Eagles mandatory minicamp begins this week

New, comment

The final week of spring practice is here.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-Minicamp Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles will begin their mandatory minicamp this week after concluding the voluntary portion of their offseason workout program last Thursday. This minicamp marks the last phase of Philadelphia’s spring practices. After this week, the entire team won’t practice together again until Eagles training camp begins in late July.

The biggest difference between OTAs and minicamp is that this week’s practices are mandatory. Hence: “mandatory” minicamp. Players will be fined for skipping minicamp practices:

1st day missed: $14,775
2nd day missed: $29,550
3rd day missed: $44,325

Total: $88,650

Malcolm Jenkins is reportedly expected to miss this week’s minicamp as he pursues a pay raise [UPDATE: Nope! He’s attending minicamp after all]. Other veteran players such as Alshon Jeffery, Lane Johnson, and Jason Peters are expected to be back at practice after missing voluntary OTAs.

Bleeding Green Nation will have Eagles minicamp fully covered as I attend this week’s events in person. Follow me on Twitter for live updates (@BrandonGowton). The practice rules will be similar to the ones that took place during OTAs in that contact is still not allowed.
