Eagles training camp preview: Specialists

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

At long last, our final installment of training camp previews... the kickers!

Alex Henery - Henery has hit 88% of his FG attempts through his first two seasons, and although he hasn't attempted many from beyond 50 yards, he has the leg for it. Here's what I wrote about Alex during OTAs:

Alex Henery had two attempts from 60 yards out today. From my vantage point, I couldn't tell if Henery put them through the uprights or not, but both had plenty of distance. The first one would have been good from 70. I promise that is not an exaggeration. The second kick didn't have quite as much distance, but it cleared the crossbar by at least 2 or 3 yards. Henery thought both kicks were good when I talked to him after practice.

Henery doesn't have any competition, sooooo.... He'll probably win the job.

Donnie Jones - I wrote at Philly.com how awful the Eagles' punters were with hang time last year, which is Jones' specialty. No matter which punter wins this job, it will be a monumental upgrade.

Brad Wing - Wing flunked his physical and was placed on the NFI (non-football injury) list. Not good.

Jon Dorenbos - I'm a little surprised that the Eagles didn't give Dorenbos some competition this season. He was not good in 2012.
