Eagles News: Zech McPhearson to start in 2022?

Let’s get to Philadelphia Eagles links …

Eagles Player Review: Zech McPhearson Edition – PhillyVoice
As mentioned above, if the season started today, McPhearson would likely be starting CB2 opposite Darius Slay, with Avonte Maddox in place. That, of course, could change if the Eagles pick a cornerback high in the draft. The Eagles may not be able to turn down a cornerback if a unique value presents itself, but the bet here is that they are unlikely to reach out for one, given the extreme abundance of young cornerbacks they have acquired since April last year. In other words, I believe Sirianni when he says he wants to see what the young guys can do, and of the corners on the list, McPhearson is the most likely to crack the starting lineup. He needs a strong offseason to convince the team not to sign a one-year Band-Aid type over the summer, as they did a year ago with Nelson.

Malcolm Jenkins goes down as one of the greatest leaders in Eagles history – BGN
Privately, he would laugh at it. Malcolm Jenkins knew the result. He knew in 2014 that Eagles fans were yelling for “the other guy”. Jenkins, who signed a $ 16.5 million three-year deal, with $ 8.5 million guaranteed, with the Eagles under Chip Kelly was then considered the “consolation prize” because the Eagles fan base shouted for free agent security Jairus Byrd, who agreed to a six-year, $ 56 million contract, including $ 28 million guaranteed, with Jenkins’ former team, the New Orleans Saints. Jenkins ended up playing six seasons with the Eagles without missing a game, and ended up being a fundamental piece for the 2017 Eagles Super Bowl championship team. Byrd played 33 games in three years for the Saints, in which he suffered a torn lateral meniscus knee ligament four games in his Saints career and was out of the NFL after the 2017 season. The story was successful for once for the Eagles, because without Jenkins on the court and in the locker room, the Eagles would not have won the Super Bowl in 2017.

NFL owners meet takeaways from Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman and Nick Sirianni – BGN Radio
The Eagles’ top decision-makers spoke earlier this week, and now Brandon Lee Gowton and Jimmy Kempski are here to break it down. The guys analyze what was said about Jalen Hurts, Derek Barnett, Fletcher Cox, Deshaun Watson and others. BLG and Jimmy also question whether the Eagles are in purgatory in addition to handing out their overall Eagles free agent ratings.

In Roob’s Observations, the critical role Jenkins played in 2017 – NBCSP
2. Interesting note about Jenkins: He had 21 interceptions in his career and returned seven of them for touchdowns. That’s the highest percentage of INTs turned into pick-6s in NFL history by any player with at least 15 interceptions. Next highest is Karlos Dansby, who returned six of his 20 INTs for touchdowns. Jenkins ranks 429th in NFL history in interceptions, but 12th in INT touchdown returns.

NFL draft 2022 wide receiver projections: Ratings, historical comps for the Treylon Burks, Garrett Wilson, Chris Olave, more – ESPN +
According to Playmaker, the Burks top the group of “good but not great” wide receivers in this draft. The Razorbacks have only passed 294 times this season, meaning the Burks’ 1,123 receiving yards and 11 touchdown receptions are more impressive than his raw numbers suggest. Arkansas also used the Burks successfully in the running game, recording 112 yards on just 14 carries. Historically, star-studded widows with multiple college rushing attempts per game tend to have less impressive statistics in the passing game than their talent would otherwise produce. But Burks edges the other top four prospects in all receiving stats despite also having several urgent attempts.

2022 NFL Draft Rankings: QB2 Matt Corral – NBC Sports Edge
There is work to be done to become an NFL passer at the top level, and Corral needs to better protect his body as a runner to give himself a chance to get there. But Corral is the only quarterback outside of Malik Willis in this class to have a top-10 NFL starting ceiling, with a screwed-up arm, a double-threat element to his game and moxie for days. I would roll the dice on him starting anywhere outside the top-10 if I needed a long-term quarterback and my OC ran a system that suited him.

The Patriots reportedly acquire Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker through trade – Pats Pulpit
After making no significant effort to strengthen their broad receiver depth chart in free agency, the New England Patriots have added the position group via trade. As first reported by NFL Networks Ian Rapoport, the team has acquired DeVante Parker from the Miami Dolphins. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, New England is sending a 2023 selection in the third round to the Dolphins for Parker and a 2022 fifth round. [BLG Note: Did you want the Eagles to do this deal?]

Frank Gore intends to retire with the 49ers, joining the San Francisco front office – NFL.com
The league’s third leading rusher ever is close to hanging his cleats up forever. Frank Gore told TheSFNiners.com this week that he plans to sign a one-day deal with the San Francisco 49ers, the team that drafted him, and to retire from the NFL. It’s just a matter of time. “We’re still trying to figure out when I need to go through my one-day contract, to sign, do my retirement,” Gore said. “I told (the owner) Jed York that I always want to be a niner. So we’re working on that right now.” [BLG Note: Should’ve signed a one-day deal with the Eagles! Smh.]

The riddle that is Derek Stingley Jr. and why he could be the Cowboys’ “Lamb / Parsons” selection this year – Blogging The Boys
It feels a little thin that the LSU star corner could drop to 24, but we should always be open to the possibility of crazy things happening. Stingley is one of the puzzles in the NFL draft as he was a shining star after his freshman season, but he has not shone so brightly over the past two years. Injuries have certainly played a role in it, and for that reason his stock continues to fall. But would he really fall that far? Well, Mike Tannenbaum from ESPN has to think about it when he mocked Stingley for the Cowboys a few days ago.

Report: Washington retained ticket sales revenue that was to go to visiting teams – Hogs Haven
It was reported this week that the House Committee on Oversight and Reform investigated the Washington Commanders for alleged financial irregularities. They were informed that the team had two sets of books for their finances. This claim has now been expanded and a new report from last night has given us some information on what that might mean. AJ Perez of From Office Sports broke the news that the House Oversight Committee has received information that Washington has allegedly retained ticket revenue believed to be sent to the league to be paid to visiting teams. The NFL bylaws say 40% of sales from each home game must be shared with the other team, and this new claim says Washington did not send the full amount.

Eds mock draft 5.0: Taking a different approach – Big Blue View
Round 1 (No. 5) – Trade! I accepted picks 20, 52 and a first-round pick in 2023 from the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for picks 5 and 147. Georgia winger Travon Walker, cornerback Sauce Gardner and offensive tackles Ickey Ekwonu and Charles Cross are all still on the board. I would guess that quarterbacks go after picks 5 and 6, and even if they do not, I will have two of those four players to choose from at No. 7. No reason not to do this, achieve a 2022 pick and in the second round set myself up with an extra 2023 first rounder.
