Veterans report to Eagles training camp on Wednesday but all this week, the rookies and select veterans (including the team’s quarterbacks) have been at it preparing for the 2012 season. A few notes:
-Corner Cliff Harris is impressing. On Monday he had two picks and broke up a pass from Mike Vick during a 7 -on-7 scrimmage. Overall, reports are that the secondary is putting in a solid performance.
-LB Mychal Kendricks adds to the reasons to be excited about Philadelphia’s linebackers corps this season. Per CSNPhilly on two great plays on Tuesday:

Now while these upgrades might not have you...
They must have put something in the water down in Philadelphia, because the Eagles are dishing out some crazy talk. A week after Michael Vick said he believes the Eagles "have a chance to develop a dynasty," running back LeSean McCoy echoed his quarterback's sentiments, saying it's possible and that it's "just a matter of going out and performing."...
Michael Vick burned all his owners last season, including me. But it’s a new year and Mike has another opportunity to prove his critics wrong. The studs are set. Rodgers, Brady and Brees have played themselves into a separate category. They’re goin’ after the tier one running backs are selected. Then who? Well Reid’s strategy remains pass oriented.

Current Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek is beloved amongst fans and rightfully so. Celek is one of the best—though underrated—tight ends in the NFL.
