A shortened season due to suspension, along with lackluster quarterback play in Chicago, limited his production in 2016. Despite this, Jeffery has shown that he can be one of the best receivers in the NFL, going well over 1,000 yards in both 2013 and 2014 when he played full 16-game seasons.
The Eagles also signed Torrey Smith from the San Francisco 49ers. Smith, much like Jeffery, wasn’t in a great situation last season. The 49ers had the worst passing offense in the league, thanks to a lack of playmakers, as well as Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick under center. In 12 games, Smith had just 20 receptions for 267 yards and three scores. Smith is going to be 28 next season, and playing on the opposite side of a receiver like Jeffery should open things up for him.
ESPN and NFLN are the official draft broadcasters, but there are other journalists who are affiliated with NFL TV partners.
Among the most notable is CBS’ Jason La Canfora. He told a reporter in 2013 that he had no problem tipping picks and felt it a journalistic duty. A couple years later, the NFL had enough, however.
At least one of those games will be played at 9:30 a.m. ET, despite the fact that a lot of people hate that timing.
It has also been confirmed that the Raiders will return to Mexico City this season, and they’ll host the Patriots. We just don’t know when, but we’ll find out Thursday.
The schedule release will let us know the specifics, but we do know the opponents each team will face in 2017.
We all are aware of the obvious matchups, like those that pit your favorite team against each division opponent twice in any given season. The league announced each team’s full slate of opponents back in January.
