EAGLES CAMP STARTS TODAY: DOUG PEDERSON FEELS ‘EXTREMELY SAFE’!

By Jack Ryan

The Eagles vets join the rooks today at NovaCare for the start of Eagles training camp, and coach Doug Pederson is feel reasonably good about the bizarre conditions imposed because of the pandemic:

“I feel extremely safe,” Pederson said, according to The Athletic.

“Obviously, coming into it, there might have been some skepticism about the testing and the screening that goes on, but it’s very thorough. When you’re here, you get tested in the morning, you have a screening process that you have to go through to get into the building; wearing masks in the building, everywhere we go, I feel extremely safe. This is our bubble right here at (the NovaCare Complex). I can’t control everything. We can’t control everything. There probably are going to be some things that come up down the road, but right now, I feel extremely safe and this is a great environment for our players to succeed in.”

Pederson has “hope” and “excitement” the league can exist in this environment.

“We understand that the virus is real, and we do everything we can in our powers to stay safe, protecting ourselves when we’re in the building, protecting our players, and it’s unfortunate what has happened,” Pederson said. “But we do have a lengthy set of protocols that we have to abide by, and this is our new normal right now, working in these conditions.”
