He joined NFL Insider Adam Schefter to talk about his new opportunity, why he made the move, and a few other Eagles tidbits. On how his family felt about being “uprooted” and having to move, he told Schefter:Douglas was also asked to reflect a little bit on his time with the Ravens, Bears and, of course Alshon Jeffery Jersey , the Eagles, and specifically what he learned from guys like Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman.Schefter went on to joke that given the right amount of money, Howie would be willing to trade one of his kids. And while Douglas wouldn’t go that far, he did elaborate on Roseman being a family-first kind of guy.Douglas later mentioned that he prepared for his interview with the Jets by watching a lot of game tape in order to be able to discuss some of the intricacies of the team. He did note that the film study came after he spoke with Howie Roseman about the opportunity.The new General Manager admitted that the whole situation is pretty surreal and he’s been doing a lot more talking than he’s used to — which also includes opening up to Albert Breer at Sports Illustrated as well.And while he’s excited for the opportunity, it wasn’t that easy for him to make the decision to leave this Philly team, according to Albert Breer:When talking to Breer http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-lane-johnson-jersey , he echoed that same sentiments he made to Schefter about Howie Roseman wanting to prove to the players that there was stability in the locker room following the Chip Kelly era.Douglas also mentioned to Breer that the Eagles had previously shown interest in Avery Williamson as a 2018 free agent, and liked a lot about tight end Chris Herndon ahead of the 2018 NFL Draft — who was taken by the Jets in Round 4.So, Douglas may be moving 90 minutes north, but there’s still love between him and the Eagles organization, especially Howie Roseman. That’s a relationship that was built on respect and will continue in that fashion even as he takes a new post with the Jets. The Eagles traded defensive end Michael Bennett, and saw defensive end Chris Long retire. So where does that leave their pass rush?Bennett and Long combined for 15.5 of the Eagles’ 44 sacks last season and 121 of the defense’s 337 quarterback pressures Womens Nelson Agholor Jersey , according to Pro Football Focus. “That’s business as usual for us,” Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said Tuesday, via Paul Domowitch of philly.com. “There’s a challenge every year trying to replace certain production. We’ll miss those guys. They were an important part of what we did.“But that’s just life in the NFL. Change is nothing new. You’re going to have some roster turnover and you have to deal with it.”The Eagles signed Malik Jackson in free agency, and they will see the return of Vinny Curry, who spent last season with the Buccaneers. Plus, Derek Barnett and Tim Jernigan are healthy.Barnett payed six games before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery Zach Ertz Jersey , and Jernigan spent most of the season rehabbing from offseason back surgery and was limited to three games. “We’re excited about the new guys coming in,” Schwartz said. “We’ve added some experienced players. It’s good to get Vinny back. It really looks like he hasn’t missed a beat from where he was when he last played a game for us two years ago.“And then adding a guy like Malik inside, he’s a really good inside pass rusher. He’s a really good complement to Fletch [Fletcher Cox] inside. Plus, [Jernigan is] on the road to being more healthy. We haven’t really seen Timmy at his best since the Super Bowl.”So Schwartz isn’t sweating the team’s pass rush, believing the Eagles can get after the quarterback as good as or better than they did last season.
