Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, long an outspoken advocate for social reforms, went silent at the team’s practice complex Wednesday.
Instead, Jenkins let several signs do the talking for him. He held them up in response to questions about the Eagles’ canceled White House visit, which President Donald Trump blamed on the Eagles for not being patriotic during the anthem.
In just seven games, Watson generated a combined then-league-high 21 passing and rushing touchdowns while posting a 103.0 passer rating. And the Texans scored at least 33 points in each of the five games that preceded his injury. But 36 quarterbacks make more money than Watson on an average annual basis.
Not a lot has gone right of late for the Indianapolis Colts, making it difficult to find Colts players who have outperformed their contracts. That said, veteran defensive tackle Al Woods experienced a breakout season after signing with the Colts in 2017, so Woods has easily been worth every penny of his cheap two-year, $4 million contract.
The 31-year-old recorded a career-high 44 tackles as a 16-game starter last year, and he should play a similar role as part of a four-man front in 2018. If he can deliver in a similar fashion, the 2010 fourth-round pick will be worth a whole lot more on the open market next year.
Me and Frank, we click, man, Ebron said on Wednesday’s edition of Good Morning Football. And he’s done great things with tight ends, as you look at Zach Ertz and his offense last year.
He’s done great things, and I think he’s brought me in here to be that… effective player for him.
While coach Doug Pederson called the plays for the Eagles last season, it was Reich who scripted the game plans as Ertz earned Pro Bowl recognition and backup tight end Trey Burton parlayed his own potential into a lucrative new contract with the Bears.
Can Reich work the same magic with an enigmatic fifth-year tight end who is just a few months older than Ravens ‘ first-round rookie Hayden Hurst ?
Ebron never could put it all together in Detroit, mixing flashes of playmaking ability with untimely drops and mental mistakes. He is one year removed, however, from a 700-yard campaign that made him a popular breakout candidate last offseason.
