PHILADELPHIA ( – Fargo isn’t the summer destination of choice for most but the tourism numbers are up a bit this week as a number of Eagles players will be arriving to get in some extra work with second-year quarterback Carson Wentz.

Wentz, a North Dakota native, invited his core group of receivers to the Midwest to work on chemistry and camaraderie before training camp begins in two weeks.

Alshon Jeffery, the team’s key free-agent signing in the offseason, Nelson Agholor, who is trying to build on an impressive spring, as well as Torrey Smith and rookie receiver Shelton Gibson, had their presence confirmed through social media.

Others who told they were planning to attend earlier this offseason include tight ends Zach Ertz and Trey Burton, as well as receiver Jordan Matthews.
