Before the 2019 NFL Draft, I declared JJ Arcega-Whiteside as a guaranteed bust. Everything has been coming up Trey lately. When you’re wrong, you’re wrong. For Howie Roseman, it’s time to admit he was wrong about JJ Arcega-Whiteside. Cut bait no. There’s no point in even carrying him on the roster. JJ Arcega-Whiteside flat out can’t play.

The clowns over at PFF loved the former Stanford product. They even declared him a first round talent. Imagine being that dumb. Seriously, imagine if this guy would have been picked in the first round. No surprise there. They can’t scout. He can’t run routes. We have seen it all season during his rookie season in Philadelphia. I was at the Monday Night game against the Giants. I can’t remember ever seeing a worse route runner. He’s that bad. Not that this is anything we didn’t see at Stanford. Arcega-Whiteside was an awkward player at Stanford with limited speed, no route-running ability, and relied solely on winning the jump ball. That doesn’t fly in the NFL.

In 14 games, Arcega-Whiteside has 8 receptions. Carson Wentz doesn’t even bother throwing him the ball. We saw this on Sunday. Greg Ward is just flat out better than him. Over the last two weeks, Ward has 11 receptions for 95 yards, and a touchdown. He’s basically outperformed Arcega-Whiteside in two weeks and didn’t make the initial roster cuts. Oh, Ward is also a converted quarterback.

JJ Arcega-Whiteside stinks. It’s not hard to see. I knew it when he was at Stanford. Well, unless you work at PFF. Then you think he belonged in the first round. Dear, Howie. I know it’s hard. You were wrong about JJ. The sooner you cut bait, the worse you will damage your franchise. JJ Arcega-White is unplayable bad.
