Tuesday's autograph session – Defensive backs
PLAYS OF THE DAY ...
Wide receivers Greg Lewis, Jamal Jones and Jason Avant had impressive grabs in one-on-one sessions pitting wide receivers against defensive backs in this morning's practice.
On a sweep to the left, running back Lorenzo Booker wove in and out of defenders and broke multiple tackles on the way to the end zone for a 57-yard touchdown.
"I think that they (the coaches) are going to use Lorenzo in a big way," said running back Brian Westbrook in his press conference this morning. "From everything that I've seen he's a talented guy. He had a long run today that 11 people missed, and he scored a touchdown. He's a talented guy and as his teammate, you want to have the best 11 players on the field at a time. I'm happy to have him as a teammate."
Booker will also get his chance to shine on specials teams this season as the Eagles' kickoff returner.
"He's got really good speed up the field," said special teams coordinator Rory Segrest. "He can see the creases there. Same thing from a running back position, he knows how to read the scheme, he knows where to be and he's got the ability to get there."
