The Eagles announced on Tuesday afternoon that they have guard Jamon Brown from the Bears’ practice squad.

The 27-year-old was a third-round pick back in 2015 and has since spent time with the Rams, Giants, and Falcons, before ending up on the Bears’ practice squad.

Brown joined Atlanta in 2019 after spending seven weeks as a starter for the New York Giants. That would be a trend that followed suit when Chris Lindstrom suffered an injury in week one. Brown then started nine games at right guard for the Falcons. He amassed a PFF grade of 53.2 (not ideal), but didn’t give up a single sack. Expected to win the starting LG role in camp, Brown was unable to do so after sustaining a concussion and missing the majority of camp. The Bears promptly signed him to their practice squad and the Eagles promptly signed him off of it.

The move makes sense for a team starved of depth along the offensive front. Starting experience will be key for the Eagles and they don’t have a ton of it available. If they can get Brown up to speed over the next few weeks, he’s still a young enough talent to add some new levels to his game and could be a valuable depth piece down the stretch as a very demanding season rolls on.
