It Looks Like the Eagles Have Landed in Fargo, North Dakota

It looks like the Eagles have landed. 

In Fargo. 

Remember almost a month ago, when Carson Wentz said he was going to get his skill position players together in his home state before training camp to work out and hang? Well, it looks like that time has come. 

And then it looked like Nelson Agholor might have found a bison burger of his own.

Gearing Up and Getting Fired Up at Eagles Training Camp

Are You Experienced? Swoop Gets Eagles Fans Fired Up at Training Camp

Last year, the Eagles' quarterbacks and skill position players met in San Diego. This year, with Wentz running the show, they're in Fargo, North Dakota. 

"Beautiful summers up there, believe it or not," Wentz said in mid-June (see story). "It'll be fun to get together with those guys."

In addition to Jeffery's tweet and Agholor's Instagram photo, Torrey Smith shared a video of him and rookie Shelton Gibson boarding a flight together, presumably to join Wentz and other in North Dakota. 

Others expected to attend the workout sessions include Zach Ertz and Jordan Matthews, who has long pushed to head up to North Dakota to see what Wentz's home state is all about. 

Training camp begins on July 24, but the first team practice doesn't take place until July 27. 

In the meantime, Wentz will be in Fargo throwing to his guys. 

"I think it just shows the leadership that Carson has and the type of rapport he has with the receivers and the confidence he has in his guys," Doug Pederson said in June. "It's something that's exciting as a coach, to know your guys are getting together these next couple weeks and working on their craft."
