Good morning gridheads.
It’s July 25, with only one day of training camp in the books, and already NFL.com, the house organ of the National Football League, thinks both Torrey Smith and Nelson Agholor (above) are in jeopardy of not making the team:
Based on the breadth of his career, Smith came at a discount (three years, $15 million) in free agency. Based on last year’s play in San Francisco and the minimal $500,000 guaranteed in his contract, Smith isn’t even a total lock to make the roster. Positive offseason reports indicate that Smith should be safe, although teammateNelson Agholor inspired even more shorts-and-shirts optimism.
The team’s first-round pick in 2015, Agholor is currently slated to be Philly’s fourth receiver — at best. He can’t take a step back in camp or he’ll risk going the way of so many other Chip Kelly acquisitions.
