Eagles News: Patrick Queen among remaining potential roster additions

Let’s get to Philadelphia Eagles left…

Eagles summer shopping guide: Free agents and trade targets to fill roster holes – The Athletic
Possible trade target: Patrick Queen is the popular option here after Baltimore Ravens signed Roquan Smith to a long-term extension and used a third-round pick on Clemson’s Trenton Simpson. Queen is entering the final year of his rookie deal after the Ravens declined his fifth-year option this offseason. He’s been somewhat underwhelming relative to his draft pedigree (No. 28 overall in 2020) through three seasons, but he’s never missed a game and turns 24 in August.

2. Patrick Queen. The Ravens have found themselves in quite an interesting predicament at the inside linebacker position. After a bumpy start to the former first-rounder’s career, the Queen’s game rose to new heights during the 2022 season. Despite this, the organization declined to pick up Queen’s fifth-year option this offseason, meaning 2024 will be the final season of his rookie contract. One big issue stands in the way of Queen getting a long-term extension to stay in Baltimore if he has another outstanding season. It’s the fact that the Ravens traded for and signed linebacker Roquan Smith to the highest contract in NFL history at the position. It’s really unfortunate timing for Queen. But as he follows up last season’s breakout performance with an equal or better one in 2023, he’ll be a very rich man next season, whether in Baltimore or elsewhere.

BGN open thread: What did you do this weekend? – BGN
Slow news day? More like a slow news month as we wait for Philadelphia Eagles training camp to begin. Players will report to the NovaCare Complex one month from yesterday. Their first full training session is one month from today. That’s pretty much all there is to say about the birds right now. So let’s shift our focus to an off-topic discussion: what did you do this weekend?

10 reasons the Giants will be a dumpster fire this season – PhillyVoice
According to the NFL’s NextGen Statistics, Jones was the most conservative quarterback in the NFL in “Intended Average Air Yards”, with 6.3 yards through the air per carry. throws and “air yards to the sticks.” On average, his passes landed 2.8 yards from the first down marker. The Giants’ offense didn’t hit big plays in the passing game in 2022. They had 28 passes of 20+ yards, fewest in the NFL. The league average was 49. The Giants’ lack of quality receivers certainly played a role in their ultra-conservative passing game, but there’s no question that Jones’ ball security improvements weren’t as impressive as the numbers suggest, since you know he rarely tried to push the ball down the track. But good luck with all that, Giants fans.

The Rise of Hurts – Iggles Blitz
The passing part was complicated. Hurts posted good numbers at OU, but played in the Air Raid. That offense can be read more easily. At Bama, Hurts played in more of a pro system but was an inconsistent passer. That’s why he lost the QB job to Tua Tagovailoa. Hurts improved as a passer at OU, schedule aside. He made a good impression on intermediate and downfield throws. He showed solid arm strength. As simple as this sounds, I thought he looked more confident and comfortable. Lincoln Riley is a great offensive coach and he brought out the best in Hurts. The Eagles saw enough to believe Hurts was worth taking a chance on.

Surprise offseason for 32 NFL teams: Players to watch – ESPN
LB Christian Elliss. The third-year player from Idaho made several highlights this spring, including intercepting Jalen Hurts and returning it for a touchdown during 7-on-7 drills on the final day of OTAs. After losing both starting linebackers in free agency this offseason, it would be a welcome development for the Eagles if Elliss can contribute along with current projected starters Nakobe Dean and Nicholas Morrow.

JALEN CARTER. The draft: Round 1, No. 9 overall. My guess is that memories of Carter being drafted outside the top five will begin to fade as the Georgia product makes an immediate impact between the lines in Year 1. Depending on the call, he could rotate with veteran Fletcher Cox and 2022 first round pick Jordan Davis, who comes onto the field in a hurry to wreak havoc.

Spadaro: How the Eagles revamped the DT position – PE.com
Build from the lines. That’s the way the Philadelphia Eagles do business, and as the team entered late into the 2022 season and it became apparent that the year could end in Super Bowl LVII, leaving little time to prepare for 2023, went into high gear going forward: What would the defensive tackle position look like if, as expected, Javon Hargrave became one of the most sought-after players on the free agent market that was set to open in mid-March? Of course, the Eagles have long invested in their defensive line, and 2022 was no exception. The personnel department, led by Howie Roseman, looks at the roster in a year-long window and with that in mind, directed some valuable resources into the defensive tackle position last season. The Eagles used their first round pick in NFL Draft on Georgia’s Jordan Davis, re-signed veteran standout Fletcher Cox, and midway through the season added veterans Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh to the mix. Defensive tackle was again a position of strength.

Assigning blame for every one of Dak Prescott’s interceptions from the 2022 season – Blogging The Boys
But it’s also worth noting that Dak himself struggled at times down the stretch. Four of his last six picks in the regular season fell squarely on his shoulders. Does that mean he is prone to error? Absolutely not, but it does mean he’s not completely freed from the giveaway mess the Cowboys got themselves out of last year.

Better or worse? Giants’ cornerbacks – Big Blue View
The Giants are no worse at cornerback than they were last season. Last year at this time, the Giants were banking heavily on Aaron Robinson’s success. If the Giants now get anything positive from Robinson, it’s a cherry on top of a delicious sundae. Final Thoughts: The Giants improved their cornerback cap space from last season, and there’s little — if any — debate. There could be some debate as to whether this cornerback space — in this system — is better than the 4-13 2021 Giants with Jackson, Bradberry, Jarren Williams and Holmes. If it were me, I’d sign up for the youth movement and the upside of Deonte Banks and Company.

Report: New York Jets Prepare to Be on Hard Knocks; Washington could be a possibility in the season – Hogs Haven
Aaron Rodgers in New York looks like a safe bet. but Florio added a few options for Washington to appear on the show. NFL owners will meet on July 20 to vote on the sale of the Washington Commanders. The transfer of power from Dan Snyder to Josh Harris starts when training camp opens the following week. Florio adds that the NFL would prefer to have Washington as the option of the season.

DeAndre Hopkins’ free agency has 1 front-runner and 2 sleepers heading into NFL training camp – SB Nation
The most obvious landing spot right now is Cleveland. I absolutely understand the mutual interest in coaching that exists in New England, but this has been the team that has made the most sense all along. They have the money to pay Hopkins decently in year one and the team that can go deepest in the playoffs. None of these three teams can really be ruled out, but there’s a very good chance that all this fluttering from D-Hop to New England is a chess move designed to push Brown to get off the bum and make a deal.

The Outsports Power 100 honors the most powerful and influential LGBTQ people in sports – Outsports
When we started compiling a list of the most powerful and influential LGBTQ people in sports, we figured we’d be lucky to get a top 40. As we researched, the goal became a top 50. So as soon as we hit 50, we faced a dilemma: we had to stop at 100 people and leave some deserving names off the list. In the end, we came up with about 250 LGBTQ people of power and influence in every sport in the United States—athletes, coaches, administrators, journalists, referees, managers, and even team owners—for a list we whittled down to 100. Introducing Outsports Power 100.
