We can add another layer to the Alshon Jeffery drama saga.
According to a Twitter profile, named Die Hard Eagles Fans, the former Pro Bowl wideout has wiped out all affiliations with the Eagles franchise.
“Alshon Jeffery has taken away all of his affiliation with the #Eagles on his twitter account. This might be old news, but he also deleted his Instagram. Looks like he knows something we don’t.”
To add to that, Jeffery’s Instagram account has been deleted, while his Twitter has no mention of being associated with the Eagles. It appears that his time with the franchise is over.
For that, GM Howie Rossman omitted Jeffery’s name when talking about veteran leaders in the locker room.

Guys like that. And now Marquise Goodwin …”

Jeffery signed a four-year, $52 million contract with the Eagles, but has failed to live up to expectations. Instead, Wentz has viewed tight end Zach Ertz as his favorite target. The team also added first-round pick Jalen Reagor to the mix.
The 30-year old is coming off one of the worst seasons in his career, posting just 490 receiving yards in 10 games. He is set to make $15.4 million in 2020, which is a tad high given his injury history.
According to NBC writer Peter King, Jeffery was “likely to be traded on draft day.” Of course this didn’t happen, but it could be very soon.
Rossman’s omission just proves that the Eagles appear ready to give up on the veteran.
