As you can see from the title of the Linc, today is the day the rest of the team reports to the NovaCare facility for Eagles Training Camp. The first full team practice will be tomorrow (Friday). Today, the assistant coaches will speak to the media early on and then the players will report later in the day.

Eagles training camp 2013: Day 3 recap - Jimmy Kempski, Philly.com
Jimmy talks more about the new drill the Eagles WRs are doing. Also some notes on Will Shaw, Ifeanyi Momah, Matt Barkley, and more.
Chip Kelly’s Mystery Man - Jenny Vrentas, The MMQB
A very insightful piece here that takes a look at the Eagles mystery man: Sports Science Coordinator Shaun Huls. Money quote: "Why not devote significant resources … to a cutting-edge approach that will help keep players on the field and maximize their performance?"
McNabb on McNabb - Paul Domowitch, Eagletarian
Domo had the chance to do a Q&A with some guy named "Donovan McNabb". You may have heard of him. Donny Mac talks about his upcoming official retirement, the Philly fans, and how his Eagles career came to an end.
Eagles training camp 2013: Eagles rookies discuss batted passes - Jimmy Kempski, Philly.com
"One statistic that is becoming more prevalent in the NFL is "batted passes." They have become popularized by the Houston Texans' J.J. Watt, who led the league with 16 of them in 2012, which is a staggering number for one player. In fact, Watt had more batted passes in 2012 than the entire Eagles roster had in 2011 and 2012 combined."
Lane Johnson getting 'back into football mode' - Geoff Mosher, CSN
"The Eagles hope Johnson’s learning curve bends much quicker than the last offensive linemen they plucked in the first round. Danny Watkins, the 23rd-overall pick of the 2011 draft, will report to camp Thursday fighting to preserve his roster spot in his third season, a season in which most first-rounders are ready to break through. Watkins has started just 18 games and played in 23 over his two seasons."
