Eagles re-sign Aaron Grymes to practice squad


The Eagles have officially announced that they have re-signed cornerback Aaron Grymes to their practice squad.

The former CFL standout was previously released by the Eagles from the active roster, in order to make room for Paul Turner, who was promoted to the 53-man roster on Monday.

The Eagles have bought Grymes back to the practice squad, essentially making the Paul Turner promotion a simple swap in roster spots.

Like Turner, Grymes was a preseason standout, but was was waived by the team with an injury settlement during the final preseason cuts. He suffered a separation of his AC joint in his shoulder after securing an endzone interception versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, but was resigned to the Eagles practice squad following the injury of Ron Brooks.

Grymes had 8 interceptions during his three year career in the CFL, with 4 of them coming in 2015. According to Bleacher Report he ran a 4.6 40-yard dash time in 2013. The defensive back recorded a total of 101 tackles during his time with the Eskimos, 43 of them accumulated in his career year in 2015.
