Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles liens …
Questions to consider on the Eagles and Julio Jones business front – Sports Illustrated
It looks like the San Francisco 49ers have become the favorite to land Julio Jones, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler on Saturday. The Eagles are still hiding in the shadows. A pair of sources confirmed, also on Saturday, a report earlier this week that Philadelphia is indeed sniffing around the Atlanta Falcons superstar receiver. And, if that did happen, wouldn’t it bring some extra juice to the season opener, which is in Atlanta against the Falcons?
The 5 pros and cons of trading for Julio Jones – BGN
By now you’ve all heard the phone call in which Shannon Sharpe surreptitiously made Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones admit that he wanted to leave Atlanta and be transferred to another team. As Eagles cornerback Darius Slay tries to recruit Jones from Philadelphia, general manager Howie Roseman has a decision to make. Adding a player of Jones’ caliber would almost certainly improve offense, but if they want it, it’ll likely take one of their two first-round picks next season to land him, or maybe the pick the Eagles received from the Colts, which could be a second round or a first round, depending on Carson Wentz’s performance with the Colts in ’21. Should the Eagles pull the trigger? Here are the “benefits” of doing the trick.
Other teams see Falcons’ expectations for Julio Jones trade as’ extravagant ‘- PFT
Four days away from a potentially official Julio Jones trade, the Falcons still don’t have an unofficial deal in place for Jones. Problem is, the Falcons still want too much for him. Savvy teams see the expectations as “extravagant”. The asking price continues to be a first-round pick and a full takeover by the new team of their guaranteed salary of $ 15.3 million in 2021, as well as another guaranteed salary of $ 2 million for 2022. Someone disclosed to ESPN’s Dianna Russini that the Falcons have a first-round pick on the table for Jones. As a league source said in response to this news, if anyone offered the Falcons a first-round pick for Jones, the Falcons would take him (or at least should) take him.

Garrett Gilbert is currently working as the Cowboys main backup for Dak Prescott – Blogging The Boys
The Cowboys and head coach Mike McCarthy have indicated they may be in the market for a different number two. Previously they had brought in Jeff Driskell for a visit and then they followed up with Brett Hundley. Driskell signed with the Texans, Hundley still hasn’t signed. The QB free agent market is pretty thin at the moment. Guys like Brett Hundley, Robert Griffin III, Nick Mullens, and Matt Barkley are available. The Cowboys could wait until later in the offseason when one or two veteran QBs could be excluded from other teams for various reasons. Or McCarthy might have decided that Gilbert was his best option.

New Patriots DB Jalen Mills: “I’m totally with this team” – NFL.com
“I grew up with a great group of veterans when I was drafted in Philadelphia,” said this week during team events, via Mike Dussault, of the team’s website. “They always said to me, ‘You don’t win games in April, May, June, but you lay the foundation.’ Basis is what you always come back to when you’re in these games and it’s the fourth quarter and it’s that last game to win the game. You always come back to the basics and all the hard work that you put out of season. So it has always been my state of mind to come and compete, to also enter a new team to show [owner] M. [Robert] Kraft, [head] Coach Bill [Belichick] and the coaching staff, and also the players here, that I’m very much with this team and this organization. I came to work hard.
