Three things to know: Eagles training camp Day 7
1 August 2019 Eagles News
Today was a big day for the Philadelphia Eagles as today was their longest practice to date. The practice ran almost three hours. There was a lot of action, but we’re going to sum it up it the shortest way possible. Here’s today’s three biggest stories.
- Carlton Agudosi a red zone threat?
The 6”6” wide receiver has been killing it for the Eagles in the red zone. He caught two touchdowns today from quarterback Nate Sudfeld. At his height, the Eagles can definitely use him to their advantage.
Like everything that happens during training camp, you have to take it with a grain of salt. He is running with the second team offense, however, he’s still been a bright spot for the Eagles.
2. Miles Sanders is a stud
The rookie running back has impressed a lot this training camp and he’s shown he can be the Eagles lead running back. A few players and coaches have been outspoken about his play, most recently Brandon Graham. Graham saying, “That boy is a beast, you’ll see.”
The Eagles have used a running back by committee as of late, but with that being said, having a three down back is still key. Sanders looks the part and looks as if he’ll have a very successful career.
3. Rasul Douglas is having a camp!
One player always seizes the opportunity and earns himself a bigger role during training camp. If there’s one player this season for the Eagles, it’s Rasul Douglas. Today, he made numerous plays, most notably deflecting a ball out of the hands of wide receiver Nelson Agholor. He’s had himself a really good camp and is on his way for a bigger role this season for the Eagles.
It’s tough to squeeze today’s session into one three things to know piece, but those three topics are the most significant. Remember to stay tuned as the season draws nearer.
