Do the Eagles need to find a replacement for Mack Hollins?

Releasing Mack Hollins might end up being the Eagles’ most applauded decision of 2019. The former fourth-round pick was worryingly unproductive this season, in a year where the Eagles desperately needed to step up in wake of an injury crisis. But with a quarter of the season remaining, the Eagles only have four wide receivers. If they are truly going to mount a playoff push after last week’s dismal loss, is that really enough?

Probably not.

Greg Ward Jr. sits behind Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, and JJ Arcega-Whiteside. The issue here is that Ward is a prominent slot receiver, and Arcega-Whiteside is nearly an identical clone of Alshon Jeffery.
