Quez Watkins caught 1-of-2 targets for eight yards in the Eagles’ Super Bowl LVII loss to the Chiefs.
But his failure to haul in an eminently catchable pass is all any Eagles fan will remember.
Watkins dropped what would have probably been a touchdown pass in the second half. Ultimately, this was a four-point swing in a three-point game since the Eagles had to settle for a field goal.
Watkins’ deep game yards plummeted from 647 in 2021 to 354 to 2022 even as he appeared in all 17 games.
He was the lone Eagles pass catcher not to benefit from the team’s greater aerial commitment. Now due to see his salary spike from $895,000 to $2.743 million, Watkins will probably have to restructure his contract if he wants to remain an Eagle.
