The Eagles made a big commitment to center Jason Kelce when they gave him a six-year, $37.5 million contract extension. The dollars and years were an obvious factor in keeping Kelce in Philadelphia, but it wasn’t the only reason. The coach, and the front office, have impressed Kelce as well.
On the heels of Jason Peters’ new contract, the Eagles have reached new deals with two other members of the 2013 team.
Furthermore, two of the Eagles top receivers, Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin, are free agents set to hit the open market. A controversial topic over the past couples months has been, which receiver should the Eagles re-sign? However, it looks like the Eagles may be able to keep both players in midnight green.
His beard was trimmed. His hair was pulled back. Jason Kelce wore a serious look as a bowl of hot wings was placed in front of him in the cafeteria of the NovaCare Complex Tuesday afternoon.
Kelce told the 94WIP Morning Show on Tuesday that he’ll eat wings at Wing Bowl 22, January 31st at the Wells Fargo Center.
Through it all, through those sloping gorges, the Eagles survived—and it seems—even thrived from those situations. It’s been that ability to rebound from adversity that’s been one of the stubborn staples in the success story of the 2013 Eagles.
If 203 victories, 2 Cy Young Awards and over 2,000 strike-outs aren’t enough for entrance into the Hall of Fame, I’m not sure what is.
The Eagles announced Tuesday that Kelce is the team’s Ed Block Courage Award winner.
The biggest story in the NFL this week has nothing to do with what happens on the field. Instead, the biggest story, the alleged bullying situation that occurred with Rich Incognito and Jonathan Martin and the Miami Dolphins, has stolen the headlines.
Aaron Rodgers is not only one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, he is likely one of the top five players in the NFL. So when Rodgers went down with a fractured collarbone on Monday night, it obviously had an impact on this Sunday’s game against the Eagles.
Michael Vick announced on Thurday, while standing next to Nick Foles, that he would not be playing in Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. Vick says that while he heals from a hamstring injury, the team is in good hands with Foles.
Jason Kelce knows what this game means to the Eagles, and he thinks they’re going to win it.
The Eagles made many mistakes in Thursday night’s loss to the Chiefs, from just about every position on the field. A few of those mistakes seemed to come from center Jason Kelce, who was involved in a few bad snaps, one of them resulting in a fumble and loss of possession.
Whether he’s in the pocket or on the move, Michael Vick keeps taking hits.
The Eagles placed corner back Brandon Hughes on the short-term injured reserve list with a hamstring injury. To fill his vacant roster spot the Eagles added Roc Carmichael. As for the rest of the team, players appear to be ready to go for the third game of the season against former Eagles head coach Andy Reid.
