Eagles Training Camp Practice Notes: Jalen Hurts up and down to start the summer - BGN
Overall, I can’t say Hurts looked night and day different from last year. That’s hardly the end of the world; it’s only one day of training camp. And it might be what should be expected considering he started slower last year and finished strong. But for Day 1? Stock even.

Eagles training camp Day 1 recap - BGN Radio

Shocking stats for all 32 NFL teams: Unlucky Browns, Lamar Jackson against the blitz, Colts’ play-action and Saints in the red zone - ESPN+
Philadelphia threw just 10% of passes in the middle of the field. Every other offense in the league was at least at 16%, with the NFL average at 22%. Instead of throwing up the middle, the Eagles threw a league-leading 52% of passes to the right side of the field.

Eagles 53-man roster projection at the start of training camp - PhillyVoice
The Eagles lack a bigger between-the-tackles banger like they’ve had with Jordan Howard the last few years. They could certainly add one before the season begins, whether that’s Howard or somebody else. Another candidate for a fourth running back roster spot is undrafted free agent Kennedy Brooks. And then there’s Jason Huntley, who is one of the fastest players on the team, and a guy who has shown some juice both in practice and when he has gotten opportunities in games. He is also the best kick returner on the team. But for some reason, it hasn’t yet translated to a regular spot on the 53-man roster. If it were up to me (it’s not), he’d make the roster. [BLG Note: Let the record show that Huntley is NOT on Jimmy’s roster prediction unlike mine. More evidence that Huntley is my guy.]

Understanding why Eagles training camp got even shorter - NBCSP
Nick Sirianni ran one of the lightest training camps in history last summer. It just got lighter. A big change in this year’s Eagles practice schedule is the addition of four walkthroughs that replace full practices over the next couple weeks. Because of the walkthroughs, the Eagles won’t hold full practices more than two days in a row at any point this summer. “My job is to make sure the team is ready to play,” Sirianni said. “And so I have to listen to the experts. I have to listen to our doctors, I have to listen to our strength and performance staff and I have to listen to our trainers, but at the end of the day, I have to make sure the team’s ready to play. “So it isn’t just blind faith, it’s educated how we’re doing these things and sometimes I have to make hard decisions on what to do and what not to d

‘You saved him’: Inside Brandon Graham’s special bond with an Eagles fan -
“I’m telling you, you saved him,” shouted Peg Eitl. She was unable to contain her gratitude when she spotted Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham walking onto the practice field for Training Camp on Wednesday. Her son, Joe, has Down Syndrome. He spent the past two years listening to motivational videos from Graham while preparing for and recovering from a heart and liver transplant in 2020. Joe brimmed with excitement when Graham embraced him and signed his jersey before heading to practice. At long last, he met his favorite Eagle. An Eagle who his father, Craig Eitl says, “is one of the reasons Joe is alive today.”

Cowboys 2022 training camp: Day one standouts - Blogging The Boys
After the first day of practice, the defense definitely got the better of the offense. While there’s no reason to panic, the offense lost Amari Cooper, La’el Collins, Connor Williams, Cedrick Wilson, and Blake Jarwin this offseason, all players who played large roles in Kellen Moore’s offense. While it’s often a trend for the defense to be a step or so ahead of the offense in training camp, it’s something to monitor closely as we progress through the offseason.

Giants training camp, Day 1: New day for the Giants’ offense, more takeaways - Big Blue View
That’s a brilliant, twisting catch by Toney with cornerback Aaron Robinson in tight coverage. Wednesday was a good day for Toney. He caught a few balls, he celebrated with Wan’Dale Robinson after the rookie caught a touchdown pass. He made it through the entire practice without incident. Truth is, after one day Toney has already had a better and more productive training camp than he did in the entirety of the 2021 camp.

Dan Snyder agrees to a voluntary deposition under oath remotely for the House Oversight Committee - Hogs Haven
Dan Snyder(through his lawyers) and the House Committee on Oversight and Reform have been going back and forth in the media for months about his potential testimony for his role in running a toxic workplace with multiple accusations of sexual harassment and abuse. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell testified before the Committee last month, but Snyder said he had previous team-related commitments out of the country, and couldn’t appear, even virtually as Goodell did. Snyder has reportedly been in France, and will soon be in Israel this month for the anniversary of his mother’s death.
