Notes From Philadelphia Eagles Training Camp Morning Walkthrough

Today, yours truly is at Philadelphia Eagles training camp as a member of the media.  I’ve been to camp numerous times before, but this is my first experience with media credentials. Therefore, I went to this morning’s walk-through practice not knowing exactly what to expect.  What I found (so far) is that everyone seems nice, helpful and informative. And that the Lehigh University...

DeSean Jackson throws punches at Eagles training camp

There is a reason that football players hate training camp. The intensity, the heat, and the pressure of most knowing that they are fighting for their professional lives. It gets to most players in the NFL at one point or another, even after they’ve signed a multimillion dollar deals. DeSean Jackson got into what was described as the “best fight of camp so far” with corner...

DeSean Jackson vomits during practice

Getty Images If an NFL player is going to throw at any point during their football career, the best time is during training camp, rather than a crucial game. Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson had trouble holding his lunch down during Friday’s practice. “We ran a lot. The heat,” Jackson said. “Gave it up a little bit, but it’s part of training camp.” I feel...

Oakland Raiders Still Have Two Unsigned NFL Draft Picks in Juron Criner and Tony Bergstrom

With the players starting to report to Oakland Raiders training camp tomorrow and practice beginning on Monday, two of their 2012 NFL Draft picks remain unsigned. It is a mystery why third round pick Tony Bergstrom and fifth round pick Juron Criner have yet to ink deals. With the NFL Draft pay scale, rookie contact values are all but determined as to where the player is picked...

Eagles, Mornhinweg like depth behind RB McCoy

The Eagles are committed to lightening the workload running back LeSean McCoy takes on this season. To do that, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and coach Andy Reid must identify a steady backup who they can trust on all downs. They'll also have to convince McCoy to accept a breather from time to time. "With our running back position, I think that (general manager...

Oakland Raiders sign third round pick Tony Bergstrom

The Oakland Raiders have signed third round NFL Draft selection Tony Bergstrom just in time for training camp. The Raiders will report to Napa, California today and begin training camp practice on Monday. Agreeing on a deal with Bergstrom ensures he will be at camp on time. Without a first or second round 2012 NFL Draft choice, Bergstrom was the first of six Raiders selections...

Castillo aims for better results in second season

Juan Castillo may have been the happiest person on the field when the Philadelphia Eagles held their offseason workouts. Castillo's transition to defensive coordinator after 13 years coaching the offense linemen didn't go so well last season. Castillo seemed overmatched at times. He had trouble making adjustments during games, his unit underachieved and he was heavily criticized...

Raiders open 1st camp under coach Dennis Allen

From the fast-paced practice that ran 21/2 hours to an emphasis on being on time to meetings to mandatory check-ins for meals, it's clear there's a new regime in charge of the Oakland Raiders at the start of training camp. After years of being plagued by a lack of discipline on and off the field, general manager Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen are putting their own...

Taking it in stream-of-consciousness style....Eagles TC, July 29, 2012.....

Watching the Olympics on NBC and the incessant overanalysis of the women's gymnastics events in particular, I decided to go to some stream-of-consciousness reporting on Eagles training camp...Maybe it's time to let the viewer (or reader) decide what he or she is actually witnessing...The window of opportunity has opened up at WR for rookie Marvin McNutt with the collarbone...

Al Davis’ obsession

Great news was announced on July 26, 2012 by the Oakland Raiders organization revealing that there will be tickets available for sale to fans on July 27th in order to see the Raiders training camp on August 3-5. This decision was a major coincidence due to my article being released on the same day before the decision [...]
