We all knew Eagles training camp was being moved from its former home up in Lehigh to the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia, but it wasn't until today that we realized this meant the death of photos and videos of players arriving in giant SUVs and carrying flat screen televisions and video game systems. Sad, I know. But fear not lovers of non-news news, because Nick Foles got a haircut.

Welcome to Eagles training camp 2013.
So what actually went down today in South Philly? Guys started showing up. Rookies and quarterbacks and maybe a few select position players who missed out on some of the OTAs will check in today and get some actual practice in tomorrow.
These are exciting times to learn more about Chip Kelly's quirks.
So far not much news of interest today because, you know, they didn't actually practice. But Nick Foles talked a bit about competing for the starting QB job and said that he wasn't mad at ya boi DeSean Jackson for stating he thought Mike Vick would eventually win the battle. For his part, Vick is ready to compete according to Howie Roseman.
Who's starting to get excited to have some actual football to talk about again?
Roseman: Vick isn't shying away from competition. He's excited about it and we've talked about it in every conversation w/him since day one.
