Takeaways and observations from Eagles 2nd joint practice with Browns

The Eagles wrapped up two days of joint practices against the Browns on Friday, and both teams will have Saturday off before a preseason matchup on Sunday.

Based on videos and up-to-the-minute reports, Philadelphia won the two-day affair, with Jalen Hurts likely the biggest winner from the two-day joint sessions against a solid Browns defense.

The Eagles defense was active at all three levels, with Haason Reddick and Josh Sweat highlighting an
athletic and improved pass rush.

Here are the top takeaways and observations from joint practice No. 2.

The former Utah wide receiver was a training camp darling but has had an up and down two days of joint sessions with the Browns defense.

The former USC star continues to shine in training camp, and it appears he’s an excellent candidate to make the 53-man roster.

A former safety and edge rusher at Kansas, Johnson is slowly improving at the SAM linebacker spot, and his two days against the Browns follow a solid special team showing against the Jets.

Reddick’s role is gaining some clarity, and even after the conversation about the pass rusher dropping into coverage, he’ll do what he does best.

The ‘Weapon’ terrorized the Browns over two days, and he’s clearly ready for double-digits sacks in Philadelphia.

Myles Garrett returned

Akr 8 5 Browns 6

Cleveland’s top pass rusher returned for the final day of joint sessions, and Garrett helped Jordan Mailata get better.

Philadelphia’s left tackle and Garrett had an intense one-on-one session but had a good conversation afterward.

There was no Denzel Ward during the team and 7-on-7, but Jalen Hurts still had a good day against a solid Browns defense.

In what will likely be the norm, Brown had his way with Browns’ defenders.

Lost in all the A.J. Brown talk, Goedert is also having a dominant camp and should have a 1,000-yard receiving season.
