The Philadelphia Eagles have signed tight end Cornelius Ingram to the practice squad.
Ingram attended the University of Florida and became a star tight end with quarterback Tim Tebow. Then Ingram missed his entire senior season due to an ACL tear.
Originally said to have first round talent, Ingram fell to the fifth round, where the Eagles selected him. He looked like a nifty pickup, until he tore his ACL again a few weeks into training camp.
The Eagles released Ingram before the start of the 2010 season, but have given him a second chance.
I’m surprised that Ingram was never picked up by another NFL team after the Eagles let him go.
With the disappointing season of Brent Celek, Ingram may earn a chance to play this season. It’s a long shot, but Garrett Mills and Clay Harbor haven’t done much this season.
I wouldn’t mind seeing Ingram play. He supposedly had first round potential. Let’s give him a chance to play.
