Philadelphia Eagles news, rumors and injuries

Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles could be an option for the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason because head coach Doug Pederson drafted them when they were both with Philadelphia and is interested in Foles, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: Foles finished the season as a backup after being the starting quarterback back for most of the season. Foles did not have a lot of success when he did play in 2015 and probably would not be more than a backup option in most fantasy leagues if he won a starting job.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford probably will hit free agency this offseason and should have a chance to find a starting job with a team. Bradford played well at times this season but probably would be a backup option in most fantasy leagues next season.

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is guaranteed $7 million in 2016, and the Eagles would take a $13 million salary cap hit if they were to release him before June 1, which makes Murray unlikely to be cut. Murray would likely have to take a pay cut to be traded.
Fantasy Tip: A tumultuous season in 2015 under Chip Kelly made Murray a huge first-round fantasy disappointment. He's likely to share touches with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles again, so don't expect anything more than low-end RB2 numbers under a new coaching staff, to boot.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson listed finding a "young quarterback" as one of the steps necessary for team to have success, which could mean QB Sam Bradford is not in the team's plans moving forward.
Fantasy Tip: It continues to sound like Bradford could be on the way out of Philadelphia, and if he leaves, it is possible that the Eagles will draft a quarterback early in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he is committed to the Eagles despite rumors that there may be dissension between Murray and Philadelphia and despite a tweet by Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant telling Murray to return to the Cowboys.
Fantasy Tip: Much can be made of nothing when it comes to the NFL offseason, and perhaps this is one of those cases. If Murray does indeed stay with the Eagles, he'll still be splitting touches with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles, but he could also see more success under new head coach Doug Pederson and in a less complicated offensive system.

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray could be courted by the Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders or Dallas Cowboys if he does not return to the Eagles next season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Those three teams were interested in Murray last offseason before he signed with the Eagles.
Fantasy Tip: Murray was a big disappointment in his first season with the Eagles last year. Philadelphia has more than a capable backfield aside from Murray in Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles. It's too early to say what Murray's fantasy value will be in 2016, but it's looking more and more likely that he won't be an Eagle.

The Philadelphia Eagles and RB DeMarco Murray appear to be at odds regarding his future with the organization. The division is based on Murray's disappointing 2015 season, the team's conviction he is the long-term answer at running back and the huge five-year, $40 million contract he signed last offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Murray ran for only 702 yards and six touchdowns last season, which obviously isn't a good return for a player averaging $8 million a year. The Eagles have a very capable reserve in Ryan Mathews, so rookie head coach Doug Pederson and the new front office could decide to part ways with Murray this offseason. If Murray remains in Philly, his fantasy ceiling will likely be as a low-end RB2 sharing carries with Mathews.

If Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford does not return in 2016, the Eagles could use a high draft pick on the position and look for a quarterback in free agency to help bridge the gap until that rookie is capable of starting, in the opinion of PhillyVoice.com's Jimmy Kempski.
Fantasy Tip: There's a lot that needs to play out this offseason in regards to the Eagles' quarterback situation. The Eagles may choose to start with a clean slate at quarterback, but if Sam Bradford doesn't return then they would almost certainly sign a free-agent quarterback and/or draft a quarterback.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford has a good chance of not returning to Philadelphia next season, according to Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com. Kempski said he would lean heavily towards Bradford not being re-signed.
Fantasy Tip: The needle seems to be pointing toward Bradford leaving the city of brotherly love this year. There are still a few months for that to come to fruition, but Mark Sanchez would be the next man up as far as their current depth chart stands, although, they would likely draft and/or sign a quarterback as Kempski alluded to.

Philadelphia Eagles OT Lane Johnson said he thinks the team would benefit from re-signing QB Sam Bradford. "I definitely want him to say," Johnson said. "If you look at the last part of the year, Sam was doing really well. Completing a lot of passes and getting comfortable. Him staying here, him being familiar with the players, I think that would really help us out."
Fantasy Tip: If Bradford returns to the Eagles in 2016, consider him a high-end QB2 in season-long formats and a potential starting option in daily formats against friendly matchups.
