* Geoff Mosher reported that the Eagles are going to tender Max Jean-Gilles at the level he was drafted in, the 4th round. Mosher seems to not understand this move. He talks about how it means that Max will be back. Maybe.
Teams who tender guys at a low level like that are actually sending a sign that they don't feel strongly about the player. The Eagles would love for some team to sign Max and give us a 4th round pick in return. Heck, I bet we'd be willing to trade him for a 5th.
* Mosher also said that TE Alex Smith wasn't tendered. I thought Alex did a good job for us this year. He blocked well. He played some on STs. He only caught 3 passes, but wasn't used much as a receiver.
We have Cornelius Ingram in place. He's coming off an ACL tear, but that was back in August. He should be ready to go by this summer. We also have Martin Rucker. Adam Caplan recently reported that the Eagles are pretty high on him. Interesting. We've got a young trio of players that all know how to catch the ball. Let's hope we go find a guy with size and blocking potential to bring in as a UDFA.
* Leonard Weaver's agent has been saying good things. He says there are ongoing negotiations between him and the Eagles. Keep your fingers crossed. We need Weaver back.
* I've got some Combine notes posted over on ScoutsNotebook. They are general notes and not Eagles-specific. Lots of good stuff so far. I'm behind with some writing projects so I'll have to leave it like that for now. One funny note. The NFL Network cut to a shot of Big Red while he was watching RB Toby Gerhart run. Andy had a big grin. Gerhart is a 231-pound power runner, but he's got good feet, ran well today, and also showed good hands as a receiver. I've doubted the Eagles would seriously consider him, but who knows.
