Eagles coach Nick Sirianni on Quez Watkins: I think he’s looked really good

Quez Watkins is entering a contract year and looks to break out after what he admitted was a disappointing 2022.

Philadelphia signed Olamide Zaccheaus during free agency, and there’s been talk that Watkins could be the odd man outcome roster cutdowns.

The Eagles have said all the right things about being excited about Watkins, and Sirianni reiterated his support for the former Southern Miss pass catcher on Thursday.

Watkins must hold off Zaccheaus in what should be an entertaining camp battle.

Watkins had just 354 receiving yards in 17 games last season, and his yards per catch plummeted to 10.7 after a 2021 season in which he logged 43 catches for 647 yards.
