The other “QB” who was reallllly impressive at Eagles-Patriots practice is now a TE in former QB Tyree Jackson. He got injured yesterday on a great catch in back of end zone and will likely miss some time but he can be a serious mismatch if developed: 6-8, 245, very athletic.

This sucks. Tyree Jackson is a 6’8 athletic specimen who quickly transitioned from QB to TE. He’s out 8-10 weeks with a fracture in his back but hopefully when he returns he can continue his growth into a full-fledged TE and pair well with Goedert for the next few seasons.
I’m sure we’ll here more on this one shortly.
#Eagles TE Tyree Jackson caught two passes for 32 yards during a 2-minute drill to close out the 1st half.
Jackson has turned heads so far in training camp.
