Carson Wentz. (USA Today Sports)
New Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz got himself stuck in a New Jersey bathroom yesterday.
Wentz, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, tweeted about the situation last night.
It garnered close to 4,000 retweets, over 6,000 likes and many, many amusing replies. No follow-up tweets from Wentz yet on what bathroom he got locked in, but thank goodness for the attendants and “the other guy w/ the leg kick.”
Curious about the garden shears? So is everyone else.

Prominent Philadelphia defense attorney Fortunato “Fred” Perri, Jr. has rebuffed an allegation that Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor sexually assaulted a dancer at Cheerleaders Gentlemen’s Club.
“Nelson has not engaged in any criminal conduct,” wrote Perri, who is representing Agholor, in an email late Friday afternoon. “We’re confident that he will not be charged with a crime.”
Earlier today, Philadelphia magazine reported that a 27-year-old woman told police she was raped by Agholor inside the South Philadelphia club about 3 p.m. on Thursday. She filed a complaint later that night. Read more »

This is a developing story and will be updated accordingly.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor has been accused of raping a dancer at Cheerleaders Gentlemen’s Club, law enforcement sources have told Philadelphia magazine.
A 27-year-old dancer told police that she was raped inside the club, which is located on Front Street near Oregon Avenue in South Philadelphia, about 3 p.m. on Thursday.
Two other Eagles — defensive end Connor Barwin and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox — visited Cheerleaders with Agholor, the sources said. The club is just a few minutes away from the team’s NovaCare complex, where they wrapped up their last spring practice early Thursday afternoon. Read more »

Sam Bradford officially came back to the Philadelphia Eagles a couple of days back when he faced the music of a prying media on the subject of his two-week holdout. And it was a painful comeback.
Bradford came off as a man resigned to the fact that he is not long for the team, saying he’d have to be “pretty naïve” to think he was in the long-range plans of the Eagles, now that they have drafted Carson Wentz.
In other words, Bradford is going to attempt to play this season as a lame duck quarterback, a man who must preserve himself from injury through a long NFL season in order to have another team interested in his services at the end of this year. That should engender a lot of confidence in him from this cryptic fan base, which will notice every yard Bradford does not put his body on the line for out of fear that he’ll get clocked. Read more »

The Sam Bradford Issue hangs over the Philadelphia Eagles like a turkey buzzard. As much as the Eagles try to ignore it, it squawks and flies from tree to tree, peering down at the Nova Care center, waiting for a dead carcass.
The dead man walking is Bradford himself, the self-deposed quarterback who is living somewhere in Oklahoma, hoping the Eagles do the right thing and somehow trade him to the Denver Broncos. Read more »

Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford has been acting kind of like an attention-starved child who just got a new baby brother ever since the team acquired the second overall pick in last week’s NFL Draft. Now, rookie quarterback Carson Wentz has become Philly’s beacon of hope, and Bradford wants out.
Big Q BBQ in Levittown is cooking up an ode to what observers predict will be Bradford’s fairly imminent departure: the Sam Bradford sandwich. Chef Drew Abbruzzese chose each ingredient as commentary on Bradford’s trade demands and subpar play. Read more »

Sam Bradford is a crybaby.
Sam Bradford is a weakling who is afraid of competition.
Sam Bradford doesn’t have the resume to dare pull off a holdout.
Sam Bradford is absolutely right.
Ignore the first three sentences of this column and focus on sentence number four. Sam Bradford was done a dirty deed by the Philadelphia Eagles and his only alternative is to demand a trade somewhere, anywhere else.
Now I’m not blaming the Eagles for making two savvy moves to move up in the NFL draft, to get to number two, to take North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz. It was something they had to do to get a franchise quarterback into their system, a kid who could play the position for the next 10 years. But when they did that, they should have also been fostering a trade at the same time for Bradford, who then became a total lame duck. Read more »
The Eagles selected Carson Wentz with the second overall pick in the NFL Draft last night, and Birds 24/7 has exhaustive analysis. (We even sent Josh Panuil to Bismark, North Dakota!)
But how did Wentz’s first trip to Philadelphia as a member of the Eagles go? Well …
The scene: Wentz arrives at PHL Airport earlier this afternoon. A pack of reporters was there to greet him, including CBS 3 Sports Director Don Bell, who broadcast the above video live on Facebook. Also in attendance were a few Eagles fans, who immediately went up to the 23-year-old Eagles QB of the future and asked him for an autograph.
Then things got, um, silly. Read more »
