KGH Logo

LJ (@ljharrell54) and Connor (@connorten) are back to breakdown the Kelly Green Hour projected 2021 offensive depth chart. We talk what can a healthy offensive line look like and who will win the LT battle. Do the Eagles keep five or six wide receivers? The Eagles have quantity at the RB position, but who makes the most sense in a Nick Sirianni offense?

The guys also talk about the recent memo from the NFL league office about Covid vaccines and potential forfeiture. We also address the Green Bay situation with Aaron Rodgers and Devante Adams. Should Howie pick up the phone?

LJ (@ljharrell54) and Connor (@connorten) are back after a couple quiet weeks in Eagles country.

Rejoice! Kelly Green Can Return...But When?

EaglesPicture: Via @Eagles/Twitter

Uni geeks such as I rejoiced when it was announced that the NFL would eliminate the “one shell” rule allowing for the return of alternate helmets and throwback uniforms.  Images of Bucco Bruce, Pat the Patriot, and the beloved Kelly green Eagles set danced through my mind like a kid thinking of what Santa is bringing to the house on Christmas morning. But unbridled joy was quickly squashed like a finding out your parents were really Santa.

According to Pro Football Talk, NFL teams can use an alternate helmet now that the “one shell” rule has been changed however the “notice date” for teams to make uniform changes for the 2022 season has passed.  Teams will be allowed to wear an alternate helmet color, but they won’t be able to have a complete new set of uniforms for the season. 

Major bummer. So, what does this mean for the Eagles?

Eagles add Quarterback Depth

By Connor Donald, Sports Talk Philly Contributing Writer

Former 49ers Quarterback Nick Mullens and the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to terms on a one year contract. The deal comes four days after the Eagles waived undrafted free agent quarterback Jamie Newman after an underwhelming camp.

 

Adam Caplan of Fox Sports/Sirus XM had reported the Eagles were interested in bringing in a third quarterback after the Newman release and mentioned Nick Mullens as a name to watch. The Eagles were looking for a west-coast style quarterback in their search.

 

Nick Mullens comes over from San Francisco where he was acquired as an undrafted quarterback in 2018. He went on to start 16 games and appeared in 19 total, mostly in relief of oft-injured Jimmy Garoppolo.

 

In 19 games he ended up completing 64.5% of passes for 4714 yards and a 25:22 touchdown to interception ratio. He averaged 248.1 yards per game. 

 

Last season, he led the 49ers to a 2-6 record as injuries plagued their roster on both sides of the ball including starting quarterback Jimmy Garroppolo. He finished the year with a 64.7% completion percentage for 2437 passing yards and a 12:12 touchdown to interception ratio before injuring his elbow on December 20 against the Dallas Cowboys and requiring surgery.

 

Mullens joins as the third quarterback behind presumptive starter Jalen Hurts and veteran backup Joe Flacco. He will likely be a camp body, unless the Eagles opt to keep three quarterbacks on roster, which wouldn't be surprising given the state of the quarterback room in prior seasons.


Richard Rodgers Returns, Eagles Add Michael Walker

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

The Eagles have officially brought back the tight end who put up 345 yards for the team last year.

\

That of course would be Richard Rodgers, who was the second-most effective pass catcher at the tight end position for the Eagles in 2021 behind Dallas Goedert.

Rodgers will now be looking to enter what would be his fourth season with the team.

Rodgers, in his first three seasons in Philadelphia, has landed on the IR twice, signed a two-year contract and spent a training camp with Washington in 2020.

He figures to be the favorite for the third tight end spot and would likely slot in as the backup to Goedert if Zach Ertz is traded.
