The Eagles add Allen Robinson or another vet to their WR room, hopefully, for a discount.

There are, seemingly, always those conversations about whether or not the Eagles should explore the idea of adding a veteran wideout to the wide receiver’s meeting room. His players seem to love him, but the position coach, Aaron Moorehead doesn’t get the best out of his unit,

Yes, DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins are good, but that’s more about Smith and Watkins than anything Moorehead is doing. There are too many cases of failure that are attached to this unit, and If nothing changed between now and next season (and if the Eagles made the decision to bring him back), Greg Ward would be the elder statesman of the wide receivers corps.

No one is pumped about the idea of drafting a wide receiver. No one trusts Howie Roseman. It would have been fun to land one of the better free agents, but most have been removed as possible targets. Davante Adams and Chris Godwin have been franchised, and Mike Williams just signed an extension to stay with the Los Angeles Chargers.

That brings us to prospects like Allen Robinson and D.J. Chark. They could wind up on Philadelphia’s radar as guys the team could gamble on. The hope is the market won’t be what the second-tier wideouts want, and that could lead to their availability after the draft for discounted pricing.

Somehow, however, that seems like a more realistic scenario for guys like Chark, Will Fuller, and JuJu Smith-Schuster than it is for someone like Robinson. You never know though. We’ll have to wait and see how things play out.
