We’ve reached the end of July. That means it’s full steam ahead toward Philadelphia Eagles training camp. Here’s the good news. There are no contract disputes or holdouts to discuss. That means everyone’s present and accounted for.
Here’s the bad news. Technically, they aren’t 100 percent healthy. Once things get rolling, tight end Tyree Jackson and offensive lineman Brett Toth will be placed on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. Philly has also, as of the first day of camp, announced that they’ve made the decision to waive undrafted rookie Noah Elliss due to a non-football injury.
Wide receiver Josh Hammond was waived as well, and that’s actually good news for him. Being released early could allow him the opportunity to catch on somewhere and make another team’s roster if he’s acquired by someone.
The Philadelphia Eagles make two additions on day one of camp as well.
The Philadelphia Eagles have been busy since returning to the NovaCare Complex. The news of Kobe Smith’s addition began circulating earlier in the day on Tuesday before the Birds made an official announcement via the official team website and their Twitter account shortly before 5 p.m. EST on the East Coast.
Smith is a six-foot-two, 300-pounder that actually already owns a Super Bowl ring thanks to spending time on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster. To get the training camp roster back to 90 men, it’s been reported by Tim McManus that Philadelphia is also expected to add a tight end, Jaeden Graham, to the nest.
He’s a product of Yale that was signed by the Atlanta Falcons coming out of college. In 32 career games, he’s hauled in 12 of 15 targets. Eight of those receptions have moved the chains by resulting in first downs. He has one career touchdown on his professional resume, but here’s the thing.
He hasn’t played since the 2020 NFL season. Things are getting interesting.
