Eagles, Bradford reportedly talking short-term deal (NBC on Yahoo Sports)
User Rating: / 0
Tuesday, 04 August 2015
The Eagles and quarterback  Sam Bradford  are discussing a contract extension that would keep him in Philadelphia at least through 2016. Ed Werder of ESPN reports that the two sides are talking about a short-term deal that would keep him  in Philadelphia beyond just this season . Bradford’s current contract, the $78 million rookie deal that he signed as the first overall pick of the Rams in the 2010 draft, expires after this season. That means the Eagles would be faced with the choice in March of either signing Bradford to an extension, letting him walk, or putting the franchise tag on him. The franchise tag next year will likely be in the $25 million range. Bradford has said he’s willing to play for the $13 million he’s owed this year and  hit free agency next year , betting on himself that he can get a more lucrative deal after a good season in Philadelphia. The risk to Bradford of that approach is that if he gets injured again, he’s not going to command much money on the free market in 2016. Eagles coach Chip Kelly has said he believes in Bradford as the team’s franchise quarterback, so it makes sense that Kelly would try to get Bradford locked up beyond this season. Of course, Kelly has also said that  Mark Sanchez  will get every opportunity to win the starting job, so it seems a little premature to give Bradford an extension now, if he might be the backup in Week One. That may be why both sides are talking about the short term. An extension through 2016 would give both Bradford and the Eagles more time to see if they’re a good fit, and more time to work out a long-term deal if he does prove to be the Eagles’ long-term answer. - Pro Football Talk, NBC Sports

Take comparisons between Andrew Luck and Ryan Tannehill, two of the five current starting QBs drafted in 2012. This spring, Tannehill became the first of the group to sign a contract extension, and punter Pat McAfee was quick to suggest his Colts teammate was worth a lot more. Tannehill is actually 23-25 with the Dolphins.

Contracts hanging over Seahawks more than Super Bowl loss (The Associated Press)

Sunday, 02 August 2015
Forget about the Seattle Seahawks suffering from a ''Super Hangover'' after what happened in February. The events of the closing seconds in the Super Bowl became a secondary story line for the Seahawks this offseason, replaced by the ongoing questions about quarterback Russell Wilson's long-term future in Seattle. It was expected that Wilson would sign a contract extension that would keep him in a Seahawks uniform for years, make him one of the top paid quarterbacks in the NFL, and be structured in a way to help Seattle remain competitive through the life of the deal.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have shown few, if any, signs of progress over the past four years. Only Tampa Bay (1983-86), Detroit (2006-09) and St. Louis (2007-10) lost more games in a four-year window during those 37 seasons. Jacksonville will try - once again - to end its futility streak this season.

Le'Veon Bell's suspension reduced from three games to two (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Sunday, 02 August 2015
Lost in the hubbub of Tom Brady's suspension remaining at four games was some good news for the Pittsburgh Steelers. (Yes, they occasionally accomplish things together.) Running back Le'Veon Bell was able to have his three-game suspension pared down to two games after a settlement between the NFL and NFLPA. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] Bell had been arrested in August 2014 on DUI and marijuana possession charges when he was pulled over by police with then-teammate LeGarrette Blount. Marijuana was found in the car as the two players drove to the airport last preseason for a game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The offense occurred under the old NFL drug policy, and yet Bell's initial suspension — the three games — was consistent with the new guidelines. The two sides settled, and Bell will miss games (and be docked games checks) in Weeks 1 and 2 at the New England Patriots and home against the San Francisco 49ers, respectively. Bell will be eligible to return to action in Week 3 against the St. Louis Rams. "As I have stated before, we were disappointed in Le'Veon Bell's actions last August," Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement on Tuesday. "Le'Veon made a mistake and now he must learn from his mistake and focus on eliminating distractions from his life. We look forward to continuing to work with Le'Veon to try to help him reach his full potential as a person and as a player." Blount, now a Patriot, previously was suspended one game for his involvement in the incident. Bell can take part in all training camp practices and preseason games. Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson visited Steelers camp on Monday, writing about Ben Roethlisberger's belief the team can score 30 points per game , and the news that Bell will be back a game sooner makes a dangerous offense even more scary. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Sam Bradford looks healthy, on track to start Eagles' preseason opener (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Sunday, 02 August 2015
Lost a bit in the hoopla of the Philadelphia Eagles trading quarterbacks this offseason was that the quarterback they acquired was coming off back-to-back major knee injuries. It appears, however, that Sam Bradford has had a successful rehab. Bradford, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury during the 2013 season and suffered another torn ACL in the preseason last year, practiced on Sunday when the Eagles opened camp. He " didn’t look hindered at all " according to Philly.com's Jeff McLane. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league todayl ] McLane also wrote that Bradford has ditched a bulky knee brace in favor of a sleeve. Bradford told reporters the big brace was too constricting. He looks to be on track to start the Eagles' preseason opener, on Aug. 16. "I'm good to go. You guys might even see me pull one, run it up the middle," Bradford said, according to Philly.com .  The question will be if Bradford can stay healthy. He didn't last long in the preseason last year before re-injuring the knee, although he had a longer rehab time for his second ACL. Bradford is a former first overall pick, but injuries have set back his career. He finds himself in a system in which he could put up big numbers, as predecessor Nick Foles did in 2013, but to do so he'll need to stay healthy. So far it looks good for Bradford's health. There will be a lot of eyes on him as he tries to get through the preseason without any setbacks. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

Here we go with more 'Chip Kelly is racist' controversy nonsense (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Sunday, 02 August 2015
Chip Kelly might be a bit crazy when it comes to personnel moves, but that doesn't make the Philadelphia Eagles coach a racist, no matter how hard people pitch that controversy. Running back LeSean McCoy was first to insinuate Kelly was racist, likely because he was hurt he was traded to the Buffalo Bills. Former Eagles lineman Tra Thomas joined in the chorus for some reason . Now the comments of cornerback Brandon Boykin, after he was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday, are being put under the "is Kelly really a racist?" microscope. Ugh. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league todayl ] In a text to Derrick Gunn of CSN Philly, Boykin said Kelly is “uncomfortable around grown men of our culture.” “He can't relate and that makes him uncomfortable,” Boykin added in the text message to Gunn. “He likes total control of everything, and he don't like to be uncomfortable. Players excel when you let them naturally be who they are, and in my experience that hasn't been important to him, but you guys have heard this before me.” And immediately after the stories started coming that another player insinuated Kelly was racist. "Our culture" and "heard this before me" could be interpreted in different ways, but Boykin said Sunday that he wasn't saying Kelly was racist. "When you're a player, you want to be able to relate to your coach off the field," Boykin told reporters Sunday, according to ESPN. "There were times he just didn't talk to people. You would walk down the hallway, he wouldn't say anything to you. I'm not saying he's a racist in any way." Kelly wouldn't be the first coach who isn't that close to his players. But can we stop the Kelly-is-racist witch hunt? I'm just going to copy-and-paste this from when we went through this ridiculousness in May with McCoy : Kelly signed running back DeMarco Murray, who is black, to a $42 million deal this offseason to replace McCoy. He signed cornerback Byron Maxwell, who is black, to a $63 million deal this offseason. He also signed running back Ryan Mathews,   whose father is black , and cornerback Walter Thurmond, who is black. The Eagles made six draft picks last week, and the first five picks were black players. The Eagles   have seven black assistant coaches. If Kelly is a racist, he's really, really bad at being racist considering he keeps giving black men great jobs and gobs of money. There's no doubt that Kelly marches to his own drummer when it comes to running the personnel department, but I don't think that gives anyone a right to casually accuse Kelly of being a racist. I don't think the Eagles cutting Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis, who is white, out of the blue this offseason was racially charged. Neither was trading Nick Foles or cutting guard Todd Herremans, who are also white. Kelly just isn't conventional and he isn't scared to make bold moves. Kelly makes many moves that are easy to criticize, but it's really not getting us anywhere to wonder if Kelly is a racist every time he makes a controversial move that happens to involve a black player. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Part of what has made the Seattle Seahawks' defense the best in the NFL in recent seasons is the combination of Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor at safety. For the start of training camp, those All-Pro names have been replaced by Steven Terrell and DeShawn Shead as Thomas continues to recover from offseason shoulder surgery and Chancellor is holding out unhappy with his contract situation. Only the most die-hard Seattle fans would even know who Terrell and Shead are.

New Cowboy Greg Hardy donates $300 to help troll the Eagles (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Saturday, 01 August 2015
New Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy is trying to endear himself to a new fan base by helping them hate the Philadelphia Eagles. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league todayl ] A Cowboys fan set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to fly a banner over Eagles practice on Aug. 9 that read “ WE GOT THE DIVISION ” according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. That was in response to a rumor that Eagles fans planned to fly a banner over Cowboys practice reading "WE GOT DEMARCO," as in former Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray, who joined Philadelphia this offseason. And the Cowboys fans got a pretty nice donation after asking Hardy if he wanted to kick in. Hardy's Twitter handle is said to be @OverlordKraken, though he hasn't gotten it verified. He gave $300 and posted a picture of the verification. @CowboysNation pic.twitter.com/33DJuIuqQW — Focus (@OverlordKraken) August 1, 2015 And according to the page, to thank Hardy they will take his suggestion and the banner will read: “WE STILL DEM BOYZ! #SACKSCOMIN!” The fans needed $1,350 , and more than $2,800 had been donated by Saturday afternoon. The organizers said on the page that the extra funds will be donated to Children's Medical Center in Plano, Texas. Hardy won't be playing in Dallas' first game against Philadelphia, which is in Week 2. He is suspended the first four games of the season due to a domestic violence incident last year. Hardy has been put off limits to the media by the Cowboys during camp (though he has talked some ) so he has to find another way to get in good with the fans of his new team, who surely know all about his past. Giving a few hundy to troll the Eagles will probably play pretty well in Dallas. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?
