Business Decision Coming For Jake Scott

Jake Scott is a football player. And as he demonstrated earlier this offseason, he is also a businessman.

Scott reportedly turned down several offers this offseason because the price wasn’t right. His streak of 121 straight starts went up in smoke, and the 31-year-old was without a team for more than half the year before ultimately signing a one-year deal with the Eagles. After all that, he’s on the verge of hitting free agency again.

Scott’s Play Keeps Watkins On Sideline

Jake Scott doesn’t have some dramatic tale to tell about how he spent time preparing for his return to the NFL.

“Worked out four times a week at Vanderbilt,” Scott said. “Stay in shape. Do what I needed to do to be ready.”

OL Review: Scott Still In For Watkins

It’s probably too little, too late, but the Eagles’ offensive line turned in one of its best performances of the season Sunday night against the Cowboys.

Sure, it helped that Dallas was without Jay Ratliff, Sean Lee and Bruce Carter, but the offense scored points on six of 10 offensive possessions. Nick Foles was sacked just once and had a comfortable pocket for most of the game. On the ground, the Eagles averaged 7.0 yards per carry, which help neutralize DeMarcus Ware. The Eagles often ran play-fakes right at Ware to slow him down.

Below is the player-by-player breakdown.

With Watkins Questionable, Scott Could Be Plugged In

Philadelphia Eagles right guard Danny Watkins.Offensive lineman Jake Scott was signed by the Eagles on Monday. He could see action less than a week later.

Danny Watkins (ankle) practiced all week but is officially questionable for Sunday’s game in Washington.

“Well, what you end up getting with the [high-ankle sprain], you get tweaks in there and it hinders your lateral mobility,” said Andy Reid. “I was proud of him for getting out here and going through what he did. He did a nice job with it. He’s making progress and we’ll just see how he does here over the next couple days.”
