PHILADELPHIA ( – For the second straight offseason, the Eagles have gone north of the border in search of some help at the cornerback position, signing former Ottawa defensive back Mitchell White to a reserve/futures deal.

The Eagles dipped into the CFL to sign Aaron Grymes last season and the slot corner was excelling in the preseason before injuring the AC joint in his shoulder while making an interception in Pittsburgh.

Grymes was ultimately waived/injured before being brought back to the practice squad when he was deemed healthy and eventually making it to the regular-season roster for one game.

White, a Michigan State product, played two seasons with the Montreal Alouettes before joining Ottawa and winning a Grey Cup in 2016 while intercepting three passes.

Both Grymes and White join a group where Leodis McKelvin, Jalen Mills, the rehabbing Ron Brooks, C.J. Smith and Dwayne Gratz are also under contract. Veteran Nolan Carroll, meanwhile, is scheduled to be a free agent in March.
