Philadelphia Eagles Will Get Answers Once Game Action Starts For Wide Receivers
It’s early, but the Philadelphia Eagles‘ wide receiver group could have some issues.
Though I believe the Eagles will rely heavily on their tight end crew, they still need receivers to open up the inside of the field for them. As everyone knows, Jeremy Maclin is done for the year with his knee injury. Arrelious Benn is injured. Now, with Riley Cooper being a hot mess and not knowing what his future holds, the Eagles are losing their top outside guys left and right.
Yes, Cooper is one of their top outside receivers. The Eagles were expecting bigger things from him this year.
What about Jason Avant? He’s not effective on the outside, while is why he has been in the slot over the years. Will the Eagles look outside the organization? The best available player is probably Brandon Lloyd. He is a decent receiver, but not really a good fit for the team. Steve Breaston is out there as well, but he had an awful year last season.
Hey, Randy Moss and Chad Johnson are out there, right? All kidding aside, the Eagles’ best option might be in camp already.
The Eagles are running with nine receivers right now. Six of the receivers are undrafted free agents, and only two of the nine were drafted by the Eagles. Russell Shepard and Damaris Johnson are having very good camps by all accounts. The one who’s been struggling is Ifenyi Momah. By yesterday’s reports, Momah had his best day in camp thus far.
The Eagles will start getting their answers when the preseason kicks off on August 9 against the New England Patriots.
