Foles: Brady handshake snub 'not a big deal'

Nick Foles isn't sweating the fact that Tom Brady never shook his hand after the Eagles' win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII and he doesn't see it as an unresolved issue.

Tom Brady is experimenting with a new helmet at practice but isn't sure if he will keep it. Said Brady: "Our equipment manager (Brenden Murphy) has been begging me to try it and I'm very resistant but it's been pretty sweet so I kind of like it. ... The facemask isn't quite right so I'm working on that but trying it out."

Julian Edelman didn't appear to be going full tilt on the final two reps of 11-on-11 work, as something seemed to be holding him back. Given his relentless style of play, it stood out as something to file away and follow up on Tuesday. He signed autographs but didn't hold a planned news conference, pushing it to Tuesday.

Play of the day: Undrafted CB J.C. Jackson pulled off what few have in practice when he intercepted Tom Brady on Monday. Jackson, who added two other pass breakups in the practice, followed receiver Phillip Dorsett on a deep post and knew he had safety help over the top. He turned at the right time and made a solid play on the ball. "It's really nothing, man," Jackson said, downplaying the pick. "My goal is to come out here each day and make plays and get better."

Second day at right tackle for first-round pick Isaiah Wynn; 3. Brady punts the ball into stands after a stop by the defense in 11-on-11 work, on a day in which the D had the upper hand.

After eight seasons wearing No. 87, how is Patriots WR Eric Decker enjoying No. 81? He answers with a smile.

Veteran cornerback Jason McCourty, who didn't play in the preseason opener and has mostly been working with the backups in training camp, on battling for a roster spot: "I'm trying not to put any thought process in it. One thing I really believe in is ‘control what you can control.' For me, each and every day I get an opportunity – no matter if I'm with the 1s, 2s, 3s 4s – if your number is called and you get a rep, make the best of the rep. At the end of the day, the powers-that be make those decisions, and put your best foot forward and wherever you stand at the end, that's where you stand."
