Bryce Treggs impresses in Philadelphia Eagles debut
Bryce Treggs looked very good in his debut.
The Philadelphia Eagles were in desperate need of a speedy wideout this summer and boy, did they get one in rookie Bryce Treggs.
Treggs had a very encouraging NFL debut against the New York Giants Sunday, catching two balls for a total 69 yards. Though the Eagles ended up losing the game in heartbreaking fashion, it wasn’t Treggs who failed the team when he was called upon to make plays.
Philadelphia elevated Treggs to the active roster following the release of Josh Huff, who was arrested for possession of marijuana and a firearm loaded with hollow-point bullets last week. Despite playing only a small role against the Giants, Treggs proved that he’s already the team’s fastest receiver and can be a legitimate deep threat, as evidenced by this 58-yard reception.
Yup.@CJ_Wentz has a CANNON for an arm.

It’s only one game, so take this performance with a grain of salt. But here’s a little food for thought as the Eagles continue to search for answers in their receiving corps.
Career games with at least 65 yards:
Bryce Treggs: 1
Nelson Agholor: 0

Ain’t that something?
The Eagles will take on the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Look for Philadelphia to get Treggs more involved as he continues to get comfortable in his new role.
