New Jersey native Kenny Britt does things in New Jersey, must be signing with Eagles

New Jersey native Kenny Britt does things in New Jersey, must be signing with Eagles

While NFL free agency does not officially begin until Thursday at 4 p.m., the legal tampering period has started and people on social media are getting nuts.

The Eagles have been reportedly linked with nearly every wide receiver on the market and things got particularly weird Tuesday with free-agent WR Kenny Britt.

It all started with a tweet.

Does that say Kenny Britt? Here's another from Smitty from Barstool seemingly confirming the story.

So, it's happening, right? Not so fast -- Britt's agent, Fadde Mikhail, chimed in.

Shot down.

Remember, Britt is from Bayonne, New Jersey, and went to Rutgers.

This is a good reminder that, while a lot of things will be posted and reported over the next few days, until players can officially sign with teams on Thursday at 4 p.m., remember to consider the source and take everything you see with a grain of salt.

On that note, can anyone help Alshon Jeffery with a ride from the Philadelphia International Airport?

Use your training on this one.

A look at some of the weirdest, most random jerseys spotted at the NFL draft

A look at some of the weirdest, most random jerseys spotted at the NFL draft

When 200,000 NFL fans descend on one location, there are going to be a lot of bad jerseys. A lot.

Among a sea of Carson Wentz jerseys, here’s a look at some of the jerseys actual people were actually wearing out in public at the 2017 NFL draft.

1. Cleveland Browns QBs
I’m surprised I didn’t see more, to be honest, but I ended up seeing a total of five former Browns QBs represented at the 2017 NFL draft, with the only star being Bernie Kosar. The other four have a combined record of 34-71. Welcome to the dynasty, DeShone Kizer.

2. Shane Falco
Standing next to a Wentz jersey makes this even better. Shane Falco, played by Keanu Reeves in the movie The Replacements, was one of a few fake jerseys floating around. There was word of a Ray Finkle jersey among the masses, but unfortunately, no photos have surfaced.

3. Every Eagles Fan’s Nightmare
These two shouldn’t be allowed to walk around together. Nick Foles is back in the fold for the Birds this season, but seeing him next to a Wentz jersey in a walking boot is a sight for sore eyes for anyone hoping No. 11 stays healthy all season long. Let’s hope this doesn’t become a reality.

4. Harambe
Where does one even get a No. 69 Harambe Dolphins jersey? The internet is a weird place.

5. The McCoy to McCaffrey
This jersey lasted all of eight picks before Christian McCaffrey went to the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. There were a lot of Eagles McCoy jerseys, and even a few Bills fans with his name on their backs, so we can appreciate the effort here as well as the headwear.

6. 17 catches
Donte Stallworth pulled in a total of 17 passes for the Browns in 2008 for 170 yards.

7. Big Money Maxwell
Byron Maxwell made a big-money move to the Eagles in 2015, but lasted just one lackluster season before he was traded to Miami as the Birds moved up in the 2016 draft. There were a number of Maxwell, Kiko Alonso and Nnamdi Asomugha jerseys in the crowd that just need to be retired.

8. It’s been a while...
He had a fine career for the New York Jets, but Wayne Chrebet hasn’t caught a pass in the NFL since 2005.

9. Tebow Time
When the player on your jersey doesn’t even play the same sport anymore, it’s time to move on. Tebow was featured in just four preseason games for the Eagles in 2015.

10. Right guy, wrong team
Donovan McNabb went 5-8 during his forgettable one-year stint as the quarterback for the Washington Redskins. I kinda get wearing this in Philadelphia, but it’s probably time to move on.

New Eagles WR Mack Hollins bringing his snakes with him to Philly

New Eagles WR Mack Hollins bringing his snakes with him to Philly

When Eagles' fourth-round pick Mack Hollins drives up to Philadelphia from his hometown Rockville, Maryland, he's going to have two companions. 

His snakes. 

Hollins, the UNC receiver, is a big fan of exotic animals. His two snakes — a ball python and a sunglow boa — were sitting by him as he spoke on a conference call with Philly reporters on Saturday afternoon. 

According to his bio at North Carolina, Hollins' dream job is to one day own a "world-renowned aquarium." 

"I actually have both my snakes here now," Hollins said. "I've had turtles. I was going to get an alligator at school, but my roommates weren't really all for it. My dad had a lion growing up, so we've had it all."

A lion? 

Where do you keep a lion? 

"His dad had it in a big cage in his yard," Hollins answered. "I guess in Ohio, the permits aren't as difficult to get exotic animals. Might be where I get mine from. I don't know how Philly will feel about some of the exotic animals, but I might have to get a couple."

For now, though, Hollins is sticking with his snakes. And he plans on driving them to Philly. 

"It's nothing but an hour drive," he said. "I'll put them in a car and load them up. I might come with nothing but the snakes."
