Well, that didn’t take long! Only one day after signing with the Eagles, Alshon Jeffery is already getting familiar with the city Philadelphia. And he has some company with him: Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. The newest Eagles quarterback-wide receiver connection was spotted at Del Frisco’s Steak House in Philadelphia on Friday evening (hat tip BGN Radio’s @JohnBarchard).
The caption reads:
What better way to welcome Alshon Jeffery & Torrey Smith to #philadelphia than to enjoy the best steak in the city?? Thanks for bringing your new teammates in Carson!

That sure is a lot of #hashtags. And apparently Torrey Smith was there last night too, but he’s not in this photo. (So where is he? Did they make him take the picture?)
But back to Carson and Alshon. Pretty cool to see they’re already bonding. The two players don’t have an extensive history with each other but Jeffery already appears to be a big believer in his new quarterback.
“[Carson] had a lot to do with it,” said Jeffery when asked he signed with the Eagles. “Like I said, the sky’s the limit for him. I told them, I texted him, me and him texted back and forth. I told him my job is to help him win an MVP, which I truly believe. The sky is the limit for him. He’s a great quarterback.”
Wentz and Jeffery have the potential to be a special duo in the city for a long time. It’s great to see they’re already forming an off-field relationship.
