Interesting to note, out of all the 1st and 2nd year talent coming to camp for the Eagles this summer, Pro Football Focus chose to put a spotlight on wideout Damaris Johnson as the player with the biggest upside in the Chippa's new system.

The article is by John Breitenbach and he makes a pretty convincing case for why we (or at least I) may have been underrating "DJ Lite" as a potential big-play contributor in 2013 from the slot receiver position.
One thing I overlooked apparently is the ability of Damaris to block downfield. Receivers who can block are a big deal in Kelly's offense. Breitenbach says Damaris is a much better blocker than DJax or Maclin....and on a par with Avant in blocking ability.
"If practices are anything to go by, then the receivers will have to block if they are to play. That spells trouble f...

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick has made it clear in recent days that it would be his preference to have a starter named before the start of training camp. And though perhaps it would have been best for him to keep this thought to himself, you can’t really blame him for feeling that way. Who wouldn’t want to have certainty about their job status heading into camp?

During a recent interview, Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson became the latest NFL player to question Tim Tebow's ability.
Michael Vick fired the first salvo last week when he admitted his frustration with the Eagles quarterback depth chart, and simply asked head coach Chip Kelly to name a quarterback before camp starts.

Jackson was on NFL Network promoting his new documentary, and told the panel that Tebow “is not good enough to be an NFL quarterback.”
