Reading the coverage of the Philadelphia Eagles as the team prepares to open a three-day rookie minicamp beginning Friday:
According to Philadelphiaeagles.com, the Eagles have signed seventh-round pick Beau Allen to a four-year contract. The 6-foot-6 nose tackle from Wisconsin becomes the second draft pick to sign, joining wide receiver Josh Huff, chosen in the third round from Oregon.
CSNPhilly.com notes that the Eagles have invited seven additional players to rookie camp, including Baker Steinkuhler, a 6-6 defensive tackle from Nebraska. His father, Dean, was a first-round pick by the Houston Oilers in 1984.
In the Wilmington (Del.) News Journal, Martin Frank questions whether the Eagles’ draft picks will receive much action when the regular season starts.
