Eagles WR Zach Pascal sends message to detractors labeling him a “blocking receiver”
New Eagles’ WR AJ Brown has been the center of attention this offseason, understandably so.
Brown has eclipsed 1,000 yards in two of his first three seasons in the NFL and plays like a running back with the ball in his hands. Earning his way to a $100M extension, Brown projects to be the alpha in Philadelphia’s new-look offense.
The Eagles’ other WR acquisition this offseason, Zach Pascal, doesn’t want you to forget about him either.
Pascal is known to be a gritty player who excels in short-yardage situations and is a willing blocker in open space. The 214-pounder isn’t afraid of the dirty work, but he’s here to do damage in the passing game as well:

Nah i will really route somebody ass up .
Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni groomed Pascal in Indianapolis for three seasons and was eager to get him in Philadelphia once the 27-year-old hit free agency. Pascal had back-to-back campaigns with 600+ yards prior to last season.
He caught just 38 passes for 384 yards in 2021 while the Colts leaned heavily on RB Jonathan Taylor. With training camp less than three weeks away, it’ll be interesting to see how the depth chart shakes out as Pascal and Quez Watkins compete for WR3 snaps.
