DeVonta Smith among four veterans not in attendance for Day 2 of Eagles’ OTAs

DeVonta Smith is preparing for his second annual Celebrity Softball game , and with last minutes details needing to be addressed, the Eagles star was absent from Day 2 of OTAs.

OTAs are voluntary, and Smith is a year away from any new contract discussions, so it’s an absence that shouldn’t be that big of a deal.

He wasn’t the only player to miss Thursday’s workouts, with Lane Johnson, Fletcher Cox, and Brandon Graham also not in attendance.

Cox arrived on Tuesday for the first session, telling the media that he “likes to pop his head in” while maintaining his professionalism.
