The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Monday that they have signed all of their draft picks from this year’s rookie class. From Jalen Reagor right the way through to Casey Toohill, the entire class is now officially on the books ahead of Training Camp.
Usually, this is just run-of-the-mill news, but what this means is that the players will be there for the commencing of Training Camp which is expected to be July 28th. For the rookies, they’re expected to report tomorrow, July 21st, which explains the timing.
The race back to normality is on and the Eagles have had no hiccups just yet when it comes to putting the right pieces in place for the players. The NovaCare Complex has been off limits to most for quite some time now, but it seems as though Camp will at least start in a very positive direction, with no holdouts from the rookies over legitimate safety concerns.
The Eagles usually unveil these signings around the time of rookie minicamp, which they were obviously stripped of this year. All draft picks will be able to get work in this week which is absolutely vital given the current landscape of the NFL and the fact that there might not even be a preseason. Football is officially back…almost.
