▪️“He is actively, actively interested in trying to play in the NFL,” Mark Geragos, the attorney for Colin Kaepernick, told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday. “Absolutely.” ▪️The NFL season is only two weeks old and already we’re seeing the same, tired story: A quarterback gets hurt, putting the season in jeopardy. In the case of Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, maybe even the Super Bowl. Rather than call Kaepernick, however, a general manager dives into the trash heap of re-treads. ▪️Sure, the Saints, Pittsburgh Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets COULD turn to a quarterback who took the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl. Add the Carolina Panthers to this group, too, given the alarming news Tuesday morning that Cam Newton has aggravated a foot injury. ▪️But no, owners and general managers will instead stubbornly entrust their franchises to a Brock Osweiler, a David Fales or a Josh McCown. In New York, they’re one hit away from Le’Veon Bell throwing passes. ▪️Because options like that have worked so well in the past. ▪️Spiteful and stupid is no way to go through an NFL season, especially when fans are told time and again that teams/owners/general managers will do whatever it takes to win.
No doubt there are some owners who won’t sign Kaepernick because they’re livid that he dared to shine a spotlight on police brutality of people of color, and the endemic racism in our society that is behind it. History will have the final word on that small-minded and hateful way of thinking.
There are some, though, who are of the misguided notion that having Kaepernick on their roster would alienate fans. But the response to Nike making Kaepernick the centerpiece of a marketing campaign last year is instructive.
Looking at the vibe of the city since I’ve left Philly for work, I’m coming back to the city Thursday to bring back that “PHILLY PHILLY” spirit! We need it, and I’m willing to make that 10+ hour drive to get the job done! I need to hit the official reset button on this franchise and I know exactly where it is. In “That” Eagles Fan we trust! I can’t wait to be back home 💚🦅
According to ESPN’s Tim McManus, the Eagles have been doing their homework on Jacksonville Jaguars superstar cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Ramsey requested a trade after the team’s Week 2 loss to the Houston Texans and after Ramsey’s sideline altercation with Head Coach Doug Marrone. McManus added that the Eagles did their homework on Minkah Fitzpatrick before he was sent to the Pittsburgh Steelers last night. ——————————————————— #Eagles#FlyEaglesFly#EaglesEmpire #EaglesNation#Philadelphia#Philly

#DeSeanJackson has an abdominal strain that is expected to sideline him for about two weeks, according to sources. Jackson is not expected to play this Sunday vs Detroit and most likely not against Green Bay the following Thursday. The #Eagles play 2 games in the next 9 days. Bad timing for the injury to Jackson.

With the Eagles having reported interest in Minkah Fitzpatrick you have to think they’ll have interest in CB Jalen Ramsey. With the Eagles not having a #1 CB Ramsey would fill a huge void for this defense. Also recall when Ramsey released his QB hit piece trashing QBs he only had praise for Wentz. If the Eagles aquire Ramsey you have to think they are favorites to come out of the NFC. This is one that I could definitely see happening if the price is right. #eagles#eaglesnation#nfl#football#gobirds#flyeaglesfly
