Listen, I know it’s ONLY OTA’S but when have the Eagles had someone that can do THIS on a consistent basis?

T.O has to be the last one but besides him Alshon has to already be one of the top 3 most talented receivers in Eagles history, right?
Alshon makes that play on a routine basis and his hands are the main reason why my bold prediction numero uno this season is that the drops won’t be a major concern this year. Alshon’s catch radius is absolutely insane and his hands are in the top tier in the whole league. If the guy can stay healthy, I don’t see anyway that he doesn’t eclipse over 1200 yards receiving. It’s a contract year, he has a lot to prove and he has a whole offseason with Carson Wentz. I like it all. It just all feels right for an Alshon breakout season.
Reportedly, the kid is struggling in OTA’s which isn’t great but hopefully that is just ironing out his new mechanics and putting in the work with new receivers. However, his throw to Alshon here is something that I am so here for. Having a guy that can just go up and get the football might bring tears to Eagles fans eyes. Remember last year when we had sports talk radio callers crying (legit) because Wentz used “kill, kill, kill?” Now mix that with a receiver that can go up and get the football and there might be some flooding on I-95 this season.
I will say this about the video shown above… I would have liked to have seen it slowed in slow-motion down. Feel as if that would have added to the absurdity of the catch. Next time, just be better @Eagles.
Under 100 days until we have Eagles football.
