Now, it's time to take the next step.

New faces: WRs Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, CB Ronald Darby, RB LeGarrette Blount, QB Nick Foles, DT Tim Jernigan, DE Chris Long, OL Chance Warmack, CB Patrick Robinson, S Corey Graham; rookies DE Derek Barnett, CB Rasul Douglas, WRs Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson, RBs Donnel Pumphrey and Corey Clement.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles suddenly seem loaded at wide receiver.
After signing Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith in the offseason and adding Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson in the draft, Carson Wentz has more accomplished and talented options.
