Eagles mini-camp is in the books.

They'll be back in about six weeks for training camp.

The team hopes the work it put in this week serves as a building block to bigger things.

"I wanna win a Super Bowl for this city. To me that would be the ultimate goal," said Brent Celek, Eagles tight end.

Celek and the Eagles are trying to score the ultimate goal - a Super Bowl.

To achieve it, the Eagles have spent the off-season training, including the last three days at mini-camp.

And the work will only intensify come training camp - that was Coach Doug Pederson's departing message on Thursday.

"Enjoy time off, kind of rejuvenate the batteries a little bit, recharge," said Pederson. "And come ready for a tough, physical training camp."

The Eagles will get the next six weeks or so off - kind of.

To help learn Dough Pederson's West Coast offense, the quarterbacks, receivers and tight ends will go to the West Coast for a players-only workout in San Diego, where they hope to bond on and off the field.

"Anytime you can get together away from the facility and spend time together, you know, obviously getting on the field and throwing rounds will be great, but I think just building relationships," said Sam Bradford, Eagles quarterback.

"You want your leaders to spend time together. You want the guys that are going to go to battle every Sunday to be together," said Pederson. "I think it just builds that chemistry and that bond."

Pederson says he trusts his players to come back to work, ready to win.
