Full Version: Damaris Johnson
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
If he has no place on the offense then he has no place on the team. Put Jackson back on punts.
He does kick off returns as well, and who would you replace him with as an emergency WR?

That said, he won't be here in two years as we improve our roster.
This writer thinks he should be starting:
Because he can offer exactly what Avant doesn't. In 235 snaps last year, Damaris Johnson showed good YAC ability with 5.5 YAC/reception. If number held constant for this season, that would be good for the 16th best YAC/rec rate in the league. The reason why Damaris can get this YAC is because he's quick and shifty enough to forced missed tackles. Damaris forced a MT on ~26% of his catches in 2012. Among the best wide receives in the league at MT/reception last year were Percy Harvin (22 to 62) and Golden Tate (16 to 45). Each is around ~35%. Some other good WRs in the league arenít even above 20%. Funny enough, Johnson was named the Eagles' "Secret Superstar" by PFF.

Try it. Can't be worse than his special teams play.

Yeah, I really hate to see him back there returning kicks. On kickoffs, he takes the ball 8 yards deep, tries to return it and gets to the 10 or 15. Take a knee you idiot!
