Lane Johnson tries to explains suspension
by Larry Hartstein |

Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson issued this statement about his four-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug: "In April while training, I mistakenly and foolishly put a prescribed medication in my body to help with a medical issue," Johnson began.

"I mistakenly failed to clear it with Eagles trainers and check the NFL list of banned substances. I am extremely sorry for this mistake and I will learn from it and be smarter in the future."

LeSean imagining the possibilities with Darren Sproles
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Running back LeSean McCoy is thrilled to have Darren Sproles join him on the Eagles offense this season. McCoy told The Rich Eisen Podcast that the addition of Sproles should mean huge things for how defenses play against Philly

"Sproles has the quickest feet I've ever seen out of any player," McCoy said. "He'll help us out tremendously. I think the best thing about him, what he brings to this team is not only leadership and experience, but also just another big playmaker on the team. You talk about losing DeSean (Jackson), but I think Howie (Roseman) and Chip (Kelly) did a great job of bringing another playmaker to our team. ... With me and him in the backfield together it will definitely cause an issue with the defense."

Jordan Matthews' buzz continues to grow
by Larry Hartstein |

Eagles rookie receiver Jordan Matthews has good size at 6-3, 210 pounds to go along with "sneaky speed," reports The Star-Ledger. The second-round pick won praise from receivers coach Bob Bicknell during minicamp and OTAs and "showed the great hands that allowed him to catch 112 passes his senior year in college," the paper said.

"You guys are seeing the same things we are," Bicknell told the paper. "He’s looked very good so far."

A scout for an NFC team said Matthews could step in and possibly start. As it stands now, he projects as the No. 3 receiver behind Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper.

Jeremy Maclin faster now than before injury?
by Larry Hartstein |

Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin said that in some ways, he feels faster now than before he tore his ACL, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.

"In some ways I feel more fresh, more physically strong," he said. "I just think you put so much hard work into your rehab process that that's kind of what happens. You get that leg back. You build that leg back stronger. So like I said, I'm really looking forward to this year."
