Eagles RB DeMarco Murray wants to get some preseason reps

Eagles running back DeMarco Murray is being held out of the preseason by head coach Chip Kelly. After handling such a heavy workload last season, Kelly wants to limit Murray's touches as much as possible in order to keep him fresh. While Murray understands why he's being held out, he still wants to get some preseason reps in. "I don't think it's a big deal," Murray said. "He's doing whatever's best for the team. At the end of the day, he's looking at what's best for the team. I'm all for it. They know what's best for the team … We'll see how it goes. It's obviously Chip's decision. But I felt good and I'm hoping to play … You're out here practicing, out here working. You definitely want to get a touch or two in the preseason, just get a feel for it. You want to get a couple hits in … I'm very comfortable with the offense. I'm very comfortable with myself. It all depends on what they want to do. They know what's best for the team."

Eagles QB Tim Tebow becoming more likely to make team and could be a real weapon

Eagles quarterback Tim Tebow is looking more and more like he's going to make the 53-man roster. Chip Kelly has been impressed with his running, although his passing is less than stellar. Kelly believes he could be a viable weapon, particularly in short-yardage situations. The new extra point rule may put Tebow over the top. He's the perfect weapon for two-point conversions.

Giants WR Rueben Randle believes their passing offense may be 'close to unstoppable'

New York Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle is a ton of confidence in the team's passing attack this season. With Odell Beckham, Victor Cruz and even Shane Vereen out there with Randle, he could be right. The only possible doubt he has is if they struggle to protect Eli Manning. "I'd say close to unstoppable," Randle told the Daily News on Thursday. "Just the type of players we have on this side of the ball, if we can protect Eli, give us time to get open downfield, there's not really a coverage you can put out there to stop us … If I get overlooked that's going to be a good thing. There's going to be a lot of plays where I'm open. There's going to be a lot of opportunities for me to make plays, and I have to take advantage of it … This is one of the more talented teams I've been a part of. Really, the sky is the limit for us."
