The Eagles will see their players get back to work pretty soon.
Just in case you missed it, the NFL announced the schedule for each team’s offseason workout program on April 3rd. The Philadelphia Eagles will begin theirs on April 17th. It isn’t quite time for football yet, but any fan of this team will be excited to hear anything related to the game is happening. That just means the 2017 season is one step closer to beginning.
What’s next for defensive tackle Fletcher Cox? How will the newly-acquired Eagles adjust to their new surroundings? Will it be continued progression or a sophomore slump for quarterback Carson Wentz? We won’t know the answers to any of this immediately, but the first step to making this team better begins on Monday when everyone mentioned and their teammates reconvene at the NovaCare Complex.
What to expect:

Voluntary workouts will begin this week. The 2017 NFL Draft, as you know, begins on April 27th. At that point, we’ll finally be able to end the speculation and see what the Eagles do with their eight picks, beginning with the 14th-overall selection.
Organized team activities begin in the latter part of May. Mandatory minicamp begins in the middle of June, but first thing’s first. It’s time for the Eagles to begin working on team comradery. It’s time to get in shape. Expect everyone present to be fully focused and have their minds on football again.
There are typically some noticeable absences around this time of year, but contracts have been handed out. Everyone’s been taken care of (hence the salary cap issues), so there’s no reason to believe anything other than everyone who’s supposed to be there will be. Even still, it’s hard to gauge these things, so we shall soon see.
