With Jeremy Maclin and Arrelious Benn both gone due to torn ACLs, the Eagles have yet to add a veteran receiver.
And they apparently won’t. Until further notice.
According to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, the Eagles still have no plans to add “an experienced big-name veteran” for now.
It doesn’t mean they won’t. The problem, however, is that few NFL receivers know coach Chip Kelly’s system. (One that did, former New Hampshire receiver Dave Ball, was cut on Tuesday after less than two weeks with the team.)
At some point, the Eagles will have to do something. For now, what they’ll do is embrace Riley Cooper, who was listed as a starter on the depth chart a day before he returned from his leave of absence.
