Eagles release 2017 4th-round pick Donnel Pumphrey
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Running back Donnel Pumphrey was among the players released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.
Pumphrey was a fourth-round pick in 2017 after becoming the all-time NCAA rushing leader at San Diego State. He spent his rookie season on injured reserve because of a hamstring injury and missed the first three preseason games this year because of injuries. Pumphrey could return on the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Patriots enjoy big Super Bowl experience edge over Eagles
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — The Eagles are playing some of their best football heading into Sunday's Super Bowl matchup with the Patriots.
One thing Philadelphia can't contend with is New England's huge experience advantage in the big game.
On the 53-man active roster the Patriots brought to Minnesota, 32 players have a combined 60 games of Super Bowl experience.
Tom Brady alone has been to the Super Bowl seven times during his 18-year career, winning five.
Backups help resilient Eagles overcome major injuries
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Using a cane to walk on his surgically repaired left knee, Carson Wentz celebrated a victory with his teammates that many thought the Philadelphia Eagles couldn't secure without him.
Wentz led them to a division title. Nick Foles is taking them to the Super Bowl.
Despite injury, Chris Maragos remains a leader on Eagles
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Minutes after doctors told Chris Maragos he needed season-ending knee surgery, the Philadelphia Eagles' special teams captain got a phone call that his wife was going into labor.
"I literally got the best news and worst news within 15 minutes," Maragos said.
NFL’s all-injury team can rival All-Pro squad
The NFL's all-injury team may be better than the All-Pro team this season.
Aaron Rodgers behind center. David Johnson and Dalvin Cook in the backfield. Odell Beckham Jr., Julian Edelman and Brandon Marshall at wide receiver. Greg Olsen and Tyler Eifert split tight end reps. Joe Thomas and Jason Peters anchor the offensive line.
Then there's Deshaun Watson, Carson Palmer, Sam Bradford and Ryan Tannehill. Derek Carr and Jameis Winston have also missed a few games.
Eagles lose Jason Peters, Jordan Hicks for the season
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Staying on top became a little tougher for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters and starting linebacker Jordan Hicks will miss the rest of the season after being injured in Monday's 34-24 win over Washington.
Peters tore his right ACL and MCL and Hicks ruptured his right Achilles tendon. Those are two big losses for the NFL-leading Eagles (6-1).
"Both of them are obviously significant," coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday. "They will be missed."
The best signings in free agency are usually unheralded players.
Quarterbacks and skill position players get the most money. High-profile defensive guys get plenty of attention. Special teams players fly under the radar but can make the most impact.
Fashion Touchdown scores funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters
With help from iconic fashion designer Nicole Miller and 13 Philadelphia Eagles, the law firm of Zarwin Baum DeVito Kaplan Schaer Toddy P.C. was able to raise $130,000 in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region at its third annual Fashion Touchdown event.

Special teams stars make case as NFL again tweaks kickoffs
OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Chris Maragos can't imagine an NFL without kickoffs.
The Philadelphia special teams ace admits to sounding like a lobbyist when he said he never feels safer during a play that the league keeps altering in an effort to reduce high-speed collisions, backed by statistics that show most injuries occur on kickoffs.
With competition committee member Stephen Jones of the Dallas Cowboys suggesting that safety is more important than players making a...
