The Philadelphia Eagles added yet another quarterback to their roster on Tuesday, bringing the grand total to five.  That list includes Mike Vick, Nick Foles, Trent Edwards, Dennis Dixon, and now G.J. Kinne.

Erm…who?

Kinne (6-2, 234), was signed to a two-year deal with the Birds. Obviously, he’s not a big name. But he has ties to some presently with the Eagles organization.

For the second week in a row, the Philadelphia Eagles will face a team coming off of its bye and seeking to reclaim its season. The Lions have arrived in Philadelphia rested and ready to roar, and it’s up to the Eagles to quiet their bite at the Linc. Continue reading ‘Lions-Eagles Preview: Taming Detroit’s roar’

After losing center Jason Kelce for the season in their home opener against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2, the Philadelphia Eagles offense took two more hits on Friday when both King Dunlap and starting wide receiver Jeremy Maclin were ruled out of the Birds’ Week 3 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

While he overcame injury last week to play most of the Baltimore game, that will not be the case this time around for Jeremy Maclin. The wideout practiced on a limited basis on Thursday but was ruled out on Friday after no progress was seen in his recovery.
