5:36 am

5:37 am
employers don't want to have to either, specially with the sky-rocketing costs, the problem is, it could de-stabilize the insurance market, raise premiums, and increase the number every uninsured. that's what the critics are saying, that's the latest version we could see the vote on that later this week. >> so total repeal could be off the table? >> right now, it is looking like it is not. this, the skinny version, that could come up in a votearama later today could just be the starting point. it might not be the final thing t could get the senate passing something, then would have to meet with the house in conference there is may not be the final-final if you will, but it is what's on the table right now. >> caroline, the other big news of course the tweet that the president put out, the series of tweets about having transgender people serving in the military, then at the news conference yesterday, you know, we didn't get a lot of answers when this policy would go into effect watch are folks, in washington, saying about this, when this could happen, what people in the military may or may not have known? >> jaws dropped all over capitol hill, i can tell you that, being married to someone who works at the pentagon, they were shock over there.
5:38 am
they didn't know that this was coming there is would be a massive reversal under what we saw under the obama administration. so the details, we don't know them. they're not out there yet. what would this mean to medical costs, transgender folks, already serving there? a tweet does come from the president, but doesn't have the legal weight. jim, defense secretary, we are waiting for him to speak on. >> this so far those tweets, that's the only information we have. but democrats, up on capitol hill, all opposed to the idea, some republicans are behind it. we'll have to wait and see how this plays out. >> such major announcement coming via tweet. caroline shively, thanks and good to see you, a 38:00. purple rain throttle only film you can catch in the city tonight. where and when you can catch ratatoulle. >> the phils had huge game against the astros, then big trade after the game. finds out who went where next in sport.

>> maybe, maybe for christmas, bob kelly? disbelief six of those actually, kristin, fate, jake, noah madison, and austin. he is actually. the work well. good morning, everybody, 5:46. live look at the talcony palmyra bridge, moving right now, but in about four minute, 15:50, set for what i guess has become a morning ritual here. another bridge opening around this time. so if you typically use the talcony palmyra, you got couple every minute to either put another pop tart in the toaster or head for the betsy ross bridge there in the background. speaking of bridges, the atlantic city river -- the atlantic city line, new jersey transit, suspend in the morning, because the beach bridge is stuck in the up-right position, down the shore. so, that's going to cause delays between absecon, and atlantic city. some other closures, the penn's landing ramps that vehicles use between market and chestnut, to get you to and from the little flip around ramps here, closed yesterday, as part of the

5:48 am
to get you started but you'll in the that the winds direction has changed. winds are coming out of the south now. little bit of on shore flow at the shore this morning. we have 7-mile per hour breeze. but with the southerly wind means is that you are going to feel more humidity today. no rain to show you on radar. it is not out of the question. you'll see little shower this morning. but it is more likely in the afternoon, as first we get this warmfront, then we get cold front, following it, and we've got to factor in the cold front to the north. so we have several systems converging on us, high pressure get out of here, ended up with very nice afternoon yesterday, and high of 82 degrees. today we're headed to about 85, with late day thunderstorms popping up, the chance is greater for thunderstorms throughout the day, especially, late in the day, but really any time on friday with a high of 83. although, slow moving systems that we just showed you, now the weekends, cools off a little bit, with some left over showers saturday morning, we get to high of 76, and it does look lick we will see sun
5:49 am
in the afternoon on saturday, by sunday, it is beautiful day with a high of 78. for the last weekend of july, we don't have that heat and humidity. we're still going to get it, though, once it becomes august, and that happens on tuesday, first day of august, by wednesday back to 09 degrees, thomas, car glenn we so miss that humidity. sue, thank you. 5:49. all eyes on the eagles today as training camp kicks into full gear. they're going to hold the first team practice of the year with everyone on the roster expected to be there, except one person. >> so let's bridge aton to break it all down for us, my twitter feed blowing up with all of these people being released and some trades and what's going on, so, let's start off with number one draft pick at one point. >> yes, marcus smith, team has moved on. sit of philadelphia, we can all move on from marxist smith, really hurts a team when you bus on first rounds draft pick. really one of the final renmant of that chip kelly era. so this is now the new regime, moving on, and not holding
5:50 am
onto him any more. you have depth at the defensive line. derrick barnett was drafted to be a pass rusher. he's not going to play linebacker. marcus smith either. so better to move on, and let some other young player that you can hope for much better. >> moving onto new chapter. eagles making deal with with basher? >> little crazies at first, they released allen barbre, statement from howie roseman, that says we loved everything he did for us, still the door open for him to come back. then we find out that they actually traded him to denver. which is great. conditional draft pick or not, the fact that you can get something back for somebody is fine. they're so deep at offensive line. isaac saymodel. get to his name. >> i think right now he comes in as the starting guards. he was already the starting guards before this news came down. and they likes what they saw from him last year. big v is the other youngster, at tackle position you may get some more run. this is all about opening up for the young linemen who are

supposed to protect carson wentz in the future. >> so, what are we expecting with al sean jeffrey for this year? >> everything, everything, the guy right now, who the team brought to make it so much easier forecaster on wentz. can he get anything you throw to him, the catch radius is what they call there is you throw the ball anywhere, he'll go and grab it, possession receiver, he has got some& pediatric, as well, red zone threat, point on the board, he's electric. this is the guy he's the number one receiver, all he needs to do is stay healthy, that's it. >> that's always it. >> listen, as long as he doesn't play for the sixers i think he'll be jobbing steven daniels, he was signed to three year deal? >> yes, bring in other players, as well. and it is just more, more camp bodies, i don't think that you can look at him as far as a key contributor moving forward. but this is the time in which you'll bring if bodies for competition. >> so what are our weaknesses would you say with the team as you look at that time? >> right now the key weakness is cornerback. you don't have an identifiable talent. you don't have somebody like al sean jeffrey that you can
5:52 am
point to. you don't have le garrett blunt the running back they bring n there is nobody you can say that's a key position that we can lock in. so jaylen mills right now has a lot of expectation on him. and sydney jones is hurt. he won't play this year. but i'm going to bet that that's going to be the kid moving forwards. >> that was factor with went. he wasn't getting the support. do you think he'll get the support this year? >> yes, on offense and defense, this is huge year for the people around him. al sean jeffrey, tori smith, legar it blunt, but also jim swarth the defensive coordinator who really needs to mold his scheme with the players that he was allowed to pick and bring in. so i think this year, year two, that's the theme, year two forecaster on, year two for doug pederson, year two for jim swarth. they'll get it together. >> all right, exciting just talking about it. >> i know, that i have feeling. >> we just got to get tickets? >> easy, don't worry about that. >> almost august already, okay, thank you, appreciate t stick around, we'll break it down little later on good day, as well. all right, o beautiful picture outside right there, as we
