Zaccheaus, 25, is coming off a career year with the Falcons, catching 40 passes for 533 yards and 3 TDs in a low-volume, inefficient offense. He’s a sure-handed receiver (just one drop last season) who will likely battle with Quez Watkins for WR3 duties in training camp. According to PFF, Zaccheaus played 60.9% of his snaps from the slot.
The South Jersey native attended high school at St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia, just mere miles from Lincoln Financial Field. With Zach Pascal leaving the Eagles in free agency, Zacchaeus returns home with an opportunity to catch passes from Jalen Hurts.
For what it’s worth, he also played with current Eagles’ backup QB Marcus Mariota last season. Let’s hope we won’t have to watch that connection very often.
