Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid On First Week Of OTAs: 'I Thought The Energy Level Was Great'

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid wrapped up the first week of OTAs on Friday by reviewing how the week went.

Reid said, "It's good to get everyone together for the OTAs. I thought the energy level was great. The guys came out and fooled around a little bit. We're restricted on the contact so we're on a two-step rule here, but we're working within that. We're getting some work done with the o-line and d-line, again without the contact but on the back end, it's full speed. All-in-all, it's been a good three days and we'll add three more next week."

Reid reported no injuries and that included veteran quarterback Trent Edwards. Reid also confirmed that Mike Kafka got the second-most reps in the practices behind starting quarterback Michael Vick.

Reid also talked about the importance of having OTAs after not getting to have them last season, saying "It allows you to knock off some of the rust. It also allows the young guys to learn. It allows you to take the guys out of the weight room and the conditioning part of it and put it to use. We've had pretty good timing in really all phases: special teams, offense, and defense."
