News And Notes From First Day Of Practice

Upcoming Schedule: Wednesday's practice times - 8:45 AM, 3:30 PM

Former Eagle Flocks Back To The Nest ...

Former Eagles safety Rashard Cook has rejoined the team, this time as a training camp coaching intern. Cook spent four seasons with the Eagles from 1999-2002, and recorded two interceptions and three sacks in 47 games (3 starts). Cook, 31, spent his entire professional career in Philadelphia, although he was originally drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1999.

"Getting the experience I think is unlike any other internship or anything that you can find with any occupation," said Cook. "It's a great experience, real hands-on. You're here and you're just like a coach and you can really understand what it's like to be a coach in the NFL. They don't scale it back for us, we're right in there in the middle of everything, so you get the full effect of what it's like to be a coach."

Welcome Back ...

Eagle Joe! We'd like to welcome Eagle Joe Brown back for his 34th consecutive year at the Eagles' training camp.

Birdseed ...

With Monday's signing of defensive tackle Trevor Laws to a four-year contract, the Eagles have signed all ten draft picks, marking the second straight year that the Eagles have signed all of their draft picks before the start of camp.

Jackson ... The All-Around Athlete

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson also starred in baseball. He was drafted in the first round of the 2005 MLB draft (29th overall) by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Jackson was also ranked by Baseball America as the third-best all-around athlete in the Major League Baseball draft prospect pool in 2005, after hitting .380 with 20 stolen bases in his senior year of high school.
