NFL Free Agency: Eagles Add Veteran WR John Ross

NFL Free Agency: Eagles Add Veteran WR John Ross Sam Greene, The Northwestern via Imagn Content Services, LLC

Reports originally came out about a month ago that WR John Ross would be attending Eagles rookie camp to try out with the team.

It looks like that workout, along with DeVante Parker’s sudden retirement, has worked out in his favor.

The Eagles announced on Thursday that they had signed the former burner to a one-year deal.

The name gives the news a bit of traction, but it would seem rather unlikely to change what happens with the team.

Unless the Eagles luck into a great season from Ross, there are reasons Ross has not been in the NFL for several years and injuries had limited his production prior to that.

Of course, it’s probably a very good opportunity for Ross who will be competing with Britain Covey, Parris Campbell and a pair of draft picks for the likely two or three spots behind DeVonta Smith and AJ Brown.

Here’s to helping that some time away has allowed Ross to get to a healthier place and perhaps maintain his health so he can translate his speed into production.
