Former Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson recently worked out for the Eagles, according to a source who spoke with Doug Kyed of NESN (on Twitter). Dobson has been out of work since New England cut him prior to the 53-man deadline.
Dobson, 25, is a former second-round pick, but he didn’t do a whole lot during his time with the Pats. In three seasons with the club, the Marshall product totaled just 53 catches for under 700 yards. Making matters worse, the majority of that production came during his rookie season. In the last two seasons, Dobson has tallied only 16 receptions.
The Eagles signed pass-catchers Rueben Randle and Chris Givens during the offseason, but neither made the club’s initial roster despite the fact that they both secured guaranteed money. Jordan Matthews and 2015 first-round pick Nelson Agholor both have solid season debuts against the Browns yesterday, but Philadelphia’s wide receiving corps isn’t all that impressive as a whole. Behind their top two options, the Eagles boast Josh Huff, Dorial Green-Beckham, and Bryce Treggs at wideout.
The Jets worked out Dobson late last week but he left without a deal.
