Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis said DEs Trent Cole and Brandon Graham have done well in their transitions to outside linebacker. Cole and Graham have also received reps at defensive end during organized team activities.

Philadelphia Eagles OLB Connor Barwin will probably play three downs next year and has looked comfortable in practices so far. Trent Cole, however, doesn't look like a cozy fit in the team's new 3-4 defense. He won't be asked to drop back much but must learn to consistently set the edge, and the transition may be difficult. Brandon Graham is also a pass-rushing specialist, but Bill Davis' hybrid scheme probably fits him a little better for sack production.
Fantasy Tip: While Barwin might have sneaky value if used properly, Cole and Graham have falling value in IDP leagues; this is a reminder that scheme can hide or remove a player's potential.

Philadelphia Eagles DE Brandon Graham said he has not been told what position he will play next season but is working on losing weight and is preparing to be an outside linebacker. Graham currently weighs 270 pounds and wants to get down to 260 pounds. Graham has been working out with Pittsburgh Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley this offseason to help his transition.

Philadelphia Eagles DE Brandon Graham said expects to switch to outside linebacker next season. He said he played at 270 to 275 pounds this season but is looking to get down to around 260 pounds so he can move better in space.

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said he believes DT Antonio Dixon, DE Brandon Graham and DE Trent Cole can fit well in a 3-4 defensive alignment. He said Dixon has the perfect skill set to be a nose tackle while Graham and Cole can line up as outside linebackers.

Philadelphia Eagles DE Trent Cole will be on the roster next season, and he's guaranteed $5.1 million in 2013. DL Vinny Curry will be back also, but DLs Darryl Tapp, Cullen Jenkins, Mike Patterson and Derek Landri aren't locks to play for Philly next season. As a result, the development of first-rounders DLs Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox is vital. Graham has four sacks and seven hurries in three games since the team released DE Jason Babin. Cox has 4 1/2 sacks in his last six games after becoming a starter Oct. 28.

Philadelphia Eagles DE Brandon Graham was working with the first-team defense during the media-access portion of practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.

Philadelphia Eagles DE Jason Babin saw a reduction in playing time in Week 8, giving way to DE Brandon Graham and DT Cullen Jenkins at left defensive end. Babin, who has just 2.5 sacks this season, said the benching was a poor motivational ploy. "To me, I have intrinsic motivation," Babin said. "External environmental activity is not going to affect my drive, my desire, my effort, how I go about my business. It's not going to make me play harder ... I'm going to bring my 'A' game every day. If that's what coach wants to do, it's his decision. He's the boss. We're struggling as a whole defensive line to get sacks, he's just trying to figure out a way."
