10 takeaways from the Eagles’ spring practices

From The Eagles. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Eagles are going to contend in 2018. I know, I know, I’m really going out on a limb here. The roster is deep with young talent. The high-end talent is as good as any in the league, starting at the quarterback position. Head coach Doug Pederson managed his weary veterans in the spring and they will come back fresh in the summer for Training Camp and the preseason. Other than losing linebacker Paul Worrilow with a knee injury, it was a pretty terrific spring for the Eagles, who finished their mandatory minicamp last week and now are...
