traded up to select freak athlete Jordan Mailata in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft Womens Carson Wentz Jersey , people have been asking: “Why not let this guy play with the ball in his hands?”After watching the Australian’s rugby league highlights, It’s not hard to see why the question is asked.To this point, the Eagles have been clear that they view Mailata as an offensive lineman. The rookie exclusively played at left tackle in the preseason. But does that mean Mailata will NEVER get a chance to see what he can do with the ball in his hands? Doug Pederson was asked about the possibility during his Wednesday press conference.OMG, Doug said “it’s not out of the question”! It’s totally going to happen now! Mailata’s the Eagles’ season-saving secret weapon!So, not quite. Barring further offensive line injuries Womens Darren Sproles Jersey , Mailata isn’t even likely to be active for the rest of this season. He’s only suited up for one game thus far and he didn’t even play a single snap.Moving forward, Mailata will likely continue to be used as an offensive lineman. Why wouldn’t he when he showed intriguing potential a spot that’s way more valued than running back?The idea of Mailata carrying the ball and smashing dudes like he did in rugby league is fun to think about, no doubt. I wouldn’t mind testing it out next preseason. But I’ll believe it when I see it....RELATED READING: Jordan Mailata is just laughing it off The Jacksonville Jaguars announced that Blake Bortles WILL be their starting quarterback for their Week 8 game against the Philadelphia Eagles in London this Sunday.Bortles’ starting job was in question following the Jaguars’ decision to bench him in favor of Cody Kessler during Jacksonville’s Week 8 loss to the Houston Texans.The Jaguars have really struggled in their last three games. They’re averaging 9.3 points scored during that stretch. Bortles has completed just 54.6% of his attempts for 640 yards (6.46 average), two touchdowns, five interceptions http://www.authenticsphiladelphiaeagles.com/cheap-darren-sproles-jersey , and a 60.2 passer rating. He’s also fumbled three times. Although Bortles will be starting, NFL insider Adam Schefter reports he’s going to have a “short leash.” Schefter also notes the Jaguars will be splitting up first-team reps between Bortles and Kessler.Kessler looked slightly more competent than Bortles when he was thrust into action against Houston. The 2016 third-round pick completed 70% of his passes against for 156 yards (5.2 average), one touchdown, one interception, and a 79.3 passer rating. It goes without saying that the Eagles really need to take advantage of this Jaguars team that’s in disarray. Philadelphia can advance to 4-4 by winning in London. Losing to the Jags would be very embarrassing http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com/jason-kelce-jersey-cheap , especially given the quarterback disparity between Carson Wentz and Bortles/Kessler.
