Anyway, take him off your wishlist. The Eagles were attracted to him when he got right here out of faculty several years within the past so there used to be a thought he’d be an correct fit now. And he could presumably were a mid-tier-vogue of free agent at a plight the put we know the Eagles doubtlessly received’t utilize astronomical. Oh properly. 

1: 25 p.m.: I even bear be taught this worship 25 times and it smooth doesn’t kind any sense. Invoice O’Brien has misplaced his rattling mind.

— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) March 16, 2020

The Eagles will play the Cardinals on the avenue this 12 months so that they’ll gape DeAndre Hopkins soon ample. It’s elegant to wonder if the Eagles were ever in on a deal for him. The cost, to position it mildly, looked affordable. 

12: 27 p.m.: Per our private Derrick Gunn, Vinny Curry is receiving some passion from the Jets and Jalen Mills is receiving passion from the Lions. 

Two gorgeous glaring connections with every. The Jets’ same previous manager is Joe Douglas, who got right here from Philly. And the Lions’ new DC is Cory Undlin, who had been Mills’ plight coach for the first four years of his profession. 

Eagles RB Corey Clement who’s a restricted free agent could be allowed to take a look at free agency… Eagles could presumably attempt to train him support at a decrease be conscious…. the Jets are attracted to free agent Vinny Curry and the Lions bear their eyes on Jalen Mills. Per league offer.

A shock: the #Vikings bear franchise tagged S Anthony Harris, either conserving him in Minnesota or allowing them to alternate him. Presumably the discontinue FA security received’t be free.

— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 16, 2020

Harris is 28 and has been a extraordinarily gain participant for the Vikings for the duration of his five-12 months profession. He had six interceptions remaining season to retain company with 60 tackles. 

10: 51 a.m.: The Eagles are bringing support rotational DT Hassan Ridgeway on a one-12 months deal.

BREAKING: The Cowboys bear put the franchise mark on Dak Prescott & continue to work on a protracted-term take care of Amari Cooper.

This implies that if the Cowboys don’t secure a deal completed with Cooper within the following couple days, he’ll become a free agent and be the discontinue receiver on the open market. While the Eagles are anticipated to be astronomical players for the Cowboys’ other high pending FA (CB Byron Jones), if Cooper if truth be told turns into on hand, they’d will bear to be alive to. 

Cooper is smooth trusty 25 and he’s already one in all the correct receivers within the NFL. In his first corpulent season with the Cowboys in 2019, he caught 79 passes for 1,189 yards and eight touchdowns. It could well presumably be a hassle for Dallas if they’ll’t be conscious him after giving up a vital-round seize for Cooper for the duration of remaining season. 

Meanwhile, the Cowboys bear unless mid-July to be conscious Prescott to a protracted-term deal. After that date, he’d be stuck on the franchise mark for 2020.

8: 04 a.m.: Sounds worship Gigantic V’s touchdown narrate will most likely be Cleveland. A crew with a want at OL and with money to utilize. Per some early projections of his salary, there used to be no skill Vaitai used to be going to be support with the Eagles as a backup. 

Popping out of the combine, #Browns figure to be selectively aggressive, nonetheless 1 rental they’ll address in free agency is their OL.

Detect them to bear passion in frail #Eagles OL Halapoulivaati Vaitai (Gigantic V), who carries gain versatility (can play LT or RT).

4: 39 a.m.: NBC Sports activities’ Peter King floated something that can presumably qualify as a vital blockbuster if it were to ever occur. He said two teams suggested him to “be conscious Houston and DeAndre Hopkins” for a imaginable alternate. That will presumably be gorgeous wild. 

Hopkins is smooth trusty 27 and is coming off his third consecutive All-Professional season. His number dipped a shrimp bit in 2019 nonetheless he smooth caught 104 passes for 1,165 yards and 7 touchdowns. He’s a mountainous participant. 

The Eagles clearly want receiver and if Hopkins is on hand, the will bear to be alive to.

However the price could presumably be if truth be told excessive.
