Eagles | Stallworth ready to assume No. 1 role

Tue, 29 Aug 2006 17:30:26 -0700

Dan Gelston, of the Associated Press, reports Philadelphia Eagles WR Donte' Stallworth is excited about being in Philadelphia and ready to take on the team's No.1 wide receiver role. He believes a change of scenery could be exactly what he needs to fulfill his potential as the 13th overall pick in the 2002 draft. "I can help the team win games, if that's catching deep balls down the field or catching short passes and making long runs down the field, I can do it," he said after practice Tuesday, Aug. 29. Stallworth joins a crowded receiving corps that includes promising second-year WR Reggie Brown, WR Todd Pinkston, rookie WRs Hank Baskett and Jason Avant, and veteran WRs Greg Lewis, Darnerian McCants and Jabar Gaffney. The Eagles likely will carry six wideouts, so the coaching staff faces some tough decisions before final cuts must be made by Saturday, Sept. 2.

Eagles | Pinkston faces uncertain future

Thu, 17 Aug 2006 05:42:42 -0700

Reuben Frank, of phillyburbs.com, reports Philadelphia Eagles WR Todd Pinkston (Achilles') is facing an uncertain future with the team. Pinkston was told that head coach Andy Reid was discouraged by Pinkston's lack of progress with his Achilles' injury. "If he said that, he said that. I'm not discouraged. I'm all right, I'm all right. No big deal," said Pinkston. Pinkston is no longer improving and his future with the Eagles is now in doubt. If Pinkston is not making progress now, with opening day 3 1/2 weeks away, there is no way the Eagles can count on him to be ready for the start of the season. The Eagles' could carry him on the 53-man roster or place him on Injured Reserve and end his season for a second straight year. Or they could release him with an injury payment.
