3 Most Likely Alshon Jeffery Free Agent Destinations
The Philadelphia Eagles and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery have finally split, with the team set to release him when the new league year begins. Jeffrey won a ring in his first season with the Eagles, but injuries have plagued the wideout and made a divorce inevitable.
At just 31 years old, the veteran could still add value to a team's receiver room. With that in mind, here are three likely free-agent destinations for Jeffery.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be major players for several big-name veterans this offseason after winning the Super Bowl. Coming off of just 6 catches for 115 yards and 1 TD in 2020, Jeffery is the kind of buy-low candidate that a contender is willing to take a flier on. He wouldn't be tasked with being a top-2 option, but he could provide another threat on the field for Tom Brady, filling the Antonio Brown role for this team that hopes to defend its championship in 2021.
2. Miami Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins fell short of the playoffs last season, but it's clear this team is a budding contender. Bringing in a veteran like Jeffery with Super Bowl experience to bolster their receiving corps around Tua Tagovailoa would be a smart move. When healthy, Jeffery is still a 50-plus-catch-season talent, and Tagovailoa can use as many capable wideouts as possible to ensure he doesn't continue to struggle in Year 2. Jeffery could play a role in an offense that's sure to improve this offseason with the Dolphins' draft capital and cap space.
1. Baltimore Ravens
Instead of wasting Lamar Jackson's talent, the Baltimore Ravens should be exploring every possible free agent wideout. The team has speedster Marquise Brown and the dependable Mark Andrews already in place, but they could use additional receiving threats to surround Jackson with. The Ravens need to get a No. 1 wideout, and that's not what Jeffery is at this stage in his career, but he's another solid pass-catcher who'd have the potential to make an impact without breaking the bank. His 490 receiving yards in just 10 games in 2019 would've placed him third on the Ravens this season, so it's clear Baltimore could use all the help they can get.
