The Eagles officially exercised Wentz's (concussion) team option for 2020 on Friday, Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports reports.
Analysis: The move was merely procedural, as Wentz's (head) 2020 salary would have risen to $31.38 million while voiding the remaining years on his deal had Philadelphia declined to exercise the option. Wentz was forced out early in the Eagles' wild-card round loss to the Seahawks on Jan. 5 with a concussion, but he cleared all five phases of the NFL's concussion protocol three days later and would have been available had Philadelphia advanced to the divisional round, per Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Howard (shoulder) said Thursday that he's fully healthy after a shoulder stinger sidelined him for most of the second half of the 2019 season, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports. "I'm back to 100 percent now," Howard said. "It took a while, but I'm finally back to being 100 percent."
Analysis: As a member of the Eagles last season, Howard was the team's leading rusher through its first nine games, but he logged just one snap over Philadelphia's final eight games -- including a wild-card round loss to Seattle -- while managing the injury. After being active but going unused in the playoffs, Howard admitted afterward that he hadn't fully regained strength in his shoulder, but he now looks to be in a good spot health-wise following two-plus months of rest and rehab. The Dolphins' decision to sign Howard to a two-year, $10 million deal in the first week of free agency implies confidence in his health, and the 25-year-old tentatively looks in line to lead Miami's ground game in 2020. He could face more of a challenge for the top job, however, if the Dolphins invest an early round pick into a running back during April's draft.

Philadelphia picked of Ertz's contract option for 2021 Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: The news isn't a major surpise as the 29-year-old is set to earn $8 million and $8.5 million over the next two seasons, but the move officially puts him on the books for 2021. Ertz sustained a cracked rib and lacerated kidney Week 16 and missed the regular-season finale, but he returned to play 61 offensive snaps in the wild-card loss to the Seahawks. He finished the season with 88 catches for 916 yards and six touchdowns in 2019, and he'll enter next season as a top target for quarterback Carson Wentz.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman hopes Arcega-Whiteside can "take a big jump" in 2020, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
Analysis: The Eagles' failure to add wideout talent early in the offseason has drawn criticism, prompting Roseman to tell reporters the following: "I don't feel like the cupboard is as bare as you're describing. Doesn't mean we're ready to roll there." One aspect of Roseman's logic is that Arcega-Whiteside is now fully healthy, whereas last offseason he entered the NFL with lower body injuries (something that wasn't reported publicly at the time). The young wideout dealt with heel, leg and foot ailments at various points throughout his rookie season, ultimately catching 10 passes on 486 offensive snaps. The Eagles are hoping for better health and better production from each of Arcega-Whiteside, DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery (if he isn't traded), but they also figure to use at least one early draft pick on a wide receiver. There's also time to add a veteran or two, though the top names on the free agent market have already signed elsewhere.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman referred to Jeffery (foot) as "the elephant in the room" when he spoke to reporters Thursday, adding that the priority for the wide receiver is to get healthy, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: Roseman also acknowledged that Jeffery is aware of what's being said about him, presumably including trade rumors and (unconfirmed) reports of a fractured relationship with quarterback Carson Wentz. Roseman gave the impression Jeffery is still part of the plan in Philadelphia, but Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia is quick to note that the Eagles GM has every incentive to project that image, regardless of what the plan actually is. Jeffery is in the midst of a lengthy recovery process from Lisfranc surgery in December, entering the third season of a four-year contract with a full guarantee for his $9.91 million base salary in 2020. The Eagles thus have no incentive to release him, but they might be able to find a trade.
