DeSean Jackson. Nelson Agholor. Alshon Jeffery.
Combine the first initials of those three starting Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers in that order and what do you get?
No need for the term “11 personnel” anymore, just call the Eagles’ three wide receiver sets their DNA package.
Through one game so far, DNA has combined for 15 receptions, 214 yards, three receiving touchdowns, and one rushing touchdown (due to Carson Wentz’s pass for Jeffery technically being ruled a lateral). Not bad!
Most of that production game from Jackson’s big game, of course, but there are going to be games where the opponent really focuses on taking the Eagles’ speedster away. It’ll be up to Jeffery and Agholor to take advantage of less attention on them at that point.
There’s ample reason to feel good about this trio on the field. So, how are we feeling about this accompanying nickname?
The official team account is in on it.
