While we breathlessly await even the minutest of details at Philadelphia Eagles OTAs, the reality is there is only so much to glean from players practicing in shorts and T-shirts. There’s no contact allowed during this phase of the offseason program, so roster battles won’t truly begin to play out until training camp and the preseason are underway.
