Who makes the Eagles roster at wide receiver along with their ‘big three’?

At last glance, Jalen Reagor was still on the Eagles training camp roster. We understand that’s horrible news for some of you. Heck, it’s horrible news for all of us, but it is what it is.

Fingers are crossed for all of us. You’re not alone in that buyer’s remorse or Reagor burnout, so we’ll hold onto hope that he’s traded. If he isn’t, he’s going to be here, along with Philly’s ‘Big 3’ at the wide receiver position: A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, and Quez Watkins.

Okay, we know what you’re thinking. Never have those guys ever been called ‘The Big 3’. You can understand why we’re excited and where we’re coming from though. That’s a talented trio that should be fun to watch, especially if Jalen Hurts takes the next step as a passer.

The question is who are the reserves? With 12 wideouts showing up to camp to compete for jobs, nine guys are, in essence, competing for three roster spots.

It would seem that Zach Pascal, Greg Ward, and Jalen Reagor are the next three guys on the depth chart. Devon Allen, Britain Covey, Deon Cain, John Hightower, Keric Wheatfall, and Josh Hammond have tough hills to climb, but they figure to make things interesting all summer.
