Saturday's practice times – 8:15 AM and 2:45 PM
NEW BIRD JOINS THE NEST ...
The Eagles today announced that they have placed guard Shawn Andrews on the Reserve/Did Not Report List. The team filled the roster spot vacated by Andrews by signing guard Cameron Stephenson.
Stephenson (6-3, 314) was originally drafted by Pittsburgh in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL draft with the 156th overall selection. He went on to spend the 2007 season on Green Bay's practice squad, only to be released earlier this week.
The Hawthorne, CA, native starred collegiately at Rutgers after spending two seasons at Los Angeles Harbor College. Stephenson earned all-conference honors as a defensive tackle at Harbor College, and played both offense and defense at Rutgers before settling in on the offensive line in 2006. He went on to earned second-team All Big East at guard that year. The 25-year-old was born in Sydney, Australia.
PLAY OF THE DAY ...
Quarterback Kevin Kolb connected with WR Reggie Brown on a 50-yard flea-flicker TD pass, one of a handful of impressive catches by Brown on the day.
This past offseason, Brown incorporated swimming into his workout regimen. He also used underwater boxing to help improve his hand speed which he feels will help him to get off the line of scrimmage in games.
