Secondary Stands Out

ITB: Intel Gathered from Mandatory Minicamp


The Philadelphia Eagles are in the midst of their most intense offseason program in several years, holding a mandatory minicamp for the first time in the Nick Sirianni era.

On the latest episode of “Inside The Birds,” Geoff Mosher and Adam Caplan provided intel on the team’s recent practices.

Geoff Mosher: “I was told there has not been great quarterback play from top to bottom so far. No one said that in a panic mode, it has just been inconsistent.”

Adam Caplan: “The term I was told is not crisp at all, total growing pains. It is a completely new scheme, not even close to the one Sirianni runs. The language is different, it is going to take time. I am not worried about it…this offense is so quarterback friendly.”

Wide Receivers

Mosher: “The Eagles may have the best wide receiver tandem in the NFL…Everybody knows that there has to be a third person who steps up. You may hear about John Ross catching a pass or Parris Campbell, but from the feedback I am getting they know they need a third person.”

Caplan: “Parris, barring a negative miracle, is going to be on the team. They have no depth at receiver. Johnny Wilson has ability, he has to put it all together. (Joseph) Ngata is just not good enough.”

Offensive Line

Mosher: “The Eagles have a lot of guys who are candidates to impress themselves as guards, but you look at tackle and they are great with (Jordan) Mailata and Lane Johnson, but it gets pretty thin after that.”


Caplan: “Nakobe Dean is running with the second team coming back from a major injury. He is healthy now and having to make up for lost time with conditioning so he is running second team. Zack Baun is bigger, a very unique linebacker, a little bigger than they typically are in the NFL.”

Mosher: “This is a spot where the Eagles are really looking to see people develop and step up. Zack Baun is an interesting name, but he has not played a whole lot on defense in general in the NFL. They are just seeing what he can do.”


Mosher: “The secondary has been the standout. They have some young and interesting names.”

Caplan: “Quinyon Mitchell looks smooth, they do not want to overwhelm him because this is a new system for him. (Isaiah) Rodgers looks good, they needed to know where he is at. (Kelee) Ringo has had a good offseason, what that will end up meaning we are going to learn. Eli Ricks was a good story, but is about how they think he fits in. The fact that he is running third team kind of tells you where that thing is heading.”
