Eagles Move Training Camp Home From Lehigh University

Our colleagues at Birds 24/7 report:

The Eagles announced Friday that they will hold training camp in Philadelphia this summer both at the NovaCare Complex and Lincoln Financial Field, ending a 17-year run at Lehigh University.

According to the team, the new set-up will include a number of free, public practices at the Linc along with private practices by invitation only at NovaCare.

Andy Reid found value in bringing his team to the quiet hills of Bethlehem, believing that it promoted team bonding. The Eagles continued making the trek each summer as more and more teams around the NFL opted to stay at home. Chip Kelly is choosing a different, perhaps more modern, direction.
