NFL players have been opting out of this upcoming season, and Goodwin becomes the first Eagle to do so. Family always comes first, so I completely respect Goodwin’s decision. The question now though is who replaces his spot?
Well, it looks like Chad Johnson, yes Chad Johnson wants a tryout with the Eagles.
@Eagles Here me out, I’m open & only require McDonald’s to function at a high level on Sunday’s, let’s not let this opportunity go to waste 🦅

All jokes aside this roster spot gives rookies John Hightower IV and Quez Watkins and opportunity to make an impact.

The Eagles could look to add an available veteran wide receiver on the market, or just go with the young guys to build chemistry with Carson Wentz. It will be interesting to see how the Eagles handle this news and if any other Eagles opt out this year.
Carson Wentz didn’t make the top 100 list but Dak was 46th?!
Yes, you read that right. Check out Steven’s video reacting to the news.
