Eagles is adding a second week of joint exercises this summer originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
On Tuesday, the team announced that the Eagles, who have already planned to hold joint training sessions with the Browns in Cleveland this summer, will continue training in Miami with the Dolphins.
This will be the second year in a row that the Eagles will hold two sets of joint training sessions. Last summer they trained with the Patriots at NovaCare before the pre-season game and then the following week trained with the Jets at Floham Park in the pre-season week against the Jets.
In the past, the Eagles have conducted joint training sessions led by Ray Rhodes, Chip Kelly and Doug Pederson, but this is the first two years when they have held several sessions with other teams.
The Browns and Dolphins have chosen training practices open to the public. Both teams are expected to share information on how to get free tickets to these classes closer to the start of the camps in late July.
Last summer, Nick Siriani talked many times about how valuable it was to train against other teams, not with you in terms of evaluating players and preparing the team for the regular season.
In Siriani’s eyes, the practice has overtaken real pre-season games in terms of importance, and he’s playing with his starting matches in the pre-season less than any Eagles coach lately.
Although the Eagles have not announced the exact dates of the joint training sessions, classes are usually held two and three days before the pre-season game, with no training sessions the day before the game.
The Eagles and Browns will play on August 21, and the game in Miami – on August 27.
Dolphins, who studied at Southeastern Nova University in Dewey, Florida, from 1993 to 2020, opened a new facility worth $ 135 million last year. The Baptist Health Training Complex has two grass fields, an indoor turf field in Miami Gardens.
The Eagles and Dolphins held joint training sessions at the NovaCare complex before the 2017 pre-season game in Linc.
Former Alabama teammates Jalen Hurts and Dolphins defender Tua Tagawailoa will meet at the sessions in Miami. It was Tagawailoa who replaced Hertz when he was on the bench during a break in the 2017 College Football Championship match against Georgia in Atlanta and led Alabama to victory in overtime.
Herts spent another year in Alabama, mostly supporting Tagawailoa before moving to Oklahoma.
Former Eagles who could train against their former team are Duke Riley, Eric Rowe, Rahim Mostert and River Craft.
The Dolphins have a new head coach, Mike McDaniel, a longtime assistant to Kyle Shanahan.
