Tom Brady had a great time with Julian Edelman.

Made by Covey in England “Splash Play” During training camp for the Philadelphia Eagles. He’s a dual-threat spark plug, receiver and kick returner, and at 5’8″ and 173 pounds, he’s diminutive, and no one can outdo him.

He’s firmly on the roster bubble, but on the upside. Kobey showed it all in his 11-of-11 drill in Saturday’s practice while running on the second team’s offense.he even got burned by something like that Start the slot receiver. Mainly because the Eagles are desperate for an explosive return man, it’s no surprise to see him crack 53.

The undrafted rookie from Utah garnered unsolicited praise from Dallas Gordart in the OTAs. Now in his camp training, Coby makes a stark comparison to former Super Bowl MVP Julian He Edelman. Wow.

Former Eagles tight end Clay Harbor said Kobe “reminds me a bit of Julian Edelman.” Harbor stopped by his NovaCare Complex to check out Saturday’s practice and walked away impressed.

Heavy’s Matt Lombardo also hyped Kobe, evoking a diagonal pattern that beats defenders by two strides. Kobe is still a long shot at making the roster, but a strong showing in the preseason could land him a deal.

“The 5-foot-8-inch, 170-pound Kobey could be a player to watch as the Eagles’ exhibition opener takes on the Jets next Friday,” Lombardo wrote. As a potential returner, Kobe could make a strong argument to stay on as the Eagles’ sixth receiver out of camp.

Special teams coach isn’t ready to crown Kobe

Eagles special teams coordinator Michael Clay is wary of naming the team’s next kick returner. He cycled through a number of players last season including Jaylen Rieger, Greg Ward, Kez Watkins, John Hightower, Kenny Gainwell and Jason Huntley.

No one grabbed the bull by the horns. Covey has the following opportunities: win the job in the camp, but he has to earn it.

“Britain has done well. All the returnees are doing a good job,” Clay told reporters. “Jalen [Reagor], [John] kick return high tower, [Jason] Huntley on kick return. I think everyone does a very good job catching the ball. Watching a live game against the Jets and others is very exciting. ”

Clay is not going to let any player read press clippings, good or bad. He has already put the brakes on Olympic track star Devon Allen taking over the duties of the return man.

“As a returnee? Devon hasn’t played football since 2016,” Clay said.


Coby was used to proving people wrong

Covey was electrifying when he got the ball in college. He was named to his All-Pac 12 five times, and in 2021 he will lead Utah with 1,400 utility yards. The numbers include 14 rushes for 99 yards, 52 receptions for 514 yards, 12 kick returns for 360 yards, and 29 punts for his returns. 427 yards.

So yes, Coby is immensely talented, regardless of his size on the roster.

“I feel like my college resume speaks for itself,” Coby said via Eagles Today. “I love the ball in my hand. You don’t have to be tall. You don’t have to be a crazy big athlete. Once you have the ball, that’s exactly what happens, it’s a God-given thing.” It’s like an ability.”
