Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …
Report: Colts may be interested in trading for Eagles QB Gardner Minshew – Reuters
The Indianapolis Colts can’t get enough of the Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks, allegedly. According to CBS’ Jason La Canfora, trading for Gardner Minshew could be plan B for the Colts if they can’t find a way to add a more decorated starting quarterback first. […] I don’t know if anyone is trading Minshew as a starter in 2022 because they absolutely have to get him, but he might be an option for a team that loses a quarterback to injury in the offseason, or like in La Canfora. example above with the Colts, if they run out of other options first.
NFL Mock Draft Roundup: David Ojabo is the Eagles’ most popular pick – BGN
The 2022 NFL Draft is just 46 days away! Let’s pass the time together until then by looking at who the fictional drafts selected the Philadelphia Eagles with their three first-round picks as a result of the Combine.

In the latest episode of Eye on the Enemy, John Stolnis chats with Commanders writer/analyst Mark Bullock, formerly of The Athletic, now alone on the Wentz trade.

Prepare – Iggles Blitz
There have been rumors of JuJu Smith-Schuster as a target. He’s had his ups and downs as a player, but is only 25 and would be a natural fit in the slot. With him in there and fast guys like DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins on the outside, Hurts would have good options all over the court. Would you agree to replace JJAW with JJSS? Some have suggested Keelan Cole as an Eagles target. It wouldn’t cost much and would fit into a group of receivers. Cole can do dynamic captures. He will block and he has some experience as a returner. Cole isn’t special, but checks a lot of boxes. Dave Caldwell drafted him to JAX and Caldwell is now part of the Eagles front office. If the Eagles want to spend the money, Christian Kirk could be a target. He played in the slot machine and outside. Kirk is young, talented and productive. He’s going to cost over $10 million per season, with some speculating he could get $15 million. How much is it worth? How aggressive do the Eagles want to be?

2. Quez Watkins’ 647 yards are even more impressive considering he had three or fewer targets in 10 of 17 games. Of 91 wide receivers who had at least 50 targets last year, Watkins ranked 5th with 10.4 yards per target. Behind only Deebo Samuel, Kendrick Bourne, Ja’Marr Chase and Tyler Lockett. Not a bad company.
Panthers are betting favorites to land Deshaun Watson – PFT
While the trade market for Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is in overdrive, a betting market is emerging. The folks at PointsBet have compiled the odds for the next team that Watson will take a nod to. The favorite is the Panthers at +175. However, until it’s known that Watson has changed his mind about the Panthers (he refused to waive his no-trade clause for Carolina a year ago), it’s a risky bet. . Next come the Buccaneers at +400, followed by the Seahawks at +450 and the Texans at +500. The Browns are at +700, the Eagles at +800, the Dolphins at +800, the Saints at +1000 and the Steelers at +1000.
BREAKING: Dallas Cowboys trade WR Amari Cooper to Cleveland Browns for fifth- and sixth-round picks – Reuters
Dallas sends Cooper and his own sixth to the Browns in exchange for Cleveland’s fifth- and sixth-round pick, so the real net is only one pick. Obviously it’s not a lot but it’s something that’s more than nothing. The biggest win for Dallas here is Cleveland taking over the entire contract from Cooper who the Cowboys desperately wanted off their books despite agreeing just two years ago. It’s been a long road to get here, but we got there nonetheless. All told, the Cowboys offense enjoyed a renaissance with Cooper in the fold and they are now officially moving on without him. CeeDee Lamb will be tasked with being the team’s best receiver and Michael Gallup (assuming he returns) will also contribute. [BLG Note: The majority of BTB’s audience graded the Cooper trade as a ‘D’ or ‘F’.]
Giants free agency preview: ‘Very calculated’ offseason begins – Big Blue View
So what’s the plan? Schoen said the plan had to be “very calculated”. He admitted to the Combine that the biggest issue is how to straighten out the squad cap situation while fielding a competitive squad in 2022 is “the big question”. Expect low-cost moves with high-potential players, like signing Gono. Targeted short-term signings of second-tier free agents to supplement needs, perhaps like recently released former Buffalo Bills guard Jon Feliciano. Nothing splashy. Nothing too expensive. Nothing long term. We’ve seen a lot of this before. Let’s just hope Schoen and Co. are better than their predecessors. “We want to compete today and also build for tomorrow,” Schoen said. “I think if we’re able to do this in the right way, I think there’s a real possibility that we can do it.
Mark Tyler’s Hogs Haven Mock Offseason 3.0 – We’ve Got Our QB! – Haven of Pigs
I hope Wentz can be our quarterback for the future, and I’m willing to give him that chance to prove himself, rather than signing a rookie to sit behind and learn from him in what many consider as a weak class. If he works; awesome. If he doesn’t, we can look to the 2023 draft for a signal caller. Since we don’t have a ton of cap space right now (although we could easily do more), I’ve set out to fill some holes in free agency with players that won’t break the bank . Pairing Ertz with his former quarterback does two things. First, it gives Carson a familiar face, which should also be a confident one in the locker room. And two, it gives us a nice vertical threat to the position, AND insurance in case Logan Thomas doesn’t make a 100% recovery from the knee injury he suffered at the end of last season.
