Encouraging Signs For Eagles’ Offensive Line

Antonio Dixon is used to the pace and structure of the Eagles’ 11-on-11 team drills. He’s been participating in them all spring and knows what’s expected.

Jason Kelce, on the other hand, had been sitting out that portion of practice as he continued to recover from a torn ACL. But Tuesday, for the first time, Kelce lined up as the Eagles’ starting center, and he decided to go all out, mixing it up with Dixon on the very first snap.

“I think I was probably going a little bit harder than I should have in OTAs, and Antonio didn’t like it so we kind of got in a scuffle,” Kelce said with a laugh. “But it’s all good. We’ll be friends when we go back in there.”

Notes From Playground Build: On Peters, Barkley And More

The Eagles held their 17th annual playground build at the William D. Kelley School in North Philly Wednesday. Over 250 team employees, including the players and coaching staff,  joined the students in painting a mural on the school walls.

“You forget until you get here the looks on the kids’ faces, that makes it all worth while,” said owner Jeffrey Lurie. “For them to know that the Eagles care about them, and that they’re just as important as any player, you forget how wonderful that is for the kids until you get here on this day.”

Some news and notes we took away from the event:

Jason Peters, Kenny Phillips Don’t Practice

Jason Peters was not at the NovaCare Complex for the Eagles’ voluntary practice this morning.

Chip Kelly would not offer details, but did not seem overly concerned. Asked if he would have liked Peters to be here, Kelly said, “No, I understand exactly where Jason is.”

Kelce, Lane Johnson Missing From First Team

The Eagles’ fourth overall pick toiled quietly in the background Monday, running with the second team while Dennis Kelly got the reps at right tackle with the ones.  Jason Kelce — wearing a large brace on his right leg — got some work in but sat out teams drills, giving way to Dallas Reynolds. Evan Mathis‘ only appearance during practice was on Twitter. 

Just how close are we to seeing this line in its (presumed) most potent form?

The State Of the Eagles’ Offensive Line

Todd Herremans says he has not watched the draft since 2005. That was the year the Eagles selected him in the fourth round out of Saginaw Valley State.

But next Thursday could affect the ninth-year pro. After moving to right tackle before the 2011 season, Herremans could be asked to slide back inside to guard, particularly if the Eagles use a first-round pick on someone like Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel, Central Michigan’s Eric Fisher or Oklahoma’s Lane Johnson.

So surely Herremans will be tuning in this year, right?

“I’m sure I’ll see it on Twitter,” he said.
