Eagles work out former Falcons wide receiver ahead of Atlanta game
  • The Eagles brought three free agents to Philadelphia for tryouts this week http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com/darren-sproles-jersey-cheap , according to Howard Balzer. Those players include: Andrew Adams, Reggie Davis, and Dorren Miller. Adams, 25, originally signed with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2016. He started 17 games in 30 appearances over the past two seasons. During that time, Adams logged 58 tackles, seven passes defensed, one interception, and one forced fumble.Some Giants fans were surprised when Adams, who was competing for a starting safety job at the beginning of training camp this year, was released during final cuts over the weekend. I’d say the Eagles might have interest in adding Adams as a potential fourth safety but Philadelphia already traded for Deiondre’ Hall to seemingly fill that role (and replace Tre Sullivan on the roster). Adams could be a name to keep an eye on if the Eagles find themselves in need of more safety depth and he’s still available. There’s also been some unverified buzz that Adams might be joining the Eagles’ practice squad.The other two players the Eagles tried out were wide receivers. This doesn’t come as a surprise given that Alshon Jeffery and Mack Hollins are both going to miss at least tonight’s home opener against the Falcons while they recover from injury. Davis, 22, originally signed with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent in 2017. After getting waived in final cuts last year, he spent a short stint on the Browns’ roster. Then the Falcons brought him back to their practice squad and he remained with Atlanta until final cuts this past weekend.You sure can’t help but wonder if the Eagles may have picked Davis’ brain on the Falcons offense. The 24-year-old Miller measures in at 6-0, 196 pounds. He signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent earlier this year. Miller logged two receptions for 25 yards in the preseason.It’s not uncommon for the Eagles (and other teams) to hold workouts and tryouts throughout the season. It’s part of the information gathering process for the pro personnel department. While a signing(s) may not necessarily be imminent, it’s possible of these names pops up on the practice squad and/or roster down the line.NFL Power Rankings Roundup: Eagles jump back up to the top 3 With Week 3 of the NFL season in the books, it’s time look at how various media outlets have ranked the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in their NFL power rankings. It’s always interesting to see how the Eagles stack up from an outside perspective. But first, let’s start by revisiting mine.Bleeding Green Nation3 - Philadelphia Eagles - Forget the ugliness of the win, Carson Wentz is back and that’s great news for the outlook of the reigning Super Bowl champions. Philadelphia’s defensive success at home is also going to make the team tough to beat for at least eight games. (LW: 7)SB Nation4 - The Colts lost a close game to the Eagles in Carson Wentz’s return. (LW: 7)ESPN3 - The Eagles’ average field position is their own 23-yard line, which ranks 30th in the NFL. They have scored a TD or FG on 28.6 percent of their drives, which ranks 25th in the NFL Youth Corey Clement Jersey , something they ranked seventh in last season. (LW: 5)NFL.com 3 - The world champs are back up, but this time with more staying power. Carson Wentz wasn’t flawless in the Eagles’ 20-16 win over the Colts. His presence was more than felt, however, and the rest of the league should take notice. My colleague Judy Battista certainly did, embarking on a deep dive of Wentz’s first action -- and first drive -- post-knee surgery. Also remember that the almost-2017 MVP was leading an offense sans Alshon Jeffery, Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles. Look out next week, everybody. Power Rankings side note: The passing of Tommy McDonald this week is important. While there are so many fans and media covering the game who don’t acknowledge anything pre- Super Bowl era, football was indeed played before the late 1960s. As the passing side of the NFL grew in the late 1950s and early ‘60s (especially with the advent of the AFL), no player was as prolific at getting in the end zone as McDonald. The Hall of Famer scored 66 touchdowns in his first seven seasons (all of which were spent with the Eagles), despite the first four of those years featuring 12 games per season. That’s incredible. The next-closest guy over that same span didn’t even produce 50. Think about that. You know, they used to say about another Eagles receiver that “all he does is catch touchdowns.” Consider McDonald an early-day Cris Carter, but more of a vertical threat. He owned a wicked sense of humor, too. One last note here: McDonald was a bona fide star on the Philadelphia squad that won the NFL title in 1960. Yes, the Eagles were once champs before Nick Foles. (LW: 8)CBS Sports3 - They got Carson Wentz back and he was good enough to win his first start. Now with the rust off, can he build on it? (LW: 10)Pro Football Talk3 - Carson Wentz is still Carson Wentz. (LW: 5)Yahoo! Sports3 - For a first game back, that was just fine for Carson Wentz. He went 25-of-37 for 255 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He moved around well and the Eagles have to feel like it will only get better. “Overall I thought he did some nice things, extended some drives for us whether he was running escaping the pocket or making plays downfield,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said, according to Philly.com. (LW: 6)Washington Post3 - Carson Wentz’s return wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible Cheap Dallas Goedert Jersey , either. The Eagles won Sunday with Wentz back at QB and he should only get better from here.
