Eagles Reveal Training Camp Plans

Chip Kelly has turned everything from the team’s nutritional habits to its practice schedule on its head since taking over as head coach. The Eagles will no longer make their annual trip to Lehigh for training camp. Instead, they will mostly practice at their NovaCare Complex. The team will hold 5 practices in Lincoln Financial Field that will be open and free to the public. The dates of the public practices are July 28, August 5, August 11, August 17, and August 26.

The Eagles will also hold a pair of joint practices with the New England Patriots, their first preseason opponent. Usually, one or two pairs of teams decide to practice together each preseason, but I didn’t think it would be the Eagles. So far, Kelly and company have been rather secretive, and I’m surprised that he would let another coaching staff get such an up-close-and-personal look at his team. Those practices will be held August 6 and 7. Players generally enjoy joint practices as they get the opportunity to hit somebody different. In this case, the defense will have its hands full against Tom Brady, even if he will be missing Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski.
