#AskAnEagle: WR Russell Shepard

Rookie wide receiver Russell Shepard is not only a hard worker (his daily routine includes catching 100 balls from the jug machine, rain or shine), but also an avid tweeter at @LSUShep10. He took over the @Eagles Twitter account yesterday afternoon to answer fan questions during the first #AskAnEagle of Philadelphia Eagles Training Camp presented by Sports Authority.
