Whenever you decide to spend the rest of your life self-identifying as a Philadelphia Eagles fan, you just know that certain things are par for the course. There will be ups and downs (and sometimes it will feel like the low points come more often). There will never be a shortage of storylines.

One of which and probably the one that’s most important this season is trying to figure out what the Philadelphia Eagles will look like under first-year and first-time head coach Nick Sirianni. Here are two others, one of which you may have missed.

Don’t beat yourself up too badly. It’s been a long week for all of us.

The first Thursday of May was an interesting day for all of us. While we all tried to transition back to work after Cinco De Mayo, if you celebrate, Thanks to a report by Field Yates, we learned that Howie Roseman and the Birds were trying to claim former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Matt Cole off of waivers.

Philly didn’t get him. Instead, he landed with former Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel and current New York Jets G.M. Joe Douglas. Cole has yet to register his first reception in the NFL.

The Birds would land Kerryon Johnson a day later. He’s a five-foot-eleven and 211-pound running back that Philly hopes is more high reward than low risk.

Here are some dates to know if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

As most of you know, the NFL is set to release its 2021 regular-season schedule on Wednesday, May 12th. There isn’t a fan of this team or a fan of the other 31 NFL teams that won’t be paying close attention when that happens.

Also, as you know, the Eagles and so many other NFL franchises have decided collectively to skip voluntary team workouts due, in large part, to the continuing concerns about COVID-19. On May 6th, the NFL announced workout schedules for all 32 franchises. If you’re a Birds fan, here’s how that looks.

Don’t forget about the Eagles’ Mandatory Minicamp. That runs from June 8th through June 10th. Mark those calendars if you’re a fan.
