Adding Hilton would give the Philadelphia Eagles proven production.

With players like Will Fuller, Josh Reynolds, and Kenny Golladay finding new homes, the wide receiver market is thin, but that doesn’t mean that the reservoir it’s completely tapped or empty. One of the few players that are still available at this position is T.Y. Hilton.

Although he may not be the threat that he was a few years ago, the wideout could still benefit the Eagles passing game. In 2020, Hilton played in 15 games, hauling in 56 catches for 762 yards and five touchdowns.

Since the Eagles let Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson walk, Hilton could serve as a mentor to the younger players like Jalen Reagor, Travis Fulgham, and Quez Watkins. It’s also worth noting that he’s played under Nick Sirianni before, which could spark even more interest between the two.

Howie Roseman and the Eagles could take a younger and cheaper approach and select a wideout with the number six overall pick. But after drafting Jalen Reagor last year in the first round and their failure of developing their wide picks at wide receiver, they may want to take a chance on a player with proven production.
