Four sub-radar Philadelphia Eagles have teammates and coaches beaming.
Sure, this dynamic probably exists on every NFL team, but if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, there’s an annual tradition that’s taken a life of its own over the past few seasons. At the dawn of every training camp, we speculate over who the guys are that have a chance of exceeding expectations and playing above the standard that we, as fans, have set for them (and quite honestly, the standards that they may have set for themselves).
Hey, don’t blame the fans and media. Blame Paul Turner, Corey Clement, and Josh Adams. Every standout in the preseason isn’t guaranteed to wow us on gamedays (Turner and Daeshon Hall), but occasionally, they can pay dividends in the regular and postseason (Clement and Josh Adams).
The goal for every NFL team is to see your draftees work out if you’re an NFL squad, but every so often, there’s a veteran that shakes the dust or rust off, and they show us that our dismissal or decision to ignore them has inspired them to great things.
Don’t look now, but there are several members of this Eagles roster who are causing a stir at the NovaCare Complex, including four potential starters that were given a little shine recently. Credit ESPN’s Tim McManus for an assist on this one. Buckle up. We have much to talk about.
