Jack Stoll is Holding Off the Competition at TE2

PHILADELPHIA – When it comes to the tight end position and who is going to backup emerging star Dallas Goedert, the Eagles might want to take some advice from Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. For over 50 years now, The Rolling Stones have been belting out “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” with the

Eagles Training Camp Report: Offense Perseveres Without Top Tackles

PHILADELPHIA – Nick Sirianni mentioned the natural ebb and flow of training camp the last time we spoke to reporters and Saturday was an example of that as the offense bounced back a bit during Saturday’s “yellow practice” which went about 90 minutes in the South Philadelphia heat. The offense had struggled mightily at the

Jalen Reagor is Showing Signs of Life, What Does it Mean?

PHILADELPHIA – By this point, the Eagles had expected a meaningful contributor when they drafted Jalen Reagor at No. 21 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. It’s never fair to assume anyone is going to be a legitimate star at this point in the process but when struggles ensue and the next player selected, Minnesota’s

Eagles Training Camp Report: Defense Bounces Back

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles’ offense came back down to earth Thursday morning, following its sharpest session of the summer with one of its shakiest in what was oppressive heat at the NovaCare Complex. With temperatures expected to soar close to 100 degrees and well past that for the “real feel,” practice was moved up an

Undervalued to Underrated: T.J. Edwards Continues to Impress Eagles

Three numbers turned T.J. Edwards from college star to NFL longshot.Eagles It was the 4.87 40-yard dash that Edwards ran before the 2019 NFL Draft that erased the film of a first-team All-American and runner-up for the Butkus Award for many and turned tangible evidence of a good football player into a two-down dinosaur on

Eagles Training Camp Report: Hurts Gets Hot

PHILADELPHIA – The temperature surged into the 90s in South Philadelphia on Tuesday so everyone gathered at the NovaCare Complex was warm. Jalen Hurt, however, was hot, red hot in fact, after struggling for the first week of training camp, for the Eagles’ first padded practice of the year. The first indication that Hurts was

Eagles Training Camp Report: Nick Sirianni Downplays Offensive Struggles

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles were in shells for the first time this summer as the calendar flipped to August for a 75-minute practice session under overcast skies in South Philadelphia. Prior to the practice, head coach Nick Sirianni claimed his offense was performing well despite two consecutive perceived lackluster practices last week, although he did say

A Day After Second-Team Talk, Eagles Emphatically Stamp Miles Sanders as Starter

PHILADELPHIA – It was a little bit strange to see Miles Sanders rotating in training camp on Friday to the point that the Penn State product was taking some reps with the second-team offense. To some that served as a late-July eyebrow raise that perhaps second-year back Kenny Gainwell was gaining ground on Sanders for

Eagles Training Camp Report: James Bradberry Locks Down Practice Game Ball

PHILADELPHIA – For a second consecutive day the Eagles’ defense proved to be ahead of the offense early this summer, this time in a 90-minute practice highlighted by a competitive third-down period in which Jonathan Gannon’s first-team defense shut down Jalen Hurts and the offense to “win,” per the scorecard of head coach Nick Sirianni.

Relax on Haason Reddick

There was a little contradiction at the NovaCare Complex on Friday. It all started before practice when defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon was asked about the skill set of his new $15 million edge rusher, Haason Reddick. Evidently in the 58 minutes of high-intensity practice Wednesday, Reddick dropped a bit too much into coverage for some.

Eagles Training Camp Report: Defense Dominates on Day 2

PHILADELPHIA – The defense is supposed to be ahead of the offense early in training camp and that proved to be true Friday at the NovaCare Complex when Jonathan Gannon’s unit stymied Jalen Hurts and Co. to the tune of three interceptions and a stifling presence that put the screws on any potential splash plays.

Eagles Begin Jalen Hurts SZN

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles knew they were getting a WR1 when Howie Roseman made the draft-day deal to get A.J. Brown. The organization also understood the fringe benefit of providing Jalen Hurts with one of his best friends. What the Eagles weren’t expecting was a bodyguard but why not? If you get what you pay

Eagles Training Camp Report: Day 1

PHILADELPHIA – The final tally was 58 minutes in what the Eagles call a “high-intensity green” practice and to their credit, the first session of the summer did accomplish quite a bit despite the limited time with a heavy focus on red-zone work, both in team and 7-on-7 formats. The lightest summer on record will

Five Perceptions to Avoid at Eagles Training Camp

If idle hands are the devil’s workshop, you can imagine what downtime means when it comes to Philadelphia’s passion. The Eagles and their potential are debated endlessly by the organization’s fan base and when there is no tangible evidence to watch, perceptions are often turned into accepted truths. It’s actually a fascinating study of the
