Alshon Jeffery at the Airport: 'Wentz is a future MVP'

Alshon Jeffery at the Airport: 'Wentz is a future MVP'

The Eagles made a big splash at the start of free agency when they inked former Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery to a one-year deal on Thursday.

We gave the deal high marks and are excited to see Carson Wentz team up with a legit No. 1 receiving threat.

And Alshon appears excited to team up with Carson as well.

CSNPhilly.com's John "Johnny Airport" Clark caught up with Jeffery as soon as he landed at Philadelphia International Airport and got some early thoughts from the newest Eagle.

"It was the best decision for me and my family," Jeffery said of choosing Philadelphia. "It was a great situation."

Clark then asked him about how much Carson Wentz had to do with his decision.

"[Wentz] had a lot to do with my decision. He's a great quarterback. The sky is the limit for him. He's a future MVP."

Good start, Alshon. Good start.

Watch: Fan lays out for incredible catch at Phillies-Rockies game

Watch: Fan lays out for incredible catch at Phillies-Rockies game

If you missed Monday night's Phillies game, you didn't miss a whole lot. The Phillies put up just three hits and lost, 8-1, to the Rockies at Citizens Bank Park.

However, there was one heck of a catch, and it came in the stands.

This fan went all out for an incredible one-handed grab in the bottom of the sixth inning. The snag, one of the better ones you'll see in the crowd this season, elicited a nice applause from the fans and a shoutout from Phillies broadcasters Tom McCarthy and John Kruk.

"Did he go over the top of the girl next to him?" McCarthy asked, impressed by the play.

"I think he was trying save her," Kruk said. "Let's go with chivalry, he was trying to save her."

Hat tip to this guy for making the catch of the night, which you can watch right here.

N.J. high school baseball player performs big-league worthy bat flip

With all the bat flips going on in Major League Baseball by the likes of Odubel Herrera and Jose Bautista, it's a good bet that kids watching the game are taking notice.

Gloucester Catholic High School's Chris Turco has apparently seen the celebration.

In a game on Sunday, Turco launched the ball high above the wall in left field. However, he may have launched the bat even higher.

Look at this ridiculous bat flip.

According to Kevin Minnick of South Jersey Sports Digest, both of the next hitters were plunked and Turco's team lost.

Despite that, Turco is giving the pros a run for their money in the bat flip department.
