5 Eagles Who Could Surprise Everyone This Year | In search of the next Travis Fulgham – NJ.com
Michel Jacquet. The 6-foot-1 cornerback was a surprise addition to the roster last season. Used as an outside corner when Avonte Maddox missed the time due to injury, Jacquet saw plenty of time late in the season. Jacquet played badly in the December 27 game against the Dallas Cowboys, allowing seven catches for 143 yards and a touchdown. His size could be an asset against some of the league’s biggest receivers, and an extra year of experience could help him bounce back. If the Eagles don’t add another veteran cornerback to the roster, Jacquet could contribute again and play better and keep improving.

For the first time in his life, Chris Scott Jr. took part in the Philadelphia Pride festivities in 2016. As a gay black man, this was a defining moment for Scott as he had yet to find his place. in Philadelphia’s LGBTQ + community. In the middle of the celebration, Scott made his way to Penn’s Landing and stumbled upon an information table for the Greater Philadelphia Flag Football League (GPFFL), a 7-on-7 adult recreational league in South Philadelphia. Although he grew up in Philadelphia, Scott had never heard of the league, but it immediately piqued his interest.

The Evan Engram Riddle: How Can The Giants Better Use Their Tight End? – Large blue view
2020 has been a fascinating season for New York Giants tight end Evan Engram. The tight end caught 63 passes for 654 yards, his most since his rookie season in 2017. He was named in his first Pro Bowl, which could also speak to the depth – or lack thereof – of the position in today’s NFC. But Engram also caught a single touchdown pass, the lowest in his four-year career, and his 10.4 yards per reception was also the lowest score since entering the league.
