With two weeks to go before the Eagles’ season opener against the Panthers, it appears as if the team may be on the verge of adding a wide receiver to its roster.
According to a report from FOX Sports, the Eagles are close to signing the veteran receiver.
According to the report, the team is leaning toward signing the former Eagles wide receiver.
According the report from Fox Sports, Boykin was a key contributor to the Eagles offense in 2015.
He recorded eight touchdowns, eight receptions, and nine receiving yards.
Boykin is a very talented receiver who can catch the ball in space.
He also played for the Cowboys in the past.
With the Eagles likely not having any other wide receivers available, Boykins signing would be a good move.
The Eagles should definitely add a receiver in free agency this offseason.
There are a lot of talented receivers available in free agent class.
Boykins can fill the role of a veteran wide receiver that could add some much needed competition to the offense.
The Eagles will need to add a big wide receiver before the season starts to give them more options.
