While there are several reasons to be critical of the Philadelphia Eagles vice president/general manager, Howie Roseman, (it’s not like he doesn’t give us plenty of ammunition), one thing he can never be accused of lacking is drive. You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone that works harder than Howie.

Sure, some of the draft picks have been questionable, especially at the wide receiver position, but no one works the phones, waiver wire, etc harder than Roseman does. He’s constantly doing all that he can to tweak Philly’s roster. Maybe he just needs to hire someone with a better eye for talent though.

Oh well… That’s another story for another day. Let’s talk about something more relevant to what’s going on with this team currently.

The Eagles do their due diligence in light of recent COVID-19 concerns.

Perhaps seeing the stadiums packed again and the knowledge of a vaccine led us all to believe that we could relax more than we actually should have. Sure it’s better to see the raw emotion of a packed house than listen to artificial crowd noise, but we still have a responsibility to take care of one another by doing all that we can to be safe. We have to do our due diligence.

Speaking of due diligence, in light of a recent rash of COVID-19 diagnoses around the league, including a few recent cases on the Eagles’ own roster and coaching staff, Philadelphia is doing theirs.

Two placekickers, former Boise State Bronco Tyler Rausa and former Ohio State Buckeye Blake Haubeil worked out at the NovaCare Complex ahead of the Eagles’ Week 16 game versus the New York Giants.

Neither player was signed, and there’s no need to panic. There’s been no word of any illness or injury with Jake Elliott. This, again, appears to be the Eagles’ attempt to ensure they have contingency plans should anything happen.
