2. Lamb could be No. 1 wideout of future

Assuming Jackson and Jeffery return to their normal ways by the start of the 2020 season in September, the good news for Lamb or any other receiver Philadelphia decides to bring on board is they won’t be feeling the pressure to be the top target right away in the passing game.

Around this time last year, there was plenty of excitement surrounding the new duo of Jackson and Jeffery in the passing game to make life much easier for Carson Wentz under center.

Philadelphia’s Week 1 win over the Washington Redskins last September gave Eagles fans a pretty good idea of the potential surrounding these two moving forward, but unfortunately this turned out to be the lone highlight of these two together due to injuries.

Ever since last season came to an end, there has been plenty of talk surrounding the possibility of Philadelphia moving on from Jackson or Jeffery this offseason since the two veterans weren’t getting any younger.

With both players currently on the roster at the moment, it’s safe to assume that Jackson and Jeffery will be suiting up for the Eagles once Week 1 arrives, which would also mean that someone like Lamb wouldn’t feel the pressure of being the top target right away.

Down the road, Philadelphia would obviously love Lamb to become the No. 1 option in the passing game, but at least for 2020, this wouldn’t be necessary.
