Starting Quarterback – Again, Pederson made it very clear that Sam Bradford is the starting quarterback.
Putting on the Pads – The Eagles will practice with pads for the first time next Saturday.
Work To Do On Wentz – Pederson said he and his coaches need to get Wentz starter-ready, which means they want to develop to point where they’re not concerned about him taking over the starting job. They want him in position where if there’s injury, they can just plug him in to play without worrying about what he’s going to do. The Birds head coach said that Wentz knows he isn’t ready yet and needs to work on a few things. They want him in position where if there’s injury at the quarterback position.
Nelson Agholor Arrest – Pederson said he hasn’t spoken to wide receiver Nelson Agholor since he was accused of rape.
The Quarterback Rotation – Early in camp the 2’s and 3’s will get a lot of work, it will gradually change so that at the end the starters are getting most of the work.
On Carson Wentz: “He came in ready to go. You love everything about this kid, His energy, his work ethic. There’s just little detail things he needs to work on his footwork his drop, his progression and his eyes. He came back with the right frame of mind. We’re going to get him where he needs to be.”
On Sam Bradford: “Welcomed him back, congratulated him. He left this spring playing extremely good football. He picked up today where he left off. Looking forward to these next couple of weeks while leading up to these games.
On Cornerbacks: “There’s great depth with the addition of Jalen Mills breing some good completion there. You’ve got Ron Brooks over there. Nolan is coming off the injury and I expect him to compete at that spot. Eric Rowe is part of the depth we had there. He’s a big kid who we look forward to seeing grow.”
