It's been about five minutes since the Eagles were linked to a receiver, so here's a report about a receiver they were previously linked to.
The 49ers are set to release wide receiver Torrey Smith, according to a report Monday by CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
Smith had been linked to the Eagles before the NFL trade deadline last season while the team desperately searched for wide receiver help. On Monday, there were reports linking the Eagles to the Rams' Kenny Britt and the Browns' Terrelle Pryor.
Smith was set to make over $9 million this season. Cutting him will save San Francisco $4.675 million this season, according to Spotrac.
After a successful stint with the Ravens, the 28-year-old receiver signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the 49ers. He struggled in San Francisco, especially in 2016 when he posted career lows in catches, yards and touchdowns in only 12 games.
It's no secret the Eagles are lacking at the receiver position. Smith could add a vertical element to their offense. Since he entered the league, Smith has averaged 17 yards a catch. Among players with at least 200 receptions, Smith trails only former Eagle DeSean Jackson (17.4).
The NFL's legal tampering period begins Tuesday at noon. Buckle up, Eagles fans.
