Report: Eagles waive leading WR from last season
The extraordinary rise of Travis Fulgham comes to an end.
Reports confirm that the Eagles have released the former 6th-round pick:

Fulgham was a league-wide sensation for a five-week span last season, leading the NFL in receiving yards during that time:
Leading WRs weeks 4-8 last season:
- Travis Fulgham: 435 yards
- Tee Higgins: 413 yards
- Robby Anderson: 410 yards
- Stefon Diggs: 407 yards
- Julio Jones: 403 yards
- Allen Robinson: 401 yards
- DK Metcalf: 383 yards
Fulgham’s snap count fell mightily in the following weeks due to a number of reasons, most notably the return of Alshon Jeffery to the lineup. Fulgham ended the season as the Eagles’ leading receiver with 38 catches, 539 yards, and 4 TDs.
The Old Dominion product had a lackluster training camp and a costly fumble in the final preseason game all but sealed his fate. Fulgham will hit waivers first as the Eagles hope to retain him on the practice squad.
