They say one should get the most out of every day. Most of us know that's a tough ask. All one can do is their best. After all, it works out in the end. Learn the art of maximization. Hammer out as much as you can, and you learn the concept of 'work/life balance'. What does that have to do with the Philadelphia Eagles? Well, we're glad you asked.

Outside of Jason Kelce rumors and discussions about Fletcher Cox and Haason Reddick's future, things have been relatively quiet on the Birds' front. Then, Philly finally gave us something to talk about on Tuesday.

Two young offensive players have been added. Who are they? Where did they come from? Again. we're glad you asked.

Eagles reportedly signs an offensive tackle, Darian Kinnard, and a tailback, Tyrion Davis-Price.

Okay, so here's what we have. Philly has reportedly signed former Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Darian Kinnard per Aaron Wilson. That isn't the Chief most wanted. We'll see what happens when L'Jarius Sneed hits free agency, but in the meantime, Kinnard is intriguing.

Fun facts about Tyrion Davis-Price

This six-foot-one, 219-pound tailback cut his teeth at LSU. Being 219 pounds doesn't lead us to believe he'll be the sledgehammer we have all craved, but like Kinnard, Davis Price is interesting.

  • He rushed for 2,500 yards and scored 29 TDs as a senior in high school
  • He was part of that mighty 2019 LSU team, some say the best NCAA team ever

Davis-Price's signing was first announced by his agency, Elite Loyalty Sports. Congratulations to both.
