No Eagle has more to gain — or lose — in this training camp than cornerback Eric Rowe.
And yesterday’s practice gave the 2015 draft pick a great chance to impress D-boss Jim Schwartz:
Sam Bradford’s pass was underthrown. Wide receiver Chris Givens, streaking down the left sideline Friday, didn’t have a shot at it.
Rowe was streaking along with Givens until he saw the trajectory of the football. Rowe was able to adjust, and he settled under the ball for an easy interception.
It was the only interception by the Eagles defense in two days of full-squad practices at the NovaCare Complex. And that interception was made by a cornerback who appeared ready to disappear from the bottom of the depth chart.
Rowe, 23, was the Eagles’ second-round draft pick last year. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound cornerback played in all 16 games as a rookie. He got his first career interception in Week 3, when Rowe ran under a deep pass from New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
