PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia Eagles fans took a look at the roster Sunday ahead of the upcoming season.
The Birds held their first open practice as they continue to hone their game.
Some fans tell Action News that they lined up four hours before the gates opened.
Jay Amamio said he believes the Birds have what it takes to go all the way.
“All the mushrooms, Cheez Whiz, the onions, we got all the ingredients with the team. Put it all together and we’ll eat all day,” said Jay Amamio of Townsend, Delaware.
As all the players took the field at Lincoln Financial Field, fans of all ages made sure they were as close to the action as possible.
“I was so excited to come that I had to bring my son. This is a future Eagle player,” said David Spaulding.
And for a former Eagles player, it never gets boring to see fans in the stands.
“Philadelphia fans are the biggest, they’re the best and so many true fans,” said former Eagles player Harold Carmichael.
It’s a day Eagles fans look forward to every year.
The team says all ticket proceeds from Sunday’s open practice will benefit the Eagles Autism Foundation.
They will be back for the first preseason game against the Jets on Friday, August 12.
