Or maybe this softens the blow when the Eagles exercise the option on Foles and he needs to pay back $2MM to get free agency.

Right - you just have to be willing to pay Sudfeld around $2.3MM next year to be the back-up in order to tender him at the 2nd round comp level.

Clement will be back and he'll be fine back there since he's also a backup RB

I think they believe in Sudfeld and they'll tender him at a 2nd round tender. If someone wants to sign him and we get a 2nd? That's pretty remarkable and you accept it and get a vet Doug likes.

DE - Barnett coming back will be huge. I think his season 3 could be a big one. Also, I think they like Sweat and a full off-season in our weight room should do wonders. I'm not so sure Chris Long...

He did. Not sure he was targeted much but he has really improved as a blocker. I saw him pick up a couple of blitzes and he absolutely saved Foles on pass blocking in the Chicago game.

Eagles have the option to keep him for $20MM next year. IF the Eagles exercise that option, then Foles has the opportunity to pay back his $2MM 2018 bonus he received which grants him free agency. ...

I think you'll see a purge of the WR corps. Alshon is back but I bet you see Tate take a contract elsewhere as well as the Eagles declining paying Agholor his $9MM for this upcoming season. We need...

No way you can wait on Trout. There is no guarantee he'll ever become available. Harper or Machado will be cornerstones of the squad for the next decade. Signing one (or both) is a real need IMO. ...

The Eagles ran 36 of their 61 plays vs the Rams in "12" personnel (2 TEs). They did most of their running damage in this formation but Nick was also 9-12 for 112 yards w 2 TEs. I think they can get...

My guess is neither. They need to get a guy that can stretch the field. Neither of them has really shown the ability to do that. We might be able to get Mike Wallace back on a real low # and...

It's contract #2 for him and that is the payday in the NFL. Someone will give him guaranteed money up front with a multi-year deal and I doubt the Eagles will do it. He's a good team player and...

I agree on the RB front. They need a dynamic talent there. I'm not saying use our 1st rounder on one but we have 3 picks in the top 55 next year. Spend one on a RB.

Kelce hurt his knee during the first half. He walked it off and continued playing. Gutted it out. I wonder if that hampered him some.
