Bears Q&A: Mitch Trubisky's camp, crowded receiver group, Kyle Fuller and more - Chicago Tribune
The encouraging sign is Fuller is on the field and looks fluid in his movements and that wasn’t the case at this time last summer. The Bears didn’t wait around this offseason for Fuller to return to form. They went out and signed two players they view as starters for this defense — Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper. Of course, Cooper has been slowed since camp opened with a tight hamstring that had him on the shelf back during the June minicamp and that has created some more meaningful reps for Fuller. There is no such thing as having too many good cornerbacks but I’m not sure what to make of Fuller’s situation right now. If you asked me back in the spring, I would have said he’s going to have a difficult time making the 53-man roster. I think he’s still got considerable ground to cover to get there. Yes, it’s possible the Bears would see if there is trade interest if Fuller shows well in preseason. We’ll have to wait and see what shakes out once they get a few games in.
Philadelphia Eagles Training Camp Practice Notes: Defense bounces back - BGN
Carson Wentz was up and down in practice. There was more good than bad, but the bad was bad. Wentz looked REALLY sharp in his first red zone series. The second-year quarterback connected with Darren Sproles on the wheel route. Then he targeted Trey Burton in the end zone. The ball was thrown to where the tight end could go up and make the play. Patrick Robinson got beat in coverage (surprise).

"He's a smart guy, picks things up quick. He asks good questions. Those are all important things for him," Schwartz said. "Just, even if he's not out there, he can experience something from the competitiveness of a red zone drill and see the way that veteran players react. He can see the way that Malcolm [Jenkins] and Rodney [McLeod] practice after a bad day and things like that.

Suddenly, Eagles WR Position is Loaded - PE.com
Nelson Agholor has the goal of “being one of the best receivers in the National Football League,” a notion that would have been difficult to fathom as he scuffled through the 2016 season. But this Agholor is completely different than that Agholor and, well, it’s hard not to root for the guy ...
Carson Wentz comfortable pushing ENTIRE Eagles organization - NFL.com
Said Pederson: "You catch yourself saying sometimes, 'Carson, don't worry about that right there. That'll take care of itself.' In the spring, he'd text me and say, 'Hey, who are you guys looking at (in the draft)? What are you working on today?' I mean, I'm having a staff meeting and I don't really need the extra input." Asked if he texted any advice to his bosses while the Eagles were on the clock during the draft, Wentz smiled and said, "No comment."

New Eagles cornerback Tay Glover-Wright spent last training camp and preseason with the Indianapolis Colts, but he was cut after the preseason and lasted just a week on the team's practice squad. So he went home and was forced into life after football. "I found work back home in Atlanta, Georgia," Glover-Wright said on Wednesday, after his second practice with the Eagles. "I was doing some direct marketing. All I did was play football my whole life, so I didn't really know what direct marketing was. I was like, 'Marketing sounds attractive, so let me go try it out.' Next thing I know I'm knocking on random people's doors trying to sell stuff."
