But Goedert has caught on quickly enough that he could become an instant red-zone threat for the Eagles.
He’s really smart. High football I.Q. guy, starting tight end Zach Ertz said, via Jeff McLane of philly.com. He’s picked up the offense extremely well.
Goedert, who averaged 8.2 yards after the catch last season, caught 21 touchdowns in his career at South Dakota State. The Eagles drafted Goedert in the second round after the departures of Trey Burton and Brent Celek, who, together, played 68 percent of the offensive snaps.
The free agent went on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football on Tuesday morning to discuss the injury.
It was actually a very tough decision on my part, he said of exiting the program. For all ‘The Bachelorette’ fans out there, Becca’s an amazing woman. I’ve been able to play eight years so far, going on nine, and it’s my passion. I take care of a lot of people, my family, and it’s something that I love to do and it’s something that had to happen.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing in the long run: Beckham would still be just 28 years old when he hit free agency in the spring of 2021 under that scenario, and he can ask Kirk Cousins how it works out to sign the franchise tag twice and then hit unrestricted free agency.
But Beckham likely isn’t going to be that patient. He might not be ready to hold out just yet, but if the Giants aren’t coming close to meeting his contract demands, he’s not going to be a happy camper.
The uncertainty can weigh on a player.
Unfortunately, it can, Manning Adrian Peterson Jersey said Monday afternoon at the Guiding Eyes for the Blind http://www.officialfootballvikingshop.com/Nike-Adrian-Peterson-Jersey.html Golf Classic at Mount Kisco Country Club.
Manning knows of what he speaks. Back in 2015, he was in contract negotiations, going through Authentic San Francisco 49ers Jersey all the spring work and even the summer training camp without a deal. He eventually signed a four-year, $84 million extension in http://www.artsneed.com/sports/nfl-jerseys/san-francisco-49ers the second week of September, two days before the regular-season opener.
Looking back, Manning recalls that waiting game was no fun.
