    Chris Long explains why he put his arm around Malcolm Jenkins during national anthem before Eagles game

    Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins has been raising his fist during the national anthem since the beginning of the 2016 NFL regular season.

While it’s said to be a dying position, there’s always room for an elite back on any team and a particular need for a running ability with young quarterbacks. The Eagles set themselves up to get plenty of back field help for Carson Wentz in his second season. The recent release of Ryan Mathews was cold, understandable, and expected all in one. The Eagles waited until Mathews was cleared medically from neck surgery in the offseason to release him, saving around $4 million in cap space. The signing of LeGarrette Blount made this move imminent but nonetheless a reminder of the business side of
