One of the most fascinating rookies the Eagles added is Trey Burton. He went to Florida to play QB and moved around while there. The Eagles have him playing TE, but Burton is only 6-2, 224 so he’s an interesting fit there. He is getting a lot of help in adjusting to life as an NFL TE.
Fortunately for the young tight end, one of the veterans in his position group has taken him under his wing, showing him the ropes during his first few practices with the team.
“The guy who has helped me out the most is James Casey,” Burton said. “He’s been unbelievable for me and all the other rookies. He’s always been there to answer all of the questions that we have, and he’s a really funny dude, so he definitely lightens up the mood in the meeting rooms and around the locker room.”
It is always a good sign when veteran players help the young guys, especially when they are potentially fighting against each other for a roster spot.
