The Facts: Jeffery's last two seasons have ended in pain, but he doesn't want out of Philadelphia. At least that's what Jeffery's agent said with a tweet Friday: "[Jeffery] loves being in the city of Philly and playing for the @Eagles!!!!"
Diehards Line: The tweet came as a response to a piece from The Athletic's Connor Hughes, which mulled receiving options for the Jets in the event Robby Anderson leaves via free agency and listed Jeffery as a candidate. Sandwiched between a bunch of helpful information was one key line: "The Eagles are looking to move Jeffery, league sources confirmed to The Athletic. And Jeffery would welcome the change of scenery." As NFL.com's Nick Shook suggests, even if Jeffery's agent makes it clear the receiver likes being in Philadelphia, the Eagles have plenty of reason to consider moving on from Jeffery starting with the Lisfranc injury that ended his 2019 season early, an injury that's proven to be problematic for other players and puts the receiver on track to return to the field in September -- the start of the season. Jeffery is also 30 years old and accounts for a hefty chunk of Philadelphia's cap space: $15.6 million. Moving on wouldn't be so easy, though. Jeffery's dead cap number is astronomical at $26.1 million, meaning it's going to take some financial gymnastics to make a deal work. ... Still, it's a situation worth watching in coming days.
