This is the fifth in a series of training camp previews. The previews give you a quick look at each team, going over position battles and injuries to watch in camp. And for this season, all training camps will open at the same time with the exception of three teams. Camp will open Tuesday, July 27 for 29 of the 32 NFL teams. The Steelers and Cowboys will open July 21 because they play in the preseason Hall of Fame Game. And lastly, the Bucs got an exemption to open early because they have the first game of the regular season on a Thursday night. Tampa gets their camp started July 24. The season is right around the corner.
The Eagles had a really disappointing season last year, going 4-11-1. The big issue was an inconsistent offense. Philadelphia has handed the keys over to Jalen Hurts, getting rid of Carson Wentz. Hurts is going to be the focus of this training camp. He is going to be the “x” factor. If he can play at a high level, the Eagles could be a dangerous team this season. Hurts and his teammates train at the Philadelphia Eagles NovaCare Training Complex in Philadelphia, Pa.
