  Les Bowen: Bradford makes more sense Unless you are hatching a NovaCare coup that would oust Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman, who plan to start Sam Bradford at quarterback this season, it would make no sense to give the majority of Eagles training-camp reps to Carson Wentz. It might make some sense to give the second overall pick in this year's draft more reps early on than a third quarterback would normally get, but I'm pretty sure the other players want to make sure their starting QB is ready.

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.

Stephen Tulloch will sign a one-year deal with the Eagles, a league source confirmed Sunday. The veteran linebacker provides much-needed depth to the middle of the Eagles' defense, and arrives with a background in defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's scheme. Tulloch, 31, will receive a contract worth up to $3 million with $1.75 million guaranteed, per the source. The move is not yet official, but Tulloch's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, confirmed the signing on Twitter. The interest between the veteran and the team has been reported for weeks, and the Eagles' need at the position only grew after rookie Joe Walker tore his anterior cruciate ligament last Thursday.

In less than six weeks, the 76ers will begin what can accurately be called their most anticipated training camp since Allen Iverson's distaste for poom-poom pants became public knowledge. It's no wonder why. This will be a different team and a different season, tank-free. Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and Dario Saric will be making their NBA debuts. Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel, the two big men who may or may not be part of the team's long-term future, have a chance to show how much they've strengthened the deficiencies in their games or whether they've strengthened them at all. Coach Brett Brown will finally have some seasoned veterans - Jerryd Bayless, Gerald Henderson, Sergio Rodriguez - to add to his regular rotation of players.

LANE JOHNSON said he hasn't thought yet about where he'll go, what he'll do. Suspended players can't enter the practice facility or speak with coaches. Two years ago, during his first suspension, Johnson Skyped and texted with then-offensive linemate Todd Herremans, who isn't here anymore. For now, just having to make it through practice, knowing he is unlikely to play a real game before Nov. 28, takes pretty much everything Johnson has. "Mentally, it's probably the toughest thing, when you're going to be out there going through the motions, and you're not going to be (starting the season)

The Eagles continue to miss starting linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who has been out since last Monday with a hamstring injury. Coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that he expected Kendricks back at practice by the weekend, but Kendricks was absent both Saturday and Sunday. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said the team does not want to rush Kendricks back to the field. "Mychal is a very, very conscientious player and he works very hard off the field," Schwartz said. "So he's getting all the mental reps and he's staying up and he's asking a lot of questions.

With applause percolating throughout the stadium, Carson Wentz extended his right thumb into the air when he entered the Eagles' 17-9 preseason win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers late in the first half on Thursday. It could have been interpreted as a gesture expressing approval to the fans cheering him. Except that's not what it was. "It was thumbs-up to Coach," Wentz said, referring to Doug Pederson. "He was asking if I could hear him. Probably not as cool as you thought it was. " When it comes to Wentz, myth-making could be an easy trap.

One minute, Penn State's Nyeem Wartman-White was resembling a human wrecking ball at his new position - middle linebacker - in the 2015 season opener against Temple with family and friends in the seats and thinking about how much he could accomplish the rest of the season. The next minute, he was lying on the grass at Lincoln Financial Field, knowing something had gone wrong while running downfield on punt coverage and hoping that he had just tweaked his knee. The injury, however, turned out to be a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, meaning he would be out the rest of the season.

The calls for Carson Wentz came in the first half of the Eagles' preseason opener Thursday night from fans who endured a 100-degree heat index in Philadelphia to catch their first glimpse of the Eagles' future franchise quarterback. "We want Wentz! We want Wentz! We want Wentz!" The original plan was to keep them waiting until the start of the second half, but coach Doug Pederson altered course and sent Wentz onto the field to run a two-minute drill with 79 seconds remaining in the second quarter.

With one week of training camp in the books, Penn State coach James Franklin said Wednesday that the two quarterbacks who are up for the starting job are involved in a "heated battle" but that neither one has pulled away. "It's hard to say, to be honest with you," Franklin told reporters after practice Wednesday when asked whether he was closer to deciding on a starter. "It all depends on the practice. I don't think we're closer to making a decision than we were before. " The candidates are redshirt sophomore Trace McSorley, who saw his only playing time in last January's TaxSlayer Bowl after Christian Hackenberg suffered an injury, and redshirt freshman Tommy Stevens, who has yet to see any action in a college football game.

Eric Rowe's teammates kept reminding him to be ready, and he thought he was until that Thanksgiving afternoon in Detroit when Nolan Carroll left with a broken ankle. Rowe, a rookie cornerback who spent a lot of time playing safety during his college career at Utah, was not just thrown into the pool. He was shoved into the deepest end with anchors on each of his legs. That is what it must have felt like to Rowe when he lined up across from Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson for his first extended playing time in the NFL. "That was definitely a lesson," Rowe said after a recent practice at the NovaCare Complex.

DOUG PEDERSON remembers his first NFL preseason game, as a rookie quarterback. "It was late in the fourth quarter, and I knelt down three times. Three knees, in Miami," Pederson recalled recently. "Dan Marino, Scott Secules and Scott Mitchell were the three" quarterbacks ahead of Pederson on the depth chart that 1991 training camp, he said. Mitchell was the up-and-coming QB who got most of the work that night. Pederson, then an undrafted rookie from northeast Louisiana, wasn't facing great expectations.
