With another busy day for the Philadelphia Eagles, there is much to catch up on. More rumors have swirled, and the Eagles are a day closer to trading Kevin Kolb. The Eagles started training camp today as well, and Andy Reid had some words as to what the plans are for the organization.
On the subject of Kevin Kolb, talks have progressed with the Arizona Cardinals to the point where a deal could be struck within the next 24-36 hours. The deal will likely be for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a draft pick. The Eagles are rumored to be asking for a first, and the Cardinals are trying to make it a second or third round pick.
During Andy Reid’s press conference, he did not reveal much information, in fact, virtually none. However, he did share that the starting right tackle will be Winston Justice depending on his knee. He also said that the right guard will be Danny Watkins when ready, and the Center will be Jamaal Jackson.
When asked about Kevin Kolb and DeSean Jackson, Reid said that “we’ll see how things go here”. He also said that he has talked to Jackson, but will not reveal what was discussed.
When asked who the right cornerback would be, Reid responded, “I’m not going to tell you”.
On behalf of training camp, the plan that Reid has laid out is to have mornings be learning sessions, and the afternoons to be physical. Also, the first three days will be “ramp up days”.
Changing directions, the Eagles have signed all their draft picks besides first round pick Danny Watkins and seventh round picks Greg Lloyd, and Stanley Havili. This means that Jaiquawn Jarrett and Casey Matthews who may play vital roles this season will be available for training camp tomorrow.
Ray Edwards appeared on 97.5 The Fanatic and claimed that he hasn’t been in contact with his agent and has no clue whether the Eagles have contacted him or not. You can hear the interview here.
The Eagles may be after linebacker Stephen Tulloch according to Adam Caplan via his twitter account.
An unconfirmed source has stated that the Eagles may be in pursuit of Vince Young and that they have received permission to speak to his agent.
Jason Babin was on Pro Football Talk live today and discussed possible destinations. He said that the Eagles are one of three teams that contacted him that he has interest in. Babin played with the Eagles in 2009, and last year had a breakout season with the Titans. His defensive line coach, Jim Washburn, whom Babin gives all the credit for the turn-around, is now the Eagles defensive line coach.
