Eagles to conduct joint practices with Cleveland Browns this summer
One of the Eagles’ three preseason opponents has been revealed. According to a report from The Athletic, the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles will conduct a joint practice in Cleveland this summer. Since they will be practicing against each other during the week, that confirms they will be squaring off during the preseason as well.
The Eagles held these joint practices last summer with the New York Jets and New England Patriots. Often these practices are seen as game environments due to the competition, so it’ll be a great chance for Jalen Hurts and company to get ready for the season.
Over the last few years, starters have been playing less and less in preseason games, so this joint practice could be the closest thing to an in-game situation several Eagles vets could have before opening week.
The last time these two faced off in the preseason was 2018, in an electric 5-0 victory by the Browns, featuring a QB duel between Nate Sudfeld and Tyrod Taylor.
Philadelphia’s full preseason schedule will likely be revealed later this off-season. Yesterday, the Arizona Cardinals were announced to be hosting an international game in Mexico, and the Eagles could potentially be their opponent for that game.
