If Eagles standout offensive tackle Lane Johnson wrote a bombastic column for the players blog website theplayerstribune.com to divert people away from talking about his 10-game suspension last year for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing drugs, it backfired. If he wrote it to stir the pot and get Eagles fans and his teammates […]

It’s tough enough being a free agent trying to latch on with a NFL team. It is even tougher if you are switching your position. Taylor Hart, who was drafted as a defensive tackle by the Eagles in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Oregon, was running out of options to […]

KYLE FRIEND WANTS TO BE ANOTHER NFL SURVIVOR

Friend was deemed too short for major college football coming out of Mechanicsburg (PA) High School in 2011 where he was a two-time first team All-State lineman. But he was generously listed at 6-foot-2 and no D-1 schools came calling except Temple.
Friend proved the big schools wrong by becoming a four-year starter for the Owls and the face of head coach Matt Rhule’s program turnaround from doormat to national relevance.
Friend is hoping to find a home in Pittsburgh with the Steelers and prove all the teams that passed on him were wrong.
