Ok settle down... Todd Pinkston is indeed back with the Eagles in Lehigh but as a coach, not a player. Pinkston is one of several new coaching interns this year.

Todd Pinkston is in camp. Yes, that's right, but don't get your hopes up, fans. The second-round pick from the 2000 draft is here as a coaching intern, at the invitation of wide receivers coach Dave Culley, who knows Pinkston is trying to break into coaching back home in Mississippi.

"Once you've been playing sports and football all your life, it's something you want to hand down to the kids coming up, that look up to you," Pinkston said.

Every year Andy Reid gives former players the chance to get their feet wet as coaches. Former Eagles like Doug Pederson, Mike Zordich, & Brandon Whiting are all also in camp as interns this year.

Remember, Pinkston is here to learn not teach. So it's unlikely we'll see him passing on his inafmous alligator arms to the Eagles corps of young WRs.
