EAGLES ROOKIE MINICAMP KICKS OFF TODAY AT NOVACARE

By Peter Gleason

And so the seemingly endless NFL scheduling machine takes another turn today.

The Eagles added eight new draft picks to their roster through the 2016 NFL Draft and 16 more rookies via undrafted free agency. These rookies have arrived and will officially hit the practice fields today.

A total of 55 players will participate in Eagles rookie minicamp, including 26 tryout players. Tryout players obviously do not count against the 90 man roster as they are not under contract. Four first-year players will also be in attendance. Three of these players spent the 2015 season on the Birds’ practice squad. One includes 2015 sixth round pick Randall Evans.
