Update: Eagles quarterback Michael Vick confirmed that the Eagles will meet for some drills next week. Vick said about 15 players may attend.
From earlier: A group of Eagles plan to get together next week to run routes and catch passes from quarterback Michael Vick, tight end Brent Celek said Friday.
“That’s something that’s going to be huge for us, just keeping the timing down,” Celek said in an appearance on ProFootballTalk.com. “When you come back (from the lockout) you want to be on your game, otherwise there’s going to be a lot of bad football out there.”
Several teams, including the Giants, Cowboys and Redskins have held informal work outs during the lockout, though the value of the often-loosely run sessions is suspect. At some teams’ work outs, more media have showed up than players. In many cases, only a few players participated.
Celek didn’t say how many Eagles might show up next week. He said the group would mostly consist of receivers and running backs. Celek, though, took a shot at players who have boasted about enjoying the free time afforded by the lockout.
