Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …
Eagles sign Jaquiski Tartt to one-year deal
Tartt was one of my favorite players to watch over the past few seasons. The former 2015 second-round pick struggled to stay healthy, but there was no doubt he made a difference when he was on the pitch. Simply put, the 49ers didn’t give up big plays, or anything, really, when Tartt played. There’s so much more to playing defensive back than interceptions that Tartt will never get his due. He makes the plays that don’t show up in the box score and does much of the dirty work that has made the Niners’ defense so successful in recent seasons. I hope everyone knows Tartt going to Philadelphia means he’s going to stay healthy, probably start making some turnovers and become a Pro Bowler. That’s usually how these things work – in both cases, wishing Tartt the best and healthiest rest of his career.
The Eagles signed a safety! – BGN
Asked about the Eagles’ safety position previously, Roseman said the team is higher in this room than the outsiders. But clearly not to the point where he was ready to stop looking for help. While not a home run signing by any means, it makes sense for the Eagles to add more competition to an unstable position. Tartt brings experience to the table with 64 starts in 80 games played for the 49ers after being the 46th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He hasn’t exactly been a playmaker with just 18 passes defended, four interceptions and two forced fumbles to his name. Durability has also been an issue considering he never played a full season and was only available for 50 of San Fran’s last 81 regular season games.

Eagles Player Review: Le’Raven Clark Edition – PhillyVoice
Clark has some guard/tackle versatility, but I like him better as a guard because I wouldn’t want him playing on the edge against someone with speed. Given this major gap in his game, I wouldn’t feel comfortable trading Dillard at a discount on the assumption that Clark can do such a good job in a backup tackle role. I think he showed enough positives that he kicked the team out of training camp as a substitute lineman.
Ten best new veteran QB-WR combos ahead of 2022 NFL season – NFL.com
Brown’s presence will make life easier for Hurts, who is entering a pivotal season trying to prove he is the long-term solution under centre. Hurts displayed dual-threat ability in 2021, his first season as a full-time starter, but he missed too many shots, generating an 87.2 passer rating. Brown’s ability to win in tight spaces and generate yards after the catch adds a dimension to offense that was missing last season. According to Pro Football Focus, Brown has averaged 6.0 yards after the catch since 2019 – second among WRs, behind only Deebo Samuel (minimum 150 receptions). Getting those extra yards will make the whole operation smoother and make Hurts more dangerous when he decides to use his legs. Just like Tua, Hurts needs a good season. Brown and Smith’s pairing up the passing game to make Philadelphia one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL if everyone stays healthy.
Jerry Jones deviated again when asked to put Jimmy Johnson in the Ring of Honor – Blogging The Boys
It has been a year. And even then, we were still two decades behind. Invariably, Jerry will take another opportunity in the near future (perhaps at the opening ceremonies at Oxnard) to reignite that flame and once again proclaim that Jimmy Johnson will enter his team’s Ring of Honor. Enough with the stop words. It’s time for a real answer here.
Ron Rivera fined $100,000 and Washington COs lose two 2023 OTA workouts due to excessive contact – Hogs Haven
Washington commanders will lose two OTA 2023 workouts for excessive contact during training exercises. Head coach Ron Rivera will also be fined $100,000. The Dallas Cowboys have lost just one practice in 2023 and head coach Mike McCarthy was also fined $100,000 yesterday.
PFF: WR Kadarius Toney is one of 10 sophomores under pressure in 2022 – Big Blue View
Is Kadarius Toney under pressure to keep his job this season? Yes, it probably is. Before we even get to building the Giants roster as a whole, it’s worth remembering that the property has wiped the slate clean of the front office and coaching staff. There are very few players on this list that the new regime has any investment in. It could mean that everyone on the list is fighting for their job. Monson points out that the Giants selected a very similar player in this year’s draft. Wan’Dale Robinson had a college career very similar to Toney’s. Both started out as gimmicky players who weren’t real receivers. They both moved around the offensive formation and were manipulated with touches on sweeps, bubble screens, throws and various “trick game” concepts. They both played much more of a “receiver” role during their senior seasons before going to Reese’s Senior Bowl. Both players are undersized (Robinson more so than Toney) and base their game on quick stops and starts.
Jaguars won’t hold traditional mandatory minicamp, give vets time off – Big Cat Country
The Jacksonville Jaguars won’t be business as usual as they contemplate the looming five-week break between offseason activities and training camp in July. Instead of a typical mandatory three-day minicamp for the team and its veterans, Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson announced Thursday that most team veterans would have those three days off, essentially , they finished for the offseason. Pederson said he made the decision about the last week or so. “I still have the mandatory minicamp, three mandatory days, but I only do rookies, select veterans and our injured players,” Pederson said in an opening statement Thursday.
Adam Sandler’s ‘Hustle’ is one of the best basketball movies of all time
These are the kinds of films I hope Sandler will continue with. It’s an easier watch than 2019’s Uncut Gems, but shows the comedian is at his best when he’s toning things down. It’s clear that everyone involved in this project has been invested in telling a good basketball story, and that’s what makes it thrive over something like Home Team, which tried so hard to be a comedy that she lost all semblance of humor. Let’s face it: Sandler’s Netflix movie series has been mostly awful, but Hustle is absolutely worth spending some time and watching. It’s fun, it’s heartfelt, the basketball scenes are awesome, and it’s a breath of fresh air.
