 The Philadelphia Eagles officially placed Mike Wallace Youth Dallas Goedert Jersey , who suffered a fractured fibula in Week 2, on the injured reserve list earlier on Wednesday but his season might not be over just yet. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports his understanding is “that there is optimism that Wallace can return late in the year. That indicates a clean break without a lot of collateral damage.”This report echoes what Doug Pederson had to say about Wallace during his Wednesday press conference.It also matches up with his potential recovery timeline, which could be around six-to-eight weeks. By being placed on injured reserve, we do know for sure that Wallace isn’t eligible to be activated until after Week 10. This means he’ll miss at least seven games; note that the Eagles have a bye in Week 9. We also now know that one of the following three players will not be coming back to the 53-man roster this season: Wallace, Mack Hollins, or Richard Rodgers. The NFL only allows two players to be returned from injured reserve per season. Hollins and Rodgers will be eligible to be activated after Week 8 since they were placed on IR leading up to Week 1. It’ll be interesting to see what the Eagles decide to do. It’s too early to say for sure what will happen because a lot of things can change from now until then. We also have to see how the players progress during their recoveries. For now, it’s nice to know Wallace isn’t guaranteed to miss the rest of the season.Should the Eagles have interest in Josh Gordon? The Cleveland Browns made some big news on Saturday evening by surprisingly announcing they’re releasing Josh Gordon. But it appears they might not be releasing the 27-year-old after all. NFL insider Adam Schefter is reporting the Browns will actually be trading Gordon and Ian Rapoport says up to five teams are interested in acquiring him.With Philadelphia looking into wide receiver help recently, it’s only fair to ask: Should the Eagles take a shot on Gordon?The case for Josh GordonGordon is certainly an intriguing talent. At 6-3, 225 pounds, he boasts a good blend of size and athleticism. He had an incredible 2013 campaign with Cleveland when he logged 87 receptions for a whopping 1,646 yards (18.9 average!) and nine receiving touchdowns. He also rushed for 88 yards on five attempts that year. Gordon accomplished those numbers despite having the likes of Jason Campbell http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/darren-sproles-jersey-authentic , Brandon Weeden, and Brian Hoyer as his quarterbacks that year. If there are any doubts about his talent, which I doubt there are, just watch his highlights.Now for the part when the Eagles come in. They’ve obviously been looking receiver help recently. The Eagles showed interest in the following wide outs this week: Corey Coleman (signed with the Patriots), Breshad Perriman, Kamar Aiken (signed with the Eagles), and Shane Wynn. Coleman and Perriman are worth highlighting as former first-round picks who flamed out with the teams that originally drafted them. Gordon’s situation isn’t identical to theirs, of course, but it’s not totally dissimilar to that mold. The Eagles are interested in receiver help since their current corps isn’t in great shape. Their current group of receivers combined for a mere 43 receiving yards on nine receptions (a putrid 4.7 yards per reception) in Week 1. Projected No. 1 receiver Alshon Jeffery returned to practice this week but he still hasn’t been cleared for contact drills. Mack Hollins isn’t eligible to return to the active roster until after Week 8 since he was placed on injured reserve. Shelton Gibson, who is questionable for Sunday’s game, popped up on the injury report with a knee injury. If he can’t play http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/stefen-wisniewski-jersey-authentic , the Eagles will be down to the following receivers against the Buccaneers: Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace, DeAndre Carter, and the aforementioned Aiken. Not ideal.Adding Gordon at a low-risk cost feels like the kind of move reigning NFL Executive of the Year Howie Roseman would make. The cap-strapped Eagles are in position to take a risk on Gordon’s affordable $790,001 cap hit this year. Not to mention that he’s set to be a restricted free agent after this season, which means he should be relatively cheap and easy to retain for at least one more year beyond 2018. Again, if the cost is low, why not take a risk on Gordon?The case against Josh GordonAlthough talented, Gordon is clearly troubled. He’s played in just 11 out of 65 possible regular season games since the 2014 season. Gordon missed two entire seasons after being suspended for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy and then checking himself into a rehabilitation facility. After being patient with him for so long, the Browns finally decided they’re done with him. There are a number of reasons why that appears to be the case. A sampling:Gordon is just way too unreliable for the Eagles to give up any kind of significant resources to acquire him. And even though Philadelphia’s receiving corps situation might seem dire, all hope is not lost. Jeffery is expected to be back sooner than later. Hollins should be ready to play after Week 8. Wallace was held without a catch in Week 1 Womens Chris Long Jersey , yes, but the speedy vet ran two of the top 10 fastest routes in the league per Sheil Kapadia. Agholor had a very strong training camp and there’s reason to believe he’ll be more effective than he was against Atlanta. Carter and Gibson had good summers as well; they earned their roster spots. I think the Eagles can ultimately get by with the pass catchers they already have. The verdictAgain, if the Eagles can acquire Gordon for very little risk (like a sixth-round pick), then I guess sure, why not.Ultimately, though, I think the idea of Gordon is much more tantalizing than the reality of him. How can a team truly trust he’s not going to get suspended for violating the league’s conduct policy once again? He’s skating on very, very thin ice. I think too often fans get obsessed with the idea of their team getting a “steal.” We see this in the draft every year with players falling lower than expected. Sometimes taking a chance on those guys works out. But there are many times when it just doesn’t and in hindsight it wasn’t hard to see why teams passed on those guys. It’s fun to think about the Eagles adding Gordon at a low cost and him coming in and being this awesome weapon for the reigning Super Bowl champs. But I just think that’s much more fantasy than it is reality. Besides, I think there are teams even more desperate for receiver help than the Eagles out there. Can’t you just see the Cowboys going after Gordon? And then him ultimately not working out there just like a number of other troubled players they’ve take chances on?
