The first wave of free agency has come and gone, and the Philadelphia Eagles still have a glaring hole at wide receiver. Robby Anderson could solve the issue.

The Philadelphia Eagles have begun to put the pieces together for a nice roster during the NFL‘s free agency period with the signings of defensive tackle Javon Hargrave, safety Will Parks, and linebacker Jatavis Brown. The team also resigned cornerback Jalen Mills (who they’re converting to safety), and their free safety of several seasons, Rodney Mcleod.

The biggest and most exciting move the team made so far was trading for former Detroit Lions cornerback Darius Slay.

Coming into this offseason the biggest needs on the Eagles roster were cornerback and wide receiver. So far, it appears that the priority has been to fix issues on the defensive side of the ball. Eagles fans have to be wondering what the team plans to do with the wide receiver position. As it currently stands the Eagles wide receivers that are expected to be on the roster next season are  Greg Ward Jr., Alshon Jeffery, J.J Arcega-Whiteside, and Desean Jackson.

It’s clear that the Eagles need an upgrade and that they need to add speed at the position, and while the free-agent market is becoming a far less appealing way to do so, there is one higher-priced wide receiver that may be able to help the Eagles passing attack, Robby Anderson formerly of the New York Jets. Here’s the case for signing him.
