Day 1C

Monday was reporting day for the Eagles’ rookies and select veterans. There was no practice, just meetings and conditioning tests in the afternoon.

Michael Vick was in the building. So was Nick Foles, tight fade and all. The quarterback competition has begun. But don’t forget to include Matt Barkley in there too. He made that perfectly clear on Day 1.

Check out some of the footage taken during the first two days of Eagles training camp in South Philadelphia:
