Carson Wentz Fired Up About New Stars

It didn’t take long for former Bison quarterback Carson Wentz to welcome his new weapons to Philadelphia yesterday.

The new league year began at 4 p.m. Thursday, and the Philadelphia Eagles wasted no time adding former Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and Super Bowl winning wide receiver Torrey Smith. The Eagles also signed 25-year-old offensive guard Chance Warmack. The former 10th pick in the 2013 draft is from Alabama and spent his first four years in the NFL with the Tennesse Titans.

 

Jeffery, who spent the first five years of his career in Chicago, played 12 games last year and made 52 receptions for 821 yards and two touchdowns.

Smith, who’s spent the last two years in San Fransisco after winning the Super Bowl with Baltimore, played in 12 games last year and made 20 receptions for 267 yards and three touchdowns.

Pundits around the league put wide receiver as a high-priority need for the Eagles this offseason to help bolster a position group that ranked sixth in the NFL last year in drops, according to SportingCharts.
