3 available free agents who could make a run at an Eagles roster spot
Adding OBJ to the Eagles roster is totally unnecessary, but come on. Aren’t you a little intrigued?
At the time of this story being written and published, the Philadelphia Eagles have about 700 wideouts on the roster. Look at some of the names: Devon Allen, A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Jalen Reagor, Quez Watkins, Deon Cain, Keric Wheatfall, Greg Ward, Zach Pascal, John Hightower, Josh Hammond, Britain Covey.
Okay, so we exaggerated, and that’s only 12 guys. Let’s be serious though. Smith, Brown, Watkins, and Ward probably make the roster. That’s fair to say, right? Even still, If that meant everyone else is battling for two roster spots, a very real possibility, how many of you can say with conviction that Odell Beckham Jr. isn’t better than most of those guys… if not all of them?
Okay, we’re having some fun here, and we get it. Beckham is an old man now, and the last time we saw him, he left the Super Bowl’s playing field and didn’t return. Still, it’s hard to argue against last year proving that he still has some juice.
Adding OBJ as your WR1 makes no sense now, but adding OBJ to an offense when he’s the fourth or fifth option could spell doom for opposing defenses.
Let’s be clear. There’s no way OBJ lands on this Eagles team, but in a world where we pay a ton of money to purchase EA Sports’ Madden NFL game so we can play the Ultimate Team mode, some of you may have Beckham on your Eagles’ rosters already. Hey, we can dream, can’t we?
