The Philadelphia Eagles aren’t waiting to play another team before getting in the competitive spirit.
With offseason workouts and minicamps underway, the Eagles have set up a program that rewards players for victories over their teammates in a weekly series of games ranging from tug-of-war battles and agility tests to weight-room competitions.
Using a points-based program, winners are awarded a variation of prizes after each week, according to the team website.
• T-shirts are given out weekly to the winners.
• The winners – three total, unless there are ties – also get coveted parking spots at the front of the NovaCare Complex parking lot. The spots are marked off for “Competition Winners Only” – for the week after they win.
• Back-to-back winners are permitted to select the music in the strength room for a full week after they win.
Whoever has the most points at the end of the spring program will be awarded a “WWE-style championship belt.”
The program divides the team into three categories based on body types – The Line division (offensive and defensive linemen), The Big Skill division (quarterbacks, tight ends, and linebackers), and the Skill division (receivers, running backs, and defensive backs).
