Finally, the Philadelphia Eagles have young talent at wide receiver.
If only teams could carry 60 players on game day. This would be so much easier to figure out. All we’d have to do is dress eight wide receivers on Sunday, and everyone would be happy.
The Eagles, after continuing to swing and miss in their attempt to add veteran receivers, Mike Wallace and Golden Tate for example, addressed the constant cries for finding Wentz some suitable weapons by taking three burners in the draft.
Now the question is will they make the team. Oh, and by the way, yes we remember Tate’s catch in the playoffs, but come on, he’s still in the category of a “miss”.
Philadelphia keeps bringing in veterans because the guys they draft aren’t working out. Think Shelton Gibson and what we’ve seen so far from JJ Arcega-Whiteside. Still, the hope is that the revolving door has finally been slammed shut with the talent they added in the most recent draft. It’s still hard to imagine a scenario where all three conquer the numbers game and make the initial 53-man roster. Here’s what things look like.
On the outside: DeSean Jackson, John Hightower, Deontay Burnett, Marcus Green, Mannaseh Bailey
On the other side: Alshon Jeffery (who probably starts the season injured), JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Shelton Gibson, Quez Watkins
The slot guys: Jalen Reagor, Marquise Goodwin, Greg Ward, Robert, Davis, Khalil Tate,
There’s the possibility of moving guys around, but as of now, aren’t we all guessing here?
