The Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver corps is not in good shape. As it currently stands Youth Corey Clement Jersey , the Eagles are without three of their top four receivers; Alshon Jeffery, Mike Wallace, and Mack Hollins are all injured. Jeffery’s return is on the horizon, though it’s unclear if he’ll be ready for Week 3. Wallace, meanwhile, suffered a “potentially season-ending” ankle injury on Sunday. Hollins isn’t eligible to return from injured reserve until after Week 8 at the earliest. It’s clear the Eagles need help at the receiver position. The team can’t just trot out 29-year-old journeyman Kamar Aiken for 64 snaps on a weekly basis and expected to win. Shelton Gibson and DeAndre Carter don’t appear to be viable full-time players, either.So, what should the Eagles do? Let’s examine their options.TRADEJOSH GORDON - I already wrote a bunch of words on the cases both for and against pursuing Gordon. Since I wrote that post, however, the Eagles’ receiver outlook got even worse. Flash makes a lot of sense for what the Eagles need in the field-stretching department right now. I still think Gordon is unreliable Cheap Dallas Goedert Jersey , and the price to acquire him needs to account for that, but it could be worth a shot. Unfortunately his hamstring injury adds another layer of uncertainty to the situation. (Hey, remember when the Eagles reportedly turned down a Browns offer of Gordon for Nick Foles back in 2013?)DEVANTE PARKER - Parker was a surprise scratch for the Dolphins’ Sunday game against the Jets. The 2015 first-round pick has been dealing with a broken finger but he said he felt he was healthy enough to play. Perhaps Adam Gase has soured on Parker not unlike he did with Jay Ajayi last year. Howie Roseman should call up Mike Tannenbaum to check up on the situation. Parker, 25, has 139 career receptions for 1,908 yards (13.7 average) and eight touchdowns. FREE AGENTSDEZ BRYANT - A number of fans have been clamoring for the former Cowboys receiver. I’d be pretty surprised if the Eagles sign him, though. There are a number of issues here. First, Bryant probably wants more money than the Eagles are willing to offer. Bryant reportedly turned down deals in the $6 million per year range earlier this offseason. Second, I don’t think the Eagles are eager to add Bryant to their locker room dynamic. Third, are we even sure Bryant is that good anymore? He averaged a career-low 12.1 yards per reception in 2017 Cheap Alshon Jeffery Jersey , though a timid Dak Prescott certainly wasn’t doing him favors in that regard. It is worth noting that the Eagles employ Bryant’s college position coach, Gunter Brewer. Ultimately, I think the Eagles don’t go with Dez. JEREMY MACLIN - Here’s a familiar name. The Eagles’ 2009 first-round pick, now 30 years old, is still on the market. The problem is that he suffered a hamstring injury while working out earlier this month. Maybe he’s healthy by now. Although his production has sharply declined in recent years, I could see the Eagles have interest in Maclin. Philadelphia reportedly made an effort to sign him last offseason before he ultimately chose to go to the Ravens instead. Maclin obviously has familiarity with Doug Pederson’s offense, which isplus.KENNY BRITT - There’s a connection to Philadelphia here given that Eagles offensive coordinator Mike Groh was Britt’s receiver coach when he had a career year with the Rams in 2016. It sounds like the Patriots have interest in re-signing Britt, though.JORDAN MATTHEWS - I don’t see this one happening. It’s unclear if JMatt is even healthy after suffering a hamstring tear last month. Plus he’s just not the kind of player this team needs right now. They need someone with deep speed, not another possession receiver. But Carson Wentz does love JMatt.KENDALL WRIGHT - Another slot receiver type. I don’t think that’s what the Eagles are looking for right now, unless they want to put Wright in the slot and move Agholor to the outside more often. BRESHAD PERRIMAN - The Eagles worked out the 2015 first-round pick last week. They chose to sign Aiken instead. Perriman is reportedly working out for Washington on Monday.SHANE WYNN - Another player the Eagles worked out last week. He’s pretty small at only 5-6 Youth Brandon Graham Jersey , 166 pounds.PRACTICE SQUADBRAXTON MILLER — The Eagles signed Miller, 24, to their practice squad last week. Miller has some NFL experience since he’s played in 21 career games. But with only 34 receptions and 261 yards to his name, I’m not really sure the 2016 third-round pick offers the Eagles much of an upgrade over what they have now. Miller has theoretical upside, which isn’t nothing, but I don’t think adding him to the roster really moves the needle for the Eagles....VERDICTGordon is the highest upside play for the Eagles. There’s obviously risk there, but the Eagles are desperate right now. It’d be great if Howie Roseman can find a way to offer some kind of conditional draft pick based on how many games Gordon plays. With other teams potentially in the market for Gordon, though, the price might be too high. If that’s the case, Maclin could end up being the more realistic option for the Eagles here. Again http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com/zach-ertz-jersey-cheap , he knows the scheme and he fits the mold of the player they could use.What say you? Some good news for the Philadelphia Eagles ahead of their wild card weekend matchup against the Chicago Bears: Nick Foles is expected to start on Sunday. More from NFL insider Mike Garafolo:Foles left the Eagles’ Week 17 game against Washington early with a chest injury and did not return. FOX field reporter Laura Okmin said she saw Foles doubled over in pain inside the tunnel at FedEx Field. Adam Schefter was quick to report that the Eagles believed Foles was “OK” after bruising his ribs. Foles showing up for his postgame press conference was also taken to be a positive sign.Now we have even more indication Foles will start against the Bears. Philadelphia will need another big effort from their reigning Super Bowl MVP. Chicago’s defense is a tough unit that ranks No. 1 in defensive DVOA. Bears pass rushers Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks will be trying to get some hits on Foles to make him feel even more pain.Since coming in to start for the Eagles in Week 15, Foles is completing a whopping 77% of his passes for 962 yards (8.5 average), six touchdowns, three interceptions, and a 108.4 passer rating. It remains to be seen if Foles’ sore ribs will limit his effectiveness in Chicago. If Foles has to leave early, Nate Sudfeld figures to be the backup ... unless the Eagles decide to dress Carson Wentz? That doesn’t seem likely but it’s worth noting that No. 11 still hasn’t been placed on injured reserve.The Eagles must be thankful to have gotten a Sunday game instead of having to play on Saturday.UPDATE: Doug Pederson officially confirms Foles will start in Chicago.
