Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith was notably given the nickname "Slim Reaper" as a rookie for his narrow frame. It may no longer be applicable after he bulked up during the offseason, though. Smith even gave the perfect Philly response when asked about the food he has been eating.

Smith explained to reporters that he has a "Wawa addiction," which has him eating a sandwich from the convenience store every day. His favorite is the Honey Turkey hoagie. The 23-year-old is fitting right in with millions of other Pennsylvanians who view Wawa as a reliable spot for dinner on the go.

Quarterback Jalen Hurts was the first to mention that he noticed Smith gained some weight prior to training camp. The Heisman Trophy winner credits his willingness to eat more and eat better as the main reason for the change. It's a change that could help him when facing more physical defenders.

Eagles fans caught a glimpse of Smith's true potential when he set the franchise rookie record for receiving yards in a season (916). He hauled in 64 of his 104 targets to reach that mark and scored 5 touchdowns, too. The addition of Pro Bowler A.J. Brown could help raise those totals even higher.

Philadelphians have got to keep an eye out for Smith whenever they make a trip to their local Wawa now. Who knows, maybe he' s there ordering a hoagie, panini, burger, pretzel or mac and cheese dish. For now, The Eagles have odds set at +2500 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
