STARTING in 1975, it just wasn't an Eagles practice without Joe Brown standing on the sidelines. Even in recent years, when he was legally blind, Joe would be there, always treated with respect and consideration by coaches and players alike. His friendly, outgoing personality endeared Joe to everyone he met, on the field and off. Joe died Sunday at age 62. He lived in Exton. "Training camp will not be the same without Eagle Joe," said head coach Andy Reid. "He was a fixture at our practices every summer for many, many years.

THE EAGLES are well aware that they haven't done this before. Team president Don Smolenski was describing for reporters Thursday some of the changes to the layout at Nova-Care, where about 300 to 400 invited fans will watch training camp, and at Lincoln Financial Field, where the Birds will hold five free public practices for which they have already distributed more than 200,000 tickets, Smolenski said. "We didn't know what to expect with the tickets. It's exciting to see it grow, literally on a daily basis.

The Independence is conducting camp at the United Sports Training Center in Downingtown.

Center Scott Laughton seemed out of place doing drills with Sam Dove-McFalls, David Kase, and Travis Konecny, among others, during the Flyers' development camp Thursday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. The latter three players, all 18 years old, were selected in the NHL draft last month. Laughton, at 21, is in his fourth development camp since he was a first-round pick (20th overall) in 2012. "I feel like the old guy here a little bit," Laughton, who appears more physically fit than last year, said with a smile.

THERE'S ONLY so much new Flyers coach Dave Hakstol can see when he looks at video from last season. That's not an indictment of how poorly the Flyers played; it's more about Hakstol's method of evaluation. And if Hakstol isn't forming opinions of returning players based on their play on a television screen, there will be a whole lot of healthy competition when the team hits the ice at training camp. "You can overanalyze things," Hakstol said. "I'll be blunt. That's why I think I want to be careful about how much video [I watch]

The Eagles reported for the offseason program on April 20. That was before the Marcus Mariota fantasies faded, before LeSean McCoy finished airing his grievances, and before Chip Kelly released Evan Mathis. Their final practice of the spring came Thursday. Ninety players trained in a drizzle, sat through a final team meeting, and went their separate ways for summer vacation. They won't return for another six weeks, with the first training camp practice on Aug. 2. "Our biggest strength is that we have six weeks before training camp, and our biggest weakness is that we have six weeks before training camp," Kelly said.

CHIP KELLY made the annual, ceremonial declaration common to all coaches, that no hard and fast conclusions should emerge from the Eagles' spring work. Yesterday's bit of cautionary Kelly boilerplate might be more accurate than usual this year, given the long list of new starters we haven't seen in pads yet, and the fact that the presumed No. 1 quarterback, Sam Bradford, has yet to throw in an 11-on-11 session. "It's a lot of new people coming into the fold right now, but chemistry is going to come," cornerback Byron Maxwell said.

Before Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford even answered a question Tuesday, he confessed that he does not know when he will be fully healthy. However, even though Bradford is not yet participating in 11-on-11 drills during minicamp this week, he made it clear that he plans to take part in full-team work when training camp opens Aug. 2. "If I'm not ready for 11-on-11 by training camp, then I think something has gone terribly wrong," Bradford said....

Sam Bradford's progress is measured in increments this time of year. The Eagles quarterback took part in only individual drills during the first week of organized team activities. He mixed in two seven-on-seven drills in the second week. The third week started Monday and Bradford added a few more snaps to his workload. He still wears a bulky brace on his left knee. He's still not as healthy as the other quarterbacks on the Eagles' roster. But Bradford remains on schedule - even if that schedule does not have a firm date for rejoining the team as a full participant.

TAKING COMMAND of a group that hasn't seen you lead it through a game - or even a practice - can be tricky, Sam Bradford acknowledged. "It is a little bit difficult," the Eagles quarterback said yesterday, after again throwing in seven-on-seven sessions during OTAs. Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow quarterbacked for all the full-team reps. "Yeah, I wish I were out there taking every rep. I think it'd make it a little easier to take on that leadership role and develop some of those relationships.

Nolan Carroll's climb to the top of the cornerback depth chart shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who watched him break up pass after pass last spring. Despite a strong period that carried into training camp, Carroll fell short of supplanting incumbent starters Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams last season. In retrospect, giving Fletcher the nod over Carroll may have been the most costly decision of the Eagles' playoff-less 2014. The starting position opposite prized free agent Byron Maxwell is clearly open this year, and through the first month of spring workouts, Carroll has made it difficult for defensive coordinator Bill Davis to overlook him again.

REPORTERS GET their first look today at the 2015 Eagles, when the team briefly opens up organized team activities, as mandated by NFL access rules. Chip Kelly is scheduled to speak, for the first time since the draft wrapup, nearly four weeks ago. Then, reporters will watch workouts, and when the players come off the field this afternoon, everyone is slated to be available, more or less at once, something that will happen only three more times before training camp begins, at the end of July.

After five months of turbulence in which the front office was turned upside down, the roster dismantled and reassembled, Chip Kelly is lifting the curtain on the 2015 Eagles and finally opening practice to the media Thursday. But the star acquisition of the offseason is not expected to be on stage at the NovaCare Complex. Quarterback Sam Bradford has been limited throughout spring workouts and has not been participating in team drills during this week's organized team activities, NFL sources said.
