Alshon Jeffery at the Airport: 'Wentz is a future MVP'

Alshon Jeffery at the Airport: 'Wentz is a future MVP'

The Eagles made a big splash at the start of free agency when they inked former Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery to a one-year deal on Thursday.

We gave the deal high marks and are excited to see Carson Wentz team up with a legit No. 1 receiving threat.

And Alshon appears excited to team up with Carson as well.

CSNPhilly.com's John "Johnny Airport" Clark caught up with Jeffery as soon as he landed at Philadelphia International Airport and got some early thoughts from the newest Eagle.

"It was the best decision for me and my family," Jeffery said of choosing Philadelphia. "It was a great situation."

Clark then asked him about how much Carson Wentz had to do with his decision.

"[Wentz] had a lot to do with my decision. He's a great quarterback. The sky is the limit for him. He's a future MVP."

Good start, Alshon. Good start.

Howard, Rollins, Utley, Manuel connected again in fun way

This was pretty darn cool.

The core members from the greatest run in Phillies franchise history were all connected in a way on Wednesday night.

Jimmy Rollins, who has been performing in-studio analysis for TBS during the MLB postseason, was joined by special guest Ryan Howard.

The ballgame they watched and analyzed? Game 4 of the Dodgers-Cubs NLCS, featuring old friend and teammate Chase Utley.

And then beloved former manager Charlie Manuel joined the fun. Let's just say he was a fan of the TBS crew.

Next season marks the 10-year anniversary of the 2008 world champion club.

Let's hope all four can reunite at Citizens Bank Park next season for the festivities.

That'll be special.

Twitter roasts the heck out of Markelle Fultz's brutal free throws

Twitter roasts the heck out of Markelle Fultz's brutal free throws

Oh man, oh man, oh man. It's finally here. The 2017-18 Sixers season is underway with our squad locked in a pretty tightly contested game down in Washington after a quarter of play.

We've already seen Joel Embiid attempt to destroy the world -- and get fouled.

But the most buzzed about moment from the first frame of the Sixers' young season was clearly when Markelle Fultz went to the foul line and... well, tossed up some ugly bricks.

This isn't the first time we've seen this but it is the first time non-preseason Sixers fans are seeing it. We wondered aloud if the Sixers were doing the right thing with Fulz prior to tonight's game. The lack of information on his injuries is troubling. So what's the deal with that form?

Well, Twitter had a field day with it.

Although Fultz's shoulder looked perfectly fine on this delicious block! He also had a couple of early buckets.

It's a long season, rook. Just please work on that free throw motion.
