After doing things the New England Patriots‘ way and sitting under Bill Belichick for the past three seasons, Phillip Dorsett has shown he’s coachable and he has both playoff and championship experience that he can share with the young guns on the Eagles roster.
The former first-round selection is five years into an NFL career that’s seen him snag 132 passes for 1,760 yards and 13 touchdowns. Those numbers include the results of six playoff games.
One of the best parts of Dorsett’s resume is he’s still young. He won’t turn 28 years old until January. He probably has a lot of good football left in him as well.
There are times where it looks like Devin Funchess has turned the corner and he’s ready for NFL stardom. There are others where he looks more like a solid magician who can disappear into thin air without a trace.
Almost three years ago, Funchess hauled in 63 receptions for 840 yards and eight touchdowns for the Carolina Panthers. Fast forward back to the present day, and after signing a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts prior to last season, he was placed on their injured reserve after suffering a broken collarbone early in the campaign.
If he’s picked up by anyone, it will probably be another one-year deal, and it will probably be his last opportunity. Might Philly be interested? Update: signed with the Packers on March 25th
