Eagles Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod: 'On our A-game, it's pretty much unstoppable'

Homework for Eagles during five-week break

The conclusion of Eagles minicamp marks a five-week break from the organization for Eagles players, though for most that hardly means stepping away from football.

Malcolm Gladwell says Tom Brady should retire — now

Giants S Landon Collins looks to further improve his game

Despite a season where there was chatter at the midway point about him being a legitimate MVP candidate, New York Giants safety Landon Collins thinks there is plenty of room for improvement in his game. This as his coaching staff is talking about their star safety and his unbelievable ceiling....

Ereck Flowers leaner, hopefully meaner for Giants

Things seem to be pointing in the right direction for Ereck Flowers. The much-maligned former first-round pick of the New York Giants might finally be starting to reach his full potential.   Flowers has had a tough road in his first two seasons in the NFL, the former offensive tackle out of...

The Jets' 2017 tank is on despite what they say

Jets head coach Todd Bowles says the young quarterbacks room is like being in kindergarten, valued veterans are being lopped off left and right, and players are unconvincingly trying to be optimistic about a rough season ahead.    Gang Green insists they aren’t tanking, though....

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: Don't forget about Giants D

An awful lot of time has been spent glorifying the new offensive targets that the New York Giants acquired this offseason. But a defense that came into its own at the midpoint of last season can potentially take the next step.   Or in the words of one big member of the unit, the defense and...

Which Eagles are the biggest trash talkers?

Anyone who has played a competitive team sport knows more than one trash talker. Just last week in the NBA Finals, watching the interactions of the Warriors and Cavaliers stars in between plays was nearly as entertaining as the game action itself. If you watch the Eagles on the practice field...

Big season expected of Giants WR Sterling Shepard

After a solid rookie season, Sterling Shepard will be expected to make another leap for the New York Giants in this his second year in the league.

Giants QB Eli Manning comments on offensive firepower around him

This may be the most talent the New York Giants have ever had at wide receiver and tight end, a pool of talent often ambiguously and collectively labeled as skill players.    But not only is it the best collection of skill players in franchise history, it might just be the best group of...

Eagles head coach is worried about team's maturity after camp breaks

Doug Pederson had a rough start to his career as an NFL head coach last summer. In late July, Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham was arrested for assault in a Florida hotel (he was also arrested on a gun charge during the team's bye), just days after wide receiver Nelson Agholor was accused of...

Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.'s cleats take swipe at media

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. might have been polite and approachable during the first day of minicamp on Tuesday, but his cleats told a different story.  After a busy offseason that raised questions about his commitment to the team, most recently with his skipping of...

Eagles' LeGarrette Blount 'can't really compare' Carson Wentz to Tom Brady

LeGarrette Blount got his Super Bowl ring Friday, his second as a Patriot.

Torrey Smith on Eagles wide receivers: 'obviously everyone can't make it'

Rumors swirled last week when the Chiefs cut former Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. The Birds were shown to have interest in the receiver, despite having a deep and loaded slew of wide receivers already on the roster. The Eagles, of course, didn't sign Maclin — he instead inked a...

Jets release WR Eric Decker

The New York Jets announced on Monday that they have released wide receiver Eric Decker after three years with the team.  Decker's release continues the trend of the Jets dumping contracts. Last week, they cut linebacker David Harris—who was owed $6.5 million in 2017— after 10...
