Philadelphia Eagles training camp fight breaks out again, this time with Jeremy Maclin

The Philadelphia Eagles are clearly having issues staying friendly on the field with one another, as yet another fight broke out today during training camp.

During Sunday afternoon’s practice session, a fight broke out between two of the leaders of the team in running back LeSean McCoy and defensive end Trent Cole.

Although the team downplayed the incident, it certainly is not a good look to have your best player fighting on the practice field.

On Monday, yet another fight was forced to be broken up when wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and cornerback Bradley Fletcher began throwing haymakers at one another. 

Having two fights in two days is simply indefensible. To compound the issues, Maclin is returning from a torn ACL he incurred in last season’s training camp. If Maclin was to get injured due to a fight with his own teammate, it would certainly look very bad for the Eagles.

Chip Kelly and the Eagles coaching staff must maintain order in training camp if they hope to have any success going into the 2014 NFL season. Yes, football is a heated sport and grown men are bound to engage in fisticuffs sometimes, but two days in a row is unacceptable.

Maclin likely did not want to answer questions regarding the fight, so he did not speak to the media afterwards:
