The Eagles tried to quiet down all the negativity in Philadelphia on Tuesday by deflecting the defensive consultant issue.
The team said they weren’t hiring a defensive consultant. That doesn’t mean they didn’t try to.
ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio reported Wednesday morning that Eric Mangini was the team’s first choice for the gig, but he turned down the offer. Mangini is now working at ESPN.
The fact the Eagles already offered the job to someone makes us think they’ll find someone to come in during their bye week.
