Not much has been said about Alshon Jeffery in Philadelphia this low season, but Eagles general manager Howie Roseman addressed the topic today.
During a conference call with reporters, Roseman admitted that there are questions about Jeffery’s future in Philadelphia, but said that until Jeffery is healthy enough to pass a physique, those questions don’t have many answers.
“Obviously, the elephant in the room is Alshon,” said Roseman, through Mike Kaye of NJ.com. “It must become healthy“.
A report from last month said Jeffery would welcome a change of scenery, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he was going anywhere. He is 30 years old and about to undergo Lisfranc’s surgery, which means he is probably a few months away from being able to practice or play.
Then there is the problem of its $ 15.4 million limit this year, which is something the Eagles would definitely prefer to get off their books. But this year he owed $ 11.5 million guaranteed, so it seems unlikely that any other team would be eager to trade for him.
Given this contract, a change of scenery seems unlikely and the Eagles will only have to hope that Jeffery will heal and play better this year than last year, when he averaged 11.4 meters per career.
