Former Eagles WR Quez Watkins to sign with Steelers

The Quez Watkins era is over in Philadelphia, as the speedy wide receiver is signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

A 2020 sixth-round pick out of Southern Miss, Watkins played four seasons for the Eagles, logging 98 catches for 1,249 yards and six touchdowns.

His best season came in 2021, logging 43 catches for 647 yards and one touchdown.

Once thought of as a future building block at the wide receiver spot, Watkins has regressed since A.J. Brown arrived, and his production last season—15 catches and 142 receiving yards—signaled the end of his four-year stint in Philadelphia.
