Eagles wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside

Since 2017, what’s happened with the Philadelphia Eagles at the wide receiver position has been a roller-coaster ride. Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith were signed in the same offseason. Both aided in a Super Bowl win, but Torrey left in 2018, and Alshon would eventually be labeled as a traitor (even though what he said turned out to be accurate). Jeffery fell off of the wagon physically so rapidly that it makes one’s head spin.

Philly signed Mike Wallace in 2018, but he got hurt. They missed on guys like Shelton Gibson. They even kicked the tires on Jordan Matthews (twice).

And, how can we forget about this one? In the 2019 NFL Draft, they ignored D.K. Metcalf with the 57h-overall selection to, instead go with JJ Arcega-Whiteside. The promise was JJAW would be a newer and more modern version of Alshon Jeffery.

Ladies and gentlemen, we can safely state that JJ Arcega-Whiteside IS NOT Alshon Jeffery. He isn’t even close. Seriously, we don’t need to revisit the last four years with this guy on the roster, do we?

Regardless of how you feel about JJAW now, one thing is certain. It’s obvious that if this young man is ever going to reach his potential, if there is any, in Philadelphia as a member of the Eagles. Perhaps a change of scenery will help.
