Updating the Eagles' camp battles - PhillyVoice
The coaching staff has gone way out of their way to praise Carroll for his work ethic this offseason, and he has consistently played with the first team defense throughout camp. That's not to say that Rowe has been bad. He has shined at times, but has not been as consistent as Carroll, and is still learning the intricacies of the position at the pro level. Leader: After the team traded Brandon Boykin and then lost JaCorey Shepherd to injury, the Eagles opted to give slot corner reps to Rowe, which is a clear indication that Carroll is the leader to start outside at corner opposite Byron Maxwell.

Will Josh Huff get enough chances in passing game? - Inquirer
Josh Huff wrote down his individual goals for the season on a piece of paper. The Eagles wide receiver rattled them off: He wants to have no more than 10 drops in 16 games. He wants to catch every catchable pass. And he wants to finish the season with at least 50 catches for 800 yards and six touchdowns. Those aren't modest goals considering Huff's output in his rookie season. He caught eight passes for 98 yards and no touchdowns and dropped four of 17 targeted throws in 2014. But Huff, who has been a more consistent practice player this year, believes those numbers are attainable.

The play: Mark Sanchez throws a short hitch to Nelson Agholor, who jumps up to grab it and then runs for the 34-yard touchdown. How it happened: Agholor made an impressive catch, but Sanchez's inaccuracy may have partially caused Colts cornerback Greg Toler to overrun the play because of the delayed timing. Agholor then outraced Colts safety Mike Adams, who could have taken a better angle, to the goal line.

Hometown WR Rasheed Bailey working to find role with Eagles - CSN Philly
Rasheed Bailey is all too familiar to the underdog role. A half hour after practice on Tuesday, Bailey was one of four players left on the field getting extra work, catching rocketed balls out of a machine, and then another drill catching around a PVC pipe designed to work on hand placement and simulate making tough catches in traffic. In the 90-plus degree heat, Bailey was out there doing it over and over again.

Seyi Ajirotutu was at his NFL crossroads. He didn't have a team. He didn't have a role. He knew that if he had another chance, he would have to re-invent himself to last in the NFL.

'Winning is the deodorant' for Chip Kelly's bumpy offseason with the Eagles - SB Nation
The Eagles are Chip Kelly's team now, despite plenty of criticism inside and outside the organization. With the roster made over in his vision, can he take the team from consistent winners to perpetual champions?

In Philly, Sam Bradford is Spot On | The MMQB w/Peter King
Sam Bradford will not win you any fantasy titles, but he may just dethrone Alex Smith as football’s best game manager. He’s been uber-accurate in camp and has built a nice rapport with first-round rookie wideout Nelson Agholor in camp. Kelly’s offensive identity is more about maintaining tempo and ball security and less about the quarterback taking matters into his own hands, and Bradford seems to be the right man for that job.
