The list of NFL players who have protested during the national anthem is steadily growing, and Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long wants his teammates to know that he has their back.

The top moments from Thursday night’s preseason games

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

Week 2 of the NFL preseason is here, and that means slightly longer cameos from some of the game’s biggest stars. Many of the league’s top players, including Tom Brady, Cam Newton, Ben Roethlisberger, and Aaron Rodgers, stayed glued to the sideline in their respective teams’ preseason openers last week. As the season grows closer, they’ll take the opportunity to sharpen their crafts. Thursday night’s slate of games pairs some promising young quarterbacks against a handful of unsettled situations. Jay Cutler will make his Miami Dolphins debut less than two weeks after signing with the club to replace an injured Ryan Tannehill.

The difference a year makes is pretty crazy," Wentz said Tuesday. WATCH: Carson Wentz named starting quarterback for the Eagles - September 5, 2016 Last week, Wentz was perfect. Four for four. Fifty-six yards and a touchdown in his only series against Green Bay. But his teammates say it's off the field where his growth has been exponential. "To have seen him make strides, leaps and bounds, as a leader cause he knows what to expect now. Last

Nnamdi Asomugha pivots from star cornerback to star turn in soon-to-be-released film

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

For a while, Nnamdi Asomugha was one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL – a two-time first-team All Pro and three-time Pro Bowler with the Oakland Raiders, Asomugha was the premier free agent in the league in 2011, the year of the lockout. A rushed free agent period once the lockout ended saw Asomugha sign with the Philadelphia Eagles for five years, $60 million, and suddenly the intense, quiet player who just did his job and wasn’t the stereotypical crowing corner became the symbol of all of the Eagles’ ills. Remember, Philly was supposed to be the “Dream Team” in 2011, according to Michael Vick, but wound up 8-8, and because of his big contract, fingers were pointed at Asomugha.
