After years of driving their fanbase crazy because of a lack of competent receivers, the Philadelphia Eagles may now have too many.
The Jets and Ravens are aware of this, and are reportedly “keeping a close eye” on the Eagles wideouts, according to Paul Domowitch of the Philadelhphia Daily News.
It’s not clear what receivers the AFC teams are looking at, but Reggie Brown is the best guess. The 2005 second-round pick’s career has slid the last two years, but he produced 1,596 yards with 12 scores between 2006-2007, so he’s not without talent.
Brown isn’t guaranteed to make the Eagles roster presently, with Jason Avant in the slot, rookie first-rounder Jeremy Maclin on board, and Hank Baskett helping out on special teams and reality shows. (DeSean Jackson and Kevin Curtis are the starters.)
Brown may only be sixth on the depth chart in Philadelphia, but he would likely find playing time on either the Ravens or Jets.
