  1. The Secondary

With the exception of the one preseason game, where the secondary did not impress, the players have been playing defense on their teammates. The chance to run the drills against other players will keep them on their toes.

The quarterbacks may or may not truly test the secondary. Mark Sanchez and Sam Bradford have the most experience among the five quarterbacks on the Eagles’ roster.

Wide receiver Austin Miles should keep the Ravens’ secondary on their toes, along with Riley Cooper. Cornerback Kyle Arrington and safety Will Hill can benefit a lot from the change in scenery against the receivers.

Tim Tebow may even present the defense with a different type of quarterback to play defense against. The secondary, especially the younger players, should use these joint practices to tone their skills against players they are not as familiar with.

If safety Terrence Brooks practices with the Eagles, the joint practice could help him catch up after missing training camp up until Tuesday. He came off the PUP (physically unable to perform) list Tuesday and practiced with the Ravens for the first time.
