Eagles to participate in joint practices with the Dolphins ahead of final preseason game

Philadelphia Eagles to participate in joint practices with the Miami Dolphins ahead of the final preseason game

The Eagles will open up their preseason with a matchup against the Jets on August 12, and then the action will really heat up during joint practice sessions.

After previously announcing joint practice sessions with the Browns during their week in Cleveland, Philadelphia will spend the bulk of their final week of training camp holding joint practices with the Dolphins at their training facility in Miami.

Last summer, the Eagles hosted the Patriots for joint practices and then traveled to the Jets’ facility to conduct two days of practices against New York prior to preseason games against each team.

If 2021 was an example, Philadelphia will likely put more stock into those two weeks of practice against the Browns and Jets, choosing to use the game action for bubble players and reserves.

1 veteran player on roster bubble at each position group for the Eagles

1 veteran player on the roster bubble at each position group for the Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have entered week three of the offseason workout program and as the organization works towards training camp, the roster has grown exponentially and several veterans could be on the bubble.

With a massive undrafted free agent class, several talented players wanted unselecting, setting up the scenario where Philadelphia fills their roster with cheap, and valuable talent without guarantees.

The quarterback, wide receiver, defensive tackle and cornerback positions offer several intriguing camp battles and we’ve highlighted one veteran player at each position who could be the odd man out.

Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason workout dates released: 5 things to watch

The NFL just announced its nine-week offseason workout routine for all 32 teams with the training programs broken down into three phases, one mandatory minicamp for the entire roster and one rookie minicamp for each team.

Phase One consists of the first two weeks of the program with activities limited to meetings, strength and conditioning, and physical rehabilitation only.

Phase Two consists of the next three weeks of the program with on-field workouts which may include individual or group instruction.

Phase Three consists of the next four weeks of the program where teams may conduct a total of 10 days of organized team practice activity, or “OTAs”.

No live contact is permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted.

With the rest of the offseason schedule now completed, here are five things to watch.

Eagles’ using mini basketball hoops at the NFL Combine to gauge draft prospects competitiveness

#Philadelphia #Eagles’ head coach Nick #Sirianni is at again, this time using mini-hoops at the #NFLCombine to gauge #NFLDraft2022 prospects’ competitiveness

The Eagles are a team built on core principles and competition, with head coach Nick Sirianni using anything to gauge your spirit.

Last spring when he was hired,  Philadelphia’s new head coach referenced playing games like rock, paper, scissors to determine just how competitive a player or top draft prospect truly is.

One year later and that competitive edge is still burning strong, with the Eagles head coach using mini-basketball hoops to gauge how Sam Howell and other draft prospects handle the competition.

Philadelphia has three first-round picks in April’s NFL draft, and as Howie Roseman mentioned on Tuesday, the Eagles can’t afford to waste resources or picks.

Eagles to participate in joint practices with the Browns during training camp

The #Philadelphia #Eagles will reportedly take part in joint practice sessions with the #Cleveland #Browns during their #trainingcamp

Training camp for the Eagles is months away, but we already have an idea of joint training camp sessions with one NFL team.

Zach Berman of The Athletic is reporting that the Eagles and Browns will hold joint training camp practices at Cleveland’s facility this summer.

The Eagles “requested with the league to play in Cleveland in the preseason and are working to schedule practices with the Browns in conjunction with the game,” according to a league source.

The Browns’ training facility is located in Berea, Ohio, and the expectation is that the teams would participate in two days of high-energy practices, followed by the preseason game.

The Eagles hosted joint practice with the New England Patriots and were the visitor’s sessions with the New York Jets in head coach Nick Sirianni’s first training camp last summer, with the rookie head coach putting a huge emphasis on those matchups.

Eagles could potentially play in Mexico vs. Cardinals in the NFL’s 2022 International Series

The Philadelphia Eagles could potentially face the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico City in 2022 as part of the International Series.

The Philadelphia Eagles have some of the best fans in the NFL, and they travel well, taking over stadiums all across the country. How the Eagles fans travel internationally could again be answered next season as potential candidates to face the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico City.

The National Football League announced on Monday, that the Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, Jacksonville Jaguars, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play international games during the 2022 season.

The Cardinals have eight home opponents scheduled for 2022, and the Philadelphia Eagles are one of them.

With the NFL wanting to put star power on display at Azteca Stadium, there are several options for Roger Goodell to pair with Kyler Murray and the rising Cardinals.

The Rams, 49ers, Seahawks, Eagles, Patriots, Chargers, and Bills all have stars at quarterback and are playoff-caliber opponents worthy of the matchup.

With the NFL using travel and fatigue as a factor, they could choose to keep in the NFC West, choosing from among the Rams, Seahawks, or 49ers as the opponent.

The appeal of an Eagles-Cardinals matchup would center around the two quarterbacks and the fans of the opposing team.

13 reasons why Eagles GM will look to trade a 2022 first-round pick for more draft assets in 2023

After hearing his end of the year press conference, here are 13 reasons why #Eagles GM Howie #Roseman will look to trade a 2022 first-round pick for more #NFLDraft assets in 2023

During the 2021 NFL offseason, Howie Roseman was able to trade Carson Wentz and land a pre-draft deal with the Dolphins, resulting in three first-round picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, but after listening to his end of the season press conference, Philadelphia’s top decision-maker could have something even more brazen up his sleeves.

The Eagles are technically still in the midst of a rebuild and although they made the postseason, last year was still supposed to be about seeing what they had at quarterback and other key positions.

That press conference, coupled with a lack of star power in the upcoming draft is why the evaluation will continue,  giving Hurts another year as the starter,  but could Roseman move one of his coveted 2022 assets in hopes of greener pastures in 2023?

If Roseman still has dreams of a more conventional superstar passer or a once-in-a-lifetime pass rusher, the 2023 draft could offer at minimum, seven quarterbacks for Philadelphia and other teams to start targeting.

If Philadelphia dreams of an all-world pass-rusher or stud wide receiver, an extra first-round pick would be gold.

Here are some of the top 2023 signal-callers, a star running back, and one all-world edge rusher that could have Roseman waiting patiently for that greener pasture.

Eagles: Jalen Hurts to immediately start preparing for his 3rd NFL season

#Philadelphia #Eagles: Jalen #Hurts to immediately start preparing for his 3rd #NFL season

The Philadelphia Eagles just wrapped up an up and down NFL season that resulted in a playoff berth, but also exposed a handful of warts that are holding this franchise back.

Hurts was 23 of 43 passing on Sunday, accounting for 258-yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Hurts addressed the media in a walking boot, and he’s likely headed for offseason ankle surgery after toughing it out for the past eight or nine weeks.

One of the hardest workers that you’ll ever meet, Hurts confirmed that his third NFL offseason will start immediately, like tomorrow.

Hurts works with talented quarterback guru Quincy Avery, and this spring and summer will be about continuing to fine-tune his footwork, while also teaching a quarterback who’s played in 20-total NFL regular-season games and one humbling postseason appearance.

NFC playoff scenario: 49ers defeat Texans as Eagles await Packers-Vikings outcome

#NFC playoff scenario: #49ers defeat #Texans as #Eagles await #Packers-#Vikings outcome

The Eagles are playoff from a technical standpoint, but it won’t be official until after the Packers are able to defeat the Vikings on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.

49ers star rookie Trey Lance threw two touchdown passes in the second half of his second career start, and San Francisco 49ers stayed alive in the playoff hunt with a 23-7 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday.

San Francisco (9-7) started Lance with Jimmy Garoppolo sidelined by a thumb injury and the 49ers will be able to clinch their second playoff berth in five seasons under coach Kyle Shanahan with a loss by New Orleans or a win next week against the Rams.

For Philadelphia, Sunday’s victory by San Francisco eliminated a potential three-way tie between San Francisco, New Orleans, and Philadelphia per Mike Kaye of NJ.com.

Such a tie-breaker scenario would have provided the 49ers and Saints the postseason advantage over the Eagles based on their strength of schedule.

Philadelphia owns the tie-breaker scenario over New Orleans thanks to their win earlier this season, and they’ll simply need Green Bay to defeat the Vikings on Sunday night in order for the Eagles to enter Week 18 in the playoffs.
