We are one week before the NFL Draft, and the Eagles have made a move to improve their (already loaded) receiving corps. They have signed Olamide Zaccheaus, according to his agents.
Zaccheaus had 40 catches for 533 yards and three touchdowns last season with the Atlanta Falcons, where he started 13 games.
A native of Plainfield, New Jersey, the 25-year-old went to high school at St. Joe’s Prep in Philadelphia before going to Virginia.
In total, Zaccheaus has played 55 games in the NFL, accumulating 94 receptions for 1,328 receiving yards and eight touchdowns.
He will likely compete with Quez Watkins for the slot receiver position. If he loses the battle to Watkins then he would at least take over the role that Zach Pascal played for the Eagles last season. Pascal played in every game mostly serving as help with run blocking but he still was able to grab 15 receptions for 150 yards and a touchdown.
