It has been well documented over the past few years, that the Philadelphia Eagles, need fresh wide receiver talent. The last few seasons have been a disappointment at best when looking over the wide-out room. Led by veterans Alshon Jeffrey (Currently hurt) and Desean Jackson (Seems to always be hurt), the stock of players that have been thrown out over the years, have been one issue after another. Needless to say, GM Howie Roseman, has looked high and low, for the right talent to help QB Carson Wentz and the passing game. With that said, over the dark moment that has been the season, the Eagles, may have stumbled across, three receivers, who could be the answers to this ridiculous problem.
To say the Eagles front office and fans alike, are excited about the growth and potential of Fulgham. The former 2019 sixth-round pick, of the Detroit Lions, has had a rollercoaster of an early career. But as of now, it seems to be on an upward climb, as Fulgham, has been the Eagles best option over the last two weeks. Standing at 6’2, 215 lb.’s, the former Old Dominion stand-out, seems to have all the factors to be a legit number 1, receiver. Over the last two weeks, he has caught 12 balls, for 209 yards and 2 TDs. In comparison Eagles 2019, second-round pick J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, has 206 yards and 1 TD, in his career. Fulgham, bounced from the practice squad to practice squad, before landing in Philly. Goes to show you that talent can be found anywhere. watching the kid play, it is simple to imagine him as a star, for years to come.
With all the searching the Eagles front office has done, for receiving talent, Reagor may be the best option of them all. Despite being hurt right now, the talent was more than obvious, in the two games he got to play, he has the skill set, to be a dominant player at this level. The 21st pick in this year’s NFL Draft, out of TCU, Reagor, has the speed to be a true deep threat, and the strong hands to be a bully over the middle. Built like a running back, Reagor has the know-how to play at all three WR positions. With the addition of newcomer Travis Fulgham, Reagor could be even more dangerous, as defenses can’t focus on just the youngster, and leave him on an island one-on-one. He will be healthy soon, and then we will all get to see Reagor, get a chance to build on his strong off-season.
The former Quarterback, out of the University of Houston, has had a rocky start to his NFL career. Not for his playing ability, but for the number of times he has been signed and released, by the Eagles. Even with the ups and downs, Ward has kept his eyes on the prize and slowly becomes the slot receiver the Eagles offense needs. He won’t blow anyone away with his 50 receptions, 426 yards, and 3 TDs. But it’s when he caught these passes that would be an eye-opener. It seems to be whenever QB Carson Wentz, needs a play, he is looking for number 84. With his quick speed, that gets him in and out of breaks, the QB know-how, to understand what defenses are doing, and the pure talent, Ward has the skills to be a main-stay in Philly. He may not be the most talented, but he has the upside to be the offenses new version of Jason Avant.
Now I would like to hear your ideas, on these three WR’s? Do you think they could be the future of the Eagles offense? @JonM_Salter
