Former NFL receivers Hines Ward and Bobby Engram are being considered for the Eagles vacant wide receivers coaching job, according to Paul Domowitch of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Ward spent this past season as an offensive assistant with the New York Jets. Engram has been an assistant with the Baltimore Ravens for the last five seasons.
Ward played 14 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, racking up 1,000 receptions for 12,083 yards and 85 touchdowns.
Since Ward isn’t a primary assistant, the Eagles wouldn’t need permission from the Jets to speak with him about the opening.
Engram also played 14 seasons in the NFL, accumulating 650 receptions for over 7,700 yards and 35 touchdowns.
The Eagles have changed their wide receivers coach each season under Doug Pederson. The Eagles are also looking for a new offensive coordinator after they parted ways with Mike Groh.
