Bryce Treggs Is Back in Philly
On Thursday, the Philadelphia Eagles signed receiver Bryce Treggs to their practice squad and cut receiver Rashard Davis. Treggs began the season in Philly and was having a very promising preseason racking up 12 catches for 141 yards in three games. Despite the strong showing, he did not make the 53-man roster. He would remain on the Eagles practice squad until October 4th when the Browns signed him.
To The Land
Treggs made his Browns debut on October 8th against the New York Jets, where he made two catches for 28 yards. During his time in the Land, he would have five catches for 79 yards. With the return of Corey Coleman and Josh Gordon, the Browns released him. Within hours of his release, Bryce was on his way back to the City of Brotherly Love.
Mixed With Controversy
Many will look at his run-in with Packers corner Damarious Randle. Bryce appeared to use a dirty block, which left Randall concussed. After an exchange of words through social media, Treggs consequently was fined $25,000. Treggs later claimed that he was starting a GoFundMe page. Treggs has also had some exchanges with Eagles fans on social media for his playlist while using Uber.
The Practice Squad
The speedster out of the University of California has shown potential. Thrown into the fire last year due to injuries, Bryce showcased downfield speed and could be a deep threat down the line. He had a career-high 69 receiving yards against the New York Giants and added another catch against the Packers.
Following the signing, the Eagles practice squad stands at ten along with OG Darrell Greene, DT Winston Craig, C Jon Toth, S Tre Sullivan, CB DJ Killings, WR Greg Ward Jr, CB DeVante Bausby, G Josh Andrews and TE Billy Brown.
At just 23-years-old, Treggs will look to standout in a crowded Eagles receiving group.
