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.

Have you ever wanted to see Zach Ertz naked?

Well now is your chance.

After marrying in March, Ertz and his wife, Julie, who plays on the US women's soccer team, will both appear in the 2017 ESPN The Magazine Body Issue.

You can see a preview of the two, but you’ll have to wait until the issue comes out on July 5 to see the full photo shoot.

Ertz joins other NFL stars Ezekiel Elliot and Julian Edelman in the issue.

Whatever Ertz ends up doing (or showing) in the photos, it can’t be more magnificent than Vince Wilfork’s cover in 2016.

Concerned about Ben Simmons' right foot?

Well, don't be.

While Simmons will not play in the Summer League, the 6-foot-10 point guard/forward/baller sure does look healthy and ready to go for 2017.

Early Sunday morning, a shirtless Simmons posted an Instagram video of a delicious one-handed self alley-oop after working out at the Sixers' practice facility in Camden.

A little fun after 🤷🏻‍♂️

A post shared by Ben Simmons (@bensimmons) on

Let's circle back to Thursday night after the NBA draft and LaVar Ball.

After LaVar's highly ambitious — an awfully generous take —  prediction that his son, Lonzo Ball, drafted No. 2 by the Lakers, would lead L.A. to the playoffs this season, Simmons had a cryptic tweet presumably about LaVar.

That sparked Joel Embiid to tweet:

And now, with Simmons' Instagram post early Sunday morning, we have evidence the 2016 No. 1 overall pick is healthy enough to, indeed, throw down some rambunctious dunks.

Of course, we'll have to see it in a game first, but until then, let's think of June 25 as the day Ben Simmons unofficially put Lonzo Ball on notice.
