Is this former Eagles Linebacker going to replace Jordan Hicks?


Philadelphia Eagles fans were left upset earlier today when news broke that the team have placed rookie sensation Jordan Hicks on Injured Reserve. It of course means that a roster spot has opened up, but one former linebacker is already hinting at a potential return…

Emmaunel Acho had this to say on twitter:

Nothing has been released officially by the team yet but Acho is under the impression he is coming back to Philadelphia. The Eagles waived him back in August after a thumb injury meant he had to undergo surgery. Because of the injury waive, he wasn’t eligible to re-sign with the team until a few weeks back.

Acho was picked up in 2013 by the Eagles and played 14 games last year before an impressive camp was cut short by the injury. Are we going to see the return of ThemMANuel Acho? linebacker played in 14 games with Philadelphia last season after originally being acquired by the Eagles during the 2013 offseason.
