Former NFL WR, future HOFer interested in Philadelphia Eagles vacancy
There seems to be no end to the number of names that are being named as potential candidates for a few Philadelphia Eagles vacancies. The NFL never sleeps.
Look at one very bright side if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan. This team is good, loaded with talent and in prime position to be set up for success in 2020. Players want to play for them. Coaches are interested in coaching for them. Not every NFL franchise can’t say that.
You could have been born a Cleveland Browns fan. Think of how frustrated you’d be then.
The Eagles have vacancies at their wide receiver coach’s position, at their defensive backs coaching position, and they need an offensive coordinator. Depending on what happens with their executive vice president Andrew Berry (the Browns seem to be interested), they may need to perform a few more interviews.
Daily, a new name is added to the speculation that surrounds their offensive coordinator position. Many of us haven’t discussed the wide receivers coaching job, other than to say that the last few they’ve employed have been awful.
Well, there’s some buzz now, and that’s because Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports former NFL receiver, Bobby Engram, and a future Pro Football Hall of Famer, Hines Ward, adding their names to the list of potential candidates.
Ward has been an offensive assistant to the New York Jets since 2019. Engram has been with the Baltimore Ravens for the past five seasons, where he’s served as an assistant to former Eagles special teams coach John Harbaugh. Philly needs some stability. This will be their fifth hire at the wide receivers coaching position in as many seasons, and it feels like they’ve made a worse decision each time. Let’s all hope they get things right here.
