Wait. Are we still talking about the Philadelphia Eagles’ receivers?

Auburn Tigers wide receiver Seth Williams could be the cure for all that ails Eagles fans. Let’s be realistic here. Even if you’re among this fan base’s minority, those who still welcome the idea of Alshon Jeffery in a midnight green jersey, you have to ask yourself without bias or emotion, whether or not he’ll still be effective when he can go.

You’ve seen what happens to guys after they return from Lisfranc injuries right? Does anyone remember former Eagles tight end Chad Lewis? Do you remember when he got hurt and couldn’t go in Super Bowl XXXIX? Do you remember what he looked like when he got back?

Philly selected three wide receivers in 2020’s NFL Draft and traded for another on the draft’s third day, and for a bevy of reasons, it still feels like they need two more. Marquise Goodwin has had injury concerns in the past. Jalen Reagor has had two injuries since camp started. The most recent sent him to the IR. Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson are both injury-prone and probably out of here come the end of the current season. JJ Arcega-Whiteside just can’t play.

The jury is still deliberating on John Hightower and Quez Watkins, but with Reagor assured of a spot on 2021’s roster and with so many small wideouts in the fold, Philly could find some interest in the bigger-bodied Seth Williams. He could be what the doctor ordered (pun intended). He’s six-foot-three. He tips the scales at 224 pounds, and he’s a playmaker. He also possesses a skill set that many of these other Eagles receivers don’t. He’s super physical.
