More Roster Additions

Davis was a dynamic PR in college. It will be interesting to see if he can show that kind of potential in practice.

Killings got paid good money by the Eagles to stay on the practice squad this year. He must be a player they like as a prospect.

Ward showed real potential last year as a slot receiver. Can he take a big step forward in Year 2?

Early Additions

The Eagles added some young players to challenge for 2018 roster spots.

P Cameron Johnston
TE Adam Zaruba
CB Elie Bouka
WR Marquess Wilson
S Harold Jones-Quartey
C Jon Toth
TE Joshua Perkins

Zaruba could be a player to watch. Talented athlete who showed potential last summer, but was extremely raw. A full offseason may give him a chance to really compete for a roster spot.

Wilson is a talented WR with experience. He’s just struggled to stay healthy.

Perkins is small, but a talented pass catcher.

DeSean Update

DeSean Jackson signed a big deal with Tampa in the offseason. Expectations were sky high for him and the Bucs. Jameis Winston has a strong arm and Mike Evans draws plenty of double teams.

Jackson is off to a slow start, going 9-143-1 through three games. He was frustrated on Sunday.

 It’s hard to tell exactly what it was that set him off, but if the little sideline tirade that Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jacksonthrew on Sunday was a result of quarterback Jameis Winston’s inability to get the ball to him, coach Dirk Koetter is OK with that.

Jackson came off the field and slammed his helmet and threw his gloves after Winston failed to connect with Jackson on a critical 2-point conversion during the Bucs 25-23 victory over the Giants and Koetter says Jackson has every reason to be frustrated.

“DeSean should be frustrated because DeSean is an elite player in this league and we didn’t get him the ball,’’ Koetter said after Jackson caught just two of the six passes that were thrown to him on the day, gaining a total of just 20 yards.

We tried to get it to him, and I mean, we’ve talked about how Jameis and Cam (Brate) were clicking; how Jameis and Adam (Humphries) were clicking; how Jameis and Mike (Evans) are always clicking. We even got O.J. (Howard) on track today.

 “But with DeSean, we just couldn’t get it to him other than a couple of short ones. We either flat out missed him a couple times or we didn’t see him. So DeSean has every right to be frustrated and we have to get him involved more because he’s a dynamic playmaker.’’

 Jackson dressed quickly and left the Bucs locker room without speaking to reporters, so it’s uncertain if he’s frustrated over the lack of opportunity or because three games into the season he and Winston still haven’t developed a good connection.

It sounds like Winston is really struggling with his deep accuracy. He’s had some deep balls that were way off target. That can frustrate a receiver.

It will be interesting to see if Winston gets better at that during the season or this issue frustrates Jackson the whole year.

Beau Allen is good at football. And Twitter.

Here is his breakdown of Chris Long’s hustle for the strip sack of Philip Rivers.

I really enjoy the chemistry of this team so far.

Small Ball?

Interesting stat, but also a bit misleading.

The Eagles had a pair of long pass interference penalties that set up 2 of their 3 TDs. You don’t get those penalties if you aren’t throwing the ball down the field. It is true that the team didn’t complete a pass of 20 yards, but they did try to stretch the field a couple of times and it paid off.
