Jeffery signs 1-year deal with Eagles

Jeffery signs 1-year deal with Eagles”

The highly talented receiver agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles shortly after the league's new year began at 4 p.m. ET Thursday. Don't be surprised if Jeffery ends up being a top-10 wide receiver in 2017. Jeffery was contrite when asked about his misstep that cost him four games last season.

He has flashed the ability to be a special player when healthy, especially against the Vikings.

The 6-3 Jeffery is the big prize, although Smith, I hope, will complement him as a deep threat. After T.O., they always had somebody who can make more plays than they had before him, from Donte Stallworth to Kevin Curtis to DeSean Jackson to Jeremy Maclin.

Jeffery produced four consecutive seasons of at least 50 receptions and 800 receiving yards with the Bears, including back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns in 2013 and 2014.

American also lowered its 2017 first quarter total revenue per available seat mile rise forecast to a range between 1.5% and 3.5%. Looking ahead, analysts on average predict that earnings for the current quarter would come in in the range of $0.45 to $0.60.

The type of wide receiver that the Eagles need is the equivalent of a five-tool outfielder in baseball, meaning that they can hit for power, hit for average, is a sure-handed fielder, has a cannon for an arm, and can cover the entire outfield if needed. Though he dealt with major injuries last season, Luck is widely considered one of the best young passers in the league and Indianapolis had far more cap space to spend on Jeffery and others.

Jeffery said that Groh wasn't a factor in him choosing the Eagles but that he was glad to be back with him.

"You don't want to have three receivers that do exactly the same thing", Douglas said. "I wish him the best".

"I can still run", Smith said. I definitely haven't lost a step. "The opportunity came to us".

"When I came here and I knew I was coming here", Smith said.

"He said, 'I don't really care about MVP, I want to win championships.' I was like, 'That's right".

The Eagles' offense is finally in a position to fly again. But since the Eagles quarterback situation is pretty stable with Carson Wentz calling the signals, Smith will be a boost to the Eagles offense. That could partly explain some of the drops, although certainly, we're not excusing the drops. Add to that Jordan Matthews, Zach Ertz, Trey Burton, and Darren Sproles and you can understand why Birds fans have a reason to get excited. Former first-round pick Nelson Agholor looks to be on the outside looking in.
