Potential Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver prospects (continued)

Here are three more wide receivers that could interest the Philadelphia Eagles if they’re interested in adding another experienced wide receiver.

Collin Johnson

Again, this won’t satisfy the Philadelphia Eagles’ possible desire for experience, but Collin Johnson is another big body that makes the mouth water when you think of Jalen Hurts trying to move the sticks on third down or punch one in whenever Philly’s in the red zone and looking to cash in for six.

This dude is massive. Try six-foot-six and 222 pounds on for size (pun intended).

Johnson has 18 receptions, 272 receiving yards, two touchdowns, and 12 first-down receptions on his resume. Now imagine him on the field with JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Dallas Goedert, and maybe Zach Ertz or Tyree Jackson in the lineup on third and goal.

Are you not entertained? If you aren’t, you should be.

Mason Kinsey

The six-foot, 195 Mason Kinsey wouldn’t have shocked anyone had he wound up on the Tennessee Titans roster, but they’re, all of a sudden, loaded at the wide receiver position. They just waived a fourth-round rookie draft choice for goodness sake (even though they’ll probably bring him back to their practice squad).

Kinsey had a nice training camp and preseason and deserves to be on someone’s roster somewhere. The question is whether or not the Birds are paying attention.

Tyron Johnson

Tyron Johnson did work for the Los Angeles Chargers in 2020, snagging 20 receptions on 26 targets and racking up 398 yards and three touchdowns in the process. He’s one of the more accomplished wideouts on this list.

Trending. Eagles could bolster their roster by adding this WR. light

There’s also an easy line to connect here. Johnson has a relationship with Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen who, as you know, spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons as L.A.’s offensive quality control coach before becoming their quarterbacks coach in 2016 and staying there through 2019 before eventually taking over as the offensive coordinator in 2020.
