  • The Eagles thought enough of him as an edge pass rusher to spend a first on his athleticism (6'3", 251lbs, 4.6 40, >10' broad jump, 35" vertical). The knocks against him were primarily that he didn't have a plan B when speed failed and he had a ways to go against the run.

    Regardless, he earned his $1m with us last year and they liked what they saw enough to bring him back. I'll bet we will be happy about it if he earns the full $2.7m.

  • I was just thinking of him this morning. Glad he is back. We need pass rush not sure how much we get from the draft.

  • I'm happy to see this player re-upped.
    He flashed at times laast season and needs better coaching to improve, he has physical talent. With luck and great DLine gap discipline the D will be stronger this season up front if some further Dline help shows up.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

  • I did a cutup for Marcus Smith back in week 12 when he had 30 snaps on defense. Most of his action came in passing situations early at 5/7 tech. He played some 3 tech mostly in the second half and 1 tech at the end in garbage time after Jefferson went down.

  • Good deal!! We needed him back badly. With little draft capital this year, and not a deep position in the draft. Hope he can come on like Clemons did for us.

  • There were some who thought Marcus Smith flashed and then faded a bit last year. Perhaps his latest tweet sheds a little light on that perspective............
