Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has been grinding this offseason
When healthy, veteran Philadelphia Eagles wideout Alshon Jeffery is the perfect partner for Carson Wentz. However, No. 17 has had his fair share of injuries while with the Eagles, including his season-ending foot injury in 2019.
Despite that tough luck, the former South Carolina standout is sitting on pins and needles waiting for his chance to get back on the gridiron and make plays in front of fans. He’s been on the grind this offseason trying to get his mind and body right, evidenced with the photo from a workout this week.

Are we sure that’s Jeffery? Goodness, the 30-year-old wideout looks absolutely jacked these days. And of course if you love the Eagles, this is great to see. Clearly, Jeffery is fired up to silence all of his haters.

Earlier in the offseason, there were countless folks out there who were calling for the wide receiver to be traded or released. With his dead cap hit of $26.1 million, though, cutting Jeffery was simply out of the question.
Looking ahead to the 2020 campaign, both Jeffery and DeSean Jackson are looking to bounce back with strong seasons. It goes without saying, but Wentz will be relying on the two heavily to get the offense going early and often.

Before going down with his foot injury last year, Jeffery caught 43 balls for 490 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games. What will he be able to do this fall and winter? Eagles Nation has high hopes for the athletic receiver. We’ll see if he’ll be able to deliver for them.
