Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Article on ESPN about the eagles training camp. Lists the biggest surprise thus far in camp as none other than Brandon Graham. Not an eagles fan but I'm excited to watch him play this year, hopefully he keeps it up.
Here's the link;
Comparisons to Dwight Freeney. Enjoy...
I guess the market was set enough for Brandon Graham to sign his contract in time to make camp.
If there is a cloud over the start of camp, it is that neither first-round pick Brandon Graham nor second-round pick Nate Allen was signed as of late Monday night and while Reid indicated that he thought Allen was closer to signing than was Graham, there was still no word late into the darkness. Both players need to be at camp. Both players are expected to help the team this year. Every day that goes by without them will be a day of concern.
But those deals will get done in time, hopefully sooner rather than later. The NFL needs to do something with this system, but that's another story for another day. What we're talking about here is making sure two young players are as prepared as possible to help this football team. Missing practices doesn't help Graham or Allen, or the Eagles.
What are you're thoughts? I understand why it is done. Just wish teams and agents could be more efficient.
So much for #55. This will take some getting used to.
