The Eagles laid off a bunch of people and reportedly signed others
The Philadelphia Eagles announced the layoff of three players on Wednesday. They are the unsuccessful quarterback Jamie Newman, the unsuccessful wide receiver Trevon Grimes and the quarterback converted to wide receiver Khalil Tate.
In addition, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter (Adam Schefter), the team intends to sign former Jaguars receiver Michael Walker (Michael Walker).
Newman, Grimes, and Tate are all very famous names.
• QB Jamie Newman: 6’3, 235-year-old Newman is a bigger quarterback, he has many of the same skills (mobility, strength, good enough arms and composure under pressure) as Jaylen Hertz. He also struggled with accuracy like a hurt.
In this sense, the Eagles’ signing is logical, because if Hertz proved to be a good quarterback in the 2021 season and Newman could have developed into a capable substitute, then the Eagles would There is no need to completely change their offensive methods if Newman must participate in the Hurts game in 2022 and beyond.
However, Newman was dismissed so soon, he must not be very good at OTA. It is worth mentioning that it is reported that Newman did not receive any signing bonuses when he joined the team.
Newman had a strange college career, and talent evaluators had to sort it out before the draft. He lost to John Wolford early in his career in Wake Forest, then moved to Georgia, only to quit before the start of the 2020 season. Then his performance in the Senior Bowl was badly evaluated, which obviously did not help his chances of being selected.
• WR Trevon Grimes: Grimes is considered by some to be a draftable player. At 6’4, 220, his height is very suitable for this position, and his score on the professional game day is 4.50. His metrics paint an attractive wide receiver prospect. Even after suffering a torn ACL in the final season of high school, he was still a brilliant rookie. He initially studied at Ohio State University but later moved to Florida, where he was engaged in walking production. He was dropped/injured by the Eagles.
• QB Khalil Tate: From 2017 to 2019, Tate served as the starting quarterback for the University of Arizona for three years. The Hawks had previously had some success in turning other former quarterbacks into passers, as they did with Greg Ward and Treburton. The Tate project was obviously not taken.
As for Walker, he played 7 games for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2019. He has 2 career catches for 15 yards, 3 professional kickbacks (4.3 YPR) and 18 professional kicks back (22.8 YPR).
At Boston College from 2015 to 2018, Walker had 71 catches, completed 847 yards (11.9 YPC) and 5 TDs in the four seasons of his career. In his career, he has 106 times to return the ball, 48 times to re-kick, including 1 re-kick touchdown.
