The Eagles' offseason program begins on Monday, marking the start of a busy two months on the league calendar. The draft and organized team activities are quickly approaching.
Monday is what the NFL considers phase one, which lasts two weeks with activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation. Attendance is voluntary. Some of the Eagles have been training at the NovaCare Complex on an informal basis, but Monday is the beginning of the official program.
Eagles guard Evan Mathis, a Pro Bowl player who would like a new contract, is expected to report to the voluntary workouts.
In phase two of the offseason program, the following three weeks will involve on-field workouts. They are limited to individual player instruction and the team practicing on a separate basis, meaning the offense and the defense cannot drill against each other. No live contact is permitted.
