A couple notes to pass along while we wait for the first day of rookie minicamp to wrap up.
The Eagles announced on Thursday that they have signed five of their draft picks: tight end Zach Ertz, safety Earl Wolff, defensive end Joe Kruger, cornerback Jordan Poyer and defensive lineman David King. The details on Ertz’s deal are out.

That leaves just three draft picks — Lane Johnson, Bennie Logan and Matt Barkley — who still need to sign on the dotted line.
Logan recently drew praise from Gil Brandt, who believes the LSU lineman can make an immediate impact.
Logan should start as a rookie for the Eagles. He’s a lot like Mike Patterson — the defensive tackle who just left via free agency — except Logan is better. He’s strong (Logan had 30 reps on the bench press at the combine), has outstanding quickness for the position and is able to get off of blocks. He’s also a good pass rusher for a defensive tackle. Logan wore No. 18 at LSU — which is an honor given to the player who best represents the team, both on and off the field.
Despite all the excitement around the new regime, single-game tickets are selling slower than many expected. As of this afternoon, you could still get a seat for Andy Reid‘s return to Philadelphia, for instance.
As Philly.com points out, these tickets are on sale earlier than normal. Last season, single-game tickets weren’t available until June 21st at 10 a.m. By 5 p.m. that day the team had announced that they had sold out.
