The Eagles got a head start Thursday on the league's recent decision to liberalize scoring celebrations.

Right after Nelson Agholor caught a touchdown pass from Carson Wentz over rookie cornerback Rasul Douglas on the final play of the Eagles' nearly three-hour live contact practice, Wentz and the other nine offensive players sprinted down the field and lined up in the end zone in a bowling-pin formation.

Agholor then rolled the football toward them and all of the players fell to the ground.

"It's all Matthews, man,'' Agholor said, referring to fellow wide receiver Jordan Matthews. "He created it. That man's a mastermind. He loves celebrations. I love touchdowns. We love touchdowns. He loves celebrations.

"He said 'The next touchdown we get we're going to do it.' I thought it was kind of cool.''

Agholor said the players didn't practice the routine: "On the run, baby.''

Asked about his choreographer role in Agholor's celebration, Matthews said, "I got a whole bag of 'em.''

He said the Eagles will be selective as far as when they trot them out this season.

"When we have a good, sizable lead, we might get creative,'' he said. "But early on, it's all business.''
