NFC East news: Kellen Moore doing an almost complete overhaul of Eagles playbook (2024)

Jalen Hurts says 95% of Eagles’ offense for 2024 is new - Tim McManus, ESPN

New OC Kellen Moore has certainly brought change to Philadelphia’s offense.

PHILADELPHIA — Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts said “95%” of the offense being installed this offseason is new, shedding light on the degree of change being made under offensive coordinator Kellen Moore following the team’s 1-6 slide to end 2023.

“You get to a point where you feel, I’m going to be comfortable with this, I like this, that time comes when you can rep it, rep it, rep it later on, but right now it’s been a lot of new inventory in — the majority of it, probably 95% of it being new — and so it’s just been that process, and it’s been a fun process because you get to see what works for other people,” Hurts said.

“I think the goal coming in was to learn Kellen’s offense and to master it, and I think that’s been a process, and by the end of it, I want it to be mine and have it in my own way.”

Coach Nick Sirianni and Moore, who replaced the fired Brian Johnson this offseason, had previously described the offense as a hybrid scheme that incorporates concepts from Sirianni’s and Moore’s previous systems.

It was clear during both OTA practices and the Eagles’ minicamp, which wrapped Thursday, that players are still adjusting to the new details. The timing between Hurts and his playmakers has been hit or miss, and the same can be said for quarterbacks Kenny Pickett and Tanner McKee as well.

Still, there is some excitement about what the offense will look like once the players get it down. One noticeable change is the jump in motion plays. Philadelphia was last in pre-snap motion last season.

Commanders safety Jeremy Chinn says the Steelers offered him more money - Bryan Manning, USA Today

Free agent acquisition Jeremy Chinn felt Washington was the right choice.

The Washington Commanders signed safety Jeremy Chinn to a one-year deal worth $3.95 million in March, in the early stages of free agency. Chinn, 26, played the first four years of his NFL career with the Carolina Panthers.

Chinn was viewed as the ultimate Dan Quinn chess piece for Washington’s rebuilding defense. At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Chinn is listed as a safety but can also play in the box. That versatility excited the new Commanders head coach and general manager, Adam Peters.

Chinn burst onto the scene as a rookie in 2020, finishing second in the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year voting behind Chase Young. Unfortunately for Chinn, constant turnover in Carolina and injuries stymied his growth over the past three years, making him a potential bargain for Washington.

As it turns out, the Commanders weren’t the only team interested in Chinn’s services. In an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Chinn said the Pittsburgh Steelers actually offered him more money, but thinking about who could best help his development, he chose Washington.

“I can’t remember if it was a multi-year deal, but I did get another offer,” Chinn said via Steelers Depot. “I think Pittsburgh was probably a little bit more money. But just the situation here with Dan Quinn (defensive coordinator), Joe Whitt (Jr.), and (defensive pass game coordinator (Jason Simmons) and TD (secondary coach Tom Donatell), this is where I’m supposed to be, man. I know this is where I’m supposed to be,”

Giants WR Jalin Hyatt: ‘We have a playoff team’ - Kevin Patra,

The New York wide receiver sees something special in this year’s group.

In two years under Brian Daboll, the New York Giants have gone from a surprise playoff winner to a disappointing bottom-six club. What will Year 3 bring?

Receiver Jalin Hyatt believes Big Blue is on a path back to the postseason.

“New year, new opportunities, new goals,” Hyatt said Thursday, via Giants Wire. “You know, for me, I always set high expectations. Just looking at our team, looking at what we got, we have a good chance to do whatever we want to do.

“For goals, I just want as a team goal. We have a playoff team and that’s what we want to do and that’s our focus. We’re going to get there.”

Those outside the locker room aren’t as optimistic. The Giants’ win total projections have hovered around six this offseason. Big Blue was miserable on both sides of the ball last season, with a slight blip of Tommy DeVito mania providing a buffer of levity.

With Daniel Jones returning under center, can the addition of first-round receiver Malik Nabers and a revamped defense — importing Brian Burns and a new coaching staff — immediately turn things back around?

Hyatt’s comment shouldn’t come as a surprise. What is he supposed to say? We stink and this year will be a waste? One, that’s not a mentality any professional football player can take. It’s too physical of a game. Negative mindsets get you run over. Secondly, teams regularly go from poor to the playoffs in a sport that prides itself on competitive balance.

It might surprise some if the Giants make a run at the postseason, but wilder things happen in the NFL.
