Vikings quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater is expected to start training camp on the PUP list. Bridgewater suffered a knee injury towards the end of pre-season last year that kept him out for the entire season and the spring. He was able to get some workouts in without a knee brace a few weeks ago but he is very limited. The timetable for his return is currently unknown.
2017 fifth-round draft pick out of San Diego State, Donnel Pumphrey has impressed the Eagles coaching staff early on at mini-camp this spring. With Darren Sproles set to retire after this season, Pumphrey was brought on to be the future replacement for the veteran weapon. Pumphrey will be utilized more in the passing game, rather then the run game. There were reports of him taking reps at slot receiver during practice, making it clear that he will be used as a RB/WR hybrid come pre-season.
Former Kentucky shooting guard, Malik Monk was confirmed to have a private workout for the Sixers on Thursday at the teams practice facility. Monk had worked out for two other teams within the past week. Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo has scouted Monk a couple months ago and decided to bring him in for his own personal workout.
When Alshon Jeffery was added to the Eagles roster at the beginning of free agency, there were skeptical fans that Jeffery wasn’t a true number one receiver. So far during workouts this offseason, Carson Wentz and Jeffery have started to click during team drills. While Wentz’ throwing accuracy still may be slightly off, Jeffery has displayed ‘freakish’ effort and talent to make wild passes catchable.
Ryan Mathews’ days in Philadelphia are surely numbered. The big story during the offseason wasn’t if the Eagles were going to release Mathews, but when. After a short two-year stint with the Eagles, Mathews’ injuries have overshadowed his production, which convinced the team to search for replacements. Mathews’ absence from mandatory mini-camp confirms that his days on the Eagles roster have come to an end.
