RTC: Lane Johnson on rookie season

4/25/2014

Reading the coverage surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles turned up some interesting nuggets:

Philadelphiaeagles.com had a solid piece checking in with a number of Eagles about their thoughts on the upcoming season.

Offensive tackle Lane Johnson on his rookie season in 2013: "It went good. I think I had some rookie bumps in the first half of the year, but toward the latter part of the year I think I played really well. I think my body is a whole lot more rested than it was last year. I feel a lot stronger than I was last year, I weigh more than last year -- it's the most I've ever weighed -- and I just feel that from a mental aspect I know what to expect. Nothing is going to catch me off guard."

That's just a snippet. Other Eagles chimed in as well.

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock takes a detailed look at the top defensive backs available in the draft for the Philadelphia Daily News.

The Wilmington (Del.) News Journal also has a piece with wide receiver Jeremy Maclin.

With the loss of DeSean Jackson, Maclin was asked if he considers himself a No. 1 wide receiver now with the Eagles.

"I've never really looked at it like that," Maclin said. "It's like beating a dead horse. Those are the same things people ask every year. I'm just going to go out and play football."
