The Eagles have pinpointed a new offensive coordinator.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported Tuesday that in-house assistant Mike Groh has been chosen to fill the void left by Frank Reich, according to a source with knowledge of the team’s plans. Reich departed last week to become head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.

Garafolo was told that play-calling duties will remain with Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, who opted to promote Groh — formerly the team’s receivers aide — over running backs coach Duce Staley.

Groh has served as an NFL assistant since 2013 after spending a decade-plus at the collegiate level. He operated as Virginia’s offensive coordinator from 2006 to 2008 before stops with Alabama and Louisville. Groh also worked for the Bears and Rams before joining the Eagles jerseys last offseason.

Philadelphia lost both Reich and talented quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo in the wake of the team’s Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots.

Philadelphia Eagles: Nick Foles

Jeffery played through the injury all season after hurting his right shoulder during training camp.

Toiling through the pain, the 28-year-old pass-catcher started all 16 games and finished with 57 catches for 789 yards and a team-leading nine touchdowns. Jeffery was especially effective in the playoffs, meshing with quarterback Nick Foles elite jersey for 12 receptions and a trio of scores over three starts — capped by the wideout’s beautiful 34-yard touchdown grab in Super Bowl LII.

After signing a one-year deal with the team last offseason, Jeffery was rewarded in December with a four-year, $52 million extension packed with $27 million in guaranteed loot.

While the Eagles piled up a handful of hurries and got in Brady’s grill, the game nearly came and went without either team youth Carson Wentz jersey recording a quarterback takedown. Philly’s rough-and-tumble defense came through, however, at arguably the most critical time in franchise history.

“We knew that Tom Brady jersey was going to try to take us out of the game, but we knew we were going to have an opportunity in there where he was going to have to hold the ball,” Graham explained. “We just kept working and kept working, not getting frustrated and talking to each other, telling each other: ‘Hey, we gotta keep coming. Don’t get frustrated. We’re going to make a play and we’re going to win this cheap jerseys thing.”

On a day where both defenses waited all day to make a difference, Graham’s heroism came just in time.

“We weren’t pointing no fingers,” Graham said of an Eagles team that remained unfazed by the fever-dream onslaught of yardage and points. “We just said, ‘Hey, whoever makes the first stop, that’s who’s going to win the┬ádiscount nfl jerseys china game.'”

For the world-champion Eagles, a prophetic rallying cry, indeed.

Adrian Peterson to visit New Orleans Saints next week

Second-year receiver Michael Thomas is questionable to play against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday after being added to the report Saturday with a hamstring injury.

Aside from Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, Thomas is New Orleans’ most indispensable offensive weapon. Thomas is only the second receiver to start his career with back-to-back seasons of 90-plus receptions and 1,000-plus yards (Odell Beckham). He’s also a Falcons killer. Thomas has averged at least seven receptions, 70 receiving yards and a TD in three career games against Atalnta.

The former second-round pick played four seasons with the Denver Broncos and two with the Los Angeles Chargers. Franklin started all 16 games for the Chargers in 2016, but became expendable after Los Angeles drafted two guards in the draft. The Bolts cut Franklin in May.

The short stint doesn’t look good for him but a team to be on the watch for is the Jets. Before signing with New Orleans, Franklin took a visit with Gang Green.

Peterson visited Seattle early in free agency, only to see the Seahawks sign Eddie Lacy instead. His meeting with New England came and went without a contract, while the Patriots remain interested in re-signing LeGarrette Blount.

SiriusXM NFL Radio reported earlier this week that three to five teams are interested in Peterson, who has not set a price nor has he turned down an offer. The seven-time Pro Bowler has made it clear that he’s willing to remain patient in hopes of finding the perfect fit entering his age-32 season.

Cue the Debbie Downers, uh, we mean overzealous Saints fans pointing out how this kind of behavior is why the Saints have finished 7-9 — and missed the playoffs — for three consecutive seasons.

Everyone needs a break for a bit of fun sometimes. Even members of your favorite football team. Instead of sweating at organized team activities, the Saints were on the move in a scavenger hunt throughout New Orleans this morning.

In their seemingly yearly effort to rebuild a woebegone defense, adding Butler would give the Saints a rising star at corner, allowing them to select for need during this year’s draft, which is loaded at pass rusher — another big priority for the Saints.

Butler wants to be paid like the star corner he’s become since making his famous game-winning play in Super Bowl XLIX. After the Patriots shelled out big money to cornerback Stephon Gilmore at the start of free agency, it’s seemed Butler’s ticket to getting paid is leaving New England.

A playmaker on the back end, Vaccaro is a do-everything defensive back who was a starter right off the bat for New Orleans. He’ll play this season on his fifth-year option, a one-year guaranteed contract worth $5.7 million.

On one hand, for a defense that struggled mightily last week with youth and inconsistency, it seems odd to shop one of its best players. On the other hand, contract talks this past offseason did not prove fruitful and he’s a pending free agent for 2018. Talent has not been a question, but there has been some inconsistency.
