NFL Offseason: Speedster John Ross To Try Out At Eagles Minicamp

NFL Offseason: Speedster John Ross To Try Out At Eagles Minicamp Sam Greene, The Northwestern via Imagn Content Services, LLC

The Eagles are hoping they might be getting a bit of a boost.

Mike Garafolo reported on Sunday that WR John Ross would be attending Eagles rookie camp this week.

Ross is a burner and had held the combine’s 40-yard dash record until this year.

He did not make a roster in 2022 and retired in July of last season, but seems like he’ll be coming in to see if he’s got anything left in the tank.

His speed and quickness made him a first-round pick in 2017.

He’s struggled with a combination of knee, shoulder and groin injuries so maybe some time away from the game has helped him in the health department.

If he’s still got it, he’s got the type of speed that is better than that of Quez Watkins and could certainly work well for him in an offense where AJ Brown, DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert are taking all of the defense’s top cover guys.

He put up his best season in 2019, where he had 506 yards despite missing 8/16 games due to injury.
