“How do you lose sight of that guy? How do you lose sight of Travis Fulgham?”
By Tom Brennan
That was Fox commentator Jonathan Vilma, the former NFL receiver, expressing surprise that the Steelers overlooked the Eagles new star all day:
He had 10 receptions for 152 yards and a touchdown after catching a game-winning TD last week in San Francisco.
Fulgham, the former Old Dominion walk-on, has become a gem in the wreckage of this Eagles season.
He had already been cut from 2019 teams (the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions) since coming into the league in 2019.
And here is a compilation of Fulgham’s last two months:
August 9th: waived by the Lions
August 10th: claimed by Packers
August 19th: waived by the Packers
August 20th: claimed by the Eagles
October 4th: catches game-winning TD
October 11th: 10 catches, 152 yards, 1 TD and counting

With his emergence, the Eagles have a pair of young guns:
First-round pick Jalen Reagor, who will return soon from a UCL tear in his thumb.
So they can turn the corner on 33-year-old DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and 30-year-old Alshon Jeffery (Lisfranc).
