Philadelphia Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie and head coach Doug Pederson are both expected to address reporters at the NFL’s annual spring owner meetings this week. Lurie’s expected to meet with the media later on Tuesday while Pederson will speak early on Wednesday morning at the NFC coaches breakfast.

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from Lurie. In fact, it’s been over a year since he last spoke to reporters. Lurie typically doesn’t make himself easily available as some owners do (such as Jerry Jones), but he usually hasn’t gone this long without speaking. In 2013 and 2014, he met with reporters directly after the final games of the season. In 2015, he spoke shortly after firing Chip Kelly a few days before the team’s Week 17 season finale.

Lurie will be asked about a number of topics, including:

As for Pederson, the last time he spoke was at the 2017 NFL Combine earlier this month. He’ll likely be asked about:

Bleeding Green Nation will have full coverage of the Lurie and Pederson media sessions so stay tuned here for more information.

Other things to watch out for from the owner’s meetings this week include the status of the Raiders moving to Las Vegas and potential NFL rule changes. The Eagles originally submitted five proposals but withdrew four of them so they’re down to one now.
