Eagles announce team complex and stadium will be open to limited employees Monday

The Philadelphia Eagles are going back to the office ... well, some of them. The team announced it would open up its complex and stadium to limited employees starting Monday.

The news comes hours after the NFL told teams coaching staffs can return to facilities Friday. While the Eagles have told coaches to work remotely, some employees will be allowed to return to the team’s facility Monday.

The majority of Eagles employees will still work from home. The team will follow state and local guidelines while reopening, which means no more than 100 people can be at NovaCare Complex and Lincoln Financial Field at the same time.

"We have been planning for and will begin a phased approach of gradually returning a limited number of employees to the NovaCare Complex and Lincoln Financial Field beginning Monday, June 8 in compliance with the state and local guidelines, NFL policies, and in consultation with medical experts. While the majority of our employees will continue to work from home, the virtual collaboration over the past three months has proven that the contributions and value of our employees is not dependent upon their physical presence at the facility.”

The city of Philadelphia will move to its “yellow” phase Friday, opening the door for Eagles employees to return to the team’s complex.

While the NFL gave the green light for coaches to return to team facilities, the league hasn’t addressed when players can show up for camp. Only players currently rehabbing from injuries are allowed at team facilities at this time.

    It's been ten years since LeBron James changed basketball forever and took his talents to South Beach to play with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat in search of his first NBA title. Yahoo's Vincent Goodwill, Chris Haynes and LaJethro Jenkins look back at the last decade of basketball to see if "The Decision" was the right one to make. While it's easy to look back and say the move worked out after two titles, James was widely criticized at the time for breaking up with Cleveland on national TV, though the TV special did raise $2 million for local charities in Ohio. Looking back, should James have picked the Heat? Stayed in Cleveland? Could LeBron have saved the Knicks? And, in the 10 years since "The Decision," we've seen NBA stars take more control over their playing destiny to sign with teams in free agency or demand trades to play in specific cities.
