Impending free-agent DT Bennie Logan is likely to find a better deal from someone other than the Philadelphia Eagles next month, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman. The Eagles have already handed out expensive second contracts to fellow defensive linemen Fletcher Cox, Vinny Curry, Brandon Graham and Connor Barwin.

Several teams have expressed interest in trading for Philadelphia Eagles LB Connor Barwin, according to multiple sources. He has two years remaining on his current contract and is slated to make $7.75 million in 2017, with a salary cap hit of $8.35 million.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Trey Burton is likely to remain with the club entering the 2017 season. He is a restricted free agent that Philadelphia values for both his growing presence in the offense and ongoing role as one of the team's best special-teams players. Additionally, he's "developed a close bond" with QB Carson Wentz. The Eagles have the option to keep him by giving him a tender, which Burton is "likely" to play on and be a restricted free agent next offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Burton somewhat surprised this past year in his third NFL campaign, accumulating 37 catches for 327 yards and a score, after registering only three receptions in his first two seasons combined. Burton flashed some notable potential on some weeks, but as long as Zach Ertz remains ahead of him on the depth chart, it would be very tough to try and trust him regularly.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek is likely to remain with the team going into the 2017 season. The Eagles like his contributions on the field and around the facility, plus his durability. He'll count $5 million against the cap, but Philadelphia would only save $1 million by releasing him.
Fantasy Tip: Celek's best days are far behind him, as the 32-year-old is coming off a campaign in which he registered the fewest receptions (14) and receiving yards (155 yards) of his 10-year career. Oh, and it was also his first season without scoring a single touchdown. Celek would need an injury or two above him on the depth chart to even merit consideration for a roster spot.

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR DeSean Jackson's potential return to the Philadelphia Eagles is talked about as a "certainty" by several teams, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson can be a little too dependent on big plays at times, and regardless of where he plays in 2017, he should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward WR3.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is about to become a free agent and it would make a lot of sense that he's linked to Philadelphia, who desperately need to add a big-time receiver for rising young quarterback Carson Wentz. The five-year veteran endured his most disappointing campaign since his rookie season, marred by a four-game PED-related suspension, but could be an outstanding buy-low candidate across all leagues if he were to end up an Eagle. Jeffery is still capable of at least providing WR2 value.

The Philadelphia Eagles have approached OT Jason Peters about taking a pay cut. He is scheduled to make a base salary of $10.45 million in 2017 and carries a cap number of $11.7 million, the highest on the team.

Fantasy Tip: Wentz closed his rookie year on a high note, and while he can't be expected to reach QB1 status yet, he is one of the more intriguing prospect in keeper formats and a QB2 in redraft leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Stills had a 42-726-9 line in what was a really good season. Entering his fifth year, he's just going to be 25 years old, and there could be more in the tank. He's more valuable in non-PPR leagues because he has averaged just 41 catches in four years, and he's on the WR3/WR4 apex in most formats.

Fantasy Tip: Mathews' season was cut short with a neck injury, and it could threaten his career. His fantasy forecast is pretty cloudy for 2017.
