Finally, Alshon Jeffery’s run with the Philadelphia Eagles is at its end.

For some of you, this news is long overdue, but that won’t make it any less impactful. 2020’s regular season is Alshon Jeffery‘s last ride with the Philadelphia Eagles. Sure, this day should have already come. Yes, moving on from Jeffery this past offseason would have allowed Philly to split 17’s cap hit over two seasons.

For some of you, there are questions about why we all could see the need for change and the Philadelphia Eagles couldn’t. Sure, we question Doug Pederson‘s decision-making process and Howie Roseman’s ability to evaluate talent, but the facts are the facts.

Doug is a better play-caller than we are, and good old Howie does a much better job than most of us would do at managing the salary cap. That’s why he’s in the chair and we aren’t.

Still, even with that being said, most of us also knew that Philly should have gotten rid of Jeffery a long time ago, and even with no draft experience, we knew that we should have written D.K. Metcalf’s name on a draft card over JJ Arcega-Whiteside’s.

We won’t even get into all of those failed wide receiver selections. Even for a fan with no G.M. or head-coaching experience, it’s obvious that Jeffery and DeSean Jackson have both overstayed their welcome. Here are a few options if Philly is looking to replace them by fishing in the free-agency pool.
