In what might be the brightest piece of news Eagles fans have read in about a month, the team have released Jamon Brown.

Jamon Brown joined Atlanta in 2019 after spending seven weeks as a starter for the New York Giants. He then started nine games at right guard for the Falcons and amassed a PFF grade of 53.2 (not ideal), but didn’t give up a single sack.

The Eagles signed the former Falcons lineman back in September. As a former fourth-round pick, there was some reasonable expectation that he’d be a viable depth piece moving forward. Those hopes were extinguished the second he stepped on the field.

Brown looked absolutely clueless against Baltimore. At one point, he stopped mid-play to adjust his glove. At another, he actually sacked his own quarterback, which is something not many linemen can put on their resume.

With Quinton Spain released today, it remains to be seen whether not the Eagles are trying to bring him in, but they did create over $5M of cap space by reworking the contract of Fletcher Cox.

If they don’t bring Spain in, they don’t actually have a healthy RG as a backup unless they feel comfortable moving Sua Opeta to the other side in a pinch. Keep your eyes peeled, there should be another move coming.
