Philadelphia Eagles Release Wide Receiver In Shocking Move!

This has not been a good week for wide receivers in the NFL. There have been several cuts across the league and one of the most recent cuts came from the Baltimore Ravens.

It was announced earlier this week that the Philadelphia Eagles released undrafted 2021 free agent and wide receiver Trevon Grimes out of Florida University. While Grimes apparently showed promise in the off-season, it was surprising that he was released this early.

In other Philadelphia Eagles news, NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Isaac Bruce had some very complimentary words on our Devonta Smith. Check out what Bruce had to say below:

He isn’t the most vocal guy, you can start there, which is something I like. He has tremendous confidence when he does open his mouth, and you can see it in his play,” Bruce told ESPN. “He’s very similar to Marvin. I can see a lot of it as far as the separation is concerned, [how he] catches the ball well, strong hands, and his ability to run after the catch, very similar to the way Marvin played. My new teammates were kind of shocked just how small I was, or how I like to say, how big I was,” said Bruce, who was also questioned about the level of competition he faced coming out of Memphis. “I think the important thing is how DeVonta sees himself. When I looked in the mirror, I saw a 6-foot-5, 215-pound player. And I think he sees himself that way as well. His game proves that, because he plays big. When you look at Samson, the whole county, the whole town was trying to figure out: Where did Samson get his strength from? So obviously Samson couldn’t look like Arnold Schwarzenegger. But he has supernatural strength,” Bruce said. “So it’s the same thing with DeVonta. He doesn’t look that big, but he creates separation, he can run by you, he’s smart enough to play in a zone and find open spots. So I like everything about his game.”
