The Eagles' defense hasn't been very good at forcing turnovers lately. The last three years, they finished 23rd, 21st, and 24th in takeaways. Their eight interceptions last season equaled the fewest in franchise history.
PHILADELPHIA – Random thoughts after three days of Eagles camp... The NFL education of first-round pick DeVonta Smith got off to a slow start on Day 1 of camp having to go against Darius Slay. Since then, with Steve Nelson playing him, Smith has fared much better.
It’s a later start than usual due to the NFL’s league-wide “Training Camp: Back Together Saturday” event. Head coach Nick Sirianni will speak before practice around 5:05 PM. Some players will be made available to media after practice as well.
