Morning Roundup: Live Coverage Begins At Noon!

Welcome to the Morning Roundup presented by Microsoft. There's so much going on with the first practice taking place at the NovaCare Complex at noon let's get right into the action.

Get an inside look of the Philadelphia Eagles arriving for 2018 Training Camp.

1. Today's Schedule

The Eagles are on the practice field beginning at noon for a 10-10-10 session - (10 plays for the offense, 10 plays for the defense, repeated three times, with special teams having two 10-minute periods). Want to know the latest with Carson Wentz? Find out for yourself as we will bring you the start of practice live here and on our social media channels. Following the two-hour practice, head coach Doug Pederson will address the media which we will also bring to you live.

2. Inside The First Team Meeting

Dave Spadaro was inside the NovaCare Complex auditorium as Coach Pederson opened Training Camp on Wednesday.

"Day 1 of Training Camp is always a special occasion with the players and coaches excitedly reuniting after five weeks away. It is very much "go" time for the Eagles, but the truth is that the team has been focused with a turn-the-page mentality since the spring Organized Team Activities. On Wednesday, the energy bounced off the walls of the NovaCare Complex," Spadaro wrote. "This team has an air of confidence and camaraderie that comes after winning the Super Bowl, of largely being together for the past few seasons, and knowing, after seeing everything that happened last season and in the spring, just how special this season ahead can be."

5. State Of The Eagles

As the Eagles kick off camp, Tommy Lawlor offers his analysis of the State of the Eagles.

"Pederson is the right coach for this situation. He's naturally humble. Could you imagine Buddy Ryan if his Eagles had ever won the Super Bowl? The bragging and hyperbole would have been something straight out of pro wrestling," Lawlor wrote. "Pederson played for the 1996 Packers, who won the Super Bowl. The next year the team made it back to the big game and almost won again. He has seen up close and personal what it takes for a title team to stay at the top of the league."

7. Roster Move: Eagles Add Veteran Wide Receiver

The Eagles announced Wednesday the signing of 29-year-old wide receiver Kamar Aiken to a one-year deal.

The 6-2, 216-pound receiver has played 66 games in six NFL seasons, totaling 1,672 yards on 143 receptions and nine touchdowns in his career. In 15 games (seven starts) last season for the Indianapolis Colts, Aiken compiled 15 catches for 133 yards.

Here's an interesting note. Aiken was second on the Colts among wide receivers in special teams snaps last season. From a pass-catcher standpoint, the Eagles already have Alshon Jeffery, Mike Wallace, Nelson Agholor, and Mack Hollins returning and that doesn't include Zach Ertz or the team's top draft pick Dallas Goedert at tight end.

Looking for a connection? Aiken played in Baltimore when vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas and assistant director of player personnel Andy Weidl were with the team.
