Wentz excited about Eagles drafting Hurts (1:36)

Carson Wentz understands why the Eagles drafted a young QB like Jalen Hurts. (1:36)

The Philadelphia Eagles begin training camp for the 2020 NFL season on July 28 at the NovaCare Complex and Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia. The defending NFC East champions finished the 2019 regular season with a 9-7 overall record but lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the wild-card round of the playoffs. The Eagles return 18 starters from that team, as well as coach Doug Pederson and coordinators Jim Schwartz (defense) and Dave Fipp (special teams). Philadelphia opted not to directly replace offensive coordinator Mike Groh but is hoping the promotion of up-and-comer Press Taylor to pass-game coordinator, along with the additions of Rich Scangarello, Andrew Breiner and Marty Mornhinweg to the staff, will help infuse a proven offense with fresh concepts.

Here's a 53-man roster projection:


QUARTERBACK (3): Carson Wentz, Nate Sudfeld, Jalen Hurts

Sudfeld will probably open as the No. 2 quarterback given his familiarity with Pederson's system and the lack of on-field training for rookies this offseason because of the coronavirus pandemic, but the Eagles have expressed interest in using Hurts in a Taysom Hill-like role, so the Eagles could have three QBs active on game days. Wentz's backups are short on experience, with 25 career snaps in the NFL between them.
