The others were A.J. Brown, N’Keal Harry Jay Ajayi Jerseys Stitched , and Parris Campbell. The Eagles seem to be interested in “big slot” types, which is interesting. Philadelphia currently has the most cap space dedicated to three starting wide receivers in the entire league. Included in that equation is Nelson Agholor, who’s making $9.4 million this season on the last year of his contract. Are the Eagles looking to replace Agholor as soon as this year? Are they just preparing for him to move on in 2020? And what has the Eagles so interested in bigger slot types as opposed to smaller Youth Dallas Goedert Jerseys , quicker guys? Hurd is actually the biggest of the big slots the Eagles have brought in for a visit. He measures in at nearly 6-5, 226 pounds.Hurd wasn’t always a receiver, though. He actually played running back at Tennessee before requesting a switch to wideout. Tennessee wanted him to stay in the backfield so he transferred to Baylor in 2017 and played receiver in 2018. Hurd finished his senior season with a nice 69 receptions for 946 yards (13.7 average) and two touchdowns. He also still rushed 48 times for 209 yards and three scores Dallas Goedert Jerseys Stitched , which allowed him to finish his college career with 637 attempts for 2,844 yards (4.5 average) and 23 touchdowns.The Eagles could be bringing in Hurd to talk to him more about his position transition. The team will also be sure to check up on his medical status considering he had a knee procedure done that caused him to miss Baylor’s bowl game.NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein lists Terelle Pryor as Hurd’s pro comparison.

He would not say whether or not Wentz will be ready for full participation once organized team activities get underway on May 21. The 10 OTAs and June’s mandatory minicamp represent the final stage of work before the Eagles take a break ahead of training camp.Back-to-back season-ending injuries for Wentz hasn’t dampened the team’s enthusiasm for signing him to a long-term deal Youth Isaac Seumalo Jerseys , but there’s still plenty of interest inside and outside the organization in seeing how he’ll fare in his return from this issue.
