Eagles Sign CB Glover-Wright
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - The Eagles made a minor roster move Monday, signing cornerback Tay Glover-Wright to replace the injured Randall Goforth.
Goforth, an undrafted rookie out of UCLA, tore his ACL Friday when he got tangled up with receiver Paul Turner.
Glover-Wright, 6-foot, 180 pounds, was undrafted out of Utah State in 2014 and has had cups of coffee with Atlanta, Green Bay, and Indianapolis.
The 25-year-old played in two regular-season games with the Colts in 2015 and joins a CB position in which Jalen Mills and Patrick Robinson have been running with the first team on the outside while Ron Brooks handles the slot position in the nickel.
CJ Smith and rookie Rasul Douglas have been handling second-team work on the outside with Aaron Grymes in the slot. Also in the mix are ex-CFL standout Mitchell White and undrafted rookie Jomal Wiltz while rookie second-round pick Sidney Jones remains on the NFI list as he rehabilitates from a torn Achilles.
