Which wideouts seize the opportunity and make the Philadelphia Eagles roster?
This one’s the main event. At the time of this story being published, 14 wide receivers are on the Eagles roster, and we’re probably looking at six of them actually making the team. Throw a blindfold on. Throw a dart at a board on with those 14 names on it, and you’ll land on a name that probably has three questions surrounding it.
Will the Eagles just eat the cap hit to dump Alshon Jeffery, or will he be on this team? If he is on the team, when can we expect him to start playing and join the active roster? Can DeSean Jackson stay healthy? Can JJ Arcega-Whiteside bounce back from a disappointing rookie season? What’s the plan for Jalen Reagor? What does this team do with Greg Ward now?
What about John Hightower and Quez Watkins? Do they have any shot at making the team or will they be placed on the practice squad (which allows any of the other 31 franchises to swoop in and steal them)?
On Day 3 of the draft, Philly also orchestrated a trade that brought Marquise Goodwin into the nest, but like Jackson, he’s had his share of injuries. What are the reasonable expectations of him?
Philly’s most injury-riddled position group from season ago is, again, its most interesting position group to talk about. Has this team finally found its best mixture at the position and the best position coach they’ve had in the Doug Pederson era in Aaron Moorehead or will we again be talking about finding wide receivers in 2021?
We won’t have to wait too much longer to find some answers.
