Wilson, Dontre

Cards: Sage 2017, Sage 2017 Peak Performance
Acquired: 2017, Box Breaker

Dontre Wilson played college ball for Ohio State. A school known for cranking out NFL grade talent, Dontre WIlson was not selected in the 2017 Draft, thanks in part to injuries incurred over his college career. During his time at the Horseshoe, Dontre rushed, received, kick returned, and punt returned for the Buckeyes. He finished with 77 receptions for 925 yards and 10 TDs, rushed 65 times for 428 yards and 2 TDs, had 53 kick returns for 1280 yards, and 31 punt returns for 243 yards.

Dontre initially was rumored to be signing with the Chargers, but a doctor scuttled the free agent contract because of a previous foot injury.  Dontre signed as a free agent with the BC Lions in October of 2017 and spent the remainder of the season on the franchise’s practice squad.

I really like these Peak Performance insert cards. They look great with autographs on them. The design on them seems random enough, but the gloss, finish and colors are all very vibrant, making the player pop from the canvas.

Evans, Dane

Card: Sage 2017
Acquired: 2017, Box Breaker


Dane Evans played college ball for the Tulsa Golden Hurricane from 2013 to 2016. He’d pass for 904 completions on 1577 attempts, for 11,680 yards, with 84 touchdowns to 47 interceptions.  Dane was the Hurricane’s all-time leading passer.  Evans was considered a sleeper in the 2017 NFL Draft, but he went unselected. He’d be signed by the Eagles, but be waived in the final cutdown before the regular season. In October of 2017, Dane signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL and was added to their practice squad.

Gibson, Shelton


Card: Sage 2017
Acquired: 2017, Box Breaker

Shelton Gibson played in the Big 12 for the West Virginia Mountaineers from 2014-2016.  An interesting prospect that reminded scouts of a poor man’s DeSean Jackson, Gibson put up 84 receptions for 1,898 yards and 17 TDs in 3 years. He finished with a guady 22.6 average yards per reception. After trading down twice during the 5th round the Philadelphia Eagles selected him with the 166th pick overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.

It was a hard charge uphill for Gibson to make the roster, but each and every day he made incremental improvements that coaches took notice of. Shelton battled a case of the dropsies during the preseason, but coaches feel that there is something developmentally there the Eagles can work with. He got on the field briefly during Philadelphia’s 2017 Super Bowl Championship run and caught 2 his first two passes for 11 yards against the Cowboys.
