Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Can settle in as full-time slot target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews will primarily operate from the slot, with free-agent acquisitions Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith lining up outside, reports.

The 2014 second-round selection has mostly worked from the slot to this point in his career, but he's also taken some snaps outside -- where he's far less effective -- due to the lack of surrounding talent in Philadelphia's offense. Matthews can now settle in as a full-time slot man, free to focus on what he does best. However, the offseason additions do add significant competition for targets in an offense that also features TE Zach Ertz as a crucial component of the passing game. Entering the final season of his rookie contract, Matthews is in real danger of drawing fewer than 100 targets for the first time in his career.

Eagles' Wendell Smallwood: Could benefit from Mathews' expected departure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Ryan Mathews (neck) likely to be released, Smallwood (knee) and Darren Sproles will be left as the leaders of the Philadelphia backfield, CSN Philadelphia reports.

The Eagles are expected to release Mathews once he can pass a physical, which could be a matter of weeks or months. Smallwood and Sproles both figure to have roles next season, but the team likely also hopes to acquire a bigger back to replace Mathews -- be it through free agency or the draft. Smallwood had 77 carries for 312 yards (4.1 YPC) and a touchdown in 13 games as a rookie, adding six catches for 55 yards on 12 targets. He missed the final three weeks of the year with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, but the issue should clear up before the start of OTAs, if it hasn't healed already. Smallwood's 2017 outlook largely will depend on Philadelphia's other transactions in the coming months.

Eagles' Zach Ertz: Restructures contract with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ertz has agreed to a restructured payment of his 2017 base salary, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

Ertz's restructure creates over $2.5 million in cap space for the Eagles this offseason and guarantees him more money in the immediate future. In 14 games last season, Ertz totaled a career-high 78 catches for 816 yards and four touchdowns.

Eagles' Chase Daniel: Asks Eagles for release
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniel has requested to be released by the Eagles, Kimberley A. Martin of Newsday reports.

Daniel's decision comes after the Eagles brought back quarterback Nick Foles on a two-year contract Monday. With Carson Wentz clearly Philadelphia's long-term answer at the position, Foles' presence further blocks Daniel's path to playing time, which he's now seeking elsewhere. While Daniel's future reportedly has been subject to speculation "for weeks", his career 78 passing attempts across seven seasons still leaves question over his value.

Eagles' Dorial Green-Beckham: Faces difficult path to playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green-Beckham will have to compete for playing time in a receiving corps that now includes free-agent signings Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, reports.

The Eagles' offseason moves suggest the team has little to no faith in Green-Beckham and Nelson Agholor, both of whom were incredibly inefficient with their limited targets last season. With Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Matthews and Torrey Smith likely to serve as the top three wideouts, Green-Beckham could find himself on the roster bubble.
