Graham is signing a three-year contract to stay with the Eagles, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports. The 2010 first-round pick has spent his entire career in Philadelphia, playing out his rookie contract followed by a four-year, $26 million deal. While never quite dominant as a pass rusher, Graham offers a nice mixture of durability, consistency and versatility, with five straight seasons recording at least 39 tackles, four sacks and 15 appearances. He'll celebrate his 31st birthday in April and should be locked in as a starter at defensive end for the Eagles.
Graham produced three tackles (three solo), one sack and one forced fumble in the Eagles' 28-13 win over the Redskins on Monday. Graham suited up for 82 percent of defensive snaps for the Eagles on Monday and was able to notch his fourth sack of the season. The Michigan product is up to 33 tackles (25 solo) on the season and will take on the Giants in Week 14.
Graham (ankle) will only take reps in individual drills initially, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports. Graham was lifted from the PUP list early Monday, but the Eagles aren't going to rush his recovery. Being back on the field in any fashion is a favorable sign for the Eagles, however, as Graham logged a career-high 9.5 sacks and forced two fumbles in 2017. He isn't expected to play in either of the final two preseason games, and coach Doug Pederson isn't even sure if he'll be ready for Week 1. Regardless, the Eagles can absorb his absence in the short-term, considering they have depth at defensive end with Chris Long, Michael Bennett and Derek Barnett.
Graham (ankle) has been removed from the PUP list ahead of Monday's practice, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. After missing all of training camp while rehabbing from May ankle surgery, Graham apparently is ready to practice in some capacity. He'll likely be eased in over the next few weeks, as Eagles coach Doug Pederson has already admitted he isn't sure if the 30-year-old will be ready for Week 1. The team is fortunate to have solid depth behind Graham at defensive end, with the position group also including Michael Bennett, Chris Long, Derek Barnett and Josh Sweat. The likelihood of a rotation could make it hard for any of the bunch to stand out as an IDP asset.
Graham (ankle) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports. Graham toughed out his high-ankle sprain through Philly's Super Bowl win, and he underwent surgery after the season. Training camp isn't necessary for Graham's development, as he posted a career-high 9.5 sacks last season and added one in the postseason -- a strip-sack of Tom Brady that basically clinched a championship for the Eagles. Graham is confident he'll be ready to go Week 1 to kick off the final year of his contract.
