I try not to be so repetitive but I can’t help but repeat the headline of this post: Alshon Jeffery is looking pretty darn good in Eagles green. The team posted some pictures/video of Jeffery wearing his full Philadelphia Eagles uniform on their official Snapchat account.

The Eagles also sent out the following tweet.

Jeffery doesn’t just rock the jersey well. He’s looked really good playing in it through two Eagles OTA practices open to the media so far.
PLAY OF THE DAY: Alshon Jeffery made a beastly catch in the end zone by winning out on a jump ball thrown by Carson Wentz. Rookie cornerback Rasul Douglas had tight coverage but it doesn’t matter with Jeffery. The veteran wide receiver is going to go up and get that ball. After Jeffery made the catch, he got up, stared Douglas down, and spiked the ball directly in front of the Eagles’ third round draft pick. In my head I’m imagining Alshon said something like “F*** you rookie! You can’t stop me!”
Still crazy to think that the Eagles actually landed Jeffery on a one-year deal after it originally seemed like they might not have a great chance to get him.
No. 17 should provide a big boost to the Eagles’ offense this year. As noted yesterday, he’s the perfect fit to pair with Carson Wentz.
