Report: Eagles Could Trade Up In Draft If QB Slides

Apr 12, 2021 8:30 AM

The Philadelphia Eagles are considering all possibilities as the NFL Draft nears.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Eagles could move back up if a quarterback prospect falls within reach.

"If Trey Lance slides, if Justin Fields slides and the Eagles have a high grade on them, they could make that move," Fowler said on Sportscenter. "People I've talked to think the Eagles could go quarterback somewhere in this draft just to either get insurance for Jalen Hurts or competition for Jalen Hurts."

The Eagles moved down from No. 6 to No. 12 in a trade with the Miami Dolphins earlier this month.

JuJu Smith-Schuster Considered Signing With Chiefs

Apr 9, 2021 9:00 AM

JuJu Smith-Schuster told Michael Irvin that if he didn't re-sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers, he'd have joined the Kansas City Chiefs.

The wide receiver was also courted by the Baltimore Ravens.

"[Playing for a rival], too, and I'm curious to see how they're going to be this year having Sammy Watkins and how they're going to use him and throwing the ball and stuff like that," Smith-Schuster said of the Ravens. "Lamar [Jackson]'s a really, a heavy run offense with the backs that he has. I just, just point being facts. His No. 1 target was [Mark] Andrews, who's a tight end. I think, just seeing K.C. and bro, Andy Reid was just calling me and he was sending me Lombardi Trophy pictures like constantly. We had a good talk, so it would've been K.C. after the Steelers.

"Like texted it to me while I was trying to make a decision and I have so much respect for him and his team."

Josh Allen Won't Rush Long-Term Deal With Bills

Apr 9, 2021 8:57 AM

Josh Allen is in no rush to get a contract extension done with the Buffalo Bills.

"When it happens, it happens," Allen said on the 10 Questions with Kyle Brandt podcast. "Honestly, I love playing football. I want to listen and be engaged in the contract talks, but ultimately that's why you pay your agents. They'll iron out the details and if we get to something soon, I'd love to be locked down in Buffalo for a very long time.

"It's a place that I call home. I love being there, I love the fanbase, I love the city. Everything I want is there. If they called up and wanted to talk tomorrow, I'd be willing. We'll cross the bridge when we get there."

Allen set the Bills' franchise record for passing yards in a season (4,544) and passing touchdowns (37), finishing with a 107.2 passer rating in 2020.

Julian Edelman Doubtful To Play Entire 2021 Season

Apr 9, 2021 8:55 AM

Julian Edelman was limited to just six games in 2020 and it's doubtful he'll be able to play an entire season for the New England Patriots because of his troublesome knee.

Surgery has provided Edelman with temporary relief, but nothing will be able to solve the underlying problem.

The health of the knee could truly be a game-to-game situation in 2021.
