Here are some Eagles-related links to check out on this warm spring weekend.
Over the next few months, we’re putting together a Wall of Fame for those of you who have worn your Birds 24/7 t-shirts both near and far!
Brian sported his while skiing at Breckenridge resort in Colorado. Another Birds 24/7 reader wore his t-shirt to the summit of Mt. Whitney. Where have you worn yours? An opposing stadium? To the beach?
Want to be included? Simple. Send us a photo of you in your Birds 24/7 t-shirt with a short description of where it’s from. You can Tweet it to @Birds247 or e-mail the pic to email@example.com.

Here is our weekly look at what’s happening around the rest of the division.
Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News offers his thoughts on the Cowboys’ decision to add Greg Hardy:
So the next time I hear Jason Garrett talk about bringing “the right kind of guy” into the Cowboys locker room, I’m going to turn my tape recorder off. Then I’m going to politely excuse myself.
After a brief spell of trying to win the right way with high-character players — think Sean Lee, Brandon Carr and Travis Frederick — the Cowboys are now just trying to win. The arrivals of Hardy and Rolando McClain plus the return of Josh Brent are proof of that. That’s a trio I wouldn’t invite over to my house for dinner any time soon.

Here’s the second part with Tim and Sheil going back-and-forth on the Eagles’ offseason moves so far.
1. The Nick Foles-Sam Bradford trade.
Kapadia: Thumbs down.
I think some are missing the point when it comes to this deal. It’s not as simple as: Whom would you rather have at quarterback? Read more »
It looks like Chip Kelly has finally taken a moment to allow us all to catch our breath and reflect on the moves of the past couple weeks.
We’ll do this three-and-out style, going move-by-move and offering a thumbs up or a thumbs down with explanations. We’ll do three of the moves today and three more in the next installment. Read more »
Things have slowed down considerably, but with DeMarco Murray expected in town, we figured an open thread was in order.
We’ll keep this post updated throughout the day. New information will be added to the top. Read more »
Note: We have started a new thread for Sunday’s buzz.
The legal tampering period is underway. Clubs are permitted to enter into contract negotiations with the representatives of players who will become free agents on March 10. Deals cannot become official until 4 p.m. Tuesday, but there will be plenty of leaks between now and then.
The Eagles are expected to be active. They have needs at the corner, safety and outside linebacker positions, and could bring in a veteran running back after dealing LeSean McCoy to Buffalo this week. There’s also the issue of their own free agents. They have been unable to strike a deal with Jeremy Maclin and now must compete with other teams as they try to negotiate a contract extension. They have decisions to make with players like Mark Sanchez and Brandon Graham as well.
Lots to keep track of. This is the place to keep up with it all. We’ll continue to update this post with all the latest rumors and news. Read more »
