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.

Former ESPN Host Michelle Beadle Had Some Brutal Things To Say To Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker

Harrison Butker’s speech at a college has provoked debate, ire, and controversy, and now, a former ESPN host is speaking out against him.

Kicker Harrison Butker of the Kansas City Chiefs delivered the commencement speech to Benedictine College alumni on May 11, and nothing but backlash has followed him ever since.

He stated that Pride Month was a “deadly sin,” denounced abortion rights, and told women they had been given “the most diabolical lies” during his lecture to a private Catholic liberal arts institution in Kansas.

The Kansas City Chiefs kicker told women during his sexist commencement speech last weekend that their “most important title” should be “homemaker.”

“How many of you are sitting here now, about to cross this stage, and are thinking about all the promotions and titles you are going to get in your career? Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world,” Butker said. “But I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world.”

“I can tell you that my beautiful wife, Isabelle, would be the first to say that her life truly started when she began living her vocation as a wife and a mother. … I’m beyond blessed with the many talents God has given me, but it cannot be overstated that all of my success is made possible because a girl I met in band class back in middle school would convert to the faith, become my wife, and embrace one of the most important titles of all: homemaker.”
