  • Eagles' T.J. Edwards: Set for increased role?

    Edwards is eyeing an increased role on defense heading into Year 2, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

    Edwards only handled 115 defensive snaps across 16 games as a rookie. Though he officially logged four starts, he never played more than 22 snaps on defense in a single contest. If the undrafted linebacker out of Wisconsin is able to take a step forward in his development heading into the second year of his career, the Eagles could see fit to rely on him to handle an expanded interior role. At the very least, Edwards' ability to contribute on both defense and special teams should secure him a spot on the 53-man roster.

  • Eagles' Prince Tega Wanogho: Likely to have reserve role

    Wanogho (knee) is expected to compete for a depth role in training camp, Daniel Gallen of Pennlive.com reports.

    Wanogho wasn't able to participate in Auburn's Pro Day back in March while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, a development which likely contributed to him falling to the sixth round in April's draft. He showcased impressive technique and fundamentals as a three-year starter at left tackle at Auburn, despite having to compensate for underwhelming athleticism. Now healthy, the Eagles could see fit to have Wanogho (6-foot-5, 308 pounds) compete at guard rather than tackle in training camp.

  • Eagles' Hassan Ridgeway: Battling for depth role

    Ridgeway (ankle) will compete for a reserve defensive tackle job in training camp, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.

    Ridgeway appeared in seven games (five starts) with the Eagles in 2019 after having been acquired from the Colts in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick. An ankle injury ultimately caused the 25-year-old to hit injured reserve, but he'll benefit from having returned to full heath in time to compete for a depth interior gig in training camp. Having failed to reach the 10-tackle mark in back-to-back campaigns, Ridgeway doesn't warrant fantasy consideration in the majority of IDP leagues.

  • Eagles' Nate Gerry: On track for key role

    Gerry could handle defensive signal-calling duties for the Eagles in 2020, Paul Domowitch of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Gerry is the only remaining option in Philadelphia's linebacker corps who handled more than 305 defensive snaps (630) last season, per Domowitch, with Nigel Bradham having been released in February. The converted safety compiled 78 tackles in 2019 while suiting up for all 16 games despite battling a core muscle injury, an issue from which he's now fully recovered. Now heading into the fourth year of his NFL career, the 2017 fifth-round pick could be in line to step up his responsibilities on defense a notch and serve as the leader of the Eagles' linebacker corps.

  • Eagles' Rudy Ford: Heading for depth role

    Ford (abdomen) will compete for a depth role with the Eagles in training camp, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Ford notched six tackles across 10 appearances with the Eagles last season before going down with an abdominal injury. He also played a key role on special teams. Now healthy, the 25-year-old will compete to secure a similar role for 2020.

  • Eagles' Zach Ertz: Could get extension soon

    Ertz could be a candidate for a contract extension this summer, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

    The Eagles picked up Ertz's 2021 team option back in March, setting him up for cap hits around $12.5 million the next two seasons. An extension for a 29-year-old tight end wouldn't be without risk, but it likely would increase the team's flexibility in the short term. Ertz should be fine for training camp, as he said in January that it would take him about one month to recover from the cracked rib and lacerated kidney that he played through late last season.

  • Eagles' Miles Sanders: Locked in as lead back

    Coach Doug Pederson said last week that Sanders is ready to be the unquestioned leader of the Philadelphia backfield, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.

    Sanders capably filled that role late last season, averaging 15.7 carries for 71.7 yards and 4.2 catches for 34.2 yards over a six-game stretch Weeks 11-16. He then suffered an ankle sprain Week 17 and an MCL sprain in the playoff loss to Seattle, but there hasn't been any indication of either injury impacting his offseason routine. The current depth chart holds Boston Scott, Corey Clement and a trio of undrafted young players behind Sanders, albeit with the possibility of the Eagles eventually signing a veteran at the position. The team reportedly reached out to Devonta Freeman, and LeSean McCoy has mentioned having interest in a reunion with Philadelphia.
