Eagles Rumors Link Team to Star Wide Receiver in Free Agency
It's no secret that the Philadelphia Eagles need wide receiver help. Devonta Smith looks well on his way to proving he's the real deal, but relying on Quez Watkins and Jalen Reagor as the other top receiving options just isn't sustainable.
That's why Eagles fans will likely be excited about the latest free agency rumors.
Philly is among four teams highlighted as early frontrunners to sign free agent wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster if he doesn't return to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Some fans have written JuJu off after a couple down years, but there's still plenty of room for optimism. He showed just how high his ceiling is already in 2018, when he turned 111 receptions into 1,426 yards.
Injuries have held him back since then, but he did still managed 831 yards and 9 touchdowns in 2020. Considering he was catching passes from Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges for that campaign, it's easy to picture him performing even better in the right situation.
The Eagles clearly need wide receiver help, and buying low on a 25-year-old former Pro Bowler would be a perfect high-upside move to address the position.
