Some Former Philadelphia Eagles Finding Homes Quickly
With all the cuts that have happened, I checked out where some of the “former’ Philadelphia Eagles have landed. There really weren’t many surprises when the Eagles made their decision on the 53- man roster. Obviously, there will still be moves to be made and nothing will be final. That’s usually how it goes when it comes to young teams or transitional teams. They usually bring players in and out to see if they fit the direction or style the team wants to go in. So be prepared for a lot of changes through out the season.
With that said, let’s see where some of the former Eagles ended up.
Tight end Clay Harbor and linebacker Chris McCoy were claimed off waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Harbor got caught up in a numbers game in Philly, and he should do well in Jacksonville. McCoy, who many thought would make the 53-man roster, should do fine down there as well.
Wide receiver Russell Shepard was been claimed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I thought that Shepard could possibly earn one of the last spots with the Eagles. He was very good in the few practices that I saw and performed decently in the games. Shepard could be one of those players that the Eagles regret letting go. He could end up being like Danny Amendola or Brandon Gibson when they were cut.
Linebacker Adrian Robinson was also picked up by the Denver Broncos. Robinson was here just long enough to have a cheese-steak and then he rolled. He was picked up by the Eagles in the Felix Jones trade on August 23.
