Andy Reid addressed all the buzz around the tight end position.
“We’re keeping all our options open,” said Reid. “It has nothing to do with Clay [Harbor] or [Brent] Celek coming off [the injury], there were a couple tight ends out there that we liked and thought we’d take a look at, and that’s where that went.” Asked if they have anybody else coming in, Reid responded, “No, we don’t.”
— Reid said that there were no injuries to report after three days of rookie activity up at Lehigh.That is a great start, though things will get a little more treacherous on the field once the hitting begins on Saturday.
— Michael Vick got the morning session off, as is custom for the starter on this day.
— Reid revealed that newly-signed punter Mat McBriar is at 90 percent health. He had a cyst on a nerve below his left knee that created “drop-foot,” or nerve damage. He wears a brace on that leg. The vet still impressed enough to earn a shot to knock off Chas Henry.
— Rookie corner Cliff Harris has been the darling of camp so far, showing a degree of ability that put him ahead of most of the first-year players he worked alongside this week. “He did some good things,” said Reid. “Yesterday he learned a couple lessons down int he red zone. We ran the same route against him today and he broke it up, so that’s a good sign when they can learn from their mistakes.”
