Fantasy owners must practice patience with Marcus Smith


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) The selection of Marcus Smith left a lot of people scratching their heads, but the reality is that the Eagles were bowled over with his film and wanted to add another pass rusher to the mix. The plan in Philadelphia is to make him their outside linebacker and have him attack the quarterback, a position Smith himself used to play. Eagles coach Chip Kelly sees "huge upside" in Smith.

Odds are Smith will spend much of this season working in a rotation with Connor Barwin and Trent Cole . But the time will come soon enough where he'll bump one of them off the roster -- potentially Cole since he's older and makes a bunch of money.

Fantasy owners will have to be patient in waiting for Smith to see every-down work, and it won't be until then when he'll have some numbers -- not great numbers -- because outside linebackers typically need a ton of sacks and other stats to supplement their weak (by comparison) tackle totals. Smith should be a good mid-round pick in rookie-only drafts and a late-round choice in dynasty/keeper leagues but he's not worth taking in a standard seasonal format.


Trent Cole aims to build off hot finish


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) Eagles outside linebacker Trent Cole registered all eight of his sacks in the second half of the 2013 season. It took him a while to adjust to the 3-4 scheme. 

Cole enters his 10th year with the Eagles looking for his fifth season with double-digit sacks.

“From Day 1, Trent has just played with great effort,” coach Chip Kelly told the Philadelphia Daily News. "Sometimes the numbers didn't show because he didn't have a sack total, or whatever. But the pressure he got from Game 1 to now, through Game 15, sometimes it starts to come. He was so close in a lot of games, but I think what you see out of Trent is that he just gives you that effort, and he just plays so hard.”


Eagles' probables ready to roll


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Six Eagles who were probable on the injury report are active at Dallas: cornerback Brandon Boykin (hip), linebacker Trent Cole (hand), offensive tackle Lane Johnson (back), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee), guard Evan Mathis (illness) and safety Kurt Coleman (hamstring).

Six Eagles ruled probable Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Eagles CB Brandon Boykin, LB Trent Cole, S Kurt Coleman, OL Lane Johnson, LB Mychal Kendricks and OL Evan Mathis are probable Week 17.

All but Mathis practiced in full each day this week. Mathis did not practice Thursday, but returned in full by Friday. 


Eagles DST scores late to cap great night


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2013) The Eagles DST got a pick-6 in the fourth quarter when corner Brandon Boykin returned a Jay Cutler interception 54 yards. The touchdown highlighted one of the unit's top performances all year.

Playing with a lead the entire night, Philly held the potent Bears attack to 257 total yards and got five sacks and two takeaways. Linebacker Trent Cole had three sacks, linebacker Mychal Kendricks two. Cornerback Cary Williams recovered Devin Hester's fumble on a first-quarter kickoff return.

The Eagles DST heads to Dallas in Week 17 with momentum.


Trent Cole has two sacks in Week 13


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Eagles linebacker Trent Cole recorded two sacks in Sunday's 24-21 victory over the Cardinals. Cole now has four over his last two games and five in his last four. 

The Eagles play the Lions in Week 14.


Trent Cole avoids concussion in big game


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) Eagles defensive lineman Trent Cole left briefly Week 11 against the Redskins to be tested for a concussion but was able to return and finish the game.

"Oh, yeah. I just got my brain switched around a little bit," he said of his collision with teammate Patrick Chung, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Even with the time he missed, Cole had a big performance, recording two sacks on three tackles. He entered the game with only one sack all season.


Eagles get after the QB


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2013) The Eagles sacked Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith five times in Week 3, in a 26-16 loss. Three of those sacks came from a trio of specialists, as linebackers Vinny Curry and Brandon Graham, as well as defensive lineman Trent Cole each picked up a sack as their lone tackles of the game.

Trent Cole has chip on shoulder


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/26/2013) Eagles defensive end Trent Cole has a chip on his shoulder coming into this season, reports phillynews.com.

"They'll have to drag me out of this facility, but I'm not going to fail," Cole said. "I'm going to give them no reason to have to get rid of me or anything like that. I'm going to do everything I have to do to make things work."

Cole struggled in 2012 with just three sacks and was not the pass-rushing threat the Eagles had expected.

"I told myself, I'll never forget that season, and I won't forget it after my career," Cole said. "I'll keep that with me. Some people say you're supposed to let it go, it's in the past. But having a season like that, it's going to drive me and motivate me this season."

He changed his body during the offseason, knowing he'll need to play more linebacker in the Eagles' defemse. He's expecting to weigh in at 263 pounds, which he said is around 11 pounds lighter than last year. 


Cole: Bad year won't happen again


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/18/2013) Eagles defender Trent Cole told PhillyMag.com that he played last year with a broken bone and torn tendons in his right hand. He had surgery for it during the offseason and should be fine for the start of training camp. As for where Cole will play in 2013, that's still up for debate. The pass rusher has been a lineman but could move to linebacker in Chip Kelly's new 3-4 scheme. He's lost 10 pounds and has been dropping into coverage, something he didn't do a lot of as a lineman. "We don’t know where we’re going to be at right now," said Cole.

Report: Cole undergoes hand surgery


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/8/2013) USA Today reports Eagles defensive end Trent Cole had surgery on his hand that "wasn't major" but could keep him out of offseason workouts. Cole allegedly dealt with the issue for over a year.
