The Philadelphia Eagles made an interesting move on Thursday, signing a former first-round pick and highly-touted wide receiver.

On Thursday, the Philadelphia Eagles announced through X/Twitter that they have signed 2017 first-round pick John Ross to a one-year contract. Ross retired last offseason after signing a future/reserve contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Ross was drafted ninth overall by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2017, a month after he broke the record for the fastest 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine at 4.22 seconds. Chiefs rookie wide receiver Xavier Worthy broke that record this year by running a time of 4.21 seconds.

Now, Ross get the opportunity to revive his career on a star-studded Philadelphia Eagles team that just lost free agent signing DeVante Parker to retirement.

Unfortunately, injuries derailed the former Washington star’s tenure in Cincinnati, as he was limited to 27 games over four years there. Ross’ best season came in 2019, when he had 28 receptions or 506 yards and three touchdowns.

In four years with the Bengals, Ross caught 51 passes for 733 yards and 10 touchdowns. He last played football in 2021, catching 11 passes for 224 yards and one touchdown in 10 games with the New York Giants.

Philadelphia Eagles Could Revive John Ross’ Career

If there’s one place for John Ross to revive his NFL career, it just might be here in the City of Brotherly Love.

The Eagles have an MVP candidate at quarterback in Jalen Hurts, two elite wide receivers in DeVonta Smith and AJ Brown, superstar running back Saquon Barkley and a Pro Bowl-caliber tight end in Dallas Goedert.

Throw in Nick Sirianni’s offensive genius, and this simply feels like the ideal opportunity for John Ross to show that he can produce at the NFL level. With all that speed and star power surrounding him, Ross just might manage to emerge as a playmaker in the Eagles’ offense.

Philadelphia Eagles superstar offensive lineman Jordan Mailata does not go to bed hungry on the nights before NFL games.

Jordan Mailata, listed at 6-foot-8 and 365 pounds, has emerged as one of the best offensive tackles in the game since becoming a regular starter back in the 2020 season. Maliata was a seventh-round pick (233rd overall) in 2018, but the former rugby star endured several injuries that prevented him from suiting up in his rookie and sophomore years.

Mailata’s impressive size, athleticism and work ethic have been key components in his feel-good story and rise to NFL stardom. On top of that, Mailata crushes a Superman-like meal on the night before each game to order to keep himself in game shape.

In an appearance on “The Dave Chang Show”, Mailata detailed what he eats as a meal before he goes to bed for Eagles games.

Mailata stated he has an entire bx of bow-tie pasta with shrimp, rosé sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, garlic, salt, pepper and chili flakes. And that’s only part of the meal, as he also crushes a 20-ounce steak, three pieces of garlic bread and a Sprite.

For breakfast, Mailata eats an eight-egg omelette with spinach, cheese, and mushrooms, anywhere from four to eight pancakes and orange juice. Though he admits it’s partially a superstition, Mailata also enjoys the meal any time he eats it.

Mailata revealed there was one time where he went against the meal plan and gave up a sack in the following game, hence why he stays committed to his routine.

Jordan Mailata’s Meal Plan Is Working Perfectly

Judging by his incredible athleticism, physique and performance on the field, it’s clear that Mailata has no reason to move away from his meal routine. It’s clearly working, both physically and mentally.

Mailata and the Eagles will open their 2024 season with a showdown against the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 6 in São Paulo, Brazil.
