Philadelphia Eagles talk: Corey Clement has some advice for Josh Adams

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - FEBRUARY 04: Corey Clement /

We were looking around at some Philadelphia Eagles news, and we recently found some interesting thoughts from Corey Clement about Josh Adams (and vice versa).

Okay, we give up. We just can’t leave the Corey Clement stories and hopes that there’s another version in this year’s rookie class alone. Once upon a time, that was believed to be Josh Adams. Then, as we started looking around the web, we saw some interesting stuff on the Philadelphia Eagles, and Corey Clement’s name comes up again. That’s when it hits us.

We haven’t talked about undrafted rookie running back Josh Adams as often as we once did. Who knows why that is, but Clement’s got some advice, seeing as how he was in the same position last season.

Well, this is interesting.

Perhaps there was too much pressure on Eagles undrafted rookie Josh Adams early. Whenever training camp and the preseason rolls around, there’s always a desire to find that diamond in the rough.

This year, all eyes were on the former Notre Dame standout.

Why? Maybe it was because he played one of the glory positions in the NFL, running back. Maybe it was because we saw Corey Clement take the Eagles and professional football by storm a season ago.

Clement is now firmly entrenched in Philly’s rotation of running backs, and he looks at guys like Adams with a watchful eye. Adams impressed early, but as things have progressed, it doesn’t appear as though we talk about him as much.

He’s in danger of being left off of the Eagles’ 53-man active roster.

Big brother has some advice. Here’s a quote taken from a recent story by Zach Berman of

"I remember talking to [reporters] last year being in the same position. I tried to not let it get to me. … If you’re on the bubble, you can’t think like that. Enjoy it. Be thankful that you’re out there, because not many people get the chance to do it."

It appears that the rookie is taking notes. In reference to Clement, Adams had this to say:

"He was here, just like everybody else trying to make the team, and he worked his butt off and made it happen. It goes to show that everyone’s here the same. You have to work, you have to earn, to get what you want."

That’s good stuff. We’ll see how things play out. One game remains on the Eagles’ preseason schedule, and it’s on Thursday.
