It’s rare that a running back does something without the football in his hands that makes the crowd go crazy.
But let me introduce you to Chris Polk.
During this afternoon’s session, the undrafted free agent out of Washington sent cornerback Brandon Hughes flying on a blitz pickup that drew perhaps the loudest ovation of the day.
The drill matched up a seventh-year veteran with 86 career starts against a rookie seventh-round pick searching for a roster spot.
DeMeco Ryans vs. Bryce Brown. A one-on-one coverage drill pitting linebackers and defensive backs against running backs and wide receivers. The offensive players generally have the advantage with this setup, and there are many more completed passes than passes broken up.
On this particular play, however, there was neither.
The charges against Eagles running back Dion Lewis have been dropped by the prosecution, according to his agent.
