter and one that goes beyond the game of football. Any potential involvement of Joseph justifies a police investigation. The report stated that Cowboy officials have urged Joseph to speak to police about what he knows, according to a team source who was not authorized to speak publicly about the case. Morning News also said Cowboy officials do not believe Joseph is the shooter, but both Cowboys and Joseph’s attorney declined to comment to the newspaper.
Jameson Williams could be the key to unlocking Commanders Offense – Hogs Haven
Williams would pair nicely with McLaurin as the Z or slot receiver, where he can more often find free releases. Washington had the 21st best passing attack due to a combination of subpar quarterback play and receiver production. Commanders cannot rely solely on Curtis Samuel’s recovery and Dyami Brown’s development to revive the passing attack. Washington upgraded from Taylor Heinicke to Carson Wentz, who is not only afraid to throw deep, but is also accurate. This would fit well with Williams, where he is on his most dangerous running routes downfield. Williams has # 1 receiver talent and production in his solo season in Alabama. His production and great play ability would be desperately needed for the Commanders’ anemic attacks. [BLG Note: I could totally see Washington landing Williams at No. 11.]
The Philadelphia Stars let fans name their Stoned Space Goblin mascot – SB Nation
If you appreciate big stupid mascots, the USFL’s Philadelphia Stars have you covered. Last week, the Stars unveiled their mascot, which I affectionately call “Stoned Space Goblin”, but since they know it’s not PG enough, they put the mascot’s name up for a fan vote.
