East Rumors: Eagles, Tebow, Mariota

Of the seven new players that the Eagles acquired this offseason, only DeMarco Murray played 16 games last season. The Eagles are taking advantage of spotty injury records to get the most value on his acquisitions, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes. “We don’t want to bring in injured players, but I think the players that are available, there has to be a reason,” Kelly said. “Some guys are available because it’s a money reason and you don’t have the cap room or you’re not willing to go that high for that individual player, and some players are available because there was an injury.” Here’s more out of the East divisions..

  • If the Eagles trade quarterback Matt Barkley, Dianna Marie Russini of NBC 4 (via Twitter) hears that there’s an “80% chance” they’ll sign Tim Tebow to replace him. Chip Kelly & Co. auditioned Tebow on Monday. The Eagles have let teams in need of a quarterback know that Barkley is available, Russini adds (link). It helps that Barkley and Kelly have the same agent, she adds.
  • No one is buying talk that Washington is looking to take Marcus Mariota at No. 5, Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports tweets. The belief is that Washington is looking to stimulate a trade ahead of their No. 5 pick, pushing their desired player down.
  • If the Dolphins match Charles Clay‘s offer sheet from the Bills, they almost have to give Ryan Tannehill an extension before the start of the 2016 league year, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald tweets.
