Here are some more thoughts on the move.1 - The Eagles filled a needBrown made sense as an Eagles target. Philadelphia needed more help at linebacker after losing Jordan Hicks in free agency. Brown brings plenty of experience to the table considering he has 74 career starts to his name. He also doesn’t impact their compensatory pick formula since Washington released him.Brown often caught my attention when I watched Washington’s defense. It seemed like he was always making plays. The stats back up that sentiment: in 29 games over the last two seasons, Brown has logged 153 total tackles, 22 tackles for loss, seven quarterback hits, 3.5 sacks, three passes defensed, and two forced fumbles. That’s quality production. I’m not expecting Brown, who turns 30 in October, to regain Pro Bowl form or anything but that’s fine. He just needs to at least be a solid contributor to this defense and I think he’s more than capable of doing that. Brown can handle a good amount of snaps playing next to Nigel Bradham. Signing Brown pushes the team’s other linebackers down the depth chart, which is a good thing. It’s not ideal for the Eagles to be counting on the likes of L.J. Fort Cheap Andre Dillard Jersey , Kamu Grugier-Hill, Paul Worrilow, Nathan Gerry, and/or T.J. Edwards as full-time starters. They’re more suited for rotational/backup roles. 2 - The Eagles have options at linebackerBrown has the experience and versatility to play multiple linebacker positions. It’ll be interesting to see how the Eagles line him up. Brown could get looks at MIKE but he typically hasn’t been the one calling plays in the past. The Eagles might prefer to shift Bradham from SAM to MIKE, which is a role he handled quite well after Hicks got hurt in 2017. In any case, Brown and Bradham figure to play a lot.They won’t be the only linebackers to see the field. The likes of Fort* and Grugier-Hill could be competing for playing time, especially at WILL. Both players have coverage ability. Worrilow, who is coming off an ACL injury, is versatile but ideally more of a backup. Gerry and Edwards could make their living on special teams, assuming they make the roster.There’s been some talk about how Brown isn’t great in coverage and that he’ll be more of a two-down linebacker. While I can see why that’s said, Brown’s numbers suggest he wasn’t some total liability in coverage last year. According to Pro Football Focus Andre Dillard Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys , quarterbacks had a 87.4 passer rating when targeting players covered by Brown. Only 13 linebackers allowed lower ratings than that. *One note on Fort: I’ve seen some suggest the Brown signing makes him expendable. It’s true that the Eagles could cut Fort to save a fourth-round pick compensatory pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. With that said, cutting Fort only saves $93,750 in cap space compared to $1,316,666 in dead money. It’s not like the Eagles CAN’T move on from him but I don’t think they will. The team said he was someone they actively targeted leading up to free agency. Andrew Sendejo remains the more likely cut in terms of comp pick considerations. 3 - One must wonder why Brown was availableSpeaking of PFF, Brown was their third best graded linebacker in 2018. So ... why was he cut, then? Read this from ESPN:It’s also worth noting this year isn’t the first time Brown has lingered on the free agent market. It was several weeks into the new league year before Brown left the Titans to sign with the Bills in 2016. Coming off both Pro Bowl and second-team All-Pro honors with Buffalo, Brown took about a month before signing with Washington in 2017. This year, Brown was available for just under two months despite the fact he wouldn’t count against a team’s comp pick formula.Point being: teams haven’t exactly been blowing down Brown’s door to get him... or trying to retain him once they have him. One can only wonder about the reasons why Brown has struggled to find stability in the NFL. 4 - The Eagles’ roster sure is looking goodHowie Roseman’s done a strong job of both adding and retaining talent this offseason. Philadelphia arguably has one of the best rosters in the NFL.Signing Brown filled one of the Eagles’ biggest remaining roster holes. What weaknesses remain?The Eagles could afford to add some more interior offensive line depth with Brandon Brooks coming off an Achilles injury and Stefen Wisniewski potentially leaving in free agency. Signing Ezekiel Ansah after May 7 could be a real nice move to bolster the defensive end rotation, especially if Chris Long isn’t coming back. Adding another safety (claiming Blake Countess on waivers?) wouldn’t be the worst idea.The Brown signing is a perfect example of how the Eagles are always looking to improve the roster. We can reasonably expect Roseman and co. to continue to upgrade the roster as the regular season slowly approaches.Eagles’ QB Nick Foles talks long history with Week 2 opponent Nick Foles has been named the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2, and as the team prepares to face Tampa Bay Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys Stitched , the quarterback looked back at his long history with the organization. From winning his first NFL game against the Bucs years ago, to almost signing with them during last year’s free agency, Foles and Tampa Bay go way back.The quarterback spoke to the media on Wednesday after practice about how he and the team are preparing for their Week 2 matchup.On getting back into a rhythmThe quarterback has never been shy to talk about how much getting into a rhythm is important to his overall production, and heading into Week 2, he’s starting to simmer down and get back into the swing of things.“I think the big thing was getting back into the season and playing a full game,” Foles noted. He said football isn’t an easy sport, and so he continues to grind and build a relationship with his receivers, but he feels good and feels good about practice so far this week.Foles wouldn’t talk about when he learned that he would be starting against Tampa Bay — or whether it’s a week-to-week decision — and the quarterback said that was information he was going to keep in house. He also said “we’re really close” about having that on-field chemistry with Mike Wallace. The QB lamented you can’t so much focus on him not having any catches in Week 1, because they know “he’s a dynamic player” and they just have to work harder to get the ball in his hands.Foles continued to talk about how successful offenses in the NFL spread the ball around, and to do that he just has to make the reads. On Buccaneers prepFoles talked about how good the Atlanta team was last week, and how well the two teams match up against each other — even pointing out that after the game he went up to the defensive players and coordinators to tell them how good of a fight they put up.He said Tampa Bay is obviously a different type of defense schematically Andre Dillard Jersey Color Rush , but they are also fast and talented.Foles said you want to start making big gains and having some explosive plays, but you can’t force them, especially against a team that can make you pay for bad decisions. He said he gets to the read and makes plays based on the coverage he sees.He talked about how the Falcons showed a little more two-deep in Week 1, limiting his ability to connect with Zach Ertz, but the QB noted that’s kind of what you expect in the first week of the regular season. Foles pointed out that while they did some different looks, it is still up to the Eagles’ offense to find more opportunities for the tight end.On him not signing with the BucsFoles admitted, “it was close” about the decision to maybe sign with Tampa Bay during free agency last year. He talked about how his wife was pregnant at the time, so while he was trying to make a business decision, he was also making a decision for the future of his family.He said it was additionally difficult because of the long relationship he had with caoch Dirk Koetter, but ultimately they had called Philly home once before and they loved it, the people and the city Cheap Andre Dillard Jersey , and thought what better place to bring their daughter into the world.A reporter then quipped about how it seemed to work out for the QB, who nodded as his grin grew wide, followed by a series of chuckles.Foles said he didn’t pay too much attention to Tampa Bay last year to see what could have been, and that once he decided to sign with the Eagles, he was focused on the team and being a new Dad.On his first career win against TampaThe quarterback’s first ever NFL win — and only win his rookie season — was against the Buccaneers back in 2012. Foles said he remembers going back and sitting in his locker after the game, thinking about how difficult it really is to play in the NFL.He noted that the whole season was difficult, being Andy Reid’s last year with the team and everything else that was happening around the organization, and that the win was much needed. Foles talked about watching the film from that game and seeing the team celebrated like they won the Super Bowl — it was an important win.On the ‘Philly Philly’ statueFoles admits he hasn’t seen the Bud Light statue in person, but has seen pictures. He said it’s a representation of the Eagles team and everything that went with it. That moment represents the team’s boldness throughout the course of the year — it was a bold play call and that’s how they played in 2017 and how they hope to play in 2018.
