The Eagles have been around a long time. But if you look at their history at WR, it gets bleak. They haven’t had a 1000-yard WR since Jeremy Maclin in 2014. The McNabb years were infamous for having mediocre WRs. The Eagles have had great WRS for a short time. Like a single season of Terrell Owens, or a few years of Chris Carter. But overall, the Eagles Wide Receiver Corps have more often than not left something to be desired.
But this year has a chance to change that narrative. With the addition of AJ Brown, the continued development of DeVonta Smith, and Quez Watkins, the Eagles have serious talent in the WR Room. So much so, PFF even ranked them as the 4th best Receiving Corp in the NFL. Add in Dallas Goedert, and they have a formidable group of pass catchers for Jalen Hurts to target.
But where do they stack up All-Time among Eagles’ WR Rooms? Are they already the best before even stepping on the field? Or have the Eagles had better WR groups than we remember? Let’s take a look at where they fall among the top Eagles Wide Receiver Corps of all time. We are including anyone who catches passes in this. So for the sake of this article, Tight Ends and RBs who catch passes count towards having the best Wide Receiver Corps.
