For Philadelphia Eagles fans, there are still a few concerns before camp.
If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, there’s a lot to talk about as training camp nears. How in the world are these rookies supposed to get ready for a regular-season campaign or even a preseason game with all of the adjustments that we’re expecting these NFL teams will need to make? No, wait. There may not be any preseason games to prepare for, so there’s that. It appears that we all can cancel those reps then, huh?
Then, there are the obvious things. Brandon Graham may be at the end of an unforgettable run in green. No one appears to be ready to fill in once he’s gone, especially not Derek Barnett, and we aren’t certain if Jalen Mills can take over at safety and produce at the level that Malcolm Jenkins did. Not only that, but isn’t Mills still listed on the team’s roster as a cornerback? Are they even thinking of moving him to the backend of the defense?
There are some very real and pressing issues surrounding this team as we near training camp, like whether or not T.J. Edwards is the man for the job at middle linebacker and, well, if he isn’t, who in the heck else does this team have that’s even remotely ready?
As difficult as all of that is to read (or hear) none of it made this list. Here are Philly’s top three concerns as training camp nears.
