Eagles plan to give FA Shockey a physical
The Eagles, intent on improving their tight end depth, plan to give free agent Jeremy Shockey a physical within the next week.

Backup running backs will push McCoy
You'd think Pro Bowler LeSean McCoy has it easy now that he signed a lucrative five-year contract extension this offseason, but his backups won't make it too easy for him.

Mcall.com: Eagles Insiders : Pederson: Kafka ready for action
"I think he is ready," Pederson confirmed. "I look at that [Atlanta] Falcons game [last season, when Pederson stepped in for Vick and went 7-for-9 for 72 yards] and what he was able to do in the second half. He really was as raw as you're going to get without having an offseason, without having really any time to prepare outside of camp to take over and put your team in a position to win a football game"

Eagles training camp recap: Day 1, July 23, 2012, morning session: Trashcans simply can’t block Fletcher Cox – Blogging the bEast
Fletcher Cox got some reps at DE today. He absolutely dominated a gray trashcan that was trying to block him. In fairness, the trashcan had a great motor, but Cox outweighed it by 275 lbs. and he was at least 3 feet taller.

NFL training camp: Ten questions | National Football Post
The Eagles had plenty of problem defensively last season from scheme, to discipline and technique under coordinator Juan Castillo. But watching this club play out the schedule, they did improve at the end of the year. Move to this offseason, the addition of LB DeMeco Ryans (an immediate upgrade at the LB position) and more edge speed via the draft. If the Eagles can play more consistently on defense, this is one of the top teams in the entire league (and my early NFC East favorite).
