Carson Wentz Says Mechanics Work Was Minor

Apr 18, 2017 8:13 AM

Carson Wentz is downplaying the offseason work he did with biometrics coach Adam Dedeaux.

Wentz's mechanics were a popular topic after his rookie season with the Philadelphia Eagles.

"I thought it was beneficial. I don't think it was anything real specific, but just overall, to help me fine-tune some things and just keep working at some things and making myself more efficient," he said. "I thought it was a productive visit down there."

Wentz said the work was on "simple things, things the naked eye probably wouldn't notice.  A lot of it had to do with footwork and stuff. But again, it was nothing real massive, just trying to make everything more efficient and smoother."

After he reviewed game tape from 2016, Wentz said he found minor things that should be tweaked, but there was "nothing big and evident."

The Ravens will move up 25 spots in the third round -- from No. 99 to No. 74 overall.

The Eagles hope Jernigan will help fill the void at defensive tackle left by Bennie Logan, who signed this offseason with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Chris Long Signs One-Year Deal With Eagles

Mar 28, 2017 12:41 PM

Chris Long has signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Long announced before the start of free agency that he wouldn't be returning to the New England Patriots.

Long totaled 35 tackles and four sacks in the regular season. In Super Bowl LI, he made the most of his 15 defensive snaps played, drawing a critical holding penalty that helped push the Falcons out of field goal range when they had been in position to kick a field goal late and possibly increase their lead to 11 points.

Eagles Cut Chase Daniel

Mar 13, 2017 7:51 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles have released Chase Daniel.

In a related move, the Eagles signed Nick Foles to serve as Carson Wentz's backup at quarterback.

"Chase's professionalism and intelligence were valuable assets to our quarterback room," said Eagles executive VP of football operations Howie Roseman. "His veteran leadership was incredibly helpful in (quarterback Carson Wentz's) development as a rookie, and his familiarity with Coach (Doug) Pederson's offense was instrumental in installing our system last season."

Titans, Eagles Talking Brandin Cooks Trade With Saints

Mar 2, 2017 12:54 PM

The New Orleans Saints are considering a trade of Brandin Cooks with the Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles involved in talks.

The Titans are considered the more likely suitor, per one source, but two other sources have conflicting opinions on which team is considered the favorite to acquire Cooks if the Saints trade him. 

The Titans own the 18th overall pick and could deal that selection straight up for Cooks.

Sean Payton has shot down reports that Cooks could emerge in trade talks -- calling them "garbage" late last season and recently telling SiriusXM Radio that he "absolutely" anticipates Cooks will remain a Saint this year.

Cooks expressed frustration about his role last season. Cooks felt he was being used too often as a clear-out receiver.
