Eagles Have Landed in San Diego
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - The Eagles have landed. ...in San Diego.
Led by presumptive starting quarterback Sam Bradford, a host of Philadelphia players have assembled in Southern California this week for a loose passing camp/camaraderie vacation to bridge the remaining weeks of the offseason with the beginning of training camp later this month.
Bradford is joined by running backs Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews, who both live in the area and are former Chargers, as well as receivers Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff, T.J. Graham and Rueben Randle, and tight end Zach Ertz. Bradford's backups, veteran Chase Daniel and rookie No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz, are also on hand
Also expected to join the party at some point are right tackle Lane Johnson and receiver Chris Givens, who both claimed they would be attending during offseason work.
Agholor's presence is a bit of a surprise because he is still dealing with sexual-assault allegations stemming from his visit to a South Philadelphia strip club hours after the Eagles finished their mandatory minicamp last month.
Matthews, however, has indicated the second-year receiver is in San Diego through various social media posts.
