It’s generally believed that Alshon Jeffery is the mystery source feeding information to ESPN reporter Josina Anderson, sowing unrest in the Eagles’ locker room via anonymous snitching.
This narrative has become generally accepted over the last year or so, a topic that comes up whenever Anderson or Jeffery’s name is mentioned, as if one is inextricably linked to the other in 2020.
Thing is – do we really have any hard evidence connecting the two?
We don’t, actually.
This is basically a smoke and fire situation, with a lot of circumstantial evidence, but nothing concrete. The only on-record report accusing Alshon Jeffery of being the rat took place last October, when Howard Eskin went on the 94 WIP morning show and told Angelo Cataldi straight-up that Jeffery was Anderson’s source.
You know what happened after that. Anderson came out and denied the report, saying that Eskin had “no knowledge” of who her source was. Jeff McLane then asked Doug Pederson, later that day, if Eskin was leaking information on behalf of the team. Those two reportedly exchanged words after the press conference, then Mike Missanelli jumped into the fray, calling Howard a water boy and accusing him of buying his own Super Bowl ring.
