Eagles Wideouts Have Plenty to Prove Over Final Six Weeks
The Eagles Wide Receivers' situation is in a state of flux with the issues going on with Nelson Agholor along with the signing of Paul Turner to the 53-man roster, attention will turn to another Wide Receiver who has his own set of issues in 2016: Dorial Green-Beckham.The 23 year old is in his second season in the NFL but his play is not much better than his rookie season in Tennessee. With only 23 Catches on 44 Targets along with only two Touchdown Catches vs three Dropped Passes on the season, after 10 games DGB has been underwhelming considering his projected level of talent.
ESPN NFL Reporter Sal Paolantonio joined Mike Gill on Wednesday and discussed what the Eagles are thinking about Dorial Green-Beckham's underwhelming play:
"I think they are just sort of trying to figure out if the light bulb is going to go on, if he can flip the switch. He has now had 10 weeks with the team and he is not getting any better so you have to make a decision at the end of the year to whether or not you are going to keep him around and make an investment in him. Not just money wise, but there is a lot more that goes into it. You are making an investment in time and effort that you are taking away from other players or other possible replacements. To me the entire (Eagles) Wide Receiver core other than Jordan Matthews is on probation and they have to figure out if they can be NFL caliber WR’s.”
