"I think that was the best opportunity for me".
Smith's deal is reportedly for $5M with two $5M options after that. Instead, general manager Ryan Pace allowed the talented receiver to explore his market value.
He has flashed the ability to be a special player when healthy, especially against the Vikings. And has the agility and speed to turn a short gain into a big play.
Warmack is also stepping into a situation where he's nearly certain to serve in a backup capacity. If you want to rank Jeffery at or around WR20 based on his upside, it's probably fine. "You wanna race? We can go do it". He was probably right. At 5-11, you're hoping that he has the toughness of a Steve Smith Sr., who played bigger than his 5-8 stature. "And I didn't play the way I needed to play. So don't be surprised". It's rare to come across a player who invests so much of himself in the locker room, as a leader on the field and with his relentless work ethic. The two were scouting him during his time at the University of Maryland, when both Douglas and Weidl worked for the Ravens.
After a quiet few days leading up to free agency, the Philadelphia Eagles made a hefty splash Thursday afternoon. "I'll be ready for whatever comes my way". I know that they have my back.
Mark it down: Thursday was a great Eagles day.
Also, the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs said moments after Jeffery signed with Philadelphia that he got a sense from people that Jeffery was intent on leaving the Bears. You might've heard of one.
The out-of-shape reporter who fired the question to Smith turned down the challenge, but it's pretty safe to say Smith would have smoked him. Smith said he's already texted with Wentz and had a chance to meet Jordan Matthews at the facility on Friday. For the second consecutive year, Jeffery was looking for a deal that would put him among the best at his position. I thought offensively, there were things he did that worked very well. When we execute, that call seems like the greatest play in the world, and we don't, it seems bad.
