Either somebody in this story is lying, or this is just ridiculous. The Eagles finally got together as a full team today to start their OTA’s as a full unit.
Fourth round pick and former USC star Matt Barkley got the chance to meet all of his new teammates. Something hilarious happened throughout the day according to Les Bowens of the Philadelphia Daily News.
According to Bowens LeSean McCoy had been calling Matt Barkley, “Mark,” for some time.
LeSean McCoy has been calling Matt Barkley “Mark.” Thought that was his name, until reporters corrected him. “He never said anything.”

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed RB Felix Jones to a one-year deal. It’s not a big risk and the Eagles are very familiar with Jones having played with him in the same division.
