Linebacker Nigel Bradham found himself in trouble with the law during the down time between minicamp and training camp, a down time that arrived Thursday when the Birds wrapped up their minicamp and headed their separate ways.

The players for the most part talked about staying in shape and getting into their playbooks.

"We're right there with them", Peters said. "It speaks volumes for them to still look at me that way, it's nothing but love". Don't lose sight of that.

There is a good chance that this will be the last contract for Peters, who said on Tuesday that he wanted to retire with the Eagles and have that security as his career winds down.

The Eagles are hoping their off-season workouts served as the first step towards improvement in 2017. Perhaps it was something that affected his training camp, which in turn led to a bad season. "That was encouraging to see and see them kind of nurture that throughout the entire off-season...come together as a family". I'm sure Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is definitely happy the deal got done. Both of 2016 starting corners, Nolan Carroll and Leodis McKelvin, are gone, and the most acclaimed talent added to the unit so far is second-round draft pick Sidney Jones, who is recovering from Achilles' tendon surgery and won't take the field before September. And summertime in North Dakota is just fine, according to Wentz. Like I said, Mr. Lurie, I think he's in Europe somewhere, he stood up for me and got the deal done. You don't want to be doing anything that can disrupt not only what we're trying to build here, but you're representing yourself, your family and your name'. During these off-season programs in camp, you never really get to hang out with anyone because everything is so football focused. I think the ball was out of bounds where he couldn't catch it. The next time the Eagles take the field will be for training camp in just over five weeks.

The safety, who was a finalist for the Hall of Fame past year, finished his career in Denver, and there were plenty of hard feelings between Dawkins and the organization.

"If you're where you should be, you're committed to thinking about training camp", the veteran defensive end said. "So it's getting the amount of rest that you need but also preparing your mind and body for that grind so that you can come in shape, come with the right mindset". It's a long season.

Asked to comment as his players get ready to depart Philadelphia on Thursday, Pederson admitted some trepidation this time around.

I don't think it's been quite where we want to be.
