  1. The Wide Receivers

With the receiver battle one of the most watched, how they handle a new group of defenders is going to be interesting. After a less-than-stellar performance against the New Orleans Saints, rookies Darren Waller and Jeremy Butler could use the joint practices to help improve their play.

The practice may help them prepare better for their second preseason game. With the injuries occurring to the other receivers, the younger ones need to take full advantage of the situation given to them.

The joint practices will help the younger receivers break up the pattern regular practices bring and help keep them on their toes.

They are young receivers who are going to benefit from a joint practice because they are not seeing the same players every day. It will be very interesting to see how the receivers respond to being covered by the Eagles’ defenders during a practice.

No one will want to be outdone by the other team, so I would expect the intensity to be high. The level of competition will bring the players to practice at even higher level than in Baltimore.
