The NFL draft is over. Here is every Eagles addition this offseason:

Saquon Barkley
Bryce Huff
CJGJ
Zack Baun
Kenny Pickett
Devin White
Oren Burks
PJ Mustipher
Tyler Hall
Parris Campbell
Will Grier
C.J. Uzomah
Tyrion Davis-Price
Darian Kinnard
Devonte Parker
Julian Okwora

Draft

Quinyon Mitchell
Cooper DeJean
Jalyx Hunt
Will Shipley
Ainias Smith
Jeremiah Trotter Jr
Trevor Keegan
Johnny Wilson
Dylan McMahon

OC: Kellen Moore
DC: Vic Fangio

Also added a 3, 4 & 5 next year too and came out with 9 picks when we only had 8 in the beginning.
25 new players plus UDFA's seems insane. That's half the team if they all make it!
Well can you say we didn't need it after the end of last year?

Not saying it's a bad thing at all! Just is crazy to replace half the team!
 
Howie Roseman is going to have a street named after him in Philadelphia
The man continues to run rings around many other GM/VPs in the NFL
Not sure where he ranks exactly but he would be high on my list.
And I did look up the Hall of Fame and there have been a handful of folks from the Front Office section of the NFL that made it into the Hall of Fame
Another Lombardi Trophy and I would want to discuss Roseman as a potential candidate

That's where I'm at after watching Philly continue to do well in these Drafts.
I know Roseman has had some bad ones, everyone does but he continues to overturn the roster as needed
It's not emotional, it's business and he's not afraid to open up the checkbook to acquire talent and take care of the true Pro Bowlers that grace the team

I've said enough but I watch a lot of Philly games, watched Miami lose to y'all a couple times, I take good notes and Philly is a team I measure moves that Miami makes
Right now in the modern NFL, the Eagles are a team you want your home team to emulate. I have a few of these but Philly is on the short list.
Some teams take a "Half Measure" and the Eagles decided to take a "Full Measure" at DB

Would have been crazy not to make big changes. They straight up sucked the last 2 months of the season

I know, I'm not saying it's bad lol.

25 new players was "needed but still extremely unusually substantial" if that clears it up lol
 
Signed Mehki Becton as the swing tackle. Wonder if Stoutland can simply just groom him to be the heir apparent to Lane Johnson.

Just an absolutely incredible offseason. And we still have 10 picks in next years draft. Howie is a madman.

I like it but the guy can't stay healthy. Would be surprised if he helps us much

If Roseman were the GM of Miami, his #1, #2 and #3 move would be draft OL to protect your QB.

Played 16 games and 95% of the offensive snaps last season for the Jets.
 
Becton is more likely to wind up like the Chance Womack experiment with "Jack Driscoll"-like being a good outcome. Jeff Stoutland is great and all, but there's always the occasional lost cause that even he can't spin gold from.

which was amazing because Becton missed 33 out of 34 games in 2021 and 2022 due to two surgeries on his right knee.
 
DAL is signing Zeke to a contract, while still having $6M on the cap this season from his last contract. It's a bold strategy, Cotton, let's see if it pays off for them.
I mean if you're already paying him, might as well let him be on your roster.

What a canyon of difference in team building strategies between the 2 division rivals.
 
Eagles take Florida State WR Johnny Wilson.

Have to think he’s a possible TE given his size
honestly a pretty big steal. The kind of "low risk, tremendous reward" kind of thing:

A lot of people think he'll have a hard time making the team.

I agree with this and at the same time feel confident that he will get a starter or two out of him, McMahon, Keegan, Ayedze or Dankwah.

You can't go wrong thinking this bc Jordan Mailata.

There's been so many who have exceeded expectations under him. It's an extremely long list actually.
 
Boston Scott signed a 1-year deal with LAR. Farewell, Giant killer.
Simply no room to keep him around anymore. Barkley should be our Giant killer now. There's gonna be a lot of familiar faces cut with the myriad of new players we brought in this year.

If Barkley mean I don't have to watch anymore of Kenneth Gainwell, he immediately becomes my favorite Eagle of all-time.
 
Feel bad for Gainwell. He's a decent depth back. It's not his fault the coaches vastly overrate him. Not sure what they are seeing with him, but assume he'll be gone in FA after this year and Shipley will take his place. That being said, I also hope Gainwell sees the field as much as Penny did last season.
 
With their international roster spot the Eagles signed Laekin Vakalahi from Australia. 6-5, 318-pound 21-year old from Brisbane has never played American football. He played junior league rugby and spent the past two years on a mission trip. For the past month, he trained at the athletic performance center that trained Ravens OT Daniel Faalele (also Australian.) He has 35-inch arms and an 83-inch wingspan. 🤔

I don't understand the Gainwell hate TBH. He's no stud, but does everything decent. Decent receiver out of the backfield, fair blocker. If we dropped him he'd have 12 suitors within a day. Terrific depth RB who can fill a 3rd down role and/or give meaningful relief snaps to most starters

I think 2 things created the ‘hate’ for Gainwell.

1. We had Swift, who looked on the verge of being a superstar, taken out of games at really critical times.

2. Biggest issue was playcalling last year. And #1 above was part of that. But the ridiuclous, vanilla, predictable playcalling last year was the most frustrating part of the collapse. “Run the f’ing ball!” was like a mantra for Birds’ fans last year during games. Gainwell being subbed in and performing “meh” was like gas on a fire of fans’ frustration.

So, maybe unwarranted, but Gainwell became a scapegoat, being like the living embodiment of fan frustration with crappy playcalling and misusing Swift and the run game.

My cousin saw this kid in Australia when he was over there last. Another beast

Like I said above, the coaches vastly overrate him. He was the day 1 starter...why? Not his fault, the hate should go toward the coaching, but he gets the brunt of it.
 
On this day (May 6th) in 1994, Jeffrey Lurie purchased the Philadelphia Eagles from Norman Braman for $185 million, the highest price paid for a sports team, at that time. Equivalent to $401 million in today’s dollars, the current value of the franchise is estimated to be $5 billion.

During these past 30 years:

286-228-3 record (.556 winning percentage)

18 playoff appearances

10 NFC East titles

7 NFC championship games

3 Super Bowls

1 Lombardi Trophy

Here is Peter King’s 1994 profile on Lurie in Sports Illustrated:

Hollywood producer Jeffrey Lurie is a member of that most rabid subspecies of NFL fanatic, the draftaholic. In recent years he has prepared for the league's annual college draft by holing up in the media room above the garage of his Beverly Hills home and watching tapes of the Blue-Gray Game, the Japan Bowl, the Senior Bowl—Lurie would have them all—on his big-screen, surround-sound TV. Last year Lurie, a fan of the New England Patriots, the team with the first pick in the 1993 draft, went even further. He and Jeffrey Auerbach, a fellow producer and football nut, obtained Washington State and Notre Dame game films, the better to study the talents of the two top quarterbacks in the draft, the Cougars' Drew Bledsoe and the Irish's Rick Mirer.

"We watched the films, and 98 percent of the time we'd see Bledsoe go for what appeared to be the primary receiver, while Mirer would look for his second and third option," says Auerbach. "We decided you couldn't go wrong, because they were both so good. I favored Mirer. But Jeff favored Bledsoe for the Patriots because of his raw talent." The Patriots, of course, took Bledsoe.

Last week obsession met reality when Lurie, who late last year abandoned an attempt to buy the Patriots because it didn't make financial sense, agreed to shell out the highest price ever for a pro sports franchise. Subject to the anticipated approval of NFL owners, Lurie will pay Miami car dealer Norman Braman $185 million for the Philadelphia Eagles. Steep? That doesn't begin to describe it. Five years ago Jerry Jones paid $140 million for one of the NFL's crown jewels, the Dallas Cowboys. The reason for the Eagles' enormous price tag is that Philadelphia was one of the few financially solid NFL franchises that Lurie, who desperately wanted to buy a team, could hope to pry from its owners. Braman, widely unpopular in Philadelphia because of his perceived greed, wasn't aching to sell his team when he and Lurie began talking a few months ago. "If you don't want to sell your house, and I want to buy it, that makes it hard to cut a deal," says Lurie's lawyer and adviser, Daniel Kaplan.

The 42-year-old Lurie, heir to a publishing and movie-theater fortune, won't be your average NFL owner. A liberal deeply concerned, friends say, with the rights of women and the poor, Lurie grew up outside Boston and earned a master's in psychology from Boston University and a Ph.D. in social policy from Brandeis. His dissertation was entitled "The Depiction of Women in Hollywood Movies." As a filmmaker he is known for movies that promote causes or offer the kinds of complex women's roles seldom available to Hollywood actresses. He cast Kathleen Turner as a private eye in the critically panned 1991 movie V.I. Warshawski and recently made an HBO movie about the plight of inner-city hospitals called State of Emergency. Fueled by the fact that he has an autistic brother who recently began to communicate after a lifetime of silence, he is also heavily involved in autism research.

"The most misleading two-word introduction about Jeff is 'Hollywood producer,' " says Auerbach. "He's so non-Hollywood. He's an East Coast guy who happened to want to make movies."

Last Friday, two days after reaching tentative agreement with Braman, Lurie attended a Brooklyn Dodger reunion in Manhattan. Afterward he spoke of being moved by the emotional ties between the former Dodger players and Brooklyn. Friends say that such connections are something he would like to foster with the Eagles in Philadelphia. Lurie is also likely to push Philadelphia's city fathers to install grass at Veterans Stadium, where, according to many NFL players, the AstroTurf is the worst playing surface in the league.

Another of Lurie's avowed goals is to build a bridge between himself and the Eagle players, many of whom intensely disliked Braman. As Lurie put it last week, "I want a relationship with the players that fosters their ability to give everything they can, knowing their owner is backing them 100 percent at all times."

To Philadelphia's traditionally skeptical fans, Lurie sounds like the anti-Braman. In a city passionate about its Eagles, he could be the best news in years.
 
Shady and DJax have a podcast and on tomorrow’s episode:
