Free Agency Frenzy: Eagles looking at all WR options
9 March 2017 Eagles News
The Eagles are not done signing wide receivers after signing Torrey Smith to a 3-year deal. Reports indicate the Eagles are looking at several different wide receivers.
Firstly, the biggest name the Eagles are in the mix for is Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery.

According to various reports, the Bears offered Jeffery a deal below $13 million a year. With that being said, it is unlikely he will resign with the Bears. If the Eagles want him, they will be able to get him. However, getting Jeffery would mean the Eagles would have to lose other players.
Another name being thrown around is Steelers wide receiver Markus Wheaton.

Wheaton is an intriguing player. He has never really been given a chance to shine in Pittsburgh. If signed, the Eagles will give him the chance to shine. He is a low-risk, high-reward player.
Also, from this tweet, the Eagles are exploring other wide receivers, but we do not have anymore names. Stay tuned, a lot more will come.
