Who needs to have a strong summer?

1 - Alshon Jeffery - Needs to be that dominant No. 1 wide receiver Eagles fans believe he can be

2 - Carson Wentz - Needs to look sharp

3 - Rasul Douglas - Needs to step up and be the No. 1 starting cornerback

4 - Nelson Agholor - Needs to show his encouraging spring performance wasn’t just a fluke

5 - Vinny Curry - Needs to prove he can contribute in the pass rush rotation and keep other players fresh

6 - Corey Clement - Needs to have an outstanding summer to prove people he’s not just a long shot

7 - Aaron Grymes - Needs to prove he can step up and handle the nickel role to solidify a position in the secondary

8 - Left Guard - Need to see someone break out and win the job

9 - Marcus Johnson - Needs to step up and win a depth job at the wide receiver position


Which NFC East had the worse offseason? The Dallas Cowboys or Washington Redskins?

Which changes what you make to uniforms in the NFL?

What’s better for the team: training camp being at NovaCare or Lehigh?

How is the left guard competition going to be decided if it’s close? Beauty contest? Eating competition?

Would you rather the Eagles be good and the rest of the NFC East be bad or the Eagles be good and the division be more competitive?

Do you wish you were here (where Cary is)?

Making fun of Jared Goff
