In an offseason of change, the Eagles just made another one, electing to follow the trend of having training camp at home.
Via Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles announced this morning that they would no longer hold camp at Lehigh University, where they’ve gone the last 17 years. They had changed college campuses in the past, but this will mark the first year they’ve practiced in Philadelphia since 1943 (when they were in town at St. Joseph’s).
The Eagles release said they were the 20th team to stay at home for camp. The Cardinals could soon make it 21.
The team will hold most of the practices at their NovaCare Complex, but will also schedule a number of open-to-the-public practices at Lincoln Financial Field.
