Alshon Jeffery, wide receiver
The theory was if Carson Wentz had Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson on the outside, Philly should have been in business. Unfortunately, the issues when Philly has the ball are too extensive to mention. Jeffery is Philly’s highest-paid receiver, and his claim to fame throughout his career has been his ability to make the contested catches and come down with the 50/50 balls.
Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case in 2019. Jeffery has actually dropped more passes than Nelson Agholor this season. Maybe the good fortune that he had when he played the entire 2017 season with a torn rotator cuff has reached its’ end. Maybe the wear and tear that he’s had on his physical frame has finally begun to haunt him. Whatever the case, this isn’t the Jeffery we’ve come to know and love. Grade: C
Nelson Agholor, wide receiver
What else can be said about Nelson Agholor that hasn’t been said already? He’s cooked. He isn’t very good. His career as a member of the Eagles ends after this season. Honestly, it’s hard to imagine any other team taking a chance on him with the tape he’s put together unless Frank Reich does so with the Indianapolis Colts. Grade: D
DeSean Jackson, wide receiver
In the end, year one of DeSean Jackson’s return to the Eagles didn’t end as we imagined it would. The Eagles officially placed him on the team’s IR (injured reserve) on November 5th, ultimately ending his season.
Though that was disappointing, it’s hard to deny that Philly wouldn’t have won their first game, the only full game Jackson played with the team, without him. For that reason, he gets a grade of ‘average’. Grade: C-
