Eagles sign JaCorey Shepherd to practice squad

The Eagles have made a minor roster move in order to add some more depth to the cornerback position, re-signing JaCorey Shepherd..only this time he’s on the practice squad. Offensive Lineman Darrell Greene is the player who has been waived in conjunction with the move.

A sixth round pick last year, JaCorey Shepherd didn’t make his preseason debut until this year, having battled injury problems since his arrival in the NFL. However, with eleven defensive backs on the roster, this harmed his chances of making the final 53-man roster and eventually resulted in Shepherd being amidst the roster cuts.

Shepherd joins UDFA standout C.J Smith on the practice squad, but as of right now, the Eagles will still have just three cornerbacks active on gameday until Leodis McKelvin retuns.
