The Cleveland Browns will travel to the City of Brotherly Love in August for a preseason game and will yet again practice with the Eagles leading up to the game

For the second year in a row, the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles will do battle in the preseason and run joint practices in the week leading up to the game, Kevin Stefanski announced on Wednesday.

The two teams got together in Berea last year and will now do so again, only in Philadelphia. A lot of good can come from practicing with the Super Bowl runner-up, so this is a good thing for the Browns.

Cleveland general manager Andrew Berry recently saw the Eagles sign his twin brother Adam to be the Chief and Operations and Strategy. When asked about it, Andrew Berry said "He is going to the best front office in football with the Philadelphia Eagles. He is going to learn under a great mentor in Howie Roseman."

Andrew was the Vice President of Football Operations with the Eagles in 2019 before returning to the Browns in the same role as well as general manager.

The entire Browns organization can learn a thing or two from the Eagles, and that's from front office personnel to the players. Philly is coming of a fantastic season that saw them come up just short against the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. Cleveland can only dream of that for now, but can pick up some tidbits from the Eagles.

These joint practices also allow both teams to get a good look at various players they could be interested in either via trade or in next year's free agency. In fact, there are several members of the Eagles that Jim Schwartz has coached in the past that the team could pursue.

One of those players is Javon Hargrave, who will have many suitors should the Eagles not retain him. That would be a great get for the Browns, that is if the price is right, of course.

When two teams get together to practice, it brings out the best in both teams, and of course there will be scuffles. After all, players are used to practicing with their teammates, so they can't necessarily go as hard as they would if another team was opposing them.
