Eagles Rookies Excited For First NFL Test

For the Eagles rookies, this first preseason game isn’t just a glorified practice like it is for some of the vets. This is their first taste of real live NFL football. Understandably, they’re excited.

Nate Allen on how much he’s looking forward to Friday night.

“A lot. It’s a big one for me. This is my first NFL game, even though it is preseason, I’m still going into it like it’s the Super Bowl. I’m excited.”

Mike Kafka

“It’s going to be exciting. It’s going to be pretty jacked up. But, I have some time because I know Kevin and [QB] Mike [Vick] are going to get some reps. So, I have to kind of settle down and take it in a little bit. But, yeah, it’s going to be fun and I’m going to enjoy watching everyone and the team really get after it.”
