As Philadelphia Eagles training camp continues, the contenders and pretenders for roster spots are starting to separate themselves a bit. Nothing is settled yet, of course, but there are a few new players who have a legitimate chance of making this team.
By new players, I'm not referring to any of the Eagles' draft picks because, with the exception of the late-round picks, they are all virtual locks for the roster. Instead, I'm talking about undrafted free-agent rookies as well as first-year guys and veteran additions this offseason.

Right now, there is some excellent competition at Lehigh. Once the preseason games start, players will have an even better chance at separating themselves from the pack and earning a spot on the 53-man roster.
