In what is likely to be a sign of the times soon enough, the Philadelphia Eagles are getting a jump start on post-NFL Lockout era by getting. The Eagles are already setting up their facilities at Lehigh University, the site of their training camp, reports Pro Football Talk (via LehighValleyLive.com).
A Lehigh spokesman is going about this as business as usual, while the Eagles are still equivocating on the start of training camp:
"We're trying to be as prepared as possible in the event we go to Lehigh for training camp," Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko said.
Other NFL teams have canceled training camp at away facilities, including the Baltimore Ravens, the New York Giants and the New York Jets. They are all staying home this summer as a result of the lockout.
Even though the Eagles are still taking this step as due diligence even if a lockout wasn't close to ending, there is still much optimism to find in this move.
