The Roster Shuffle Begins For The Philadelphia Eagles
Well, it didn’t take long for the Philadelphia Eagles to starting shuffling their roster again. It took less than 24 hours to be exact. The Eagles were awarded cornerback Shaun Prater on a waiver claim Sunday. Prater was released by the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday.
So who was the casualty? That would be cornerback Curtis Marsh, the former third-round pick in 2011 for the Eagles. The Eagles have always liked Marsh for his size (6-foot1), but that is all the dude had was size. The Eagles won’t be missing him anytime soon. Marsh finished his Eagles career with 22 games played, two passes defended, and five tackles. Stellar…
Prater was a fifth-round pick of the Bengals last year, though he spent the season on Injured Reserve with a knee injury. So who is Prater? He was a three-year starter at Iowa, where he had seven interceptions and four forced fumbles, earning All-Big Ten honors as both a junior and a senior. He is listed at 5-foot-10 and is 190-pounds.
I don’t think the shuffling is done in the secondary, but as it stands right now they have Prater, Bradley Fletcher (starter), Cary Williams (starter), Brandon Boykin (nickel), Jordan Poyer and injured Brandon Hughes.
The Eagles are also looking to bring back a few that they just let go of. That would be Matthew Tucker, Michael Bamiro, Ifeanyi Momah and G.J. Kinne. Momah coming back? Yes, you know how much I love Skee-Lo. The Eagles are waiting to see if they clear waivers on Sunday first.
