JJ Arcega-Whiteside hype train has arrived at the NovaCare Complex
The Eagles were back in pads yesterday. They will go live today with full contact. One name that has been floating around practice and all over social media is none other than JJ Arcega-Whiteside.
JJ had a stellar day yesterday, hauling in THREE touchdown catches in the end zone. Then, he drops this quote after practice:
J.J. Arcega-Whiteside was just asked about a touchdown catch from practice.
He responded, “You’ll have to be more specific. I had two or three of those today.”
👀 He’s right.

Arcega-Whiteside is confident, which is something that we haven’t seen here at all in Philadelphia.
Touchdown #1: Nate Sudfeld threw a dime to the back left corder of the end zone and JJAW beat Rasul Douglas with a toe-tapping catch in the end zone.
Touchdown #2: Wentz found JJAW in the back center of the end zone. JJAW again, secured the ball and found a way to stay in bounds.
Touchdown #3: Reporters are calling this one the best catch of the summer. Wentz threw a BULLET through traffic and JJAW was able to reach back his hand to snag the pass. Not a clean catch apparently, and there was question as to whether Wentz was even targeting him, but yet again, JJAW toe-tapped for his third score of the day.
Coverage has been telling us that JJAW entered camp faster and more confident. His body control and god given athletic ability and size has been on display so far this summer. Let’s hope he can continue trending upwards as we get closer to the NFL season.
