Have you noticed? There’s a buzz surrounding this Philadelphia Eagles team.

We’ve crept under the seven-day threshold. Finally, it’s time to begin talking about realistic expectations for the Philadelphia Eagles during training camp.

It seems like it’s been forever since the time ran out on that rear-end whooping in Tampa, but following another Super Bowl that the Birds weren’t playing in, the 2021 Senior Bowl provided entertainment until the most recent NFL Scouting Combine rolled around and we watched a six-foot-six, 340-pound Jordan Davis run the 40-yard dash in 4.78 seconds.

Who knew, at that time, that we’d be discussing him joining the Eagles about two months later during the NFL Draft?

It seemed inconceivable that the Birds could land both Davis and Nakobe Dean on separate days, but Howie Roseman and his team made that happen. They also landed A.J. Brown via trade, James Bradberry in the middle of May, and Jaquiski Tartt in June.

It’s been fun watching the process, and who knew? If you were starved for on-field football and decided to check the USFL out, there were some competitive games there too. The Philadelphia Stars even made it to the championship game.

All of that’s behind us now. Here’s the best news we’ve heard all month. Veterans and rookies report to the NovaCare Complex on July 26th. The first public practice is scheduled for August 7th. Game one of the preseason is scheduled for August 12th. Here are the rest of the particulars.
