The Philadelphia Eagles are set to start their three day mandatory minicamp practice schedule today on Tuesday, June 7. Unlike OTAs, attendance is not optional and players will be fined for skipping practice. That shouldn't be a problem, though, as the entire 90-man roster will be present save for three rookies: Isaac Seumalo, Byron Marshall, and Aziz Shittu. By NCAA rule, they're not allowed to attend because their classes aren't over. Veterans Fletcher Cox and Darren Sproles, who skipped the team's voluntary workouts this offseason, arrived in Philadelphia on Monday.
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson will speak before practice around 12:00 noon ET. Players will be available to media in the locker room from 12:15 through 1:00 PM ET. Practice is set to begin around 1:20 PM ET. Remember, no live contact is allowed at this point in the offseason. Players are allowed to wear helmets but no pads are permitted.
I'll be covering minicamp live at the NovaCare Complex (Eagles headquarters) all three days this week. Follow along with live Twitter updates from myself (@BrandonGowton) and other Philly beat reporters that will appear in the list below.
Stay tuned to Bleeding Green Nation for plenty of minicamp coverage including practice notes and quotes from coaches/players. As a reminder, here's a look at the remaining Eagles offseason workout schedule. TTraining camp doesn't begin until late July.
