The Eagles have suddenly established a rather big linebacker sized hole. With Mychal Kendricks released and Paul Worrilow out for the season, the team needed some emergency help and fast. According to an official announcement from the team, the first steps in adding some depth have been taken.

After attending rookie minicamp, the Arkansas State graduate gets his shot at making the Eagles 53-man roster. Coming off of a career in which he notched 173 tackles, 26.2 tfl, 1 interception and one forced fumble, the 5’10 230 lbs linebacker may appear a little undersized, but his Football IQ is what’s going to stand out to defensive coaches.
A true Sun-Belt sleeper, he played in all 13 games in 2016, ending that year with 79 tackles and 15.5 for a loss, ranking fourth on the team in tackles, averaging 6.1 per game.
