Hope everyone is having a great weekend. For those in need of a quick fix, let’s take a spin around the NFC East to see what’s going on with the rest of the division:
Here’s the latest from around the web on the Eagles’ NFC East division rivals.
Eric Edholm of Yahoo! Sports believes the Cowboys will go with UCLA linebacker Myles Jack at pick No. 4.
Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli had Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs toward the ends of their careers in Chicago, and he again would have a do-it-all weapon in Jack who can pair with Sean Lee to give the Cowboys two of the best coverage linebackers in the game. Jack also can blitz when asked to do so.

Since the Eagles fired Chip Kelly, rumors have swirled and reports have circulated about his replacement. To keep all of the information we’ve gathered organized in one place, we created the master list below.

“I sent him a text, I said, ‘Make sure you put me down as a reference,'” Rodgers said.
“I thought having a guy who played the position was right for me at that point,” he continued. “But I told [McAdoo] this yesterday, ultimately I need and have always needed a guy who gets me prepared every week, that can give me the opportunities to reach my potential. Ben did that every day the last two seasons for me and the other quarterbacks in the room.”
With ESPN’s Adam Schefter saying Wednesday that he senses McAdoo is a front-runner for the Eagles’ head coaching job, it felt like the right time to delve into the Homer City, Pa., native’s background and find out what makes him a potential fit.
Adam Schefter isn’t so sure that Doug Pederson is the favorite to land the Eagles head coaching gig. In his mind, Ben McAdoo is.
