One more day until signings can become official.

You know the drill. We’ll keep this post updated with the latest Eagles-related buzz all day, with the newest information at the top.

Click here if you missed any of the updates from Sunday.

8:21: Another Gore update. Sounds like he’s headed to Indy:

7:17: Not so fast on Frank Gore.

Kind of bizarre. We’ll have more on this soon. 4:06: Nice scoopage from T-Mac (this is Sheil; Tim isn’t writing in the third person):

So the Eagles have filled their OLB need. 3:39: One of the best corners in the game is about to hit the market:

3:26 pm: We interrupt our current programming for a Marcus Mariota note:

2:55 pm: A possible NFC East suitor for Nate Allen?

2:35 pm: A Brandon Graham update:

Here’s what we’re hearing: The Eagles and Graham’s camp have remained in contact. The “vibe” that Graham’s side was picking up earlier today was that Chip Kelly was not all that hot for him, though it’s possible something was lost in translation during the negotiating process. The Giants, we’re told, are in aggressive pursuit. 1:38 pm: How about this for a tease by’s Gil Brandt:

Who do you think he’s talking about? 1:28 pm: A little cornerback news:

Sheil did an excellent post explaining why House would be a fir with the Eagles. 11:38 am: Derrick Gunn with the latest on Brandon Graham:

A Jason Pierre-Paul-Graham tandem in New York would be a bit surreal. Earlier, the Bears reportedly inked OLB Pernell McPhee to a five-year, $40 million deal with $16 million guaranteed. The market is set, and we should see some movement soon when it comes to Graham, Jason Worilds, etc. 10:59 am: Another safety name to consider:

10:50 am: Geoff Mosher provides a secondary update:

10:43 am: Details of Jeremy Maclin‘s deal with the Chiefs are beginning to emerge:

9:22: Adam Schefter checks in on the Colin Kaepernick trade rumors:

7:59 am: Yesterday, there was a rumor about the Giants showing interest in Brandon Graham. Today, another team:

7:43 am: The reporter who had the Byron Maxwell news Sunday says the Eagles are one of two teams that has talked to the 49ers about a potential Colin Kaepernick trade.


49ers GM Trent Baalke issued a statement, saying the report was “ridiculous” and that Kaepernick is not going anywhere.

Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News believes, however, that there could be truth to the rumor:

Again, we will need to more about this, but just generally, the big question: Why would the 49ers, at such a crucial juncture, possibly want to move on to another QB?

I can see Baalke and new coach Jim Tomsula theoretically wanting…

1) A QB not picked by Harbaugh;

2) A QB who wasn’t trained by Harbaugh and who might not still be loyal to Harbaugh;

3) A QB not set to have a $16-19M cap figure into the deep future;

4) A QB who they believe can be shaped into their system, whatever it is.

We’ll see if this one goes anywhere.
