It looks like the Eagles have landed.
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.
Fargo, I'm out here for the first time! I keep hearing that I have to try a bison burger. Who's got the best one out here?— Alshon Jeffery (@TheWorldof_AJ) July 9, 2017
And then it looked like Nelson Agholor might have found a bison burger of his own.
On Monday morning, Jeffery went live on Twitter to show off a few of his teammates at a workout in North Dakota. Jordan Matthews spoke to the camera for a brief time.
"We out here in North Dakota," Matthews said. "Ain't no rap stations on the radio or nothing, baby. Straight bison burgers, country music and red heads. Shout out to Carson Wentz."
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 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."
